The Linear WD1000Z-1 is a 1000 watt Z-Wave light dimmer. The dimming (press and hold) and toggling (press and release) capacity allows this device to replace any standard light dimmer switch as long as the load is under 1000 Watts. In order to calculate the total wattage on your load simply count the number of the bulbs on the load by turning on the current switch. Then multiply the number of bulbs by the wattage on each bulb. Generally, the bulbs are the same wattage but it is worth checking if you are close to the maximum 1000 watts.
The WD1000Z-1 fits into a standard single gang J-box and requires line (120VAC), neutral, and ground from the electrical panel to the dimmer. Then from the dimmer to the lights you will run the neutral and the load wires. The physical dimmer behaves just like any standard dimmer when it comes to electrical wiring and local control. What makes this dimmer is special is that it is outfitted with a Z-Wave chip so it can "speak Z-Wave."
The Honeywell LYNX Touch series (L5100, L5200 and L7000) supports control of up to 40 Z-Wave lights via the Honeywell L5100-ZWAVE controller. This is a card that simply inserts into the LYNX Touch like the WIFI card. The Honeywell VISTA P-series (VISTA-15P, 20P, 21iP, 128BPT and 256BPT) also support Z-wave lighting control except there are two options for Z-Wave controllers. The Tuxedo Touch keypad is a graphical touchscreen display keypad that offers Z-Wave integration of up to 232 devices. The VISTA Automation Module (VAM) is a more affordable option which offers the control of up to 40 Z-wave devices. They both require a 4-wire connection to the ECP bus. The VAM is completely web-based and does not have any display for local control.
**Please note: If you are installing this unit in 2+ gang box, you will need to break off the tab(s). Each tab accounts for 100 watts. If you are setting up a 2-gang box you will only break off a single tab (900w Max). However for 3 gang and above both tabs must be removed which brings the maximum load down to 800w.**
