I have a clean slate. Building a new home, I have SmartThings and would like to test the dimmer / LED bulb combo for the many cans I have in the new home we are building. I will want “warm” *low kelvin) lighting except for task areas (kitchen).
We plan on going all LED except for some edison special bulbs.
I have been looking at many combos of switches and bulbs. It seems there is a new wave of cheaper, longer lasting LED bulbs (again for 5" cans) at least that is what the marketing says… I am looking for real world opinions.
Also I have seen horror stories about dimmers that don’t work with LEDs well… Lutron seems to have the best overall but they are expensive when you build a whole house. Zigbee vs. Zwave?
In general I am looking for recommendations of what will be the most cost efficient, WORKING solution for LED dimmers and bulbs that work with ST.
What are TODAY’s recommendations? (much of what I see seems dated)
