I have made hanging lamps with Hue Gen2 lighting strips inserted. 4 x 1 m strip facing down plus 2 x .7 m strip facing up (to bounce of ceiling). So, that’s 5.4m (18 foot) total per hanging lamp.
I want to hide the transforming in a corner by the light switch to avoid big, bulk transformer near light. I have option to run the ‘post-transformer’ cable (e.g. stepped down to 24V or whatever) through the conduit to the hanging lamp. The 24V cable would then be connected to the control box(es)
Within the hanging lamp I would like to control the 2 up facing strips separately from 4 down facing strips.
Could I wire the two control boxes to the single 24V cable which is coming from the transformer (located o other side of room).
Would there be any strange / excessive load on the transformer by wiring to 2 control boxes? The length of combined strips are well within range of a single strip…
Of course, this requires cracking open the control box(es) to wire in the 24V cable and finding a suitable cable to run through the conduit to transformer. But that’s all doable…
Thanks in advance
