Landscape lighting, 12V

Today, I control my outdoor lights (off/on) using x10). I would be very interested in seeing how people have cracked the 'color' or dimming of individual bulbs
in a 12V landscape lighting setup. If you have a setup, would love to see how it looks/works in the wild.

Re: Landscape lighting, 12V

I use a Insteon dimmer to dim our Low voltage landscape lights (incandescent). the only way I know to dim individual zones is have multiple transformers with multiple dimmer modules.

When installing my system, I separated it into 4 zones, I had a Smartenit EZIO4O setup with relays so I could control what zone was on using a single transformer.

Unfortunately the EZIO4O died and I have never replaced it, so it's just 1 dimmable zone now. :?

Korey, I only can control one zone now as well.

Hoping some people have experimented with some sort of 12V color controller or DIY/Hack.

There are bulbs like this:

which looks to have enough brightness when compared to the Gledopto (200 lumens) but is wifi. I'm assuming if its wifi then we would need a plug-in.
