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 into up to four groups. The user is then 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 the total number of Ape Labs fixtures to build a constantly evolving light show. Just don’t call it “Sound Active”.

  • Wireless DMX: 4, 7, or 8 Channel Modes (W-App / Connect required, 3900 ft range)
  • Wireless KNX (W-App / Connect required, 3900 ft range)
  • Wireless Android / iOS App (W-App / Connect required, 3900 ft range)
  • Wireless remote control (ApeRemote required, 200 ft range)
  • Wireless range increases as more fixtures are added since all lights repeat the signal
  • Pairing is possible with ApeRemotes or W-App/Connects to increase the number of groups or universes in the room
  • W-App/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

Photometric Data:

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.
