Get Colorful with LED Lighting
New developments in LED bulbs make them an exciting, easy-to-use option for lighting up your decor and adding stunning backdrops to indoor and outdoor spaces. Many of these systems allow you to control the brightness and color remotely through your home’s smart automation hub.
With the holidays coming up, this is the perfect time to enhance the lighting in your home, restaurant, nightclub, arena, sports field or other venues with colored LED lighting.
LEDs Make Color Easy
LED color lighting systems allow you to create endless color effects depending on the type of lighting fixture you use and any special effects you add. You can dim the lights, flash them or fade them as easily as flipping one or two switches or better yet – dialing in a specific color with your smartphone.
Multi-Color RGB LED Strips
You might see LED lighting systems that list themselves as “RGB.” RGB stands for red, green and blue. You can create a full-color spectrum by mixing these colors.
Try adding colored LED strips to your stairways, under kitchen cabinets, across the top of artwork, along with your work desk or on your windowsills. You can use them to decorate for the holidays, game day or just to keep a touch of color every day.
