Flickering lights after installing a Deako Smart Dimmer is not a cause for panic. However, as flickering, blinking, or flashing behavior not very desirable, we've prepared a short list to troubleshoot this behavior.
Not all light bulbs support dimming. Check our Smart Dimmer Specs to ensure your bulb type is supported.
Deako Smart Dimmers operate through reverse-phase dimming (also known as trailing edge dimming) and support ELV fixtures.
Count how many light bulbs are being dimmed by one switch. If there are many bulbs and check the total wattage in use against our Smart Dimmer Specs.
Deako backplate wires are polarity sensitive.
If you experience flickering on a light bulb that is physically controlled by more than one switch, have an electrician check the wiring to ensure:
- The neutral wire for the fixture is connected to the same neutral as the switch.
- Travelers are not crossed between the two switches.
Lights still flickering?
