Govee’s brand-new Glide Wall light is an economical alternative if you’re searching for a fairly priced set of RGB lights. The $104 Glide wall is basically an LED strip locked inside 6 connectable plastic bar real estates and one curved port with a clear front.
Installing the lights took hardly 10- minutes. While the procedure isn’t prolonged, you still need to be additional mindful when snapping together the light bars’ various adapters. The plastic quality isn’t state-of-the-art and connecting various bars took rather a bit of force. I handled not to break mine, however I picture connecting the bars awkwardly might lead to damage.
On the other hand, the setup experience is a breeze post-assembly. Each light bar includes a strong 3M adhesive tape and a velcro strip. You just choose where you wish to establish the lights, and the rest is as simple as sticking and holding them in location. I finished the assembly alone, though it would be smart to take somebody’s aid.
I chose to connect mine left wing of my gaming/work-from-home rig, describing my desktop case and the nearby window frame to revive the setup. Other areas, consisting of the wall behind your screen, TELEVISION, above your bed’s frame, above or next to a door, are all outstanding places.
Once installed or positioned, the light bars link to a control box, which is then powered by a power adapter. The control box’s main functions are to get signals from your phone and to listen to noises with its integrated microphone to support Govee’s ‘Music Mode,’ so it’s a good idea to position it someplace with less outside sound.
This implies that if you put the control box near where you’ll be sitting, whatever noises you make will hinder the Music Mode’s light program.
Once established and plugged in, the Govee Glide will illuminate quickly, however you’ll wish to go directly to the Govee Home app on either iOS or Android to include them to your house network and gain access to a lot of scenes and settings, comparable to the business’s Flow Pro and Lyra lights
Navigating such apps and checking out all the adjustable alternatives for the very first time is an amazing experience and never ever stops working to bring a broad smile to my face.
The Govee Home app offers total control over the lights with various modes, consisting of ‘Music,’ ‘Colour,’ Scenes’ and DIY.
Remember the control box I discussed previously in concerns to the Music Mode? The Govee Home app enables you to change in between syncing music or audio hints utilizing the Control Box’s microphone or the microphone on your phone. Whatever mic you pick to sync the audio with, it works completely, and unlike the Govee Flow Pro Light Bars, the Glide had no visible hold-up.
I advise you utilize this mode just when listening to music, as it was a big diversion while enjoying films. Oh, and, if you’re playing video games and utilize a mechanical keyboard, it’s an excellent concept to have Music Mode off, otherwise, finest of luck preventing sensation lightheaded.
The app’s Colour Mode enables you to set differing colours to each of the 3 configurable areas per bar, with additional brightness and light tone choices.
Following that is a Scene Mode, that includes 35 pre-configured scenes that stimulate the lights in different methods, such as ‘Leisure,’ ‘Night Light,’ ‘Candle Light,’ ‘Fireworks’ and much more, permitting you to set the state of mind of the space with scenes like ‘Christmas,’ ‘Halloween,’ ‘Birthday’ and ‘Valentines Day’ for those unique events.
Even though the Glide is RGBIC and not RGBW, they still use strong brilliant white colour alternatives, comparable to a standard fluorescent tube light that can brighten your complete space.
Lastly, The DIY area of the app permits you to develop your own special shareable presets, and download Scenes produced by other users.
Unlike the Govee Flow Pro Light Bars, which I would just utilize while seeing motion pictures, the Glide lights typically remain on throughout the day, with various modes depending upon my state of mind. When declined to one percent brightness or with the ‘Night Light’ predetermined, they likewise work terrific as night lights.
Apart from the reality that snapping together the light bars throughout the preliminary setup was difficult, I have no problems about the Govee Glide Wall Lights as they adequately illuminate my space, modification colours efficiently, appear like one strong system rather of 6 interconnected pieces, and are completely responsive to modifications made on the app.
I altered modes and scenes from 2 spaces away, despite the fact that the Control Box is concealed away in a corner, suggesting that it has a strong signal and having voice assistant compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant is constantly a reward.
The app itself is simple to utilize and does not have any obvious problems or bugs, though it may take you a while to find all the controls and choices it needs to use.
At a competitive rate point of $104, the Govee Glide Wall Light is a strong purchase if you’re seeking to– actually– cheer up your setup.
