Great price for the official stuff and voted hot. Followed this blog and was able to add a lot more for much cheaper and really nicely just works out the box

I have quite a few, both 2m & 1m, never had an issue with over heating or colour issues

I personally wouldn’t place in a kitchen or bathroom, where water and steam can get into the element / wiring
Good to know. I was thinking of installing it into the bathroom.

Yes dead straight forward. You'll need wire strippers just to connect to the controller but otherwise it works out the box.

Its a 24v transformer, I’ve connected to my lighting circuit with a 240v to 24v transformer - £10 on amazon and not used the one they supply

I've ordered 3 x controllers and 5 x strips of leds via aliexpress and never had any issues. All have arrived sooner than expected.
The ones from China come in two types: Water-proof (For outside use) and non-Water-proof.
Also in 24bit and 32bit (rgbw)

a.k.a. WS2412B (GRB format) - WorldSemi are the inventors and they make them in the millions.

About £12 for 5 Meters (60 leds/M)


This Philips strip is worth around £2 if that depending on the led count.
I bought the hue light strip during the Prime day promotion. Returned it three days later. Couldn’t get a smooth glow on the wall from behind the av cabinet. Too close to the wall and you will see small deflections from the LEDs and too far and effect is marred by strange shadowing.

For the cost, I expected more. Back it went.

i do however have the hue bulbs which are awesome.

If you don’t currently have Philips Hue but want to splice your own together as explained in the article linked by @Keith33 can you still use the Hue app?
I've got 2 of these for sale. If anyone is interested, please DM me on here. They're brand new, never opened, as I got them with a light strip deal from Amazon.

Probably.
Do they have any significant meaning?
whats the difference between these and cheaper LEDs with a smartplug? ive got 20 meters of LED connected to an alexa plug, are these worth considering?

Only if you have a Philips Hue or zigbee set up. If you already have something else then stick with that.
