Zano Control's top 3 installation tips for multi-point dimming

Got a multi-point LED dimming project on the horizon? Here are our top tips.

LED dimmers are at the top of the list for best home upgrades for a reason: they are an affordable and quick addition to lighting control that instantly elevates the mood of your customers’ space, day and night.

Our ZSMARTLED allows you to dim from up to 3 points on a single circuit, saving you money, time and problems further down the line.

Now you know just how easy it is to add a 3-point dimmer in place of your standard switch, here are 3 tips to get the best out of your next ZSMARTLED installation:

Full project specification

Our technical team takes care of project specifications every day. On larger commercial or new build projects, we strongly recommend coming to us first, before purchasing your lamps and dimmer(s). Why? A faster and simpler install.

Check the wattage is right for the dimmer

A better project finish and no time or money wasted.

Compatibility testing

Not all LEDs are created equal.

Even when it comes to big brand names and reputable manufacturers, LEDs can vary widely from model to model. Technical issues like inrush current and power factor skew the wattage on the box significantly and often have negative side effects on the quality of your installation.

Don’t leave your customers’ projects to chance. We test lamps for compatibility with our dimmers every day – just call our technical team to discuss sending lamps to us for testing, free of charge.

Upsell, upsell, upsell

Next time a customer asks for dimming control at the top and bottom of the stairs, or from more than one entryway, say yes. With our multi-point dimming products, it's easy to install a 2- or 3-point dimmer switch to provide full dimming capability from more than one control point on a single circuit. There’s no need for complicated or expensive bespoke systems: these products install straight off the shelf and are available at affordable prices.

You can also add multi-point LED control to a project with a much larger wattage. Just switch over to our ZBARLED remote dimming pack.
