How to connect Leviton Z-Wave devices

Automating your lights is a great introduction to the Internet of Things and your own smart home ecosystem. Leviton devices include excellent smart Z-Wave switches, dimmers, and plug-in modules that allow you to make your wall lights, plugged-in lights, and appliances remotely controllable and automatable, with the help of SmartThings. These devices are also Z-Wave repeaters and will extend the range of your Z-Wave network.

 

This article will tell you how to connect Leviton Z-Wave Switches, Dimmers, and Outlets. 

Note: If you have a Leviton ZigBee device, follow these instructions for how to connect a Leviton ZigBee device. If you have the Leviton ZigBee Wireless Load Control Module, follow these instructions here. Consult the documentation that came with your device if you’re unsure which communication protocol it uses (ZigBee or Z-Wave).

Troubleshooting

  • During connection, if the device’s locator LED is flashing amber while the Hub is searching, wait until the LED stops flashing/becomes solid, then press the push pad or programming button once to turn the device on
  • The locator LED will turn OFF when the device pairs with the Hub
  • If the locator LED turns solid red, there may be a communication error. Refer to the Troubleshooting section of the device’s instruction manual
