Rated 2 out of 5 by from BG are superior in every way Didn't realise until it was in how bulky this switch is, and how it was the only switch in the house that didn't take screw caps. After a couple of weeks, stopped actually dimming our spotlights and flickered when dimming the pendant. Replaced with a BG Nexus switch which turned out to be superior in every way. Compared to that, this Varilight was hard to rotate, slow to turn on and slow to respond to dimming. And the BG switch is slimmer, cheaper, and has screw caps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perhaps too many features? Perhaps too many features? The number of configuartion options over-complicates the installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cured badly behaved LED's Used this In place of a recent BG Leading edge double dimmer. The dimmable LED lights were flickering In the bathroom. The Varilight dimmer didn't quite function first off as expected but did actually reduce the flickering of all 3 bulbs to just 1. The dimmer is factory set to Mode 1. I found that using Mode 3 made no difference also. I then used Mode 2 and that cured the problem. I'm happy for my customer and she's pleased that Varilight offer a 10yr guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, but too thick! We purchased this to replace an old dimmer switch, which not only didn’t work with LED bulbs correctly, it also had become stuck on permanently, the push button on/off function had become stuck. Before you do anything with mains voltage, it’s crucially important to always isolate the circuit from the breaker. If there is a switch on another circuit directly next to where you’re working, as it was with my case, also isolate this circuit! Getting shocked isn’t nice and it could kill you. Have it professionally installed if you are not comfortable working with electrical circuits. After purchasing this dimmer, and removing the old one, to my horror, the old dimmer was slightly thinner. That meant this model did not fit due to the back box depth! Luckily I noticed that the faceplate on the old dimmer came out further from the wall. So I removed actual modules and knobs from this new dimmer and transplanted them onto the old dimmer faceplate. This gave enough depth clearance to install the new dimmer switch. Installation was as simple as copying the existing wiring. It works perfectly with the two-way switching, and the dimmable range is much wider than that of our old dimmer. It also gradually fades in the light when switching on which is another nice modern touch. Programming the dimmer isn’t normally required, but Varilight have tutorials on YouTube which you can perform in real-time whilst watching them to program this switch. I highly recommend this model.

VAILIGHT V-PRO 2-GANG 2-WAY LED DIMMER SWITCH WHITE (98455)

The info says that you have the option of either 'Leading Edge or Trailing Edge' for this switch, Is the 'Option' built into the switch so you can select which option you want, or when purchasing this switch you have to state which you want?. Thanks
Asked by: Rockjoc
It's built into it. Via some specific button hitting you can change from one to the other.

Can you disable or shorten the slow start feature?

The slow start must be a second or more as it's very noticeable. Can you disable this or shorten the time? if not do you have an alternative trailing edge dimmer without slow start and ideally with programmable minimum brightness?
Asked by: Sparky2345
Hello, thanks for your message. Unfortunately you cannot disable the soft start on our intelligent dimmers, as it's crucial to extending the lifespan of your circuit. The dimmer will always be delivering full power within a second, so you shouldn't experience it taking more than a second. If you do it's likely your LEDs are taking their time reading the signal being sent. If you could put a halogen in the circuit to stabilise the load temporarily you will see the true output of the dimmer. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

How many LEDs?

Can this support 8 50w LEDs (4 on each gang)? Or is the maximum wattage 240 in total for LEDs?
Asked by: jh80
Hello jh80, thanks for your message. The maximum per gang is 120W, so 200W would be overloaded. It is very unusual to have a 50W LED in a domestic installation though, so may be worth re-checking your load if it's a GU10 or E27 lamp or similar. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.
