I added led lights under my awning using the porch light as the power source. Centered the led strip under the awning... 16' on a 20' awning. Used the wire included in the led package to connect to the end and run back to the awning light. I used 3m tape for the led strip and wire. Concealed the controller in the awning light and left the remote sensor exposed between the amber lens and the housing. I put a led lamp in the porch light, but I could remove it if I want to. Works great, no additional holes, and the controller starts on last setting/color.
