The led dimmers go on the output side of the transformer. You can't put a dimmer on the input side of the transformer.

What do I need if I have a light switch at the top of stairs and another switch at the bottom of stairs.

Asked by Charlotte January 10, 2020

Answers

I'm not sure. I think you could use the dimmer that is physically connected to the light string at one location, then connect a wireless switch at the other location. I only use the wireless switch (which also has a dimmer function), but the power unit connected to the led strips does have its own dial dimmer--it's just up on top of the cabinets where I can't reach it. It might also be possible to use two wireless switches and locate the powered control out of the way. I'd look at the Armacost web site; they have a lot of detailed instructions.

The dimmer knobs are replaceable in that they can be removed and/or exchanged. However, it is not a part we have readily available so in the event of a defect, you would have to file a warranty claim* and receive a new dimmer entirely. You can then swap out the knobs or install the new dimmer. *Limited 2 year warranty for dimmers from the date of purchase. Email us at support@armacostlighting.com for more information

We recommend using a single dimmer or color controller with every power supply in your circuit. Wiring more than one dimmer or controller to a single power supply could result in adverse lighting effects such as interference or flickering.

Works great. I installed 4 puck lights using the remote dimmer. You can actually turn the manual dimmer off and then the wireless remote totally controls the lights. I put the manual dimmer inside my backbar cabinet with the lights and power supply, and the wireless remote attached to the wall.

Works great and easy to install. Love the ability to dim the under-cabinet lights to almost nothing. Makes a great kitchen night light. Only been installed for about a month so can't comments on reliability. Got a 2 gang switch box, made for one side low voltage and the other 120V. Wife loves it.

One question I have for Home Depot - Why would you stock the 12' Warm White LED Lighting tape for hard-wire and the necessary separate transformer but not stock the Switch / Dimmer in the store? I had to replace the switch / Dimmer but had to order it on line. That doesn't make any sense to me that you can't purchase all the pieces and parts for a complete install at the store.

No problem with the functioning of the product, but it was difficult to work with. This review is written for my use, which was in a "rework" wiring box in drywall. For a clean look, and other reasons, I installed this behind the same switch plate as the switch that controls the overhead room lights. Since the low voltage wires should not be in the same box as power wires, I used a "split" box with a power section and a low voltage section bought from Home Depot. This dimmer was too wide for the low voltage section of the box, so I had to modify the low voltage side of the box. I could not use a dimmable power supply because I needed multiple runs from one power supply and that there is no "locally located" power source. As you can see in the standard product photo, the white color of the included "Decora" cover is not quite the same as the regular "Decora" white. The knob-style dimmer does not match other dimmers in "Decora" style -- I have Lutron Skylark dimmers throughout the house, so this was quite disruptive to the style. The most difficult part of this product is that 1) the wiring is at the bottom of the dimmer, 2) the dimmer is placed at the vertical center of the box, and 3) the dimmer is large. Thus, the wires need to be bent back at the point where they come out of the dimmer. For installation ease, Armacost made the wire attachment point removable, which was very nice. However, I had some long wire runs, so I used a large gauge wire (too large, as it turned out). Thus, the wire was very stiff and tended to pull the wire attachment block off of the dimmer. Also, the quick connect block needs to be attached to the dimmer before putting it in the box, so the cleverness of the design is diminished. Also due to the difficulties of inserting the device into the box, I had to cut the tab off of the switch (as suggested by the instructions). This made the dimmer non-returnable, so I am really glad I like the way it turned out. My rating could have been 5 stars for the fact that the product can work as surface or box mount, that it came with a Decora plate and the disconnect block. However, the size of the dimmer itself, the non-standard wire placement and other factors significantly diminish the design. This could have ended up as two stars. Armacost should consider two different dimmer products -- one designed for use in boxes and a different one for surface mount.

Works well and high quality
Works as advertised with led puck lights and power supply from different manufacturer. Seems to be very well made, can usually tell by the feel of the rotary switch. This one has a good feel to it. Also installed the wireless switch and they work well together.

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.

Easy install dimmer for 12v lighting
This 12v dimmer makes installation easy and gives you options of where you want your led lighting to be controlled from. It can be installed either in-wall or surface mounted. I use them for surface mounting because you can hide them in or under cabinets. 0-100% dimmability. Made of plastic, knob is metal. Installs on load side of led driver.
