Title: Load type on Leviton Dimmer DZ1KD-1BZ/DZ6HD-1BZ
Post by: Sulsa on November 29, 2017, 07:37:17 pm
Per the manual there is supposed to be a parameter to change the load type
0= Incandescent
1= LED
2= CFL

However I am not able to find "Load Type"" in the parameters/variables.  Has anyone gotten this working?

Did you ever get an answer to your question?

I just installed this dimmer into my Z-Wave network using a VeraPlus.    The dimmer works fine except the dimming rate is not smooth like other dimmers that I have.   The switch just seems to hop to the next dimming level.  It's not very aesthetically pleasing.

If I use the switch itself to dim the lights, then it is very smooth.  When Vera issues a dim level command, the switch just "hops" to the final level.

I am sure there is a ramp speed or some setting that can be adjusted.  I just have not found it.

Thanks!

Its under DEVICE OPTIONS for your Leviton wall dimmer.    Item #8.    I don't think that it makes any difference how you set it though.

8-Load Type (0=Incandescent or 1=LED or 2=CFL or 3=Mark 10)
