Rated 5 out of 5 by from great priced dimmer switch great priced dimmer switch that works well with LED's. No buzz or humming not matter what level the lights are dimmed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product This is the second one that I have purchased. The first one for 8 led bulbs worked without the need to adjust. The second for one 10w led bulb only dimmed slightly and the adjustment of the minimum setting did not seem to work as during the programming it did the three stage dimming to show that it was activated but did not then turn off and back one that is the next step - it instead immediately went back to full brightness. I tried this several times and then tried changing it to the second type of setting (for Les builds) and that worked perfectly and it dimmed very low without flicker. Perhaps the fact that there was only one 10w build stopped the first setting from adjusting. The outer plate could be nicer and when adjusting there is a lag. I have a mk one also and the plate is nicer and less lag (it has the lag when you turn it on that is normal but not so much of a lag during adjustment), However this is used to power 15 led down lighters so perhaps this makes a difference. Also not sure whether the mk can be programmed as it worked straight away - i.e I have not checked. Having said that this dimmer is less than half price of the mk and I would recommend as there is no flicker or buzz. Gave it five stars for reliability but only owned for a few weeks - however no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Switch This is a great priced dimmer switch that works well with LED's. No buzz or humming not matter what level the lights are dimmed to. The only issue is the length of time it takes for the initial power on to bring the lights on. This takes a few seconds but I can live with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product. A very well made switch both front and back. Very easy to fix it on. There is a short delay when you switch it on during which time the light is dull but it only takes a few seconds to lighten up. Tried halogen and led bulbs but it is happier running a conventional one.

Does this come with a a pattress/adaptor to allow it to be fitted in an existing 16mm back box

I believe the similar MK dimmer includes such an adaptor

No instructions found on Varilight website on how to adjust dimmer for LED lamps. My sister has thrown the original instructions away and because the first lamps were non LED the problem of flickering didn't exist.

Just need basic instruction on how to adjust the dimmer?
Asked by: JJBoy
Hi JJBoy, thanks for your question. The instruction leaflet can be found on the Varilight website under Technical-Instruction Leaflets-V-Pro Intelligent Dimmers. You will want to look at the sections titled 'How to change your driving mode' and 'How to perform a factory reset'. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Switch on state

When the knob is pushed to turn the lights on, do they come on at full power requiring you to turn them down, or do they come on at the level previously set prior to switch off?
Asked by: TheOldManse
Hello TheOldManse, thanks for your question. They come on at whatever level the knob is set to at the off position, full brightness, minimum brightness, or anywhere in between. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Does this switch make the leds buzz?

Asked by: Westhammer
Hi Westhammer, thanks for your question. There is nothing in this dimmer that can make LEDs buzz, and if your LEDs are buzzing under any dimming load, there is a fault in that particular lamp, and should be replaced. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Asked by: Elec17
