A Holiday emergency! 🎄 I purchased LED flame-bulbs:fire: for my outside light-fixtures. But instead of "flickering"... ⚡ They just pulse on/off. 💡 I'm thinking the problem may be caused by the X-10 :link: switches that control the bulbs?

Help? 🆘

use the x-10 to control a relay
let the relay power the lamps instead of the x-10.
Are you saying... Instead of activating the flame-bulb from the wall-switch, send an X-10 signal to the wall-switch to activate the bulb?
 
the X-10 would likely use a semi conductor to switch on your light,
(this is the problem) it is not compatible with the electronics in the flame bulb.
so use the x -10 to control a relay and use this relay to switch on the flame bulb.
