Answer: 
Yes, your under cabinet lighting can be hardwired in your kitchen. All of Armacost Lighting’s power supplies (except the current 15-Watt, item # 204512734) include a plug for use in a standard receptacle, but this plug can be removed for hardwired installation. Instructions for doing so can be found in the included manual for each power supply.

Answer: 
The system can be hardwired by cutting off the plug and connecting the wires to the source. Be sure to keep the polarity correct by connecting the ribbed wire to white and the smooth wire to black.

Answer: 
Yes, Armacost Lighting’s 2-in-1 LED Dimmer controls the dimming as well as on/off control of the lighting. Where wiring makes it difficult or impossible to locate this dimmer in a convenient location, consider coupling with our Wireless touchpad for 2-in-1 LED Dimmer (homedepot.com SKU# 205884027) for completely wireless on/off control with full range dimming in a Decora-style touchpad design

Answer: 
Yes, Armacost Lighting’s component-based system is designed to be easily installed in either new construction or retrofit installations. While some wiring runs can be more easily concealed behind a backsplash, most projects do not require that wiring is hidden in this manner. The 2-in-1 dimmer can be surface mounted or flush mounted in a standard electrical box with the included adapter. If it is not Read More
Yes, Armacost Lighting’s component-based system is designed to be easily installed in either new construction or retrofit installations. While some wiring runs can be more easily concealed behind a backsplash, most projects do not require that wiring is hidden in this manner. The 2-in-1 dimmer can be surface mounted or flush mounted in a standard electrical box with the included adapter. If it is not practical to run your low-voltage power wires to a convenient point of control, consider pairing this unit with our optional Wireless Touchpad for 2-in-1 Dimmer (homedepot.com item# 205884027) which provides completely wireless, RF control of your 2-in-1 dimmer. When paired with this unit, your dimmer can be hidden in the same discreet location as your power supply, and this wall-mounted touchpad can be located in a practical spot, usually beside other wall switches.

Answer: 
Yes it can be installed at any time during the remodel process. However, wiring the dimmer behind the wall and through the cabinet can be tricky once all is finished. As a result, wiring the dimmer beforehand is the best case scenario.

Answer: 
No, the 2-in-1 dimmer will not dim 12-Volt halogen lights. Halogen bulbs typically run off of 12 volt AC power, while this product is designed for use in 12 volt DC applications.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Is what it is Product seems to be good quality, does the job it is supposed to. My only note to others is that it does not provide true full-range dimming. The lights are off when the control is lower than 1/3 power (approx). So via my eyes the options are off, bright, and very bright. You cannot obtain a very dim level, for a night-time nightlight effect. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by quality item I have installed several of these switches for LED strip lights throughout my house. Easy to install, quality feel to the switch. Good product. Seems a little pricey but worth it. The Armacost strip lights available through HD are also excellent quality. They put out a LOT of pleasantly soft white light per watt, with almost no heat. Very easy to install for a DIYer who understands electricity. Read technical instructions to be certain you have the right size transformer for the number of watts your installation requires. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Armacost under cabinet led tape light strips with Led dimmer This product was the easiest and quickest install that I have had in a long while.....comparable to screwing in a light bulb! (not really, but close) Highly recommend. I mounted near the front of the underside and there is no glare and the led tape produces tons of light....homeowner is very pleased. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A most have for undercabinet lighting I used three dimmer on my kitchen undercabinet installation all linked together wirelessly to the wall control (sold separately). The dimmer is a most have if you would like to leave the lights on at night or while watching tv in an adjacent room. The valance I have on my cabinets concealed really well the dimmer and transformer. I just wished it had came with the mounting bolts. Had to make another trip to HD for that. July 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great - looks sharp I had a pro install the under cabinet lighting (Armacost LED tape strips) and used 2 of these coordinating dimmer switches. They look clean and work great. No buzzing - no flickering - just smooth off to quite bright. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Addition Used this dimmer with 12V led tape lights installed under kitchen cabinets. This is a nice addition if the power supply is on a switched AC circuit. If the power supply is plugged into an outlet or direct wired into an always on circuit, this is needed as it also allows the lights to be turned off. This provides a good dimming range. March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2-IN-1 WHITE LED DIMMER Second install of this dimmer. Good quality but, I think, over priced. March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great with a few issues... This item works well and looks very nice once installed. It DOES have a positive on/off switch as well as full scale dimming. I agree with a previous reviewer in that breaking the screw tabs is a must if you are installing in a low voltage box. I do have one major complaint about this product though. The overall case size is too large IF you are using a low voltage box extender to add this switch to an existing outlet/switch. This resulted in having to cut away part of the original box the profile size of the dimmer switch in order to get it to fit. The benefit of course to doing this is that you are able to expand an existing outlet or switch into a double gang box with a combined plate for a completely seamless install. Other than that, this is a nice product January 3, 2016
