This supply may vary in voltage and frequency by no more than 5%, any variations outside of this specification will void our warrantee.

UPS and backup power systems that generate 220v AC supply often make use of modified SINE wave generators, that result in unpure or noisy SINE waves that can cause severe damage to equipment. Please contact us should you wish to install any of our equipment under these conditions, we can then advise you on the correct remedial action.
Placing the receivers close to the lights allows for short wiring runs and simpler installation. Placing all the receivers together, however, simplifies maintenance if required.
If your Internet SIM card does not have the ability to send a text message you will be required to temporarily make use of a SIM card that can.

 Ensure that the light is a dimmable bulb. Not all LED loads are made the same way and batches of the same bulb can change due to change of electronic supplier or cost cutting. Most will work fine but there will always be some out there that wont work well with our dimmer.
Make sure you have a dimmable bulb. Make sure your QS-R-DOPTO is in dimmer mode. Swop the load with a working load to make sure its not the dimmer at fault.
