Help With Airing Cupboard Lighting Please

Postby Guyv » Thu Sep 08, 2016 7:54 am

Hi all,

I need to light up my airing cupboard and I'm thinking LED light strips with a sensor that knows when a door is opened. Can you please give me a quick list of the parts I'll need? Many thanks in advance:)

Simply Build It

If you want the light to come on when door is opened, a simple break to make door contact will do. This will act as a switch when the door is opened, by making the circuit closed (turning light on). Then when the door is then closed, it will break the circuit, turning the light off.
