My bathroom lighting consists of recessed down lights and LED pelmet lighting. With everything switched on the light levels are high which is fine but not great for a relaxing bath. I want to be able to dim the lights to create a mood atmosphere. As such I have wired up a single dimmer switch to the supply that feeds all of the lights. The recessed lighting dims fine, but the LED pelmet light comes on pretty much instantly on the dimmed range and lights up the bathroom which ruins the effect.
I would like to retain the single switch so am wanting to install some form of relay which only activates the LED lighting at the top of the dimmed range. Does anyone have any ideas? I was wondering whether it was possible to get some form of voltage sensor which would detect voltages over a certain level, say 220v (at the top of the dimmed range) which activates a relay which in turn activates the LED curcuit.
