    Reverse Phase Ceseta?

    Hello,

    I am currently installing 45 recessed LEDs in my home (Consumer Electric T67's found at Home Depot).

    My plan is to put 8 lights (in the living room) on a single dimmer, hopefully a Caseta, with a Pico installed on another wall as a 3-way, as well as an additional Pico for remote use. I would also put a similar setup in 2 bedrooms, which would have 4 lights per room.

    After reading many reports of these particular lights "buzzing" when dimmed, I'm looking for a Reverse Phase dimmer, but am attracted to the Caseta as I'd like to use a SmartBridge and control the lights from a phone.

    Is there a reverse phase control based Caseta dimmer? If not, what other products should I look in to? I was also considering the Maestro Wireless (if there is reverse phase model) but can't find whether the SmartBridge supports Maestro.

    At this point I've spent almost $2,000 on the lights and am more inclined to select a different dimmer (which I haven't purchased yet) than to return/exchange all the lights.

    Thank you,
    Scott

    I used a lot of TCP LED bulbs, and they had least buzz out of all LEDs I have tried so far. And that was on several different forward phase dimmers - actually, these bulbs work worse on reverse phase dimmer. I would say return your lights and look for a better ones.

    There will be a solution coming after LightFair. Should see an official Lutron solution after that.

    Excellent. I've been thinking there were probably going to be some more releases as the Caseta product line seems pretty new.

    I can't wait to see what is announced.
