Anyone can install an LED light strip. They're more or less plug and play, and are available in kits for most applications. What's a little more complicated, however, is completing a classy, fully dimmable installation, and delivering it to your customer on time and under budget. Sure, you can connect an in-line PWM (pulse width modulation) dimmer that'll dim okay from 100% down to about 20%, but if your customer is making a permanent installation in their home, then it pays to have a qualified expert install a high end 110V wall dimmer with a compatible dimmable driver
Dimming LEDs is - some people will tell you - a complicated business. Standard power supplies and transformers don't respond well to 110V dimmers. When you can source a power supply with dimming capability, finding a compatible dimmer switch is tough. All exaggerations, we hope - or maybe they just haven't found the right supplier.
At HitLights, it's simple. You pick one of our dimmable drivers
. You purchase a compatible dimmer switch
- directly per the manufacturer's recommendations. You install the dimmer switch before the dimmable driver - per this diagram
- with a handful of wire nuts or similar connectors. And your customer has reliable, high quality dimming - from 100% all the way down to 0%, all from their wall switch.
Alternatively - skip the dimmable driver entirely with our new Switchex
