Example of P100 Bedroom Dimmers

With the Futronix P100 dimmer switch, you can dim the lights from the comfort of your chair – control the atmosphere of your room at the touch of a button – or set your bedroom lights to gently fade up to wake you in the
morning. Enjoy peace of mind, knowing your house lights will automatically switch to a security setting at night – even when you are out!

The P100’s 2 channel dimmer can be programmed to any level of brightness from 0 to 100%, with the levels automatically stored as one of 20 scenes per channel, each offering a different ‘look’ to your
entire room or space.

Set your desired scenes for entertaining, relaxing, watching TV or reading – or for security or energy saving. Once set up, recall your favourite scenes simply by touching a single button on either the switch panel or the supplied remote control unit.

The 2mm thick solid metal face plates are elegantly finished with highly polished or smoothly brushed surfaces to complement any room design.

LED Lamps and Energy Saving

Futronix dimmers are compatible with most quality, dimmable LED Lamps – Futronix have tested many well known brands and have produced a recommendation sheet based on that experience.

The best lighting designers use LEDs especially for accent lighting, and blend their schemes with other lamp types such as tungsten and halogen. By mixing different lamp types together a more attractive blend of overall lighting can be achieved.

Dimming the classic warm colours of tungsten or halogen lighting saves energy. Bulb life is also prolonged by 30% because fading a lamp is gentler on the filament than just switching it on or off.

Remote Control

Your choice of dimming levels can be selected with the remote control supplied with the P100 dimmer. Program dimming levels, master raise and lower, fade rate and sleep timer duration – all from the convenient remote control. Or adjust any of the lighting levels without storing them. Choose power up dimming options, either the last dimming level selected or OFF. Additionally, the P100 dimmers remote control commands can be ‘learnt’ by any universal learning remote control.
