I set mine up in a single-pole configuration with a neutral wire connected. But when the switch is ‘off’ the LED overhead lights are still on (dim, but definitely on). I saw that this was a pretty common issue, and you still need the bypass even in a neutral configuration. Seems like an issue from the get-go…
Well interestingly enough, a week later I was tinkering with another switch in my house (Shelly dimmer2 with a pushbutton dumb switch), and it required that I shut the breaker off to those lights. This breaker also powered the lights/switch where I had the inovelli red dimmer. So after tinkering with the Shelly Dimmer2, I power back up the circuit, and BAM! the inovelli dimmer was working correctly! Including turning all the way off! So for the rest of the day I was pleased that I might not need the bypass for all the other switches I ordered.
But this morning I woke up to find that the switch was still “off”, but the lights were on. Literally nothing changed overnight. I didn’t lose power… I didn’t reboot HA, I didn’t do anything.
Now, I can’t get the physical switch to do anything. It turns on/off, but the lights don’t actually respond. Just the LED on the switch itself. Generally there is some strange lag/sluggishness with the responsiveness of the switch in both the physical switch and through Home Assistant.
After a little bit of frustration, I decided to attempt to recreate my issues. So I flipped the breaker, and lo-and-behold: the lights were able to go all the way off. I then decided to play with the switch to see how well it responded (I am still a bit confused with the settings of the device, so the reaction speeds of dimming/on/off/etc had made me frustrated from before.) After about 5 mins of flipping the switch on/off, dimming from the switch, and from HA, the switch suddenly was unable to turn the lights all the way off.
Not sure what is causing this, but it seems as though the hardware is capable of cutting power to the lights, but I don’t know how to make it stay that way.
How can I troubleshoot this further? I really don’t want to pay $15 more for each switch I intend to install. Especially when I paid to have neutral wires installed in my switchboxes during our renovation
