LED lighting has become a popular solution for people looking to reduce their energy consumption.
An LED lamp is unlike a traditional filament lightbulb, as it has built-in electronics. Unfortunately, as yet there are few agreed standards in the LED lighting market on how to design LED lamps. This means that different varieties of LED lamps are designed and subsequently behave differently when dimming. This has caused a problem for dimmer manafacturers who have to try to design their dimmers to work with all LED types, many of which are not even designed to be dimmable.
The latest generation of Lightwave dimmer switches have been purpose designed by specialist engineers in the UK to work with dimmable LEDs. Our dimmers are some of the most versatile and compatible on the market, and they have built-in automatic calibration technology to be able to adjust and adapt to as many LEDs as possible. The dimming range can also be manually adjusted to add further compatibility, as some LEDs may flicker at high or low ranges.
We have also designed our dimmers to adapt to changing technology, and we are making constant adjustments using tailored firmware updates to refine their performance. This means that they should become even more capable over time.
We recommend checking our Generation 1 & 2 compatibility charts located in this section to find lamps that we have tested to verify their performance with Lightwave Dimmers.
