Are the lights dimmable?
Yes, they are!
Are the lights replaceable?
Yes. They are low voltage so the homeowner can replace them themselves. We can also come out to do it.
Can I control the front of my home separately from the back?
Yes, we have zoning which allows the ability to only turn on certain sections of lights or to have different patterns on different parts of your home at the same time.
Can I create and save lighting timers?
Yes, you can save multiple nightly & weekly timers as well as calendar events for holidays and other special occasions. We are linked with weather.com so you can link with sunset to sunrise.
Can I customize my own lighting and patterns?
Yes, you can! The lights are individually addressable which allows you to choose which lights you want on and what color (over 16 million different colors). We also have 102 preset patterns.
Can I install this myself?
Yes, we can sell you materials for a self-installation and provide you with directions on how to install. However, it is a difficult process and something we do not recommend.
Can I make a soft white color?
Can I make my own accent lighting?
Yes, you can! The lights are individually addressable which allows you to choose which lights you want on and what color (anything from bright to soft white). For example, you can turn on two lights at the top of each peak while the rest of the lights stay off.
Do I have to upgrade my hardware to get new features?
With the P2 system, controller updates are sent to your email with instructions on how to update your firmware. App updates will happen through your devices app store.
How do payments work?
Half down is due to schedule an installation date. The other half is due upon completion.
How do the lights look during the day?
JellyFish Lighting is discreet during the day as each light is inset under your trim. To see how our lights look during the day, please visit the Photo Gallery Samples page.
How long does installation take?
Our crews average around 150 feet per day.
How long does the system last?
JellyFish Lighting System is a robust, outdoor rated LED lighting system. LED lighting is known for its durability. Each diode (or puck light) has 3 LED lights which makes them brighter than any of our competitors. The LEDs are rated for 30,000 hours of use which is 15-20 years of nightly use for 3-4 hours.
How long has JellyFish Lighting been in business?
The inventor of JellyFish Lighting has been working with his color-changing exterior lights since 2011, and under the JellyFish Lighting name since 2016.
How many different colors and patterns can you do?
The lights are RGB and can produce over 16 million different colors. The user can create custom programs and colors, so the possibilities are limitless.
How much does it cost?
Costs vary slightly because not all homes are the same. JellyStream Lighting typically charges $22-$26 per linear foot installed plus $600 for the controller. The actual price per foot is based on installation difficulty, roof line style, location, and time of year.
How much electricity does the system use?
The lights on full bright white use less than one watt of power. Also, the controller pulls about 1.1 amps of electricity per 100 feet.
What colors do you offer to help my lighting blend in during the day?
Our goal is to have the JellyFish Lighting system be as invisible as possible during the day. We offer multiple colors so that the installed tracks blend in with most gutter and soffit systems. These are the most common colors:
- Charcoal Gray
- Classic Cream
- Copper Penny
- Dark Bronze
- Desert Sand
- Harbor Gray
- London Brown
- Montana Suede
- Musket Brown
- Royal Brown
- Russet Red
- Terrra Bronze
- Victorian Gray
What is JellyFish Lighting?

What is the system warranty?
We have a warranty of 1 year covering labor and 3 years covering parts.
What maintenance is required?
From time to time a light will go out and would need to be replaced.
Where are the controller and power supplies mounted?
The controller and any additional power supplies are mounted indoors, typically on a wall in your garage safe from the elements. They plug into an outlet. One controller can power up to 300 ft depending on the wiring. From there, we run low voltage wire from your garage to the soffit of the first section of roofing.
Where are the lights installed?
The lights are installed to the outer part of the soffit behind the fascia or trim facing downward.
Where is JellyFish Lighting made?
Our controller is manufactured in our factory in Orem, Utah. Our metal is fabricated locally in Utah, Colorado, and Texas. We employ local USA citizens in all locations. In order to make our product more accessible, we manufacture our lights in Asia.
