Single Pole (One location) or 3-Way (Multi-location) Scene Capable Electronic Switch INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS:
• • • • To be installed and/or used in accordance with appropriate electrical codes and regulations. If you are unsure about any part of these instructions, consult a qualified electrician. Vizia RF +™ electronic switches are not compatible with standard 3-way or 4-way switches. They must be used with compatible Vizia +™ or Vizia RF +™ controllers. Recommended minimum wall box depth is 2-1/2".

WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS:

DI-000-VRS15-02A

• Use only one (1) Vizia RF +™ Scene Capable Switch in a multi-location circuit with up to 9 coordinating remotes (without LEDs) or up to 4 matching remotes (with LEDs). The remote(s) will turn the load on (“at the level selected” for dimmers only) at the control. • Maximum wire length from dimmer to all installed remotes cannot exceed 300 ft (90 m). • Disconnect power at circuit breaker or fuse when servicing, installing or removing fixture. • Use this device only with copper or copper clad wire. With aluminum wire use only devices marked CO/ALR or CU/AL.

INTRODUCTION
Leviton’s Vizia RF +™ Z-Wave components are designed to communicate with each other via Radio Frequency (RF) to provide remote control of your lighting. Using RF technology allows Leviton to provide the greatest signal integrity possible. Each module in Leviton’s Vizia RF +™ component line is a Z-Wave® enabled device. In a Z-Wave® network, each device is designed to act as a router. These routers will re-transmit the RF signal from one device to another until the intended device is reached. This ensures that the signal is received by its intended device by routing the signal around obstacles and radio dead spots. The Scene Capable Electronic Switch 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.

CAUTION:
Remember to exercise good common sense when using the Timer features of your Remote – especially when scheduling unattended devices. There can be some unexpected consequences if not used with care. For example, an empty coffee pot can be remotely turned on. If that should happen, your coffee pot could be damaged from overheating. If an electric heater is turned on by remote control while clothing is draped over it, a fire could result. DO NOT USE the remote for the control of high power heating appliances such as portable heaters. This device will not control lighting that is used with electronic low-voltage and high frequency power supply transformers, nor high pressure discharge lamps (HID lighting). This includes mercury-vapor, sodium vapor and metal halide lamps.

TROUBLESHOOTING
• Lights Flickering - Lamp has a bad connection. - Wires not secured firmly under terminal screws of switch and/or remote. • Light does not turn ON and Locator LED does not turn ON - Circuit breaker or fuse has tripped. - Lamp is burned out. - Lamp Neutral connection is not wired. • Remote does not operate lights - Ensure that total wire length does not exceed 300 ft (90 m).

Factory Default:
If your switch is not responding, or you are unable to control it after you have tried to Include/Exclude it multiple times, it may be necessary to reset the switch to its original factory settings. To accomplish this, proceed as follows: • On the switch, engage the air-gap switch by gently Gently press top pressing the top of the push pad until the bottom lifts of push pad completely out of the frame and a click is heard (refer to figure). Wait 5 seconds and then press the push pad back into the frame and hold push pad until the locator LED turns Amber and then flashes Red. The switch is now reset. Once the switch is reset, it will be necessary to Re-Include it to a network before it can be used. CAUTION: SETTING A DEVICE TO A FACTORY DEFAULT DOES NOT EXCLUDE THAT DEVICE FROM A NETWORK. THE EXCLUSION PROCEDURE MUST STILL BE FOLLOWED TO REMOVE THE DEVICE FROM THE PRIMARY CONTROLLER’S INFORMATION TABLE. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN SYSTEM THAT IS SLOW TO RESPOND, OR MAY FAIL TO RESPOND TO SOME DEVICES.
