I have 14 GE dimmer switches (12724) and it’s very annoying that they always remember the last dim level. Although my LEDs can be dimmed all the way down to 1% after they have been turned on, they cannot turn on without at least 10% power. Every night my parents keep the dimmers at the lowest level for a couple hours before sleeping. The next day, they get irritated when they press the switch and the lights don’t come on.
How do I make these dimmers turn on at full brightness when someone presses the physical switch? I’ve tried a SmartApp solution that sends a 100% brightness command when a switch is pressed, but I’ve found it to be too slow and inconsistent. Instead I’d like to program the switch itself, perhaps using a more sophisticated secondary controller. Does anyone know how to do this?
If this turns out to be impossible, I may have to switch to different dimmers. Do you have any recommendations?
