Leviton says the Decora is the first slide dimmer specifically designed for dimmable compact fluorescent bulbs. The device detects whether a bulb is an incandescent or a dimmable CFL, determines high- and low-end dimming capabilities, and adjusts the dimming range. It also offers a wide range of control functionality and eliminates the light flickering that commonly occurs when traditional dimmers are used with dimmable CFLs.
