Are you looking for a way to save energy and money? If so, you may want to consider installing a dimmer switch for your multiple led lights.
How to Use a Single Dimmer Switch for Multiple Lights
If you want to control the intensity of multiple LED lights, you may be wondering if it’s possible to use just one dimmer switch. The answer is yes! But there are a few things you need to know before attempting this project. In this blog post, we will discuss how to properly use a single dimmer switch for multiple LED lights.
Check the Wattage of Your Lights
The first step is to check the wattage of each light that you plan to connect with the single dimmer switch. All dimmer switches have a specified limit on the total power they can control, so by adding up the wattage of all your bulbs, you can determine if this limit surpasses what your single dimmer switch can handle. If it does not exceed the total wattage limit, then you should be good to go.
Do you need a special kind of dimmer switch for LED lights?
Yes, you will need a dimmer that is specifically designed for LED lights. Some dimmer switches are designed to work with both incandescent and LED bulbs but, be sure to double-check before making a purchase.
Connect Multiple LED Drivers to A Single Dimmer
To connect multiple LED drivers to one dimmer, tie the positive wires together and the negative wires together, you can do this with multiple drivers.
You can also connect them in another way. You will have the positive go to the positive dimming circuit, and then the negative of one driver going to the positive of the next dimming circuit, and then the negative going back to the negative driver, this is considered a daisy chain, and that can be continued on if you have more drivers.
Using one dimmer switch for multiple LED lights can save you time, energy, and money. Just be sure to check the total wattage of all your bulbs and buy a dimmer switch specifically designed for LED lights before attempting this project. With the right preparation and some electrical know-how, you’ll have your multiple LED lights connected to a single dimmer switch in no time. Good luck!
