The Z-Wave Plus 600W dimmer uses the latest generation of Leviton's dimming technology for lighting control products. Screwless wallplate shown, but not included. Optional screwless wallplates available in several colors and sizes. It supports dimmable LED and CFL technologies up to 300 watts along with support for legacy incandescent lighting loads up to 600 watts. The DZ6HD is Z-Wave Plus certified, ensuring the latest technology, increased communication range, network wide inclusion, and over the air updates. The highly advanced design features two-way feedback, is scene capable, and is supported by security systems, hubs, and gateways that are Z-Wave enabled, providing remote access and scheduling abilities. Featuring an all new appearance, the true rocker allows users to push the top of the paddle to turn on or the bottom to turn off. Additionally, the dim/brighten bar is conveniently located along the right hand side of the paddle, ensuring ease of use with the state-of-the-art device. Vanishing leds on the left hand side of the paddle show current and target light level with real-time feedback. For the most professional and cleanest installation, pair the device with an optional Leviton screwless wall plate. DZ6HD is for use with Z-Wave enabled hubs like the Samsung SmartThings, to help facilitate a comprehensive smart home. If you do not wish to use a hub but still desire voice controls and select third-party device integration, Leviton recommends the DW6HD. If using in a HomeKit installation, utilize the DH6HD.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
BTW they know there are wrong or incomplete instructions sent with item.
I will list the steps so if you have any problems may be this can help you.
1- Plug the item in a working outlet
2- Press the button for 15 seconds to be sure unit is factory reset. After the light links red let go.
3- Press button for 7 seconds or until you see amber light blinking.
4- While amber light is blinking press button once more. If all went fine you should see a blinking green light.
5- Device is ready to be discover. Open your app and add the device.
* Z-Wave Plus (lower power and better range than Z-Wave)
* Instant reporting to the hub (as opposed to delayed polling)
We could find only two smart switches that met both criteria: Leviton DZ15S-1BZ and the HomeSeer HS-WS100+
Instantaneous power-on when manually switched.
Slightly less pressure required to flip switch.
Draws 1.1 Watts with no load.
Up to four wires per terminal.
Green "nightlight" LED (default on when load is off).
Can program the LED setting at the switch without a hub (on when load off, on when load on, off always).
For 3-way, use either DD0SR-10 Coordinating Remote (no LED, 9 max.) or DD0SR-DL Matching Remote (with LED, 4 max.).
.5 second delay to power-on when manually switched.
Slightly more pressure required to flip switch.
Draws .6 Watts with no load.
Up to two wires per terminal.
White "nightlight" LED (on when load is off).
The included instructions do not state that the LED can be anything other than on when load off.
Double-tap and Triple-tap for both up and down can be sent to the hub and can control additional scenes or devices.
For 3-way, use HS-WA100+
Both are great switches. At the end of the test, we went with the Leviton DZ215S-1BZ. We really wanted the double-tap and triple-tap functions, but the .5 second delay turned out to be a deal breaker (see video).
I have about eight of these in my house. I end up having to power-cycle breakers about once every 1-2 weeks. I mean they work 95% of the time but I'd rather them just work 100% of the time, is that too much to ask? From a light switch?
I would not recommend this product, nor the other items in the Leviton line. Home automation shouldn't be this frustrating.
This switch can pair with a DD00R-DLZ dimmer remote as there isn't a specific fan remote. When paired with the remote, the 7 LED's on the remote pair to the 4 on the fan controller by skipping the 2nd, 4th, and 6th LED on the remote. This is a really nice feature.
There are a few issues I have with this product. First, it does not have screw terminals in the sides like the 600w dimmer, switch, or dimming companion products. This has stranded wire running out the back that you wire-nut onto the existing wires. They provided 4 orange wire nuts in each package for this, which is nice. I'm not a fan of trying to wire nut stranded with solid wire. This also takes up extra space in your receptacle box, and that can be a tight fit with the size of these units and the age of your home. This is the same as the 1000w dimmer that I have, the DZ1KD-1BZ. Secondly, it's a new product. Most smart-home hubs will not yet have the profile for this product. I use a Hubitat Elevation in my home, and the "Leviton Fan Controller" module works well enough. It only has code for 3 speeds, referencing the first 3 out of 4 LED's. This is only a temporary issue as I'm sure this product will be added to any hubs with Leviton's other products. While this isn't an issue Leviton can fix directly, you should be aware of the limitation before buying the product.
Overall, this is a welcomed addition to the Leviton Z-Wave product family. I have 6 of them now installed in my home and have finally finished converting all switches to Z-Wave thanks to this product.
Top reviews from other countries
Also as per other reviewers, the click on the switches is quite loud and annoying, the dimmers do not have that problem though.
Installing these switches in a 3-way setup (with the companion switch) may require a deductive process to (a) figure out how the original 3-way switches were wired to each other, (b) which outlet box carries the hot and neutral lines from the circuit breaker box, and (c) which outlet box has the cabling to the load. I suspect several of the posted "does not work" reviews are the consequence of the installer not figuring out how to correctly wire this switch, which also includes figuring out how to provide this switch with the required neutral connection.
There is a very audible "click" when this switch is turned on and off either directly or by the companion remote switch. This "click" comes from the relay inside the switch, and not the switch paddle. Just be aware this is normal for this switch, and some reviewers have found this to be annoying.
(*) If you have purchased this switch after 2019 you will likely receive one with the latest version 1.20 firmware. Switches with firmware versions prior to 1.20 exhibit unpredictable behaviour (as pointed out in some of the earlier reviews posted here) such episodically losing communication with the Z-Wave hub. It is not possible to determine from external inspection which firmware version is installed on the switch - this can only be determined by looking at the detailed device status display provided for some Z-Wave hubs. For users of the SmartThings hub, you need to use the SmartThings web browser IDE interface - this status cannot be seen using the mobile app. If your switch is demonstrating these problems, or if you know your switch has a firmware version prior to 1.20, call Leviton technical support - they will provide (free of charge) a USB Z-Wave stick and the firmware update software required to fix this problem. On switches with firmware version 1.20 (which is on all Leviton Z-Wave switches now being shipped) this switch will work very reliably on a Z-Wave network.
I purchased this product from amazon in canada around 3 weeks back. Upon installation the dimmer itself is working fine. I then downloaded the "My Leviton" app from the Apple app store and am following instructions therein. However, the problem is that I am unable to find the Leviton device generated wifi. As I understand, I first need to find and connect to this wifi before the smart app on my phone can assist with adding this Leviton dimmer to my home wifi network.
Have submitted an email to support. Lets see if they respond. Will update the review accordingly.
I'm beginning to really like z-wave devices.
