No Neutral Switches/Dimmers
The place to shop if your home doesn't have neutral wiring in your switch-boxes. Hardwired, in-wall smart switches and dimmers that do not require a neutral wire (aka 2-wire switches or dimmers), please verify that the type of bulb you wish to use with these are compatible, or at least will perform to your satisfaction.

Most switches and dimmers that do not need neutral wiring, are rated as "Incandescent only" and will only perform well using incandescent or halogen bulbs. Some 2-wire dimmers will still work, providing a good quality dimmable LED or CFL bulb is used, but only if a minimum load wattage requirement has been met. Still other 2-wire switches and dimmers work well with LED's/CFL's but require that a "minimum load capacitor" or MLC be installed inline for the circuit, usually within the light fixture itself, where it is wired into your homes neutral wires where they are located.
