Price doesnt include delivery (dont know how much this is as i'm not registered).

Can get free delivery if spending over £50 so could be a good filler item

I think it fits into the Bayonet where the bulb goes and then the bulb goes into this so should fit most lights but not 100% sure?

expect dimmer is no good with energy saving bulbs.

Most energy saving bulbs aren't fully compatible with dimmer switch circuits at the moment. A standard dimmer switch will simply make the bulb flicker: annoying for you and not good for your bulb.
The Osram Dulux El Dim is currently the only fully dimmable energy saving bulb. However, there are plans for more to be developed later this year.
There are also energy saving bulbs that can be used with 'staged dimming'. This requires a special sort of dimmer with three separate settings - high, low and off.

Megaman also produce a range of dimmable energy saving bulbs :thumbsup:

I have a number of dimmable energy saving bulbs by various brands, used with regular dimming switches and with Bye Bye Standby dimming sockets. I also have a number that dim using a regular on/off switch.
#9
So it looks like there are now quite a few Energy Saving Bulbs out there that can be used with dimmers, sorry for any confusion :oops:

The wireless bulb sensor can dim and turn your lights on and off at the touch of a button via remote control ;-)
#15
Be good if they made it with a motion sensor instead of remote control.... so it switched lights on when you come into room and off when you go out....

Too many bloody remotes around the house as it is.
#16
Like it, price is good, but just haven't got anywhere I would use it!

Bedroom are spotlights and living room has three bulbs in one light fitting

Where else would it be useful?

What remote control would you need for these?


It comes with the remote. Similar kind of device to the remote power sockets that Netto etc were selling that plug into the wall then the item plugs into that so you can turn it on and off. This just connects to the light fitting itself so it cant be seen, then using the remote thats supplied with it you can dim or turn the light off :thinking:

anyone know if its a IR remote, or a radio one. Just wondering if i can use it with my harmony.
#21
Fantastic item, especially for the price. Could do with getting one for the bedroom, im betting they'll be gone by the time I've been paid lol, although there are 427 in stock at time of posting :thumbsup:

I'd imagine radio as otherwise the sensor on the attachment would have to be always visible so the remote's sensor could communicate with it

Yep ;-)
#26
Anyone know how the remote works? As in is it easy to operate it without dimming by mistake? As long as you could just turn them on and off and not dim by accident then they'd be ok on energy saving light bulbs wouldn't they?
#27
anyone got any pics of how big this thing is or even of the remote itself

Superb, though you needed to buy the remote separately.
Heated and repped :thumbsup:


you get remote with them - great deal - been all over house with remote and it works - even went outside (bl@@dy freezing) - it works from across the road!!!!

put one in light in shed - brilliant

easy remote - just press button for dim - dimmer - even dimmer - off - and then we start again....

But is it possible to use it without dimming, ie just on and off (for an energy saving bulb)

Yup! This is how it performed with my energy saving bulb, have now changed it to a normal bulb as the reason I wanted it was to dim!

Be warned though, the remotes hardly work! I bought four of these, have tried two so far and you're looking at a good 10-15 presses of the button for it to change mode :x guess I shouldn't expect too much for £1 though! :-D
