Excellent Replacement,
February 6, 2014
By TheLightsAreOn
from Nova Scotia
"We bought this to replace an old remote dimmer after we got Arris multi-room TV and found that the STB remote would randomly operate the old dimmer. This new dimmer has some cool features and works great! No problems. Plan to buy more. Some people are giving this a bad rating because they bought it for the wrong type of lighting. They shouldn't rate the product low because they made a mistake."

Not Compatible w/ LED Lighting,
September 25, 2012
By Lexxus
from Ottawa, ON
"After spending hundreds of dollars on LED spotlights for the family room, I eagerly hooked up this switch .....the thought of a remote is perfect for a home theatre. HOwever, the switch is only compaitble with Incadescent and Halogen lighting. It left my LED spotlights lickering when in "off" mode....so I had to remove it and put a cheap single pole switch on instead. Will have to find an LED dimmer somewhere...."

Won't give you full line voltage by design,
May 16, 2012
By LightTech
from Vancouver, BC
"Lutron's claims that their dimmers will save you 15% on your lighting bill is their way of trying to take a negative and turn it into positive. It’s a lazy man’s excuse and a failing one at that. Lutron's dimmers use old technology that can't give you the full line voltage when the dimmer is set to full brightness. Test it yourself and you will find that you won't see much more than 102 to 105 volts AC when your line voltage is 120 to 123 volts. That's why any Halogen light appears yellowish after hooking up Lutron dimmers. This goes for every type of Lutron’s special dimmers, low voltage electronic transformer, low voltage magnetic transformer, CFL or LED dimmers. I've tried them all and all produce the same 15% voltage drop. Lutron even admits this is the way it is. If you can live with the yellowish Halogen lights or dimmed performance of your new LEDs which are supposed to be crisp and white but are not when used with this Lutron dimmer, then buy the Lutron dimmers otherwise don't waste your time."

Great Light Switch,
November 4, 2011
By Jeffsumm
"This is a great light switch! It works quite well and is very easy to program with your favourite "lightling level".
The only frustration is that you can't easily buy additional remotes in Canada. You have to get them from the USA and pay some high shipping costs. Overall a great light switch!"

Great Product,
March 23, 2009
By bryguy76
from Calgary, AB
"This is a fantastic product. Easy to install even if you're not a handyman (I certainly am not). It comes with a remote, but I use it with a Logitech universal remote control and it works great.
Don't be scared to buy this one. It's well worth it's weight in gold. All of my friends come over and play with the remote control."

Convenient and impressive to friends,
December 27, 2008
By applekris
from Near Brooks, Alberta
"I purchased one of these switches a few years ago and installed it in my living room. I'm an electrician, so I had seen this switch on the market, and thought it looked pretty useful. It was $10 less expensive at Home Depot than at our electrical supplier.
I also purchased a Logitech Harmony remote which now controls my whole home theater, including the lighting. With pre-set dimming programmed into the switch, I can set my lights to different levels depending on whether I'm watching TV or a movie. It works pretty slick.
It comes with it's own tiny remote if you don't have an all-in-one remote."
