You really can use anything, I use mine with a 12vdc relay connected (as that controller uses 12vdc) to one channel as you only need on and off, so you could even use an AC controller if you drive an AC relay from 1 channel. You can also connect it straight upto any DC controller even if the controller voltage is not 5vdc. Refer to the wiki example 2 or 3 from this wiki page link , just ensure you dont use dimming or shimmer or twinkle effectsBrettus said:Hi,
What is the best controller to use for these lights. I dont have any controllers yet and am needing on to do the 5v.
