What Are LED Strip Lights?
LED strip lights are a flexible circuit board which resembles a length of tape or ribbon and is embedded with LEDs (light-emitting diodes) on one side. The narrow strip is backed by double-sided adhesive allowing it to be attached to almost any surface for powerful, colourful, and creative lighting.
Available in different lengths, ranging from 1m to 6m, they are suitable for a wide range of installation scenarios. If your lighting plan requires a longer length, you can also use multiple strips to create the effect you need.
How Do LED Strip Lights Work?
Simply peel the lining from the double-sided adhesive from the back of the LED strip and mount it to your chosen surface. Because the circuit board is thin and flexible, the tape can be installed on curved and uneven surfaces and can be completely invisible until switched on.
Determining the Brightness
Depending on the style and colour of LED ribbon lighting you choose, you will typically have 30- 60 LEDs per metre. The number of LEDs will determine the lumens (brightness) rating of the tape.
Input Voltage & Power Supply
LED ribbon requires an LED driver in order to work. We have drivers suitable for 12V LED strip lights and 24V strip lights. The drivers work to convert the usual 240V of the main supply to the appropriate low voltage for the LED tape.
When choosing the LED driver, it’s important to understand how many metres of LED tape will be connected to it. While one LED driver can power multiple strips, you may also need more than one LED driver for the job.
For example, say you wish to power 3 metres of 4.8w LED strip lights from one driver. To calculate what kind of driver you need (12V or 24V), multiply the 3 metres by the wattage per metre. The total wattage in this scenario is 14.4w, therefore you would choose the driver closest to this wattage.
If you need help deciding which driver is best suited for your project, or whether you should use 12V LED strip lights or 24V, our experts are on hand to help you choose what’s right for you.
Colour Options for LED Strip Lights
Colour temperature is used to describe how warm or cool a light's colour appears and is measured in degrees-Kelvin. Lower temperatures, around 2700k are described as a “warm white” and will give off a yellowish-red tone. Higher colour temperatures will be around 4000k, a "neutral white" and will look slightly more blue-ish.
We provide 24V and 12V LED strip lights in a variety of colours, including natural white, cool white and warm white. There is no rule as to which tone is best as it depends on the mood and overall ambience you wish to create.
Why stop at warm and cool light when you can also find LED tape in multiple colours? With our range of coloured LED strips you can add even more drama and effect to your interiors. Choose from amber, blue, green, and red but if you can’t decide, you can also find tape lighting which changes colour.
Remote Control and Dimmers
Our 24 and 12V LED strip lights can be fully controlled using our range of remote control and wall dimmers. Alternatively, you can also use your smartphone to control your LED lighting with the help of one of our Wifi Controllers. To use this function, all you have to do is download our Lighteez app from either the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store and you’ll have complete control over your property lighting.
