GE smart dimmer uses your existing wiring and saves space with its screw terminal installation. It is easy to replace your existing switch with the the Z-Wave unit once you carefully read the manual. So please follow all necessary steps provided in the instructions to avoid unnecessary frustration.

Here are some helpful installation tips:

  • Make sure the electric wiring in your home includes the neutral wire - you will not be able to connect the smart switch properly without a neutral wire.

  • Unlike your regular electric switches, Z-Wave smart switches require particular wires to be connected exactly as indicated - line and load wires cannot be swapped as it often happens to the most experienced electricians.

  • When used by itself for 2-way control, please make sure that the screw terminal for the traveler wire is insulated (Do Not Remove the tape over are not using the traveler connection).

  • You will need an auxiliary (add-on) switch for Z-Wave Three-way or Four-way installations.

How do I choose the right installation type?

Two-way wiring (single pole) configuration turns the light or appliance on/off from one location. 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 different locations.
