Dimmable Socket Rockets
« on: April 29, 2012, 04:29:18 PM »

I would like to see socket rockets that you are able to dim/brighten like a lamp module.  I have track lighting in my home that are on one wall switch.  Currently I use socket rockets to individually turn them on/off.  There are times however that I would like them all on, but not as full brightness.  Is that possible?

I don't think they dim. I did just try it a few times with code that works on my other modules.

A long time ago X10 made a screw-in-socket light control that could dim. But it was very large which was likely its down fall. If I can find the old X10 model number I will post it. You might be able to find one on Ebay.

Correct the LM15A Socket Rocket does not dim. Strictly On and Off.
SL575 was the dimmable one.
It is big and bulky  ;D
