Lights are up and working on AC. Dimming capability is wonderful!!
I'm waiting for a 4' ribbon extender cable to arrive. Once here, I think I'm going to mount the IR module inside my porch light & stick the IR receiver out one of the top grates (need to notch out part of the amber cover to do this.
Then I'll tap into the porch light DC to power the unit. Fingers crossed.
