The speed can be set to slow, where the lights turn on one at a time looking as though they are slowly moving across the object on which they are placed, or fast so they appear to be a constant flashing stream of light.

Winter light covers can be used indoors as well as outdoors. The light covers have a hole in the bottom of the globe so that moisture is not trapped inside causing the lights to fog up.
