Thread: Is there an approved list of LED bulbs that work with Hybrid Keypad?

    Lightbulb Is there an approved list of LED bulbs that work with Hybrid Keypad?

    I've read most of the posts on the forum about LEDs & Hybrid keypads and it seems the advice is to just give the LED bulb a try.

    Is there not an approved/tested list of LED bulbs that work with Hybrid Keypad?

    This app note does not mention Hybrid keypads:

    Any suggestions or recommendations would be most appreciated!

    Thank you for your time!

    I've had good luck with hybrid keypads controlling various LED bulbs. None of it is supported. I don't know if it's a dimming performance issue, a UL issue, or maybe a RF communication issue, but there is something about the arrangement that is not supported.
    I'd say do what you can to test performance ahead of time, and use the 'unknown LED' wattage rule-of-thumb Lutron uses: each LED bulb is equivalent to 100watt incandescent. This means you'll be limited to 4 bulbs per keypad.

    Like any LED light source on a dimmer, you'll want to bank some extra time to adjust the high and low limits to get the lamps to dim properly.

    Good luck!

    I had installed a couple of hybrid dimmers with TCP bulbs, one was with 4 bulbs, another with 5. It worked out quite well - they dimmed down to 2% if not lower.
