Lights Flicker with My ZEN72 Dimmer Switch

LED lights flickering might be due to driver incompatibility between the bulb and dimmer. 

The executive element in the ZEN72 Dimmer switches is TRIAC, a leading edge driver. If your LED bulbs call for a dimmer that uses a trailing edge driver, it could cause the lights in your installation to flicker.


If you'd prefer not to change the bulbs, you can try adding a bypass to the load.


Another important details is to make sure your LED bulbs are labeled as dimmable. On/off LED bulbs are not compatible with dimmers and will not perform correctly. 


Never use a Z-Wave dimmer with smart bulbs unless you disable paddle control on them first. Dimming smart bulbs from a wall dimmer may damage your equipment.
