Recommendations from Brilliant

  • When connecting to ceiling fans and other motor-driven appliances, you should evaluate whether you need any extra surge protection. These types of appliances should only be configured as on/off devices, and should not be dimmed or adjusted for speed.
  • The dimming option will work with incandescent, halogen, or dimmable CFL or dimmable LED bulbs.
  • Not all CFL and LED bulbs are rated as dimmable, so be sure to check on the box that came with your bulb, or consult the manufacturer.
