What AA CHarge for miles ?
Just checked.. 03

I posted about it on the sukkah thread (see below).

If you want to do a bunch of 4' runs, you're probably going to have to link them, instead of having each section run back to the power supply. The company I bought from had very good customer service, you can probably call and ask for advice on how to piece together what you're looking for.

ETA: And as far as wifi, I had an outdoor light wired into a switch just inside the house. So I just replaced that outdoor light with the new LEDs and swapped the switch for a Kasa wifi switch.

thank you

Gold or Platinum?
Gold. One thing at a time

Don't remember. I considered it free

In the past for sukkos, I've used shop lights with a total of 8 LED tubes, which was probably more light than needed, but now crazy bright. I would run tape/ropes along the full length (~16ft) of as few as 3 beams (or as many as the full 9 beams - depending on the lumens/ft or whatever - to get sufficient light for the space. The whole idea wouldn't be worthwhile unless I can find a way to do it for $200 or less (excluding install, which hopefully I can do myself).
where'd you end up with this? I just put up a new pergola, and grooved a 4' x 1/2" recess into the underside of the joists to put in LED strips 'invisibly". I'd like to set them up in a way that they can be controlled through my smartthings, but that can be as simple as putting them on a smart switch. Don't see any need for RGB in the sukkah. I have a joist every 24", but I plan on throwing in a couple of ceiling fans, so that will eliminate the ability to use 4 of them, to avoid flickering.

If anyone wants an update, managed to hit the target, assuming all pending charges from today and tomorrow hit.
was quite a marathon, but nice to be challenged, and will be hopefully very helpful for me

why would it be different? i have a combination of both. tribetechreview's eitza removes the need for black tape, and black tape removes some of the utility of the sensor, (the motion destection specifically).

AMEX is telling me I signed up for the 75k bonus, but not the 10x on grocery and gas. I signed up through @Dan 's link, and I'm sure it was there. they said they'll open an investigation, any other recourse?

Ecobee is shabbos friendly, @TribeTechReview can help, there's a thread somewhere.
In my opinion, they're better than nest anyway

Extreme long shot: anyone going to be at LAX tomorrow (11/24) to make mincha minyan 1:30-2:30pm?
LINK has a 12:35 minyan and at that time of day you're not too far from the airport (depending which way you're going)
