Here’s how to install your LED tape plug & play kit. You’ll need the following equipment:

  • RGB Wireless Controller and Receiver
  • RGB LED tape – cut to length by InStyle
  • A plugin transformer
  • Screwdriver
  • Double-sided backing tape


Now you’re ready to get started:

  • Begin by wiring your transformer to the controller receiver. (Be sure to run the positive cable to the ‘+’ pad, and the negative cable to the ‘–‘ pad.)
  • Now wire your RGB LED tape to the controller receiver’s output. Black cable goes to ‘V+’, red goes to ‘R’, green goes to ‘G’ and  blue goes to ‘B’.
  • Next, cut and peel your double-sided backing tape, and apply to the transformer and the controller receiver. Then stick both units into place, out of sight.
  • It’s time to install your RGB LED tape now. So peel the backing from your LED tape… and stick it into position.
  • …And you’re ready to plug the transformer into a standard wall-socket and switch on your LED lights.

Now you can light up and see the results! You can now adjust and control the LEDs using your wireless remote controller.
