As the name suggests, you can either dim these products by touch of alternatively using a remote conrol.
You can use the Varilight 8 channel remote controller (Product Code: YRC8) if dimming more than 1 remote in a room to avoid confusion of buttons. Alternatively, you can program almost all TV, Sky, video and radio etc infra-red remote controls to work these dimmer switches. To do this, choose a button that is unused (such as -/--) then follow the instructions given in the leaflet provided with the dimmer or on the technical pages on this website.
The Touch/Remote Dimmers are suitable for 1-way circuits, or they can be used in combination with 1 or more of our touch control Dimming Slaves which enables you to dim the same lights from 2 or more switch locations in a 2-way or multi-way circuit. Please note, 2 master switches will not work together, you must use a master and a slave.
The Touch/Remote Dimmer can be used for mains incandescent GLS lamps (standard mains light bulbs), maximum load as specified on dimmer. It can also dim GU10 or similar Hi Spot Mains Halogen lamps (only use quality UK supplied lamps) maximum load as specified on dimmer. By using Touch/Remote dimmers there is a zero risk of damage in case of lamp failure and a dramatically improved lamp life. Whilst the standard range of Varilight Remote/Touch Dimmers are suitable for Dimmable Halogen, CFL and Incandescent light fittings, Cutting edge bulbs like LED's are not supported. If you want to dim LED's, have a look at the new range of Eclique/Eclipse Dimmers.
