Dimable LED switches


Having trouble finding a dimmable switch for my LED lit art lamp. Any suggestions? A Cooper 9530 doesn't work

Does the lamp have a dimmable driver? If not, no dimmer will be compatible.

HD and Lowes both sell LED dimmers manufactured by Lutron and Leviton. I have used both with success.

Your LED light will contain some electronic circuitry
to regulate the power to the leds.
This circuit might not be designed to be dimmable,
in which case no dimmer will work !
You must have both - dimmable power supply
and correct type of dimmer !
If you are really keen you might be able to replace
the LED driver circuit with a dimmable type.
But it will effect your warranty if you have any !
