    no idea. the wires required are the same but I have no way of knowing if it will work.

      Hm. Would the engineers know? Will it hurt the hardware to try? I haven't ever had any non-GE accessory switches to test with.

          Can the dimmer switch control a ceiling fan?

            I made the mistake of install ivory colored outlets and switches when we remodeled. I also vote for ivory covers. Can't order until then.

              no. the HS-WS100+ switch can be used for on-off control of a fan. If you need a controller with speed adjustments, you'll need to GE fan controller that we carry.

              Barry - there's a chance we can get light almond but ivory is not available to us. sorry.

                Installed my On/Off switch this afternoon. Looks good, and paired easily.

                Using it in place of an Insteon KeypadLinc. Works nicely using both double-click and triple-click, which do not operate the load.

                Quite happy with the product.

                    Is there any specific reason not to use dimmers if the ramp rate can be set to act like on/off switch?

                      i use this in the kitchen to switch 5 other lights so the all come on at once, not on the double tap but on a single press. its also not dependent on homeseer so it works regardless of homeseer being up or not.

                      it switches on the main lights, sink lights, under cabs and also accent lighting.

                      did the same thing in the bedroom.

                        i use dimmers mainly so that i can adjust the light level. i have a few dimmers set on instant on as i have had guests get confused by the ramp on effect.

                          Ah yes, the 'ol anything other than a traditional on off switch confuses me crowd. Guests sometimes are afraid to try to use our Leviton paddle switches, which I find comical.

                            What z-wave needs is an answer to the fanlic. I can't believe no one has made one yet. Because of this, I can't leave insteon.... Though the new features of double and triple taps intrigues me.

                            Do the associations work for dimming like it does in insteon (the linked devices all dim together in unison when adjust the dim level)?

                              Reposting on this thread. I ordered 5 dimmers, 5 companions (2-way) & 2 relay switches on Tuesday to evaluate and they showed up today. I just installed the first relay with companion, straight forward, included via Z-Tool+ app and manually controlled from the web interface and HStouch with no issues.

                              I'm just starting to overhaul my old system (Stargate/HS2/X-10) with a brand new ZeeS2 and this was the first Z-Wave device I connected. Switches look like quality built hardware.

                              Pretty happy to see the price point on these better than anything else with instant status, and I hope to make use of the double tap to replicate something my old system does to ignore motion and timers to leave lights off/on.

                                Well, instant status does not seem to be working. When locally controlled from main or companion switch the device status remains unchanged on the web interface and HStouch. I didn't see any configs in HS3 to enable this. Am I missing something?
