  • LED Tape - Under Cabinet Lighting - No soldering!

    The back cover pops off and there are 2 adjustment screws. 1 for sensitivity and the other is for duration. Mine is set at about 80% for sens and ~40% for duration. The duration on my unit ranges from 3 seconds to 10 minutes. Mine is dialed in at about 3 mins.

    Good idea. And here we were trying to reinvent the light bulb.

    Clarification: The motion detector would replace the switch. My system is always on so anytime you walk into the kitchen the lights come on without having to use a switch. Also, here is the ebay link from my pic above. "LED DC5-24V 5A Strip Automatic MINI PIR Infrared Motion Sensor Detector Switch" http://www.ebay.com/itm/LED-DC5-24V-5A-Strip-Automatic-MINI-PIR-Infrared-Motion-Sensor-Detector-Switch-/281735553264?hash=item4198bf60f0:g:vQwAAOSwPcVViNYJ

    I did this a couple months ago. I mounted the LEDs to some small pieces of wood with hot glue and then used a finish nailer to mount them under the cabinets. This made mounting much easier.Also a really easy enhancement is to add a motion detector like this - http://i.imgur.com/Xb8lNNU.png
