Twinkly App-Controlled LED Curtain Lights

A whopping 400 LEDs are included in these smart curtain lights from VanthyLit, and 18 different color modes. Fully controllable via the Smart Life app, or with the separate remote control, you can tailor your room to suit any occasion. Voice control is also available.

The 18 preset programs include, amongst others: Halloween, Love, and Flag. These can of course all be tweaked, dimmers can be employed, or you can turn the brightness all the way up if you prefer. You can set lighting schedules with the timer function as well.

Scheduling is a cinch thanks to the Smart Life app and you can of course alter your light patterns to match the event, or to suit your ever-changing moods. The LED beads are bigger and brighter than others so you can expect a level of intensity that other curtain lights might not match.

Eambrite Fairy Curtain Lights

Cheap and cheerful would be one way to describe these budget-priced smart curtain lights from VagaryLight. This is by no means intended to be a slight on their quality, but rather to highlight that their functionality is somewhat limited compared to some other types of curtain lights.

As with some other models, smart control is provided courtesy of the Smart Life app, and voice control commands can be made with Alexa or Google Assistant. Timer functions are available and thanks to IP44 waterproofing, these can be displayed outside as well as inside.

The difference here is in the number of light patterns available. There are only eight light modes available here and the number of colors at your disposal is significantly reduced too. You won’t be able to choose any preset character animations, or draw transmittable patterns across your phone’s screen, either.

These are good quality smart curtain lights, albeit without some of the trimmings that we may have come to expect from certain seasonal festivities. With that said, these VagaryLight smart curtain lights still have the power to dazzle party guests and bring the room to life with an exciting atmosphere.

For anyone on a budget that still wants to push the envelope for their home parties, these VagaryLight curtain lights are a more than decent option for you to consider.

FAQ

Q: How Does a Curtain Light Work?

The curtain light consists of two parts: a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter contains multiple LEDs that send pulses of infrared light to the receiver. The pulses emit in sequence, such as from top to bottom, and each pulse releases at a specific frequency.

Q: Will LED Curtain Lights Catch Fire?

LED lights are low risk and do not get hot enough to start a fire.

Incandescent lights do get warmer than LED lights, but it is still rare that they would get to warm enough to cause a fire. Most of the time, your fairy lights are totally safe to leave on since they will not get hot enough to start a fire on their own.

Q: Do LED Curtain Lights Use a Lot of Electricity?

LED rope lights consume approximately one watt per foot of lighting. In contrast, an incandescent rope light uses three watts per foot.

LED rope lights also have longer working lives, roughly four times the life span of their incandescent counterparts.
