Turn the MaxLight into a Day & Night Skylight

What’s the secret to the MaxBeam24 LED skylight? It has a high performance solar panel mounted on the roof which charges a built-in solar battery. A specialised LED light ring is fitted into the MaxLight skylight diffuser mounted in the ceiling to light the room.

Solar Powered Dimmer
The MaxDIM solution consists of the following parts:
- A dimmer mechanism mounted in the skylight tube
- A small solar panel mounted on the roof the provides the power to drive the dimmer mechanism
- The remote control to set the perfect light level.
This solution removes the need for an electrician to wire the dimmer electric motor into an electric circuit. This simplifies the installation process, making it suitable DIY install.
There are different sized dimmers available to suit the ML250, ML400 and ML550 skylights.
