Device detailed description

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.

Frequently asked question

I give up. it says 'white/ivory/light almond'. what color is the actual switch itself? i gather that it comers with an extra bezel.

I inquired as to the part numbers and availability of replacement paddle faces for other colors. As of mid-March 2017, they apparently are only available via electrical supply distributors, but are supposed to become available via retail channels (including Amazon) 'very soon'. I was told that the part number and color… see more I inquired as to the part numbers and availability of replacement paddle faces for other colors. As of mid-March 2017, they apparently are only available via electrical supply distributors, but are supposed to become available via retail channels (including Amazon) 'very soon'. I was told that the part number and colors are as follows: FOR DIMMERS: White (DDKIT-00W), Ivory (DDKIT-00I), Light Almond (DDKIT-00T), Gray (DDKIT-00G), Black (DDKIT-00E), and Brown (DDKIT-00B), FOR SWITCHES: White (DDKIT-0SW), Ivory (DDKIT-0SI), Light Almond (DDKIT-0ST), Gray (DDKIT-0SG), Black (DDKIT-0SE), and Brown (DDKIT-0SB).

Does this switch have the colored wires already attached like the older dzmx1?

Indeed, wire leads are provided on the DZ15S and DZ6HD, whereas terminal screws are available on the DZ1KD. Technical support is available via e-mail ([email protected]), phone support (800-824-3005) and live chat via Leviton.com. We look forward to hearing from you.David KellerLeviton… see more Indeed, wire leads are provided on the DZ15S and DZ6HD, whereas terminal screws are available on the DZ1KD.

Does the dz15s z-wave plus switch have status light indicator under the switch to find it in the dark?

The BZ15S-1BZ Decora switch (specifically) has a green LED on the bottom that illuminates when the switch is in the off position.

Does it work with wink hub

It works great with Samsung Smartthings Hub and should work with Wink. It supports Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus.

    A little bit difficult to activate

    I have one other Leviton device and it is at the far end of the house. It disconnects and has to be reconnected to my Wink hub periodically. Last week it disconnected again. Being house-bound due to the Corona Virus, I decided to spend some time and try to fix this problem once and for all.
    I went to Amazon and bought this and installed it at about a halfway point between my hub and the older installed Leviton switch, so that the Z-wave at the far end of the house could make a better link to my hub with this as a ‘bridge’ device.
    In wiring it, the Red terminal has to go to the load – I incorrectly connected the load to the white terminal at first, and then found my error and reconnected it properly. You need a Neutral wire in the box connected to the ‘White’ terminal to use the switch. (Hint: You can go against code and use the ground wire as a neutral if the box does not have a neutral, if the switch is not already on a ground fault, as the ground wire is exactly the same polarity as a neutral wire).
    The difficult thing for me was linking it the new Leviton switch to my WINK hub. You have to put the hub in the linking mode, which is not hard to do with the app on my Android phone. You then have to depress the Leviton switch (either turning it ‘On’ or ‘Off’) until the solid green light at the base of the switch turns on. Once that occurs, you depress the Leviton switch using the top of the switch (the ‘On’ portion) for seven seconds or until the solid green light starts to flash. I did this repeatedly with no success – and that was my fault.
    There is one more step – and that is what I missed at first. Once the green light is flashing, you have to depress the switch one more time in order to initiate the pairing sequence. After about an hour of false starts, I re-read the instructions and found that I had missed this last step. Once I discovered this (it was in the instructions provided by Leviton, but I missed it), the pairing happened in a few seconds. Whew. I followed the prompt and named the new switch for the light that it controlled.
    Then I went to the WINK app on the phone and selected Z-wave Network Rediscovery to ‘remap’ the Z-wave signal. Everything worked great. Finally I went to my Amazon Alexa, and verbally asked it to discover new devices. It found the new switch in about 30 seconds, and from that point on I could control the switch from Alexa.
    Finally I went to the original problem Leviton switch at the far end of the house. After putting the WINK hub in the pairing mode, I first disconnected that switch from the WINK hub. I then went through the Leviton ‘Reset’ process (which consisted of putting the switch in the flashing mode and pressing the top of the switch several times). I then went to the WINK app and disconnected that switch from my WINK hub.
    Once that was done, I reconnected that Leviton switch to the WINK hub using the same sequence. I used to connect the new switch. I named my original switch by a new name just to be certain that Alexa would not be confused. I am not sure if I needed to do that or not, but I did and it worked great. I then used the Zwave Network Rediscovery option on the WINK app to make sure that the original switch was using the optimum path for its signal (there is no way to confirm that it is using the optimum path – I just hoped it would do so). Finally I went back to the Alexa App and ‘discovered’ the renamed switch. Now everything works great.
    In summary, the Leviton works fine, but it difficult to link due in part to the Z-Wave technology.
    I found the Moes brand switches (they do not use Z-Wave) to be less expensive and far superior if connecting to a 3-way circuit (you only need to replace one of the 3-way switches with the Moes brand – incredibly clever technology by the switch designer – and although Moes had some bad reviews on Amazon, Moes has worked reliably for me for over a year wherever I installed it, and installed three of them). But once you have started with a Z-wave, you have to use other Z-wave devices to set up a decent network.
    Hope this info is helpful to others who have selected Z-Wave.

    Easy to set up

    I bought a new chandelier with dimmable LED bulbs, and wanted a z-wave dimmer to control it. This one was simple to install once I read the instructions completely (first time through I miswired it). Pairing with my SmartThings hub was easy. My only complaint is that at low levels it sometimes flickers a bit.

    High quality Z-Wave fan controller

    I really like the look and feel of the Leviton Z-Wave decora switches compared to other Z-Wave switch offerings, so that is the ecosystem I have adopted. I have some fans connected to wall-control switches and so used this switch to get the fan included in the Z-Wave system.
    It is a great look and feel, and high quality like the other switches in the ecosystem. The fan controller has 4 fan speeds vs a more typical 3 speed decora switch, which is a nice bonus.
    One thing to note is that I think the fan controller is a newer product than the standard switch and dimmer switches, as the green light below the switch is every so slightly brighter, so especially at night you can tell which one is the fan controller vs the others. Maybe that’s a good thing if you wanted to tell them apart (and you leave it in the default locator mode, which is what I do).
    It uses stranded wire pigtails for the connections rather than screw terminals. I have not yet decided which I like better, as stranded wire tends to require extra space in the box, but it’s easier to pull out the device. I have not used theses in 3 way mode, so I can’t comment on that aspect. The various AC motor fans I have used this with have never had any trouble.
    Sending Z-Wave commands also works just as expected. The default fan speed levels are 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%. An important thing to note is that the Z-Wave implementation in the fan controller implements Instant Status, so your Z-Wave controller doesn’t need to poll the switch to know the state.
    I included a photo that shows the fan controller switch (with the Z-Wave sticker still on it) next to a standard Leviton decora switch, and standard Leviton Z-Wave decora switch and a Leviton Z-Wave dimmer switch.
