    Lowest 2477D LED brightness is still very bright

    I just installed several 2477D dimmers and the lowest programmed LED brightness through the plugin is not very dim. Previously with other Insteon software I was able to set the brightness of the dimmers and Keypadlincs very low.

          I see a difference but its not very much. Previously with the 2E register I could load a value of 1 and it would barely glow.

            if you are seeing the same on all these new devices, can you check the dim level against another 2477d with a different/older fw version

              I tried a few different firmware devices and they behave the same. I used another Insteon software tool and see that the brightness is set to 11 when the plugin says its at minimum brightness. I remember reading that the LED brightness range is from 11 to 128 but it clearly works below 11.

                would you mind posting a pic of the LED at the lowest and highest brightness. I definitely see a difference on my test units but i haven't tried in a dark room where one might want almost complete darkness. i wonder if you can capture an insteon message from the other sw when setting at lowest brightness setting
