I used the 12 volt light in the storage compartment as the power source for the LEDs. I ran the LED power wires beside the power cord for awning.
Bluetooth LED Awning/Frame Lights

Where did you place IR controller for a direct line of sight?

The remote is on my phone and connects via Bluetooth. No direct line of sight needed.

This looks like a great way to go.

My question is, do you have to go in and connect to bluetooth everytime or is it automatic?

I run speakers off my bluetooth phone all the time, would hate to switch bluetooth connections back and forth to control lights.

Maybe the wifi controller is the way to go, I believe that is a direction connection to the units wifi transmitter.

When I open the app remote on my phone, it automatically connects to controller. It will stay connected until you get out of bluetooth range. I can walk 40+ feet out, and still be within range.

My cousin has same setup on his RV and when we camp besides each other I can connect our controllers and control both RVs with a single phone. I can control each controller independently, or group them together so both RVs match. It's pretty slick.
