All Ape Labs lighting fixtures are sold à la carte so users don’t end up paying for accessories that they don’t use. However, bundle discounts are available at participating retail stores. Since all Ape Labs products use the same power supply, remote control, DMX transmitter, and Smart App, users are free to mix and match Ape Labs products and accessories to fit their needs.

Enjoy a unique lighting fixture, the size of an energy drink!

The Can is the ideal product to create a quick and easy lighting atmosphere. Use it for everything from mobile production events to simple home use. The auto programs, colors, and speeds offer the perfect lighting for any event. Sound active mode is controlled by the internal microphone, which adapts automatically to the volume.

This professional LED effect light lasts at least eight hours with one battery charge. But if you forget to charge your Cans, it’s not a problem! Just unscrew the bottom and swap out the included rechargeable batteries for standard AA batteries to get thru your gig.

Because of the splash-proof design, the Can is suitable for (temporary) outdoor use. And since they are made of aircraft aluminum, they are extremely durable.

The available Ape Remote is a unique accessory. By letting users create up to four separate groups with various SKUs, this simple remote allows users to create lighting shows similar to those made with DMX controllers. Since it’s 2.4GHz, it’s not directional . Just select the lighting group during setup, and you can control the lights from anywhere in the room. Want to control all four groups at the same time? No problem. A long press on the group button (two seconds) will light up all four “Group LEDs” on the remote. This lets you control all groups at the same time—until you hit the group button again for individual control.

The W-Ape (and W-App) is more than the typical transceiver. First of all, the wireless DMX range is 3,000 feet. Second, you can pair it with a DMX controller, pair it with the Ape Remote (to extend its range), or just use the on-board display to control the fixtures. Third, the unique wireless connection between the Ape Labs fixtures and the W-Ape allows users to set DMX channels and other fixture settings directly on the W-Ape. This means the fixtures themselves don’t need any LCD or buttons. This is incredibly beneficial because it simplifies the fixture designs, making them extremely reliable and extremely easy for an inexperience user to set up and operate. Finally, the built-in microphone in the W-Ape can be used instead of the individual microphone on each fixture during sound active mode, if the user would like all fixtures to be synchronized.
