It is not necessary to install the wiring before the backsplash is completed, however, some projects can achieve more discreet wiring connections by routing the wiring in that area. If you are bridging your RibbonFlex Pro lighting between two separate sets of cabinets, hiding the wiring between is often accomplished by running it behind the backsplash or drywall, but there are many other alternative mounting options. This includes running wiring inside or above your cabinets, through a crawlspace, basement ceiling, cove molding, or attic space above - it all depends on your specific project details. Many kitchens without free-standing cabinet sections do not require this type of wire routing at all. Please contact our support staff at support@armacostlighting.com, and we can offer additional recommendations based on your application specifics. Read Less

Answer: 
For full multi-color control of your RGB lighting, it should be paired with a color controller, like our Slimline (homedepot.com item# 205622961). The 2-wire (+,-) 12V input of the color controller would then be wired to a fused output of your battery, using standard wiring methods.

Answer: 
Yes, you can have two or more lengths of Armacost Lighting’s RibbonFlex Pro controlled by one remote control. In addition to a 12V power supply, you will need a color controller with these lights, like our Slimline RGB Controller (homedepot.com item# 205622961). The included handheld remote can be paired to multiple controllers for simultaneous control of both zones of lighting. Alternatively, you can Read More

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome We bought this undercabinet lighting for my new kitchen and we love it!! We love how it changes colors and the different types of white. Now for the installation we needed to make four separate runs underneath the kitchen cabinets so we called the company and asked what wire could use to make jumpers. The lady on the phone told is 18 gauge four wire would do it or 20 gauge four wire would do it so we bought the 18 gauge ran for separate leads to the power supply which hooked up to the small wireless remote box we bought and basically just connected the wires to the strips that we cut. The directions were not very good for a layperson but it seemed to work out very nice May 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful brilliant and bright colors, but provided connectors don't work well These LEDs are bright and beautiful. I really love the light they put out - and combined with the controller you get all sorts of lovely colors. That, and you can fade the brightness of any color, which also changes the effect. The provided installation instructions are outstanding - obviously written by someone who has actually used this product. They are clearly written using plain English and correct grammar - which is not a given these days. It helps to sit down and read all the instructions before starting on the project. My one complaint is concerning the connection options provided. The connectors they provide to link together tape lights don't work well. They come loose if you breath the wrong way, and then are useless if you try to reconnect them. (The tape terminals get dented, causing the connector to no longer work). I ended up have to hold one connection together with a paper clip! To splice in a longer run between linked tape strips, I purchased "European style" four post connectors directly from Armacost. Much to my dismay, they were way too large for the tiny stranded 22 AWG wires that come with this system! It just doesn't make sense! So, the instructions mention soldering as a way to get superior connections. I think that is the takeaway here. If you really want a robust and reliable installation, you need to be handy with a soldering iron, and find your own reliable connectors to splice together very small wires. December 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Armacost RibbonFlex Pro LED Lights the Winner I've read about and seen LED lighting for some time now and knew that's what I wanted in my new office. Searching the net I came across Armacost at HomeDepot and I quickly knew I found a winner. But I had no idea it would be that good! This lighting is so good I've been able to remove my separate task lights. Besides being able to dim the lights and change their color if installed per their recommendations these lights cast no shadows. The spread precision and quality is beyond my wildest dreams. I am a Photoshop user and not having any shadows anywhere in my work area is critical. Heck - I don't even need my back-lit keyboard anymore. Armacost you rock! December 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install after reading reviews After reading reviews from others I found the install pretty easy and would like to .share my tips. 1st since my backsplash is tiled direct wiring would have been difficult so I bought the wireless remote and plugged it in the outlet for the microwave. Next I read comments about the connectores not working well. I used a terminal block to gap between both sides of the microwave. My install was for 1 strip cut in 2 for either side of the microwave. I ran the wires from the remote to a terminal block then to each strip. Both ends of the strip have a lead but since i side is 2' long and the other 4' i had to use another block for a jumper wire from one side to the other of the microwave. I used 4 wire communication wire about 20 cents a foot. I could not find a terminal block at home depot and bout one with 10 connections $9 at Lowes it cuts easy with scissors into blocks of 4 West Marine has an even better quality.block for 2,4, or 6 wire connections. Overall not too difficult it just would have been better if everything was pre-engineered and you did not have figure out so much on your own. I have 2 Home Depots near me and only 1 carried the product. February 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Inconsistent Appearance We had this product installed by an electrician and in any area over 6ft we have drastic color shift. I bought the colored LEDs versus the white to allow me to select the warmness of the lights. Instead my lighting is pinkish on one end and greenish on the other end. There were also a few bad spots in the center that had to be swapped out but nothing seems to correct the color shift. I wish I would have just installed the white. (They also flicker if on the lower dim settings). May 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Installed color LED in kitchen, love the look I installed 8 foot color LED and a color mixer in my kitchen. I absolutely love the lights. The lights arrived with clear directions and were simple to install. I cut the strip in 2 pieces and connected them together with 22awg wire to go over the stove area. We had a problem with some colors on the strip that was away from the power supply. I contacted Armacost technical support and worked with an excellent representative named Matt. He immediately reassured me that he was going to help me get the lights working. Very confidently. We walked through a couple troubleshooting steps, then Matt determined the was a problem with part of the set. He promptly shipped out a new set. I installed the new set in 15 minutes after they arrived, and they work well. These lights are a great value. I don't know why anyone needs anything more elaborate, or expensive for their kitchen area. We love playing with the color choices. We mounted the color mixer and power supply inside a cabinet that holds our microwave. I definitely recommend buying these lights. I've attached a few pictures. October 29, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible I had to return and repurchase the lights, power source, and remote multiple times because nothing would work consistently. The concept is great, but the quality was terrible. When my third remote stopped working, I returned the entire set. October 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works good Works great but very easy to break and if wires touch lights blow. October 27, 2015
