Dimmer adjustment allows for the optimal dimming experience no matter what. These settings help prevent your lights from flickering and give you better control over dimming by allowing you to set the minimum and maximum dim level for your light. This optimization of dim levels is sometimes referred to as “trim.”
Before you begin...
Adjust the dim range
Navigate to the Home page of the Deako app
Tap edit in the upper right, then tap the arrow to the right of the light you would like to change the settings for.
Select your bulb type
Your dimmer will be set to default automatically. Select LED if your dimmer is controlling LED bulbs and Incandescent if your dimmer is controlling incandescent bulbs.
Set min and max dim level
To adjust minimum dim level, use the slider and adjust the level so the light is on but just visible.
Tip: if you are using an LED bulb, you may need to move the min slider far up and then move it down to the lowest dim. This is because the energy required to turn on an LED is higher than the energy required to keep it on at a low dim level.
Most of the time maximum dim level does not need to be adjusted. For a little bit of energy savings, you can use the slider to adjust the level down until you notice a change in the brightness. Then shift slider back up to just before you noticed the lights dim. This ensures the light is using the least amount of energy for the highest possible brightness.
Hit Save in the upper right corner to save your settings. You can navigate back to your switch’s setting page at any time if you wish to change your settings.
