Yes, I'm using them with dimmers. I just keep the dimmers turned all the way up and the bulbs get the power they need. If you turn the dimmer down then the bulb goes straight off so you do lose the ability to control brightness with the physical dimmer - but with the app you can select any brightness and any colour.

The current Best Answer is wrong!
Though the lamp will work on a dimmed circuit set at full, you are slowly damaging the electronics inside the lamp and shortening its life span. You should not use this product on a dimmed circuit.
