Customer questions & answers
If you want to be able to control the lights from both the App and a physical switch, its certainly possible.
Or you could control it all from just the App.
Very nice RGB controller, just a few drawbacks
J. Morlock from Lexington, SC
first of all, this controller is very easy to install and use, and is very small so it can be tucked just about anywhere. I'm using it to control some RGB led strips on my boat and I installed it up under the helm.
The app is intuitive, and my only issue with it is that the effect speed and fade speed sliders are very touchy... So a little sliding of the bar can result in a huge effect change. It's just a bit difficult on a touchscreen to get exactly the effect you want, but it does work.
My only other complaint about this controller is there really is no power off memory, unlike what was stated in the Q and A section. I have the light box wired to an anti vandal switch, and when turning the switch of off and then back on, the controller will simply default to a single color for the LEDs; so if you have it set to an effect, it will not go back to that effect. If you turn the LEDs off using the app, then you can go back to the effect upon powering back on, but not if you use a switch to cut power all together.
I'm nitpicking a bit, and overall I would buy it again.
