How do you correcyly measure light temperature?

I am trying to learn if my LED strip I ordered is wrong color or not. I ordered 2700k color bright LED but but visually it looks like 3100k. I am trying to figure out if it just looks like that (3100k instead of 2700k) because I am too close to it or if I actually got wrong color. And when I use android light meter app it also tells me 3100k. I ask because I am wondering if distance affects the color temperature? Like does it come warmer as distance increases or should it stay the same? What is photography standard for checking lightsources? Is there some standard like 1 meter distance from source or any other standard?
