Question PC Case Fan Controller mixed up with light strips

Mar 19, 2020
i had bought some light strips for my desk and they had been working fine, then i got a new pc including rgb fans, although the rgb fan controller remote was exactly the same as the one i got with my light strips so if i use either remote to turn on my light strips, the only thing it detects is the fan colours. For example, if i go to my light strip remote to turn it on, my case fans will turn on instead. everything i do on the remote the pc case fans pick up but not the light strips because they are the same remote
