LED strip lights – lighting-zone 1
The conservatory’s LED strip-lights are 10-watt RGBW LED tapes, a total of 18 metres in length. A warm-white chip was chosen for ‘white’ component of the RGBW quad LED (3,000 Kelvin).
These LED strips are powered by a single 200-watt LED driver (IP67-rated, to protect against moisture from the adjacent jacuzzi). To control the LEDs, ‘zone 1’ on the multizone remote is used, after pairing via RF to a 4-channel LED receiver.
LED downlights – lighting-zone 2
‘Zone 2’ of the multizone remote controller is paired with six colour-change LED downlights.
Housed in a standard MR16-fitting unit, these downlights mix light at source (behind the lens) with high-quality Luxeon LEDs that pack all three colours onto one single chip. They’re available with a choice of lens options –15, 25 or 40 degrees – offering wider/tighter beams.
The downlights’ in/out RJ45 sockets are daisy-chained using cat-5 cables to a single power supply.
Lighting zones 1 and 2 can be controlled independently or synchronized and controlled together, all through the multzone LED remote controller.
To complete the conservatory’s lighting palette, the owner installed neutral-white (4000K) LED bulbs as uplights.
Intended as highlights, these single-colour bulbs are controlled via a wall-mounted panel.
