Will the 12724 z-wave smart dimmer work with any GU10 LED 6W (50W replacements) dimmable bulbs? ...

Will the 12724 z-wave smart dimmer work with any GU10 LED 6W (50W replacements) dimmable bulbs? I have a light fixture that takes 5 of these GU10 bulbs for a total draw of ~30W. Perhaps this is not an issue - but I've read that many z-wave smart dimmers have issues when the draw on the circuit is < 40W. As a result I'm unclear as to how many of these types of switches are actually being used with LEDs as typically they are much less wattage than older bulbs, halogen/CFL etc. It would seem difficult to get anywhere near 40W on a typical light fixture using LEDs. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Existing 4 way installation

In an existing 4 way switch would I need to swap the other 2 switches to 12723 add ons or can I use the existing switches? Thanks.
Asked by: SS
Hi SS, Great question and Thank you for your interest in our Z-Wave In-Wall Dimmer Switch! The GE Z-Wave devices are designed so that the “Primary Switch” (12724 for instance) controls the load directly. The “Secondary switches” (add-on switch 12723) then must physically connect to the device through the traveler wire. In other words, in a 3-way or 4-way application with our Z-Wave switches you MUST use the 12723 add-on switch. Lastly, because the Z-Wave switch and Add-On Switch do not wire like typical 3 or 4-way switches, the Z-Wave switch will not operate at all using your existing switches. Check out these installation videos at: http://www.ezzwave.com/installation-videos/. If you have any further questions, we encourage you to respond or contact our Customer Support through phone or email. Thank you, ByJasco Tech Support (Manufacturer)

Z-Wave 600 Watt CFL-LED Indoor In-Wall Dimmer Switch, Almond/White Paddles is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home automation. The paddle on this dimmer switch rests in the middle. To manually oper... Great for home automation. The paddle on this dimmer switch rests in the middle. To manually operated, the user presses the top or the bottom of the paddle to momentarily rock the paddle up or down. The dimmer turns on when momentarily pressing the top and off when momentarily pressing the bottom. To brighten the light press and hold the top until the desired brightness is achieved. Similarly to dim the lights press and hold the bottom of the paddle until the desired light level is reached. Once released the paddle will return to the center position. When monetarily pressed to turn on the dimmer will return to the brightness level it was at when it was last turn off and not to 100% There is a small blue light on the bottom of the switch that turn on when the switch is off so you can see where the switch is if the room is dark. This switch comes with a white paddle installed. A light almond paddle is included in the box and may be exchanged with the white paddle. For remote control this switch requires a Hub (such as the Wink hub also available at Home Depot). Once connected to a Hub this switch an be controlled by an app on your phone or tablet. With the app you can control your lights from anywhere in the world. Also, this switch can be schedule to turn on and off at various times of the day or week using the app. Works well with Wink Hub and Wink Hub 2. Once the switch is installed just add the switch to the Wink hub by using the Wink app on your phone or tablet. Using the app, select add product and the scan the bar code on box the switch came in . Then follow the instructions shown by the app. For less than $50 more use an "Amazon Echo Dot" along with the Wink hub to turn your lights on and off using your voice! " Alexa turn on the dining room light 50%. " Imagine that controlling your light by voice commands. Please note that this product requires a neutral wire. Typical dimmer switches have two terminals with wires attached. This switch requires a third (Neutral ) wire to be connected. Older homes may not have a neutral wire in the switch box in which case you can not use this device. When turning the lights on and off manually the light gradually transitions on or gradually fades to off. When turned on with the Wink Hub the light goes abruptly to the brightness level specified. When trued off with the the light transitions to off. Personally I like the gradual transitions rather that the abrupt changes.

They work as advertised when connected to LED lights. I paired them with a Wink Hub 2 without any issues. Holding the top or bottom of the rocker causes the lights to brighten or dim. A single click to the top of the rocker turns the lights on and a single click to the bottom of the rocker turns them off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I've had this for about a month now connected to a two way switch using also the GE auxiliary switch paired with this. I have it connected to a Samsung smartthings hub with no issues. I use Alexa to control and dim the lights. Haven't had any issues yet. Had a slight problem when I first installed them. The settings were set to turn on a little blue LED on the switch when the switch was off so you can locate the switch in the dark. But the LED light was coming on when the switch was on. After playing around with the setting, it started working.

Excellent product suitable for integration into any home automation system that uses Z-Wave. I have an Amazon Echo and Samsung Smartthings Hub. The GE dimmer switches paired quickly with the hub, and, of course, Amazon Echo Alexa turns the lights on and off when instructed to do so. The instructions included with the product are clear and easy to follow. I installed the units myself, and the installation of each unit was fairly simple, as long as you have some basic knowledge of electrical wiring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Z-Wave Dimmer Switch Bought two to install in our theater room to control with Harmony Elite remote control. Easy to install (and I am no electrician) and works like a charm. Now I can control lighting from off to bright and anywhere in between with my TV\home theater remote. Very satisfied with the product.

Apparently you have to be within 10 ft of the hub to pair it. So far no luck. It is a little bit ridiculous because how many switches are within that radius?? Currently they are just expensive switches.

The whole product line is just a bit pricey. that's what keeps it from being 5 stars. Still home Depot has the lowest price around for this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Great product, but when being used with a smart home hub like home assistant, u have to change the pull time because the light takes so long to turn off. That home assitant thinks it did not turn off.
