Our standard rope accent light (white incandescent) has burned out. It is 12V wired to a switch in our header. I would really like to put something up there with some character and I found several programmable LED strip lights.
I was looking at the RGBIC series from GoVee
. What makes these attractive is that each segment can be individually colored so we can set up with Red/White/Blue or Red/Green, etc depending on the time of year.
As they are powered by 120V which is adapted down to 12V I was thinking I could simply wire the controller to my 12V system and skip their adapter.
There was a comment on Amazon that said someone tried it but failed. I cannot understand why that would be the case. Isn't 12V always 12V? I do know that LEDs are required to be wired exactly and you cannot reverse polarity.
Is there any experience here?
