Hello,

I was thinking about installing a dimmer (Lutron Maestro) in place a basic light switch into a computer room for greater control of lighting.

As I understand it, dimmers can put out some noise or RF interference. This model claims superior suppression of interference with radio and TV, but I wonder, what are the odds the dimmer could cause noise issues, inteference with remotes or wi-fi, audio issues, or internet connection issues?

My old downtown loft apartment had dimmers in every room and my wifi worked fine. Never had any issues with wireless connectivity. Basically as long as the dimmers aren't set to the same band that the other wireless devices are running through, you don't run into any trouble that I know of. At least that's the way I understand it. But unless they are broad spectrum dimmers that don't need no band, I think you're fine.
