Anybody have jellyfish lighting?


Recommended Posts

We put a tile roof on for a guy.  A year later he got jellyfish lighting.  
 

A week after that we replaced a bunch of broken tiles and replaced some flashing techniques that got drilled through.   
 

The lights look nice.

We are having them installed next week.

Looking forward to lighting the house orange for Texas/ou.

 

Those that have them, you happy with them?

They sure aren’t cheap.

But don’t have to worry about putting up Xmas lights anymore.

How did this work out and what was the price per sq. foot?   As pricing X-Mas light installation (which keeps going up) this may be something I look into for 2023.

Last pic is what I did for Texas/ou.
Picture doesn’t do it justice and wish I could post video.
Have the orange lights moving from left to right.

Light combinations are endless. Just takes some time figuring out programming.
Tons of great preloaded options though.

All in all, I am super satisfied with them.
It worked out to about $30 per foot.
Expensive, but we were spending $250 a year on Christmas lights.
No more.

We had them installed last month.  We love them.  House is orange/white on Saturdays and blue/white on Sundays.  On weekdays we've had Halloween colors up this month.  The sales guy made a mistake on the pricing but they honored the quote he gave, so ours came out to about $24/lf.  Apparently the peaks on our roof are close to 40', because they could barely reach them with their 32' ladder.  No way in hell I'd hang lights up there so the cost is worth it.

I got a quote for $8k. Seems high.

We installed Trimlight in March of 2021 and love them. I use white security/accent lights normally but have preprogrammed schemes for holidays, Longhorns, Astros, Liverpool FC. We had a couple issues but the installer came out and repaired/replaced things very quickly.

We had the lights installed 9” apart and paid around $3500 (but that was 18 months ago).

From their website:
JellyFish Lighting typically costs ~$25-30 per foot installed plus $650 for the controller at our corporate locations. The price per foot is based on difficulty, location, and time of year. Authorized Dealer’s pricing is independent of corporate pricing.

Ours was $5900, and in the pic you're looking at probably 60% of the installed lights.  I have an L-shaped 3-car garage on the left side that has lights hung and about 20' worth of lights going down the side on the right.  Like I said, I think we paid $24/lf as a mistake, so do the math on that.

We also got a quote from Trimlight that was a few hundred dollars cheaper, but I didn't like the look of their product.  Their LED lights were bulb shaped, like a small oven or microwave type bulb and protruded out of the c-channel base they installed.  The Jellyfish lights are a round disc and fit flush in the base.  Their product looked cleaner overall to me, but that was just a matter of taste.  I think both give off the same light.

Swonie,
Mind giving a general idea of the price/ft?

Sorry for the delay I’ve been off Surly all day. I looked everywhere for my invoice but can’t find it. I was around $20 per foot including the controller. We set it up in January 2021 so we got in on the post Christmas sale.

Is there a bulb I can put in my now obsolete soffit can lights that is wifi controllable and color variable?  Prove it.

There are. Philips hue and many other cheaper options. As long as they have WiFi connectivity
