    Very low static noise on Caseta dimmer switch

    Does anybody have any problem with some static noise about 6 inches away from Caseta dimmer? I have been replaced the old one with a new one and there is still some sort of static noise even with my third Caseta switch.
    My old manual switch doesn't have any noise. Every Caseta switch I have install (3 so far) in my house have some static noise when my ear about 6 inches away from the switch.

    I've only heard that when there is a compatibility issue or the device is overloaded.

    The first switch runs (1) 8.5W Ecosmart bulb. The other switch runs (2) 8.5W Phillip bulbs. All of the bulbs are best recommended compatible dimming bulb from Lutron website. It is a high-pitch noise whenever I have my ear very close to the switch. The noise stops when I pull out the FASS Front AccessibleService Switch. Not sure whether I am able to hear this b/c of my young age.

    Solid State dimmers can make a very faint high-pitched noise when they are on. You typically can't hear it unless your ear is very close to the dimmer, and the noise is typically at its loudest at the 1/2 dim level.
