looking to add more light after installing my camera, Riuda 644 controller, any help would be greatly appreciated, harryb
The easiest is to buy a USB LED stick. 20-50 LEDs with a USB cable. Plug into the controller or a wall wart
Something like this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32800621610.html
After using / comparing LED strip to T5 tubes, I highly recommend T5 tube lighting over LED strip inside of the machine. The distribution of light and output is much better.
I used camper/motorhome interior lights on mine. Cheap & bright.
Similar to these…
I put one in each corner angled down to the bed and it’s plenty bright in there now.
One of the things I did that I REALLY like is to mount a box and 120v duplex receptacle inside the machine and plug a 12v wall wart in to it to power the lights.
The AC outlet is wired to the mains input with a toggle switch on the front panel to turn it on and off.
That allows me to turn the lights on independent of the machine being on so I can set things up and work inside the cabinet and have plenty of light without the machine running and being noisy. I really like that.
Thanks Bo , i am very much appreciative
Thanks Jeff , i am looking into them.
High Hank, i had never consider them… good info
I used 2 linear led modules of 280mm long (tridonic) with an led driver, whole cellar gets lit up.
