    Evening all, been asked to price up a rewire and part of the lighting required is downlighters that can change between warm white and daylight. The client mentioned he would like it controlled from a switch rather than a remote. Never used a fitting like this before and do not know a great deal about them. Does anyone have any pointers? before i speak to the wholesalers on monday.
    Cheers

    No not really, it would definately be programmable lights, best to speak to your wholesaler, it may well be an easy install, but without knowing what kit is going in, it is pointless trying to guess fella.

    They would ask the question to a lighting rep I think Clive, certainely an unusual situation, sounds like LED programmables would have to be considered.
