Not as complicated as you might think: fairy light systems

Houses, balconies and gardens decorated with strings of lights are just magical – especially in the winter season. Have you always wanted to install fairly lights around your home, but haven’t been quite sure how to? It might look complicated at first, but there are easy systems that allow anyone to put up string lights. Let us talk you through two string light systems.

Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without fairy lights. While in the US, it’s usual to see homes draped in lights, string lights are used in a more subtle way in Switzerland. Fairy lights up the banisters, a string of lights around some trees; that’s all it takes to get in the mood for Christmas.

Smart lighting: «System 24» by Star Trading

System 24 is currently the most versatile outdoor lighting system on the market. Up to 1,500 bulbs in warm white LED light can be illuminated per transformer. The best thing about System 24 is its easy handling: With a suitable WiFi receiver, you can control your lights from your smartphone or tablet by app. You can also set a start and end time in the app, so you don’t need a timer switch. The WiFi receiver features ten different blinking speeds and dimming phases. The alternative, System Decor, works in the same way, but has fewer light bulbs, making it suitable for anyone with a smaller budget.

Setting it up

The construction is rather simple: The best idea is to get a starter kit (marked with «Start»), as this includes a transformer. The next step is to put up all the extensions you want. You only need a WiFi receiver if you’re planning to control your lights via app and make use of special effects and dimming phases.

Ich schlage vor, den Unterschied in der Bedeutung der beiden Adjektive "kompliziert" und "komplex" zu eruieren.
Dann könnte es sein, dass der Titel diese Beitrags plötzlich heisst "Gar nicht mal so kompliziert: Lichterkettensysteme"
Manchmal ist eben sehr komplex, das Ding mit der Sprache …
