Questions & Answers


Is this switch compatable with a Phillips HUE Hub?

Asked by Retired November 11, 2018

Well, it should be, but I think you're missing the point of this kind of switch. A smart switch like this one allows you to do a lot of what a Philips Hue system does, but with conventional lights. So if you have Hue bulbs, then you'd just use a conventional switch. I think that using both would just potentially complicate your setup.

Is this compatible with Qlink?

Asked by MEC August 10, 2018

Hello MEC, thank you for your question. Our Z-Wave products will require a Z-Wave certified hub for you to control the switch wirelessly. The Qlink would need to be able to download the required app to control the hub. If you already have a Z-Wave hub, we recommend that you contact the hub manufacturer and support to see if they have a specific compatibility requirements or limitations. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to respond or give us call between the hours of 7:30AM – 4:30PM Central Standard Time, Monday thru Friday at 1-800-654-8483. Thank you.

Asked by Jason October 29, 2017

Sounds like if you are changing over a circuit from conventional switches to z-wave switches you need to change them all. Fortunately it sounds like you only need one control switch, and the others are add-on switches which are much less expensive. The issue I had is that I used a 300 series for my main switch and a 300 series for my add on switch. The problem when you do that is that my hub would understand if the lights were on or off if they were controlled by my main switch or by my hub, but not if the lights were controlled by my add on switches. This issue is corrected in the 500 series version of the main switch (search for item 14292, look for z-wave plus instead of z-wave) so you might want to consider using that switch instead for 3-way applications.

Asked by bbenjamin June 18, 2017

Hi bbenjamin, great question! Typically for an installation as you have described you can ground a length of wire to the box or conduit and connect it to ground. To be on the safe side, it would be recommended to consult your local electrical code to identify the appropriate methods allowed in your area.

Asked by Marv June 9, 2017

Yes, it can be used manually. However, to control it through Google Home (I use Echo), Smart phone or tablet, you need a hub (I use SmartThings) that can control Z-wave. After the hub is installed, you install the SmartThings app on your phone/tablet, add the devise and you're off to the races. I'm not familiar with Google Home, but if it's anything like Echo (Alexa) you'll need to add the SmartThings skill to it and you should then be able to control with voice commands. Once you've done this you should be able to control it with Google Home, your phone/tablet, and manually.

Works as advertised. I have a four-way configuration. I needed one switch and two add-on switches. I used the red wires as the traveler to the add-ons and the black wires as the load to the light from the main switch. I've added a wiring diagram to match my explanation as the picture of the product.

It was installed by an electrician because I felt insecure, but I am certain that I could do it myself next time after watching it being done. Configuring it to work by voice commands with Google Home Assistant took a little patience and head scratching, but it works now to my delight!

This switch does require a neutral (white wire) to work. Works perfectly if it was a stand alone switch as well as connected to my Wink II Hub.

Pretty straight forward installation, no issues. Read the instructions... If you are replacing a conventional switch this is not quite a drop in replacement (pretty close though). The conventional switch does not use the white neutral wire, this switch does. The switch will come with a length of white jumper to help make the connection for the neutral. I don't remember if it came with wire lugs or not, I just used what was already in the wall. l have four of these and all four worked first time. Didn't have any trouble connecting to my z-wave network. It is nice when I am out to be able to turn lights on so I am not coming how to a dark house. I have not tried using this in a three way configuration but that is on my to-do list. I understand that in a three way, you only need one of this type of switch, the extra switch is much less expensive so make sure that if you are doing a three way you only buy one of these and one of the other kind. Oh - note to buyer - this is a toggle switch, not a dimmer switch. That is what I wanted as I was controlling lights that don't need to dim. If you are looking for a dimmer capability I believe that there are other products that satisfy that need.

Z-Wave switch connected to Nexia
I connected 2 of these Z-Wave switchs to a Nexia home controller built into my Trane thermostat and they connected very easily and were easy to program in the Nexia controller. The only problem is Nexia. After two devices, Nexia requires a monthly fee of about $5.00 per month to add more devices. I bought my own controller for the other devices.

The product works well. However you need a neutral wire on your light box for this to work as designed. I have an older home and there is no neutral wire.
