The latest range of Lightwave dimmer switches have been purpose designed by specialist engineers in the UK to work with dimmable LEDs. Our dimmers are some of the most versatile and compatible on the market, and they have built-in automatic calibration technology to be able to adjust and adapt to as many LEDs as possible. The dimming range can also be manually adjusted to add further compatibility, as some LEDs may flicker at high or low ranges.
We have also designed our dimmers to adapt to changing technology, and we are making constant adjustments using tailored firmware updates to refine their performance. This means that they should become even more capable over time. Please see some of our recommended bulbs below.
