One of the questions we get asked when installing LED lighting for our customers is, is it possible to have a dimmer light switch that works off a timer? We have seen different scenarios when this can be beneficial, even in commercial applications such as a car park needing to dim its lights during the night to save on electricity. We’ve therefore put together a list of some Dimmer Timer Combination Switches that you might find useful.
Where can I get a dimmer timer combination to control some lights in my house?
You can buy dimmer timer combination switches from manufacturers such as Leviton and Lutron HomeWorks in the United States of America and Clipsal in Australia.
