Designed a conversion 3D printed part to change the normal timbertech Halogon deck post cap light to RGBW LED tape lights.
May work with the LED post cap but I have the decklites model DLRRCAPMOD 12 V model.

That is really cool looking! It's definitely giving me some ideas for my outdoor setup. I have mine set up through Insteon. Any idea whether their zwave would work here?

I think only one or two Insteon hubs also suppot Zwave. Not sure if any hubs CQC support works with both Insteon and Zwave.
There musts be a Insteon RGBW controller. I did a quick look but didn't quickly find one.

I have the ISY-994i and have the Zwave module.  The ISY driver (older version) works with Zwave, although it struggles with light intensity (i.e. 40% in driver = 100% in Insteon, so I have to scale the values).  I may have to try this out as a test and see how it works.

I would suggest getting a FIBARO FGRGBWM-441.  The newer 442 version didn't work well with CQC.(for me)
