Varilight Eclique dimmer switches are suitable for dimming LED lamps and downlights. This includes mains voltage GU10 LEDs and integrated LED downlights, it also works with halogen and incandescent. Unlike conventional rotary dimmer switches (see V-Pro), the Eclique range has touch dimmers.
The new Eclique 2 range no longer has a touch button, it has designated up and down buttons for improved lighting control. They are very easy to use and can also be controlled using the Varilight controllers; YRC8 or the new YRE8. They can also be programmed to be controlled using your Sky TV remote.
Dimmer switches not only give you complete control over your lighting ambiance but also reduce energy costs and allow your lamps to last even longer. The Varilight Eclique range is available in a number of finishes in a modern screw-less flat plate design.
Another advantage of the Eclique range is that it allows 2 way or even 3 way dimming. This means you could dim the same light from multiple locations. Simply install a standard Eclique master dimmer switch then add an Eclique slave to the circuit. For 3 way dimming just add another slave.
Having some problems with erratic switching on and go. Have contacted supplier to see if a load rectifier is needed.
Works a treat.
The fact that the rocker switch in the middle is not immediately evident from the picture. Had I known that I might have chosen another model. I haven't installed them yet. So difficult to say how well they work.
Simple swap for existing switch to give reliable led lamp dimming and option of remote control
The switch itself is a great idea at a reasonable price. Being able to swop from leading to trailing edge, is brilliant. However, it's flimsy construction (cheap plastic construction) doesn't full me with confidence regards it's longevity. It was also very difficult to get it to enter 'programming' mode. ( not like the better made halogen dimming model). The centre 'button' is also erratic; sometimes requiring a firm push, other times needing just the slightest of glances.. All in all, a useful product for remote dimming of led downlights, but poorly made.
