Inovelli LZW31 Smart Dimmer Review

Inovelli Red Series Dimmer Inovelli Black Series Dimmer

Overall Rating diy star 5.0

The Inovelli LZW31 comes in two flavors, red and black. The Black Series dimmer is the utilitarian little brother of the Red Series dimmer. It’s nice that they decided to provide a basic version (that’s still very capable) for those customers that don’t want or care about all the extra features.
