Varilight 1 Gang Multi-Way 400W Touch Dimming Slave Dimmer
Does work if you fit correctly
To the two 1 star reviews, this clearly states that it's a slave, and has to be used with a master in multi way- wire it as a 1-way switch, you're out of luck. Buy the master.
It's really unusual to find multi-way dimmers, and it's extremely useful if people change the settings; no more running across the room to correct.
Wiring wise, brown to live, the black "common" is the slave connection, the blue/grey goes to neutral. Not very clear in the instructions, or maybe I'm being dense.

Products do not work for me
I purchased 2 dimmers, which arrived today. Connected both up to different lights as per the fitting instructions. Went to initialise the switches IAW the instructions and neither work. I have contacted the manufacturer and am awaiting a reply.

Bought and fitted did not work, tried all sorts of tricks to try and get it working, no luck.
Nothing wrong in the way it looks or how it was made,
Looks good on the wall, maybe I was unlucky,
Took it back and got a push and turn. was disappointed it did not do the job.
Staff at Screwfix Paisley was exhalent to deal with, had a good laugh about it

Not bad for price
Bought 2 of these to go with master unit. On opening two different versions, one had mechanism screwed to front plate, the other was sort of glued on and fell off when trying to fit to back box. Time will tell on reliability. Cheap quality feel and look to unit, will be taking one back to swap.
