Inspired LED provides energy efficient, modular, and low-cost LED lighting to all of our customers. What is even more amazing about these tiny lights is that they are incredibly powerful and bright! Due to their small but mighty performance, it is often necessary to purchase a dimmer with our lights. Not only do dimmers help you create beautiful ambient lighting, but they provide a range of settings to accommodate any application. However, knowing what to purchase can be a daunting task, so we are here to help!

First, you need to determine how you will be powering your lights. Will you be using a plug-in power supply or a hardwired transformer? Both options allow you to dim any of our products by simply using different accessories!

Plug-in Power Supply

You can either control the on/off setting of our lights using an in-line switch or a switched outlet controlled by a wall switch. A common misconception is the ability of a switched outlet to control the dimming setting of our lights. A wall switch can control the on/off setting of our lights, when using a plug-in power supply, but it has no ability to dim them. That is why we provide two options for in-line dimming:

 

 

 

1. The 4-Position Push Button Dimmer

A low profile accessory that comes with adhesive stickers on the back for easy installation underneath your cabinets. The plug-in power supply plugs directly into the input side and the 4” cable that is included with the dimmer goes from the output into your first light.  This small and simple accessory has five dimming options and will save your desired setting when using a switched outlet!

 

2. Dimmer with Wireless Remote

An in-line accessory that comes with a controller and remote, that allows you to control the dimming of your lights anywhere in the room! It has a wider range of dimming settings with a color reel as well as push button keys that control brightness levels. Furthermore, these controllers can be synced together. This means you can control multiple areas in one room with one remote–an added convenience that makes this product even more appealing.

 

3. Independence Dimmer

Our newly introduced wireless wall dimmer allows for the function of the RF dimmer module as described above, with the visually appealing look of a wall switch. This dimmer unit uses energy harvesting technology, and be installed almost anywhere since it doesn’t require batteries or a power source. This product will be available end of Summer 2014!

Dimmable Transformer

The Dimmable Transformer is our hardwired option that requires a compatible wall switch to control the on/off setting and dimming of our lights. The install requires a low voltage, magnetic wall switch in conjunction with one of our transformers. There are three different transformer options available depending on how many lights will be in your application: the 40W, 60W, and 100W. Lastly, we have one compatible wall switch available for purchase: the Lutron Diva Magnetic Low-Voltage Single-Pole Dimmer. This comes with a slide control to dim the lights, as well as the standard paddle switch for on/off capabilities.
