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.

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).
Finally updated to version 1.20 of the firmware. Issues 1 and 3 are fixed. Issue 2 is much better than before. Now pressing down on the dim paddle, starting at full brightness, adjusts the dim level so that it changes by large increments at the beginning and then by 1% once the brightness is below 10%. It is still possible to turn the light completely off by pressing down on the dim level paddle, but if you immediately press up the light will go back on to 1%.
This is a decent Z-Wave Plus dimmer that has a few issues that keep it from being rock solid.
Easy to trick SmartThings hub into thinking the light is on when it is actually off. To reproduce this issue, adjust the thin dim level paddle and then do nothing. At this point SmartThings thinks the light is on. Now press down on the main paddle to turn the (already off) light off. At this point SmartThings again thinks the light is still on. Now try to refresh the status of the light in SmartThings and the light is still on. This is an issue with the firmware in the dimmer and not the SmartThings device handler. The dimmer keeps reporting that the light is on at a certain dim level when the reality is that the light is off. I suppose this could be fixed by having the dimmer report that it's dim level is 0 when the light is off, or it could turn the light on whenever the thin dim level paddle is touched.
**Potential Fix that causes other device status issues**: The zwave.switchBinaryV1.switchBinaryGet() function can be used in the SmartThings device handler to get the true on/off status of the switch. There is a link to a device handler in the SmartThings community that has this functionality added. However, after using that custom device handler for a while I encountered a new issue on many of my DZ6HD dimmers where the device completely stops reporting its status to SmartThings. The only way I found to recover from this issue is to open the air gap (pull out thin dim level paddle) on the switch for a minute and then close it which fixes this new problem for a while. The problem eventually occurs again, so I'm stuck using the "Dimmer Switch" device handler that's built into SmartThings which does not address the original Issue #1.
I turn on the light and want to quickly lower the light to its lowest dim level setting by holding down on the thin dim level paddle. What ends up happening is that the light turns completely off instead of going to its lowest dim level. If I wanted to turn the light off I would press down on the main paddle. If I was to tap not too fast on the dim level paddle then I can avoid this issue. However, this behavior is inconsistent and annoying.
When used in 3-way switch scenario with the DD00R matching dimmer switch, instant "two-way feedback" functionality ceases to work when operating the remote. In other words, when I turn the light on/off or adjust the dim level settings on the main dimmer the status is instantly reported to the SmartThings hub. If the light is turned on or off from the matching remote, no commands are sent from the main dimmer to the hub.
I hope they issue a firmware update to fix these issues.

Also as per other reviewers, the click on the switches is quite loud and annoying, the dimmers do not have that problem though.
Edit: 06/19/2018 - I am updating my review from a 5 star to a 1 star. The switch has completely stopped functioning. It is not manually turning on anymore. I have tried restarting the switch with the breaker. I know it is not working anymore because there is a manual click that you hear when you turn the lights on. That click is not occurring anymore. I have reached out to Leviton support and am waiting to hear back from them. I will update my review if it gets fixed but I only had this switch for 11 months which shows the build quality may be poor for these switches...
Ive been looking for a decently price switched for months. I didn't want to spend $60 on a Z-Wave switch and also couldn't find WiFi bulbs with high enough lumens. Them I stumbled upon this product and wasnt sure about it since there were no reviews but I still jumped in. Glad I did because this is the perfect switch I was looking for. I have a Wink 2 hub. I might get more of these switches for my home. This one was installed to control my porch lights with geofencing enabled. Ask me if you have any questions about installing it. I had to add a neutral (WH) wire to make it work but other than that no issues.
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.
The OK: I used the recommended remote switch DD0SR-DLZ. When you control the lights from this slave switch, the status update is not pushed from the controller via ZWave. It waits till it is polled for a status update, which is 10 minutes.
The good: it is a rocker switch, but unlike the decor switches that stay either up or down once you push them, this one just returns to neutral/middle. It feels a little weird at first using this switch. However, I really like that up is always on, and down is always off. I would not hesitate to use this switch as an individual switch, but would consider something else for a 3 way switch.
Installation was fairly straightforward. As usual, you need a neutral (white) in the box. The switches are fairly wide and deep so make sure you have enough room in the box to contain them and any wiring.
Configuration was fairly easy but complicated by the Wink software being glitchy (this is, I suspect, Wink's fault so not blaming the switches here). After setup the switches have worked well, both as physical switches and also when controlled remotely by Alexa or Wink. The LED locator light is also nice at night.
Two subjective complaints:
1. The switches feel kind of cheap - it's a light plastic rocker with a clicky microswitch to activate and it just doesn't feel very high quality. I have Lutron Caseta switches for dimmable lights and they just feel so much nicer to use.
2. Switching on/off (either with the switch or remotely) uses a relay which makes a fairly prominent click. Other brands of switches do this without a noisy relay so it just feels 'cheap'
Overall, good, functional switches but a bit lacking in the 'feel' department.
Does not do instant status. On ISY994i I have to a program which responds to a Hail and then I query the switch to see what it did, which is close to instant status but not the same (other controllers may hide this and do automatically but the effect would be slower status response times). May as well buy other brands of switches that do Instant Status - you can buy a Zooz for same price and also has energy monitoring and USB. I give it three stars because the switch works and the fact that this type of plug in device instant status is not really necessary, but there are better options for same price or cheaper now so I cannot recommend.
I do also have the dimmer version and works much the same but dims and there is no click noise with that one. Same issues with instant status etc. but I have setup no problem in a scene with Insteon KeypadLinc button via ISY controller.
It does work as Z-Wave plus repeater however.
It does have a slight click noise when it goes off and on but not a big deal for my application at the front door.
I had thought about a timer and dusk sensors, but with multiple exterior fixtures, the cost and complexity added up--all of which was solved with this switch from Leviton!
Lastly, and the main reason for the lack of 1 star is there is an audible "click" when the light toggles states. It's quite loud and a little annoying (I can hear the click almost anywhere in my 960 sq ft condo). Had I known, I might not have purchased this switch.
Click the top for on and bottom for off, like regular switches which is great. Currently working well with my Wink hub (original one).
My only complaints would be that the switch feels a little cheap, probably due to the ability to change faceplates. The dim indicator and locator light is also hidden behind the plastic of the switch so it looks great when the indicators are off, but I find the fuzzy washed out look a little less than ideal while they're on.
Still going to keep using them and replacing any other switches with these.
