This smart lighting device is easy to use and install — and costs 50% less than competitors!

I’ve been working from home exclusively since September 2020. Fortunately, we have enough space in our home for me to have a dedicated space for my home office. Not only do I have a full-time job during the day as a Marketing Director, but I also write product reviews for MacSources in the evenings. So, having a space where I can make my own helps me be creative. I can surround myself with things I love and that inspire me. I never thought I would add RGB lighting into my space, but as it turns out, I really enjoy having strategically placed colored lighting as long as it’s subtle. I especially appreciate smart lighting or lights that are app-controlled. So, it was an easy decision to add the LED Ambient Light Bars With Smart Lighting from Up Tech Instruments.


The LED Ambient Light Bars With Smart Lighting provides bright, colorful lighting paired with smart features and control. The light bars offer a wide spectrum of colors and a number of different settings to work with. The bars come pre-programmed with 12 light shows, 10 ambient background modes, and 4 music modes. The lights are reactive to music and voice and users have control over the lights’ sensitivity, style, and tempo to sound they detect. The light bars can be controlled through the smartphone app or via their remote control.

Users have the option of setting up unique lighting effects through the app (DIY modes). DIY mode offers pinpoint control of the color, brightness, and activation sequence within the fifteen segments of each bar. The lights are designed to be easy to work with, install, and set up. Each bar has the option to be placed vertically or horizontally using their stands — or even mounted using the provided adhesive strips. The light bars are great for decoration, entertainment, or simple ambient lighting.
