Does this mount on a standard single gang box?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 18, 2013
It installs in a 2in x 4in junction box with minimum inside dimensions of 2in(H) x 2in(W) x 3in(L).

I purchased six of the above step lights. The instructions for this light indicate to use an Electronic Low Voltage Dimmer (ELV). What dimmer should be used? The dimmer would be connected to 120 line voltage, not a 12-24V transformer. I'm confused as to which dimmer to use. Thank you.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 12, 2014
Answer:Jim, you need to use an ELV dimmer - http://www.pegasuslighting.com/electronic-low-voltage-dimmers.html
The dimmer will connect to your line voltage and then in turn connect to the light fixtures.
The step light has a built in driver (similar to a transformer) and WAC Lighting, the manufacturer, recommends dimming with ELV dimmers.

How many of these lights is minimally required if I still want them to be dimmable? Thank you.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 7, 2013
For best dimming performance, you'll need to meet the dimmer's minimum wattage requirement. For example, if the dimmer requires a minimum load of 30W, then you would need to connect 8 step lights to the dimmer.

If I need only 7 of this lights how do you recommend to dim them?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 9, 2014
Answer:Peter, I spoke with WAC Lighting, the manufacturer, about the dimming and minimum load issue.
In general, Lutron's ELV dimmers require a min load of 40W.
If you do not meet that load requirement, WAC suggests using Lutron's Skylark SELV-300P - http://www.pegasuslighting.com/skylark-dimmer-electronic-transformer.html
WAC has tested this specific dimmer with a single step light and found it dims from 100-10% without issue.
Since you intend to install 7 step lights, which is below the 40W min load, I would advise using the Skylark dimmer. I hope this helps!

Answer:You can use any low voltage digital dimmer, from a simple model to an expensive one with lights and touch plates. Digital low voltage, not mechanical. I used Lutron SELV-300P-WH low voltage single pole dimmer. It has an on-off switch and a bar for the dimming. It can be used to dim many more lights then you have.

Can this be installed in the floor?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on June 5, 2015
Answer:No, I would not recommend installing in the floor. These step lights are meant for installation into walls only.
By Tim from Scottsbluff, NE on June 5, 2015
Answer:Not sure I would install it horizontally as it is designed to cast light onto the floor or the treads of steps. If installed into the floor the light would shine onto the wall or in your eyes.
By John from OR on June 7, 2015
Answer:I wouldn't recommend it. It could become a tripping hazard. Additionally, if it was installed in the floor, where would light shine?
By Kirk from Arroyo Grande, CA on June 7, 2015
Answer:I am a general contractor in California and I installed these lights in the concrete risers on my outdoor walkway and they work and look awesome. I would not recommend installing these lights on the floor as the cover plate would not be flush with the floor and water-proofing of the "box" could be problematic. There are other better options for floor lighting.

On a 4' tall retaining wall how far apart I should space the lights?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 23, 2014
Answer:Peter, the manufacturer recommends spacing every 3ft and keeping the lights 1-1.5ft above the ground.
