I absolutely love these strip lights! They have survived Arizonas harsh elements. Be advised that I have them installed outdoors but under an eve where they do NOT get wet or the sun shines on them. The capabilities are awesome and its functionalities are even better! Govee allows its users to customize and create your own unique lighting effects with the Govee Home Application. Your mind and creativity really allow you to make some very incredible and eye catching effects. Many of my neighbors love them and have actually asked how they work and how I am able to customize the effects. Instead of telling them, I just show them how easy it is to do. One of my neighbors has similar lights but his are more "high end" so to speak. He owns the Phillips Hue lights and can do only simple adjustments where with Govee, you can do anything your mind can come up with. I gladly demoed him what some of its functions and capabilities were and he fell in love. He is an Engineer for an data communications company so he is rather good at tinkering with stuff. We both agreed that he needs to purchase a set to start crossing over to the more affordable, better performing, and limitless ways these lights are able to be incorporated into practically anything. For the price point of these lights compared to the Phillips Hue, it is a no brainer that Govee is the better buy. Not many know about Govee as it is a rather new company that doesn't market like other companies. Instead they do business differently. They are able to stay in business by word of mouth. What I mean by that is pretty much like what I just explained with my neighbor. Once someone sees what these lights are capable of and the applications diversity and functions. Everyone typically asks me for information on the company and where they can buy them. Now, Govee is getting more known as they are now selling their products in The Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc. When I purchased my first set, I had found them on Amazon. I was looking for a great led at a reasonable cost. I didn't know much about Govee back then as they were new to the market. I decided to give them a try and let me tell you, I am so glad that I did! I haven't had any bad experiences with the company whatsoever. In fact, if anything, I've had a great experience with them. I only reached out to them one time. I explained to them that my rgb strip stopped working and would just end up kind of flashing (not working properly). I did some diagnostics on the power adapter and expected that to be the culprit. I thought they would send me a new adapter for cheap as it was outside of the warranty period (I had them new in box for a long time before I installed them). The customer service representative told me to be expecting a package within the week. I said ok thank you. I didn't expect them to replace the whole strip and send a new power adapter! That right there made me an even bigger fan of the company. I would have been satisfied with a small cost out of my pocket for a replacement adapter, instead they sent me a whole new replacement. That is beyond exceptional customer service to me! This is the kind of company that many should be like. They truly back their products 110%. GOVEE has one thing in mind and it is the consumer! I can tell you this because I know first hand. I have had the opportunity to be a co-creator with some of their products. I have helped co-create a couple of products and they take information given by the testers and brainstorm ways to make it that much better. If my review hasn't convinced you that you need to own something Govee, then I don't know what planet you are from. I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed!
