Versatile Lighting Option: Perfect for adding task lighting or accent color to any room, smart led strip lights are a great option for unique locations like under kitchen cabinets and islands, along bedroom walls, or lining a fireplace mantle or staircase. The 2M (6.56ft.) strip can be shortened for the perfect fit by cutting along pre-marked lines.

I have tried a number of LED strips and I bought this one to replace a dual T8 light I had mounted behind my QLED television; I like a light behind my television for glare-free ambient lighting; I’ve tried quite a few strips but kept going back to remounting the shop light, being disappointed with every light strip (either due to poor-quality light, or too dim).
This light is EXCELLENT! It provides a good quality white, which regardless of tuning illuminates well without washing out or significantly shifting colors, despite having a CRI of only 80. This light delivers a very bright white, and the colors are well-saturated and brighter than is typical of RGBW lighting. It accomplishes its primary objective very well.
The light may be used without a hub, although it will be confined to being controlled from a single device via the Sengled Bluetooth app. You won’t get full functionality and participation in your Bluetooth mesh, nor will the strip serve as a mesh repeater without being added to Alexa via a hub.
Installation can be tricky; it will flex along the length, but it does not flex well side to side nor can tricks like creating a loop at the end allow it to fold. I may experiment with trimming away some of the silicon to try to curve and fold the stripe like one would with cheaper strips that are unsealed ribbons, or thinner silicon strips, but this strip cannot be to form a 90 degree angle to the side. Also, if you cut the strip, the only way to re-use the cut sections is to cut the silicone back away from the PCB to solder on to the pads. That’s pretty standard with these things. However I expect this LED strip to be very rugged.
The adhesive could be stronger; that’s always a weak point on LED strips. I’m probably going to resort to using RTV to improve adhesion to back of the television panel.
I am VERY pleased with this LED strip and am considering ordering more to put on the back of our other televisions.

Overall like these lights. Used them for my wife closet but she insnistwd on daylight 6400k color as specs state. Lights are not 6500k but mix one color of white with blue and red to make the shades of white like soft, warm and daylight. Only the soft white is full brightness. When you set to cool white the lumens is considerably decreased and blue comes on to create this color. Other than the false advertising on the white spectrum we decided to keep them as Alexa connection took on a few minutes and hardware was great. Plugs into AC power outlet and all pieces have 3am adhesive. Disappointed about the color only
Customer Questions & Answers
What is the effect of using this light strip?
Answer: The Bluetooth connection signal is more stable. Compatibility with alexa is a bright spot, because there are not many Bluetooth lights compatible with alexa, but the prices of philips and lifx are much higher than sengled.
What type 90?? corner adaptor can I use with this strip?
Answer: If your wanting to cut it and connect it to a corner connector, I don’t think you’ll find a connector to fit the strip. They have a thick waterproof coating making finding connectors hard. I gave up. The instructions do say the strip can’t be cut. They can but finding a connector is difficult.
does the product work with 220v?
Answer: Yes, it works with 100v-240v.
Do I need an Alexa?
Answer: You can connect if you have it, or you can use APP to control if you don’t.
