After adding more car ambient lighting, I wanted to add some ambient lighting in my home so I bought RGB LED Light Strip -50 ft ( iVAOOZE ) $38 ( https://amzn.to/36YA9CI ) to test out, unbox and review.

For home improvement, lighting, vlogging, and gift ideas, check out my Amazon list.
The 50 feet 12volt RGB led lighting strip is powered by large AC adapter. There are 3 rolls of 16 feet led lighting which can be chained together. It is controlled by a small controller and power splitter that has microphone for lighting effects that changes with music beats.
The controller also saves the last programmed function and settings. You can program it with the IR remote or with the app on a smart phone via Bluetooth. I programmed mine to be scheduled to run during night hours with an amber white light glow for my couch. I experimented with adding it to my stairway handles and closet.
After programming, I no longer needed the application on my phone and removed it. The controller still can get signals from the IR remote when its ON. For my controller, when its set to be scheduled to a certain time, it SOMETIMES locks out the IR remote.
This can be good and bad. The good is that no one can change it later and mess up your settings. The bad I will need to use the smartphone app to change the program. and it was not consistent with the IR remote control override lock out.
- Easy setup with 3 rolls of 16 ft RGB LED lighting.
- Can be daisy chained
- Good mood ambient lighting
- AC powered
- IR remote control has many control options ( timed on/off, lighting color and fade effects, light levels, and music beat effects.
- Advanced programming can be done via Bluetooth with their smart phone App: Scheduled on / off time, RGB light levels and settings, music beat control from phone, via APP. Once programmed the controller keeps the setting.
- Only one programable controller in package ( You will need to buy another kit if you want light in a different room grouping).
- No IR remote reset button for advanced programming – you need to use their app to update.
- Inconsistent override with IR remote.
Overall this kit is fun and simple to experiment with and has potential for future DIY projects by cutting up and soldering the cable later. If you are planning to make a whole room or area one lighting setting this will work. If you want to add different colors and lighting scenes, you will need multiple kits or more advanced kits with different scenes. There are also other LED RGB strip lights that work off of Wifi and smart assistants ( https://amzn.to/2H5WYcD ).
