Frequently Asked Questions

Do Govee Lights Turn Off Automatically?

Govee Lights usually turn off automatically after a set amount of time has passed without being activated. By default, this timer is set to 30 minutes, but you can change it if necessary. There is also a switch on the back of each light that allows you to manually turn it on or off.

Can You Leave Govee Led Lights on Overnight?

There is no definitive answer as to whether or not you can leave Govee Led Lights on overnight, as it depends on the specific model and light configuration.

However, generally speaking, LED lights do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials that could pose a health risk if left turned on for an extended period of time.

In fact, most LED lights are designed to last between 10-30 years without needing any type of maintenance – so long as they’re properly installed and used in accordance with manufacturer guidelines.

Why Shouldn’t You Sleep With Red Led Lights on?

Red light radiation (RLR) has been shown to have negative effects on the body and mind, including insomnia. RLR is emitted from screens in phones and other electronic devices soon after they are turned on. It stimulates the release of stress hormones such as cortisol, which can affect sleep patterns.

Additionally, studies have found that exposure to RLR over a long period of time can lead to changes in brain activity and perception. This could impact cognitive function, moods, and overall learning capabilities. So if you’re struggling with poor sleep or want to avoid any negative side effects associated with screen use during bedtime hours, it’s best not to sleep with red lights shining directly onto your eyes!

Can Govee Led Lights Catch on Fire?

Govee Led Lights have been used in a wide variety of applications, such as home and office lighting, retail displays, and car lighting. However, there is no guarantee that Govee Led Lights will not catch on fire. If a fire does occur, the Led Lights will not be safe to use.
