Customer Questions & Answers

Will this one dimmer handle 6 65 W equivalent bulbs?

I have used this dimmer on 2 other set ups but they do not have 6 bulbs---only 4.
Asked by: energyray
If your bulbs are incandescent (old style bulbs) or halogen, the total power is 6*65 = 390 Watts. This dimmer can handle 800 Watts, so yes. If your bulbs are ~ 9 Watt (equivalent to 65 W incandescent), the total is 8*9=72 Watts, and the dimmer can handle that too.

Can you use two dimmers in a three way circuit

Asked by: bill
No...I found out the hard way and installed 2 of these switches on the 3 way circuit that operated one light fixture and the bulbs would not stop blinking. I re-installed the old non-dimmer switch back in one of the two switches and it now works fine.

Does this switch have a night light when it is off?

Will these switches flicker at low settings with GE LED 10w dimmable recessed downlights (model # 14812)?

I currently have two sets of 3 of these downlights installed. When they are dimmed, they flicker badly. I don't know the brand of the dimmable switch currently installed (but I know it's not Lutron). The box for these lights lists the Skylark Contour CTCL-153P as a compatible dimmer. I don't want to go to the trouble of changing the switches if they are still going to flicker at the lower settings.
Asked by: nomoflicker
I have 4" recessed Halo fixtures, with no flicker nor hum. I have 2 sets of three also. I was told this was the best switch for dimmable LEDs....I believe them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not compatible with Philips Ambien LED MR16 When first used with this dimmer at any setting but full-on, these lights flicker and then sometimes change to about 3/4 on no matter then dimmer setting. This was with 2 tracks of 3 lamp fixtures connected. Disconnecting one or the other of the tracks gave better performance. The Philips lamps are rated 10 watts, and the dimmer is rated up to 150 watts for LED lamps, so it's odd it can't handle these two tracks at once well. Even odder, after reconnecting both tracks, the dimmer seems more stable, but will intermittently be at one of two significantly different brightness near the bottom of the slider range. The particular MR16 lamp can be found by entering 046677414962 in the search field at HomeDepot dot com. The track unit is 008938246682.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised, great value! I purchased 2 of these dimmers and have each controlling 6 Ecosmart 6" LED retrofits ECO-575L. I am extremely happy with their performance and can honestly say that it is a good product. Like another reviewer said, there is an adjustment wheel, and it all depends on the dimming ability of your bulbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wall switch dimmer for LED down lights This dimmer control needs more refined electrical engineering. We are using it to control four, 14watt retrofit LED down lights, recessed in our bathroom ceiling. At full brightness, they are brighter than the 85w reflector incandescent bulbs they replaced and we're very happy with the new lights. The problem shows up as annoying light flickering in random dimming positions. Instructions in the dimmer package instruct you adjust a small lever, on the dimmer body, to eliminate any flickering. Doesn't work well enough. You just have to avoid some dimming levels.

The Luton Sklylark Contour CFL-LED dimmer is a great dimmer since you can use it in a single pole or 3-way installation. It installed easily and works smoothly. I used it in a 3-way application over our kitchen center island to be able to dimm three LED lights (60watt equivalent ea). However, if you need to dim your lights so that they approach a night light level (< 15% of maximum), then this dimmer isn't suited. For dimming to low light levels, the Lutron Maestro dimmer works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not compatable with Utilitech LED G2560F-WW I have 4 LED blubs in the bathroom fixture, and this dimmer works very poorly. Utilitech 40-Watt LA19DM/LED don't work either. My other Lutron dimmer (from another store) works much better with 3 different brands of LED bulbs. It only blinks a little, when set for 75% max brightness. The bathroom LEDs will work fine for a while, then later they won't come on until they blink for a few minutes.. Or, won't come on at all, with the slider down all the way. It seems like the dimmer doesn't work with a light load. (low amps). Maybe it's very sensitive to any change in line voltage, when the LEDs are only drawing a few watts of power? If I replace one of the LEDs with a 30w incandescent blub, it works MUCH better. Seems like a max 32w load is not enough for this dimmer. I guess it must be rated for about 600w max and 32w is about 5% of 600w.. Seems like lower LED power use has made this dimmer obsolete.. Precise setting the low limit adjustment isn't possible. Each time I cycle the LEDs off and back on, they will turn on at a different brightness level. Now, we are using it with two incandescent blubs in the middle, with two LED blubs on the ends of the light fixture. Pretty lame.. My wife hates LED lights now. She is furious that I have wasted so much money on LED blubs! At least the other LEDs in the house are working pretty well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product, but doesn't work for me. I bought a couple of these, and wasn't happy with the way they function. I was mistaken about how I use my lighting. It turns out that I turn the lights on and off far more than I dim them. So the big dimmer feature is too much. The horizontal on/off switch is difficult to use on a regular basis. It just doesn't feel right. I did keep this for a room that isn't used as much. Having the dimming feature is a nice edition to replace a simple switch. One thing that might be tripping some people up with this product, is not setting the Dimmer Adjustment Dial. This is not exposed when the plate is on. Around the edge you will find a little geared wheel, which allows you to set the dimming range. Just something to keep in mind if it doesn't dim how you expect. I bought the Diva, which is much more useful, for me anyway.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very noisy with CREE LED lights. I tried to use this dimmer to control three 12.5 watt LED recessed lights I also bought at Home Depot. It buzzes which is quite annoying. The lights say Cree on the back which confirms what a previous post said about them not working wtih Cree lights. I'll be returning this dimmer and hope for better luck with the next one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Good & Works Flawlessly First of all, I checked the Lutron website and confirmed that my LED lamps were compatible with this dimmer. I purchased the dimmer at our local Home Depot, which had a nice display with the various Lutron products (I originally went in the store and was going to buy the Lutron Maestro but the Skylark worked out better for my needs). I installed the dimmer, which took all of about 5 minutes, and Yes you must turn off the the circuit breaker to avoid damaging the dimmer switch. And now my LED lamps are working GREAT, they dim very low with the slide all the way down. Absolutely No Flickering, No Humming/Buzzing. Very Happy with this purchase. My LED lights are Feit brand, BR30 style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Limited Dimming Range This switch has a very limiting CFL Bulb dimming range. You can adjust this range by using the small color coded "lower" dimming wheel (read install instructions with switch). The default setting is green (limited Low Dim Range). When you try using the next 3 settings- Blue- Orange-Purple-, you get lamp flicker, and extreme slider control sensitivity. Also, when CFL bulbs are dimmed, you get a rather annoying, loud, "HUMMM" from the CFL Bulbs. Lucky for me Home Depot has a great product return policy. This product does not work well with CFL Lamps (bulbs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update - bulb important THIS UPDATES MY REVIEW OF June 16 2016. I tried several bulbs which indicated they would work, however did not work optimally. Those names will not be mentioned, but the bulb that now works properly all the time (and dims nicely) is a Phillips Soft White dimmable LED 60 watt equivalent. I don't care for the softer, more traditional 'warmer' glow of the light (very similar to a standard incandescent in color), but it works the way it should. I'll probably look for this brand/ style in the 'Daylight' model. Didn't mean to pan the switch when it, in fact, will work properly 100% of the time with the proper bulb.

I like this dimmer because it ha a nice large on-off switch as well as a nice wide, aesthetically pleasing dimming handle. Overall has good dimming range for LED bulbs and incandescent bulbs. I tried it with 3-40 watt incandescent bulbs and 2-40 watt equivalent CREE LED bulbs. The incandescent bulbs have a wider dimming range than the LED bulbs, which is normal. Don't use it in a bathroom unless it has some lighting, even a night light. Most visititors expect to pull up on a toggle in a bathroom and will have to fumble to turn it on. I have a GFCI adjacent to it with a dual wall-plate. The GFCI has built-in LED night lighting. This light is enough to see the dimmer on-off switch in the dark. Not recommended in any dark location or you will fumble to turn it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality product I bought this because my old dimmer wasn't compatible with the LED recessed lights I purchased. Dimmer works great and easy to install. Only 2 wires plus the ground. There's an additional red wire that I believe is for a 3 way switch. The dimmer has a dial (hidden when the face plate is attached) that allows you to adjust the minimum brightness. This alleviates low-light flickering and allows the installer to preset the minimum brightness level. Very cool feature and one I wasn't expecting. I think it's priced a little too high for the simple look it provides. Other dimmers (the non LED ones) look better and are the same price as this one. Instead of almost 23 dollars, I think 18 would be a better fit.

This one had the layout we were looking for. Separate on-off with good sized slide. We'd had push button knob and large on-off toggle with small slide next to it, neither suited our needs. So I bought this one. The reason for the low rating is that at the bottom the light is definitely dimmed. But when moving slide up it gets to almost full brightness way before top. This is what makes it a 2 of 5 for me.

Good price, super easy install, and it worked perfectly with the LED bulbs (5) in the existing fixture. The range of light intensity, from dimmest to full on bright, is super easy to control with the slider. Being able to set it at a brightness level, leave it there while turning the fixture on and off with the toggle switch is a really nice feature. A bonus was being able to find a cover plate that matched the existing ones in the room.

This one was a little more expensive but somewhat "more stylish" than than the others. This was important to my spouse. I liked the fact that it had more explicit instructions than others I have purchased in the past. Although I have put in many switches, I seem to have trouble with these single-pole 3 way switches so the extra diagrams were helpful.

This dimmer does a fine job of dimming my dining room chandelier which uses five LED 25W Equivalent Candelabra Bulbs where the more expensive microprocessor controls would constantly lose their programming and cease to dim after a day or two. If your application uses LED bulbs, this is the one you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great, Installs Easy Installation was simple (for an experienced DIYer) but beware that this device takes a generous amount of box space. The overall switch is aesthetically perfect and operates smoothly. The on/off switch is a bit small since we are accustomed to the large toggle switch. Overall it is a great product.
