If you want to light up your entire home on any holiday or special occasion, the Startastic Max system has been created to enable you to do so. Each system consists of a globe on a stake that, once installed in your yard, is meant to project thousands of LED lights towards your home. If pointed in the right direction, it should light up the entire front and both sides so that your neighbors and other passers-by will be able to see your light show from the road.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Install In Yard

    To install your Startastic Max system, drive its stake (with the globe on top) into your chosen place in your yard. Keep in mind that the part of the globe that lights up must be facing your house. If you point it away from your house by accident, your festive lights will show up somewhere else besides the outer walls of your home. After you've driven your stake into the ground, give it a gentle wiggle to make sure it's in there securely and won't fall out of position.

  2. Select Light Show

    Next, turn your lighting system on with the included remote control and use the remote to select one of the 60 available light shows. You'll have a choice between lights moving upward, lights moving downward, dancing lights or still lights. Within the variety of light shows offered, you'll be able to display lights in red, green, blue, and white, or some combination of those four shades. Your selected show can be quickly changed from inside or outside your home, at any time, if you tire of the one you've picked.

  3. Enjoy Festive Light

    Once you've turned on your system and have selected a show, the Startastic system will automatically turn on when it gets dark each night. You'll be able to enjoy brilliant decorative light each time you return to your home in the evening, without doing a thing. Plus, as you sit indoors, you can rest assured that anyone outside is catching a glimpse of your chosen show.


  • Suitable for Various Holidays

    Many people may find this system's green, red, blue and white lights ideal for Christmas, but that's not the only holiday that each Startastic Max system is good for. In the early spring, you might want to display green lights on their own for St. Patrick's Day and then select a red, white and blue light show for the Fourth of July in the summer. Along the same lines, Canadian users may select a show that features just white and red lights, or lights in just one of those shades, for Canada Day.

  • Rotating Globe

    The reason that this system's lights can move upward or downward and dance is the fact that its globe is capable of rotating. In fact, unless you choose a show in which the lights are meant to be still, it'll continuously rotate to create the movement and effect you desire. The only way to stop its rotation at night will be to turn off the entire system or select a different show that doesn't involve moving lights.

  • Water and Cold Resistant

    Each Startastic Max system is resistant to potential damage from water and cold weather, which means that it's safe to use outdoors, even if you frequently experience rain or snow in your area. Your system will actually be able to withstand temperatures up to minus 35 degrees Fahrenheit, so you won't need to worry about bringing it indoors on a chilly night.

  • Energy Efficient

    In comparison to standard strands of holiday lights that you'd hang up outside your home, it's claimed that this lighting system will use 99 percent less electrical energy. As a result, your electricity bills may be lowered if you use just this system without adding any additional strands of lights to your holiday decor. Furthermore, the system's lights are of the LED variety, so all of them may last you for years or perhaps even decades without burning out.

Positive Points

  • Can Use Indoors

    The Startastic Max lighting system has been designed with outdoor use in mind, but you'll also be able to plug your system into an electrical outlet and use it indoors if you'd like. If you need something to put your stake into, a potted plant would be a good choice. Just remember to turn on your system somewhere that's not close to your sleeping area, so its LED lights don't keep you awake while you're in bed.

  • Good For Parties

    Even if it's not a holiday, if you're having a party at your home, you may want to turn on this lighting system. At nighttime, if you have a big yard or pool and there are lots of kids around, the illumination it'll give off will help keep them safe. Moreover, if you select a show that involves dancing lights, your system may encourage guests who'd otherwise sit around to get up and dance together.

Negative Points

  • Requires Electricity

    Although you can theoretically install your system's stake anywhere in your yard, you'll need to put it near an electrical outlet or create a chain of electrical cords in order to plug it in. If there are few electrical outlets outside your home, or you have a big property and want to place your stake far from the house, the need for an outlet may become a hassle. Unfortunately, it appears that running one of these lighting systems with batteries only is not an option.

  • Could Annoy Neighbors

    While your neighbors may be impressed by the light show(s) coming from your home, some of your closest neighbors could get annoyed by your decor, especially if they've got bedroom windows that face your house. What's more, once a Startastic Max system is powered up, there's no way to stop its lights from automatically turning on every night. Therefore, to satisfy an irritated neighbor, you might actually find yourself manually turning your whole system on and off at certain times, instead of just letting it run.

Critical Advice

If you're in an area that gets a lot of snow, and you're using one of these lighting systems in the winter, you may have to clean its globe off regularly. When covered with snow, it may not be able to project lights onto the walls of your house as effectively as usual, so you may see fewer lights or none at all. To clean the globe off, it's best to gently brush it off with a gloved hand instead of using a shovel. Similarly, if the globe's covered in rain, you should wipe it off with a dry cloth, or the water may interfere with the appearance of your light show.

Limited Working Time

The laser didn't last a week. Stopped working and would not turn on. Bought 2 for the 2020 Xmas holiday. Installed on November 30, 2020 in my yard. One stopped working on December 6, 2020. The other stopped on December 7, 2020. The lights were great while it worked. Very different from others I have seen with all the different colors, motions, and effects. Would not recommend it for purchase. Very disappointing.
