      Is there a two way push button dimmer in the Saturn/ ZEN Series?

      There is no direct product that can achieve this, however we can offer a solutioin so this can be achieved. The solution involves a typical multi-way LED Lighting dimming control set up using ZEN Push Button Bell Press and ICONIC 2-Wire Dimmer Push Button. With the iconic dimmer connected with the 60 Series bell press, the bell press will work like ICONIC Controllink and will dim up and down on a long press,
      turn on and of with a short press.
      For further information please view the attached wiring diagram.
