The SK7 - SkylinkHome 3-Way Dimmer Kit7 is an easy-to-install kit that is meant for wireless manipulation of your lamp or lighting fixture. The SK7 comes complete with (1) Wireless Wall Mount Transmitter unit as well as (1) Wall Dimmer model. The Wall Dimmer replaces the existing wall switch (no Neutral required) and requires a simple two wire installation. Once installed, the Wall Dimmer can dim your lamp or light fixture (dimmer light-bulb required), which is great when trying to conserve energy and save money.
The truly convenient feature about the SK7 is that the Wireless Wall Mount Transmitter can function as an additional dimmer switch that can be placed as far as 500 feet away. For example, if you would like a dimmer switch both at the top and the base of a staircase, this would be an ideal solution as the Wireless Wall Transmitter can attach to your wall and wirelessly control the unit instantly.
By dimming your light to 50% level with a SkylinkHome dimmer, you can save about 40% of electricity, which in turn means a lower electric bill! The SK7 is expandable to control multiple lights and zones. See the accessories tab to view additional accessories to be integrated into your system.
