New Twinkly solutions are now available in Ukraine! So, it’s time to take a look at the features and benefits of Twinkly products!

At the end of 2023, the Twinkly range was expanded with the following products:

  • Twinkly Strings RGBW 600;
  • Twinkly Curtain RGBW 400;
  • Twinkly Dots Lights RGB 200/400;
  • Twinkly Squares.

It is also worth noting solutions that, although not new, definitely deserve attention because they have significantly expanded the range. In addition, they have not yet been described in previous reviews, namely:

  • Twinkly Flex;
  • Twinkly Line;
  • Twinkly Light tree;
  • Twinkly Festoon.

But before you get acquainted with the new solutions, we recommend watching a Twinkly video review, which shows how to connect and set up garlands and light decorations, life hacks for their use, and much more interesting information.

Now, let’s briefly talk about what Twinkly is and how to navigate the brand’s wide range of products. Twinkly is a new generation of LED decorations based on three types of LEDs. They can be controlled by a controller that is included in each set or by the free Twinkly mobile app.

By the way, the app has also been improved: it has updated intuitive visuals and functionality. Therefore, it will not take much time and effort to master all the intricacies of its use. Each user can customize Twinkly garlands according to their own preferences, creating a special mood for family and guests.

The Twinkly range consists of three series: each series uses a specific LED type — RGB, AWW, and RGBW. These types are indicated in the name of the Twinkly products, so it is easy to distinguish the products not only by name but also by the powerful effects they create. In addition, each package has intuitive icons that also help to navigate the product features.

So, as for the correspondence of the LED types to the series names:

  • The bright, colorful Twinkly RGB collection, known as the Twinkly Multicolor Edition, has more than 16 million colors and their tones;
  • the elegant AWW collection is Twinkly Gold Edition. The solutions are designed for the realization of classic light show scenarios with cold and warm shades of white;
  • the brightest RGBW collection, also known as Twinkly Special Edition, combines the advantages of the previous two, namely RGB colors and warm and cold white tones of the AWW spectrum.

The huge range of Twinkly LED decorations can be divided into two groups by purpose and design: garlands and lighting devices, which are further divided into design series.

Thus, the group of garlands has nine design series:

  1. Strings. Strings or threads.
  2. Icicles or rain.
  3. A curtain.
  4. A cluster.
  5. Spitzer. A starburst.
  6. A series of garlands that are pre-installed and customized on Christmas trees, Christmas lights or wreaths right at the factory.
  7. Twinkly Light Tree. A light cone made of garlands.
  8. Festoon. Garlands with retro-style lamps.
  9. Twinkly Dots. Garlands that look like glowing beads.

By the way, there are variations of garlands with a different number of lamps — from 20 to 600. Moreover, the products can have different colors of the garland cable: from the popular classic black to transparent, white or green.

The group of lighting devices consists of three series:

  1. Twinkly Flex;
  2. Twinkly Line;
  3. Twinkly Squares.

All Twinkly devices can be expanded using add-ons, physically or virtually, and combined into an ensemble via the Twinkly app. The main limitation when synchronizing into a single group is that the products must have the same LED type, but they can belong to different design series.

For example: you can combine Curtain RGBW and Strings RGBW into a group through the Twinkly app because they have the same LED type (RGBW), while this is not possible for Curtain RGBW and Strings RGB because the LEDs used are different in type.

Now it’s time to take a closer look at the updated products.

Twinkly Strings Series

The garlands of this series have the most traditional design — a sequence of a certain number of lamps spaced 10 cm apart. But at the same time, Twinkly Strings are revolutionary in terms of implementation and effects.

The series has products for 100, 250, 400 and 600 lamps, which also differ in LED types — RGB, AWW and RGBW.

This year, the series has been expanded with the Twinkly Strings RGBW 600 Smart LED garland.

Previously, the maximum number of 600 lamps was available only in the RGB variation, and now it is also available in the RGBW version, which makes it possible to enjoy the colors of both 16 million colors and shades of white. And all this with a maximum length of 48 m! This combination of LEDs and length opens up endless possibilities for creativity and space decoration.

Twinkly Curtain

This garland is essentially a sequence of long, vertically hanging segments of the Strings type on a horizontal carrier. It is suitable not only as a curtain for doors and windows, but its «strands» can be assembled into braids, tied as ribbons and many other ways of application.

Previously, in this series there was a model with 210 lamps (Smart LED Twinkly Curtain RGBW 210), and now with 400 LEDs (Smart LED Twinkly Curtain RGBW 400) and RGBW colors in almost twice the size – 3 m × 2 m, as opposed to the previous model of 2.1 m × 1 m.

Twinkly Dots Lights

Smart LED lamps Twinkly Dots will help you add universal light and color to your space. Thanks to Dots, you can realize any idea! With this miniature, flexible premium filament, you can implement many interesting lighting solutions. The Smart garland is available in several variations: with 200 (Smart LED Twinkly Dots Lights RGB 200) and 400 (Smart LED Twinkly Dots Lights RGB 400) lamps 10 and 20 meters long, respectively. The LEDs of the series have a flat, matte head, providing extraordinary brightness. The wide color gamut covers more than 16 million shades. Moreover, this solution is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Twinkly Squares

LED wall panels Twinkly Squares radically change the idea of decorative lighting. Each Squares wall panel in the basic version has six squares (Smart LED Twinkly Squares 1+5 RGB) – one main/supervisory and 5 additional squares. However, it can be expanded by 3 squares with the Smart LED Twinkly Squares 3 RGB, which is connected to the basic set and does not function independently, as it does not have a «master square».

Each square is equipped with 64 premium addressable LEDs controlled via the app, which reproduce a wide range of color shades (16 million). Physically, you can combine each main panel with 15 additional panels and use the Twinkly App to synchronize groups of Squares to create huge displays with adjustable effects and animations. You can also play GIFs and pixel art.

But there are some new products that have been added to the range that we haven’t talked about yet, namely:

  • Flex;
  • Line;
  • Light Tree;
  • Festoon.

Twinkly Flex

Twinkly Flex: the solution is similar to a gradient light strip that can be bent to create shapes, inscriptions, contours and other creative lighting and decorative objects that will effectively emphasize the interior of the room and add bright accents.

Twinkly Line

Twinkly Line – a 1.5-meter-long LED strip with a hundred RGB LEDs arranged one behind the other at 1.5 cm intervals and an adhesive backing on the back. Such a garland is very convenient for decorating furniture, various surfaces, zoning rooms, and, most importantly, such decoration is appropriate at all times.

The basic set consists of an LED strip and a controller. An additional set can be connected to it, which does not include a controller but adds another 1.5 meters of strip with 100 lamps. The connection can be made in two ways: one-to-one or via a special connector, which provides additional opportunities for imaginative decorating.

Twinkly Light Tree

Light Tree – a Christmas tree decorated with smart garland without a tree itself, i.e. it is a light cone made of garlands with a transparent wire carrier (cone lace). The height of the models varies from 1.5 to 6 m, and the number of lamps ranges from 450 to 1,000.

Life hack: the LED density of such a Christmas tree can be increased by adding, for example, Smart LED Twinkly Strings RGBW 600, and thus create an even brighter decoration.

Twinkly Festoon

Twinkly Festoon. This is a premium 10 m long garland with 20 LEDs, which is distinguished by its extraordinary brightness, a different, rounder shape of the lamps, like retro garlands, and a wide color range of more than 16 million shades. The solution is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors.

It would be appropriate to briefly remind you of other products in the Twinkly range.

Twinkly Icicle

Icicle – icicles or rain. A chain of short (with 2-6 lamps), vertically hanging segments («mini strings») on a horizontal carrier. An original solution for decorating walls or windows.

Twinkly Cluster

Cluster – a modification of «strings», in which 190 LEDs are not assembled in a chain, but arranged like leaves on a stem, branching in different directions at intervals of 1.5 cm. This garland looks especially good on window curtains.

We talked about the latest Twinkly updates, the timeless updates of previous years, and even remembered the classics from the range.

10 Reasons to Choose Twinkly

So, it’s time to summarize the 10 reasons why you should choose Twinkly, and at the same time, to point out how the brand’s products stand out from other garlands and lighting solutions for decorating the space.

The first – a unique mapping feature! After all, the Twinkly app determines the exact position of each LED through the smartphone camera, forming a complete map of them for further use and creating effects to scale. And not only on one side of the installation (2D), but also in 360° (3D). As a result, you can create incredible light compositions and color shapes!

The second reason – the grouping capability, which allows you to combine up to 10 different Twinkly Gen II garlands (Gen II is the name of the second generation of products created in the second half of 2019 and 2020) or up to 6,000 of its lamps into a synchronized group. Even more: up to 30,000 LEDs when using Twinkly PRO professional category lights! With this feature, you can decorate objects of any scale! By the way, a video review of Twinkly PRO features and settings is available for watching.

The third – the Music Dongle adapter, which enables the happy owners of Twinkly to add color and shape to any music composition. Now, every corner of the house can be transformed into a party, a romantic and cozy space, or a place to meet friends.

The fourth reason – an original effects gallery in the Twinkly app, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy incredible colorful and vibrant shows! It’s enough to choose from several preset effects of ordinary garlands. The Twinkly app has dozens of ready-made interesting light scenarios for every taste.

The fifth – the ability to create your own effects with the same app: turn your smartphone into your own creative studio where you can create your own color effects for your garlands with just one touch.

So, express your individuality – your imagination – because it’s incredibly easy with Twinkly! In addition, you can now upload pictures or «gifs», which makes the creative process even more interesting.

The sixth – a huge range of light decorations. As I said, Twinkly products are divided into 12 design series, each of which uses three LEDs types (RGB, AWW, and RGBW) and a different number of lamps, and they also differ in cable color. The series are identified by names, so they are easy to recognize and understand their features.

So, let’s recall these 12 design series once again: Strings, Icicle, Curtain, Cluster, Spitzer, Prelit, Squares, Dots, Flex, Line, Light Tree, and Festoon.

The seventh reason – a protection availability. For example, all Twinkly garlands have IP44 protection class, and Twinkly PRO has IP65 protection class. Twinkly lighting devices are a little less fortunate, as they have IP20 protection, but we believe that they will be upgraded in the near future.

The eighth – Twinkly PRO. These professional solutions for business allow you to create larger groupings and have no limits at all, opening up new horizons for professional decorating and creating effects.

The ninth – a collaboration with Razer and Omen! Now gamers have a unique opportunity to try a new way to control the gaming atmosphere. To do so, simply combine a Razer laptop, Razer peripherals, and Twinkly lights into a single, technologically advanced controlled system to create incredible, impressive sound and light scenes. By setting up your Chroma-compatible devices and connecting them to the Razer Chroma app, your space will instantly shine with all the colors of Twinkly.

The tenth, but not the less important, reason – Twinkly’s compatibility with Google Home and Alexa for convenient everyday voice control: you can turn the garland on or off, adjust the brightness, or change the colors at any time!

The new Twinkly range is available to order!

To summarize, with Twinkly smart garlands, everyone can create magic and create comfort in any corner of the house: from the living room and bedroom to the gaming room or children’s room – there are no limits to the flight of imagination! These garlands will add a special atmosphere and make every moment unforgettable.
