    Feit 74202 & 74206 Compatibility Report

    I couldn't find anyone who'd tested these, so I bought one each of the Feit 74202/CA (4-inch edge-lit, round, selectable color (3000-4000-5000) on the fixture or by toggling the light switch, 500-lumen, 6.5-watt) and 74206/CA (same, but 6-inch, 800-lumen, 10.5-watt). I really like edge-lit fixtures, as you don't have the glare that normal LED fixtures give off. These are also California Title 24 compliant if you don't use the screw-in adapter. There is also a hard-to-find V2 version that is $2 cheaper and does not include the adapter. These fixtures are made exclusively for Home Depot.The Rev code on the 74202 is 082818-17 (factory 0828, Manufactured in the 17th week of 2018).The Rev code on the 74206 is 062018-17 (factory 0620, Manufactured in the 17th week of 2018).Feit claims they are always improving dimmer compatibility, so later revs may perform better (or worse).I felt the need to test these because I have previously installed the 15-inch version, 74212/HD, and it did not work with either the standard Caséta dimmer nor Lutron's Maestro CL Dimmer with Motion Sensor. Attached to either, the light just continued to flash. But the 1'x4' rectangular version, FP1X4/4WY/WH/HD, did work with the Caséta dimmer in my brief testing.So, the results:Both the 74202/CA and 74206/CA in their current revisions, did basically work. They did not show any light in the off position, looked good at even the lowest dim setting, and I could change colors at the switch, including the reset sequence. However, when turned on, they did briefly flash before ramping up. They also have a very slight buzz, which was louder in the 6-inch version than the 4-inch. I will probably go ahead and install these in one room before using them in additional rooms and waiting for a newer revision.

    Formatting broken on Chrome and Firefox. Also can't quote. Been this way for months now. Hoping someone at Lutron can get it sorted. Considering your other post, thank you for posting your field tests of the Feit bulbs. I find most Feits do well, but not great. Better performance on the neutral dimmers.

    It doesn't work in Safari either. It looks like this Lutron site uses vBulletin version 4.2.5. The current version is 5+.
