1-Gang 1-Way Dimmer Switch Chrome with Black Insert 250W
Great Home Automation Product
Bought a couple of these 1-Gang Dimmer switches last year when I switched to LED lighting in my living room and family room. Together with the Wi-Fi Link unit (also bought from Screwfix), I'm able to operate lighting using the LightwaveRF Manager app which I downloaded to my iPad, iPhone, and Android phone. I found the instructions to pair the switch with the Wi-Fi link to be straightforward, not complicated at all.
When I go on holidays, I'm able to program when the lights will go on/off, using the LightwaveRF manager app. The app allows a multitude of combinations as to when to operate the lights, which serves as a great security feature.
Since I also installed a D-Link wireless IP camera, I'm able to view the rooms whilst away from home (using a D-Link app). Combined with LightwaveRF app, I can check the rooms even at night (by turning on the lights as I please). It's almost like popping in at home, but doing it from the confines of the hotel room.
I highly recommend having these light switches and the WiFi Link as additional home security features. And having compared the prices online, Screwfix offers the best prices (well, that was the case last year when there were only a few suppliers, but I'm sure Screwfix will no doubt rise to the challenge).
