LED strip lights (also known as LED tape, strip lights, or smart lighting) are flexible circuit boards with surface-mounted LEDs, that can be bent to fit even tight corners. Thanks to their adhesive, peel-and-stick backings (solid sticky 3 m tape), they can be easily installed on practically any surface, be it wood, metal or plastic. Being ultra-thin, they can be used in any tight spaces and stay low profile in any circumstances. Thanks to their sequential build, they can be divided at any point between LEDs and still function properly. This makes them highly customizable. LED strips are available in many color options, both single and color changing. Different illumination intensity options allow them to be used both for traditional lighting and any DIY projects. They’re great for illuminating stairs, cupboards, shelves, wardrobes, workspaces and many others. They work both indoors and outdoors — strips rated IP65 or IP68 can be even used in damp or wet locations. LED strips are compatible with most home automation and DMX systems, wall and remote dimmers, which also makes them an ideal option for mood lighting. They’re easy to use and as safe as any electrical lighting. Moreover, their power usage and heat output are very low, which enables them to be kept on for long periods of time.
