Introduction to Twinkly String lights

Twinkly string lights are smart, app-controlled string lights that display an unprecedented array of effects. The LED light bulbs shine with extraordinary brightness and color vibrancy in over 16 million colors. Only Twinkly lights can be mapped and individually controlled no matter how you position them. Just hang them however you want, connect them to the app following the included instructions and map them. The Twinkly app guides you through this simple process, activating your smartphone camera and asking you to frame your setup on the screen. The lights do all the work and after a few seconds, a virtual map of all the LEDs will appear on your screen and your effects will play in perfectly coordinated patterns, gradients and animations. The denser your LED layout is, the more your string lights will act like a screen.

If you have multiple string lights, you can group and map them together using the Twinkly app and they will act as one single set of lights. If they are positioned farther apart, you can group and synchronize them to play the same effects at the same time.

“Great lights for any time of year  
This is my 4th set of Twinklies and we truly enjoy them. We now leave the deck lights up until spring for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. They are a joy and help with Minnesota’s dark winter days. We’ve had one power supply go bad and Twinkly replaced it promptly. Not one light has failed over 4 years.”
