The new coloration is so nice!
First of all, one of the advantages for using LEDs is that you won't have to be afraid of them burning down your house! LEDs are light emmiting diodes, they light up if a voltage is passed through, and if they are blown up due to high heat or when their service time is up, the circuit is no longer complete hence there won't be any connection to continue. The LEDs last a long time if they are used properly, it is usually the driver or power supply module that die dirst. Similarly, once the circuit of the driver is blown (usually a capacitor on the PCB), the circuit disconnects. They are often enclosed inside some sort of housings as well.Being a total idiot when it comes to LED lights and making them and all that, I've got a couple of questions for you. Can the LEDs function in a setup with high humidity? Like, if I had a tent or some kind of enclosed space with a humidifier in it, would they work or would I risk burning down the house? Annnnd, can you make ones that will work with T5 fixtures? Is that even a good idea or is it better to scrap those and start again with proper LED fixtures...?
