Being able to control your home's lighting is one of the key aspects to creating a comfortable, cozy existence — and a great way to add a little fun.

"Extremely versatile lights," wrote a five-star fan. "I have a few pairs of these. Some are on my TVs, offering delightful backlighting. In my bedroom I mounted a pair up in my window. I have it linked with all my other lights in my room and it works fantastically with the scheduling and automation. ... I like some of the different modes and animations. Rainbows stream is my favorite."

Amp up your outdoor hangs with these string lights. They come with 48 feet of IP65 weather-resistant bulbs. Create your own color design or choose from 40+ preset scenes. And you can always just set them as chill, regular ol' white lights.

Outdoor lights need to be both durable and nice to look at, and these Govee String Lights are both. With 47 different scenes to choose from (and a music mode), these lights will keep your patio or porch lit up to suit your mood — no matter what that might be.

"These lights are perfect! So many options within the app to change the colors and settings… you can even change each bulb to a different color! You will love them!" one user raved.

This 65.4-foot length of strip lights can run under a couch, around the back of a desk, or even along your floorboards to diffuse light and create a unique ambiance in any room.

Strip lighting is an affordable, easy way to create ambiance throughout your entire space. This 65.4-foot length of LED lights is normally $66, but you can pick it up for $21 off right now. It's easy to control through a smart app or Alexa, and there's a sticky adhesive on the back that makes it easy to connect to almost any surface. You can also add another length to extend them.

One customer said, "These are far and away the best strip lights I've used. Nice and bright, easy to sync with the app, and endless options for lighting schemes. I'm impressed."

Got a dark room? Govee's night light doubles as a table lamp, sound machine and Bluetooth speaker with more than 60 music modes. You can even use the light for a gentle wake-up in the morning.

"Cute and fun," said a happy customer. "I was most interested in this light's white noise feature. There are 21 different sounds to choose from and the majority of them are relaxing. I've had great success with the thunderstorm, wind or waterfall sounds. There is also a function for a gradual alarm. The light and sound of your choice gradually increases over 15-ish minutes allowing you to wake up more naturally. This is a real game changer for me. It's so much nicer than being jolted out of sleep by a noisy alarm. Between these two features, I'm getting better sleep."

Connect these light panels together and create any shape you can imagine. Right now, they're $60 off, which brings the price down to just $12 per panel.

"When my son mentioned that he wanted these for his game room, I was hesitant to spend a ton of money on lights. Boy, was I wrong. These lights are so impressive, I'd like a set in my room. Very easy to put up and so bright! You hardly need a lamp when these are on. Many light modes/colors to choose from. These are a great addition to any room!" said one parent.

Attach this light kit to the back of your TV and you'll feel like the screen is creeping out of the edges of your set. It increases the ambience and makes TV viewing sessions so much more enjoyable.

The Govee TV Backlight makes it feel like your TV is extending outside the edges of the display — plus, it eases some of the eye strain during those long binging sessions. Besides just improving the ambience, this kit can add a modern feel to older TVs.

"I had cheaper lights on my TV and upgraded to these. There's so many options for changing color, different settings and even setting timers. I bought two more and added them to all of my TVs. Highly recommend," one five-star fan said.
