The remote control switch is infra red and will work from 50 feet away.

It is a standard replacement for your standard switch, no additional wiring required.

In a 2 way circuit you cannot use two of the same remote dimmers you must use a master and a slave switch. Use any number of slave switches in a multiway circuit to create dimming from multiple locations.

A 2 way circuit would be something like top and bottom of a stair case. You would put one Master in with one slave, not you cannot use two master dimmers on the same circuit and a slave dimmer switch will not function without a master dimmer.

Basically the slave dimmer loops the circuit and allows an on/off switch and dimmer switch at the 'secondary' way location to function with these remote or touch dimmer switches.

You can now use these remote dimmers with the Varilight Digiflux Energy Saving Light Bulbs as pictured to the left, with amazing results, 20w of power creating 100w of light and best of all they are instant light and dimmable.

The remote dimmer also has a soft start operation, insuring your light bulbs don't have instant power, therefore it will extend bulb life, saving you money on replacing bulbs and also help the environment as the more hours you get out of the bulb the less replacing you will do.

4 Gang remote dimmers do not come in 400w each module as this will get too hot and melt the face place. Therefor 4 gang remote dimmer are only in 4 x 250w.
