With two 600 Watt outputs, the number of light switches at an entryway, great-room or even bathroom may be reduce by 50%. Instead of having two, four or more light switches stretching across a wall, the home owner can have all the needed lighting controls in half the space.
Simply Automated’s unique universal faceplate technology offers the home owner 13 interchangeable faceplate choice, including single- double-, triple- or four-rocker faceplates, as well as single- or dual-rocker with 4-buttons, 4-button or 8-button faceplates. There are two button styles, thin-bar or oval, with custom button labeling options. All the faceplates are available in 6 standard colors (white, ivory, almond, light almond, brown and black).
The Dual Output, Universal Dimmer also includes a timer feature that can help save energy. This makes the Universal dimmer ideal for bathroom applications where lights, fan or even heat lamp controls can be doubled up in one junction box and automatically shut-off at a variety of preset times. Other applications for the Dual Output Dimmer include retrofit replacement of conventional dual toggle switches.
