TIME & MONEY SAVING ADVANTAGES:
If you are considering installing any type of lighting system, the first thing you need to do before beginning any project is take accurate and complete measurements of the entire roofline where you want permanent lighting installed. Keep an eye out for any areas that may require short, light runs of less than 6 feet or unlit jumps of less than 10 feet. To place any order accurately, it is important that you have compiled this information first so that you know the exact total length you need.
It will always be best to physically walk around the property and take accurate measurements of the entire perimeter, including gaps or jumps of unlit extensions to accents in the roofline, so you know exactly how many feet you need. However, for those of us that just need a rough estimate now, we highly recommend using the Streetview visuals and the 2D measuring tools built within Google Earth
We created a type of planning guide worksheet to help you with layout and design ideas, complete with an actual example layout drawing, in an effort to better inform you on how to best plan out your projects.
Once you have completed all your measuring and have a good idea of how you want the system to fit on your home or business, the next step is to order the parts needed. Currently, there is NO better way to begin this ordering process than to select one of our exclusive

TRUE Plug & Play
Pixel Lights use waterproof 4-pin aviation communication male-to-female connectors, so they only connect one-way with a simple insert + push, and thread together just like you would cable. With the power OFF, start at the controller box and screw Male plug into the controller. Pixel lights are marked on top of LED with an arrow. From then on, add lights as needed. Again, the ends of the wire will only connect one way. Anyone can do it.
A standard electrical outlet is all that's required to power the Pixel Lights Controller. Once you screw a light cable into one of the outputs on the controller, your system is ready to run. IMPORTANT! DO NOT connect cables while the power is on. Doing so has the potential to surge power to the LEDs, which could cause harm to them.
The controller has a preset pattern installed that is ready to run a test when you're ready. Just push the power button, and it changes the sequences. Since the Controller uses an app on your phone or tablet, you will need to download and install the Pixel Lights app from Google Play or the App Store to configure and communicate with your system. Many more options are also available on a computer. Download the controller manual here.
The Pixel Lights Controller 24V has two outputs. 90% of the installations will not need a splitter. However, if one is needed, we have you covered.
A splitter is used to branch off and go to a dormer or high peak. The splitter allows the main light wires to continue in a straight line. With the two outlets on top of the box, you can go in two different directions. Simply screw the connectors together to create a waterproof seal. Splicing, soldering, taping, or heat shrinking are not required.
