I currently have a switched outlet with two table lamps plugged into it. I would like to add dimming capability to these lamps, just not sure the best way to do so.
The top half of the receptacle is switched on/off via wall switch, the bottom half is always on. I think if I just replaced the wall switch with a dimmer I'm asking for trouble because there's not enough current flowing, am I correct? If I use a plug in dimmer on top part of the outlet and a Caseta switch, that would give me dimming capability while still maintaining on/off control via the wall switch, but I'd actually have to turn the light on in two spots, at the switch and the plug in dimmer, which is annoying. Would this also result in lag?
Thoughts on the best way to accomplish this? Thanks.
