After the type of control is selected, decide what is being controlled: all fixtures glob- ally, each fixture individually, fixed runs or a custom configuration. Larger sites with 30+ fixtures require flexibility to set up custom scenes to vary colors as well as in- tensities (think alternating red/white/blue for patriotic holidays). Smaller jobs can often settle for a simpler approach with all lights limited to the same color. Beware of systems limited to individual fixture control only; it is an extremely time-consuming process and can be frustrating.


Quality


Before selecting color-changing LEDs, consider first how well colors blend. Mixing three or four LED colors often leads to striations and “rainbow effects” on surfac- es in close proximity. The effect is usually not apparent on all colors. Therefore, it is worthwhile to inspect various colors from multiple distances before making a final selection.


Now that you have your color-changing plan in place, look forward to creating lasting memories for homeowners in all of their favorite colors.
