If this tape light is hard wired with the 30 watt or 60 watt 12V power supply, can it be dimmed with a Lutron C-L Dimmer for LED use (DVCL-153PR)?

Thanks.

These lights are to be plugged in to a non-dimmed receptacle (receptacles should never be dimmed anyway) using their 30 watt power supply, and then between the power supply and the light tape, you wire in the dimmer switch. this dimmer includes a wall plate mount if you wanted to mount this switch in a wall.
If the receptacle is switched, and you do not intend on always adjusting the dimmer, you can hide the dimmer in the cabinet (forgo the wall mount option) and simply turn the lights on and off via the wall switch. Read Less

Answer: 
Absolutely, the 60 Watt AC dimmable power supply (#205397019) is more than adequate to power two 12’ lengths of RibbonFlex Pro. Unless you are looking to expand upon your lighting at a later date, there is no advantage to selecting this driver over our 45-Watt Dimmable Driver (item# 206697709), which is also adequate to power this amount of lighting.

It depends so much on the lengths and gage of the leads going from the transformer to the LEDs and the length of the LEDs. 12 volts is very susceptible to voltage drop over distance so the transformer must be sized to all the variables.

On the product page of the Home Depot website you will find a link to an installation PDF file that has tables and instructions to estimate the transformers you will need. Going oversized will cost a bit more but will not hurt the LEDs. Going undersized will cause the lights to be dimmer or maybe not light at all in extreme cases.

Answer: 
Yes. the dimmer switch is wireless ready. You just need to purchase the remote after that. But the dimmer switch is required to be included in your project. Does the dimmer need to be visible or wall mounted? No. You could tuck it away, but it is the wireless receiver.

For example, the way my kitchen cabinets are setup, I have three separate walls with cabinets. No single wall of cabinets would be more than 12 feet. One wall would need 4ft, another 8ft, and the last 12 feet. Is this possible to setup to a single wall switch and if so, how?

Answer: 
If there was a low voltage splice kit you could extend each string to one power supply, but I don't think there is one. Also, the connectors the manufacturer supplies for the light string are difficult to attach and their instructions are very poor. I had a hard time engineering the single connection I needed, so multiple connections would likely be unreliable. They need to redesign the connectors.

Yes, this is certainly possible, and there are a few ways you could accomplish this. If you have AC power available in all three locations connected to a single wall switch (common when replacing existing under-cabinet lighting), then you can use a separate LED Dimming Driver (like the 24W, homedepot.com item# 206697697) for all three cabinets, linked together on their 120-Volt input to the same switch Read More

Replace the wall-switch with a standard in-wall AC dimmer for on/off and dimming control of your lights.
If you have a regular outlet at each location (not switched), you could use a separate Standard Power Supply, like the 30W (homedepot.com item# 203227252) coupled with a 2-in-1 LED Dimmer (homedepot.com item# 203227246) for each cabinet location. Then, all three dimmers can be linked wirelessly to a single Wireless Touchpad for 2-in-1 dimmer (homedepot.com item# 205884027) for simultaneous on/off and dimming control.
Finally, if you are able to run low-voltage cabling between each cabinet location, you could power all three areas using a single power supply. This typically requires more work, but is the most cost effective solution in terms of material use. Please contact support@armacostlighting.com for further assistance with your lighting project.

Answer: 
I have 2 sets of cabinets on facing walls. Since there is a large voltage drop when running the 12 volt wires I bought 2 smaller 12v transformers and ran 120v lines to each transformer from my wall switch. The transformers are located close to the center of each run of under cabinet 12v lights so the run of 12v wire is very short. It works wonderfully. These lights really made my new kitchen!!!

No reason you couldn't also run the ceiling lights off the same switch but I find we do not use the ceiling lights any more. So it's nice to have them switched separately. Read Less

Answer: 
Absolutely you can do this. I've wired many homes with three or more areas at once. All you do is bring all three feeds to one location with a single switch. Provide power to one side of the switch, then the switched side feeds all three of your locations. I usually switch the 120 VAC of the power supply, but you can also switch the output of the power supply.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 192 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best choice for under cabinet lights These LED lights went up as easy as tape. The only trouble I had was the direction the tape fit in to the connectors. Integration with a dimmer and power supply was a breeze. And they look fantastic. They are far more energy efficient than the halogen spot lights normally used, and require far less effort to install. I had to drill some holes through my cabinets for wires to pass through, and I did a more advanced installation where I needed to install a receptacle above my cabinets and also install the low-v dimmer in the wall, but these things are not needed in many basic installations. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NOT WHITE LIGHT, BLUE LED HUE If your looking for white warm under cabinet lighting, skip this! The white comes out as a blue hue and makes food look awful. However, we are buying more to do over and under the cabinets. The colors and color options are incredible. If you go to strobe and hold the speed up button, it is an actual strobe light. We will have two total so we can do two different colors for sports games and holidays like fourth of july (red and blue) or green and yellow for Green Bay Packers. Kitchen is only half done and just playing around with it since it will definitely not be used under the counters for normal light. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Lighting for a good price! Lights were pretty straight forward to install. The biggest issue is getting the wires to all the cabinets so they are hidden. I choose to attach the lights on the inside ledge of the cabinets so you don't see the LED reflections on my counter tops. I also thought I may need the dimmer but I actually liked the brightness without a dimmer. Did my whole kitchen for around $100.00. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful, soft accent lighting. The LED warm white tape light provides beautiful, soft accent lighting. Installation was done by a licensed electrician. He had some issues with installation but resolved issues to his and our satisfaction. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fun project. Customer loved it. Best I've seen so far. Really bright. Warm white. Easy to solder to the little solder bumps at multiple locations on the tape. It's hard to see the plus & minus symbols so be careful there cause it won't work if you get it wrong. I used some heavier old speaker wire to join em. I put a switched outlet inside cabinet. The power supply is NOT included, it's extra so it can be pricy. It wasn't in stock at my local Depot. February 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lessons learned from a lighting project first-timer Allow me to share a list of things to be aware of before you buy: 1) These lights are brighter than my kitchen lights, which looks a little odd. Make sure you have really bright kitchen lights. 2) Definitely by the dimmer that's sold separately. It's worth the 20 bucks. 3) The lighting comes with one sample connector, then the directions tell you to go out and buy more. Make sure you buy these connectors while at the store. I used one lighting set for my cabinets and I needed 7 connectors. 3) If you do buy the connectors you will need a drillbit that's at least a 1/2" so that you can fit the connector through the holes. 4) Buy extra wire while you're at the store. It's really cheap so get more than what you need. It will save you a trip later because you might make a mistake in measuring and cutting. 5) You won't need to go out and buy a solder kit but definitely spend a couple of dollars on a pack of wire nuts and electrical tape. 6) There are lots of YouTube videos on installing these lights that are worth watching before you start. 7) Armacost customer service was very helpful and patient with my multiple calls. Once the lighting is installed, it looks great! Hopefully these tips help you avoid multiple trips to the store. Cheers, Lighting project first-timer February 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality tape lights I've used a lot of different LED tape lighting, and this tape light is of the utmost highest quality. It is also the highest lumen output as well. I still use super glue when securing it to surfaces, as I don't trust the tape but also will admit I haven't used it without super glue. I just wish the cost would come down on these. I also wish I could pick these up at the store rather than have to order them online. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little lights! What a great product. We were able to light up an old china cabinet. Since you can't see the lights, it looks great and doesn't spoil the look of the cabinet. These are pricey, but do a beautiful job, and are easy to DIY. December 29, 2015
