So the voltage rating on the fuse matter does not matter? I am assuming that in a short circuit situation the power supply draws more amperage than what the circuit can handle and that is what blows the fuse, is that correct. I only have one 5v out on the psu how do i splice the wires to go to the sensors and multiple points on strip, many thanks for your answers
A 1mm^2 copper wire of length 1m is about 17 milliohms.Resistance goes up with the length and down with the area. V = IR will do the rest, no need for any lookup tables once you know this.
Could i use a car fuse or does it need to be a glass one

I understand if I separate the strip into sections i can fuse each section with a 5 amp fuse but I need to think about how to hide the wires.
Quite frankly, I don't see how you can feel comfortable telling this to a newbie who would have no way of knowing (without the AWG) that 1 mm^2 is 17 guage (1.04 to be exact)(AWG) which is in between 16 and 18 guuage and which almost nobody sells. This is useless information for a newbie.
Protection type :Shut down O/P voltage,re-power on to recover
