Criacr LED Strip Light 1m
November 2019 |
This is the first set of LED light strips I've purchased. It comes on a reel and has a USB connector for power. The LED section itself measures 1 meter and the cord leading to the USB plug is 67cm. Along this 67cm stretch is the remote receiver which is small and pretty thin so won't affect anything wherever you place it.
The remote control works well and is using RF (Radio Frequency) to work the lights rather than IR (Infra Red). This means that it doesn't work from line-of-sight so you don't have to point it to the lights for it to work, it will just work as long as you're within 10 meters.
There are various modes you can select from by using the remote. By default, or by pressing the 'Green' button on the remote, it is on a solid green color. You can change the brightness by using the brightness controls or change the color by using the color controls. You also have the 'Mode' button where you can have the lights change color by themselves as it cycles through them all in various ways (Blink, Fade, Blend).
The LED strip itself is protected by a clear silicone and has a waterproof rating of IP65. I think this means that it can be used outside but no submerged in water (but you might want to check that out for yourself with a Google search). Either way it protects the LED's form dust etc.
All in all I'm happy with this light strip and would recommend them to you.
