Calhoun lights

Recommended Posts

I know every one is super busy but Is it possible to use a household style dimmer to control a string of C9 retrofit led lamps? The type that contains five LEDs. They are way to bright for my display.

Not sure about the dimmer you referenced but if you are using LOR simply program that channel at less than 100%. Personally all my LEDs only go to a max of 75% because they are too bright.

In General - most older household dimmers will not work with LED. Only dimmers with a neutral connection (white cable) work reliably with LED lights. Conventional household dimmers need between 40 and 60 Watt incandescent load to work.

Also - if you have your C9 already on a LOR channel, I would not add a second dimmer in line, this could cause serious problems.
