Flex into Fixtures: Taking LEDs to the Next Level

Flexible LED strips first came onto the market as energy efficient solution for accent lighting, particularly in kitchens. A low-profile design made them easy to hide away under cabinets, counter tops, or shelves, while the robust nature of the flex made the use of traditional lenses unnecessary in most applications. This meant reduced material costs which helped LED flex strips to become one of the most affordable lighting options available. For the past several years these so-called “bare flex” installations have grown in popularity, allowing the average consumer to achieve the look of high-end lighting for less. But as increased competition…

New Product Release: Super Clip Tiger Paw

Back in 2013, Inspired LED received our first patent for our solderless “Tiger Paw®” LED connectors, which allowed our customers to quickly and easily make modifications to LED flex strips in the field.

Our Tiger Paw® Screw Terminal allowed contractors to utilize their own bulk cable while our plug-in 3.5mm connector system is ideally suited for the simplest installs. Our Right Angle Tiger Paw® tackled corners, while the Micro-lock was specially designed to fit in…

Spring Cleaning Challenge: Welcoming Warmer Weather with LEDs

While friends, relatives, and readers in the Midwest or East Coast may be quick to laugh at the idea, even those of us here in Arizona have anxiously been awaiting the return of spring. Emerging from the long weeks of a (somewhat) frozen winter makes us want to shake of the dust, throw open the windows and welcome the warm weather back into our homes. For many people, including myself, there is little better way to kick off the season than with a thorough bout of spring cleaning. But despite the gratification of having a squeaky clean home, I’d be willing…

Where to Add Toe-Kick Lighting Around Your Home

LED lighting can be used in a variety of locations around the home, although it is perhaps most commonly used under kitchen cabinets. This application provides a functional light for cooking, while also adding stylistic appeal. But in addition to bright task lighting, LED’s also provide a convenient solution for more subtle (yet equally important) accent lighting. Installing LED lighting above cabinets and along shelves, behind televisions or pieces of art, even in ceiling coves, can do wonders to improve the styling of a room! One of our very favorite accent lighting applications is also one which is commonly overlooked despite its advantages- toe-kicks!…

These handy accessories combine with standard interconnect cables to allow anyone to quickly and easily create an LED layout using just a pair of scissors! However there are times where a customer or installer may prefer to use a direct wire option- being able to purchase cable in bulk…

Accessory of the Week: NEW Right Angle Tiger Paws

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line. But in many instances, an LED installation requires more than just straight lines! Think of all the architectural features in your home or office space which are made up of angles and curves.  Flexible LED strips make quick work of rounded edges, but when it comes to turning sharp corners, issues can arise. One of the most common solutions up to this point has been to use a 4” jumper cable to round corners. For under cabinet applications, this typically works just fine; the cables are easy to install…
