    Need help with 2001 Homework system and LED bulbs

    This is maddening. I purchased a system and am told it wasn't meant to be used with LED. I'm hoping someone here has figured out how to make this thing work with modern LED bulbs.

    What system? Homeworks original? What devices?

    2001 would most likely have been HomeWorks Illumination but it could be HomeWorks original. If you have panel based controls, they will have a neutral connection so the minimum load will be around 10 watts. You will need forward phase/leading edge LEDs to work with them. They are typically listed as "dimmable with incandescent dimmers." Not all LEDs are created equal. I have had a success with Cree and the EcoSmart (Home Depot store brand).

    In-wall dimmers are not likely to have a neutral connection so the minimum load is going to be 50-60 watts. That's going to be hard to achieve with LEDs only. These will also need to be forward phase/leading edge.
