    Hi, I moved into a house with a C-Bus 2 system. The downlights are halogens. I'm trying to find brands of compatible LEDs which are dimmable with the C-Bus 2 system. I phoned Clipsal/Schneider tech support and they won't recommend a suitable dimmable LED globe. I suspect they won't because they don't want to be held accountable for the recommendation should it fail. The tech person said I'd have to buy dimmable LED globes and try them out to see if they work. I know this has been a topic in the past but I'm wondering if there have been technical developments with LED dimmable globes to make them C-Bus compatible? I've been told the NSW government will, in the future, request that halogen globes not be sold.

    My advice is to engage someone who has experience with CBus to come to your home, do the job and provide some sort of warranty.
    There is so many possible combinations of CBus dimmer types, light fittings per dimmer channel and LED lighting products on the market without specifications it is not a simple matter of naming a product.
