This is going to sound confusing so I apologize. I am very close to hiring an electrician, but I’d love to share here and see if anyone knowsthe heck is going on!
I recently bought Philips Hues light bulbs (color changing 2100 lumen) and installed the bulbs into my sconces. The sconces are double bulb so one on top and one at bottom. 7 of the 8 sockets work with the Philips Hue bulbs, but one has issues. And it’s the last one of the 8 that I screwed in. As soon as I put this this last bulb in, the entire dimmer switch (Lutron) goes to the lowest light and none of the bulbs works. But when I put the original (non-Philips) bulb into that socket, all the other bulbs somehow turn on. It’s so bizarre.
Finally, I tried to switch the non-Philips in the problem socket while the lights are on with the Philips bulb and this indeed worked. All 8 hues are working. But I can’t touch the dimmer switch. If I turn it off nonee of the lights will turn on. I can only exclusively turn the lights on and off via the app.
Sorry for the long and confusing info, but does anyone know what could be going on here?
