    Great switch, but PAY ATTENTION!

    Several of the reviews for this switch are not for the add-on, but for the full smart switch. THIS IS THE ADD-ON SWITCH! It has no smart capabilities itself, but it allows you to use a smart Z-wave or Zigbee GE switch in a 3-way switching environment. With that clarification out of the way, the add-on switch does exactly what you'd want it to do. The install is easy, and the switch is compatible with both the Z-Wave and Zigbee models of GE's smart switches (On/Off, Dimmer and Fan Control). Unlike the full models, the add-on only features terminals for the Neutral, Traveler and Ground wires. The rocker paddle stays in a neutral position, and hitting the top or bottom of the paddle toggles the connected smart outlet to perform as programmed.

    This is a great little add on switch to go with the master switch. The set up is easy if you have a neutral wire already in your wall where you are wiring the switch. I have had some little issue using with the google home where they don't talk to each other. But I think that more on google switch. All in all its what you need if you have the master switch and a 3 or 4 pole connection.

    Great Z-Wave In-Wall Switch

    Installation was fairly easy for a DIYer. The biggest challenge is that these switches require the neutral to function (the white wire in the back of the box), and when you're wiring up 3 - 5 switches in 1 box, you may need larger wire nuts to bundle all the neutrals together or to separate the neutrals apart to get them functional and safe.

    Doesn't work with Xfinity

    While the single in-wall switch and dimmers work fine with Comcast Xfinity the add-ons don't. I have a single dimmer installed and it works fine. I tried another light with 3-way switches and I got them wired fine and working manually and the touchscreen sees it but when it starts paring it comes up with an "Unsupported device" message.

    If you have the GE dimmer and you need a second switch for a three way application, you need this switch. Works perfectly. Just make sure to install this in the deceptively box that has no power from your electric box. The main dimmer goes in the hot location.

    Works Perfectly

    Works as advertised. I have it connected to a 2Gig Alarm.com control panel. It's so nice to automatically control external lights based on the sunrise/sunset. Be warned that this will only work if you have a neutral wire available.

    They work fine functionally but they don't have an LED indicator like the switches that they control. I would like very much if they had an indicator that could be configured like the master switches.

    Works without issue with either the 12 series or 14 series GE Z-Wave switches. A little expensive for what it is but not many options if you want to stick with GE Z-Wave.
