The SK1 Basic Lighting Kit from Skylink is a simple way to control and manipulate the lighting in your home or business without having to be directly by the lamp or light switch. This can be a useful device for anyone who works late hours and comes home to a dark house since intruders tend to operate under the cover of darkness. With the SK1 Basic Lighting Kit from Skylink you can turn your lights on before even entering your home, giving you a sense of security with minimal effort.
The SK1 operates using just two components: A Plug-in Dimmer and a Remote Control. 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 from as far as 500 feet away with the simple push of a button using the Remote. The remote itself features ON/OFF and Dimming functions, although you will need to use a dimmable light bulb to execute the Dimming option. Flashing and timer mode is also available!
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.
