Recommendation for good quality waterproof RGBW LED strips?

Hi there, we’re looking to mount external LED strip lights quite high up (double storey eaves) and so wish to do so with quality strips so as to not have to replace too often.

These would be exposed to weather and the elements, so a suitable IP rating would be sought.

Basically one 5 meter length per side of house, each driven separately so there should be few voltage drop issues (though leaning towards 24V for higher light output?). As they are so high up, higher light output would be preferred, but as these are supplementing existing lighting, it’s not critical to squeeze every lumen out. Far more important for quality componentry and not overdriven to ensure longevity.

There are many apparently suitable strips on the market but we would be very interested in your views for strips you might have used before? Feedback much appreciated!

Looking at Flexfire RGBW strips – anyone had any experience with the company? High prices but seemingly good stats?
