Control / Operation:
Ape Labs is known to "Keep it Simple" when it comes to controlling lights. A beginner with no instructions can typically operate an Ape Labs fixture within seconds of picking up an ApeRemote or opening the app. But its simplicity does not lack in features. Two of the most famous features are "Grouping" and "MusikMode".
Grouping allows the user to create DMX-Like shows on the fly by grouping any number of mixed & matched Ape Labs SKUs on up to four groups. Then being able to control groups individually or universally.
MusikMode will automatically create a music-based light show with the press of a button. It uses proprietary technology that analyzes the sound in the room and total number of Ape Labs fixtures to build a constantly evolving light show. Just don't call it "Sound Active".
Wireless Lighting Control Specs:
- Wireless DMX: 4, 7, or 8 Channel Modes (W-App / Connect required, 5,300ft Range)
- Wireless KNX (W-App / Connect required, 5,300ft Range)
- Wireless Android / iOS App (W-App / Connect required, 5,300ft Range)
- Wireless Remote Control (ApeRemote required, 200ft Range)
- Wireless range increases as more fixtures are added since all lights repeat the signal

- Ape Labs Connect will save settings and programs to the cloud for cross device operations or community sharing
- Free software/firmware updates via W-App or Connect

When comparing Ape Labs LUX values to competitor values, make sure to look at single color ratings. If only a single LUX value is given for a fixture, it's most likely an "All On" rating. This means that every color is combined when rating.
The Ape Labs Maxi 2.0 IP comes standard with 15° optics, but three alternative optics are available. Below are the LUX ratings for each color, with each beam angle, at both 1m and 2m distances.
**With standard 15 degree optics, the Maxi 2.0 LUX ratings average 247% (or 2.47x brighter than) the original Maxi @2m

APE LABS BUYING GUIDE
WHAT'S IN THE BOX? Ape Labs lights are sold in three popular forms:
- "SOLO" means you're only getting the light itself, without the remote or charger. Wireless control is essential for all Ape Labs products, and a charger of some sort is needed for all battery-powered fixtures. Therefore, "SOLO" purchases will require additional accessories that are not included in the package to use your light. However, the Ape Labs ApeRemote and/or Connect App can control an unlimited number of Ape Labs SKUs and are compatible with every product on the market. Similarly, the PSU and/or Super Charger will power/charge every Ape Labs mobile product. SKU-specific charging cases are also available. Reusing accessories for multiple lights can reduce investment costs.
- "SETS" (such as a "Set of 2" or "Set of 4") include the universal remote and enough power supplies charge all of the lights in the listed set. The package does not include a bag or case, though.
- "PACKS" (such as a "RoadPack" or "TourPack") include the universal remote, a case or bag, and a way to charge all fixtures. The Flight Cases have integrated power supplies built-in, so external power supplies aren't necessary. However, buying a "PACK" will always include a way to charge every fixture.
