I’m replacing some
Leviton dz6hd-1bz dimmers with LZW31-SN and one feature they have that I’d love to see is a “Load Type” that you can select between Incandescent, CFL, and LED.
The LED setting sends 100% power for a short time (maybe a few 100ms) when turning the load on, this allows for lower initial dim levels.
For example the switch I’m replacing will only go from cold-off to on at a minimum of 45%. But if I turn it to 100% and then immediately to 35% the lights stay on solid.
After reading your post it explains the behavior I’m seeing in my non smart Lutron Skylark dimmer. I always wondered why it would flash bright before going to minimum dim level. I could see this being a nice to have feature.
This is interesting and apologies for not seeing it earlier.
@EricM_Inovelli & @Darwyn_Inovelli – this could be something we take a look at for our dimmer switches.
Thanks for the suggestion. We will look into adding this feature.
Cool - this is similar to the feature I was referring to in point 2 of this post:
Since this is a new build, it might be time to fix the ramping and dimming issues with the current dimmer series switches.
Please implement multiple dimming curve profiles or the ability to set custom dimming curve profiles. Optimally, it would be two settings, one setting that allows for some pre-defined profiles (linear, logarithmic, etc), and one setting that allows for a custom profile (i.e. at 10%, provide 20% power, at 20%, provide 21% power, at 30% provide 50% power).
