Difference between WiFi LED controller and Bluetooth LED controller

WiFi and Bluetooth are the two important methods of wireless communication that are often used in our everyday lives. The following differences between the two methods are the major features that differentiate WiFi controller and Bluetooth LED controller.

1. Network. Via WiFi communication, two devices such as mobile phone and WiFi LED controller need to join a common network, Internet or Ethernet (LAN). Bluetooth communication does not require a network. Bluetooth enables two devices to communicate directly, and the two devices can also set up their own networks.

2. Remote control. The WiFi controller can be connected to the Internet for true remote control of the light strip. For example, you can control your home light strip when you are in the office. Bluetooth does not connect to the Internet, so there is no such feature.

3. Control distance. Bluetooth was created for short-distance data exchange of personal devices such as cell phone and Bluetooth controller, at a distance of 30 ft. While WiFi signal has a coverage range of 300 ft, which is much larger than Bluetooth.

There are many types of WiFi controllers, and each application is different. Here we take one of them as an example to illustrate the use of the software.
