LED Strip Lighting Installation
An LED strip light is actually a flexible circuit board that contains surface mounted LEDs and typically comes with adhesive backing for easier installation. LED strip lighting is ideal for backlighting, accent lighting, and decorative lighting. Advances in Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology has seen LED strip lights increase in brightness and quality, while LEDs are most recently used and deployed in task lighting. LED lighting is versatile, with millions of hues and color. Heilight Lighting installs patented RGB LED lighting solutions, our quality strip lighting installation ensures a durable and efficient lighting solution.
LED Strip Lighting Design
There are hundreds of variations in color, adhesives, water resistance, driving voltage, water resistance and choice of SMDs (Surface Mounted Diodes). Strip lighting can be coated or non-coated. The uncoated type is for installation in places where the lights may come into contact with a human touch. Coated strip lights are ideal for installing outdoors as they are waterproofed, and also have higher voltage making them brighter for outdoor use.
LED Strip lights are also either addressable or non-addressable:
- Single color non-addressable: The LEDs on this strip have single white color with 2700-6500 K color temperature and a single monochrome color of 400-700 nanometers wavelength.
- Multi-color addressable: The strip contains LEDS that can display multiple colors. However, all the LEDs display the same color at the same time.
- RGB Addressable: The LEDs on this strip are individually addressable meaning each can display different colors, or strobes apart from the other LEDs

Beam Angle LED Lights
The typical SDM is set at 120 degrees which is directed up meaning it comes off at a perpendicular angle to the mounting surface. Edge emitter or side view SMDs have the beam angle at 90 degrees to the surface, directed up which means the light washes on the surface. This way of setting the bean angle is mostly used in signage lights.
Dimming LED Lights
It is impossible to dim LED lights like in the way dimming is done in a conventional light by changing the external voltage. Instead, a device known as a Pulse Wave Modulation dimmer is used. This dimmer uses a complex formula to switch the LED on and off in varying durations such that the light coming off appears to dim or brighten.
Where To Install LED Lights
LED Strip lighting installation can be done pretty much anywhere as advances in this lighting technology has come up with strip lights suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. LED strip lights are very versatile and portable making them suitable for projects such as decorative wheel rims lights or holiday/Christmas lighting.
