2-Waterproof and Non-Waterproof: The reason why LED strip lights can be used as both interior and exterior decoration material is that they also have waterproof features. You can still choose the waterproof LED strip lights for indoors, which give a wonderful new look to your decoration. Particularly, in areas that may be exposed to water splashes such as kitchens and bathrooms. However, bear in mind, the non-waterproof led strip lights have a quicker heat dissipation, as they are not covered by a silicone gel. That makes their lifespan much longer than waterproof types. Briefly, always try to use non-waterproof, if they can be kept away from water or moisture.


Most common waterproof LED strip lights have an IP65 rating with a silicone resin material and are protected from dust and moisture. And non-waterproof grades are generally rated as IP20.
