    4 separate runs, each individual run is going to require a control box.
    James, take a look at my video posted above, you'll see the white control box I'm talking about.

    Yes it does have a WARM WHITE setting per my admiral's request.
    Yes I have them wired to a switch... I cut the cord off a DC adapter then hard wired to an existing switched DC circuit, plugged it into a remote IR control module, you're done.
    I have the very tiny remote IR sensor barely exposed, so it can be remote controlled, dimming feature is just simply awesome.
    connecting 2 strips is just plug & play.
    Great info, thanks Joon. To be clear, you only need one "kit" to get the remote and DC adapter, then just connect the additional $12 strings that you need?

    When connecting to the existing DC switch, you cut the cord on the "light" side of the adapter?

    From my existing switch, I need to control 4 separate runs of 1-2 strings each (two different up-facing runs, one on each side of the boat, and two different under-cabinet runs, one on each side of the boat...all from the same existing switch). Could this be wired so that the one controller will control all 4 runs? Switch, IR remote, spliced to each of the 4 runs?

    Yes they are connected to a switch and are also controlled by the remote only to change colors. Yes line of sight. Mine aren’t warm white but I’m sure you can find in that color. And I do have 2 strips connected with no issues.

    Do you have them hard wired to a switch, or do you control them with the remote that comes with them? I assume the remote requires line of sight to work. Do the lights have a warm white setting? I can't tell from the product listing, seems that they are only RGB.

    Did you have any runs that required more than one 16.5' length? I have a few that I'd need to link two strips together and I know a lot of the less expensive lights can't do that.

    Thanks!

    I used those exact same lights on mine. Only difference was I stuck mine to the backside of the teak trim panel. It’s great running at night with the blue lights, passenger can see and your night vision doesn’t get completely ruined.

    loving the indirect subtle lighting .
    That's exactly what I'm looking for to install under-cabinet, and possibly replace the existing rope up-lighting. Where did you order from?

    Yes built in dimmer & soft warm white was important to us.

    The dimmer is built into the remote control. Color stays the same as they are dimmed.

    Joon,
    did you use a dimmer? Is the color of the led lights similar to the stock rope lights when they are dimmed?
