Question about Lutron Electrical Supplies
Hi Ive got a Lutron Grafik Eye 3000 controlling 6 zones in my living room/kitchen. It operates double downlighters to swicth on, switch off and dim in the programmed scenes. When the lights go on or are dimmed all is fine. However when the lights go off either to change scene or to switch everything off altogether the lights that have gone off 'click' audibly in sequence. If a lot of lights are being switched off this can go on for 10 minutes or so. Can anyone explain why or if this is normal? Many thanks.
I need more information. Are the fixtures pot lights? What kind of bulbs are you using? Floodlights, spotlights, incondescent (normal tungsten filaments) or fluorescent, compact fluorescent, led etc. Since most dimmers say in their instructions that they are designed for incondescent lighting only the bulb you use can either blow up the switch or cause troubles like you are specifying. Also inside pot lights are thermal cutoffs that trip and reset when the light is cool again. Can you remove the switchplates and see where it says incondescent only embossed into the aluminum heatsink? If it says something else, what does it say?

SOURCE: Light switching
At any hdwe store or home center there are dbl switches available in a standard toggle or rocker (as they are sometimes called) there will be two feed screws with a jumper so power only needs to be attached at one terminal, and two screws where power exits, one for each set of lights. There should be a wiring schematic included if a boxed switch is purchased. The cover plate that is used is also used for a dbl wall outlet.

You can try to reset the grafik eye by turning off the circuit breaker to it for about 15 seconds and then turning it back on. Sometimes, they will get a surge and it freaks out the computer inside it a little bit. If that doesn't solve it, you may have a loose connection on the back of the grafik eye unit or one of the bedside keypads. There should be a 4 conductor wire (black, red, white, green) from the master unit to the bedside unit and then from bedside unit to bedside unit. The black wire is the common (ground), the red wire is the positive, and white and green are transmit and receive. It sounds like your transmit and receive loops are not complete (white and green). This would allow the led's on the front of the keypad to light up but not communicate to the grafik eye. Be sure to turn off the circuit breaker to the grafik eye before removing either the keypads and the grafik eye from the wall.
