Product Review - Spotlight on Govee RGBIC App-Controlled Striplights

At Govee, we offer a superior range of products that add energy to your day and we are on a mission to spread the word about our innovative striplights. They are unlike any other you’ll find on the market and offer features that you might not expect. This is thanks to our trademarked Independent Control Chip (IC) and our striplights offer functionality unlike anything else available. 

The IC allows multiple colors to be displayed on each section of the striplight tape simultaneously, with everything easily controlled via the Govee Home App. What’s more, they’re exclusive to us, so you simply won’t find them anywhere else. 

In this blog, we take a much closer look at different aspects of Govee RGBIC striplights, so that you know exactly what it is that makes them such a good purchase for the home. So, without further ado, let’s get started and see just how feature-packed our striplights are. 

Precise Control                                                                                                                                       

 The main thing that sets Govee RGBIC lights apart from other available options like standard RGB striplights is how quickly, easily and comprehensively controlled they are. This is thanks in part to the Gove Home App, which allows the user to select specific colors (from the 16 million available), as well as to change a variety of other settings via either WiFi or Bluetooth.

 Voice control is also possible when linking the lights to either Alexa or Google Assistant, meaning that you can have your hands completely free when you’re throwing a party! Standard RGB striplights have none of this functionality and can only display a single colour at any one time, so it’s difficult to even put them in the same category as each other.

 However, the hero of Govee RGBIC striplights is the trademarked Independent Control Chip which allows central control of all functions via the smartphone app. This exclusive component is the reason why elements like the Color Wheel and Music Mode are possible and why other striplights just can’t compete.


 One of the aforementioned functions that RGBIC striplights offer is one that relates to home security. Keeping burglars out of your home is that much more likely if you’re there and lighting goes a long way to creating that impression when you’re not.

 Using the app, you can set specific times for your striplights to turn on and off, making it seem like there are people inside. Of course, there are other technologies available that provide this function, however, they don’t tend to be able to offer stunning home lighting as well! 

Music Mode

 Now we come to one of the most fun functions that RGBIC striplights offer. Music mode is a function that makes the lights illuminate and ‘dance’ in time with whatever music is being played. What’s more, you don’t just get one color flashing in time with the music, as a disco-like effect is made possible thanks again to the IC chip controlling each segment of the striplight independently.

 It’s also possible to refine Music Mode in accordance with the type of music you’re listening to. If it’s a banging party that’s upbeat and lively, then you’ll want to select Dynamic Mode or if it’s a more civilized or sedate get-together you’ll be better off choosing the Mild Mode setting.

 This functionality turns ordinary striplights into something that also doubles as disco lighting and it will take your social gatherings to the next level. All this and it uses a minimum of power due to the eco-friendly LED bulbs inside.

 Ambient Lighting

 Another fantastic feature of Govee RGBIC striplights is the way that ambient lighting can be quickly and simply created to suit whatever it is you’re doing. Inside each set of lights, you’ll find premium bright 5050 LED lights, which means that you’ll get powerful illumination precisely when and where it’s needed.

 They’ve also been created using IP65 waterproof material that allows the striplights to be used outdoors to illuminate a garden party or a set of outdoor steps. So, if you’re planning a Halloween event at your home or you’re just relaxing after a long day at work, you have all you need to create the perfect ambience either indoors or out.

 Owners of Govee striplights are also able to enjoy a variety of settings to accompany the mood, such as Snowflake and Energetic. Candlelight can also be a great setting to use when planning a romantic night with your partner, as it provides an ambience that usually requires a whole box of candles to achieve.


Easy Installation                                                                                                                     

 There’s nothing worse than buying some tech that looks cool initially, but you later find out that you need a degree in electronics to install it. With Govee striplights, you’ll have no such problems, as they really are a cinch to put together and install.

 Inside each pack of lights, you’ll find an ‘All In One’ kit, complete with a UL-approved power adapter, 5 support clips, genuine 3M tape and, of course, the lights themselves. All you need to do to put them up is to stick them directly onto the appropriate clean, dry surface and you’re good to go!

 If you have any issues with your Govee striplights, you’re not on your own. That’s because at Govee, we provide support either through our FAQs section on our website or via email. You can talk to our support team by messaging us at


 When you look at all of the features we’ve spoken about here, it’s obvious that Govee RGBIC striplights are not like any others available on the market and they’re certainly a cut above the standard RGB variety. The IC chip that only Govee offers makes all of this possible, so if you want all this functionality instead of very limited ‘on/off’ features, it can only be Govee.

 If you’d like to know more about what we do at Govee and the technological innovations we offer for home security and home lighting, head over to our website and take a look around. There are many other types of striplight available online, but only ours offers a wealth of additional features beyond those you’d expect.

 We appreciate you taking the time out to read our blog. We hope that it has illustrated what the new minimum standard is when searching for high-quality striplighting. When looking for LED striplighting online for yourself, don’t expect anything less.

 We’ll be back soon with more tips, guidance and advice from the home of illumination innovation.
