Description

Transform any home into a smart home with the GE Z-Wave Smart Lighting Control Add-On Toggle Switch. The GE Z-Wave Smart Lighting Control Toggle Switch replaces your current switch, uses existing wiring and provides your home with ultimate flexibility when combined with a GE In-Wall Smart Switch, Dimmer or Fan Control. Use the dimmer feature to customize the lighting output and create the perfect ambiance for any room. The GE Z-Wave Smart Lighting Control Toggle Switch operates as your home automation systems primary control, requiring three-way or four-way wiring configurations. Three-way wiring configuration turns the light or appliance on/off from two separate locations. Four-way wiring configuration turns the light or appliance on/off from three separate locations. Take control of your home lighting with GE Z-Wave Smart Lighting Controls! Z-Wave is the world’s largest ecosystem of interoperable smart home products. Z-Wave lighting controls provide an easy-to-install and affordable system to control lighting and small appliances in your home. Add GE Z-Wave lighting controls to a Z-Wave certified gateway to access and control your home from anywhere in the world using your smartphone, tablet or computer as a home automation command center. Never worry if you accidentally left the lights on because you can turn them off remotely or program your lights to go on/off at specific times. Create customized lighting scenes for any occasion such as a “go to sleep” scene or a “movie night” scene. Give the illusion that someone is home by programming the lights to turn on/off while you are away—perfect for deterring crime and adding additional security!

FAQ

Does this work with Amazon echo / Google Home?

All of the GE Z-Wave smart lighting controls must be connected to a supported hub in order to interact with the Amazon Alexa / Google Home services. Note: It will be necessary to review supported hubs with each service, as both may have different supported hubs. At the time of this publication, SmartThings, Wink, Lowes Iris, and Nexia are currently supported by the Alexa service and SmartThings is currently supported by the Google Home service as compatible hubs.

My Wiring only has two wires. Will this work for me?

The Add-On Switch requires three wires: a neutral wire (typically bundled together with other neutrals in the back of the box), a traveler wire (coming immediately from the Primary Z-Wave, ZigBee, or Bluetooth Switch), and a ground wire. If you need further assistance regarding all three connections, you are unfamiliar or need further assistance, it will be necessary to contact a licensed electrician for installation assistance.

Can this be used by itself with a SmartThings, Wink, Iris, or other Home Automation Hub?

<p>The Add-on switch (12723) is not a standalone switch, and cannot work by itself in any situation. It is designed to physically connect to a GE In-Wall Smart Lighting Control Switch, Dimmer, or Fan Control in a multi-switch configuration through the traveler wire e.g. 3 or 4-Way configuration. If you are installing a single pole switch you will need a Z-Wave, ZigBee, or Bluetooth In-Wall primary switch. For more information about the Add-On Switch, please visit www.ezaddonswitch.com.</p>
