    Trying to stop my pots from strobing

    I have 4 of these (Philips 6W - https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.1000842552.html) exact PAR20 LEDs connected to an older Caseta (PD-6WCL) Wireless dimmer. When I dim to low they strobe/pulse. I want to stop this. What can I do? Will the PD-5NE fix this?

    Thanks.

    First, you could just adjust the low-end trim to cut of the strobing end of the range. Depending on how robust the electronics they build into a bulb, the strobing range will be less/more.

    My suspicion is that that PD-5NE will give you a potentially lower level of trim without strobing, as I've found that the dimmers and switches that require neutrals are quite a bit more compatible with arbitrary LEDs than the PD-6WCL.

    If you can switch the bulb to a different manufacturer that uses more robust components inside the bulb, that may be a cheaper solution to getting something acceptable than changing the dimmer.

    Thanks for your response. I'm trying to switch the bulbs now, and if needed may do the switch to the PD-5NE.
