Do your pushbutton switches work with LED lights?
Yes. Our push button dimmers have been successfully tested with LED light bulbs from Cree, Philips, Utilitech, Sylvania, Fiet Electric, EarthLED, and OSRAM. Other LED bulbs and fixtures may work successfully, too, but would require testing on your part. Some issues have been reported by customers with LED ribbon lighting, with the bulbs dimming to 15 to 20% then no longer dimming or shutting off completely. When using LED's in a multi-bulb light fixture or controlling multiple lighting fixtures with a single dimmer, all LED bulbs/fixtures must be from the same manufacturer or you will experience issues. We suggest using Cree LED light bulbs as those worked the best with our push-button dimmers.
