          This dimmer is one of the new breed of universal dimmers that works with LEDs and CFLs, as well as incandescent and halogen bulbs. The important difference between dimmers that work with LEDs/CFLs and ones that are not specifically designed for them is, LED/CFL designed dimmers have a way to adjust the low end of the dimming range. The Leviton Digital dimmer takes this a step further by letting you change several settings beside the low level on. For example, you can set the fade on and fade off rates. Very cool. Note that the labeling of the dimmer can be confusing. The Home Depot site refers to this dimmer as model R01-DDL06-01M. But there is no such number on the Leviton web site. The product brochure shows two versions of this dimmer: the DDL06-BL and DDL06-1L. The BL version has built-in Bluetooth and can be controlled by a smart phone. The 1L is the one without Bluetooth (this one). The actual package for the dimmer refers to it as the DDL06-1M, so I assume this is one letter newer (upgraded) from the 1L. This dimmer, like most on the market now, works both as a single pole dimmer (one device operates the light) or 3-way dimmer (two devices operate the light). However, this dimmer is NOT compatible with standard 3-way (or 4-way) switches. If you’re planning to use this dimmer in place of a 3-way switch, you will need to buy the matching remote dimmer (DD00R) and replace both 3-way switches. The dimmer also includes a light almond cover as well as the pre-installed white cover. The cover easily snaps off so you can change the color of the dimmer. This dimmer does not come with a wallplate, so , if you don’t have one, you will need a Decora style plate (the wallplate with the large rectangle cut out as opposed to the older style with the little rectangle cutout for the toggle-type switch). When shopping for a dimmer, be aware that some dimmers require that you have access to a ground and/or a neutral wire in the switch box (depending on the features of the dimmer). Be sure you know what your wiring is like before you purchase a dimmer (newer homes won’t be a problem, it’s the older ones you’ll need to check). This dimmer DOES require a ground wire in the switch box. Just for kicks, after installing and testing the dimmer, I disconnected the ground wire to see what would happen. The dimmer is completely inoperable without a ground connection, so be sure you have a ground in the box. Dimmers generally have two ways to connect to your existing wiring: they either have a set of wires coming out of the back and you use the include wire nuts to make the connections, or, like this Leviton dimmer, they have screws. The advantage of having screw connections is, if your electrical box is packed pretty tight with wires, you’re not adding more wires that need to be tucked into the box. Caution: remember to turn off the power before installing the dimmer! There are 4 screws on this dimmer: one green, one black, one red, and one gold with a label covering it. To connect this dimmer in place of a single-pole switch, use the green screw, black screw, and red screw (leave the label covering the gold screw). Connect the ground wire coming from the box to the green screw. For the remaining two wires, one is the “hot” wire (also called the line or power wire) and the other is called the switch-leg, and goes to the light. The instructions tell you to connect the hot wire to the black screw and the switch-leg to the red screw. The problem is that you cannot tell which is which by looking at them. In most cases, both wires will be black (if you have a tester, you can turn on the power and check each wire to ground to see which is hot). Normally, with dimmers it doesn’t matter which wire goes to which screw when used as a single pole device. However, with this dimmer, it does make a difference. If you connect the dimmer and it doesn’t work, just reverse the two wires—that should fix the problem. I checked with Leviton’s technical support and they confirmed that reversing the wires will not harm the dimmer—it just won’t work. To connect the wires, straighten out the wire coming off the screw of the old device, push it under the metal retainer on the screw you’re using, and then tighten the screw. 3-way connections are a little more complicated—you need to remove the label from the covered gold screw. The best way to proceed is to NOT remove your old switch or dimmer before figuring out where the wires will go on the new dimmer. Ignoring the ground, there are usually two screws that are the same color and one screw that is a different color. The wire on the different color screw must go to the black screw on this dimmer. The wires on the two other screws go to the red and gold screws on this dimmer (in any order). I used the Leviton Digital dimmer to replaced a sliding dimmer in my bedroom (one of the few places in my house with new enough wiring that includes a ground). The lighting consists of four LED light bulbs in the fan light (a separate switch operates the fan). After installing and testing it, I programmed the dimmer. This is what makes this dimmer special. You use the rocker switch and dim/bright bar in combination to change the various settings. The instructions are very clear about how make changes, so I won’t repeat it all here. But I’ll will describe the two program mode settings, called A and B. The first setting (A-1) is the Load Type. The default is incandescent; I set it to LED. The second setting (A-2) is Maximum Brightness Level. The default is 100%; I left it as is. The third setting (A-3) is Minimum Brightness Level. The default is set to LED 2; I left it as is because it was just right for my bulbs. The fourth setting (A-4) is Preset ON Level. This lets you set a light level that is turned on every time the dimmer is turn on, instead of it going to the last level set, which is the default; I left it as is. The fifth setting (B-1) is the ON Fade Rate. You can set the rate from 0 (instant) to 25 seconds. The default is 0; I left it as is. The sixth setting (B-2) is the OFF Fade Rate. You can set the rate from 0 (instant) to 25 seconds. The default is 0; I left it as is. The seventh setting (B3) is the LED Options. You can change how the locator and brightness LEDs behave, from on all the time, inactive, or turn off after 5 seconds. The default is both are active all the time (see Photo 1); I changed it so that the locator LED is on all the time, but the brightness LED turns off after 5 seconds (see Photo 2). Hopefully, the small green LED at the bottom won’t disturb my wife (see wife comment below), but if it does, I can easily reprogram the dimmer so both LEDs go off after 5 seconds. This is my first experience with a digital dimmer, and I must say I’m impressed. The programmability is pretty cool and easy to do. The B3 setting is particular handy—the old dimmer I replaced had a somewhat bright locator LED that just about lit up the room when the dimmer was off. This drove my wife nuts when she went to bed—I had to put tape over it, which looked stupid. With this dimmer’s setting for turning off the LEDs, everyone is happy… Overall, the dimmer works very nicely, the Dim/Bright bar works smoothly, but it may take some getting used to if you’ve only had the slider type in the past (the bar acts like a rocker switch). I thought the ON/OFF rocker switch would be mushy because it doesn’t have a positive click like a regular switch—when you press and release it, is springs back to its initial position. But after using it a while, it only takes a light tap and it works well. The dimmer comes with a 5 year warranty. I highly recommend this dimmer.

          I had high hopes for this dimmer. I have A Kichler 5 light chandelier with 60 watt Kichler candelabra LED dimmable bulbs. I had this fixture connected to a another brand of dimmer purportedly capable of dimming led lights. It did dim the bulbs but constantly flickered at low light or intermittently flashed off at higher light intensities. I connected the Leviton dimmer according to directions and programmed it for LED bulbs and was disappointed. The intermittent flashing off stopped, but the dimming performance was bad. Although the dimmer is programmable the dimming wasn't an "infinite" style. When you hold to dimming rocker the lights would change brightness in "steps". It too wasn't able to handle dimming at low brightness levels. On the plus side the Leviton switch came with interchangeable switch paddles so if you want white or ivory you're covered, or if you remodel you just change paddles. I have other Leviton dimmer switches, wifi versions, and they work well but have different led bulb. I ended up reinstalling the oringinal dimmer. One positive is that I discovered the electrician didn't connect a ground, the Leviton switch requires one so I added one, so when I connected the ground to the original switch the intermittent "flashing off" was gone.

          Quality Leviton dimmer for all types of lighting. Note, the model number on the UPC shows it as a DDL06-1M. I mention this because documentation included lists 7 models but not the DDL06-1M. All but 1 boasts Bluetooth connectivity and a Timer feature; this model has neither. Be sure to do a little research and be sure you know what you're getting. The dimmer installed simply and was well labeled for a 3-pole situation. Programming features include light fading and if you want panel LEDs off or on and for how long. I have to say a 6 or 10 second fade after you turn the dimmer off lets you leave the room before you're in the dark (wasn't there a joke about a kid that was so fast he could turn off the light and get in bed before the room was dark...?). Haven't switched these bulbs from incandescent to LEDs yet to can't comment on potential flickering, etc. Overall, a good dimmer, with a couple bells and whistles but if you're looking for Bluetooth and timer control, look at model DDL06-BL.

          I choose this dimmer because of past experience with Leviton Dimmers. I have similar dimmers installed in several rooms of my house and I have been totally satisfied with their performance. This dimmer is one of the latest in technology in that it can be controlled with your Blue Tooth device. Thorough instructions are clear and will lead you to a quick install and programming if needed. After installing this switch I was able to set the brightness with the side dimming bar and then operate the on/off with the main rocker switch. I do not have a Blue Tooth device yet, but I will be ready for the future with this switch. The green led locator indicator serves as a small night light and the Led brightness indicator on the left side adds additional light. This dimmer requires a Ground connection. It is not compatible with Standard 3-Way switches. There is an “Air Gap” switch (see instructions) which allows stopping power to the fixture while you change a bulb.

          I chose this dimmer because of its locator light and its compatibility with halogen (we have) and LED (we might get later). It has a narrower width than Lutron dimmers, which have metal "ears" that stick out on each side. Those make it very difficult to fit a Lutron into a wall box that also contains a duplex AC outlet. My only complaint is that the ground terminal has no "back wire connection" like the other terminals, a clamp that you stick the wire into and then you tighten the terminal screw to hold it in place. The ground terminal is merely a screw and a flat washer. A toothed washer would make it easier to hold the wire in place. However, this is a minor issue. The dimming function is beautiful. The instructions are clear. Be sure you identify in your wall box which wire is load and which wire is hot or it will not work. The locator light at the bottom is excellent, and there is an LED brightness indicator on the side that serves as a second locator light--it looks great and is totally functional. These lights are sufficiently visible in the dark to find easily, which is helpful because our dimmer is installed at a lower location than usual. There are extensive programming instructions for on-off fade rate and brightness--which I did not program, as the defaults are fine for us. There is a program to select operation for load type: incandescent (default), CFL, or LED. We are delighted with this dimmer.

            The is the dimmer of all dimmers for LED lighting. I installed can lights with halogen bulbs about 5 years ago while remodeling the kitchen. Two sets of lights were on dimmers and one group was wired with a regular switch. A few months ago I replaced the halogen bulbs with LEDs and that's when the trouble started. One dimmer was extremely sensitive to minute voltage fluctuations and caused the LEDs to flicker when the heating element in the oven cycled which is on a totally different circuit. The other dimmer had different LED bulbs and it would not turn them completely off. I replaced the first dimmer mentioned with this unit and now the LED bulbs work perfect and can be dimmed as desired. I assume this dimmer will also resolve the problem with my other set of LEDs so I'm going to order another one. The instructions are good taking into account this dimmer will work as a single pole or 3 way switch. One word of caution - this dimmer is deeper than my old one so I had to rework the wiring so it would fit in the box (see photos).

            My personal experience is that this light dimmer is best reserved for newer homes. This light dimmer requires a ground connection to work. No where on the product packaging that I could find is the requirement of a ground connection listed. New homes are required by national electric code to have a direct connection to the service entrance electrical panel or sub panel where a neutral wire is present to include a ground conductor for lighting switches. There are many light dimmers that will work without a ground, requiring only two electrical connections to the lighting circuit. I planned to install this light dimmer in our guest bedroom. While there was a ground conductor, it was not connected at the other end to a ground, so this dimmer did not work. The second location I tired was miswired as I measured 240-volts between one of the wires and the ground connection. I did eventually find a location in our kitchen to replace a dimmer for our under cabinet lighting with this new Leviton light dimmer where it did work. I relocated the kitchen two wire dimmer to our guest bedroom where it worked fine without a ground connection. If you have an older home like me, your home may not have a ground wire at the light switch. The other important thing about installation of this dimmer switch is that it is polarity sensitive. If the line and load wires are reversed, it won't work. Reversing the wires won't damage the dimmer. It just won't work without the correct line/load polarity.
