With the SK2 - SkylinkHome Lighting Starter Kit2 you'll be able to control and manipulate the lighting fixtures within your home without ever having to be directly beside the lighting switch.  The SK2 comes with a Plug-In Dimmer, a Remote transmitter, and even a screw-in Dimmer light bulb that is compatible with nearly any lamp or light fixture.

Remote control of your lighting fixtures can prove useful for many reasons.  It is no secret, after all, that intruders like to work under the cover of darkness.  With the SK2 you can instantly turn your lights on in your home at any hour if you hear suspicious noise or activity.  Additionally, the SK2 can be ideal for anyone who works late nights.  Coming home to a dark and empty house can be daunting to some, but with the SK2 you can ensure to have your lights on before even entering your door!

Furthermore, the use of Dimmed lights can save you money and energy! By dimming your light to 50% level with a SkylinkHome dimmer, you can save about 40% of electricity.

Installation is not required, as the dimmer plugs into any regular outlet.  Simply connect your lamp to the dimmer itself, and you'll instantly be able to control your lighting wirelessly from as far as 500 feet away with the simple push of a button from your Remote. The remote itself features ON/OFF and Dimming functions.

The SK2 is expandable to control multiple lights and zones.  See the accessories tab to view additional accessories to be integrated into your system.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Can I use SkylinkHome dimmer to dim Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL)?
A. Yes, you can. Any of SkylinkHome dimmers is designed to be compatible with dimmable CFLs. The CFL itself must be dimmable, non-dimmable CFL can not be used with any dimmer. Some dimmable CFLs are not up to standards, for example, limited dimming range, flashing when dimmed low, etc., please select the good quality bulbs to use with dimmer.
 
Q. Is there any minimum load requirement for your dimmer?
A. A minimum load of 7W is required for the proper function of wall mount two-wire dimmer. Other dimmers have no minimum load requirement.
 
Q. Does one button on a remote only control one light?
A. No, it can control any number of lights assigned to it.
 
Q. Can I control the lights in a room all at once?
A. Sure, you can assign all the lights to one zone on a remote and control them all at once.
 
Q. How can I control the individual light separately?
A. Buy each light a dimmer or a switch. Use one button for one light on your remote.
 
Q. How can I add a 3-way switch?
A. Just attach a wall remote on the wall and assign it to a switch or dimmer, it becomes a 3-way switch or dimmer. No wiring is needed.

A. No. The Skylink wall switch or dimmer has two-wire design for retrofitting. Simply replace your old switch with the new one and the installation is done.

A. Yes. You can use SkylinkHome Plug-in or Screw-in dimmer, which requires no installation.
