    Dual Dimmer LED

    My home came with flood lights on both corners in the rear of the house. Each flood light has two bulbs: Satco s9449 dimmable led par38 15w is what I can make out on the bulbs. Would it be possible to install a dual dimmer switch that controls each light fixture separately? I have installed Lutron dual slider fan/light switches in the past and that would be great to find a switch that gives me the dual control of the flood lights. Thanks for any advice you can lend!

    Lutron does not currently have a dual device rated for LED. If the LEDs are forward phase you may be able to use the Skylark dual dimmer.

    Thank you. So is it just a matter of changing flood light bulbs to forward phase to use the Skylark dimmer?

    The S9449 under it's spec sheet for dimming states: "Forward Phase or Reverse Phaseor Phase Selectable". The S2-L Skylark dual dimmer is rated for forward phase. We'd recommend to go with a bulb that is forward phase rated only. Also, please note that while not a safety issue this dual dimmer like the rest of our dual controls is not LED rated. A forward phase rated LED bulb may work, but the dimmer is rated for incandescent/halogen only. Depending on how the LED reacts you may get full functionality; we cannot guarantee compatibility because the dimmer is not rated for LEDs. If you have any other questions our tech support team is available at (1-888-588-7661) and support@lutron.com.

    Thank you. You've been very helpful to me as, admittedly, I'm willing but not too knowledgeable in all of this!
