The ability to create scenes is one of the features that distinguish a top-class dimmer. The P800's 8 dimmer channels can be programmed to any level of brightness from 0 to 100%, with the levels automatically stored as one of 20 scenes per channel, each offering a different 'look' to your entire room or space.
Set your desired scenes for entertaining, relaxing, watching TV or reading - or for security or energy saving. Once set up, recall your favourite dimmer scenes simply by touching a single button on either the switch panel or the supplied remote control unit.
Your choice of dimming levels can be selected with the remote control supplied with the P800 dimmer. Program dimming levels, master raise and lower, fade rate and sleep timer duration – all from the convenient remote control. Or you can adjust any of the lighting levels without storing them. The P800 dimmer also can be controlled by 3rd party remote control devices including touch screens via the industry standard IR interface.
Use your iPhone or iPod touch to take control of Futronix dimmers and other home electronics devices. Your choice of scenes can be selected from the menus or automatically using one key MACRO commands. Eliminate that cluttered mess of remotes, by consolidating all your remotes into one single i-Phone application. Select your favorite lighting scenes, close the blinds, power up the surround sound system, turn up the volume and flip through channels using one of these Futronix compatible devices.

Program the P800’s timer to select any scene at any time and on any day of the week - up to 70 different events each week (10 per day).
For the bedroom, the P800 features a 2-hour sleep delay timer, or the timer can be set to fade up bedroom lights in the morning.
For home cinemas or living spaces, uses range from ‘welcome’ scenes - which automatically switch on selected house lights for your return home - to selecting security settings. Use the timer to control lighting for 8 channels – set scenes to appear at pre-programmed times and adjust the atmosphere of a room or space, even if you are away from your home.
Program a dimmer security sequence that can last several minutes or many hours, giving the impression that the property is occupied. Automatically sequence through your pre-set scenes, displaying each one for any variable length of time.
Unique to the P800 dimmer is the ability to create multiple lighting zones. Normally a zone corresponds to a room, and with the P800 dimmer you can create up to 4 zones – meaning you can set 20 scenes in each of the 4 rooms.
For bigger systems with even more flexibility, up to 10 x P800’s dimmers can be connected together, providing up to 80 channels of lighting.
By linking a series of scenes and programming the duration and fade rate, the P800 dimmers can be used to provide lighting displays. Applications of this feature include exhibitions and home cinema where it can be used to create a ‘transition’ light show before and after a film.
4 channels of 1-10v industry standard fluorescent dimming control are built into the P800 as standard. Up to 30 dimmable ballasts can be connected to each of the 4 control outputs.
Ideal for light commercial use! The P800 dimmer has high build quality, featuring robust construction with hand-finished 2mm thick solid metal face plates, generously rated heatsinks, commercial level power components with a and a very high level of short circuit protection for longetivity.
