I switched one of our small can up lights to LED and in the off position, it still gives off a little light. Dims up and down just fine. Is this normal, my bulb or an older Vizia RF+ module that doesnt handle LED? Thanks. SJ

I’ve found that most LED bulbs work well with my Vizia RF+ dimmers, but I have found some bulbs that exhibit that same behavior. I have three BR30s on one dimmer and bought some LEDs last weekend to replace the incandescents and they would not turn off. I had to leave one incandescent in place for it to work. I may try and find some other (ie more expensive LEDs) for this application, but since the incandescents are only 15W each, it’s really not worth it.

I’ve had the best luck with Sunbeam branded ones that Costco used to carry. I’ve used the higher end Philips ones more recently and they work well too.
