Hi 

 

Is it possible to use this led strip in a place where there is no WI-FI, maybe 4G/5G but not guaranteed? 

 

I would like to create 3 DJ tables with their own led strip and their own configuration but I'm not sure that we will have a Wi-Fi access everywhere we go... 

 

Regards,

 

Dimitri

Hi    @dvdbremt 

I'm afraid the smart strip need to link a Wi-Fi network ( 2.4Ghz secured wifi network : a wifi router recommended, hotspot wifi could be unstable) before it shows up in the APP and being managed. You may need some pocket wifi router if o use the smart light strip.

  @Solla-topee

Hi

 

I've purchased three L900-5 light strips for my kitchen. They seem to work really well and are great value for money!. I have one major problem though:

 

  • I understand how to edit a preset to a custom color using the color wheel, and I see the RGB hex value generated from the color wheel when doing so.
  • However, I want exactly the same custom color preset on each of the three light strips.
  • I could do this if there was a way to manually set the RGB Hex values but there doesn't appear to be a way of doing this - am I missing something?

 

Unfortunately, I've found trying to replicate the same RGB Hex value on a preset using the Tapo app color wheel impossible.

 

Any guidance greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Con

  @CJ64 Hello Con, 

Thank you for the feedback, it seems that selecting the same color value for all power strips is not that easy now, so far we will need to move the finger in the area of the color wheel for until a specific color value or select the available 5 colors below wheel panel in Preset.

 

It is welcome to leave this improvement in Tapo Feature Request Board so users could comment and vote(thumb-up)for it, this helps to organize your ideas all together and share with our team later.

  @Solla-topee 

Can the kl430 led strip also be switched on and off with a conventional wall switch without necessarily using the app or the integrated controller box?

  @mrcpiccolo Thank you for being interested with power strip, as tapo or kasa power strip use its own power adapter, I'm afaid we can't make an automation between smart power strip with non- smart / conventional switch. You could set schedule for power strips and turn then ON/ OFF at certain time or use Alexa/ Google voice command to turn it on.

  @awinterstale97 Hello, 

Thank you for asking, as the note on the User Guide on the website, ' Once cut, it cannot be reattached.' , this means other part (not the part connected to controller) is not usable and can not use a power controller after it was cut.

If the power controller is faulty, you could reach our local technical support and to and see if your area could do part RMA and get the power controller replaced. 

Hope this helps.

  @Solla-topee 

Anybody tried to connect 2 or more L920-5 strips together as one? I mean with one controller and additional power each 5 meters directly on strip, or by software with individual controllers. I`ll try next week when they come, but i was curious if somebody already try.

Also, i need an user to check if Light Strip Length in the settings of the app for L920 can be set to higher values than 10 m (12 m).

Thank you.

  @Solla-topee So, i cant make the setup for more than 5 meters just because software is limited. Il have to put them in paralel to control 3 strips in the same time. I need to make some modification to connect power to each strip separate but that is easy.

The problem is that i cant activate the effects via google assistant, just colors and level. What vocal commands to use to activate custom or preset effects?

Thanks
