Description

Leviton's VRI10-LZ is a 1000W incandescent scene capable lightbulb dimmer. Like its 600W cousin, Leviton's VRI06-1LZ, it is a single pole dimmer that can be installed as a 3-way dimmer.

When wiring as 3-way dimmer, you must properly coordinate the VRI06-1LZ with a compatible Leviton Vizia RF+ device. If your configuration is wired properly for 3-way and multi-pole (e.g. a traveler wire), you can use a Leviton VP00R-1LZ or Leviton VP00R-10Z. If you do not have the proper 3-way lighting, but need to control your light from multiple locations, you can use a Leviton VRCZ1-1LZ single button controller.

It is the perfect addition to any home with one of Honeywell's many z-wave enabled systems such as the L5100 with a Z-Wave module or a VISTA series panel with a Tuxedo Touch keypad added to the system.

This 120 Volt AC 60Hz dimmer has in it a green LED and a brightness indicator. It comes complete with white ivory and light almond faceplates. While there are some Z-Wave options that will work with fluorescent bulbs, most dimmer switches (this included) will only function with incandescent bulbs. If you are in need of a fluorescent light switch, the VRS15-1LZ is a good alternative, although it is a simple on/of switch.

Decent, but Better Options Exist

The Leviton VRI10-1LZ is a Z-Wave dimmer switch that is capable of supporting a 1000W incandescent load. It is similar to that of the Leviton VRI06-1LZ, except that the Leviton VRI10-1LZ increases the load limit to 1000W incandescent, up from 600W incandescent for the VRI06-1LZ. The Leviton VRI10-1LZ is reliable and easy to use, but it has been discontinued, and there are more advanced Z-Wave Plus models available. For that reason, we only give the Leviton VRI10-1LZ a 4 Star rating.

There are some aspects for the Leviton VRI10-1LZ that we appreciate. It can pair nicely with nearly any Z-Wave controller or hub, making it quite versatile. The device has an LED light, which is useful for checking status and troubleshooting. If paired with other Leviton Vizia RF+ devices, a 3-way or multi-pole wiring configuration is possible. Many users with existing Leviton Vizia RF+ devices will add the Leviton VRI10-1LZ to expand their networks. We also appreciate the interchangeable faceplates for the Leviton VRI10-1LZ, as they give the product a nice personalized touch.

But the downsides for the Leviton VRI10-1LZ should not be ignored. The Leviton VRI10-1LZ has been discontinued, so you are unlikely to find it new. If you find a used model, then it should still work fine. But remember that if you are building around a Z-Wave Plus controller or hub, then you will probably want to get a Z-Wave Plus dimmer switch instead. While you can use standard Z-Wave devices like the Leviton VRI10-1LZ with Z-Wave Plus controllers, it is usually better to use Z-Wave Plus devices whenever you can, as they more effectively strengthen the network. And although we appreciate the potential for 3-way and multi-pole wiring, the fact that you are restricted to using Leviton Vizia RF+ devices is rather limiting. Because of these downsides, we can only give the Leviton VRI10-1LZ a 4 Star rating.

Good: Pairs w/ Almost Any Z-Wave Controller, LED Light, Use w/ Other Leviton Vizia RF+ Devices, Interchangeable Faceplates

Bad: Discontinued, Standard Z-Wave, 3-Way & Multi-Pole Requires Other Leviton Vizia RF+ Devices

Bottom Line: 4 Stars
