SmartThings Dimming Outlet

The Samsung SmartThings Dimming Outlet is a pluggable ZigBee outlet that can be used to control plug-in lamps and other lighting devices. (Note: The Dimming Outlet requires incandescent bulbs, or compatible dimmable LED or fluorescent bulbs.) Using the SmartThings app on your smartphone, you can command the device from across the room or across the globe.

With the Dimming Outlet, you can create a timed nightlight for your children or adjust your lamp's brightness on demand. The Samsung SmartThings Dimming Outlet also acts as a repeater, extending the range of your ZigBee network.
