    Wall switched outlets with LED strip - what Casetta in-Wall will work?

    Hello. I have several in-wall switched outlets (fireplace mantle, above cabinets, on top of bridge,etc) in my kitchen and great room that I would like to control my existing Supernight RGBWW 5050 LED light strips.

    I don't need dimming, just power on/off and be able to be controlled with my other Caseta Wireless switches and hub. Is there a product that will work? Here's the link to the LED strip: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The wall switches have two wires plus ground.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Devin

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will be educating myself more on how to identify my electrical wiring and testing it.

    I bought a tester at Home Depot yesterday after a discussion of my wiring with one of their electrical reps. I checked one of my switched wall outlets this morning and both leads are hot, so I don't have a neutral. What switch can I use for this application as I think the suggested PD-6ANS-WH requires a neutral wire.

    Thanks

    At the switch location. The tester is supposed to only light up and make a noise for the hot wire - it did it on both.

    If the switch was in the on position, then both would light up hot. And a lot of testers are not very sensitive, might have picked up the other hot wire for a false positive.

    Without the neutral, you'll need the PD-5WS-DV-WH. I can almost assure you that you'll need to use the LUT-MLC that comes with it to get the tape light to turn off. Down side to the 5WS, it has a higher minimum wattage than a neutral switch. You may find it doesn't behave normally/well with a low power tape set-up.

    Thanks for the follow up. I wondered about whether the switch was on or not - I was rushing a big this morning when I did the quick check. I'll re-check tonight.

    I appreciate all your help!
