LED strip lights
are becoming increasingly popular for home lighting. Compared to regular lights, LED strip lights have some benefits including that they use very little electricity, have a very long lifespan, and don't produce much heat. Buying LED strip lights may seem straight forward, but there are actually many different factors that buyers need to take into consideration to ensure they get the right lights for their needs.
LED strip light is a generic term used to describe the many different types of LED lights that come in strips. Depending on how you plan on using the LEDs, you may actually need one type of LED light strip over another. For example, coated LED strip lights are better suited for areas like bathrooms because they are generally waterproof. For areas like walkways though, you may want to opt for aluminum panel LED light strips.
When buying LED strip lights, a lot of people make the mistake of only looking at the length of the strip. While this is obviously important, they also need to look at the amount of LEDs in the length. Ideally, you should look for the LED strip lights that have the highest amount of LEDs per foot (or meter, yard, etc). If the LED lights are spaced too far apart, the strip could produce spot-like lighting instead of a clean line of light.
LED strip lights come in a wide range of colors as well as strips that can change colors. The most basic LED strip lights are called ‘non addressable' and will only emit one fixed color of light. They are cheap to purchase and generally easier to install. A second type of LED light is called ‘non addressable RGB strips'. These LED lights can display any Red-Green-Blue color. These are different than ‘addressable RGB' LED strip lights.
Shopping for LED strip lights doesn't have to be difficult so long as you know what to look for. Most importantly, buyers will want to make sure they understand their options for installation, power demands, and colors. There are also many LED strip lights for specialized use, such as LEDs that are programmable.
