A friend recently asked about light fittings for his new house purchase which needs to be done up.
I started thinking about the costs etc. and that recessed LED DC could be a viable option due to the low power consumption and life. Having a quick look at ali express, there are some options for this (and some cool RGB effects):
That got me thinking, he would then need a DC converter for the lights. To do the whole house he would needs lots of converters so why not just have a singluar DC supply near the switch board with one larger adapter? You could then use DC for other devices which in the future could use it as an input e.g. electronics like tv, computer etc.
For things like lighting, you could use much lighter cable which would probably be much cheaper, you could do work yourself since its low voltage and it would be easier to hook your own wind turbines, batteries, solar photo voltaic into the mix.
Is DC distribution within a home/business viable or a good move?
