What is the difference between a retail shelf lighting system, and a home shelf lighting system?

Three differences between them

The choice of lighting products used is different

Retail shelf lighting systems use custom light panels, strips, profile lights, and other lighting products depending on the shelf scheme.

The home shelf lighting system mostly uses light strips to light up the shelves, in addition to the glass with light strips solution will be used to light up the shelves. Because the household cabinets are deep cabinets with large compartments, the light strips are mostly attached to the inner circle of the cabinets.

Whether to use power track and daisy chain power

Retail shelves are mostly custom shelves, and there will be multiple shelves in a store, so using power track and daisy chain power can reduce the number of power supplies as well as facilitate organization and wiring.

Household cabinets generally do not use power track and daisy chain power, mostly using power adapters.

Whether to use RGBw

Retail shelves do not use adjustable RGB and usually use cool white light.

The majority of lighting solutions for home cabinets use warm light or adjustable RGBw for a party atmosphere.
