I have been using these for over a year now with no problems. A few notes on these...

As others have noted there is a blue LED that by default is on when the switch is off. Some find that annoying though it helps locate the switch in the dark. It's programmable and you can flip it if you want to where the LED is off when the switch is off and on when the switch is on. That is helpful as an indicator when the switch is controlling something that you can't see from the switch location (outside lights, etc.) But it is programmable but requires a master controller that can program zwave devices to be able to set this.

If the switch is installed upside down for whatever reason, the operation can similarly be reversed through programming a parameter.

As to lifetime that some have mentioned, there can be various reasons. Certainly there can be lemons that no matter what you do will fail and need to be replaced. But possibly/probably a bigger reason for early failures are surges and spikes on the power line. These can be due to your neighbor's air conditioner switching on and off, lightning, wind shorting lines together, etc. These same surges and spikes (which can be hundreds of volts, btw) also kill other electronics like LCD TVs, computers, GFCI breakers, etc.

If people are going to invest in home automation, please consider getting a whole house surge suppressor. For things that plug in, you can use the outlet strip style suppressors, but things like these zwave devices are permanently wired in. You need a whole house surge suppressor to protect this stuff. I have one and while I can't prove the negative, have yet to have a GFCI failure or zwave failure.

But these switches work great although they are a bit expensive for what is inside them.

I purchased 5 of these 2 way on/off switches to remotely control the lights in my house. Replacing the existing switches with these Z-Wave ones were relatively straightforward. My old switches only used 2 wires (Line [Hot] and Load) while these switches use 4 wires (Line, Load, Neutral, and Ground). Like most electricians would suggest, I also recommend using the screw terminals instead of the push terminals. On one switch I was lazy and used the push terminals and the wire kept popping out (even if I tightened the screw which made no difference). Note that the Z-Wave switch is pretty bulky and will take up about 75-80% of the work box space so if you're installing into a work box that has multiple switches, make sure there's enough room (depth-wise).

Adding the switches to my Mi Casa Verde Vera 2 was painless and these switches are detected right away (Just press up and then down to sync). The blue LED is nice and not overpowering. You can easily find the switch in the dark. The relay in the switch makes a clicking noise when you turn it on/off, but it's pretty quiet, no complaints here. Switches work great and I would give them a 5 star rating if the depth was half the size.

I have nothing but good things to say about this switch. Mine's been turning our porch light on and off automatically (controlled by an alarm.com security system) for many months without a hitch. Beyond doing what it's supposed to, and looking like a normal switch, there's not terribly much more than can be said. Most people won't use any of the advanced features of the switch (like the ability to turn off the blue light) because to do so requires an advanced controller (which I don't have, either). UPDATE: it's now been turning on and off our porch light every day without fail for about a year and a half now.

Perhaps the most useful thing I can say in this review is to warn people that installing it is easy, but not trivial. It's not just another switch, which you can wire by just copying the wiring from the switch it replaces. With this Z-wave switch, you need to wire both the load and hot wires in the correct places, but you'll also need to wire in a neutral wire. So, one problem is that if you have an older house, or a poorly wired one, you may not have a neutral in the box at all. You won't be able to use this switch safely, if this is the case. (Please don't try using ground as a neutral! It may work, but its NOT safe.) If you don't have a neutral, or don't know how to figure that out, you can always get the GE 45612 Z-Wave Wireless Lighting Control In-Wall Dimmer. The dimmer DOES install just like a regular switch, and can always replace any existing switch.

If you aren't confident you can figure out which are the hot, neutral and load wires in your box, you should hire an electrician to install this or just get the dimmer I mention above.

Quick Review:

If you're converting your light switches to z-wave controlled ones but want to use fluorescent bulbs, this is the answer. Installation is easy as long as you know a little bit about electrical wiring, otherwise it might be a little more difficult for you. Get them for around $40 here on Amazon

Full Review:

I decided to start switching over my home to use z-wave for home automation and needed to find light switches to use around my house. After reading some of the reviews for the dimmer version of this switch, I opted to go for these to convert my home. I already have fluorescent light bulbs for almost every light fixture and being able to dim most of the lights was not a priority for me.

This product the same as the one included in the 3-way package GE 45614 Z-Wave 3-Way On/Off Switch Kit which includes an auxiliary switch (GE 45610) so that you can have it control a 3-way (or 4-way, you'll need another aux switch) circuit. I used these instead of the GE 45606 Z-Wave Technology 2-Way Dimmer Switch due to the fact almost every single light in my house is florescent.

To wire in the switch, you need to have ground, neutral, line (hot), and load (to the light) in the electrical box. Now you should be able to check your wiring and verify you have all the needed wires before tearing everything apart. For me, all the neutral wires were bound together, capped off, and shoved to the back of the box.

I have installed a total of 5 of these now. The first one took about 20min.
