Permanent LED Christmas Lights
With over 16 million hues and colours, LED lighting makes perfect shimmering and glowing Christmas lights. The good thing is that LED lighting has become cheaper while quality and variety has improved. Installing extensive Christmas lights and taking them down after the festivities every year is a bit tedious. But what if you can install permanent LED Christmas lights? Heilight installs year-round strip lighting that is a festive decorative lighting alternative and a permanent exterior lighting system. At Heilight our LED RGB lighting system is installed below the fascia of the home and is nearly invisible to the naked eye.

- Capacitor: You need one per power supply with a rating of 1000 uF electrolytic
- 300-500 Ohm resistor
- Power supply: You will need 1 power supply per 150 LEDs. Power should be rated 10 Amps 5 Volts.

Planning & Wiring LED Lighting
You will have to consider roof repairing needs like painting, and troubleshooting of the LED strips. It is advisable to use one strip per each section of a roof line. The data line has to be in one continuous loop for the digital commands to pass uninterrupted.
Mounting LED Lighting
To mount the permanent LED Christmas lights, our team at Heilight attach the strips to the eaves or fascia using an adhesive strip or direct installation. This makes it easier to take down the strips for troubleshooting or to access the roof section, our lights are designed and installed to be a long-lasting and maintenance free solution. In certain cases, we use plastic molding to give the strips some rigidity. Our team ensures the lighting is waterproof and weatherproof.
Programming LED Lighting
You can use the Android & IOS app available to control the lighting system on demand. The easy to use app allows you to change, control and illuminate your home at any time.
