did you direct wire led ucl from environmentallights?

Ashe42June 4, 2013

We're searching for more affordable LED UCLs and EnvironmentalLights light bars sound as they fit the bill--I had a brief conversation (bad connection) and was told that they can be direct wired or plug and play.

The wiring for direct wire is already in (which is when I belatedly found out that the electrician's choice would cost $1400 for the lights alone....oh, my lack of planning is catching up!!). Has anyone used the light bars, did you DW them and do you like them? I like that they're ultra thin and apparently dimmable. And affordable. Did I mention affordable?

yes, we have the dimmable LED light bars from Environmental lights, and they are direct wired. We went with the warm white LED and LOVE them!! Environmental Lights are wonderful to work with and they will help you put together what you need. I have nothing but positive to say about the lights and the company.

Thanks mom--that's very encouraging. I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm just floundering around here!!

I'm interested to hear this, too. I've been debating between those and these:


How does environmental lights compare, price-wise?

I'll let you know--not sure yet. Haven't looked at inspired LED; can't make head or tail of the website. Can you direct wire them? Have you compared the costs for your set-up?

I'm really useless at all this. I didn't give it a thought when I airily told the builder I wanted UCLs--assumed it was a simple and cheap choice. Hahahahahaha....
