Part 1: RGB strips vs RGBIC strips

In this section, we will explore the differences between RGB and RGBIC strips.

RGB strips:

RGB strips are based on three basic colors – red, green and blue – and are mixed to create a variety of colors by adjusting the brightness of each color. It is a common type of LED strip suitable for many applications such as backlit wall panels, wall mounted downlights, bathroom showers, bed frame headboards and decorative drawers.

With just one controller or remote control, you can easily adjust the colour, brightness and mode of the RGB strip to add a unique ambience to your space.

RGBIC strips:

The RGBIC strip is an upgraded version of the RGB strip. It features individual controls on each LED chip, allowing you to control the colour and brightness of each LED more precisely. This gives the RGBIC strip an edge in creating more complex light effects and animations. Ideal for highlighting artwork, adding stairs, fading dark corners, decorating living rooms and enhancing your wardrobe, among other scenes. For precise control, you may need more advanced controllers or software.
