    Hi, are there any wall switches which are compatible with low wattage non-dim LED’s?

    Thanks

    no – all the wall switches are dimmers and require dimmable bulbs

    are there any other brands which allow low wattage non-dim LED’s to be switched on and off?

    A smart switch which can be wired into the conventional light switch where there is just a live and a switch live connection has to get its power for operation by using a small current even when nominally off. This current has then to flow through the lamp and it is this which usually causes a problem with most non-dimmable LEDS. They only need a few mA and they will then either glow dimly or start flickering on and off.

    If your switches have a neutral wire as in some modern builds then there is the possibility to use a smart switch which powers of the live and neutral and avoids the problem.

    No Lightwaverf dimmer switches don’t use the neutral. Once you know which the live and switched live are just wire those into the dimmer as described and leave the neutral alone.
