I work remotely from my home. I get interrupted while I’m on conference calls all the time from my family. So I applied these under my door and I use an Eve Button on my desk to easily turn on the lights to let everyone know I’m on a call. Problem solved. These were so easy to set up and work so well, that I’m now dreaming up other ways I can use them in the house.

Here’s the thing: if you charge a premium price for a simple product, and you advertise that it’s ready to go – just peel and stick… and the whole POINT of the product is to stick it to something… then I’m not being petty when I say I expect it to actually stick! That’s not the case here. The adhesive holds for less than an hour. When I called into Sylvania, they simply did NOT care. I was told that they don’t make the adhesive, so it’s not their problem.
I countered that Honda doesn’t make the tires, but since they’re an important part of the new car doing what it’s bought to do… they replace tires that don’t hold air when a car is brand new. The woman I spoke with said she just didn’t care – go buy your own tape.
Unfortunately, I’m stuck with this junk, since I cut it to size, I can’t return it. It’s a first and last visit to the Sylvania brand for me, though. I am really astonished that someone selling premium HomeKit products has such a lack of care for the finished goods. Stay away… stay very far away…

For the under cabinet lighting, i??d like to use this and hard wire it to a switch. this way i can manually power it or use mac. can this be done?
The last thing I wanted to do to turn on and off my countertop lighting is to stop preparing food to go find my phone. Or go upstairs to my computer. I set mine up with a HomeKit switch. I have other counter lights in another house using SmartThings plug+button which is also voice controlled by Alexa. There is an impl??
how can you reset the older model (lightify) when paired with the Wink, not the Osram hub?
For ZigBee models paired to SmartThings or Wink, you can reset your flex strip by turning them on and off 5 times in a row with 5 seconds in between. This can be done using a standard wall switch or plugging/unplugging from the wall. For the HomeKit Bluetooth model (this listing), the same process will reset the flex s??
I know you can’t make these sync with music on the HomeKit app but is there an alternative app that allows you to sync them to flash with music?
Answer: None that I am aware of. Given that the app is barely functional to begin with and the HomeKit offers even less integration I??m guessing no.
