How to install a led strip behind and around HDTV?
One of the most popular ways to decorate your home is with LED lights. And if you are looking for a way to make your TV stand out, how about putting some LED strips on the back of the TV or around it? This post crafted by the Toronto TV Mounting team will show how easy it is to put LED lights on TV using led strips.
So, how to install a led strip behind and around HDTV?
- Open the strip lights by unrolling
When you purchase LED lights, they are delivered to your doorstep and it’s time for the next step. The first thing that needs to be done is unrolling them to light up all of the LEDs! If this is a kit with accessories included like remote control or battery pack, now may also be an opportunity to charge those batteries before installing everything together.
- Make sure that the back of your TV is clean
If you want to be sure your LED strip lights will stay attached for a long time, make it easy on yourself by cleaning the back of your TV before applying. If there’s too much dust or moisture in that area, then after sticking them on they’ll just fall off again over and over.
- Determine the location you want to stick the strips
The first step in installing LED strip lights for TV is to measure your TV. Use the 3M double-sided tape and apply LEDs to make sure the placement is correct. Once you’re satisfied with the location, take the backing sheet from the tape and adhere to the LEDs.
- Make sure the strips are connected properly and enjoy!
Many LED strip lights are sold with four separate strip lights and a controller that’s smaller than most other TV controllers. The 3-piece connection cable must be attached to the 4 separate strips. Then, plug one end of the USB cord into the small controller, and the other end into the TV port. You may use the remote control to alter the color and brightness of the lights to change the visual impact.
How to determine which TV Led Strip to choose?
TV’s make watching TV more enjoyable but they also require some lighting to be able to enjoy the show. Most people get a light for their entertainment center and then find that it doesn’t quite do enough when you’re trying to watch your favorite shows in low-light conditions or even at night time, so we have found LED strip lights which provide an extra amount of brightness without creating eye strain as well as looking nice! They come in many colors with options like white, red, green, etc., all depending on what is best suited for your mood.
Prefer multiple colors

Should have a WiFi connection
WIFI-enabled smart LED light strips may be linked to a network. The lighting pattern can be changed using a remote control, an app on a mobile device, or voice control. The non-smart strip lights can only be controlled with remote control. It is entirely up to you whether or not you buy a smart model, depending on your own personal requirements. Smart devices are handy and simple if you have a voice assistant or prefer using a smartphone app to interact with them. Remote control will suffice if you only plan on using the device occasionally. Alternatively, you may choose the simple strips at a cheaper price.
