I have 2 sets of 12VDC LED strip lights (4.8W per metre) - (LED Lights).
Each strip is 3M in length. They are both connected in parallel to a LED Power Supply Driver Transformer (36W, 12V DC, 3A) - (LED Transformer).
If I switch the mains on to the other side of the transformer the lights work perfectly.
However, I would like to use a LightwaveRF switch so I can remotely control the lights. Unfortunately LightwaveRF only make a 'dimmer' switch and not just a regular on/off switch. (LightwaveRF Switch)
When I connect the lights to the dimmer the LEDs just flash on quickly and then off for around 1 second and then back on quickly.
After doing some reading on this someone mentioned putting a 'resistive load' in circuit (I presume with the mains coming in to the transformer?). They recommended this resistive load (10W Resistive Load).
Firstly, I just wondered if anyone knows whether this would work or not?
Secondly I wondered if anyone knows whether there's a smaller resistive load that could be used as this one is 59mm diameter so quite large.
Thirdly, does anyone who understands why this isn't working have any other solutions for getting this to work?
