Model: HS220  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have installed SImpleLED dimmable 9W potlight with Kasa smart Dimmer.

When its on 100% capacity, its runs without any issue.But whenever i try to dim it to 50% or 25%, My Polights flickers a lot.

 

Does anyone knows here whats going on ? Any ways to fix that ?

Did you go through the dimming configuration? Flickering usually happens when the dimmer circuit isn't passing enough voltage to the bulb. Once you set the lower limit, the switch will set the buttons' dim range from there to max.

 

  1. Go into the app and open up the screen for a dimmer.
  2. Tap the gear icon in the upper right.
  3. Tap on Dimming Calibration near the bottom
  4. Slowly tap the dimming icon until the light starts to flicker.
  5. Tap the brighten icon once, check that the flicker has stopped -- repeat slowly, checking each time until the flickering stops.
  6. Once the flickering has stopped, that's your lower voltage limit. Set it and forget it.

I did do calibration of dimmer quite a few times. Sometimes it works fine but other times its flickers. It's kind of unpredictable. But it does flicker eventually.

Hello@SmartThings 

  • If light flicker at low end of dimming range, try to increase lower end of dimming range through Kasa APP- Dimming Calibration .

Does that help if you set short dimming range? 

  • HS200 dimming type is forward-phase control (TRIAC based), can you check bulb spec or confirm with lamp support if the Led support Triac based dimmer? 

Please check out this FAQ for details: What should I do if the HS220 cannot dim the light properly?

 

May I have know the model of the bulb / lamp, can I have a link of the bulb, thank you.
