    Just received my volt kit. I have 2 hubs with the kit. Do I run 2 separate power lines from the transformer or can I run one line through each hub?

    It is recommended to run a power line from the transformer to each individual hub so, 2 separate runs. While working with LED systems is more forgiving than classic incandescent ones, powering a hub from another hub can lead to overpowering one of the hubs and voltage loss at the fixtures which could lead to a host of issues with that zone of your layout/system.
