Yes! The button on the control module for the Hombli Smart LED Strip will turn on the strip, without having to use the app.
This depends on the type of dimmer, in general, the older dimmers cannot handle smart light. If you have already installed an older dimmer, you can still use your Hombli Smart LED Strip by leaving the dimmer completely open. The dimming of the light can be fully controlled after installation via the Hombli app, or if you use Alexa or Google Home, for example, via speech.
The Hombli Smart LED Strip has arrows to indicate safe spots to cut the cord.

Check if the distance between your router and your Hombli smart lighting isn’t too far away. If the WiFi signal is not strong enough at the location of the Hombli smart light, the connection can sometimes drop. The best solution is to change the location of the router or to place WiFi extenders between the router and the lighting.
