I familiar with basic electrical wiring and installed many light switches and outlets in my lifetime. I'm 99% certain it's wired up correctly because everything works OK w regular bulbs just not LED's. After installing the HS210 3-way light switch (only one) in my hall everything seems to work fine except with one issue: when I use an LED bulb it does not completely turn off. The app and switch think that the light is on and indicate so. It will be very dim about 1% brightness. When i swap out the LED bulb with a regular dumb incandescent bulb everything works right as rain again. I tried several varieties and wattages of LED bulbs and the only LED bulb that cooperated the same as an incandescent bulb was an LED Edison type bulb using 6.5 watts. I thought perhaps that the fixture needed a low wattage LED and even tried a 2 watt LED but it stayed dimly lit as well although the switch showed it was in the off position. Once I go over a 6.5 watt LED then the app thinks the switch is always "on" and stays dimly lit. I'm baffled that the switch only works correctly with an incandescent bulb and not LED's albeit for the one kind. Has anyone had similar issues using LED's with these switches? If your switch is working great w LED's what type/kind are you using so I can try some out. Thanks!
