The GE 46201 Enbrighten Z-Wave Plus In-Wall Switch is used for controlling a hardwired lighting load or another powered device. It can be used with LED, CFL, Incandescent, and Halogen bulbs. The in-wall switch is suitable for use in a multi-switch setup when used with compatible GE devices.
Adding a Z-Wave switch can really make your life easier. By enrolling the 46201 with a Z-Wave hub you will be able to control your lights from anywhere using a compatible automation platform. You can also create designated scenes for your Z-Wave lights so that they activate automatically based on a set schedule or with certain predetermined events.
As a Z-Wave Plus device the GE 46201 offers extended communication range and improved reliability when compared with standard Z-wave devices. The GE 46201 must be paired with a Z-Wave Plus controller in order to take advantage of the extended range and enhanced reliability of Z-Wave Plus. Remember that if the Z-Wave Plus signal from the GE46201 "hops" or passes through a classic non-Plus Z-Wave device, then the signal will be "downgraded" to standard Z-Wave. Other Z-Wave devices can also pass through the GE 46201, thereby allowing the GE 46201 to operate as a Z-Wave repeater. A Z-Wave signal can make up to four (4) "hops" on its way to the controller.
The GE 46201 is a smart in-wall switch that replaces an existing in-wall switch. You must connect a neutral wire with the GE 46201 in order to complete the setup. The GE 46201 can be used in a multi-switch configuration when paired with another compatible GE Switch, such as a GE 12723, GE 12728, GE 46199, or GE 46200. Up to four (4) switches can be connected to a single device. It comes with interchangeable white and light almond face plates. Remember to cut the power at the breaker when installing.
