    These are addressable LED's it's not all one color.. I think these done in blocks of 3 so you can have colours chasing each other for example.

    I suspect it’s more that the App is programmed for a set number of LEDs and can’t easily be changed.

    These are 150leds so 30 led modules per meter, so if you were to cut them in half and can’t change what the app knows as the number of LEDs you may find some effects give funny results. Let’s say you have a simple effect like the Knight Rider scanner and it scans left to right once a second. If you cut the strip in half but don’t tell the app of the change in LED number the first half second will be fine, but the strip will be off for half a second as it’s sending commands to the now missing set of LEDs.

    If you want more control, and are technically minded look at WLED (WLED on GitHub ) that runs in an ESP8266. It needs a bit more in terms of setting up and more hardware as you need to have a controller and a level shifter to send out than this all in one solution but gives you more flexibility. WLED can run strips up to 1500 LEDs, but there’s a whole lot more issues with making sure all the LEDs get enough power as you use more LEDs.

    This hub gives you the option to add their bots products which are quite a lot and each of them has a designated controller with different buttons/action, then there is another section where you can create you own control for lot of kind of devices like TV, fan, AC, leds, etc. To be honest at the moment I haven't created a controller for led with different colours, I ordered this strip so will try once I have it. I will need to check all the options but I'm sure it can be done as you can add buttons and then name them. By the way you can use Alexa which, I can confirm as I'm using with it. Algo Google.

    +1 for WLED. Its superb.
    These motherboards for wemos D1 ESP boards are cheap and good: ebay.co.uk/itm…472

    I think you might be correct regarding the limitation being in the controller expecting fixed number of LEDs.
    Cutting the strip and adding extending wires (e.g. to cover under multiple areas from one strip) should still be possible

    Maybe you can cut it but my guess is the the Govee App can't be told how long the strip after cutting so you will get odd effects where it tries to light up LED's that are not there.

    A Single 10M strip of most LED's is going to be a problem, the voltage drop at the start of the strip and at the last LED at the 10M mark will be significant and may lead to LED's not lighting up or being different colours.

    You really need to either use 5M strips or look at injecting more power in at the 5M mark. Govee did a kit that was on here recently that had 2 x 5M strips so the controller had two outputs, each to a seperate strip, and you effectivly put the controller in the middle, but it was only "standard" 5050 so one one colour at a time.

    If you really want one 10M strip you will probalby have to use 12V LED's (these are 5V) but thay are not so common and won't be at this price point.

    Your almost certainly right. It’s a one box kit, it may not be the best kit but it’s a great introduction..

    I’ve bought a set to use with WLED as at a tenner for the strip and a PSU (so I’m planning on throwing out the controller if I can’t reflash it’s) it’s pretty cheap….

    They are 12v hence longer than the 5m limit we normally see with 5v.

    Note despite how look in the images these types of LED strips only show one colour on all the LEDs. You cannot get the red yellow green and blue at the same time with those LEDs as the images show.

    I read the person's post that I replied to as them wanting something similar to what they already have. I'm not knocking this deal, just suggesting a cheap direct replacement to what they have in a kids bedroom that's broken.
    If they really want a long m led strip with individual controllable LEDs then it's a lot more complicated and a lot more expensive. I've built my own ambilight clone with Hyperion using a RPI and custom software, it's not something I'd want to wire at the top of a kids bedroom and that setup was only 7m

    Agree- absolutely that board wil work no issues.
    My reasons for concluding was from the photos (shows 12v line on the strip and there are discreet black chips on the strip) and amz listing mentions 12v.
    Neither is a rock solid data source - govee might not be considered the most reliable source of info or photos

    I ordered 4 sets, all arrived yesterday but managed to get two of them installed.

    The app is actually very very well featured with lots of preset options. At the moment mine are set to a revolving pink/warm theme at 25% brightness. Got a timer for "sunrise" set daily which lights the room slowly over a 15 minute period (it worked well today!) so as I'm more with it when my alarm shakes me! Evening, they come on for 2 hours on a predefined theme... £11 each? 3 pints of beer? Superb value!

    I also watched a video to confirm that you CAN cut this exact set at the metal contacts. Unless you cut a stack of them I think you're unlikely to notice any impact on the presets tbh.

    Mine are grouped also so they act as though they're in-sync at a basic level (on/off/brightness etc). May get some more!

    Yes


    They can go *any* colour

    Though non gamma corrected and likely a limited bit range of the controller.

    Put it this way

    Each individual colour can be adjusted from Zero to 255

    So that’s 255*255*255 colours, 16 million!!!

    One of those 16 million will fit your definition of ‘cool white’

    Which essentially will be full white, but removing a lot of the red and leaving some green

    I think they are. Certainly are 12v, (2A/24W psu output) but there’s no marking on the on stripICs to indicate what they are. The strip itself has GOVEE branding on it, and at the “cut” marks (yep every three LEDs) there is a line but no scissors icon so I guess they don’t print it to discourage people cutting them.

    Can’t tell what one of the controller chips are. Looks like it’s a custom board, the Nuvotron N76 looks to be the processor, the other I can’t even make anything out on it but I suspect it’s to level shift the processor output.

Certainly are 12v, (2A/24W psu output) but there’s no marking on the on stripICs to indicate what they are. The strip itself has GOVEE branding on it, and at the “cut” marks (yep every three LEDs) there is a line but no scissors icon so I guess they don’t print it to discourage people cutting them.

    Nice info!
    The other chip is likely to be the bluetooth controller - you can see trace from that IC to ANT1, which I assume is the BT antenna.
    Looks like its a multi-purpose board as there is a spade output and pads for FETs to drive traditional RGB LEDs.
    Interesting connectors on the edges of the PCB - I wonder what they are for..

    Thanks for the photos

    I didn't notice the LED outputs are labeled 12V / R / G / B till you mentioned it may be multi use. There are few unpopulated points too so maybe they have a core board and populate it differently for RGB and Addressable LED's


    The connectors are labeled on the switch side, I didn't think it was photo worth However I'm not sure why they are labeled on the reverse. I guess the chips get programmed on the production line, but the two connectors are different, one 5 pin, one 7pin so people can tell them apart, without labels (and they are labeled on English) and robots will not care they go where they are told.
