Description

The Leviton VRF01-1LZ is a 3-speed Z-Wave fan controller from the Leviton Vizia RF+ series.

The VRF01-1LZ allows you to control your fan via Z-Wave and can be used in both single-pole and 3-way and multi-pole situations.

When wiring in 3-way, the VRF01-1LZ must be matched with appropriate Z-Wave devices and NOT conventional 3-way switches. You can either pair with a matching VRCZ1-1L controller or VP00R-10Z / VP00R-1LZ coordinating remotes.

The Leviton VRF01-1LZ has 4 fan speed settings: off, low, medium and high. It has a microprocessor-controlled "kick-start" to allow the fan to go directly from off to any of its speed settings.

The VRF01-1LZ is a quiet fan speed controller, designed to eliminate any humming and contains RFI filtering for radio, audio and video equipment.

The Leviton VRF01-1LZ is a 1.5 amp dimmer and can handle up to 180 watts of load.

When you combine your Leviton VRF01-1L with a Z-Wave controller like the Honeywell LYNX 5100 or Honeywell Tuxedo Touch, you will be able to control your fans from your security system.

And when you sign up for an advanced Total Connect 2.0 package with remote home automation control, you can even adjust your fan settings on the go!

Like most Vizia RF+ series, the Leviton VRF01-1L comes in white with replaceable ivory and almond options in the package.

The Leviton VRF01-1LZ is a Z-Wave fan controller that is designed to be used alongside other switches in the Leviton Vizia RF+ lineup. This fan switch only uses standard Z-Wave connectivity, and it needs to be used with matching Z-Wave devices for a 3-way or multi-pole configuration. While this is convenient if you have compatible Z-Wave devices, you won't be able to use this in-wall fan controller with conventional 3-way switches. Most users looking to set up new in-wall Z-Wave switches will want to use newer Z-Wave Plus devices that offer the same great features and more reliable connectivity and performance. For that reason, we only give the Leviton VRF01-1LZ a 4-Star rating.

There are some nice aspects regarding the Leviton VRF01-1LZ. For one, it has three (3) available fan speed settings, plus an OFF setting. Its microprocessor controller allows the fan to immediately go to its applied setting. It is a quiet fan speed controller, which should eliminate any humming. It also uses RFI filtering to prevent interference from radio, audio, and video equipment. We have found that the Leviton VRF01-1LZ can be easily paired with a compatible Z-Wave controller, making it easy for a new user to get started with the device.

However, the downsides to the Leviton VRF01-1LZ are important to consider. The device can only be used with other compatible Leviton Z-Wave devices when setting up a 3-way or multi-pole setup. It cannot be used with conventional 3-way switches, which really limits how you can use the VRF01-1LZ with existing equipment. Also, the Leviton VRF01-1LZ only uses standard Z-Wave communication, so users looking for a new in-wall Z-Wave fan switch will likely want to explore newer Z-Wave Plus options instead. Overall, we feel as though going with a newer and more advanced Z-Wave fan controller is usually a better option. That is why the Leviton VRF01-1LZ only receives 4 Stars from us.

Good: Different Speed Options, Microprocessor Controller, RFI Filtering, Easy Pairing

Bad: Only Works w/ Compatible Leviton Devices for 3-Way, Stanard Z-Wave

Bottom Line: 4 Stars
