    Default Backlit house numbers - Calgary?

    Anyone know anywhere local I can get these? Looking for ~4500k color temp, 2 digits, 12" tall.
    These are about 1 month for lead time on Esty. Hoping for something quicker.

    Those are fine but I'm looking for bigger, 12" letters.

    I hadn't thought of that. Another benefit of big numbers.

    They appear to have numbers, but nothing back lit.

    I’m starting to think the word backlit is a foreign word.

    Thanks. They have the same 4 week build time. Probably because they come from alibaba too.

    Except the AliBaba ones are $27 each, vs the housenumbers website at ... $140 per number??? Holy shitballs.

    Plus the power supply.

    It would be a cold day in hell before you find me spending $500+ for house numbers, but maybe not for some of the Beyond ballers...

    Wiring those in cleanly seems like a pain in the ass, a self-contained solar charging version would be appealing.

    i did my own, much smaller though (i think 6 inch) acrylic from aliexpress, plenty visible, i mounted it centered above the garage door so i just drilled a hole through to the garage door opener power and used a generic 12v adapter... then i wired it in to a smart plug and use alexa to turn it on and off at sunset/sunrise.

    We have ours in the same location on our house but they have a built in sunset/sunrise sensor.

    It's the reason I never picked up back-lit numbers. Fuck that.

    Well this thread turned me onto an impulse buy lol. Wasn’t really in the market but looks cool and should be easy enough to install

    Not in a huge rush so i ordered from AliExpress. $62 CAD for two 6” numbers and includes the power supply/driver. Hoping I can somehow tap into my sconces on the side of the garage door so that the number lighting will activate at the same time
