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 DMX: 4, 7, or 8 Channel Modes (Ape Labs Connect or W-App required, 3900ft Range)
  • Wireless KMX (Ape Labs Connect or W-App required, 3900ft Range)
  • Wireless Android / iOS App (Ape Labs Connect or W-App required, 3900ft Range)

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.

Color aW aW R R G G B B

10° 10,500 2,250 9,225 2,565 13,350 3,880 17,550 3,730
15° 8,500 1,880 7,580 1,815 9,275 2,625 11,200 2,990
