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.
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.

Yes - can be used for one-way on.off switch,
This switch can be used to replace a standard 120V 15A wall switch.
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.

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.
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.
