Worth the 70% off but I'd never pay full retail after seeing how half-baked the app is (and seems to have been for the past 5 years without smart home updates or integration.) the best i can hope for is finding a smart plug to turn these on and off at specific times. The only redeeming quality of this setup is that they retain their color sequence when powered off and back on.

My wife picked up a Starter kit last year on sale. So I only have 1 controller box with a single 25 light strand. -1 for the painful set up. Unlike most other "smart" peripherals' apps, this app does not handle connecting to your wifi. You have to change networks back and forth in your device's settings. I even had to go as far as enabling airplane mode, then turning wifi back on. -1... and that's generous.. for no scheduling feature. Otherwise its pretty nifty. 20 preset "functions", and a function to cycle thru 17 of them. You can adjust the speed of the functions. I didn't play much with the custom functions. Once you can get it working, its a nice step up from generic static or blinky lights. If I can get more on sale, I probably will.

Lights are expensive, but there aren't many options for app controlled RGB LED Christmas lights. If you're looking for lights that let you pick custom colors these are great. The lights can display up to 5 custom colors at once. There aren't many functions available for custom colors though. I have not had any connection issues. Colors are bright and vivid. Hoping to pick up more strands on sale. You can connect up to 12 on one controller box. App can control multiple boxes.
