What do you guys think about this layout?



The blues, listed as 470, are 460-470nm.

Is there a WiFi version ?

Thank you for the feed back.

I wouldn't mind doing so. May i ask why? I've seen all other lighting manufacturers incorporate those into fixtures. Anything specific?

Red and green are said to amplify the disco effect.

3500 is just to yellow, don't want it. Its to easy to swap out.

many youtube vids of people modding these lights

I believe that green looking LED is in reality cyan with 490-505nm and you want to keep it

Well, really need the red for photosynthesis. Preferably, for chlorophyll A and C2. I know too much red can cause bleaching so i'm trying to keep it at 5% of total light. I guess for me, disco isn't a concern and slightly relative when using 120 deg lenses.

Green (500-530nm) mostly cancels whites but i'm using cyan(490nm) which has a slightly high rate of absorption for that. So, i'm comfortable with keeping that out.

I think I also agree on the warm white. Though, it will help with reducing an over all windex coloration.

Yeah, i've been toying with swaping chips for several years now. Not a big deal.
