outdoor ip65 rated color changing and white LED strip light

Outdoor IP65 ColorBright™️ RGBW Color Changing + White LED Strip Light


The Outdoor ColorBright™ (IP65)  Color Changing + White LED strip light is a reel of linear color changing LED chips mounted on a flexible printed circuit board (PCB) that has a silicone coating offering protection from water and foreign elements. These lights can create any color you can imagine, including a beautiful warm white. No longer will you have to sacrifice one product for the other, we have combined them both into one strip.

The IP65 rating means that the LED strip lights are able to withstand jets and splashes of water from all sides. It cannot be submerged in water, but it will withstand the elements. We also recommend outdoor lights for use indoors in areas that receive exposure to water or if you're looking for a strip that is easier to clean.

Outdoor ColorBright™ RGBW Color Changing LED strip light FAQ


Q: What is the product warranty?

We’re so happy with the quality of our product, we offer a 15-year warranty on most of our LED strips to all of our clients. The warranty on power supplies ranges from 2 to 7 years which is model dependent.

Q: What is the lifespan of your strip lights?

Our lights have been rigorously tested and have an expected lifespan of 50,000 hours before dropping to 70% luminosity. This means that if you were to use your lights 12 hours a day, every day, the lights would be expected to last longer than 10 years. Even after that time has elapsed, the lights will maintain a brightness of 70%. Higher-output strips require a heat sink to reach the expected lifespan and beyond.

Q: What is color temperature?

The color of light can be quantified by referring to its color temperature. White light is measured in Kelvins (K). Most white lights fall in a spectrum between 1800K and 6200K. When dropping below 3000K, the light is noticeably warmer or "softer". On the other end of the spectrum, the lights have a blue-ish tint and cooler tone when passing 6500K.

Q: What are lumens (lm)?

This is a quantifiable amount of light produced by an LED strip or other light-producing product. This is one way we can measure light output.

Q: What is the lumen output of the ColorBright RGB+W when set to white?

The lumen output for ColorBright RGB+W (30K, 42K, 62K) is as follows:
CB-RGB30K: 650LM/M
CB-RGB62K: 700LM/M
CB-RGB42K: 680LM/

Q: Do you sell your outdoor rated lights by the foot?

No, we do not. We stock out IP65 outdoor rated lights in 8’ or 16’ lengths. For certain projects, we may be able to produce special lengths for you. Please let us know your requirements. IP68 waterproof strips are available in 16’ lengths that may be special ordered and subject to a one month manufacturing lead time.

Q: What are the recommendations on adhering outdoor-rated strip lights?

All of our outdoor-rated lights come with mounting brackets. The strip also has a 3M adhesive on the back. We recommend using both for the most secure installation. They can also be installed within a mounting channel.

Q: What does IP mean? What is the difference between IP65 and IP68?

This is a rating system that defines the ability of a product to be able to work in different environments. IP is an acronym "Ingress Protection". It is a measurement of the protection an item will have against solid objects (dust, sand, dirt, etc.) and liquids.
An IP rating is comprised of 2 numbers. The first number refers to the protection against solid objects (dust, etc) and the second number refers to protection against liquids. Here is a complete article about IP ratings.

Q: Can I cut reels that are outdoor rated IP65?

Yes. Be sure to reseal the strip light each time it’s cut to prevent water damage. A lot of clients like to use a liquid electrical tape.

Q: How flexible are these outdoor strips?

The IP65 is flexible like a measuring tape. Because we use a soft silicone sleeve to make the strip water resistant, it is still very flexible.

Q: How do I install RGBW color changing LED strip lights ?

RGBW strip lights need to use a RGBW controller for them to work. Once you have selected the length of lights you want, you will have to select a power supply by calculating the wattage the length of strip will be using. When selecting a remote, make sure that you are not going beyond the wattage maximum for that particular controller. For longer run lengths, you are going to want to use an amplifier, or another controller. The strips have 5 wires that need to go into their appropriate places within the RGBW controller. May attention to the indicator markings on the strip. Learn the basics of installing RGB LED strip lighting under counters, connecting them to the controller, mounting and controlling them, here. Consult our design team for extra assistance.

Q: What is the maximum run length of RGBW strip lights?

The run length for this strip is 32’ 10” (2 reels). Please contact our design team for help with larger projects.
