Strip lights have become a very popular lighting solution for both commercial and residential uses. Their biggest benefits are the ease of installation, various customization settings in brightness or color, and smart home compatibility. There are a lot of brands offering LED strip lights and SwitchBot has joined the lighting market recently with some different products. SwitchBot has been well-known for its smart curtain opener and I’m so glad that they are now selling strip lights at an affordable price.
The SwitchBot strip looks the same as many other strips available on the market. It has a flexible design and you can easily attach it to any surface using 3M adhesive on the back. I often use strip lights in my home office where I can stick it to my desk and bookshelf.
The SwitchBot strip offers 3 control methods. You can either use the attached control box, an included IR remote, or SwitchBot app on your phone to control the lighting via Wifi or Bluetooth. Once you pair it with the app, you can also add it to your smart home to control the light with Amazon Alexa or Google Home. You don’t need to buy a separate hub for this setup; I love using voice commands and set up routine to automate the smart lights.
The app also provides a wide range of scenes so that you can set lighting suitable for your mood or environment, for instance, we have scenes like Christmas, Sunset, Halloween, Forest, Autumn, etc. Of course, you can set up your own scene as the strip features a huge range colors for customization. If you don’t want the colors stay the same, there are 5 dynamic effects which are fade in, fade out, display, breath, and flash. When you have a party at your house, you can enable the Music mode. It uses the microphone of your phone to react to the music; You will definitely have more fun then.
I bought a 16.4ft RGB strip light from another brand a few months ago and it cost me nearly $25. Therefore, I am so surprised that SwitchBot is listing this strip for just $19.99. Moreover, they are running a promotional campaign and you can apply the promo code 15SBLIGHTSB to buy the 16.4ft strip for just $12.99. The promo is valid until April 15th and you probably should buy it soon because I’ve never seen such a low price for a similar product.
