I have installed another red series dimmer in a different location, but also a 3-way. Previously I had issues with an on/off in another location and through that I learned a lot about the wiring etc and that I needed a dimmer there as well.
In this new location, the switches are controlling 6 cree BR30 led’s in my kitchen. I have everything wired and working, device handler installed and set up as well. There is buzzing with these bulbs…but it did that before as well, I have just come to deal with it. According to the app, at 90%, they are drawing 43 watts. These are dimmable bulbs.
What I am having trouble with is setting the speeds and rates to have them do what I want. Where I put the other dimmer, those act as on/off because they are non dimmable bulbs. That was easy, set everything to 0.
In this new location, I have everything again set to 0 while testing so they are acting as on/off. This is what I would like to have them do:
- Always default to full on and full off when turned on and off respectively by the switch or through my hub. (I have this working)
- Once on, if I wish, be able to dim down by holding the down toggle. I have set the minimum to 5%. I should also be able to dim back up by holding the up toggle. I have the maximum set to 90%.
I have tried playing with the dimming speed and rate but I cannot seem to make this happen. I would also like the dimming to be smooth and not stepped if possible. Not sure if this can happen though with my bulbs.
