Leviton ZW6HD Decora Smart Z-WaveTM 800 Series Dimmer

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

Welcome

  • The Decora Smart Z-WaveTM 800 Series Dimmer is designed for use with modern Z-Wave hubs and makes it easier than ever to control your lights how you want.
  • This Dimmer is compatible with any Z-Wave-enabled network, regardless of the manufacturer, and can also be used with other devices displaying the Z-Wave logo.
  • As well, this device can act as a repeater to increase the reliability of the Z-Wave network.
  • The Decora Smart Z-Wave 800 Series Dimmer looks right at home with your other Decora® in-wall devices and features intuitive on/off and dim/bright control.
  • Add the Dimmer to your Z-Wave hub of choice to enable app commands, scheduling, and voice control of connected lighting.

We are here to help

Your dimmer works with:

  • Dimmable LED, dimmable CFL, incandescent, and MLV lighting.
  • Do not use your dimmer with metal wallplates, electronic low voltage, motor loads, or aluminum wire.
  • When two or more dimmers are installed next to each other, the load ratings become 500W incandescent and 500VA MLV for each dimmer. No reduction is necessary if the load is LED or CFL.
  • For compatible LED bulbs, go to leviton.com/led
  • Additional self-service support options can be found at leviton.com/decorasmart.

\(1\) What you need to make it work:

  • A Z-Wave compatible hub.
  • A Z-Wave mesh network to join. Ensure your device is installed within 50 feet of the hub or another Z-Wave-enabled repeater. Communication through exterior surfaces may reduce transmission distances.
  • An available interior switch wall box with a line (hot), load, neutral, and ground wire.
  • To control the dimmer from more than one location such as in a 3-way or multi-way, you will need a wired DD00R or DD0SR Companion device. Learn more about Companion devices and find connection instructions at leviton.com/decorasmart.

Identify your wires

WARNING: TO AVOID FIRE, SHOCK, OR DEATH, turn off power at the circuit breaker.

Check your wall box:

  1. Remove the wallplate and disconnect the existing switch.
  2. Restore power. Carefully test wires with a voltage tester to find the line (hot) wire.
  3. Turn OFF the power at the circuit breaker.
  4.  Mark the wires as shown below. Please note neutral wires are required to operate this device.
    • A quick tip: Neutral wires are typically white and will be found bundled inside the electrical box.
    • If your wall box looks different, call an electrician.

Wire your dimmer

Single-pole installation:

  1. Work only one connection at a time.
  2. Connect wires as shown using the included wire connectors.

NOTES:

  • A neutral connection is required.
  • The YELLOW/RED traveler wire is only used in 3-way applications; remember to put a wire connector on the YELLOW/RED traveler even if not in use.
  • If your wall box contains a different wiring configuration, contact Leviton’s technical support team or consult an electrician.

Test and install

  1. Restore power.
  2. After powering ON the dimmer to confirm it is receiving power, turn the power back OFF again at the breaker before completing the installation.
    • WARNING: Turn OFF power at the circuit breaker before screwing in your dimmer.
  3. Gently push wires into wallbox. Screw dimmer to box.
  4. Snap on the Decora wallplate and restore power.
    • Congratulations! Your Decora Smart Dimmer is ready to control your light.

SmartStart

  • Your Decora Smart Z-Wave 800 Series Dimmer is compatible with SmartStart.
  • SmartStart-enabled devices can be added to a Z-Wave network by scanning the Z-Wave QR code on the top of the device, on the strap, or the back of the unit box with a compatible Z-Wave controller that supports SmartStart inclusion.
  • The device should be added automatically within 10 minutes of being switched on and in the network vicinity.Leviton-ZW6HD-Decora-Smart-Z-Wave-800-Series-Dimmer-FIG-1 \(10\)
  • The QR code label with DSK is located on the top of the device. If required, the PIN code is underlined on the label. The PIN code is also located on the front strap.

  3. Use the Z-Wave controller to complete the device enrollment process (follow the Z-Wave controller instructions)
  4. The device’s Status LED will turn off and then flash GREEN 4 times to confirm it has been successfully added to a Z-Wave network. If the device was not successfully added, the Status LED will flash RED 4 times.

Classic inclusion to a Z-Wave network

For older controllers, Classic Inclusion is supported. Depending on the age of the controller it may need to be 3 to 35 feet from the device when including.

  1. Enter setup mode.
  2. Follow the Z-Wave controller instructions to enter inclusion mode.
  3. Tap the top rocker 1 time, the Status LED will quickly flash GREEN.
  4. The Z-Wave controller will confirm successful inclusion to the Z-Wave network.

Exclusion from a Z-Wave network

The Exclusion command found in the Z-Wave controller is used as a best practice for removing devices from a Z-Wave network.

  1. Enter setup mode.
  2. Follow the Z-Wave controller instructions to enter exclusion mode.

Factory default

When removing a Z-Wave device from the network, it is best practice to use the exclusion process. In situations where a device needs to be returned to factory default settings, follow the steps below. Please use this procedure only when the network primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable.

  1. Hold the top rocker for 14 seconds: After the first 7 seconds, the Status LED will turn AMBER. Continue holding until the Status LED flashes RED/AMBER then release.
  2. The device will reset.

What to do if…

When power is applied, the light turns ON but the dimmer is not able to change the light level:

  • For proper operation, the dimmer needs a line (hot), neutral, load, and ground connection.
  • Confirm the WHITE conductor is neutral.
  • If using LED or CFL bulbs, make sure they are dimmable.

The dimmer does not dim low enough or begins to flicker at the low end of the dimming range:

  • Use the procedure described in the Customization section on to increase the minimum dim level to the point that does not cause the LED bulb to flicker.

Intermittent dimmer operation:

  • Confirm the load does not exceed its ratings.

How do I clean my device?

  • To clean, use a damp cloth with mild soap. DO NOT use disinfecting products, including foggers, sprays, or other types of atomized cleaning agents.
  • Visit leviton.com/decorasmart or contact technical services for additional help.

Safety first

WARNINGS:

  • TO AVOID FIRE, SHOCK, OR DEATH; TURN OFF POWER at the circuit breaker or fuse and test that power is off before wiring!
