    Lightbulb LED awning light

    Some may like the awning light, but we find it a little (no make that a lot) on the intense side. Is it possible to add a dimmer at the switch ?
    It would be great to be able to soften it up when a bright light isn't necessary .

    This is what it looks like in the panel. We also added a dimmer for the lights over the theater seating.

    The two switches I replaced had a +input and +output wire on them. The new switches have four connections. The two mentioned and -input and -output. I just cut the negaative wire that was behind the switches and made the four connections.
    I used two flat washers painted black to mount the awning dimmer in the panel and made the switch opening for the overhead light bigger to accept the new switch.
    Hope that helps.

    If you recall, where did you get the switch over the theater seats?
    I haven't been able to find one like it online so far.
