Great Remote Dimmer
13 Feb 2013
By Electricknight
, Burton on Trent
"These Varilite dimmers are excellent value for money. I have fitted lots of them without any problems.
This particular dimmer will not dim LED'S but Varilite do a version that will. I have also fitted those without any problems

"Purchased with a remote control. My wife is disabled, this switch has made so much difference to hers/my comfort in the living room. Easy to fit, works well with an energy efficient lamp. Will be fitting one to bedroom soon. Great product, and great service from screwfix."

Very simple to fit works great
10 May 2012
By NickR
, London
"Great straightforward replacement for a standard switch. Works just as advertised and the 'soft start' it does is nice.
As somebody else has said, on some remotes all the buttons operate it so there's a slight gamble involved. At this price though it's not a big one and you can still buy the dedicated remote."

"Very easy to fit - it simply replaces an existing switch. Will work with a spare button on most remote control units and is great value for money."

Control limitations
28 Mar 2014
By UmbwaKali
, Teesside
"Nice item & I have also the Varilight remote to go with it. Bought this for my daughter's new flat where the lounge downlighters master switch/dimmer is behind the door. This unit does require a line of sight from the remote to the switch button eye so don't expect the remote to function where there is a wall or other obstruction between the switch/dimmer unit & the position you want to control it from."

OK with the Varilight remote
17 Jun 2011
By jagman1
, Berkshire
"This remote is easy to fit and will work with a fairly shallow back box. The touch sensor is fine although not as sensitive as some, and the optional Varilight remote also works fine. The "soft-start" function does mean it takes a second before you realise the lights have responded.
It is also possible to programme a spare button on your TV remote to operate the dimmer. I tried this with our Humax STB remote, and not only did the "spare" button operate the dimmer, so did every other button. Trying the Sharp TV remote instead meant that now any button on either remote operated the lights! I eventually reprogrammed it with another remote which we don't use in that room (there is no other way of clearing the programming other than to overwrite it) - so if you want to dim remotely, buy the Varilight's own remote. Apparently, according to the (very good) tech support, the dimmer only looks at the first part of the remote's output so can't discriminate between the different buttons."

Not bad for price
11 Jan 2013
By Showerman63
, Wakefield
"Had MK previously for over 10 years finally failed. This is a cheap looking replacement. Time will tell on reliability. Build quality seems quite flimsy, poor quality feel to the finish. Infra red when programmed to spare button on tv remote has a mind of its own when other buttons are pressed. Noisey buzz when used in dimming mode."

Doesn't work with led bulbs
24 Mar 2012
By Ronrocket
, Maidstone
"This was going to be an ideal dimmer for the bedroom. I had recently replaced my halagon gu10 bulbs for led replacements. Surface mounted led type 4watts 320 lumens. Unfortunately the dimmer doesn't provide enough resistance to turn them off. In the off position the lights the flicker at a very
low level.
"
