Moreover, the light has predefined lighting scenes based on color and brightness and you can easily edit these and make your own from scratch.

Installation and performance
We had experimented with the whole installation process by ourselves. We chose to introduce the three lights in my patio greenhouse utilizing the included spikes. We picked this area in light of the fact that the nursery runs the length of our pool and we needed to enlighten both the greenhouse zone and the pool territory. Introducing the lights was simple: we appended the spikes to the base of each light and put them in the greenhouse; deliberately separating those 11 feet separated from one another with the goal that they would be shading our nursery divider and reflects off the water in our in-ground pool. We associated them to one another utilizing the power expansion links and the Y-formed connectors and associated the power block to the light that was nearest to our open-air GFCI electrical plug. When they were connected, the lights went ahead quickly and we start changing the point of everyone for the most extreme impact.
In case you’re searching for splendid lighting impacts, the Lily lights will probably better. Try not to misunderstand me, these lights give phenomenal hues and whites, however, they are intended for the vibe as opposed to enormous light, and in that capacity convey a delicate, loosened up lighting impact. We made our very own USA scene (red, white, and blue) and an Irish banner scene (green, white, and orange), yet especially enjoyed the manner in which the Savanna Sunset scene reflected off the pool water, giving it an orange shine that did surely look like the shade of a setting sun. The lights pursued our calendar as a matter of course and responded in a flash to on and off directions and shading changes utilizing the versatile application.
We experienced no difficulty controlling the lights utilizing Alexa voice directions. We made a room that we named Pool and had the option to turn the majority of the lights on and off without a moment’s delay or separately utilizing their particular names. We were likewise ready to change hues and diminish each light utilizing voice directions. Siri voice directions were similarly responsive. Our IFTTT applet to have the lights turn blue at whatever point there was a scoring update in a Yankees game additionally brought about the ideal result.
