    I have a single room with 7 x 50 w mains bulbs. I have been looking at Furonix to work the lights in sync with my prontp buttons. The P100 looks good but I think I want a P50. I don't need multi scene, just a simple on/off/dim. They also cope up to 600w and most importantly DON'T need the neutral wire.
    Does anyone know anything about the P50?
    Does anyone know where I can get a P50 from?
    Thanks

    If you just need a remote controlled dimmer that can be worked from your Pronto then B&Q have just started selling these for £29. You'll also need the remote for it which is about £7.50

    Oops - Meant to say that you don't need the remote. The dimmers can be programmed to respond to any IR signal - they suggest an unused button on an existing remote.

    With the Pronto I simply downloaded some IR codes for a bit of kit I DIDN'T have, and programmed the dimmers to that.

    Cheers

    Kevin.

    Thanks Chris & Kevin,
    just what I needed. I'll try the TLC site first then good ol' B&Q if that doesn't work. Both seem to cope with a 400w load which suits me fine.
    cheers
    Alistair
