Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor and unstable dimming This came with inadequate instructions in the first place especially about the knob removal. The main issue is that the voltage output is unstable, sometimes leading to flashing of the lights. Also it jumps from very dim to 70% in one step so has a limited useful range. I have checked that my bulbs are dimmable. Planning to replace this soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Now on my third one. Controlling power to a light fitting with 4 X GU10 50 watt lamp. Previous ones have blown whenever a GU10 lamp fails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product 1.5 years on Had these for over a year and half. Brilliant product for the price. Re decorating is so much easier as only pull dimming knob of and pop face plate of and ready to paint. Still going strong on 200+ watt load

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Dimmer Switch Excellent dimmer switch, easily installed in a few minutes. Build quality seems very good, time will tell if it lasts. Only slight issue was that the screws were too long but just used old ones and kept these for future use.

Two switch

I want to use 2 in one room for one led light dimmable . Is this possible?
Asked by: Pablo2109
Hello Pablo2109, This product is not an intermediate switch and so would not be suitable for your needs. It's also Leading Edge so you would need to make sure your LED's are designed to work with a Leading Edge dimmer as most are designed for Trailing Edge dimmers. Thank you for using Q&A (CW)
