I’ve seen it said a couple of times that a dimmer bypass may not be needed if a neutral is available at the switch.
I’ve found this not to be the case and a bypass is needed, that or swap out a couple of 4W Leds for 35w halogen.
Can anyone confirm whether they have successfully installed a dimmer 2 without a bypass on a load such as 4 x 4w GU10 Leds?
Also, as the led bulbs (when they are the only load) remain slightly lit when the dimmer is “off”, when the bypass is installed is this current still present but just soaked up? I.e am I actually consuming power when the switch is “off”.
In this case would I be better with FGS-213 as a relay without dry contacts to switch an led load (dimmable not required)
