LED strip lights are what are known as voltage sensitive. This means that a signal from the LED strips will either be on or off. There is no signal when the voltage is high or low. This is made possible because the dimmer is made of one tiny, chip-like strip of silicon, instead of the more common electronic strip.
The basic LED strip lights use two separate "nodes" to illuminate the same wall. But now they use a combination of the two LEDs on the strips. This allows them to be dimmer than the traditional voltage sensitive LED strip lights.
When you are installing the LED strips, you will have to disconnect the power source from the lights. Before installing the strips you will have to break them down into two smaller segments. This is to make it easier to bend the segments.
Most LED strip lights can be installed without a soldering iron and solder. Most of them can be used to test the power, but sometimes you will have to "pad" the connection with a rubber (or felt) patch to prevent it from pulling or twisting.
The first step to install the LED strip lights is to cut out the existing lights. You will have to drill holes to fit the bulbs into and connect them to the light posts.
The strip lights also have a light control box that will allow you to use the bulbs as single light bulbs or change them into a strobe mode when the need arises. Usually the light bulbs will change on the same minute they are triggered.
The next step is to connect the LED strip lights to the LED posts. The strip lights may also have a power switch on them that allows you to power them on and off from the power outlet. Just like a regular light, they must be wired so that it's easy to install and remove.
When it comes to connecting the strip lights to the light, you will be able to use a wire for the ground, and a wire for the signal. With most LEDs, you are going to have to use a heat shrink for the signal wire to fit.
The next step is to solder the wire directly to the circuit board. You may have to increase the connections on the circuit board so that you can fit the wires into the holes.
It is advisable to make sure that the strips that you are using are all the same distance apart. This allows you to use a little more LED. The same principle is used to install lamps that use a mixture of strip bulbs.
Since LED strip lights are voltage sensitive, you will have to test the lights to see if they are working correctly. When they do not illuminate the strip, you will have to increase the distance between the strips to make sure that the lights are properly aligned.
