Got my 32 ft of Wyze Strip Pro today. I immediately went to work getting to know it.
Mini-Review: Love the lights… I’m currently using them to make a Cloud-Christmas Tree on a Wal-Mart lamp w/a Color Bulb on top. Basically…the cloud ceiling w/LED thing on Tik-Tok… but on a lamp. The lights are installed and I’ve run them through a bunch of tests with music (that’s my favorite mode by far… see complaint below). The different effects and colors are beautiful and it does react to the music very very well. Overall… I’m VERY happy with my $41 purchase. The epoxy coating really helps when handling them. They don’t feel cheap at all. Note… they are TWO - 16 ft segments. Split in the middle by the controller… the controller has accounted for this, by controlling how it can control light direction (backwards, forwards, split, very impressive feature to do that). You will have to account for that in your physical placement though.
Wishlist: Please put an “always on” feature for all the cool effects… instead of “music-activated-only”. I feel like that limits the strip. It does pick up a lot of sound so it seems to keep moving but I don’t know that for sure yet.
Also, Rules… Wyze, you know your rules need improved… let me do more than turn it on or off… at least let me use a Scene that is programmed to be a “Marquee” on the Light Strip Pro… The same complaint goes for the Color Bulbs… Please allow for Scenes in the Rules.
And 1 more complaint… change the grouping the in the app from “Devices” to “Rooms”. It makes more sense to control a Room in a smart home than a series of devices. My app screen looks like Radio Shack 2021 exploded on there…
Overall, the light strips are totally worth it and I have immediately absorbed them into my personal Wyze EcoSystem. A+ I look forward to new features!
