My bad, posted in a hurry while playing uno with family

I don't think these are controllable via Alex(a) or Google?

Yup thank you for correcting me, I have looking at the ones that are £21.24. Same company and same length.

Cheers! I have bought the ones with Alexa. I have yeelights that are similar to to this but have to use a plug adapter , these look a nicer form factor.

Thanks ordered the Alexa ones
I’m guessing the Alexa ones just use a different controller? Wondering if you could just source that itself if you own a rgb strip already
Just a heads up the £5 extra ones that work with Alexa don’t work on a 5Ghz network. I had real trouble trying to connect mine to my WiFi mesh. Had to send them back in the end!
Had the Alexa one delivered today. Setting up tomorrow
Just ordered the Alexa ones, thanks.
Would these be bright enough for under counter kitchen lights???

I had smart plugs like this before. Just had to turn off the mesh network and set the router to 2.4 only and set them up. Then change router back to 2.4 and 5, turn network back on. The 5GHz only seems to cause problems in the initial setup. Once setup they can operate fine on a dual frequency network.
£21.24 isn't £5 more than £14.44

Curious to know why you are not using the 2.4ghz option on your mesh? All mesh routers offer it and you should easily be able to connect the Alexa enabled ones to your mesh wifi on the 2.4ghz band.

I am using the following mesh from amazon:
amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

There doesn't seem to be an option to disable the the 5Ghz band so that 2.4Ghz devices can connect. I emailed their tech support and they confirmed that there was no way to disable the 5Ghz from the app. I would probs not recommend it as a WIFI Mesh solution.

Thanks. I guess what I meant was that you don't need to disable 5ghz in order for the Alexa LED strip to work. Your mesh wifi (and any other standard router) will by default support 2.4 ghz, which the Alexa strip needs.

If you have your router admin name and password (usually on the back of the router itself), you should be able to disable it from there. Not sure why the tech support you contacted are telling you that you can't disable it.

I've tested my set of lights with my network, the 5GHz just needs to be disabled temporarily during setup.

Ah right. Usually you can have both bands on separately (I do this on talktalk). So I have 2.4 for the whole house and 5ghz for the living room
