SYLVANIA Dimming Switch

Control and automate your SmartThings devices with the SYLVANIA Dimming Switch (73743) and SmartThings. NOTE: This device will not act as a dimmer. Use both push pads as two programmable buttons to trigger various actions throughout your SmartThings home. Set one push pad to turn your lights on to 80% and set the other to turn your lights on only to 10% for when you get up for water at night.
