PixelLights are the easiest permanent LED lighting system on the market for any home owner to put together. Connecting the LED light runs together has never been faster, safer, or easier, and they can only be connected one way, saving you massive time and money. This helps to reduce mistakes and connectivity headaches that come with other systems. Simply plug the ends together and thread them into each other to give a high-quality waterproof seal, and you're done. Move on to the next one.
It's Really That Simple!

FIRST STEP

TO EXTERIOR LED LIGHTING

Measure Plan & Design

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.

+ MEASURE

Project Measurements

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

+ PLAN & DESIGN

Design the System

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.

BEST PERMANENT HOLIDAY LED SOLUTION

PROFESSIONAL GRADE

YOU KNOW IT WHEN YOU SEE IT!

Once you hold the LED cables in your hands, the quality of PixelLights becomes crystal clear.

ANY COMBINATIONS OF THESE 3 CABLES WILL EQUAL YOUR ROOF LINE DIMENSIONS

PixelLights Controller

WiFi + POWER IN ONE

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 outlets on the controller, your system is ready to run. IMPORTANT! DO NOT connect cables while the power is on. Doing so has the potential of surging 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.

Your lights are installed and now your ready to turn on your lights. Plug in lights to controllell The first step to installing your system is to link your network bridge to your home Wi-Fi network. You can download the complete instructions below, but a few things to note:


- The Wi-Fi network you choose must be a 2.4 GHz network. 

- Pick a network that has a consistently strong signal wherever you are installing your bridge.

- Make sure your mobile device is on the same network you assign to your network bridge anytime you want to control the lights.

- To hang the bridge on the wall, place a piece of layout tape on the wall and drill two holes six inches apart with the included drill bits. Insert the drywall anchors and mount the bridge.

Tools Needed

The Starter Kits comes with all the materials you need to get your lights going, but there are a few tools you will need:

  • Cordless Drill – Use to relocate light holes if needed. Simply screw channel to existing areas on home.
  • Screwdriver – Only needed to pry to make space to install channel.
  • Tin snips - to trim channel for angle cuts and finish the ends.
  • Ladder – Needed to reach the roof line. Please use common sense and think safety first when ever you are elevated above ground.

LADDER  SAFETY FIRST: This PixelLights  system requires the use of ladders and that you be up on the roof elevated off the ground to install. It is extremely important that you read all instructions, warnings, and safety precaution labels that come standard on all ladders. Failure to do so, can result in critical injuries and possible death. Therefore if you are afraid of heights, unbalanced, or unsure of your personal abilities while using ladders, we highly recommend you hire someone instead of trying to install these yourself.

Connecting Light Cables

DIRECTION OF LIGHTS MATTER (IN/OUT)

TRUE Plug & Play

Pixel Lights use a waterproof 4 pin aviation male to female connection, 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 controller. Pixel lights are marked on top of LED with an arrow on it. From then on add Lights as needed.  Again, the ends of the wire will only connect one-way. Anyone can do it.

Terminating a run of lights is easy, simply screw cap to the end of the LED Light cables. Cap is provide in starter kit for one run.

PixelLights Splitter

DIRECTION OF LIGHTS MATTER (IN/OUT)

Because the PixelLights Controller has duel 24v outputs. 90% of the installs will not need a splitter. However, if one is needed, we have you covered.


A splitter is used to create a Y (branch off) to reach a dormer or go to high peaks. The splitter allows the main light wires to continue in a straight line. With the two outlets provided on top of box allows you to go in two different areas or directions.  Just screw connectors together for waterproof seal. No Splicing, No Soldering, No Taping, or Heat Shrink needed.

IMPORTANT! When using a splitter you must configure the proper LED count per output. This is done by setting the small switches on the circuit board in the correct position.

The Splitter guide will help you figure out the proper settings.

Connecting Light Cables

SO EASY ANYONE CAN DO IT

Again, the ends of the wire will only connect one way. Anyone can do it.
