quick question. we installed 2 lights in a new house and during the finish they have worked however now they are tripping the arc fault. we took them down and installed 1 and it worked then we installed the other and it tripped. it only works if 1 light is up and it doesnt matter which light. they are on an arc fault in a lutron dimming panel. any ideas? they don't trip a regular breaker thought.

Sue the manufacturer for damages. That is going to end up being the only way to get them to adjust their units to work with all the common electronics available to the public.

I ran into this years ago when they first came out, before the great State of Indiana stopped requiring them. 6 smoke detectors on the circuit would not trip it, but add #7 and bam. A ground was touching a neutral in a recep.
