No, Litcessory products do not affect the brightness of the lights. As long as your total lightstrip run length (lightstrip length plus any Litcessory product length) stays within 10 meters/33 feet, your lights will be just as bright!
Litcessory products are desiged specifically for Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus. Currently, Litcessory products have not been tested with other brands. However, our products are designed for 6-pin lightstrips that are 12mm in width.
We recommend keeping your total lightstrip run under 10 meters/33 feet. This includes the total length of your lightstrips and any Litcessory products and ethernet cables. Some customers have reported success going over this limit, however we have not tested this.
This happens most often when a 6-pin connector or lightstrip is plugged in upside down, causing something called reverse polarity. To fix this, simply flip over the connector or lightstrip and plug it in the other way.
No, Litcessory extension cables do not have any LED lights.
If your lights are not the right colors after connecting a cut-end connector, this means that the cut-end connector is not making a solid connection with the solder points on the lightstrips. Try the following:
Unplug the power source
Ensure the backside of the solder points (the side opposite of the LED lights) are making contact with the cut-end connector’s metal prongs, and that the cut-end of the lightstrip is fully inserted.
Close the lid of the cut-end connector and clamp down with a pair of pliers. Use plenty of pressure. You should hear a slight “snap”.
To ensure your cut-end connector stays tight, you can wrap the cut-end connector tightly with electrical tape.
If you are still having issues after trying the above steps, please contact our awesome support team. We are always happy to help!
To extend the distance between the controller and the lightstrip, you will first need to connect one of our Controller to 6-Pin Adapters. Then you can plug in an extension cable.
If you want to connect this product directly to the Philips Lightstrip Plus Controller, you MUST use the Litcessory Controller to 6-Pin Adapter to do so.
Male ends are removable, converting them to female.
Supports lightstrip runs up to 33 feet/10 meters (lightstrips and extension cables combined).
