Incandescent BR30's, unfortunately - which is what the IR switch was designed for. I tried using LED bulbs (six @ 13-watt ea) but they would flash, so no go there
. I called Lutron and asked if they had any LED-compatible IR dimmers coming out but they indicated "no".
What I haven't tried is using a combo of incandescent and LEDs to see if that might work..might just give that a try. Of course since the media room lights are only on for maybe ten total minutes whenever I do use the media room (once/week at most), sneaking in a few LEDs probably won't make a noticeable dent in my electric bill...
I have a Lutron dimmer tied to a 7 watt LED in the ceiling that my wife uses as a reading light.
What I did to make it work correctly: In the attic I attached a 60 watt incandescent to the LED power line. When the LED comes on, so does the 60 watt in the attic. The LED works perfect and when I need an attic light, that also works.
I control it with my 1100
