Love this dimmer switch! I bought two with mates for 3-way application. Using your smartphone or alexa you can turn on individual lights or groups of lights that you can mix and match as you like. If you have your whole house on these switches, you can tell them to turn off at the same time. If you have dimmable bulbs, you can tell that particular switch to go to a certain dimness.
I already love these over Lutron dimmers because when you tell it that you have LED's on the app, the range of brightness is greatly increased. They dim much better than a slide-toggle switch from Lutron.
Unfortunately for me, I didn't really believe or trust the instructions and thought I was just replacing an in-kind 3-way switch and thought the wiring would basically be the same. Boy was I wrong! It took me about 4 hours to figure out what I was doing wrong. This is not an ordinary 3-way switch and is not even closely wired the same! Basically for 3-way operation, both sides of the circuit need a neutral, hot and traveler, but this not the case with a typical 3-way setup. Usually only one side has a neutral. I was freaking out about this because I missed my return window. BUT since this is not a normal 3-way switch, it's easy to get the wires you need.
In my boxes I had power coming in, light circuit going out and 3-wire going to the other switch. The common (white) from the other switch was jumpered to the hot (load) of the light for power feed and the neutral was ganged together. So what I did was use the 3 wires going to the other switch to make my connections. Instead of a common and two travelers, you now make one wire hot, one wire neutral, and the last wire the traveler. I cut the common to load connection and used the white wire (previously joined with the load wire to the lights) as the neutral run. The load line to the lights was connected as the load. The neutral from the lights was already ganged as neutral in the box. Once I realized this is what it took to get a neutral to the opposite switch, it worked flawlessly.
So, throw everything you have learned about 3-way switches out of the window and start from a blank slate. Figure out where your wires are going. Disconnect everything if necessary and get some long jumpers to test continuity of disconnected ends of each conductor so you know what is connected and what is not. Then realize you need to wire hot, neutral and traveler to both switches in a bus configuration (i.e. always on), not a switched configuration.
Most of the extra settings including bulb type are set through the Leviton app. It's integration with Alexa is funny. You can say commands like "turn on abc lights," "Dim abc lights to 50%," or "turn off abc lights." However if you group lights together to make a "scene" the "turn off" capability is not there. For scene's you always turn "on" a scene. So you can say "turn on xyz lights", but you can't say "turn OFF xyz lights." However, you can make a scene called "lights off" or "goodbye" and say "turn on xyz lights off" or "turn on goodbye" if you program the scene to turn off your lights. So if you're controlling independent lights, which is always an option even if you are using scenes, the "turn off" capability is there, but not when you group lights together and want to control them at the same time. You basically pre-program the scenes to the on/off and brightness setting to your liking, so you're always turning those "on"
Unfortunately these nuances are not well documented anywhere, so I hope they help someone.
EDIT: I discovered how to turn off lights with Alexa. Don't create a scene in Leviton, but discover the individual devices in Alexa and group them into rooms. Then you can tell Alexa to turn a room or "all lights" on or off. Only devices that are grouped into rooms will respond to the "turn off" command. It also works individually. It just doesn't work if you program a scene in Leviton.
If you're not the least bit comfortable tackling a moderately challenging electrical puzzle, please get an expert (engineer or diy handyman) for this. I've heard on message boards that many electricians won't even be able to install it. I did miswire it, but didn't blow anything up, thankfully. I think they build it to not blow up based on a miswire. But if you don't seek professional help, you may never get it working. My second switch pair took 1 hour to install, but only because I had to change 7 other switches to decora style and re-wire accordingly, but I did it right the first time that time and also because I drew out the circuit ahead of time. Also, Leviton has excellent customer support and very sharp people to help you install. They can pretty much figure out your wiring based on what you tell them and tell you how to wire it.
I'm quite pleased with this upgrade. I came from the X10 world and it's nice to have the Alexa and smartphone integration without having to pay for additional hardware.
1 works perfect, with 2 FEIT LED lights connected to it
2nd one flickers until fully on, and flickers when dimming. 6 FEIT LES lights connected to it
3rd one is wired with the matching remote (3 ways switch) and only turns the lights off/on. does not dim. 4 FEIT LED lights connected to it.
ALL LED lights are identical.
Called Leviton and they want to know the model of the lights to check for compatibility. ...even though they are all the same and work fine on one of the switches, so I would think that it shouldn't matter... currently waiting for the information form my electrician.
Save the money and buy a regular dimmer from Lowe's.

So why not provide a compatibility chart so a person will know to look and make sure it is compatible before purchasing it and having it installed!!
Now on to the replacement unit....
Freak'n awesome. I may sound like a kid in a toy store, but it seriously brought a smile to my face. Using your voice to turn on and off the lights at home AND while away. How cool is that! Took a few minutes to get it synced to the home wifi network. Word of advice for those trying to set it up with Google Home, use the Google Assistant to hook it up.
UPDATE: Went to Home Depot and bought another one. This dimmer worked, the buttons could turn it off and dim it...BUT THE WIFI WOULDN'T WORK!!! It would stop on the last procedure with a message "This device could not be enrolled" Talked to customer service, reset it, tried a bunch of different things, and they concluded it was also defective. Leviton's QC sucks!
UPDATE 2: Returned the Home Depot one, replaced it, and the third one installed without a hitch. Still, two defectives out of three is not a great track record. The switch itself works well.
