A useful but expensive strip of lights
I bought this to add to my other hue lights. An interesting difference: The hue lights always turn on standard white and then yo I bought this to add to my other hue lights. An interesting difference: The hue lights always turn on standard white and then you have to change the colour. The lightstrip always turns on to the colour it was last time it turned off. You also can't group the lightstrip in the same way within the hue app. I installed this as under counter lighting and added it to my home automation system so the lights turn to a warm yellow when I enter the kitchen. Love it! …

I'm familiar with LED s I recently received my light strips and I'm very happy with the quality and characteristics of this light. I'm familiar with LED strips as I've used others for under cabinet lighting. The qualities of the light are very similar to what I've previously experienced with this light type.

Is the strip reusable?
- Asked by Tom R from Burke
- Dec 11, 2014
I assume the tape is sticky for only one use.
What I did was to NOT peel off the backing but ins I assume the tape is sticky for only one use.
What I did was to NOT peel off the backing but instead used double sided foam tape strips to attach the lightstrip where I wanted it. When I moved recently, I just peeled the lightstrip away from the foam strips and used a fresh set of double sided foam tape strips to adhere the lightstrip in place in my new home. If you never peel off the backing on the tape on the lightstrip itself, this should allow you to reposition the lightstrip as often as you like with impunity. …

There are spots every so often where you can cut the strip shorter. Many similar light strips have There are spots every so often where you can cut the strip shorter. Many similar light strips have the ability to add additional strips to extend the length. While Philips doesn't seem to sell a connector to do this easily I'm sure you could do it by soldering tiny jumper wires to the contacts on either side of where you cut it. The only question then would be how many additional LEDs can the power source power. …
