  • Start with a cool day.
  • Adjust your lighting in your room. This may mean working this out at dusk, or it may mean blocking out the light from the windows and using a color changing LED bulb and an appropriate light diffuser. You want your room to be dim with an orange or yellow tint to it.
  • Surround sound audio of ambiance noise, such as this one.
  • Cold (not heated) humidifier. Pump cold humidity into the room.
  • Ozone generator or, in a pinch, an ionizer. That heady, sort of metallic smell of ozone during a rainstorm is unmistakable.
  • A small, quiet, oscillating fan. Allow it to blow on you and on your curtains for that special effect.
  • If you've got a willing partner, explain all this to him/her, then take a nap. Have him/her set all of this up while you're asleep, then have him wake you up while all of this is going on. If you don't focus on the ambiance too much you may be able to ride the deception and actually believe it's raining.

Here are some of the LED cover stickers they make for reducing the brightness of these lights.

u/MicahBlue · 41 pointsr/Nest

We can use these as a workaround until Nest gets it’s act together. I bought these to cover the LED lights on my car’s dashcam for a more stealth look. They work well without ruining the aesthetic of your machine/device.

u/darthjuggernaut · 35 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I have it linked in the PCPP build:

u/EdinburghPerson · 25 pointsr/news

I think one big problem is Amazon's review page layout.
The review should say who it was purchased from and also the multi-product pages don't split the reviews into products, so you have no idea which review is for which item or who sold it!

This is a poor example, as you'll know which bulbs you get, but it demonstrates the point:

The reviews could be for any of those items, from any seller.

u/shadowfusion · 25 pointsr/pics

I suggest these bad boys! Amazon linky You can get full blackout or ones that block 50-80% of the light if you still want to see the indicator light. I drop them on everything and it has been quite nice :)

Navy & white striped changing pad cover from Target, purchased to match the nautical/adventurer themed bedroom my older son has. The two will eventually share a room.

This tub of Aquaphor solved all diaper irritation issues with my first baby, so I bought a fresh tub for #2! Not in picture but it’s inside the storage box!

Graco Travel Pack n Play with Stages is just the right size for a bassinet and is great for travel

Color changing lightbulb with remote dims to a low level with lots of color choices nice for middle of night feedings and diaper changes

I use these on several devices. Work great.

u/Heliumx · 14 pointsr/homeautomation

While I'm happy for you, I'm surprised it was that pricey.

Smartthings Hub, $50

$10 Zigbee bulb

~$8 Xiaomi door sensor

Not trying to be mean but Homeautomation doesn't have to be an expensive endeavor. I'll admit, if you went with a smart switch route then it'd be $30 instead of a $10 bulb.

u/shlokrshah · 12 pointsr/buildapcsales

Edit: The price just changed on these literally minutes after I posted! They're $94.98 now haha.

Not sure if this belongs here but I figure enough of you would be interested in Smart Home stuff. Seems to be an all-time-low price according to CCC.

Seems to be a pretty good deal since the non-ambiance A19 starter kit & two bulbs would run you around $75 and these are significantly better if you prefer a white-white light over warmer whites.

The Color & Ambiance version of this is also on sale for $151 for anyone who needs RGB.

u/splitplug · 11 pointsr/Hue

I would look into LIFX bulbs for this.

u/ek778 · 10 pointsr/xboxone

I know you said you don't want to tape dark paper over the light, but this might be a slightly more elegant solution, in the absence of actually controlling the LED:

I use these for a variety of electronics, including power buttons that light up, and they work extremely well. They claim to peel off cleanly too - thought I haven't tried it.

If you don't want total light blockage, the company also makes a version that allows for some light transmission:

edit: spacing

u/ScarceXrul · 10 pointsr/buildapc

agreed, just bought DeepCool brand LED's for my pc just last week. only $20 and took 3 minutes to setup.

Amazon link


What worked really well for me is the LED strips are magnetic so no paste or tape required. Hooked up to a 4-pin Molex and that was it.

u/dahvzombie · 9 pointsr/Frugal


For what it does, this product is immensely overpriced. The words "unique", "gifts", and "design" in their blurb by the site name should give that away immediately. There are numerous alternatives that will do the same thing for cheaper. Here's one I found with a quick search.

u/Slayner · 9 pointsr/miamidolphins

This computer is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and I actually didn't plan on doing LED lights with this computer. I always thought they were gimmicky (which they kinda are, but dammit I'm bought in)

Anyway, if you have a computer you want lit up, with good software to control different modes, and colors, to shockingly precise detail then check out the nzxt hue+ thing is pretty cool.

When I built this computer I had bought the nzxt aer fans, not knowing that you needed the hue + to use them. So I purchased the hue+ afterwards, and it came with these LED strips, which I used to have the aqua color in the computer. The fans are the orange color.

Because this computer is using 4 LED strips and 8 fans it actually required 2 Hue + units, but as I said as gimmicky as it is, I became a little kid when I saw my computer light up, and I was sold. I bought another and immediately thought it'd be sweet to get some aqua and orange by my computer.

Fins up.

Edit: I made a gif showing one of my favorite modes called covering marquee for the lights. I'm lazy and the gif is shitty but whatever

You can set the lights to flash according to audio and even set it to change colors for the cpu and gpu Temps though. It's really cool.

u/Get_Back_To_Work_Now · 9 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/smoshr · 9 pointsr/nvidia

This should be exactly what you're looking for.

The bottom is magnetized as well, so it will stick to the case surface.

u/skoink · 8 pointsr/AskElectronics

It should be safe to remove, assuming you can do it without damaging anything nearby.

With that said, tape or paint is a better option IMO. If you're precise about it, you should be able to cover the LED without also covering the IR receiver. There's even special-purpose tape available out there like this:

u/ravekitt · 8 pointsr/succulents

I found that my echeverias do best outside in full-sun. When they were inside, even though they were in a large south-facing window they still weren't reaching their full potential without a grow light.

I used these bulbs at the end of winter and in early spring last year and got really good results. I also used it throughout the spring and summer to acclimate newly shipped plants before putting them outside. This is what one of my other echeverias looked like after 3 weeks under this light in conjunction with a large south-facing window. I had them positioned 2-3'' above my plants and ran them 12 hours a day.

u/WorkAccountBro · 8 pointsr/succulents

Just regular clamp lights w/ day light bulbs attached. I've seen these bulbs mentioned so many times in this subreddit, so I decided to buy them. I can verify that they work. My plants stopped etiolating and gained some color.

u/sholder89 · 7 pointsr/Hue

I wouldn't use Hue for this, there's a ton of much cheaper alternative bulbs that you can change the colors. You need a bridge in order to change the color of Hue bulbs otherwise they just act as regular bulbs.

I can't vouch for the quality of this one in particular but I've seen bulbs like these in use before

Here, this is your "Shut up and take my money" of the day. LightDims Black Out Edition

u/trashlikeyourmom · 7 pointsr/BlackPeopleTwitter

Here's a link to the ones I got. I got the ones that dim, not the ones that completely block out.

u/Niyok · 7 pointsr/ProtectAndServe

If you want to dim the brightness, they make light blocking stickers.

u/komandokost · 7 pointsr/amazonecho

Just got this one and it works on it's own for cheap.

u/TheHangoverCure · 6 pointsr/LSD

I like to have these pointed at artwork as it makes the colors change quite dramatically.

There's also just the standard bulb style to change the overall color of the room.

I use both of those and just a mess of christmas lights. It's a good base to start with, then you can jump into the more fun stuff. I really want to get a mini light rig like they have for concerts. It would be fun to be "the light guy" at home.

u/Bostonlbi · 6 pointsr/HomeKit

I've got a pretty fun set up in my Sunroom

Lights: some basic string lights, and a couple Ikea MAGNARP lamps plugged into some iHome Smart Plugs, along with Hue Full color bulbs in the ceiling with a Hue Dimmer Switch

The dimmer switch can not control anything but Phillips Hue bulbs but I wanted to use it to set a scene that turned on the string lights and lamps so I set the second press of the dimmer switch to turn the hue lights to a 1% brightness.
From within the Elgato Eve App I set an automation triggered by the Hue lights being set to 1% that turns the lamps and string lights on.


It can get pretty hot in the sunroom in the summer with a lot of activity from booth the people and the cat in the house. So I set up a system with Eve Room Sensor, Eve Door Sensor (used on windows) and iHome Smart Plugs to automate 2 fans set up in windows on opposite sides of the room. The Room sensor tracks the air quality and if it is low the fans will kick on, as long as the windows are open, (tracked by door sensor)
when the quality is good again, the fans turn off automatically, and they don't turn on while the string lights are on, since they are kinda loud.

Unfortunately our AC unit has a NEMA 6-15P plug so its not compatible with HomeKit.

u/FoferJ · 6 pointsr/Hue

That's pretty awesome and certainly very powerful/customizable. Nice job!

> I just couldn't justify dropping $60 for a circle with 3 buttons on it, and no dimmers.

I just wanted to clarify, the Hue Tap switch can, in fact, have one of the its buttons assigned to a dimmer mode, via Hue Labs. It cycles through three levels of (adjustable) brightness. There are a handful of Android and iOS apps too, that can make the same assignment.

Also, the Hue Dimmer switch is just $25. Or $35 bundled with a white bulb.

Lastly, many don't realize this but the old Philips "LivingColors" remotes work perfectly fine (now) with Hue bulbs and hub.

Image of a compatible model here:

I've just set up my second one, and have them both working in different rooms of my house. And for less than $15 on Amazon or eBay, they're the cheapest (and actually most versatile) physical, light switches for a Hue system. You can even select the desired color right from the remote. I love them! (Discussion here.)

Thanks for sharing your ideas and work here, and enjoy!

u/Toastyparty · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace

this will do it...

and god fucking dammit really? I received it yesterday and it went on sale today. FAK!!!! well good for anyone here looking for one.

u/C_V_Butcher · 6 pointsr/razer

No it's not. The base Hue+ is $59.99 and comes with 4 strips. The Extension kit is $20.99 for 2 more strips. That's vs The Chroma Kit at $79.99 that comes with 2 strips and then 2 extra strips are $29.99. So that's $59.99 for a Hue+ with 4 strips or $109.98 for a Chroma+Extension to get 4 strips.

Now the upswing is Synapse is a lot more reliable than the CAM software that runs Hue+, which is a dumpster fire.

u/ValElTech · 6 pointsr/buildapc

Can you get a GPU bracket? Avoid the one you screw at the back of the case but more like that one:

If its weight related it will help

u/howImetyoursquirrel · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Like everyone else said, don't store stuff in your case. If you really want to prop the GPU up to prevent sag then buy a GPU holder on Amazon, I even found you the link to one MSI makes one as well

u/HingleMcCringle_ · 6 pointsr/pcmods

LOVE it. looks awesome and I think the effort really paid off.

my only question is, where did you buy the mount for the GPU? Not the PCI Extension cable, the part where it mounts the case.

edit: found it. but where did you buy it?

edit 2: oh, fuck me, it's on Amazon, now. a few months ago, you'd be luck if you got the notification from coolermaster before they sold out. I though I'd come back and leave the link incase someone else wanted it

u/Yvese · 5 pointsr/nvidia

If your card is still working then I don't see a need to replace it.

Find something to hold it up. You could use lego, figures, whatever. People have gotten creative.

For me I bought this. Works well.

u/JoeyDJQ · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

That's what I use. Very easy to adjust and install.

I didn't like the brackets I tried.

u/Silidistani · 5 pointsr/RoomPorn

The windows have a IR reduction film on them which reduces 97% of the infrared light coming through... so the evening sun setting over the water doesn't bake the room.

They are also double-paned, and the inner pane is an ElectroChromic layer, which can provide rapid visible-light tint at the push of a button - perfect for when its's time for sleep or the sun is just too bright the next morning after a night at the bars.

But why use buttons? An Amazon Echo Dot built into a nook in the wall can communicate with a SmartThings hub in the small hand-carved-wood electronics cabinet (out of frame here) and not only activate the EC windows but also the motorized track on the wooden shutters outside - for those times when you do want total privacy. A simple voice command makes it happen. It even anticipates your needs with daily schedule settings so the soft morning light can wake you up by retracting the shutters and setting the EC glass to transparent each morning at dawn. A Nest thermostat keeps everything balmy or cozy depending on the time of day, or day of the week.

While you're in the bath, of course, the Dot will play your current Audible book from your Kindle collection over the built-in-ceiling speakers using its Bluetooth radio, or switch to that classical Pandora channel you've been cultivating for years when you're tired of the book and just want to rest.

Finally, the two small lights in the alcoves in the rear wall are actually multi-colored and dimmable wifi-connected LEDs, so they can flash various colors when different events happen, such as the local fruit-&-vegetable vendor bringing your semi-weekly order to your gate downstairs or getting a phone call from a particular person in your favorites list.

You live a comfortable life.

u/Ikeelu · 5 pointsr/buildapc

So I just literally got back from purchasing that case, but in Black/Red. I'm convinced to do lighting as well. Question. This is the one your using right? Does it come with all the lights you used, or did you need the extension kit too? Also can you cake pix of the install location please.

u/hbray1228 · 5 pointsr/succulents

They’re 100 watt equivalent LEDs, 6500k color temp. So far my babies are loving them.

u/improcrastinating · 5 pointsr/proplifting

It is a 100 Watt Equivalent A19 LED bulb. Link

u/highbrowloubrew · 4 pointsr/boardgames

What a coincidence, that's my dream game room, too!

Joking aside, that looks great. If you're looking for some lighting ideas I'd suggest those Phillips Hue bulbs that can change color and can be controlled from an app.

Otherwise if you're looking for something a little more cost-efficient I really enjoy these color changing bulbs with remotes. I use these for secondary mood lighting (they aren't strong enough on their own) and the remotes that come with will work on all the bulbs and not just one. My buddies have their house filled with them and velcro'd a remote near each light switch.

u/barc0001 · 4 pointsr/videos

This is overpriced badly, and there are products on the market today that have very similar function for much less. Example. $12 and though you can't control it via wifi, you can control it with a remote control that comes with it for the $12. If you bought a case of them, one remote will control all of them. Also available for $7 from Amazon right now

These guys aren't even first to the "control your LED bulb from your smartphone space". Here's a shipping (admittedly white color only) bulb for $30. $70 is just way too high a price point for what you're getting.

u/imaBEES · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Is this it?

u/BROMAR06 · 4 pointsr/battlestations

^^That is one 16 foot reel of the lights, it comes with a 12V Power Adapter

^^The Music IR controller... This will say in the reviews that it doesn't come with a power supply, well, you can use the power supply that comes with the reel in the link above and it works, and you can hook up to three strands into the controller. I only have one hooked up, and it's really self explanatory. Plug the 12V into the wall, plug in the strand of lights into the four pin connector on the IR controller with the arrows lined up (you'll see this on the connector) and then plug the 12V into the plug on the IR controller. There are two music modes, and there are also other fade modes, and you can choose solid colors. The remote for the IR controller has less options, but it's audio it's worth it I'd say.

I suggest some LightDims to solve the issue. Apparently they are stickers that you can use to dim bright leds.

Well it definitely helps with GPU sag, if that's what you're referring to. But some vertical GPU mount kits can still sag, just in a different way. I'm fairly certain this one will perform adequately though without sagging. Cooler Master also sells this if you're just trying to cure sag issues:

Sengled Element Classic Dimmable A19 Smart Bulb, Compatible with SmartThings Hub, Wink Hub and Echo Plus, Requires Hub for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, 3 Year Warranty

u/caffiend98 · 3 pointsr/getdisciplined

I use Alarm Clock Xtreme (on Android) for a couple of features that really help me with this:

  • Complex snooze / alarm dismissal -- You customize what it takes to do each task. I set mine to require me to shake the phone for 2 seconds to snooze it (moving this much helps wake me up), and to require me to do math problems (the difficulty level is configurable) to dismiss the alarm.
  • Custom and decreasing snooze duration -- I find the snooze irresistible, so this feature lets me limit the damage. I set the first snooze to last 5 minutes, then each subsequent snooze to be 1 minute shorter (down to a minimum of 1 minute per snooze). An alarm every 60 seconds gets annoying enough to get me out of bed.
  • Increasing alarm volume -- I hate an alarm that scares me awake, so mine increases to max volume over time.

    I've also set up a Sengled Elements smart light bulb to incrementally increase brightness over a few minutes at the same time. If you don't have a smart home hub, there are bulbs that don't require a hub, like this one.

    Hope this helps!

Eccentriczebpajamas, congrats!

Fellow hEDS, got married last July (pre-diagnosis), and I think I’ve got some ideas for you:

For the shoes, not sure where to look - I have really HUGE feel (size 12-13 women’s), so I struggled too, but ended up finding a cheap pair that looked great and kinda worked for me. They were tolerable but not comfortable, and I regret not focusing more time on finding a better pair.

For the registry, I’ve had really good luck with the OXO Good Grips series of stuff (their handles are chunky enough that I don’t tend to sublux my fingers, even gripping hard)

The can opener I use is a blue version of this one: (OXO Good Grips Can Opener

They also have a kitchen starter set that might be good to work with:(OXO Good Grips 15-Piece Everyday Kitchen Tool Set

When I can cook, I use these gloves instead of potholders - they’re great for the heat, don’t require as much hand strength/fine motor skills as potholders would, and also do a great job at gripping/opening stuck can lids: (Silicone Oven Gloves Extra Thick Heat Resistant Oven Mitts from Aocome, for Cooking Grilling BBQ and Baking, Quilted Cotton Lining, Waterproof Non-Slip Grip Food Grade Safe 1 Pair

For sitting, this chair is my favorite. Looks goofy, but hurts WAY less than anything else I’ve tried:
(Gaiam Balance Ball Chair - Classic Yoga Ball Chair with 52cm Stability Ball, Pump & Exercise Guide for Home or Office, Purple

A WiFi blood pressure monitor like the one from Nokia (I have the older Withings version) can be great for helping keep track of your overall health (along with things like FitBits, WiFi thermometers, etc., if you’re into that: (Nokia BPM+ – Compact Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor

Finally, if you have room, a shower stool can be super helpful if you spend too many spoons in one place and struggle to stand up in the shower (there are lots of types, including pretty wooden ones, but this type is really easy to assemble): (Medokare Shower Stool with Padded Seat - Shower Seats for Seniors with Tote Bag, Shower Bench Bath Chair, Handicap Shower Seat for Adults, Shower Stools and Benches

Oh! And bonus last-minute add: overhead lights that you can turn off from your phone, so you can go to bed and THEN turn off the lights, instead of trying to fumble your way across your room in the dark (they can also turn your room into a bright rainbow disco, if you’re into that): (Philips Hue 464479 60W Equivalent White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit, 3rd Generation, Works with Amazon Alexa

Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 60W Equivalent LED Smart Bulb Starter Kit

Here’s the color kit I have. If you look at the product info and comparison table you’ll see the variations. If you see the color kit for less than $180-199 then most likely it’s a seller offloading older stock. They’re up to gen four on the bulbs now and the color reproduction gets better and better so I recommend getting the new stock.

u/tldnradhd · 3 pointsr/AskBattlestations

These feel sort of low-budget, but are very flexible in terms of application. Installation is part of the fun here. Start with a Hitlights 300 RGB - $30 (this recently dropped in price from $40) or a 150 kit Get as many of these are you think he'll want, depending on the space available. A 16-foot run of 300 will light up a small room. The 150s are more for accent lighting.

For each additional run, he'll want an amplifier if he needs them all controlled by one controller. You also need a power adapter for each amplifier, but this is included in each of the $25-30 kits. You can cut and splice them, but it's much easier and neater if you have the pre-made connectors - short strip-to-strip short strip-to-terminator or long terminator-to-terminator. I did my first round of installations without the connectors and it was pretty messy, so I strongly recommend getting them to ease things along.

Last, does he listen to pounding electronic music? If yes, a music controller.

You might try those LED-dimming stickers out:

I use them on all my electronics that have annoying blue LEDs on them. Sometimes need to use a couple of them stacked to dim down the especially-annoying ones. If you dim down the blue light on that mirror, it may look less like the po po at least.

u/TheDonJ77 · 3 pointsr/Nest

All these dark comments about Nest/Google are crazy!! I get the frustration of some but too many the subtle change will be meaningless. I for one have made a small $5.00 purchase on Amazon which rectifies this minor issue completely.

u/heywhatsupthisisdan · 3 pointsr/onewheel
u/splice42 · 3 pointsr/fortinet

You're probably looking for something like this, which has been a lifesaver for me. There's also variations that don't block all the light but dims it significantly.

u/SomeNoob1306 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I use these for stuff like that. Looks a lot cleaner than electrical tape.

u/onepotatotwotomato · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I've looked for something similar...Nothing seems to exist on this front as yet (Kickstarter here I come!) but you can duplicate the effect with those unfortunately expensive Philips controllable color bulbs and setting your 'dim' as a preset.

Disappointed that they’re meaningfully changing the product experience after purchase. It’s one thing if they made it optional, but this seems quite heavy handed.

I just ordered my blocker stickers. Need to find white ones as well...:

u/Umlautica · 3 pointsr/audiophile

I use these on my amplifiers - LightDims. They're great.

u/dragonpc_ca · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I've used the HUE and the DeepCool RGB 350 (which both items you linked seem to be rebrands of) and actually prefer the DeepCool, even though it's cheaper.

The sticking is better (magnetic), the lights are brighter, and you get two short strips instead of one super long one making it easier to find places inside your case. Only downside is that you're stuck with the pre-set colors on the remote, but they have most bases covered with those.

u/k8ne · 3 pointsr/haworthia

I don't have super helpful advice as I don't have the space for a large collection. I use my lights year around, tho I truck my plants outside as much as possible during the summer.

I have these bulbs.

And I just pop one into a desk lamp, which is plugged into this automatic timer.

The timer does have a slight learning curve to it, but it's so nice to have something that does all the work of turning my light off and on.

The bulbs are great and cheap. I usually rotate my plants closer and further away every other day or so. I find if I leave them directly under it (about 5-6 inches away) for too many days, they will skip right thru pretty stress to ugly stress. In the dark depths of winter, I might pull out my red and blue light gooseneck as a supplement to make me feel better, but I really don't think I'll need it, and that usually has to be within 2-3 inches tops to be any good.

u/super_not_clever · 3 pointsr/SmartThings

Yes, SmartThings could certainly do this... personally, I have a timer set up for a heater in my bathroom. Once I turn on the heater, the timer turns it back off after 45 minutes.

However, I'm not sure you NEED SmartThings to accomplish this... I think you probably need to just purchase a smart plug or smart bulb that is compatible with Stringify. It looks like the TP-Link Smart Plug is compatible, or if you just want to buy a lamp, the TP-Link LB100 is listed on Stringify's website.

The nice thing about doing a lamp is that you get dimming, so you can have it slowly dim up in the morning when the alarm goes off, or dim it to a low level if you need to get up in the middle of the night.

Personally, I've never used stringify, but looking at some of their flow examples, I see no reason it can't do exactly what you're looking for with the purchase of compatible equipment!

u/fibularfracture · 2 pointsr/askscience

If it is anything like this, then it has multiple LEDs inside of it. Purple is just the red and blue LEDs both active simultaneously. To fade to red, they blue LED slowly dims until turning off, effectively fading to red

u/rdwtoker · 2 pointsr/CarAV

You could rig up one of these with some LEDs.

u/Heffeweizen · 2 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Good question! You can solder them if you want but each strip contains 4 tiny wires which are a pain to solder. And if you accidentally let solder touch 2 wires then the color doesn't get processed correctly. So they make female to female straight connectors and angled connectors. They also make extension cords if you want to get behind a wall. If you want to save money just buy bulk wire. But if you connect more than 16ft of lights in a single circuit, then you needed an amplifier which needs to be plugged into an extra power supply otherwise the lights near the ends of the circuit will be dimmer and also off color. Color correctness comes from adequate power. Finally you can optionally buy a music sensor so all of your lights blink to the music!

u/trolltrap420 · 2 pointsr/EDM

This is the type I have. Its easy to set up and works great, you can change how sensitive it is to the music.

u/ranterbach · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

Yep. If the computer is on, those LEDs are on, and they're bright as shit. I could wire in a switch I suppose, or just cut power to the LEDs.

You nailed it, my next build will have LED strips with a discrete controller so I can turn them off without powering off the PC. I still like the flashy stuff, and I'd love to have lighting that reacts to my music (both in the case and behind the monitor), I just don't want it on all the time. Something like this would be perfect:

Our baby isn't here yet, but we are experimenting with colored LED bulbs that are operated by remote in our regular bedside lamps. They are dimmable and can be changed to lots of colors.

There are several companies (Phillips,Belkin, etc.) that sell light bulbs or light switches that can be controlled via iPhone/Android apps.


On the app side, I recommend taking the time to try out Google Music or another music app in favor of the stock Touchwiz app. Also, remember that smaller Widget sizes are available and to try live wallpapers if thats your thing (they do eat battery life though).

The sticker on the package said dim-ems but the amazon page lists them as lightDims. These ones block 80% and do a great job of dimming LED's so you can still see them but they dont light up the entire room. A couple LED's I had to put two layers on them and now our room is PITCH black during the day.

These overpriced translucent stickers are an easy fix for all kinds of annoying domestic LEDs. It's a silly product, but at least they'll send you a "free" sample for $1, which works out to a lifetime supply in my experience. Amazon link.

u/mrwebguy · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

OP Delivers and sorry for the delay. Thanks to /u/maxwellsearcy for reminding me!

  • Dresden electronic ballast (Zigbee)
  • 50/50 4 Conductor Light Strip Connectors
  • Phillips Hue Dimmer Switch
  • Supernight 50/50 24V lights

    Now, cut the plugs off one side of the lights and off the power supply. Match the wires up on the Dresden ballast with RGB+ on the LEDs. Carefully strip away the outer shielding on the power supply cord and then strip the tiny wires on the inside of the power supply wire. Put those into the power screw points on the Dresden. Plug it in and test. It should come on a solid color.

    Now that you have it working, go into your Hue app and scan for new lights. You will see 2 lights pop up for every Dresden ballast you configure. Once it's done scanning, click them in the app and make sure they flash. One of them will NOT flash and you can safely delete that one.

    That's it!
u/gary_keith · 2 pointsr/Hue

Hue makes dimmer switches.

u/tehdrizzle · 2 pointsr/Hue

Not that I'm aware of. Your best bet would be to get a light switch plate that has an additional switch slot or something like this and a lightswitch cover. Put the double plate over the single switch, stick the switch cover over the switch in the ON position, and use the hue dimmer's sticky mount on the blank switch area.

It's a couple extra bucks, but won't leave any marks when all taken down.

Crude Mockup

u/doublekid · 2 pointsr/Hue

The dimmer switches are completely remote; have a magnet to attach them to a wall.

Tapping the on button cycles through five scenes that you can customize, and the dimmer switches are obviously hardware buttons. Highly recommended!

u/chaosdude78 · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

For my apartment, I you utilize two solutions to almost solve this problem. Neither one is perfect but for controlling rooms with only hue bulbs I use the hue dimmer switch. Those work nicely because the plate they come with is about the right size to replace a regular switch, but they only control Hue bulbs. For other rooms that have other lighting solutions, I have attached some Aeon Minimotes to the wall. In those rooms, I don't have light switches that need to be in any position, but you could always rewire them to bypass the switches and build some custom mounting solutions for the,

u/MorningZ · 2 pointsr/Hue

The dimmer switch is the best thing ever for the Hue:

u/TheSecondTier · 2 pointsr/buildapc

The most popular ones I've seen are the following:

NZXT Hue+: expensive, fancy, super customizable

Cablemod Widebeam: Tons of different options based on what you want, they have different colors, lengths, and mounting types as well. The magnetic RGB one is pretty close to the Hue+ while the basic strips are much cheaper but less customizable.

Bitfenix Alchemy 2.0: Very similar to the Cablemod ones, they come in various lengths and colors. No RGB options but can be fairly inexpensive.

Some good vidyas about them here and here. Hope this helped some.

u/Soprohero · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Thanks! I love the case. Awesome design and form factor. Made building in it as a first time builder a heck of a lot easier to because I can just be lazy and just stuff all the cables in the back where no one will see.

Edit: Oh and I got the light strips from here

u/stavn · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

is there anything comparable to the NZXT HUE+ but maybe a little less expensive? something that can do different colors and be programmed from the computer like the hue +

u/quaser99 · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

They have adhesive and you can put it on anything. It comes with a remote to change colors or flash different ones, or anything you could really want. I was talking about this one specifically but one of the most popoular ones is the NZXT Hue+

u/Diabeticninja1 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I'm tellin' you guys, invest in a nice NZXT Hue+, it'll change your life. Make it easier too!

u/Max_01 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

NZXT Hue+ will set you back around £50 and some cheap RGB strip will set you back around £11. I personally use the cheap kit I linked above and it works fine but it's very basic - best to use if you just want one static colour - the effets it comes with are pretty basic and not very well done imo...

u/spicedpumpkins · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I bought

This mobo


This case

Ram and Air Cooler and This Lighting kit and These fans x3 for back and two on top

paired with MSI Gaming X 480 8GB gpu so that everything matches.

Yes overkill for this cpu but fuck it, I love the color scheme. I'll just benchmark the system and throw in a Kaby i5 7600K for the real CPU intended for this build right after and use the G4560 for an ultra cheap build I will gift to my son's friend so they can play some games together.

u/Neox420 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

i kinda like the look of it, but do you really need that rgb? Or do you need that wi-fi adapter? The only reason why i would buy it is because of the overclocking features. But thats your choice. Oh, and if you want rgb i would recommend best kit i've seen.

u/tallmanchub · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Yeah... don't get that other build. Last gen CPU that needs to be OC'd to realise its potential, a cooler that isnt compatible with your case, a turd tier PSU and no white in sight.

So that case you have isn't really the best, and if money is no object, there are far better available that might also look better and will be a lot more functional, as well as having more room for RGB fans. Nevertheless you said she's bought it so the build below assumes that you do want to use that case. It also assumes you are using the fans it comes with - so I'm not really sure where you want to add the extra corsair RGB fans. That case only has 3 fan slots - 2 front and 1 rear, and 1 front and the rear are already occupied with the fans it comes with.

If you do decide not to use that case let me know and I'll change the build accordingly. Here are some examples of better cases:

Also you could look at smaller cases if thats something you think she'd like, here are some good ones:

All of these are a similar kind of aesthetic but others are available, have a look here where I've set the filter for case colours of white/silver/purple.,36,38,62,64,66,82,83,87,89

u/Du6e · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

If you want to go with the C70, you'll only have to swap out the X61 Kraken to a 240mm AIO. Something like this.

As for LED's, the NZXT Hue+ is probably the best kit you can get if you want a lot of control.

u/fulton1 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Dont be silly you arent bothering me, i like to help out where i can, the hue+ is actually the name of the controller box that the leds plug into, in the kit you get 4 led strips, the hue+ controller and all the cables/ extensions (it uses sata or molex, (i can't remember to be honest) to power it and connects to the motherboard via the usb 2.0 header

I will link the kit below, hope the information above helped!

You mentioned future proofing and the Ti does that for sure, it's up to you but I'd find a way. Also I'd recommend getting the coolest all black case you can afford and buying some green lighting for it separately. Bitfenix has some LED strips in different colors you can get on Amazon pretty cheap. Or you can buy the Hue+ and change the color to literally what ever you want depending on your mood at that time. More expensive though for sure. If you ever get tired of green there's no going back when you buy a case that accents it for you lol.

I have not used these bulbs but have had good experiences with TP-Link smart plugs and switches. I see 14% of 636 Amazon reviews are 1 or 2 stars, which is typical of many similar smart devices. WiFi (and other RF connection types) can be problematic and subject to interference. Here is a quote from the manufacturer in response to a reviewer whose bulbs frequently lost connection:

>Due to the nature of Wi-Fi, there are several potential sources of interference that may cause the issue you've described. For example, if your smart bulb is installed in a metal dome/casing, this can potentially weaken the Wi-Fi signal. Please make sure the Wi-Fi signal is sufficiently strong for your smart bulb.

they're $8/bulb right now on amazon but i often see 3 packs for like $20 on sale. I bought 8 of them about 2 months ago and so far no problem. They don't work as a zigbee repeater just FYI.

u/k4in_5037 · 2 pointsr/SteamController

In my room I have this setup; my PC is connected to an A/V Receiver that goes to TV out, a usb infrared mce sensor (not this one), a logitech harmony 650 universal remote and a kit of philliphs hue lights for software I use eventghost and ScreenBloom to give a touch of ambiance to the room, with all things set up I just press one button on the harmony remote and it turns on the A/V receiver, tv, run the ScreenBloom app to fade the lights and opens steam in big picture, I also have some shortcuts for the SC Chord button to control the lights while gaming.

although I don't know if it would work if you stream your PC to TV with Steamlink or the like, since my setup is for a PC that is directly attached to and in proximity of your TV.

u/Trichostema · 2 pointsr/Hue

This starter kit seems the best way to go, unless you want to go with white.

Here, you get 2 bulbs and a hub.

Just the hub is about $48, so the bulbs are more like $25 each.

Or you could go with, three bulbs and a hub.

Or, check out your local Bed Bath and Beyond and see if they still have any on clearance.

Thank you for taking the time to respond and also for giving us such a great new idea. Heres an update. Watching porn together is NOT something that we will be doing in the near future. I can respect that. Now you bring up a great new opportunity. Im not a huge reader but she is. Maybe having her search out something she finds erotic and then having her read to me, might be an option. Thanks you very much for your help with this.
We also really enjoy the lighting in our bedroom. They are Phillip Hue colored bulbs and flameless candles

I'd advise not to do that as you'll choke your GPU airflow do not vertically mount your GPU unless you're liquid cooling it or have adequate airflow space with something like this

u/jeffro422 · 2 pointsr/pcmods

Something like this may also be helpful then. It hasn't been out long and hopefully they will be restocking it. You also have this one which is more specific to Cooler Master cases but you could mod it to fit differently if you cut a side panel. Brackets just might make things easier for you.

Generally it's indicated in the name, for example the wireless version of that motherboard is called "Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI)" Other motherboards will have "AC" in their name, lots of higher end boards also just come with it, but you will have to check the product pages on them.

> You mean I can't do mATX + vertical GPU + PCIE WiFi card, or can't do mATX + vertical GPU at all

If there's a built in mount to the case you can do it, but with risers like this one you can't do it with mATX or ATX.

I double checked compatibility and clearance, if you like the look of the Kraken you can get the x52 which is 240mm and top mount it. It will clear the memory with that motheboard. I don't particularly like the performance of top mounted 240mm AIOs as it's no better than the large air coolers I mentioned in my previous comment, but it's an option if you like the look.

I know it's a little late for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but just now, I managed to snag the 4-pack White and Color Ambiance Starter Kit on Amazon for $139. (Currently $10 cheaper than the 3-pack!)

Edit: Shipped and sold by Amazon themselves

u/idiopathic8417 · 2 pointsr/medicalschool

Hue color white. Each bulb should be about $40-50. I can attest they’re amazing. Google or YouTube hue sync.

u/rayfin · 2 pointsr/Android

You can get started with the Hue hub and 4 lights. Those are color. Or you can go the cheaper router and get started with white lights

I believe you just missed a nice memorial day sale. As I said, I try to only buy them when on sale as they're a bit expensive. Good luck!

4 Bulb color Starter Pack for $140 when you order with Alexa

u/dzhou10 · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

is this from amazon for $120 a better deal?

u/Viper999DC · 2 pointsr/Hue

Hue sells many different configurations of the starter kit, with different amounts and types of bulbs. The cheaper one likely has fewed bulbs, and probably only white bulbs. Older kits can also be cheaper. My opinion is that if you're going to get smart bulbs that don't do color, then you're better of with smart switches. The Hue "white" bulbs are a really ugly yellow that I can't stand. White Ambiance is a nice middle ground, at half the cost of the color bulbs, while giving you full control over the "warmth" spectrum. So you can change your lighting to match the time of day, for instance.

This is the cheapest kit I see on It's basically the cost of the bridge with 2 white bulbs. Then you have the non-refurb for slightly more. This one is still white bulbs, but now you have 4. This one is like the first kit, but with a dimmer switch. I recommend dimmer switches, as otherwise guests will use the wall switch, disabling your smart bulbs. Then you start getting into the white ambiance kits, this one with a dimmer and 2 bulbs. Finally the color bulb kits will be the most expensive.

So, what's right for you? Depends on what you want. Usually you want to buy the starter kit that has a "free bridge". Use the following price chart to determine the value of your kit:

  • White bulb: $15 ea.
  • White Ambiance bulb: $25 ea.
  • White & Color Abiance bulb: $50 ea.
  • Dimmer switch: $20 ea.
  • Motion Sensor: $40 ea.

    If the kit costs the value of it's contents or less, it's worthwhile. If it costs more than that, you're paying for the bridge. Usually the cheaper kits will have you paying more for the bridge. By the time you get into the 4-color-pack range they're giving you a credit.

    Now, all that said, if your concern is cheap DO NOT BUY INTO HUE! It's extremely expensive, probably the priciest smart bulb. Ikea Tradfri and LiFX both have cheaper options that are similar in quality. Or if you really want cheap, go with Sengled. Hue is the premium option.
u/kingofkindom · 2 pointsr/HomeKit

I entered to amazon thru US VPN and its shows same things.

How didn't you found?

  1. Hub + 4 bulbs for $85.
  2. Hub + 2 bulbs ($50) and 4 bulbs ($42) = Hub + 6 bulbs for $92
  3. Hub + 2 bulbs ($50) and Dimmer Switch + 1 bulb ($30) = Hub + 3 bulbs + Switch for $80 (this is what here costs $100)
u/upstreamriver · 1 pointr/nvidia

Doesn't look too bad, but if you're not feeling comfortable you can take a look at some of the GPU holders available.


edit: spelling, added alternative for those with 2.5" slot cards

u/Dr3amCast · 1 pointr/nvidia

I haven't had much experience with cards of this size. It's definitely the largest heatsink I've owned as well. I mean, it's got GIRTH. I didn't notice sag, per say, but the way I run my 8 pin connectors from the back of my case it pulls a little downward and the card was more than happy to oblige. I haven't done anything about it yet, but more than likely I will. I can link you to some options I was looking at:

I was originally looking at one of these 2:

But I read there that this brace can interfere with your fans depending on how wide the card is. This card is a wide card, and I have 2 120mm side fans that this would disrupt airflow from

So I'm most likely going to go with this:

u/Caleb_RS · 1 pointr/Amd

Yeah that's a fear of mine, I have something to hold mine up. Eventually I'll get around to buying an actual brace like this one. I know that defeats the purpose of your post by spending more money though.

u/whomad1215 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I like the vertical mounts, hold up the end of the card that isn't screwed in to the back of the case.

I have this , but there are plenty of other options.

u/yeetTL · 1 pointr/buildapc

Look up cooler master universal VGA holder, I use it in my pc to stop you sag and it works great

u/chaos_faction · 1 pointr/buildapc

You can look into getting either this or this.

u/tmitifmtaytji · 1 pointr/nvidia


These cards are very heavy and I think whether they sag depends on how sturdy the back of your case is (whether the GPU screws in).

2080 Ti vary in weight and size considerably so that is a broad category. For $10 I would use one.

EDIT: sorry it's $20

u/DefyedHD · 1 pointr/battlestations

I have a lamp in the back of my room here with this bulb to change the colours. Behind the monitor on the left I have this one too.

u/TheCowardlyFrench · 1 pointr/unpopularopinion

This is the one I use. It's a bit pricey, but absolutely worth it. Especially if you have an amazon echo and you can connect your lights to your smart home. You can just tell it to turn lights on or off, color, brightness, etc.

Totally not needed however for the day night cycle.

Just need to connect the bulbs to your wifi and your phone app.

Philips Website VS Amazon for Philips Hue bulbs.

On the Philips Website I find:

And on Amazon I find:

The model numbers vary by 1. 464486 vs 464487
The descriptions are similar, but not the same.
On the philips website it says nothing about 3rd generation.
Philips calls it an E26 bulb and Amazon calls it an A19 bulb.
Philips talks about integration with Nest, Amazon talks about integration with Echo.

Are they actually the same thing? I'm a little confused at the difference.

Looks as though the hub connects to my router so I'm assuming I can identify lights individually in order to have them spread around the house and do different things?

u/tedmiston · 1 pointr/funny

Prices may have changed since your comment but here's what I see right now:

Color bulbs were $50 a piece a la carte not long ago, and they're $32 on Amazon right now. The color starter kit with 3 bulbs has been $180-200 but is $150 right now.

(50-32) ~= (200-150) / 3 so this seems inline

Now that Amazon has built-in a Hue compatible hub into the new Echo, you can start using Hue bulbs without buying the Phillips hub. Maybe other IoT voice hubs will do this too. So I think the hub is trending downward for basic users. Although I don't think the mini hubs like Echo Dot have it, so maybe not.

u/IndianapolisResident · 1 pointr/googlehome

Personally I use a wink hub and have quite a few GE lights. They recently went up in price and so I found a light on amazon (Sengled ) that works pretty well with my wink hub. I also have a smart plug for my 5 light lamp as I didn't want to pay for 5 bulbs.

$10 per smart bulb is a great deal:

u/Pinyaka · 1 pointr/homeautomation

Amazon. They're normally $10/ea, but currently $8/ea individually and with a very slight additional discount if you're willing to buy 4 or 8 packs.

u/letsmaketacos · 1 pointr/homeassistant

Great work! I was a little surprised that Wink isn't on there. For $35 the 1st gen hub is a great entry point for beginners as a Zigbee/Z-Wave radio. I used Wink's built in automations (Robots) to get started while getting HA up and running. It's easy to turn Wink into a "dumb" hub once you get HA all figured out, then you can look into dedicated radios for HA to take Wink out of the picture completely. Wink can be a little slow at times, but it is a great low cost entry point.

You also might want to add Sengled Element bulbs and Sylvania Smart+ color bulb, they are inexpensive and work extremely well!

u/the_umm_guy · 1 pointr/amazonecho

These are numbered by what questions have been answered!

  1. if you mean 20,000 a month like lump sum, id take the first month and just pay off the rest of my student loans, id have about 2/3 k left over and go buy my family members and I some nice things as its been a rough year. But if given as a weekly check over 4 weeks to equal 20,000 id do that exact same just have to budget it so it all works out.

  2. Oh this is something ive been wanting to do for my bed room, I would say for the house but my mom wouldnt know how to work these buuuuutttttttt I want to spruce up my lighting situation with Philips Color Hue lights. Have one in my ceiling fan light, with one behind my tv, and control them due to a smart device such as iphone/siri, or amazon echo/alexa, google home ect... You can set moods and if youre playing a scary game you can set the lights to like blood red and just say " hey siri set the lights to scary time " and youll watch the lights change from your basic white to a blood red almost, or if youre in a romantic movie night with a lover have it be a nice not to bright pink and so on and so forth im sure you get the idea. heres a link for a nice starter bundle! NOTE Im not exactly sure how to set up the moods to where you tell a home assistant to do so cause i down own any yet but my friend has it and its amazing.

  3. Id reccomend James Patterson tbh. Imsure youve heard of him, but he has great reads I think. One series of his thats great is Maximum Ride!

  4. /u/freakishkittie tbh shes been a great new friend and is always tagging me on here even though Im newish here. she still talks to me even though I forget to respond to her kik messages cause i fall asleep or too tied up in my video games like a damn loser.

I've actually read (though not sure if true) that more melatonin will actually worsen the situation.

The ideal dose is 0.5 to 1.0mg as I understand it.

MUCH more important though, darkness. It should be BLACK where he sleeps.

For 2-3 hours before trying to go to bed he should avoid all lights unless they're a very warm color. Blue light will affect his circadian rhythm. This is the case even in many blind people.

Key points:

  • Black room
  • Background noise. (Fan or Lectrofan)
  • Cool temperature
  • No white or blue light within several hours of sleep (To make screens redder, check out Lux for Android and Flux for PC)
  • Philips Hue light bulbs (These are mighty pricey, but for sleep, oh god. Controlling the color of the lights you surround yourself with will do a tremendous amount for keeping your circadian rhythm in check. I have gotten so much use out of these it's unbelievable.)

> The whole point was to prevent GPU sag but I guess I could run some bends to keep the card propped up.

I'd get creative with some form of pillar or even do something with suspension like in Pi.

I'd do something novel with suspension from above.....but I've got a horizontal motherboard in the HAF XB case.

I've looked into such vertical GPU mounts before for the sake of something novel(gpu laying fan-side up in my case) and I keep coming to the same issue, awkward cabling / plugs.

The only way around it that I see would be to cut into the case to allow for this from Cooler Master or something like it for full access to the back of the card and to use normal cables.

Not sure if your case would need cutting, but most have bars or slats between/under the PCIE covers.

For the gpu sag, if: you have a bit of money to spend and dont forsee using a pci card in the future, I'd reccomend you just go vertical.

Your current case should be able to support a mounting bracket like this:

It will cover up 7 pci slots (though there is a bit of a gap, on my last build I used a pci 90 degree + pci extension for my wifi card, new build didnt require it)

And unlike cases with prebuilt vert mount, this bracket would move your gpu towards the center of the case instead of against the side panel so thermals aren't an issue.

Although I have read that with the CableMod bracket with the original O11 Dynamic case, you won’t be able to install the 3 bottom fans because of how the bracket is situated.

Cooler Master Vertical GPU Mount this mount allows you to install a vertical GPU and also install the 3 bottom fans, from what I have read. Hope this helps!

It really depends on how you want to accomplish it. In a something like mine scenario will be around $200 depending if you find a deal (Philips hue stuff is having discounts in different retail stores and amazon lately):

- Starter pack 4 bulbs with hub:

- Philips hue lightstrip plus:


However, if you have a smaller setup and based on what you said, you can go with around $150 depending on pricing available:

For individual RGB LEDs (or small RGB clusters like these), I use the bottlecaps from Vitamin Water or similar brand drinks. They are like Gatorade bottlecaps but clear translucent plastic instead of opaque orange. Put on top of an RGB and it will provide nice diffusion without absorbing too much light.

What cracks me up the most about this is that I bought one for my son's birthday. In 2010. For $10.

Ok, it doesn't speak wifi, so you can't control it with your phone, and there's probably some other awesome feature that this $50 model has that the existing $10 model doesn't - but it's instructive that the bulb and its controller are collecting dust in a drawer somewhere despite being fully operational. Because, once the novelty of orange light wears off, the product is no longer compelling.

That's just how the cheap ones work. They all do that.

Going a step up, the controller will have a mic and sensitivity adjustment. It'll still suck, it still won't work right, and you'll have to constantly fiddle with the sensitivity/location to get it to work at all. Just the controller costs more than your entire kit.

I was trying to make a fountain with some crystals I found down in Mt. Ida, and this is what happened...

I guess I was just expecting a bit more smooth transitions.

Edit: to be fair, the biggest cost was in the acrylic cube. You can buy the mats cheap, but keeping those things glue together without the right equipment can be tricky, and getting someone to custom make you an acrylic cube gets expensive fast. I had to pay $75 for a 4" x 4" cube, and that was online. (to be fair, it had to be more sturdy than this structure, although this structure would need to stand up to people touching it and leaning on it... Mine just needed to withstand being inside a CNC machine with coolant blasting away at it.)

The bulbs are A19 socket LED so maybe they replaced the ones that came with it with aftermarket ones that give you the option to change the colors. Like these:

u/lindymad · 1 pointr/answers

Something like this?

u/ComputerByte · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/Kriptex · 1 pointr/photography

I'm looking for something to take with me on photography walks that will cast cool colored light. I was looking at something like this 70$ before shipping is kinda the max i want to go. whats important is that I get a pretty good colour spectrum and decent brightness.

I had an idea of buying an LED bulb like this and maybe trying to find a battery powered single light socket thing to carry around.

any other ideas would be great!.

u/Magnezone13 · 1 pointr/AmateurRoomPorn

The lamp is actually from Walmart, then I just put this RGB bulb from Amazon inside it.

u/SwingNinja · 1 pointr/DIY

I'm not sure how big of the area for that LED cluster. You might be able to replace it with a bulb cable thingy (example) and use one of those smart bulbs (example).

u/over112 · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I like what you're going for. Looks great so far.

-Cables of course
-Bedding blends in, some pops of color or even similar bedding but with a texture to it would enhance the room. Combo that with more pillows?
-Lastly, this you may or may not like the idea of but it's cheap, offers badass, dimmable mood lighting, and it's got a remote. Only real downside is they are not as bright as normal lights. Love mine though.

u/Twinkie4sho · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

LED Lights master race. I've got This one in my lamp right now. It could be a bit brighter, but it was a a cheaper bulb and the remote and different colors work great. Late at night I'll turn it to an orange so its less harsh on my eyes. You can also change the brightness and have it fade between colors. So far, no melted monitor.

u/nokarmawhore · 1 pointr/pics

I got this one for $10 and it's great. Not super bright but it does what I want it for. Plus I mainly want it for the ambience not to light my entire room.

u/Shike · 1 pointr/audiophile

They're called light dims - see status of gear AND not get blinded ;)

u/Tyrell97 · 1 pointr/EliteOne

Or just get some light dimming stickers or electrical tape.

u/eviljolly · 1 pointr/pics

Lightdims are pretty convenient. I got them from ThinkGeek like 4 or 5 years ago, but you can get them on Amazon too.

$5 seems like a lot for basically some stickers, but they work so well, and I've yet to run out. I really like it dark when I sleep, so these are a must.

u/BPRhythm0102 · 1 pointr/Surface

Try light dimms. I bought it years ago because one of the indicators on a charger was essentially a flashlight at night. Now I can sleep.

u/killer764 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I use these stickers on top of leds:

You have 2 versions: one that stops 50% of the light so you still see it, one that blocks 100% of the light.
I have used the 50% one on my bamboo style wireless charging pad.

u/Bilbo_Fraggins · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Lightdims. Have both the dimming and blackout versions, and use them all over the place.

u/DashJackson · 1 pointr/ave

My sleep was noticeably improved when I got these
And put them on every damn LED in my bedroom.

u/gtrlum · 1 pointr/hometheater

I would try to move the shiny thing (ir blaster?) off the center channel. I would definitely put something over that giant led on the sub. You could use something like these. They also make ones that totally block the light.

u/vir_papyrus · 1 pointr/buildapc

These are kinda cool if you still want to have just a tiny bit of light. Only 6 bucks.

u/Darius510 · 1 pointr/hardware

Something far easier, less destructive and still let's you see the LEDs.

u/Dreidhen · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Or these, but black electrical tape is cheaper, true.

u/BornOnFeb2nd · 1 pointr/DiWHY

Meet your new best friends...

Of course, you might want to get the "White" variety...

u/givemeyournews · 1 pointr/ZReviews

LightDims can be had in different colors, shapes, and transparencies to dim or hide most any LED.

Available on Amazon

u/truxxor · 1 pointr/audiophile

I bought a pack of these, just for that purpose. Some companies can't help themselves with the blue LEDs.

Great looking system, hope you're enjoying it.

u/Laughmasterb · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Oh. Maybe you could try using something like this?

u/Dandw12786 · 1 pointr/smoking

This thing might help dim that annoying light, they work pretty well.

u/mrmeowskers · 1 pointr/Nest

I completely agree with the general sentiment that this is a stupid change to force on users.

If I was to guess, Google's reacting to bad press from Nest owners who had their cameras watched after their accounts were compromised. A better way to handle the fear of someone watching your cameras without your knowledge:

  1. Popup notifications on any phone with the Nest camera app whenever cameras are viewed.
  2. Make the change to disable the status light be protected by some form of 2FA, like with an SMS code. Now if your account password gets compromised, the attacker still cannot change your cameras LED setting.

    Luckily, I had some LightsDim Black Out stickers ( on hand when my cameras LEDs got turned on. I recommend them, they cover the LED great and blend completely into the Nest cameras.
u/waterboysh · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Get some of these to cover the LED with. I have all mine covered and it's great. You can still see the light if you look at it, but it wont light up your room anymore.

u/cutter89locater · 1 pointr/headphones

Thanks. They're the film sticker from here. They work great :)

u/itbrti · 1 pointr/gadgets

I use a product called LightDims to help reduce LED glare around my house, they have a blackout series (Amazon Link) which may fit the camera and look a bit cleaner than electrical tape.

u/ChetBenning · 1 pointr/answers

Seconded. OP, I bought these on Amazon (not affiliated) and they work reasonably well. They're a static cling type sticker so minimal or no sticker residue.

u/SirBedwyr7 · 1 pointr/laptops

For your lights, may I suggest Black Out Tape as a simple hack? Only if it really bothers you or adds too much to the constellations in your room.

u/tfofurn · 1 pointr/CGPGrey

I'm sure black tape is still nice to carry, but there are several lines of stickers (or static stick-ons) for the express purpose of dimming or blocking LEDs. I've used the 80% LightDims around my entertainment setup and been happy. Another company sells sheets so you can cut custom shapes. I saw both on Amazon.

u/Doomhammer458 · 1 pointr/arduino

where did you buy the lightbulb? Maybe this is the solution to my problem of wanting to buy the Hue system but being too cheap to commit.

u/homeboi808 · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

It seems to only be with Canadian Amazon, the U.S. Amazon has it for ~$20 cheaper than anywhere else-

Their is only one seller for it on, so that plays a big role in the cost.

u/Speed_Reader · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Right now I'm using a cheap digital timer and a daylight spectrum bulb ( It works well, but will look into these dimmable ones.

There are standard E27 screw in RGB LED bulbs that have wifi/bluetooth support and color/brightness fading for ~$35 on aliexpress. But I can't find any which give examples of timers and if they support dimming or just on/off times in the software.

Edit: they only support on/off. This kit advertises color shift on wake but its not cheap ($200)

u/piedpipernyc · 1 pointr/pics
I typically remember my phone and can turn lights off with it.
Doubles as an alarm clock.

u/ChargerEcon · 1 pointr/homeautomation

Thanks everyone! I ended up going with the hue starter kit ( for the lights. I'll add something like an August smart lock and the Nest thermostat down the road.

The suggestions that you pointed me to looked really cool, but honestly, they seem too complicated for me. I know some of them are as easy as copy and paste, but frankly, I've heard the same about flashing my android phone with OTA updates and that didn't exactly work out for me. I just don't have the time to devote to learning what would be necessary to get this done the way that I want to.

Again, thank you for all of your helpful suggestions. It's really great to see such discussion and I really appreciate all of you taking the time to help me.

u/MrBilbro · 1 pointr/ZReviews

They have little mylar circular stickers that will dim it greatly but will still be visible.

u/TSimmonsHJ · 1 pointr/mikrotik

I use these and they work pretty well, too.

I like the variety of sizes, but cutting up window tint makes a lot of sense.

u/Matt3989 · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

off topic, but I swear by these for my electronics

u/plazman30 · 1 pointr/vinyl

Was thinking of trying these: Light Dims

That way I can still see the light, but it's not blinding.

u/mentalsong · 1 pointr/homelab

Nice setup. I like the use of the AC infinity for through-closet ventilation. However, might I suggest a filter for your blue orb of eyesight death?

u/paulmike3 · 1 pointr/homeautomation

Mount one of the Aeon Labs Minimotes on the wall next to the switch and use it to control 8 different things (Hue bulbs individually, scenes, other z-wave switches, etc.). They're on sale at Newegg for $13 until tomorrow (1/28).

Alternately, you could buy the Hue dimmer switch and mount it on the wall. Looks a little nicer, but less functionality.

u/dexterryu · 1 pointr/Hue

Also came across this device and wonder if it would work for things like undercabinet lights and multi-bulb fixtures:

u/rocketspam · 1 pointr/SmartThings

Yes - just pinged our support team and the Philips Hue branded remote will work as well. Here is the Philips one that they know works:

u/fbthowaway · 1 pointr/Hue

I think it does connect to the hub - probably looks to that to see what's assigned for each button. Your internet being out wouldn't effect any physical hue switches because they connect to the bridge on the bridge's network, not your router's.

My router is never really down and I've not once had any issues with the setup as it is (as far as connecting via the app).

They also sell this wall switch which might make more sense for you than the tap depending on what you want:

u/will618 · 1 pointr/homeautomation

You could try removing the old "normal" light switch and hard wiring the light. Then place a blank plate over where the light switch was. This way there is always power going to bulb. Then use (say if you had HUE) the HUE dimmer and attach that to the blank plate.

I have contiplated this, but more so that I don't have all the old switches on the wall, and then all the smart switches also and I don't want a situation where Smartthings can't turn on a light cause a light switch on the wall is off.

I just now have to decide between Hue and Lightify.

u/demonjrules · 1 pointr/Hue

Probably not the answer you are looking for as this is not automatic but you could get the dimmer remote Pressing the ON button once the lights are already on will allow you to cycle through 4 different scenes with no ugly transitioning

u/Vlad_the_Homeowner · 1 pointr/DIY

Are you saying that you want to keep the 3 different switches plus have the fourth which is a master (3-way) switch for all three? Complicated. Think you'd have to do what u/Reeeph suggests below, but that means getting three sets of wires between the master switch and each of the other 3. Likely a PIA unless you have easy attic or crawlspace access to all four points.

If you just want one switch to control them all there's a simple solution. Remove all three switches (open up, remove the switch and tie the wires together, cover up with a blank plate). Then put Hue lightbulbs in each, and get a Dimmer Switch:

u/NOTaMango · 1 pointr/homeautomation

I would recommend you go with the color hues, they're just awesome (link to floods)

I don't know of floods that are white only for hue, at least not that I've seen.

You would want the hue switch which is programmable to do different scenes, and it's rather easy to set up and is very responsive. You only need one switch to control multiple bulbs.(link to switch)

And remember you need some kind of hub to control the hue bulbs.

u/darga89 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Have a nearby outlet or space for a large UPS? Philips also makes a LED strip which works with that wireless switch. Recharging the UPS would get a little annoying though so an outlet would be best.

u/Gameologist · 1 pointr/jailbreak

They sell dimmer switches and they have a bundle deal. They also work with Amazon Alexa. Right now I'm just using my phone and like you implied it's kinda bothersome but I think I'm going to invest in some of the dimmers or an Echo Dot

u/Marauder2 · 1 pointr/homeautomation

There's 2 different ways you can go, bulbs and switches.

With Hue lights you'll need to leave the switch on at all times. You can turn the switch off and the lights will go off, but then they have no power so you can't control them with your phone/voice. If you get Hue lights, I recommend leaving the switch on (I taped it so it can't be turned off, but you can get nice covers) and get a Hue dimmer It works like a regular switch and works really well, you can even program different scenes based on the button press duration or number of presses.

But if you have a room with a lot of bulbs, it can be expensive to buy individual smart bulbs. In this case, you can get a smart switch, I think most work on Z-Wave. You will need a Hub to connect with the switch, either SmartThings or something more DIY like Home Assistant, and once you have a Hub you can control the light with your voice, phone, or through the regular manual switch.

u/oa__ · 1 pointr/Hue

To make it easier for other people to find/google your request, here is the correct name for the switch:

Philips Hue Dimmer Switch
929001173601 / Philips Hue Wireless Dimming Kit 929001136905


So far I've only taken apart the Philips Hue Motion Sensor just to see how it works. I haven't posted any as they probably already exist.

I will disassemble the Dimmer Switch and post some photos of it if I happen to get one next week.

u/jgatcomb · 1 pointr/winkhub

Thanks - here is a link to the dimmer I am talking about. I am likely just going to add a Wink Hub (and possibly a Smart Things Hub) to the fold.

Also as some one who used to play wow I would recommend getting an ssd. It helps a lot with load times.

Yes - it's available as a standalone product. Amazon (UK) has it, so I'd imagine it's available at retailers wherever you are.

u/SloppyCandy · 1 pointr/buildapc

Are you talking about the Hue+ or the normal Hue? You can see both on this page.

The Hue+ really has no controls on the unit, but the original Hue makes more sense with what you are telling me.

u/zarkan80 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Is my current motherboard here compatible with the NZXT Hue+ ? I can provide my PSU and such if needed. Unsure if I have the correct connectors for it and such. Would I need an internal USB hub? Thanks!

u/MrAllahdin · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have some CableMod WideBeam Magnetic RGB LED Strips, and I'm wondering if they are capable of doing something like this and having the colors cycle through the strip (instead of the entire strip cycling together).

If I was to purchase something like the NZXT Hue+ would I be able to do that with my RGB strips?

u/d0n7w0rry4b0u717 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I have a NZXT Hue+. Right now has Outrun themed colors. I can easily change the colors when I feel like I need something fresh. Sometimes I just have them set to white, sometimes I change them to fit the holiday, sometimes I do different game themes, or sometimes I just set it to a color that fits my mood. The outrun color scheme is that main one I stick with though.

This is the new version of the Hue.

Edit: You can turn them off. I see so many anti-RGB elitists. One of the things I see come up often is that the lights can be annoying at certain times (though personally they haven't annoyed me at all). If you set the color to black, it's just like having no lights at all.

u/Grizzled--Kinda · 1 pointr/buildapc

You might look into an NZXT rgb LED controller, not sure if you need it. I would also get an Asus Mobo that has Aura, with that you can control the rgb LEDs on the RAM and if you got an Asus GPU, the LED's on that as well. So essentially you could have two rgb LED systems, they won't sync together but it would still be nice.

I ordered it knowing that they'll send it to me when they get some in. My next build isn't going to be ready until after Christmas (and retrailers stop gouging 6700k's) so it's not an urgent matter for me.

If you can wait I'd just order it from Amazon. I'd rather order from Amazon who I know I can trust than scouring the web for a retailer I'm not sure I can trust.

If you have a spare 2.5" drive bay in your case's front panel, check out the NZXT Hue+. It's a comprehensive controller/management system for all your RGB needs. If you need extra strips, it can be slightly pricey (check Amazon), but the cost can be well worth it, from what I've seen.

If you want price tracking, this page on CamelCamelCamel should have you covered, for Amazon USA, anyway. Here's price tracking for the extension kit, too.

u/Chaliandra · 1 pointr/buildapc
  • Get the Msi z270 carbon pro, a lot cheaper and can OC just as good

  • Don't bother with the vengeance RAM sticks. They light up, but with RGB fans and a $20 RGB LED strip, you'll have more than enough light.

  • Opt for the 1080 ti SC2 edition from EVGA. Has the same ICX cooling technology and is around $719. Just doesn't light up, but once again, hardly noticeable with RGB fans and LEDs.

  • There are cheaper fans than the noctua ones. Corsair AF140 mm Fans are much cheaper, silent and have more lights than a military base on full alert.

  • You can get a mid-tower ATX case if you get a ATX z270 motherboard, mid-towers are usually between $50-$90
u/PindropAUS · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/Zodiac____ · 1 pointr/buildapc

Well, with normal RGBs it would be a virtual button in your PC you need to press.

If you want a physical button you can get something like this which comes with a remote. For changing to super saiyan it would be two button presses though, one for the color to yellow and one to set it to flicker/breathing.

Couldn’t seem to add it on PCPP but feel free to add a RGB strip like this one - I already included RGB ram, RGB fans, and a white case, and a white cpu fan, but you could opt for an RGB fan also like this one - Anyway, this will be a great gaming build, especially if you overclock, and the 6 core performs great for school!

Edit: and for GPU a 1070 ti will be perfect for steady 60FPS max settings 1440p gaming and it will bring your total to around $1400.

Depends what LEDs you get. Some, like this item on amazon, plug into your power supply and not the MOBO

u/RosenWeiss9 · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

I use 19w on an 8g. it's on the very high end, honestly. you're going to grow a lot of algae. I wouldn't do it.

also you can save SO much money by just going to home depot, getting one or two of these

and one or two of these

fancy lights can be a ripoff and you can get the same thing by just doing your own LED's. make sure you go by watts used and not watt equivalents

u/rabidelfman · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

Tons. If you're looking for ready-made lights, Finnex makes some great options. It also depends on the depth to the substrate. The Finnex Stingray is 30 PAR at 12", same with the Current Freshwater Plus, the Stingray being much less expensive. I would suggest using two 24" on either side. You could use a single 48" light, since it's LED and won't nuke the plastic.

Alternatively, these fixtures are cheap, and you can use bulbs like this. You can either set them on top of your glass top, or hang them. Very cheap, very good lighting.

u/Xme1 · 1 pointr/IndoorGarden

I think you would benefit from 6500k more than 5000k. Something about having blue in the spectrum or something.

Also I've read a lot about just using those CFL bulbs (the spiral bulbs) but you have to make sure they aren't close to the plant because they radiate heat.

If you have around 8 inches above your tanks, I think the home depot clamp lights with some generic 6500k led bulbs do a great job, plus it's pretty cheap and easy to add more or less lighting depending on your needs. I used a dremel to cut off the diffuser on mine, and I think it makes a difference in how strong the lighting is.

The fluorescent lights are 2ft. These ones: ( I couldn't find 3ft lights I liked (although I think they would be too long), so I went with the 2ft and augmented them with a couple of simple reflectors with these bulbs: (


The whole setup is about 3ft wide. The shelving unit is a simple rolling set of shelves. For each shelf, I made a square frame and screwed wire mesh into it, otherwise the spacing on the shelves is too much and the pots tip over when trying to move them. Then the whole thing gets wrapped in a mylar emergency blanket. They're super reflective and keep a lot of the light in.

The TP-Link bulbs are the best deal. $20 USD

no hub required

u/trueorderofplayer · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

One thought, if you already have a smart speaker you can get a no-hub smart bulb for the same price as you are pyles no for the timer.

You can do a WiFi socket to plug it into or a WiFi light bulb and set a timer for it directly. I have a few of those kicking around, having an almost 2 year old, and they're handy. I'm trying to WiFi everything around here. A/C, pool, lights, etc. I went with TP-Link as a brand but there are others out there.

u/Sgt-JimmyRustles · 1 pointr/smarthome

Well it's using something since we have an FCC listing. But uh, I don't know what app it would use since I'm not seeing information on it.

Try this one instead:

This could also be done with smart lights and custom alarm tones, which is the path I took.

TP-Link has smart bulbs for about $40 or less and don't require the smart home hub or anything extra. Just handled through an app and WiFi. You can set custom schedules for other things as well or control them through a smart assistant.

Isn't this the same bulb for sale from amazon for $19.99? I have a few of these, this seems to be their default price here.

u/sillyrants · 1 pointr/AskTechnology

You don't even need a plug, just get a $20 smart bulb:

The included app lets you program the bulb on a schedule, such as 50% brightness at 7am and then 100% brightness at 5pm or whatever.

I have four of these hooked up to lamps:

I'm going to try these on my outside porch lights:
Kasa Smart Wi-Fi LED Light Bulb by TP-Link - Soft White, Dimmable, A19, No Hub Required, Works with Alexa and Google Assistant (LB100)

It's pretty cool because I can just say "Hey Google, turn on all the lights! Or turn off all the lights! Or you can call out the name of the room each one is in individually to control it.

I use this for the control:

u/dagz855 · 1 pointr/amazonecho

Thanks all for the reply. Lifx bulbs are expensive. Like $50 on amazon. I found these tho and wonder if they are good.

u/chasemeee · 1 pointr/amazonecho


I have bought LB100, 110, 120 and 130.

MY thoughts on LB100:
the listing seems to be a lie unless they updated the bulb, lb100 and 110 are just yellow, not white....

LB 120: I absolutely LOVE this one (with tunable white - Because I really like white light, not sure why, but it's just what I'm used)

LB 130: the colors are cool, but if you are looking for WHITE light, this is NOT for you because you can never get a true white out of it unlike the LB120.

I've never looked at TP Link's actual website, but the amazon product page does a pretty decent job of laying out your options:

u/XAznBeastX · 1 pointr/buildapc

Oof that's really expensive. Do you know about this brace?

u/Witcher_Of_Cainhurst · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Even with the much thinner heatsink on my 1080 Strix card, it was sagging after a few months. It happens little by little so you won't notice it at first, and the PCB and backplate can get a slight bend over time from the weight.

You can get a cheap GPU brace on Amazon for like $10-20. There's 2 styles, one is a more discreet bracket arm and the other is a sturdier kickstand kinda thing. I went for the discreet one personally because I didn't want it to show much. There's different brands with different looks btw, those are just an example of each style. Also some people get creative and use Lego figures and stuff as a stand.

u/PM_ME_IF_UR_BATMAN · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

If you want a cheap option and have a taller case I use this coolermaster gpu bracket. It doesn't get in the way of using other pcie lanes, has magnetic feet and blends into the black of my case well.

u/marbar8 · 1 pointr/nvidia

Look at this


If you're willing to spend ~$14, this is a pretty solid solution. I own it and am happy with it.

u/Suicide_anal_bomber · 1 pointr/nvidia

yeah it should work ,, since you got a radiator you will have to put it on the white bar, i think on mine on the bottom of the stand theres a screw if you loosen you can move it around to fit on the white bit, something like this would work better for you

this one is what i used

they are not that long, its two bars screwed togsther for 2 card support, you can use just one bar and it should be algs

EDIT: just realized you dont have a front mounted radiator in which case either one will work

u/-UserRemoved- · 1 pointr/buildapc

These already exist, and there are many

u/SirAxolotlTheThird · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

you're welcome :)

although i have heard that some cards with slim shrouds might not be able to use this bracket without some jerry rigging to make sure the bumps that support the gpu don't hit the fan blades, as is the case with all brackets of this type.

if this is the case then something like this might be a better fit.

u/Manbient · 0 pointsr/Hue

If you don't need fancy or good quality, don't get Hue. Hue is slow to react to music, and you should look at something that has the sensor for sound built right into the controller PCB.

Something like this maybe:

Just make sure to get the right voltage strips (RGB should be good enough, unless you really want white), and an adequate power supply.

u/TheMavrick · 0 pointsr/homeautomation

I've got the same problem in my main room. I hooked up a Flic to a couple LifX bulbs and it works great. (Have the Flic connected to my previous smartphone that I leave plugged in the closet on wifi)

u/4killmaster · 0 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Philips hue lighting is awesome, a little pricey so you may want to contain it to a media or living room. You can sync the lights to movies, music and control them through a smartphone or laptop.

u/Reflect_Truth · -1 pointsr/Hue

As said above, it IS on Amazon. It’s just 40% more in price than a month ago. Here’s the white/color version:

u/AdonisChrist · -1 pointsr/InteriorDesign

Google "hue lights competitor" to do your own further research.

Looks like there's these Lumen bulbs, but honestly if you want a color-changing lightbulb that you can control from your phone Philips seems to be on point with hue.

Also, why are you capitalizing hue? Everywhere on their site it's all lowercase. Same with amazon.

u/-Runis- · -12 pointsr/nvidia

When you get an expensive video card, cant you spare 20 bucks to get a gpu holder?

That Wall-E is 160$ i see.

Posts like this are getting annoying.
