If you are the sort that wants to be as green as possible, you might be looking at replacing your normal incandescent bulbs with LED alternatives. If you also happen to like using dimmers to control the intensity of the light in your room, you may be aware that normal dimmers don’t work well with LED bulbs. A company called Luxera has announced a new LED lighting kit for the home or office that has everything you need.
The kit is called the Luxera SmartSwitch and it includes the LED bulbs and a special dimmer that will work with the light bulbs. The dimmer switch has a high-tech looking faceplate and a rotary knob. The company promises that the dimmer is flicker free over the entire dimming range.
One of the only problems I see with this kit is that the dimmer looks a bit funky. Depending on the décor of your home, the dimmer might not fit in. If your living room is like mine and has multiple switches in one faceplate, the dimmer doesn't appear to be able to work in that setting.
If you can use the dimmer switch, the kit includes the switch, four PAR30 LED bulbs that are 75W incandescent replacements, the control app, and free shipping. The kit sells for $199.95 and is available at Costco. The LED bulbs are also controllable via a smartphone app that is available on the App Store.
