Wolf-Lighting LED String Module Kit Installation Instructions
A typical kit will include LEDs, a wall adapter, and a control. Also 8 self adhesive wire holder clips (see picture below), and a white spring connector (order extras if needed).
The example below shows a kit with an RF Remote Control. The remote control “receiver” is shown in the lower right hand corner, wired between the power supply and the LEDs.
Your LED modules may look slightly different (some have two separate wires between modules, and some are as above with the two wires together except where separated for making connections).
First, twist and snap the modules apart to separate them as shown here:
Next, hold the modules up to pre-plan exactly where you will stick each one, paying attention to places you’ll need them to jump over obstacles or transition under a microwave, etc. Pretend you’re sticking them in place, one at a time, moving from one module to the next, so you can be sure they will all land in a good spot once you start actually sticking them up. You can also tape some modules up temporarily with scotch tape etc to see how they will look before you permanently stick them up.
Also think about where you’ll plug the power in and how the wiring will route to the LED string. Here are some example pictures. Note also how the self adhesive wire clips are used to secure extra wire up under the cabinet.
Notice how you can let wires jump over cabinet boundaries, or you can make wires go “through” boundaries using a drill and connectors, like in the picture below. This requires drilling small holes, cutting and feeding wires through, then stripping some insulation and reconnecting using the white “spring” connectors (plan to order extra if needed):
As an alternative to drilling you could also saw a “slot” in each boundary (using a reciprocating saw or hand saw) where the LED string crosses it, and then tuck the wire(s) up in the slot. The slot will not be noticeable and need not be deep.
Once you have planned where to place the modules and where you’ll plug in the power, just peel off the 3M self adhesive backing and stick each module in place. Don’t forget the alcohol wipe before sticking them up.
Then plug the power supply into an outlet, and turn on the LEDs.
Note that if you have connected a motion sensor, those have to “warm up” for a couple minutes and will stay on during this time.
If you ordered a mini-dimmer, it wires in where the RF Remote receiver does (and looks almost exactly light it, except it has buttons that the receiver doesn’t have).
Here is the connection order for using a motion sensor in conjunction with a mini-dimmer: Power Supply>>>Motion Detector>>>Mini-Dimmer>>>LED modules. The motion detector will turn the LEDs on/off automatically and the mini-dimmer will set the brightness level at which they come on. If there is no mini-dimmer, the LEDs will simply come on at full brightness.
