I had installed a Phillips Hue lightstrip behind my desk. The desk is “floating” away from the wall 1 3/4 inches. The lightstrip is facing up about 1 inch away from the wall in an aluminum channel. The lightstrip LEDs are spaced far apart and because it is so close to the wall, the light emitted does not diffuse evenly on the wall. The individual LED reflections off the wall are very noticeable.
I have tried to defuse the lightstrip using an assortment of diffusers, but nothing works.
My Phillips Hue lightstrip recently stopped working due to a power outage and while I was researching a replacement, I learned that you can buy lightstrips with the LEDs closer together. I have seen as high as 144 per meter. Phillips Hue does not offer a solution with an increased number of LEDs
I’ve seen set ups for one meter of 144 LEDs per meter but anything beyond one meter requires more power, from what I understand so far. The desk has two sides along the wall measuring a total of 20 feet.
How do I build and power a 20 foot lightstrip of 144 LEDs per meter?
Thanks in advance!
