Thank you for the information! Also, good to know about Cybil. Actually I also have cats in our house. Hope Cybil was not in playful mood while you were fixing those panels & wires...otherwise it would have added more challenges (but more fun) to your work. :)

@Sanjib.A Thanks for your comments.

>> What is the total power drawn by the entire system: lights & controls?

I have measured around 4.6A on the 5v DC and 140mA on the 240v AC with all led's on full white. The controller draws about 140mA dc when in standby.

>> And by the way...I think you forgot to introduce your "project manager" who appeared in your video for a short moment.

I think you might be referring to my cat "Cybil".

>> You made me tempted to do something similar for upcoming "Deepawali" (festival of lights) celebrated in India sometime in November.

I would love to here about any lighting projects you might get involved in for your festival. Neo-Pixels are relatively easy to works with and would make a good addition.

@Steve: I loved watching the video...great job!! You made me tempted to do something similar for upcoming "Deepawali" (festival of lights) celebrated in India sometime in November. What is the total power drawn by the entire system: lights & controls? And by the way...I think you forgot to introduce your "project manager" who appeared in your video for a short moment. :-) Would look forward your updates.
