Chapter 4: Market Trend
According to the analysis, the future global intelligent lighting industry will present the following four development trends.
First of all, brand integration will be a major development trend of intelligent lighting. The greatest advantage of concentrating products of different brands on one platform is that the best products of different brands can be concentrated in one project, so as to improve the intellectualization of home. In fact, there are many kinds of lighting products on the market. It is unrealistic to require that all the equipment are made by the same manufacturer or that a system can only be matched with all the products of the same manufacturer.
Outdoor Smart Light connect with Smart Speaker Devices
Moreover, customers lack autonomy in terms of performance and price — either fully accept it or abandon it altogether. Unified control platform can take into account the interests of all parties, customers can choose any product, as long as it meets the performance requirements, so customers will have a great initiative in the budget.
Secondly, in the future, the development of intelligent lighting will shift from pure intelligent function to intelligent lighting which pays more attention to human behavior. Based on the research of human behavior, visual efficacy and visual physiology and psychology, developing more scientific and people-oriented intelligent lighting products with high efficiency, comfort and health will be the future direction of lighting technology development.
Third, the development trend of personalized lighting. The combination of intelligent technology and lighting makes lighting meet the lighting needs of different individuals and groups at different levels. It is an indispensable technical means for lighting from meeting the needs of ordinary people to meeting the needs of individuals and individuals. Therefore, personalized development should also be a trend for intelligent lighting development.
Finally, the development trend of technology convergence. The combination of intelligent technology and electronic ballast and other new lighting sources and lighting technology will build a brand-new lighting technology platform. Its application fields, from smart home lighting to intelligent urban lighting, have infinite prospects and are creating a brand-new lighting culture with high technology and high scientific content.

Chapter 6: Frequently asked questions and answers.
Question 1: where to cut led strip light?
Answer: When cutting LED Strip Light it is very important to cut only on the given cut line between the copper dots. Cutting through or before the copper dots will result in no electrical conductivity to the following section. Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut the LED Strip Light directly down the given cut line.
Question 2: How to install Strip Light?
Step 1: Double check your lights before cutting or installing
When installing LED strip lighting under your counters, cabinets, or inside coves, it is very important that you test the LED lights before any installation. Follow the steps below before you cut any of the lights or attach them to any surface.
1. Lay out all the products to create a mock installation to make sure you have all the supplies necessary
2. Unroll the LED strip lights from the plastic reel
3. Attach the uncut lights to the power supply and turn on the power supply
4. The strips should light up. If they do not, please check your connections
5. Ask yourself – “Are these bright enough?”, “Will I need a dimmer”, “Is the color perfect for my application?”, “Are all the LEDs lighting up and functioning properly?”
When the lights are functioning properly and you are sure you have selected the correct color temperature and brightness for your project, proceed to step two. If they are not functioning as expected, there is usually a simple connection error. We are here at every step of the way for you to answer any questions.
Step 2: Take Measurements and Make Cuts
Before starting any of the installation processes, take careful measurements to determine how many feet of strips will be necessary. Then cut the strips to length with sharp scissors in order to prepare them for the quick installation process ahead.
Note: LED strips can only be cut along the clearly marked lines that are evenly spaced.
Step 3: Preparing the Strip-to-Power Connection
To attach the first section of lights into the dimmer and power supply, we need to add some length of low voltage extension wire to the end of the first run of LED lights.
Once the low voltage wire is cut to length, strip an inch of wire insulation from the wires coming off the end of the LED strip and the low voltage extension. From there, wrap the exposed wires of the positive/negative cables together, using wire nuts to secure the connection
Step 4: Connecting two lengths of LED strips with strip-to-strip connector
In the final photo of the completed installation, you will notice a 90-degree angle at the corner of the bar. To go around this corner, we had to connect the two cut sections of LED strip lights. To do this, we used a strip-to-strip solderless connector to connect the first run of lights to the second.
The next step is to attach the solderless connector to the LED strip. To do that just peel back a half inch of the tape cover and the 3M tape on the back, exposing enough space for a connection.
Take the solderless connector and pull out the mounting tray to prepare for attachment. Each solderless connector has two sides. To make sure you have it arranged correctly, ensure that the wider of the white sides faces upward.
Next, GENTLY secure the locking tray back in place over the end of the flexible LED strip. Be gentle and make sure the mounting tray is securely closed, or the lights will not work. Find the positive (+) and negative (-) sides that are marked on the LED strip and note which wires coming off the solderless connectors will carry the negative and positive charges.
Repeat the process to attach the other end of the strip-to-strip connector to the second run of lights.
*NOTE: Red and black wire colors are not always correct indicators of positive and negative. Please look for the positive and negative markings on the strip and associate the wire on that side of the strip to indicate polarity.
Step 5: Combining strips with Strip-to-Strip “no wire” connectors
For runs longer than 16 feet, we need to connect two separate runs of LED strips. There is no for wire in the middle of the connectors, as we wanted the transition seamless, so we used strip-to-strip (“no wire”) connectors to combine the two lengths.
First, cut the strip at a designated line. Peel back the cover as you did to attach the strip-to-strip connector in step 4. Then clip into place the two lengths of strips using the strip-to-strip “no wire” connector, again taking care to create a firm point of contact between the strips and ensuring the positive/negative sides are aligned correctly.
Step 6: Test the Strip (IMPORTANT)!
Use a 2-way terminal block or wire nuts to temporarily connect the full length of LED strip lights with the power supply. If everything is wired correctly, the lights should switch on when the power supply is plugged in. If they don’t come on right away at full brightness, check to see that the connectors are solidly attached and that the negative and positive wires are aligned correctly onto the strip.
Note: For more advice, give us a call for free on-the-phone technical consultation at any time during business hours.
Step 7: Install the LED Strips under the counter
Wipe down the under surface of the counter and make sure it is clean. The 3M take will stick to most non-porous and flat surfaces. For applications under concrete or very rough material, an adhesive may be used. After wiping the under counter clean, peel back the protective cover over the strip’s adhesive backing. Run the strip in a straight line under the counter where you want the lights to shine.
Step 8: Installing the Dimmer
To mount the dimmer to the wall, Next, wire the unplugged power supply into the dimmer by running the wires (the black wire goes in the negative (-) slot and the red wire goes into the positive (+) slot) into the bottom housing on the right side labeled “In”. Use a flathead screwdriver to secure the connection. Then wire the Cerrowire into the section of the housing labeled “Out”, again using the screwdriver to secure the wires into place.
The final result should look something like the photo below.
Step 9: Turn on the Lights!
The last step is the easiest, but also the most fulfilling step in the whole process. Now all you have to do is plug in the power supply, turn up the dimmer to the brightness level of your choosing and enjoy your new under counter LED lighting!
Question 3: How to replace a strip light?
Step 1 Remove the previous LED light strip
Not sure if they all come off this easy, but ours just pulled right off with a bit of persuasion.
Trim off the wires at the end of the strip. Leaving 2-3 inches to work with so you can attach the new stripping.
Make sure you clean the track well first to make sure the new LED Strip’s backing adheres properly.
Depending on the brand of LED stripping you get, you may have to get some extra 3M double sided
Tape to keep the LED strip connected. This particular strip wanted to keep falling off.
Here I am stripping the red and black wires, leaving a little wiggle room for further adjustments.
Before I seal everything up, I connect the black to black, red to red, and then give it a test run to make sure everything is working properly.
Question 4: Do I need a separate hub to connect SMAlux Bluetooth Strip Light?
Answer: The product is work with Google Home and Amazon Alexa, a separate hub is not necessary.
Question 5: Can I set time for SMAlux LED Strip Light to turn on and turn off automatically.
Answer: Yes, you can set time to turn off or turn on your phone.

Answer: Make sure your device is of Bluetooth 4.0 version.
Question 9: How many smart lighting devices can be controlled with one command?
Answer: You can add as many devices as you can in a group, right now the test did not find the upper limit.
Question 10: What is NB-iot？
Answer：The Narrow Band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is an important branch of the Internet of Everything. Built on a cellular network, NB-IoT consumes only about 180KHz of bandwidth and can be deployed directly on GSM networks, UMTS networks or LTE networks to reduce deployment costs and achieve smooth upgrades.
Focusing on the low-power wide coverage (LPWA) Internet of Things (IoT) market, NB-IOT is an emerging technology that can be used globally.
