I’ve tried searching here and with the UTFG method, but there’s an overwhelming amount of info out there. I’m in the process of a kitchen remodel that will incorporate LED lighting for under cabinet task lighting (CCT) as well as over cabinet and toe kick ambient lighting (RGB+CCT), in either 2 or 3 zones. I’d like the ability to control those both with HA and a physical remote.
What should I be looking for as far as controllers are concerned? I.E. what protocol/technology should I prefer? What general pitfalls should I look out for? If you’ve done something similar, what did you use and what problems did you have?
I am technically and mechanically inclined; I write PHP and some Android/Java code, so I’m not afraid of that aspect if needed.
Thanks for any advice!
