Rope lighting control

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What are you guys using to control your rope lighting for the ceiling? I'm wanting something similar to this:


I want to be able to turn it on/off and dim from iRule

I have an outlet near too that I can use.

most will install an outlet in there light tray and control it by a light switch/dimmer
you will need to make sure the rope light or led's you use are dimmable ,
you can us insteon dimmer switch

in your case if you do not have a switch then check out smarthome.com for insteon or zwave lamp module
something like this

i rule can control insteon or zwave devices

I was thinkiing the dimmer outlet switch as well but The Insteon rep said that it cannot control LED's under 10watts.

they do make dimmable leds light strips and they come with remote to control them .... i have led's in my tray and to be honest i really have never seen a need to dim them. The only time i think it would be cool is if you have a scene setup so that when you start a movie it dims the lights then shuts them off.
