Purchased the 32’ light strip to place around my headboard and bottom side rails, and installed preliminarily using small pieces of painters tape just to make sure I liked the placement and the lights. After a week of using them, went back and peeled off the adhesive strip and applied more securely. The remote works surprisingly well. Adhesive strip seems solid. This video is an example of the lights set to slow color change. Happy with my purchase thus far. Cannot judge the longevity yet.
