02/06/17 RGB Lights: Memory vs Non-Memory

RGB Lights: Memory vs Non-Memory

RGB lights support a robust selection of controls and functions that can be used to streamline application. One of the most in demand features by businesses today is memory. Read on to find out how memory functionality works in RGB lights, and how they compare with non-memory RGB fixtures.

Mechanisms and Benefits of Memory Functions

RGB lights with memory features are designed to simplify complex controls. Controllers that support such functions allow operators to set colors or animations in advance, and play them with the push of a button. They are also used to save the last setting after powering the device off. In some cases, the presets or profiles can be programmed to play autonomously at a specific time. Setting up memory functions is done through the remote that comes with the controller, or via third-party app that is compatible with the unit.

In application, RGB memory fixtures can be deployed in a wide range of industries. For clubs and bars, the lights may contribute to the overall theme or mood of the ambient environment. When used for large scale lighting, such as exhibition halls and museums, the feature can be programmed to shine light on specific displays and artifacts. In the advertising sector, a flurry of colorful RGB lights on billboards or posters may be used to attract nearby pedestrians.

Combining memory units with music, fog machines or water fountain displays is a common practice in the outdoor events sector. In residential settings, such lights are typically used during the holidays (such as Christmas or Halloween) to enhance elaborate lighting configurations. Businesses that use RGB lights for emergency services may setup eye-catching animations for easy detection in remote areas.

RGB lights with memory chips are naturally more sophisticated, compared to models without the feature. Because of this, memory-capable fixtures are more prone to malfunction or failure. Maintenance may be required to ensure that the parts are working properly, and are not exposed to extreme environments that could cause premature faults. Though it is important to note that most RGB light manufacturers provide basic usage guidelines on the label of the unit. For example, some fixtures come with waterproof ratings or special casings that promote applications for pool decoration lighting, fountains and landscapes.

RGB Non-Memory Uses and Advantages

RGB lights without memory functionalities are applicable for straightforward, general lighting requirements. During application, operators must manipulate the fixture’s colors and animations manually. Furthermore, settings cannot be preset (there are no options to create lighting profiles) or remembered by the device when it is powered off. Individuals who do not need autonomous features may benefit from non-memory RGB lights. For example, when used for security and real-time monitoring, consistent, bright lights are applied to ensure constant illumination over the location. Unlike memory RGB lights, non-memory variants do not require meticulous maintenance. This is because the unit lacks a memory chip and other supportive components found in memory RGB fixtures.
