Find light emitting diodes, or LEDs, in a variety of devices such as digital clocks, backlighting of computer and television screens, sensors and calculators. Strip lighting with LEDs provides an energy-efficient way to create a mood or accent in any area. Choose from a variety of several types of LED strip lights to match your decor.

Flexible and Rigid Strips

Find LEDs embedded in flexible strips, such as ribbons or rope, which is cut to specified lengths and used for decorative or frame lighting. Buy LEDs affixed to rigid strips or tubes for decorative or under-the-counter lighting.

Waterproof Strips

Purchase waterproof, weatherproof and submersible LED strips. Similar to regular LED light strips, except for the addition of a waterproofing agent such as a silicon rubber sheath, install them along wet locations such as pool decks, fountains and ship railings as both accent and primary lighting.

Colour Changing

For speciality accents, install colour-changing LED strips. Choose between red, green or blue in many different combinations of colour and brightness. Colour controllers provide customers with a number of creative options. Create different flickering speeds and colour pattern combinations for retail window displays.

Dimmable LED Strips

Many types of LED strip lights are adjustable with the use of a dimmer switch. Since not all LED strips lights are adjustable, be sure to purchase a strip that is, if you wish to have this option.
