LED Timer Switch?

tubemanMarch 7, 2012

Is there a programmable timer that I can use for my LED's to turn them off and on at a specified time? The one I find require a 40watt load minimum.

Haven't seen any specifically targeted at LED.

A more complicated, extensive and expensive solution could be to use some form of home automation (Z-Wave, Lutron's proprietary solution, etc) to control an ELV switch.

It's probably not practical for one or two lamps.

The other issue is with the solid state switch (a TRIAC) used in most automation.

You need lights that can tolerate a dimmer to survive on a TRIAC switch (even for full on-off operation).

Outdoor transformer/timers do it all the time for low voltage landscaping lights but I can't find one rated for indoor use. Is this because it would be a fire hazard?
