Product Overview

Transform any home into a smart home with the GE Smart Lighting Control Add-On Paddle Switch. The GE Smart Lighting Control Paddle Switch replaces your current switch, uses existing wiring and provides your home with ultimate flexibility when combined with a GE Z-Wave, ZigBee or Bluetooth In-Wall Smart Switch, Dimmer or Fan Control. The GE Smart Lighting Control Paddle Switch operates as your home automation system primary control, requiring three-way or four-way wiring configurations. Three-way wiring configuration turns the light or appliance on or off from two separate locations. Four-way wiring configuration turns the light or appliance on or off from three separate locations. With an interchangeable paddle design, the paddle switch matches most standard wall plates and home decor, and includes white and light almond paddles that will match most standard wall plates (wall plate not included). This product is ALEXA COMPATIBLE, however, it REQUIRES AN ALEXA SUPPORTED HUB for voice control with Echo Products (Alexa device and hub sold separately). **This product CANNOT connect directly with ECHO PLUS (Only ZigBee products can connect directly to Echo Plus).**
  • Provides ultimate flexibility with your GE in-wall smart switch, dimmer or fan control
  • Requires a GE home automation switch, not a standalone switch
  • Includes white and light almond paddles that will match most standard wall plates (wall Plate not included)
  • Screw terminal installation provides improved space efficiency when replacing existing switches compared to flying leads (neutral connection required for installation)
  • Compatible with GE in-wall z-wave, Bluetooth, and ZigBee switches, dimmers and fan controls. Note : Refer to the PDF attached below in Technical Specification for User Manual.

Yes it should. I have a samsung smartthings, alexa and ring all integrated. I use the ring motion detection to turn the lights on in automation routines. I can reference this switch from any platform now.

This is an add-on switch this would only work as the 2nd/3rd switch for lights that have more than one switch. You would need the slightly more expensive switch that is either on/off, or dimmer.

will this work stand alone with Samsung smartthings as my bridge ?

Asked by Darrenr16755 December 27, 2017

No, this is an "Add-On" switch. You need the appropriate switch (the $40 model) the works with the Samsung smartthings hub. GE/Jasco makes a z-wave, zigbee, and wifi model for all the different communications hubs on the market. That model will connect to your hub, not this one. This one is only for 3 and 4 way lamp circuits where one of the switches is the connected one, and the others are replaced by this model, hence the "Add-on" descriptor in the name.

I already tried that. Doesn’t work as the echo uses a Zigbee hub. Not the best. Samsung Smartthings is a much better choice and works well with Echo products.

Travelers wires are usually red. For any smart switches. You need 4 wires. Line, load, neutral, ground. For 3 way switches you need 5 wires. Line, load, neutral, traveler and ground.

Can these switches be placed right next to the electrical circuit breaker box without any problems?

Not sure I understand the question. Is there an existing switch there already? Are you concerned about wi fi?

Will this device work with the Securifi Almond Smart Home Hub (Almond+ or Almond 3)?

It will, but not without the GE Plus Z-Wave switch. This switch is designed to work in a multi switch circuit. See GE's video: https://binged.it/2Bzwcl6

Call google. Going to the source usually reveals the best answer. Also try YouTube vids. Mine are all Echo controlled and she can be moody.

will this work with a Honeywell VAM controller?

Yes it can, but you will also need the GE Z-Wave plus master switch to work with this add-on switch. Add-on switches are basically dumb switches that work with the main switch. See GE video: https://binged.it/2Bzwcl6

Bought and installed this product (along with an add-on switch to make a 3-way switching circuit) to automatically turn on lights at dark when we left the house. Replaced old switches easily, directions were clear and programming using a SmartThings hub was simple.

Easy installation and set-up with longevity
I've installed a bunch of these across our house as a replacement for 3-way switches, and they work incredibly well. It requires you to have a hub (I've used SmartThings) for the initial switch. But this has worked great as the power used is low compared with units that don't need a hub, and all the units have lasted over a year with no issue. In comparison, our Leviton with add-on runs warm/hot and needs to be re-added to our network every month or two. The thing that is mentioned is the need for a neutral line. They definitely need this is a neutral line. I tried using the ground, but it didn't work. In one installation, I needed to run a separate neutral when the box didn't have one. Once that was done though it's easy. All you need on this box is the red traveler, ground, and the neutral line. The load and other traveler (if they're in the box) get connected to each-other to power the circuit. I couldn't be happier with this unit.

Not what I was expecting. Maybe it is the way that the documentation was written but what I was hoping was that this add-on switch could be linked with another GE switch without having to have common wiring. We have a room currently where lights can be controlled by one side but not from the other. Since the documentation says that it will work with any of the supported GE Branded Smart Controls I was hoping this switch could be linked to the switch and allow for control without having to use a phone or assistant to enable the switch without walking across the room.

Works great as long as both boxes controlling the device has a neutral wire. I was surprised (as I have a newer home) that one of my my 3 way switch boxes was missing a neutral wire in the second box (all my other boxes have them). Lazy electrician? Don’t know. For now I put back the original secondary 3 way switch (3 wires plus ground) the add on needs five wires (line, load, nuertal, traveler and ground).
