Brightness of Addressable LED Strips
As you are no doubt aware of, the brightness of LED strips is measured in terms of lumens,
not as watts, contrary to popular perception. Because of the great improvement in LED technology,
even small diode can emit a brighter light than ever before. However, this should not be taken to
mean that all LED strip lights will be bright.
In many cases, you wouldn’t want the LED lights to be bright and in fact should use a dimmer for
accent lighting. How bright you want the LED strip lights to be depends on the number of chips on
the LED strip and how far apart they are from one another. Higher the number of chips and shorter
the distance between them, greater will be the brightness or luminosity of the LED strip lights.
