    Hi. Do you sell, or do you plan to sell, non-dimmable light switches? Dimming does not interest me and I would like the flexibility to choose any bulb type I like.

    During the setup of the switch, when using the wifi link you can assign it as "on/off" or "dimmer". It would then function as an on/off when using the remotes or iPhone/android but maybe someone else can test that it applies to the lightswitch itself. I’m on holidays at the moment so can’t test it for you.

    Certainly by not having an interest in dimming you can save an awful lot on LED bulbs <img src=” title=”Smile” />

    I did not realise that and wondered myself about it. This feature should maybe made clear in the product description.

    Back from holidays and I’ve tried it out.

    During set-up you can assign the lights as on/off only and this works perfectly on the iphone as it doesn’t give you the option to dim any more, just on/off. When using the light switch or handheld remote though, the dimming still functions when you hold the button down. I’m not sure if it’s a problem though as it’s difficult to inadvertently activate the dimming cycle… you have to consciously switch on the lights by pressing the on button once, then you have to hold down the off button and wait till it starts to dim.

    I don’t know what happens to non-dimmable LED bulbs when you try to dim them… if it damaged them it would be an issue alright.

    Just to add, you can change the type of "Switch" at any time after installation from Dimmer to On/Off and back again.
