Buying the lights is a great first step, but if you want to get the most out of any LED setup, a good controller is an essential piece to creating dazzling displays. Changing the color of your RGB LED light has never been easier! Even if you’re simply using a driver in order to power your lights, LED Controllers are must in order to utilize the full potential of the lighting setup. LED controllers put you in the driver’s seat. Dimmers allow you to control the intensity of the lights in your setup. They allow you to set the intensity of your display and by extension the surrounding environment. Whether you’re throwing a rager and need to push your lights to the limit, or creating a more subtle speak easy environment that makes people feel like they need to lean in close, dimmers allow for further customization within any lighting setup.
With RGB Controllers, you are the artist and the controller is your palette, so go crazy and brighten up the place. Create an ambiance that will have a lasting impact on those who see it, and make them eager to return for more. And when they do, the entire setup is capable of being transformed into something completely new with RGB technology. The only limit is your imagination. If the installation you are creating is using an RGB strip light longer than sixteen feet, be sure to get an RGB signal amplifier to amplify the color controlling signal for every sixteen foot section. LED Drivers are necessary component to make any LED setup work, and it is important to make sure that you are using a driver appropriate to your setup. It is important to calculate the total watts for your setup, and then choose a controller that is rated appropriately. In order to calculate the watts, simply figure out the total watts consumed by each piece in your display, then add them together. If you are working with spools, be sure to check whether the wattage is by the foot, and if so multiply the number of watts consumed by the total feet of LEDs used.
The Ambient Line of controllers is our newest set of controllers, that have great dimming, and a plethora of options from handheld remotes to smart hub capabilities.

Throughout the site, you will see the terms "Driver", "Controller", "Remote", "Receiver", and "Dimmer". Here's a quick guide to help you navigate through which does what. A Driver is term described to power an LED or LED Strip. Most common these are also synonymous with power supplies. It typically will take power from a wall and convert the power into a usable voltage to drive an LED Strip. Conversely, an LED Receiver or LED Dimmer is sometimes required if a driver is not capable of dimming on its own. These can sometimes be wall operated or with a physical handheld remote. A LED Controller or LED Remote is the point and shoot style dimming remote that is commonly used to dim an LED Strip. The LED Receiver is the receiving end of the remote which is used to convert the signal (typically RF, Wifi, Bluetooth, etc.) and translate that into something the LED needs to dim or change colors.
