I’ve installed a number of Leviton VRMX1-1LZ 1000W Vizia RF Z-Wave Universal Scene Capable Dimmers.
They previously controlled chandeliers which each had 8-20 incandescent bulbs. I was slow to convert to LED because I hated the way the initial egg-shaped bulbs looked. Recently I purchased a large number of 600 lumen LED bulbs which use only 6 watts versus the 60 watt incandescents.
While changing the bulbs with the switch turned off, I noticed they immediately started glowing at around 15-20% of full brightness. The switches apparently “leak” current across the circuit even when in the off position.
I’ve re-checked the wiring and tried multiple switches/fixtures, but it’s the same result for all of them.
I’d really like to replace my switches with Z-wave dimmers that can actually turn the lights off when not in use.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
If so, what replacement switch did you find to solve it?
