remote
MCBRF-4A controller is syncable. You can sync one remote to multiple controllers, and one controller to up to three remotes. The controller can also be put into a mode where it will respond to any remote.
Pairing a remote to a controller:
1. Remove power from controller for at least 5 seconds
2) Apply power to controller and within 5 seconds hold down both 100% and 25% keys for 5 seconds
Putting controller into unpaired mode:
1. Remove power from controller for at least 5 seconds
2. Apply power to controller and within 5 seconds hold down both On/Off and Mode+ keys for 5 seconds

Installation
1. Power Supply
Controller accepts DC 5V to 24V. The red wire should be connected to positive and black wire to negative. Power supply voltage should match that of the LEDs to be used with the controller. For example, a 12VDC LED strip will require a 12VDC output power supply
2. LED Output
The red output wire should be connected to LED positive and black wire to LED negative. The peak output current is 12A.
CAUTION!
Do not short circuit the LED output, this may permanently damage the controller!
remote
3. Remote Control
Remove plastic tab from battery compartment. Remote uses 3V CR2025 battery, replace only with same type.
Notes
  • Only power with 5~24VDC power supply.
  • Controller can control a maximum of 30 meters of our single color LED Strip. Over 30 meters, the strips have to connect with an amplifier to reinforce the transmission of signal. Use one amplifier for every 30 meters of additional LED Strips.
  • Do not exceed 80% of Power Supply capacity when calculating Power Supply size to use in your system.
  • Supply voltage should match operating voltage of led product.

Better than LDRF-8A

This little dimmer does everything the LDRF-8A does, and more... except push 8 amp loads, so if you have a ton of LEDs your out of luck.

The number one feature of this dimmer in MY opinion, is that if you have your LED power supply on a physical switch (on / off switch), when you turn the switch on, the dimmer defaults to an ON status. The LDRF-8A defaults to off, forcing you to use the remote to turn them on. The MCBRF-4A can still function if you forget / lose / don't want to use the remote.

With the remote, you can switch to pre-set brightness levels (LDRF-8A didn't have pre-set, only slow adjustments with the remote). You can cycle through various pulse modes. You can adjust the brightness other than the 100%/50%/25%, you can adjust the pulse mode speed, and you can turn the lights on or off. When turned off or powered down, the dimmer remembers the previous settings (pulse / speed / brightness) and goes back to it.

And it's cheaper... This is the perfect dimmer!

Flickering

This product would be awesome... if it didn't flicker at low brightness. I have it hooked up to an LED strip in my bedroom. I often have it on the lowest brightness and it flickers. It starts to flicker at 25%. Any brightness higher than 25% and it's good.

An Amazing Product

This is an amazing product at a great price! I wired it in, and it worked instantly to control my new LED kitchen lighting.

I would actually like less! Please make a simpler model without the disco effects. In household lighting we need nothing more than on/off and dimmer functions.

Also, there is no good way to wall mount the remote. Yes, we could simply use double-stick tape, but that will make a mess when battery change time comes. Please make some sort of snap-in trim ring for the remote.

WOW technology for peanuts

This is a great gadget. The remote works perfectly to over 50' indoors. The remote has both rf and led outputs so you can see if the battery is flat. The receiver module is tiny and trivial to wire. My only complaint is the unit has too many modes for household lighting. For under cabinet apps you will have little use for the various strobe modes. In a police car ok, but in a kitchen, no.

Simple, cheap, and works - but...

Remote works exactly as expected with the exception that the remote does not reach the device very well. I have the receiver / device on top of the cabinet with the power supply because that is where my runs split out from and the remote is on the counter just below that cabinet for a grand total of under 5 feet of distance between them and the reception of the remote's signal is still 50/50...

One other thing that is worth noting that I couldn't find when deciding to purchase - this dimmer DOES preserve the settings you last had it set at through loss of power. Since my flow is wall outlet >Smart plug (for SmartThings / Alexa Connectivity) > power supply > Dimmer module > 3 LED strip runs, I wanted to make sure that even if I fully cut power to the dimmer at the smart plug, it would still preserver the 25% brightness so I wouldn't have to set the brightness every time smart things turned them on for me.
