I recently purchased a GE Jasco Dimmer Switch model 45612. I wired it up fine, i got it connected to smart things fine, and I can control it fine. Here is where i have run into a problem. When the switch is off I get light flicker (LED Bulbs) I thought it was weird for so much current to be running through the circuit to allow for the bulbs to be partially lit so i decided to check out the information from from My Devices.
From the current States report i get a correct feedback of ON or OFF. But the level report when off reads 38% I thought this was really high as i interpreted that as running at 38% load while OFF! This seems like an incredible waste of electricty to me. However when the switch is in the ON state i get a Level reading of 38-40% Which makes me think it isn’t registering this correctly at all. I emailed Jasco and they gave me a boiler plate response that the switch won’t work with LED bulbs only incandescent, which is absolutely ridiculous and my lengthy response to them sited how this is the case which doesn’t need to be rehashed here.
I thought about adding a resistor or trying a single incandescent bulb on the same circuit to see if that removes the flicker. My main concern for this thread topic is the reporting of the smart things platform of a level of 38% which doesn’t seem to change even when the switch state changes to ON or OFF.
I will attempt to add screen shots of my IDE Screen.
