This free mobile app allows the user to control the lights by selecting colors through a color wheel, choosing pre-programmed flash patterns and colors, an option to flash colors with music, and even has a timer to select when to turn on and off a specific pattern or color. Up to eight accent lights can be added per control box. Heise is also introducing convenient and competitively priced four-pack or eight-pack kits, both available in white or black housing options. The black four-pack kit (HE-4TLRGBK) includes four of the black RGB accent lights and one control box. The white four-pack kit (HE-4MLRGBK) includes the same, except in white.
