Answer: 
I suggest taking a look at the GE Z-Wave 1,000-Watt Smart Dimmer Switch for Incandescent Bulbs, In-Wall, 12725 by GE. This model doesn't require a neutral, and I've installed one, because a lot of my lights don't have readily accessible neutrals in the electrical box. Unfortunately it only works with incandescent bulbs, but that's the negative in my opinion - otherwise it works great!

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.

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 Read More

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.

Answer: 
Yes, you'll have to swap the other two switches out for the add ons. Lame huh? They work by signal so if you would use the regular switches with real voltage you'll blow the circuitry in the master switch. The master switch will have to go at one of the end switch locations and you'll have to get power or the light wire fed through from other location via wire nutting the power or light wire to the other Read More
Yes, you'll have to swap the other two switches out for the add ons. Lame huh? They work by signal so if you would use the regular switches with real voltage you'll blow the circuitry in the master switch. The master switch will have to go at one of the end switch locations and you'll have to get power or the light wire fed through from other location via wire nutting the power or light wire to the other traveler wire you didn't use and continuing that to the master switch. Remember to hook up the neutral (white wire) and a traveler wire to the "traveler" terminal. Be sure the traveler wire is the same color at each switch. This will help in the confusion. Also on the middle switch... Where the expensive four-way switch was... use the same colors there and put them in the two holes of the traveler terminal. Make sure you cap off the unused wires at each location as well. Confused? You should be.
Good luck,

Answer: 
You will need to buy add-on switches for each location. So if you have wrap around porch with many switch locations every one will have to have one or you will let the magic smoke out and main switch will be damaged. The traveler takes a signal not regular voltage.

These switches are not Apple HomeKit compatible. I think if you integrate them with a Nest then they will. I believe Nest is working on being HomeKit.

PLEASE NOTE: If you press and hold “Down”, it will Dim down to the lowest setting, but will not turn “Off.” It will be necessary to Brighten up to the desired level, because when you press and release “Up”, it will simply go to that lowest level because it was the last known brightness setting.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Two Dead switches. I have bought three of these switches. Two are still working. One died, so I called GE and they sent me a replacement. The moment I installed it, it died, somehow shorted by a possible bad transformer. Now I am down two switches. I just received a new transformer, hopefully this will fix it. But at $40 not sure if I want to try again with these GE switches. Would have been nice if they had a fuse inside, at this price. I have all three dimmers (well, now only two) on my Vera and they work well. I like how they come on. From 0% to 100% using the dimmer function. Powering off is from 100% to 0%. Looks really cool. September 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Love love love this product... Just wish it was more affordable so I can get more... July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Loooove it! Great for those Netflix and Chill moments and showing off to your friends and family. Lol! June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cool item Love this product. Worked as advertised . Was able to dim my led lights bought from Costco And integrate with my smarthings and Alexa without a hitch. Highly recommend. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine and with Vera Received a Vera Zwave controller and some smart switches for my birthday. Decided to add a dimmer since my old one was not LED ready. Installation is straight forward with a few subtle wiring changes. The carrier wire between the smart device and add on switches must not be wired to 120VAC. Unlike conventional 3 way switches the smart switch controls both power input and load at its location. The add on switches merely communicate via pulses on the "traveller" to dim and or turn light(s) on or off. Operation is simple. Press and hold to adjust light level or tap and release appropriate toggle to turn light on or off. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than Leviton Replaced 2 Leviton dimmers with these and instantly am much happier. A) they both work (one of the Levitons wouldn't pair with my Wink hub no matter what); B) they dim all the way down (the Leviton seemed to dim to 30% brightness, then just off; I am using LED bulbs); C) the neutral position of the switch is more visually appealing; D) dimming on the switch is more tactile and pleasant than the small area on the Leviton. Works Great!!! March 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as expected. Installation was straight forward. Worked manually without problem, adjusting for both dim and bright. Linked with Z-Wave USB stick without issue and had full control. February 11, 2016
