Features

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 ft of the hub or another Z-Wave enabled repeater. Communication through exterior surfaces may reduce transmission distances.
  • An available interior switch wallbox with a line (hot), load, neutral, and ground wire.
  • To control the switch from more than one location such as in a 3-way or multi-way, you will need a wired DD0SR Companion device. Learn more about Companion devices and find connection instructions at leviton.com/decorasmart

Connections

Identify your wires

WARNING

  • TO AVOID FIRE, SHOCK, OR DEATH, turn OFF power at the circuit breaker.

Check your wallbox:

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

If your wallbox looks different, call an electrician.

Wire your switch

Single-pole installation:

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

NOTES:

  • 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 wallbox 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 switch to confirm it is receiving power, turn the power back OFF again at the breaker prior to completing the installation.
    • WARNING: Turn OFF power at the circuit breaker before screwing in your switch.
  3. Gently push wires into wallbox. Screw switch to box.
  4. Snap on Decora walllplate and restore power.

Congratulations!

  • Your Decora Smart Switch is ready to control your light.

SmartStart

Your Decora Smart Z-Wave 800 Series Switch 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 on 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.

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.

Setup mode

Enter setup mode:

  1. Hold the top rocker for 7 seconds. The Status LED will turn AMBER, release and the Status LED will blink AMBER.
  2. The device is now in setup mode.

Exit setup mode:

  1. Hold the top rocker for 7 seconds. The device will return to normal operation.

Adding the Decora Smart Z-Wave 800 Series Switch to a hub

When using a Z-Wave Plus certified hub, choose network wide inclusion or SmartStart. If network wide inclusion does not discover your device, try classic inclusion.

Network Wide Inclusion to a Z-Wave Network

Network Wide Inclusion allows your device to be included into the network using devices already paired to your home automation hub.
Start with the devices closest to the hub and work your way outward.

  1. Enter setup mode.
  2. Tap the top rocker 1 time. The Status LED will quickly flash GREEN. The device is now ready to learn into the Z-Wave network.
  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.
  3. Tap the top rocker 1 time, the Status LED will quickly flash GREEN.
  4. The Z-Wave controller will confirm successful exclusion from the Z-Wave network.

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

Switch is wired and installed but the light does not respond:

  • Make sure power has been restored at the circuit breaker.
  • Verify wiring connections are correct.

When power is applied to the switch, the light is OFF and does not respond:

  • For proper operation the switch needs a line (hot), neutral, load, and ground connection.
  • Confirm the white conductor is a neutral.

My lights work but they are flickering:

  • Unscrew light bulb and test with voltage tester to make sure a line (hot) and neutral wire are connected to the light.

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.
