Controller to 6-Pin Adapter (Hardwired)

Product Description

This controller to 6-pin adapter, specifically designed for the Philips Hue Lightstrip system, allows for any Litcessory product or a Philips Lightstrip Plus Extension to be connected directly to a Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus controller. There are two versions of this adapter, a hardwired version and a detachable version. You will need to identify which version you need by looking at your Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus controller.

These adapters solve the issue created by the starter lightstrip either being directly attached to the controller (the Hardwired Version) or the issue created by the controller’s connector size being smaller than any Litcessory product or a Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus Extension (the Detachable Version).

One adapter connects to the controller and the other attaches to the starter lightstrip. Once both adapters are attached, it will provide a 6-pin connection between the controller and the starter lightstrip that can be used to attach any Litcessory product or a Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus Extension.

This product is great for:

  • Any custom lighting setup where a Litcessory extension cable is placed between the controller and the first strip of lights
  • Installations where the controller needs to be placed in a different location than the first strip of lights (for example, to reach a power source)

FAQs

To connect two cut lightstrips together with a Litcessory Extension Cable, you will need to use one of our 6-pin to cut-end products: a 6-Pin to Cut-End Extension Connector, a 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector, or a 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector (Solder-On). This will allow you to convert the cut end of the lightstrip into a 6-pin connector.

  1. Connect the cut-end connector side of the cable to the cut lightstrip.
  2. Plug the extension cable into the 6-pin side of the 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector.
  3. Connect a second 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector to the other cut lightstrip

If your lights are not the right colors after connecting a cut-end connector, this means that the cut-end connector is not making a solid connection with the solder points on the lightstrips. Try the following:

  1. Unplug the power source
  2. Ensure the backside of the solder points (the side opposite of the LED lights) are making contact with the cut-end connector’s metal prongs, and that the cut-end of the lightstrip is fully inserted.
  3. Close the lid of the cut-end connector and clamp down with a pair of pliers. Use plenty of pressure. You should hear a slight “snap”.
  4. To ensure your cut-end connector stays tight, you can wrap the cut-end connector tightly with electrical tape.

If you are still having issues after trying the above steps, please contact our awesome support team. We are always happy to help!

Remember: Cut lightstrips connect only to cut-end connectors and 6-pin ends can only connect to 6-pin connectors. Cut lightstrips cannot connect to a 6-pin connector.

If you are connecting the cut lightstrip to another cut lightstrip, you can use either of your cut-end to cut-end connectors: a Cut-End to Cut-End Connectors or a Cut-End to Cut-End Extensions Connector.

If you connecting the cut lightstrip to an uncut Philips Extension Lightstrip or a Litcessory product, you can use any of our 6-pin to cut-end products: a 6-Pin to Cut-End Extension Connector, a 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector or a 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector (Solder On).
