Product Description

This VARILIGHTVarilight Touch and Remote Dimmer Switch uses the latest Trailing Edge Technology providing many more functions than any other dimmerswitch.

Like all our products the TouchRemote Dimmers are designed to meet the latest European Safety Legislation.

As the name suggests you can either dim these products by touch or alternatively using a remote control.

It would be sensible to buy a 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, Video, Sky etc, remote controls to work these dimmer switches To do this choose a button that is unused (or performs no function) then follow the instructions given in the leaflet provided with the dimmer.

Like all our TouchRemotes, they are suitable for 1-way circuits only, unless they are 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.

The touchRemote 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 TouchRemote dimmers there is a zero risk of damage in case of lamp failure and a dramatically improved lamp life.

If you are using the dimmer with quality low voltage transformers such as VARILIGHTVarilight low voltage transformers (product codes: YT50L, YT70L, YT105, YT150, YT250) or other electronic low voltage transformers, you can control them up to maximum load as specified on the dimmer.

Please note TouchRemotes do not dim wire-wound low voltage transformers, choose the Intelligent Dimmer (IQ Dimmer) or alternatively look at the 630 Watt Low Voltage Standard Dimmer to dim this type of transformer.

One step closer to the home automation dream...

The Varilight Remote and Touch Dimmer has become a standard for remote dimmers at least in the UK, and having purchased and installed my first recently, I can see why.

This is the white version of the switch which is the cheapest version, however the unit is very well built and looks great.

I had the thing installed and trained to my own remote control within 5 minutes flat, so easy and simple to set up.

The 2 gang version has 2 dimmer switches which can be trained separately with 2 different buttons on your remote. Pressing the remote button switches on or off, and holding the button down either dims or brightens the light (let go and press-hold again to change direction).

ALWAYS check power ratings before buying.
ALWAYS get a certified professional to install in your home.

Originally bought one from local B&Q, but they have stopped stocking it, so revert to the web.
I needed a replacement due to incorrect installation. This remote/touch dimmer double light switch looks good and does what it says on the tin. Looks smart,compact and gives a modern look to lounge electrics.

Easily installed and set up. Neat little device.

However, it stopped working and become unresponsive (lights off, no way to get them on by either manual or remote control). To reset, I had to go out to the garage and toggle the switch on the mains fuse board (so it is a firmware problem). Hopefully wont happen too often, but cancels out the convenience of remote controlled light switches.

If I need a similar product again, I will try another make.

Is very flat and unobtrusive and works just like how most light switches Ought to. And just replaces the old fitting.
