Installation is a little tricky if you've never messed with swapping out a switch before. The instructions aren't super clear, but if you study them long enough, it eventually makes enough sense. Here's what I had to do:
1.) Turn the light off. Kill the breaker to the switch.
2.) Unscrew the plate and existing switch. Popping the existing wires out of the back of the old switch was the hardest part here.
3.) Pull out the white wires (neutrals) from the back of the box
4.) Unscrew the wire nut off the neutrals. Add in the short neutral wire included in the GE switch box and screw the wire nut back on.
5.) Connect the 4 or 5 wires that are now open to the new switch: line, load, neutral, traveler (only if 3-way config), ground.
6.) Turn breaker on. Check to see you've got a blue LED.
7.) Put your hub in discovery mode. Push the switch once to make it pair.
8.) Turn breaker back off. Screw everything back in and put on a fitting plate. Done!
A couple other notes for people who are totally new to this:
Line = wire coming from the breaker
Load = wire going to the light fixture
Traveler = wire that runs between two (or more) switches that allows you to flip the same light on/off from multiple places. Normally red.
It can be hard to tell which is which between line/load as both of these are usually black. From my experience, the line wire was almost always connected via wire nut in the back of the box while the load wire was just free by itself. The load wire was also generally closer to the traveler wire.Read more ›
GE has recently released a new model for their Z-Wave dimmer switch, model 12724. The product page you're viewing now showcases this switch. The product I reviewed was the model 45612, which did not offer a neutral wire connection and hence, was ineffective at dimming CFL/LED fixtures. Amazon did not spin off a new page for this model, despite it being, more or less, entirely different. In short, the 12724 offers a neutral wire, which allows more effective dimming of LED/CFL fixtures. Please keep this in mind as you read this review. I'm leaving the review up so others that are thinking about purchasing the 45612 have some insight before buying. Several storefronts don't make the differences between the two models terribly clear, and in some cases, they just call it a GE Z-Wave dimmer switch and it's anyone's guess as to which one you're getting.
Now, my original review:
I've become somewhat of a subject matter expert on z-wave switches. I recently finished a complete z-wave project on my home that finished out with over 70 devices, lights, locks, sensors, outlets, etc. If it speaks z-wave, chances are I have it. I'm running all of it through a Vera 3. Being a novice, a started out with 20 GE/Jasco dimmer switches (GE and Jasco switches are one in the same - Jasco is licensed to sell and brand certain GE products like this one). I had read that as long as the circuit had an aggregate total of 40 watts, whether they be LEDs or CFLs, then the switch would dim properly. This is simply not true.
My first test was a circuit of 12 can lights running incandescents. Worked fantastic in every aspect. I changed out the lamps for LEDs, 17 watts each. The lights not only would not dim, they wouldn't turn on. They flickered and died.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
