As an interior designer and former professional holiday decorator, I understand the importance of lighting in creating a captivating ambience. I have always been a fan of multi-colored lighting in set design and commercial settings since the early days of LED innovation. However, back then, smart apps didn't exist, and the setup was too expensive for the average homeowner. Thankfully, times have changed.

Introducing Twinkly smart lights, the next generation of Christmas cheer. These smart Christmas lights offer millions of color and pattern options for endless customization. Twinkly is a game changer, not just for holidays, but for adding atmosphere to home theaters, gaming rooms, outdoor parties, or any place with a strong Wi-Fi signal. In this review, we'll find out if these lights live up to the hype.

These are not your grandma's Christmas lights. The Twinkly Generation II string lights allow you to create a fully customizable light show controlled by a robust app. They work indoors or outdoors and can be strung on anything, thanks to their thin and pliable connecting wires. Despite their small size, these lights emit an impressive amount of brightness. The app also offers a brightness control feature for indoor use.

Twinkly Smart Christmas Lights Features

With Twinkly smart Christmas lights, you can power them on and off with or without the app. However, using the free app provides access to dozens of patterns and millions of color options. The app also allows you to control the speed, brightness, and angle of motion for some patterns. You can even draw your own design or upload a gif.

These lights are compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple Home Kit for convenient voice control. For an even more immersive experience, you can sync your lights to your favorite tunes with the Twinkly Music device.

How We Brightened Up the Holidays with Twinkly Lights

When the lights first arrived, I plugged them in to ensure they worked. Then, I downloaded the app and connected it to Wi-Fi. I played with the effects but didn't immediately place or map the string. Later, I took them to our office for testing on our artificial Christmas tree. I had to connect them to a new Wi-Fi network, which was a bit of a hassle. However, once I reconnected them to the original network, they performed flawlessly.

Mapping the lights was a simple process. The app magically detected every bulb as I pointed the camera at my tree. With the lights mapped, I was ready to try out the effects, patterns, colors, brightness, and speed. The customization options were endless, and I had a blast experimenting with different looks.
