Frequently asked question

Will this work on 220v?

Yes it is designed for 220v

What's the proper way to wire this for a hot water heater? (us/canada, 240v, 2 x 120v hot (each with a different phase) + 1 ground (no neutral)

Anything that is not single phase cannot have twice the voltage across two hot lines. If each line has 120V and there are 240V between the two lines, then it must be single phase system. I use mine in the US with 2x120V lines (single phase) and ground, no neutral. Works just fine... :)

Will this work with the Samsung Smartthings Hub?

Yes, this absolutely will work with the Samsung Smartthings Hub (at least the 2nd gen hub). I've had it working perfectly with the Smartthings Hub G2 for almost two years. I hate it when people people answer questions on here or elsewhere, but don't actually answer them... such as 'contact the manufacturer,' etc. What … see more Yes, this absolutely will work with the Samsung Smartthings Hub (at least the 2nd gen hub).

Is this UL certified? Thx

No, z-wave devices are not yet UL listed, this is coming next year. the ZW078 is labelled as conforming to UL Std's, but is not officially labelled as 'UL Certified' or 'UL Listed', no zwave devices are.

    Well made Z-Wave controllable switch for pool pumps and other high current electrical devices

    If you’re looking for a Z-Wave switch to control your pool, hot water heater or other high current electrical device your choices are limited.

    Leviton sold a product (CA3750) but has been discontinued and did no operate reliably (these units frequently lost their pairing to your Z-Wave network and required frequent reprogramming).

    GE sells a product (which I have no experience with installing and using)

    Then there’s this product, the Aeon Labs switch.

    First, as the photos reveal the switch is contained in a plain white square box. It is IP44 rated meaning it is ‘protected from water spray from any direction.’ Can it be used outdoors? I’d say maybe. The enclosure is certainly not a durable as a Nema 3R rated enclosure which offers protection from rain, wind, dust, etc. Mine is installed in my garage, I would probably not install this unit directly outside without another enclosure of some sort.

    Securing wires to this switch is a bit interesting. Typical Nema 3R enclosures can use a typical Romex wire clamp. For this product both wires come up into the product through rubber grommets at the bottom of the unit that you must slice open with a knife or razor blade. Inside the box are 2 plastic clamps secured by threaded screws (there is both a threaded metal screw and bolt vs a metal sheet metal screw screwing into the plastic of the enclosure) which provides a strong clamping to the box.

    Wiring the product was also a little interesting. The product comes with a number of wire terminal crimp connectors. I chose not to use these connectors and attached the 12-2 wire directly to the switch. I also had to spend a little time studying the manual to determine which terminals on the switch to use for a single pole circuit.

    Operating the switch of course can be through your Z-Wave system but there is also a button on the switch to operate it manually. When you push the button the switch energizes the circuit and a red LED illuminates. One odd thing about the design here is when you install the cover, the switch is not visible or clearly marked and to operate the switch you simply press on the front top of the cover. Pushing hard enough will depress the button on the switch inside the cover and the light from the LED will shine through the plastic informing you that the switch is energized.

    Finally, one added bonus of this switch is it reports energy usage to your Z-Wave controller. This could be interesting information for some people.

    Bottom line: This is a well made product that works reliably. I would definitely buy this product again.

    Works without neutral when used with 240V

    I wanted a smart switch to use with my dumb window air conditioner which has a 240V NEMA 6-15 plug. Because this was going to be used indoors, weather proofing or range was not important, but the size was and this was the smallest 240V ZWave switch I could find.

    The problem with NEMA 6-15 is that it is a 3 wire system with a ground and 2 hot wires and no neutral. Unfortunately this switch claims that it will not work without neutral. I dug a bit into their wiring diagrams and realized that most of them didn’t have neutral connected either. You do need to connect L1 and L2 though. If you are using 120V (or on 240V in the EU), then you need to connect the live to L1 and the neutral to L2. This means not only is neutral not required, but connecting both L1 and L2 is required even if you have only one live.

    I bought a 240V extension cord on Amazon, cut it into half and wired the L1, L2 and ground (and no neutral) through this switch. There’s a button on the switch which toggles the switch on and off. You need to press and hold the button to put the switch into pairing mode (the manual incorrectly says to press the button which will just toggle the switch on/off). It paired with my Aeotec dongle on the first attempt. The connection has been solid without any issues and the switch works perfectly without overheating. It is a bit loud when it goes on or off though.

    Finally you need to go to the control panel of your ZWave system and enable power, current and voltage reporting. They are disabled by default.

    Great product but crappy instructions

    I have a ‘on demand’ hot water circulation, which consists of a pump and a small 10 gallon electric water heater. This basicially ran 24/7 to circulate hot water through the pipes. This is a 2nd home, where we are not at all the time.

    I was bale to use this switch to remotely turn on/off through my home automation system(Nexia). my problem was I had 2 120v components heater and pump), and this was rated for up to 220. The instructions on the product suck, pardon my french. Since the switch has 2 hots, 2 grounds, and a neutral, once would think you could hook up 2 120v components verse 1 220. I found someone online that succesfully hooked this up to 120. I finally got to work, by using hot 2 verse hot one on the input, which would have been nice if there were instructions.

    Anyway the product works like a charm now, I am still bitter about their lack of instructions though, it would have saved me 4 hours on a saturday. Hopefully someone else will read this and realize it can be done. Just has to be hooked up a bit diffferently.

    Just to recap, I have one hot 120 going in, and 2 hot 120v coming out to both pump and heater. Finally worked when i put the 120v hot on line 2 coming in verse line 1.
