Twinkly PRO and Plus presentation and features comparison between Twinkly, Twinkly Plus and Twinkly PRO.
Applies to Twinkly PRO and Twinkly Plus devices.
What is Twinkly PRO?
Twinkly PRO (Ethernet Controllers) is a line primarily dedicated to professional use and its technology has been developed to create big light installations.
It has been designed specifically for outdoor use, with a watertight case capable of resisting even the worst weather conditions.
The LEDs are bigger and stronger and Twinkly and the LEDs are more widely spaced from each other.
PRO technology has also been developed to create animated effects intended also for larger surfaces.
Twinkly PRO Wi-Fi has a Wi-FI controller, so in terms of configuration and features, it works pretty much as Twinkly retails with a few extra features, such as multi-port controllers, increased resistance (it is IP65), and compatibility with the PRO range of LEDs.
What is Twinkly Plus?
Twinkly Plus is the meeting point of PRO Ethernet controllers and retail products and has been conceived as the result of our customer’s needs and feedback.
For example, the new model is compatible also with Android, as the retail products, but works with both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity; moreover, different products, such as Bulbs and Curtains, can be connected to the 4 ports on the controller, making it possible to create an installation with different LEDs using just one controller, power supply and power outlet.
It has been thought of for simple and smaller professional installations, using Twinkly LEDs technology, without needing a major network structure.

What are the compatibility criteria between Twinkly PRO, Plus, and Retails?
Twinkly PRO Ethernet is not compatible with Twinkly PRO Wi-Fi, Twinkly Plus and Twinkly retails; you will not be able to create a group, nor use retail strings with PRO controllers.
Twinkly Wi-Fi and Plus, instead, are compatible with Twinkly Retail: you will be able to create a group via the App, however, you will notice a difference in colors and brightness because their LEDs are different (same as Twinkly PRO)
You can create multi-controller groups, but remember that you can only do this with controllers of the same model (PLC Controller with PLC Controller and SPI controller with SPI Controller).
