Dim CFL and LED Lights With Ease

September 3, 2011 Leave a comment

Energy-saving compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) and LED bulbs are quickly becoming standard in most homes. However, standard dimmers may not deliver the most reliable performance with CFL and LED bulbs. Lamps may “drop out” or turn off before the dimmer has reached the lowest setting. Voltage fluctuations within low light levels can also cause dimmers to turn the lamps off.Lutron DVWCL-153PH-AL Diva Dimmable CFL/LED Dimmer Switch with Wallplate - Almond
This new Diva Dimmer Switch eliminates all the usual issues one might encounter when using a standard switch to dim a CFL or LED bulb. Its integrated HED technology features advanced dimming circuitry that makes it compatible with most high-efficiency light bulbs. With this dimmer switch installed, you’ll be able to adjust light levels just as you would with a regular light bulb. For added convenience, traditional incandescent and halogen bulbs also work seamlessly with this dimmer switch. Because performance can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, you can use the adjustment dial to set the bottom of the dimming range according to each bulb.

Lights can be turned on and off in an instant by tapping the paddle. The discreet slider gives you the most precise control over how bright or dim you’d like the lights to be. You can even program the light to default to a preferred lighting level when the paddle is used.

This product is also available in ivory and light almond, each sold separately. Read more

Can’t find a wall-mounted switch that meets your exact needs?

No problem! Simply create your own with an X10 controller!
X10 6319-1W XPT1-W Wall Mounted X10 On/Off Controller for 1 Address - White

It’s easy with these customizable wall-mounted controllers. They work just like the tabletop X10 controllers but are permanently mounted in a standard wall switch box and fit standard Decora® wall trim plates. This white Wall-Mounted Controller for One Address features On/Off control. A Decora-Style Wall Plate is required and sold separately.

Setup is a snap: simply connect two wires (Hot and Neutral) from inside the wall box to the two leads coming off the controller. To set the button address, just pop off the keypad, and set the house that the transmitter will controlling. You can even combine units in a multiple wall switchbox to build control panels with custom features.

Since these wall-mounted controllers are primarily transmitters of X10 signals, they do not have the ability to directly control a load. If you are replacing an existing switch (mechanical or X10) with a wall-mounted controller, you will need a X10 receiver to do the switching of the load formerly controlled by the switch. We suggest using Fixture Relay Modules or Plug-In Modules (for locations where the switch controlled an outlet). Read more
