Best RGB LED strip for Holiday Decoration
By Maurizio L.
I initially started searching for Christmas lights and decided to go towards LED. Then I noticed a house in a nearby neighborhood that had installed LED strips permanently. The idea of putting lights up once and having the ability to even turn them on/off in any seasonal color felt like a huge win. It was a bit more of an investment than regular Christmas lights, but I'll never need to take them down or put them back up.
Ok so about these specific lights. It was important to find a strip that was coat effective, weather proof, and easy to install. These hit all three. Comparing them to other brands, these give the most bang for your buck. For the same price most others only offer 5 meters where they offer double. The strips have a thick clear silicon finish which makes them weather proofing. It is importation note, these are not to be submerged in water. Finally they have a pretty strong 3M brand backing making them easy to adjust to any clean flat surface.
To install, I first planned out my power source which I decided my garage had an electrical outlet allowing me to keep the transformer inside the garage. I used a standard RGB wire and connectors also found on Amazon to get wiring to the first strip. I used rubbing alcohol to clean the siding of the house really well, peeled the backing from the strip and taped the strip to the inner park of my roofs awning. I used RBG brackets to secure the two ends for extra durability.
It is slightly more effort than plug and play, but the extra time makes for that permanent install. The strip is so thin, it is barely noticeable during the day unless you really look for it.
Overall very happy with the purchase and especially with their customer service. I had some questions on install and they were quick to respond and ensure my complete satisfaction. Thank You!!

Not even water resistant
Bought the "water proof" coated light string. Used it it make an aqua lamp following the instructions from King of DIY on YouTube. They where. It submerged, just above the tank with some condensation building up on them. These are not waterproof. Light string shorted out after a few weeks.

They work fine. However the backing on the lights does not stick to anything. after 3 days of continually trying to get the lights to stick by themselves I went out and purchased Gorilla double sided tape. They stay perfect now.
