Can an LED bulb be used with a retarded on motion detector? Incandescent bulbs come on slowly with this type of detector to extend the lamp life.
These are externally mounted on an electrical box to control the fixture. I replace a couple every year on this house. It's an ocean front house and there are a lot surges because of weather. The ones I've bought the last couple of years don't snap on instantly but act though turned on with a rheostat. Before I blow a 1000 bucks on LEDs I would like to know if an LED would work with this type of motion detector. They also have a dusk on feature where the incandescent lamps are partly on. How are they affected with that feature. My experience is as a Navy Construction Electrician mostly with power generation and distribution and telephone exchanges. Telecom and data cabling systemsand business telephone equipment is my civilian business
