Can I see your pool table lights?

I built this out of some leftover cedar siding from the house and an old grow light I had in the attic.

I went with the Barrina LED lights from Amazon. I have yet to get them all paired to one remote, and there was a small learning curve, but the price point made it worth it.
I just bought this setup. The pairing to one remote was almost my downfall but it is actually easy. I'll have to find my instructions, but I think it was you turned them off and on with the power cord and hold down the remote button you want to use (A,B, of C).
Here they are....
I love this light setup. The dimmer is the bomb. The color settings are also great.

SlateMan,
Your light looks fantastic. I'm thinking about doing the same. Looking at Barrina's site, the length of the lights and corners, it would appear that the overall light dimensions would be approximately 5 X 9', making it a bit larger than the playing surface.

A few questions. How is the coverage on the table? Is there a lot of spill over on the floor? And lastly, is there a way to shorten up the length of the lights to shrink the overall size if needed?

Thanks, Steve

Steve,

I just measured the inside track of the light using a Dewalt laser ruler. The long rail is 101 5/16 and the short rail is 54 3/4. The width of the lights are 2 1/4. So you can add that to the inside measurements. If I run a plum bob from each corner, it hits my Gold Crown IV logo on each pocket. (I might have too many support wires, but I started with the corners.

You cannot shorten them without some serious skills. So they are probably only good for a 9 foot table. The pieces snap together and lock in, then you have a metal track where you slide a metal plate to support the snaped together pieces.

There is a small shadow under the rails. I compared it to a local poolhall that has the official Diamond Light and my shadow is identical. It does cast off light around the table, but I was okay with that. The white rich light is so clear, I have a blue reflection on my ceiling from the cloth!

At one time, Barrina had an antiglare plastic insert, but I could not find one when I was purchasing.

The four packs each come with a remote. At first the light sequence is tricky as mentioned above. My corners were on one frequency and two of my long pieces were on another. Nothing moved in tandem with the remote. Then, my wife suggested I read the directions. Who knew! So, now they are in sequence. You can change the light tone by powering them off an on quickly (under 10 seconds) or you can use the remote. The lights remember the setting they were on when the power went out, so for the most part, I don't need to make any adjustments, I just turn them on.

If you can find someone local who also wants one, you can cut your cost down about $100.
I bought:
1 four pack of corners. Was $135.91 they have been as low as $99. (I might buy one of these and make a small rectangular light elsewhere with my extra two pack).
2 four packs of long lights were $195.41 each.
So all in, I am at $526.
If you bought 3 four packs of lights and 2 four packs of corners, you could make two full table lights and be in around $420 for each.

I now have a camera on the ceiling in the middle of the table. (Cheap Wyze Camera). I can broadcast the camera from my phone to one of the TVs on the wall. So people sitting around can see all of the action. The pic below is from a $30 camera with the JPG set to 60% of the original to post here.

Me too, I'm going ahead with the Barrina system. I like the built in features and ease of assembly.
Thanks....

Easy to install to.
One upgrade to think about in the future is a Jackdrive garage door opener.

My opener is now off to the side and I love it!
I let a local company sell me one and install it but here is what they look like: https://www.amazon.com/Liftmaster-M...ocphy=9011555&hvtargid=pla-387649130809&psc=1
