Model: HS220
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have found that my dimmer switches, all of the 3 i have installed, cause my LED bulbs to flicker ONCE as they ramp up to 100%.  if i set them to 98%, they do not.  i am positive that it is not a wiring or bulb issue (persay)...  as you already have given us the ability to set a lower limit, please add an upper limit, which would fix my issue completely.  i have read on the forums other people with the same issue, and i suspect this would fix their issues as well

 

 

thanks!

@adammsu 

 

there is a calibration tool built into the app.  Here is an FAQ about it.  Have you tired this feature yet?

Yes, however the calibration tool only sets the LOW end, not the UPPER end. what needs to be address with this request is the UPPER end.

 I second this feature request. I have installed other dimmer switches that have an upper threshold as well as a lower threshold (Lutron Sunnata), and this solves several problems:

1) Some dimmable LEDs at full brightness will flash on each pulse sent by smart dimmers. This stops at any other brightness setting.

2) Some dimmable LEDs don't really change brightness much until below about 50%. Reducing the upper threshold makes them behave more linearly.

3) Some lighting setups with a lot of lights were designed for 10-40W incandescent bulbs. It's difficult to find dimmable LEDs that are less than 60W equivalent, so you end up with way too much brightness. Reducing the maximum to the highest comfortable level is a great solution.

  @adammsu I would love to see this feature as well. I'm having the exact same issue with lights flashing once when set to 100%. If I set them to 99% or anything else, no problem. This is happening with multiple switches (HS220 & KS230) on different LED fixtures that are dimmable so there's no compatibility or wiring issues. Having an adjustable max brightness setting would solve the issue and make for a far better experience.

Ditto, same issue here, would be an excellent feature to add. Configurable max brightness. Seems simple enough to implement.

@Carl This would also solve the issue I am facing with my LED's flashing once at 100% brightness. Can we have a future request submitted?

Hello All,

 

This has already been added to the request submission.  I can't make any guarantees but we will let the development team know the interest in this is here.
