The included remote control allows you to quickly select a range of colours and adjust the brightness to suit your needs. This kit can also be cut and re-joined using the included connectors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought this for decorating kt sons room fro Perth store. I Was impressed with the functionality of the unit. The only thing that let this down was the adhesive strip which I found to be inadequate. When stuck to the ceilling it kept coming away. I ended up using evostick contact adhesive to hold on place which done the job. it would have have had top marks if not for the adhesive strip which is a pity..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have 8 sets of these making up three different light arrays. They have been running several months and now every single one has a problem. The connections seem to fail resulting in the wrong light being emitted. Some of the LED lights fail which then means you will have a strip of colour with a dark patch or a strip of colour with the wrong light showing on some LED depending on the colour selected. If the quality was better these would be fantastic, but it's not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great lighting kit Bought these to light the back bar of our pub and the results are great. These have been in operation now for several months with no problems at all. Will certainly use these in other areas the lighting effect is really good and bright.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute trash Bought this yesterday as i was advised that this was the best quality. This could not be any further from the truth. It has a mind of its own in which light mode to display and thats even when the god dam thing decides to even work. For anyone thinking of buying this kit save yourself the effort and time and stay well clear. Only gave one star as i could not give it none. Joke of a product.

What is the manufacturers code of the driver chip within these strips please? I am looking to drive these from an Arduino + power supply.

Asked by: Martin
The strip that I have (marked 2131DG) has one WS2811S chip per 3 LED segment. (probably too late for you but maybe useful for others in the future).

i have 2 wall units /cupboards on the wall about 5 feet apart,if i cut this light strip,with 1 foot strip in each unit,do you supply the cables to connect them ?

Asked by: meljdc
The supplied interconnects are too short to bridge your 5' gap as they are only about 3" long. You could bridge the gap with any 0.5mm csa 4 core cable (such as telephone cable) if you are a confident solderer.
