I have a 2477D connected to an LED light over our front porch and it works fine. I am not sure the type here but it works fine.

We are moving to a new house (to us) and I plan on taking this dimmer with me. We have 16 recessed can lights I will be replacing with LEDs and plan on using this dimmer for some of those. I purchased the attached lights from Costco and tested in the location where the dimmer is currently installed. It works fine with dimming and everything. Yet when I turn it off, the red light on the switch flashes 10 times after it turns off. I spoke with SmartHome and she says the lights need to be "Leading Edge Technology". I cannot find this information anywhere.

These LEDs are supposed to be a more economical option over the Cree LED Retrofits. They are about $6 each where the Cree equivalent is about $20 each. At the end of the day there is no money saved if it doesnt work right... I want to purchase what will work.

Lights are here:

The only thing I see on the packaging is "may not be compatible with all dimmers". I also see a phone number you can call, and that is exactly what I would do. Ask them if these lights work with "leading edge" dimmers.

Alternatively, buy one and try it out on your porch light (I still would call them).

Otherwise, it is trial-and-error.

A flashing red light on the switch means it's not communicating with something that is linked to.

I missed the note on the red light. If it happens only when the lights are ON>>>OFF, perhaps the Feit bulbs themselves are causing some interference that affects insteon communication.
