Twinkly is already well known for offering some of the best smart lights on the market, especially with its range of full RGB app-controlled string lights. While string and net lights are typically seen as holiday lighting, Twinkly has now made its dramatic entrance into the world of light strips with two new products - the Twinkly Line and the Twinkly Flex.

Line and Flex are both integrated within the existing Twinkly ecosystem, allowing you to fully control effects, colors and even create custom animations using the official Twinkly mobile app. This also means that multiple products can be connected and easily configured via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, creating a full thematic experience for your home, regardless of the placement or location of the lights.

Take ambience to another level

Smart lighting isn't something new on the scene, but the customizable Twinkly ecosystem creates more market choices for people outside of other products like the Phillips Hue range of bulbs and lightstrips. Colorful room lighting has been booming in popularity in recent years with products like Nanoleaf creating a buzz within online communities, often featuring in the backdrop of many popular content creators. In this market, we're sure the new additions to the Twinkly family will prove extremely popular given the spectrum of creative possibilities.

Twinkly Line
 is a self-adhesive and magnetic strip of exposed LED lights that can be physically manipulated into patterns and shapes to create wall art, or placed around items like TV back panels and furniture, while the Twinkly Flex is a diffused, flexible LED Light tube that can be adapted into different shapes to emulate retro neon-style signs and designs.

Similarly, websites like Neon Beach offer nostalgic lighting using LEDs to emulate more expensive glass-blown genuine neon, which has made the 'night club' chic more accessible to the public.
