Twinkly is one of the world’s most advanced decorative lighting systems giving the user control over both the colour and functions of their lights through a dedicated smartphone (or tablet) app. The range started with tree lights and has grown to include icicles, festoons, curtain and cluster lights, all capable of amazing effects and animations.
Twinkly Pro – a version of the system exclusively designed for large-scale professional lighting installations – was successfully introduced at selected projects throughout the country in 2019. The vision was to have the ability to control entire displays, even whole towns, remotely. Thanks to Twinkly’s clever use of 3/4G internet controllers and cloud-based platform, this is now a reality and ready to launch fully in 2020.
Festive Lights, which is the dedicated UK supplier for Twinkly, will be showcasing Twinkly Pro exclusively at Harrogate this year. Don’t miss the display in the entrance to Hall Q. Visit Twinkly on Stand Q6
