Answer: 
I use mine currently as a remote. Put it in the drawer. It comes with a shallow box that could be double-side taped to a wall. Since it is self-contained, I just kept it in that case and it looks like a regular-type remote.

The dimmer doesn't slide into an existing 2-gang wall plate - the middle divider bulges slightly. Any suggestions?

I've replaced an old dimmer switch, which was paired with a GCFI receptacle, with the Armacost dimmer switch.

I experienced the same thing and carefully trimmed one Decora wallplate with a dremel tool and "whittled" another using a boxcutter with a new blade. Both worked fine

Armacost Lighting's Wireless Touchpad for 2-in-1 dimmer is designed for use with standard electrical boxes and plates, however, some brands may work better than others, depending on your installation. We've found that Hubbell TayMac's wall plates, like homedepot.com SKU# 100141688, and others that do not have a "lip" around the device can create a better fit.

You might also try shimming the GFCI receptacle or the touchpad to match the component depths. We're in the process of looking at design modifications that will expand this device's compatibility, and should have an updated model next quarter.

Answer: 
Yes, each 2-in-1 LED Dimmer receiver unit (homedepot.com item# 203227246) can be paired with up to 3 Wireless Touchpads simultaneously. This permits up to 4 points of control for a single group of lights (including the rotary knob of the dimmer itself).

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Working great for several months now No problems here. Paired easily and controls my third party puck lights just fine, large range from off to maximum brightness. Tapping appropriate button steps brightness up or down, holding it moves setting much quicker. Really appreciate the install options, mounted mine under kitchen cabinet to wall with no electrical box needed. October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as intended! I linked this wall control to 3 separate LED dimmers from Armacost. All 3 LED strips turn simultaneously (almost most of the time). The trick to correctly use it, as indicated in the instructions, is to hold the buttons down instead of pressing it once. If you press quick it may not control all lights taking them out of synchronization. Powering cycle again using the power button on this wall plate solves the issue. July 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wireless touchpad This product is next to worthless. Does not work as advertised! April 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adds finishing touch to kitchen remodel I remodeled my kitchen on my own, completely gutted, from mid-January through mid-March. I wanted under/over cabinet lighting as the last thing. I have two separate areas of cabinets (wall and pantry) which I wanted task lighting. I purchased the armacost strip lighting, and wireless ready dimmers. I installed the Wireless Touchpad outside of my kitchen. The only hint I suggest is to not follow the instructions on how to sync the lights to the touchpad. DO NOT plug in the power cord and then hold the up and down buttons simultaneously. DO push the buttons simultaneously AND THEN plug the unit in. It will work perfectly. And if you have to separate wireless ready dimmers, sync one, but turn the light down completely, not off. Then sync the second as mentioned above. Then turn that light control down completely. Finally turn both controllers off, the touchpad will now control both of them. April 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Inconsistent Operation Been having consistent problems with the remote working with the dimmer. Attempted multiple re-learns, but remote seems to lose memory. Currently I use the wall switch to shut off power to the transformer and dimmer. To use the lights, turn on the wall switch and use the remote to turn on. There is no current ability to dim the lights via the remote. So operation is inconsistent - at BEST. Attempted to replace battery with Duracell 27A. Battery well inside remote is too large and battery contacts do not line up with battery contacts. Wadded up a few folds of electrical tape to raise battery up to level of contacts. Had to re-bend contacts as the spring end was too large a diameter to contact negative battery terminal. January 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and sync with dimmer switch I used armacost to replace an existing AC incandescent undercabinet kitchen lighting system. Love it. The look and feel of the wireless switch is excellent. Professional, clean. Practically no interval in time between hitting the switch nd when the light turns on. Dims very well, smooth. Honestly, for $13 kind of a steal. January 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great and great customer service from Armacost Purchased this to add to Armacost under/over cabinet lighting I installed. It was shipped quickly (Home Depot should carry this in the store!). After trying to sync with the dimmer, I could not get it to work. I sent an email to Armacost and within a couple of hours I got a call back from them with better instructions for pairing the device. They waited on the call while I tried it and it worked first time. By the way, the directions say to plug the power supply in and then hit the up/down arrows on the keypad within 2 seconds to pair. Actually, you hold the buttons down while you plug it in and it works. July 16, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't work! Product does not work. Tried several times with a professional electrician. Should have not needed one. Poor quality January 15, 2016
