Anyone got any ideas to put led strips on top of the cabinets even though they’re in sections? Like is there a light strip out there that works separated or on the same network? If so would I be able to control them both at the same time?
I think everyone is thinking way too complex. No need to bring in any more complexity than a single smart switch/dimmer into this. You don’t need full RGB to turn your kitchen into a strip club, right?
First, get a high voltage LED strip (i.e. rectified 120v) you can cut it and extend it with lamp cord (or any other appropriately-rated cord; do you have romex hanging around?) around the empty sections.
The crown moulding you have there is a perfect conduit for it.
Then just run the end of it to a smart dimmer. Then anyone can control it with normal hardware controls, and there’s zero software/cloud reliance to simply turn on your lights.
There is power in the cabinet hiding your range hood duct, so that might be a good place to start.
Or if you really don’t want to run any wires or pull the moulding, a couple of lutron lamp dimmers on dimmable 120v LED strips for either side can be sync’d with the same pico remote which can also be wall mounted to look like a real switch, so they’ll do the same thing all the time. The pico->lamp dimmer connection is local RF, so again you have zero software/cloud reliance.
