    You can use 4AO module for dimming with external 3rd party LED driver / dimmer module.

    0-10V

    This is default option, where 0V = 0% = off, 10V = 100% = on

    1. Open Service settings of analog output device

    To save energy, you might want to turn off power supply when all the lights that are powered by it are set to 0%.This will conserve more power when lights are off.

    Take into consideration that response time when turning on power supply can be visible.

    To prolong lifetime of power supply, you should use Smart Rule to turn off power supply after all lights are turned off for certain time:

    1. Open switch that controls Power supply
    2. Add Smart Rule: Equation
