The LW12 is a tiny X10 Receiver, responding to signals sent from a Interfaces or Transmitters. Controls one incandescent lighting load up to 250W.


How the LW12 X10 Inline Dimmer Receiver works

The LW12 micro-module can be mounted behind any conventional wall switch, even most designer switches. It's an X10 home control receiver that can be controlled by any of our home control transmitters, interfaces or remote controls. Allowing you to automate your lights (including dimming), the LW12 can also be controlled manually through a momentary action wall switch.

The LW12 responds to the standard X10 commands like "On", "Off", "Dim", "Bright", "All Units Off", "All Lights Off" which are sent from X10 home control transmitters. The X10 address of the LW12 is set electronically, using any X10 compatible transmitter. There is an E�PROM memory that stores the address, meaning that even when the power is cut the module will retain its settings.

The LW12 can dim and brighten incandescent lighting up to 250W via your X10 home control transmitters. The lights can also be dimmed manually as the LW12 must be wired to a momentary wall switch mechanism (to purchase a momentary mechanism, see our Home Control Accessories page).
