Customisation at Its Best:

Flexibility is the hallmark of the LED Strip T1. Spanning 2 meters in length, it’s expandable using the 1-meter Extension Kit to a maximum length of 10 meters. At 20-centimetre intervals, the light strip is customisable to suit various spaces. Plus, it’s not just about length – the RGB effects are independently addressable, displaying up to 10 different colours with dimming and other captivating effects.

The cut or unused part of the lightstrip can also be reattached to a separate Aqara LED lightstrip using extra standard 5-core ribbon cables and 5-pin connectors.

Smart Scenes and Beyond:

Imagine enhancing your home’s security alert system with the LED Strip T1’s dynamic colour options. Different colours and effects could signify whether your security is armed or warn of any potential threats. Personalised home scenes come alive as well, such as an inviting evening ambiance or a cinematic setting for movie nights. Thanks to a recent Aqara Home app update, scenes can now be synced to HomeKit, allowing seamless control across third-party apps like Apple Home, Alexa, and Google Home.
