    For those that are not already aware, we have a solution to control ANY LED lighting system.

    We have partnered with a few engineers and come up with a solution to control your non dimmable LED lighting system. Adding sunrise/sunset acclimate settings and control of the intensities of your white and blue channels.

    Whether building a DIY or currently having an LED system with our SmartSun unit you will be able to add intelligence to your current lighting system.

    Our SmartSun accepts your current non dimmable drivers, powers the unit and outputs a PWM supply to your LED system.

    So when diy'ng save money on the dimmable drivers and use our SmartSun to do the work.

    We have access to all commonly used connectors and can easily adapt this unit to seamlessly to interface your unit without ANY modification to your unit itself.

    This unit is completely universal and plug and play.

    Andre, do these units include the connecting cables to the led unit?
    So basically, i can simply plug & play this controller with my existing smartsun 400mm unit?

    @Visser, you have one of our CREE units so yes plug and play with no modification at all. The
    SmartSun was designed to give our CREE units controllability.

    Any other unit can be easily adapted with just a connector change, totally universal.

    Hi @Dane G, it will work just send me a picture of 1) Driver spec and 2) the connector that connects to the unit.

    Our units are made to receive these standard 2 + 4 pin connectors but easily adapted to suit yours.

    R1200 each, remembering you won't need to buy the expensive mean well dimming drivers.

    For those of you asking about the preset sunrise/sunset profile, yes you can change this profile, but upon power down it will default back to our hard coded cycle, your have other 25 profiles you can customize to your taste.

    P2, sunrise and sunset are for the lazy ones that so its pre-coded with the cycle stating at 6am ending 9pm.

    Hi Andre, would these work on Vertex Illuminux lighting ? And if I have two lights would I need two controllers or can they be powered off one controller?

    Yes this will work, each SmartSun has 2 channels, so you will need one per unit.
