Characterized by an adhesive backing, strip lights, also known as tape lights, refer to a flat, flexible circuit board containing SMD LEDs. These low voltage LED fixtures see use as accent lighting or task lighting in many different applications, including:
Strip lights also have outdoor uses, such as lighting a deck, under an awning, or around the roof and windows of your home, and you can even put a waterproof LED strip light fixture in the pool. When using strip lights outdoors, make sure they have an IP rating of 65 or above. Even if you plan to put your lights under an awning or covering, you still need to choose outdoor-rated lights that can withstand water splashing or running down. An IP65 rating ensures the lights stay waterproof and protect them from the temperature of the surfaces they adhere to. An IP68 rating indicates that the lights can completely submerge underwater.
