Review of 36718WH
My wife and I thought that these looked cool, but they don't function all that well. I was thinking that as you slide your finger up or down the plate the lights would dim up or down, accordingly. However, it turns out that you just touch and hold your finger on there to dim. The first time you do that they begin to dim up and then reverse once they bulbs are at max brightness. If you take your finger off and touch/hold again, then they dim down. This is very cumbersome. Sometimes we accidentally turned them off when we wanted to just dim them down. And there is no way to turn the bulbs on at a lower level than they were when they were last turned off. We found that we like dimmers with a manual slider and separate switch much better.
All of this would have been fine if SmartHome would have honored their 30 day no hassle return policy! When I called to return these switches after we discovered that we didn't like them, SmartHome wouldn't take them. Evidently these items have a no-returns policy, despite the big banner on the item page that says No hassle 30 day returns. There is fine print down below that says these items are different. As you might expect, I saw the huge banner and not the fine print. I probably wouldn't have tried out a new and different dimmer if I didn't think that I would have the chance to return them if I didn't like them.
