Brains & Brawn

The key core value of the Trulux light system is control. Without proper control, the greatest tape light in the world doesn't mean much. But with excellent control, through ease of use and ease of installation, you can accomplish amazing and breathtaking things.

The heart of a Trulux LED tape light system are the Trulux controllers and Trulux receivers.

  • Controllers are where you interact with the strip light and tell it what you want it to do. Whether it be dimming, color tuning, changing colors, or assigning and saving different configurations to different scenes or zones, the Trulux controllers allow you to fully harness the power of the Trulux tape light.
  • Receivers are what accept and interpret the commands coming from the controllers and translate them into actual electrical signals that make the Trulux light perform as needed.
BUT HERE'S THE GREAT PART: The controllers and receivers can communicate WIRELESSLY!

That means you can locate your strip light where you need it, and you do not need to worry about running signal wiring from the controller to the receiver. This greatly simplifies installation and setup. You can use dedicated controllers that communicate via radio frequency (RF) with the receivers, or you can use your smartphone (iOS or Android) to control the lights over WiFi. Wired DMX options are also available for larger installations.
