I have a LED strip with a wonderful no touch dimmer on the bottom of the kitchen cabinets. What I would like to do is to "link" the inner lighting of the cabinets to the same switch, in a manner that when the dimmer is turned on, the cabinet lighting is also turned on, but without any dimming.
My first thought was to add a relay in series to the dimmer, which would turn on the strip directly from the power supply. But the dimmer adjusts the voltage between 7 and 12 V. Therefore the voltage would kill a 5 V relay, and the 12 V relay would only work on max dimmer brightness.
My question is, is there a good way of making this work (haven't found relays that work with multiple DC trigger voltages), without adding an additional switch?
