Caseta & Dimming LEDs

I replaced a Caseta dimmer switch with the non-dimming version as I’m installing a ceiling fan w/light soon. I’m getting used to tucking and bending wires just so and shoving the switch in with screws ratcheting it snugly in place.

I’ve found dimmer switches are difficult since they can’t have anything but lights as a load and those lights (especially LED) better be perfect in their dimming logic and signal response. And as you should never use non-dimming LEDs with a dimmer, I’ve had to buy new bulbs to replace young non-dimmable LEDs or buggy dimmable LEDs from a few years ago. So far the current crop of FEIT dimmables sold at my local Ace Hardware are fine.

I’m so over using dimmer switches.
