Hi. I’ve recently moved into a new house and had all new lights and dimmers installed. The dimmers I used are the Leviton Vizia RF+ VRMX1-1LZ universal dimmers and I love them - honestly they’re every bit as reliable as the Homeworks system I had in my old house - although they still feel just a bit ‘cheaper’ than the Lutron alternatives. And they actually work with SmartThings so that’s a huge plus!
The problem is that the world has all moved to LED lighting since I last bought lighting and LEDs can’t seem to dim very well. I’ve got a motion sensor that turns the lights on in my bathroom at night so I don’t pee on the floor but unfortunately the minimum 10% dim level ST uses practically blinds me in the middle of the night. Does anyone have any suggestions on 4" recessed cans that can achieve a super-low dim level? I’m sure I’m not the only person who has wanted a lower dim level for a theater room, a bathroom, etc. I’ve bought every 4" can Home Depot had in stock and think the Philips (50W equivalent) is probably the dimmest of the ones I’ve found, but it’s still way too bright for my needs. FYI I’ve tried LED2, Philips, and soft white and daylight Crees. Even 1% brightness in SmartThings on the dimmer makes the lights look pretty bright.
Does anyone have any suggestions on a dimmer (lower-light) LED? Or should I give up and just go back to an incandescent can where I need super-low-light? If a different dimmer switch might change my situation I’m all ears to that as well. I’d also consider covering most of the can with masking tape, but I’m pretty sure the wife and designer wouldn’t like that much.
Thanks in advance everyone!
