Be aware though, normal incandescent dimmers don’t suit LED, you would also need a special LED dimmer switch along with the lamps  ;)

Compatibility is not easy to determine. I have a LED compatible dimmer that doesn't like some LEDs (it doesn't always trigger and I get a quick blip in the light sometimes every few seconds), yet I have another dimmer that does not state LED compatibility, yet works 100%.

I also buy dimmable LED lamps as standard instead of non-dimmable. Usually the dimmable ones are better made and come in more desirable styles when buying locally (such as filament type even in GLS replacements). Dimmable lamps will of course work on non-dimming circuits.

I've had a hard time finding a good dimmer for LED bulbs.  I got a few Feit Electric LED dimmer switches but on only one or two bulbs they often will flicker or hyper flicker despite there being a auto adjust/calibrate button.  When I have more than two dimable LED bulbs on a switch they don't seem to flicker.

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

Hi, i'm using now some Ikea Tradfri lamps (which can be paired to a remote control), i would change dimmer with a switch and let one remote dimming all lamps.
