I recently tried out Govee’s Neon Rope Light 2, a significant upgrade from its predecessor, now featuring Matter compatibility. The idea of enhancing the ambiance of my office space with these smart lights was quite appealing, so let’s dive into what sets them apart.

Govee has been a well-known player in the lighting industry for several years, providing a budget-friendly alternative to more expensive options like Philips Hue or Nanoleaf. Yet while there are plenty of products that all these brands match each other on, the idea of a customizable rope strip light is unique to Govee out of the three. Other brands like Cync do have their own rope-like alternatives too, but Govee is making its own offering even better with the second-generation.
