Replaced Lutron Maestro CL LED dimmer switch for Red Series dimmers and these dimmers are giving me lots of problems. Connectivity isn’t an issue - I am able to control seamlessly with SmartThings but I am experiencing:
- Very high minimum light level. With the Lutron I could get the LEDs to a very faint glow. With the Inovelli minimum level is like 27%, which is quite bright. And sometimes it is inconsistent going up and going down. Meaning if the light is off, it won’t turn on until 35%. But if the light is ON, I can lower to 27% before it turns off completely.
- Flickering!!! At 100% and also at random power levels throughout. In the 50s, in the 80s, multiple points in which the light flickers. Sometimes a slow flicker, sometimes a strobe!
- Very “stepped” dimming. I got a very smooth, gradual dimming with the Lutron switches. With the Inovelli you can clearly see the light stepping up and down in brightness.
I’ve installed 2 so far - my house is equipped with the same LEDs throughout. 4" and 6" Sunco lighting recessed LEDs. (https://www.amazon.com/Sunco-Lighting-Recessed-Downlight-Installation/dp/B01N1GCG8R/) and I experienced the above issues in both installations. Neutral in both locations, 4x13 watt LEDs for each.
I would rather not replace all the LEDs in my house. I’m going to try buying the bypass and seeing if that helps… but this is rather disappointing! I had high hopes for these switches. Anyone experience the same?
