  • Can I control a Cooper Receptacle with a Cooper Switch?

    I have a room where I want to add a floor lamp, plugged into one of Cooper RFTR9505-T receptacles. Can this receptacle be controlled by a Cooper RF9501 switch, which by itself does not control any load directly? I assume by setting up an association, I should be able to to. But I wanted to be sure before i go through the pain of adding a switch...

    No, not without problems

    The 501 Swihch will associate with and control the 505 Receptical. But that switch must also have a Load to function without generating lots of errors.

    You need to use the ASPIRE RF Accessory Switch RF9517.

    I am Using the Z-NET with 3.0.0.208 Zwave plugin.

      That's what I was afraid of... Accessory switch shouldn't be an issue, right? It should control the load indirectly, much in the same way as it does in my Cooper 3-way setups?

      I'd love to get one of those, to see it it works better than my Z-Troller. Unfortunately, it seems to be always out of stock...

        Yep, just like in the 3-way setup.

        I think they will have a lot of Z-NETS to release fast as soon as they pull the plugin out initial beta. That should be soon. All the basics seem to be working fine. At the moment I am much better off since I moved to HS3 back in July. I did junk all my 100 chip series devices and a few old 300 series. The hold up might be trying to meet their claim that Z-NET will work with all the older devices and some plugins.

        It doesl work much better than our old Z-Trollers, especially with all the newer Zwave devices and battery powered devices (except old ones).

        Hope you get yours soon.

          This should work no problem. You might also save money by buying non-functional 9517 accessory since you won't have any load on it.

          Switches that require load to operate are ones not needing neutral wire (9518/9520).
