The Wife and I are remodeling our kitchen and dining room, and I need roughly 3 non dimming switches and 2 dimming switches. Both of the dimmers will control multiple dimmable LED can lights.
The big caveat is that my wife really likes the tactile feel of a nonsmart paddle switch. The default-in-the-middle type irk her, so I started trying to locate tactile switches. I haven’t found any that actually have a tactile feel, but as soon as I could I bought a aeon labs nano dimmer. It’s not great.
It’s currently installed with a standard paddle for a test with 6 10W Great Value Dimmable LED Bulbs. It has taken a great deal of tweaking just to get them to function and they still either flicker or just straight up strobe. We haven’t updated the wiring yet, so maybe this thing is just really bad at 2 wire installs, but I don’t know.
Do I have any other options for tactile paddles? I know that Qubino has one, but sourcing seems difficult. In a perfect world, I would buy 3 AL Nano switches and 2 Dimmers and put them behind regular paddles and everything would be great. In this world, it would be a flickery stroby nightmare.
