    Insteon (PWM) dimmer modules aren't the problem with LED lights. The bulbs themselves (although they are labeled as "dimmable") really don't work well. Two things happen when dimmed below 50%. First, the color spectrum shifts from warm white to cool white and second, the bulbs start to flicker at low PWM ddimming values.....Somebody tell me a brand of 120 VAC LED bulb that keeps it's warm color flicker-free when dimmed....Sticking with incandescent!

      Sylvania,but not dimmable to zero.
      Message from Forum Admin: stusviews passed away in April 2018. Stu was a huge fan of Insteon and a huge presence on both the Smarthome and Insteon forums, helping thousands of us along the way (he had nearly 20,000 posts to his name). We thank him for his contributions, dedication, and passion for making the Smart Home a reality. He will truly be missed.

        Philips warm glow comes to closest to incandescents that I've found. They dim low and come on low as well.
