    Excellent Product, Major Improvement Over Previous Generation

    • Written by Hal B from Vancouver

    Lightstrip Plus is a welcomed upgrade over the previous lightstrips. The new version (plus version) does white light as well as colours. Users can also add extensions to the light strip that just plug into main strip. Strips may also be cut at specific locations to allow for shorter installations.

    I have used two sets of Lightstrip Plus to replace tube lighting in my living room and dining room that share a wall. I could have done this with a single Lightstrip Plus and added extensions but I wanted to be able to set the lighting differently in each room. These strips offer crisp bright white light, as well as the usual Hue colours.

    Good: Bright, good use of colours, matches existing Hue bulbs in colours and tones, easy installation, easy to add into Hue App. Works with Gen 1 hub (have not been able to purchase Gen 2 hub yet)

    Bad: LED lights are spaced out, so may need a diffuser to prevent lights reflecting off services such as windows or tiles. Adhesive on double sided tape weak is spots (not a problem for my installation), light strand can only do solid colours and not have a mix of colours at the same time,

    Bottom Line: Highly Recommended. Easy to install, great light, fun to play with. Excellent addition to my Hue lighting.

    Noteworthy: The LED strips come with a medium sized power plug as well as a small box closer to the LED strip. They have allowed for a long length of cable between the plug and the strip. For my installation this means I have to bundle up the cable and tether it out of the way as it's way too long. Before starting on your lighting project, make sure to take the long cord and power adaptors into consideration.
