low cost wall dimmer
« on: October 24, 2010, 02:24:56 pm »
I have installed several Intermatic HA20C (toggle style) dimmer switches but when I wanted to add a couple more I find them no longer available, does anyone know either a reasonably priced source for these, or have a suggestion for an inexpensive alternative? I know there are no other "toggle style" but in other styles I would seek an affordable dimmer which does not need to be three way

homeseer.com keeps "finding" intermatic stock and then putting it on clearance.  I'd check there. And if they dont have any on their website- maybe emailing would be worth your effort?

Cheapest non clearance i'd guess would be ACT brand over at ASIhome.com

Did anyone have any lucking finding these in stock anywhere or another toggle style.  I also want to use a toggle style switch instead of the newer Decor style switch.

Anyone have the older toggle style switch in white and interested in the selling?  I would be very interested in picking up a few of these.

Thanks -

Adrian

I'm not sure you'll find these for sale anymore but perhaps an alternative is the new Aeon modules that go behind an existing conventional switch? Not sure how these work turning on locally or if there is a dimming version, but its something to look into!

Z-Wave 600W 3-Way/Single-Pole Dimmer Switch: HA-14WD Wayne Dalton

I have been using these and they appear to still be available at this location:

http://www.thehomeautomationstore.com/ha14wd.html

This is a single dimmer switch that works with a conventional remote switch in three-way setups or can be installed as a single.

Runs $40.46 currently

I believe I have 4 or 5 of the HA20C's that I'm not using and could be talked into selling cheap. In fact, I have a box full of the GE rocker style switches I'd like to get rid of too if you want some REALLY cheap switches.

I might be interested in some of the GE ones if they are regular on off ones and not the dimming type?

My local Fry's Electronics has a few of the HA20C's, I'll take another look next time I am there and se what they cost.  Slim pickin's as afr as Z-Wave stuff goes at Fry's, but they still have a few things that never seem to go on clearance.
