I ordered the longer string after having seen the distance between the bulbs. This way, I could go the length I needed, and then come back with a string of bulbs in between, which is the way they should have been made anyways. Each string should have double the amount of bulbs that it currently has. This would give brighter light. They are definitely not as bright as clear bulbs, but having them doubled up, they are just enough at full bright setting.
The scenes are pretty cool, but go move fast from color to color, I wish the application could be updated to control the speed of each scene independently.
Being able to setup times to turn them on/off is good, however, there is no way to select the scene you want when they come on, they will come on with whatever was last set. VERY annoying, and makes it somewhat useless, unless you always use the same scene. This should definitely be fixed also.
The plug not being weather proof is annoying, luckily mine is for a covered patio, so it is easy enough to deal with, but why make the everything but the plug water proof? Doesn't make a lot of sense.
The music setting doesn't work well, you can't setup you phone for the lights to go to the music, and have the music play on the phone, since it uses the mic on the phone, very few lights light up. If you speak near the phone you see a lot more lights start to light up, and this is while the music is playing. If you have an external speaker, it works better, but really, these lights just can't do the job, so if you want it for that feature, look else where.
For the price, not sure it is really worth it, will probably send back. I'm looking for something that will light up the patio, and to have to double up string of lights to get the brightness, just don't think it is worth the price when there are less expensive products that have more lights per foot.
The app was easy to set up and has a lot of great features for changing individual lights or the whole string. Timers and schedules are nice too. The lights should definitely be hung on a line and don't "clip" on to anything. There isn't enough weight to the bulb to for all of them to hang straight down and depending on how you sting them you could end up with some pointing sideway. Overall I look forward to seeing what else they'll do and how they hold up in weather.
Govee RGBWW Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Outdoor Bulb String Lights (48ft & 96ft)
Of course when your excited about something, shipping always has to destroy it. However, after getting the lights and seeing many bulbs were smashed or just not working I contacted Govee. Replacement on the way withing a few hours just from on the app texting and not even a call. Let me say though, for the lights on my string that did work, they are great. True whites and great effects. If your someone good at making DIYs this will be great too since you can program each light separately and that make for a great vibe in the backyard. Absolutely recommend this product or any Govee. If you dont get from Govee your just going to give yourself headaches.
I bought these to replace a smaller set that failed. The mounting hooks and wiring aren’t nearly as robust as my old set. These seem somewhat dimmer as well. Wish I had my old set back.
