Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dimmer switch Very good product easy to fit following the enclosed instructions.I was worried at first as it said it had a maximum load of 400 watts but when reading the enclosed leaflet it stated maximum load 300 watts and my load was going to be 360 watts.Your help line was very helpful and they checked it through and it was 400 watts so I fitted it and it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great LED dimmer Originally brought another brand and had lots of problems with buzzing and flickering lamps. Brought 2 of these as replacements and they worked great, solving my issue. Easy to change brightness and modes if needed. Will definitely use them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dimmer but read the book Bought this dimmer specifically for dimmable LED bulbs. Once set up it works really well but it wasn't simple for my LED bulbs. The instructions state that it is shipped in MODE 1 but this one was in MODE 2. Once the correct mode for the lights was selected this dimmer worked perfectly. It is a bit of a faf checking and changing the modes but if you follow the instructions (to the letter) it is great. Totally dimmable LED bulbs with no buzzing or flickering. I've rated the reliability as 3 because I don't know as it's new.

Plaster depth box use

Will this dimmer fit in a plaster depth box without any additional spacing device?
Asked by: DIYXpert
Hello DIYXpert, thanks for your question. The recommended back box depth for this dimmer is 25mm, so anything this deep or deeper will be fine. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Can I use this dimmer in a 3 way switching circuit, with the other 2 switches being normal on/off switches

Asked by: RR53
Yes but you will need a two way and a intermediate switches, and it will switch on at the seting your dimmer is set.

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.
