I am planning on building my own smart home socket and I want to mainly control LED lamps. But of course I can't make sure that someone is not plugging in let's say a toaster into the socket. (Yes I know that I could warn everyone since it is only for private use but this seems to be not the right approach).
Of course I know that dimming capabilities using phase cutting is not suitable for most LED bulbs but it suffices to just turn them on and off at this point.
Now my problem is that by using a snubber circuit I can protect the Triac from voltage spikes caused by the cut-off of an inductive load but this is also mostly a problem when switching LED Lamps since the capacitor charge is often enough to let the lamp flicker once in a while (depending on the lamp circuit).
Therefore I would like to know if it possible to use a bidirectional TVS Diode instead of a snubber and if it still offers enough protection.
Here are some of my circuit parameters:
