    Hi! ive bought several lightstrips for my new home and i have a question. the lightstrips can be cutted... ok! but the cutted parts can be added to another strip? lets say i have 2 strips 2m each. can i cut 1m from first and add it to 2nd having as a result 2 strips of 1m and 3m? i think yes but the only problem is if the power supply can manage 3m. i think theres a limit but which is this limit?
    and another question: where is the wi-fi chip, in the power supply or on the strips??

    First of all, you need a Philips Hue hub otherwise you will not be able to connect the stripes to your network. The hub comes with the starter-kit, but it should be able to buy it separately.

    I haven't tried cutting the Lightstripe, but I am pretty sure the parts with a small adapter from Philips. I'll post a link if I find it.

    Dude, I was trying to help you! I'm very sorry that I didn't do as you wished for. Please forgive me, my good sir!

    The Lightstripe can be expanded up to 5 meters.

    Oh my good sir, I have forgotten where I saw it. Maybe your attitude were the reason why I forgot:)
