Smart LED lights for professionals
Smart LED lights for professionals
Twinkly Pro is a technological breakthrough in traditional lighting decoration and a true innovation for the entire lighting industry. Twinkly Pro lights have been developed to benefit from the enormous potential of intelligent LED lighting. By developing the hardware and software platform, the installer can create fantastic lighting scenes that previously required specific technical knowledge and a lot of implementation time. Twinkly Pro includes decorative lighting, a wide range of accessories and an advanced software platform that can be used on mobile devices via the app.
Go to selected issues:
With Twinkly Pro you can create your own light scene because you can control each individual LED – change its colour, light intensity and effects; you can adjust them as you wish. You can select or design animation effects to play on lights as if they were pixels on a big screen.
You can also create a playlist of light effects that will be played one after another. Twinkly Pro is suitable for both small installations such as medium-sized trees as well as more complex installations like lighting a country street or a shopping mall. All of this may seem very complex but in reality the process is quick and easy thanks to the Twinkly app.
The miniaturization of electronics in recent years has made it possible to mount very small electronic circuits inside LEDs giving them intelligence that offers new decorative possibilities. Each LED has a unique address and, when turned on, can recognize instructions travelling in the data stream along the electric cable.
The instructions are sent from the central processing unit or “controller”, managed individually or synchronically with other controllers through the Twinkly application installed on the mobile device.
Twinkly PRO Products:
• Twinkly Pro Lights (strings of lights, light curtains, bulb chains)
• Controllers (Ethernet, Wi-Fi, MusicPlayer , Connection HUB)
• Accessories (port splitter, extension cord).
The Twinkly app can be installed on an Apple smartphone or tablet with iOS 11 or later. You can configure with the App all decorations and create creative light shows.
Twinkly Console is a web application that allows you to remotely control the installation via a web browser.
You can choose the Twinkly Pro chain of lights based on the colour profile.
RGB LED is a combination of 3 LEDs of different profiles: red, green and blue. By adjusting the light intensity of each LED, millions of different colour hues can be created.
RGB LEDs cannot reproduce traditional white, which is why RGB + W has been developed. RGB + W LEDs are a combination of 4 colours – red, green, blue and warm white LEDs.
AWW diodes are a combination of 3 colours – amber, warm white and cold white diodes. This version allows you to obtain light of all varieties (from gold through silver to bronze).
Twinkly Pro is simple and quick to install
The lights can be wrapped around a tree, a pillar or hung on a wall or a roof. You can also put the lamps on top of each other. It is important to arrange the lights so that the LEDs are as evenly distributed as possible. Connection to controller and router or switch (if needed). The crucial part is choosing the right controller. The first thing to consider is the number of lights we want to manage.
Before we discuss the types of controllers, we would like to introduce a new concept, that is a group of controllers. A group of controllers (or a controller group) is a set of controllers managed by the Twinkly app as if it were one device. A single controller can therefore power and manage the maximum number of LEDs, but can be added to a larger group at the same time.
Twinkly Pro offers two types of controllers, each of which can handle a specific number of LEDs.
The Wi-Fi controller has one port that can be expanded to two with the “Port Splitter ” multi – connector. This is useful when, for example, connecting two strings of 250 LED RGB or AWW.
Twinkly offers different ways to use it:
Only after connecting the Wi-Fi controller to the local network you can create a group of controllers (up to 10 devices or up to 5000 LEDs).
The Wi-Fi connection between the controllers is obviously affected by the quality of the network.
The Wi-Fi controller cannot be grouped with the Ethernet controller.
The controller has 6 ports to which you can connect up to 1500 LEDs (250 LEDs per input). The Ethernet controller has no Wi-Fi connection. To facilitate the setup using the Twinkly app, it must be connected to a Wi-Fi router (or alternatively to a Wi-Fi bridge). For this purpose, the controller is equipped with a 1.5 m long network cable.
The Ethernet controller works with or without Wi-Fi connection. If there is an internet connection, remote control is possible via the Twinkly web app Console. When connecting multiple Ethernet controllers to each other, use a network switch or a new external Twinkly Connection Hub.
When connecting multiple Ethernet controllers to each other, use a network switch or a new external Twinkly Connection Hub. There is no need for a separate power supply to the Twinkly Connection Hub as the Ethernet controller network cable can be used.
After connecting the lights to the controller and creating groups of lights, the LEDs are mapped: the Twinkly app recognizes the exact position of each LED and the 2D or 3D layout of the installation can be displayed on the screen.
There are different mapping types to choose from:
2D – mapping of one side only, useful for mapping light curtains,
3D (front and back) – mapping LEDs in front of and behind a tree,
3D (Multiple View) – more precise mapping that requires multiple scans. Perfect solution for larger installations (requires internet connection).
Once you have assigned your lights, the app offers a selection of lighting effects directly on the assigned model that you can apply immediately.
You can adjust the effects by changing the colour or the playback speed. After applying the effect, it can be saved directly in the controller, so it can be played even when not connected to the decoration. You can choose from many effects already available in the app or download others from the online gallery.
You can also create effects by selecting the desired function and drawing with your finger across the layout or send an image or a film to Twinkly web app Console to recreate decorations.
With Twinkly app Console all Twinkly Pro installations can be managed remotely. In particular, all devices connected to the network and the selected effects are displayed.
With Twinkly Console it is possible to create groups of different installations and synchronize the same effects in these groups. It is also possible to programme the on / off time and lighting effects. A true control center for all Twinkly Pro installations!
The Twinkly Pro app is only available on devices with iOS version 11 or later. With the app you can:
The app is constantly being developed, more and more features will be available in the future.
Two product series have been designed to meet different requirements. Twinkly is intended for the individual customer with smaller installations and a limited number of LEDs. Twinkly Pro is designed for professionals who need to manage larger installations. In this case, higher- quality and weather-resistant products with resin-coated LEDs and thicker cables are required.
Professionals can use Twinkly Pro to programme on and off times, desired lighting settings and lighting effects, and to remotely display and control the lighting system in real time. Twinkly Pro works with both Wi-Fi and Ethernet networks.

The development team behind Twinkly Pro is constantly working to improve the usability of the application and introduce new features that are useful for both professionals and individuals. Another benefit is that new features are immediately available to everyone as they are activated by updating the app.
