LED strip light switch

Hi

I am installing undercabinet LED strips. In addition, I have cabinets with glass fronts that I am also going to put strips into. I have this setup on both sides of the kitchen. So I want 4 switches to control each aspect, either the undercabinet or the glass cabinet (x2).

I have been looking all over for a small combination wall-switch that can do this, to no avail

The only thing that I can find is to buy 2 dual-combination regular 120v switches. But that really is going to take up a lot of space on the wall, which is really overkill. I looked for mini-switches but they all are separate and seem to be made for cars etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks

The largest single wall combo switch I know of is 3 switches.

That is why I said 2 dual-combination switches.

Furthermore,

I only have 1 controller.
  • So I need to either get 4 DC Rgb on/off switches to switch these on and off after the controller.
  • Or buy 3 other controllers and put the switch before the controller (i.e.between the transformer and the controller). But then it will be a pain if I want to change the color, uniformly
Also Rgb has four wires, 3 rgb wires and the common. I could put a switch on the common, but I am not sure if electricity is still going to the other 3 wires.

Thanks

Pretty involved switching.

You can interrupt just the common on an RGB setup.
