You should check few things to identify an issue:
1. Please make sure power plug cord connected to the panel with IR sensor to the marked side "Connect Power" (it will be the red sticker with red arrow).
2. Is Bar with IR sensor first in line?
3. Are there any objects within 5 inches from the sensor ( wall, wood board, any kitchen supplies)? They may block sensor and interrupt correct work of handwave activation and dimming function.
4. If you have cabinet lip, make a sure panel with the sensor not installed close to it (should be at least 5 inches from the lip), it might block the sensor. As a test you can remove panel with sensor and test it on open space, please make sure power plug cord connected to the panel with IR sensor to the marked side "Connect Power" (it will be red sticker with red arrow).
Depending on how much light you desire. Based on our experience and feedback from our customers, here is list of our recommendations :
7" LED bar for cabinets up to 12", 12" bar for up to 20", 20" bar for up to 30" and 40" bar for up to 60".
Please remember each project are unique, these are basic recommendation to get sufficient light under your cabinet, shelf , work space etc.
Some clients install panels together, depending on desired effect and brightness.

Yes, all of EShine kits are fully modular. Just make sure that your power supply has enough wattage and have similar voltage (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) to add the extra panels needed for your project! If you connect bar which has different volatge it will NOT work with your existing system.
DO NOT overload power supply, follow our wattage consumption chart:
20" - 5W+-10%
40" - 10W+-10%
Make sure total sum of wattage in your system do not go over of your power supply capacity.
Example: 12 inch panel consumes 3W, you can add up to 4 12 in led bars to 12W power supply.
Yes you can use two Eshine LED panels with IR in one installation but you need to split them on two sides using our female -male/male splitter. Each panel will be controlled on/off on its own and will have a dimming function on it's side.
Yes! You can find a wide range of extension cords for our lights in our store.
Yes you can control EShine Under Cabinet Lighting by regular switch, but you will need to bypass sensor. To bypass sensor you need to connect power cord to opposite side of marked side of the panel with IR sensor (marked “Connect Power”). This way light can be controlled by the switch and dimmer (if you have one, make sure it is compatible with 12V-24V, wall switch dimmers will not work due to voltage difference) or plug/unplug power supply.
You can hardwire EShine Under Cabine Lighting, but you will need to get transformer from 110V to 12V DC because operating voltage is 12V DC. We suggest that you contact licensed electrician for this type of installation.
You may calculate how many lights you can use with power supply.

7" bar - 2W+/-10%
12" bar - 3W+/-10%
20" bar - 5W+/-10%
40" bar - 10W+/-10%
Sum up the wattage of all your LED bars, based on number you get +/-10% choose desired power supply.
2x 12 inch bars +1 x 20 inch bar + 7 inch bar
Total wattage for this chain: 2X3W+5W+2W=13W
12V DC 12W Power supply can be suitable since 13W not going over 10% of power adаpter capacity .
Attention! 12V panels are not compatible with 24V panels and power supply!
