You have your choice of setting them to a single color, or you can choose from one of the patterns. The sound-activated pattern is very fun for your dance/party time.

It depends. :) Check out this guide for help deciding how many lights you'll need.

Our lights are intended for indoor use, but can be used outdoors in clean, dry conditions. If you need lights that can stay outside and survive the elements, please contact us.

The reason we're able to save you money is because you'll set the lights up yourself (or have a friend do it for you). They're super easy to use and no prior experience is necessary.
