Mine does not have a button for this so I am wondering if it is just the set I got or whether that has to be programmed via the DIY button on the remote.
As I understand it, the DIY feature is to create a "custom color" using the colored up down buttons and save it by holding the button down for 3 seconds. Kind of silly feature, IMO.

As to "chase" it is not available as to how the LEDs are wired. With a common ground leg and three "hot" legs (one for each color) the only options you have from the controller for each color is "ON - FULL VOLTAGE" ; "ON - "LESS VOLTAGE" ; "OFF."

To provide "CHASE" the LED sets must be wired so as to be independently controlled (2 or 3 grounds in addition to the 3 hots - connecting to alternating sets of LEDs).

Even dimmed on the lowest setting there still pretty bright.
Bought mine from a local distributor on Baton Rouge. same #'s as the ones on ebay. 5050 + whatever. These were supposed to have had a sound button to sync them to music. Never got that far with them. Wish they would have worked out though. Will keep lookin. I see where HERK put 2 strips below one another. Maybe that's what I should have done.

Hope this helps

kust wanted to say I have been camping for the past 4 weeks at 3 different camp grounds and given out the number for the led awning lights 7 times !
what a success !

The most liked benefit was the ability to roll them up in the awning (for those of us who installed them there ) .

I'm looking at tying two of the 5m SMD5050 LED strips together with 300 LEDs each - however, looking at the specs of the LED strip, power supply and controller I have a concern with tying two of the 300 LED strips together.

Each SMD5050 300 LED strip is rated for 6A current draw, the power supply is rated for 5A and the controller is rated for 6A. Two of the LED strips would draw 12A.

For those that tied two strips together off the same controller and power supply - did you use two of the SMD5050 300 LED strips, two of the SMD5050 150 LED strips or two of the SMD3528 300 LED strips?

You can tie two together

How did you mount yours again? Did you just slide them in the groove on the bar? I thought about using double sided tape and mounting them on the outside of the awning tube. I'm afraid it would stretch out the fabric and leave imprints when rolled up. I've had mine for 4 weeks or so and just haven't had the time to get out there and mount them. I think I'd prefer them on the awning tube though.
