GE Z-Wave Dimmer Switch Blue Light

(Steve) #1

I just installed this switch and it works fine for turning on and off the lights, however, it does not dim manually nor do I see an option in ST to dim them. Additionally, the small blue light works opposite of what it should, it is blue when the lights are on and off when the lights are off. Thank you for any help or ideas.


Model number? There have been five or six of these over the years and they work a little differently.

I have the same thing except I have one smart dimmer switch (for the fan light) and one smart fan switch (for the fan) in our bedroom. These share the same line power and are not configured as a 3-way switch since there is only one switch to the light and one switch to the fan. I noticed that when the fan is off, the blue light is illuminated. When the light is off, the blue light is not illuminated (blue light is opposite for on/off). Could this be due to them sharing the same line from the breaker? They both work fine and the smartthings hub recognizes them correctly when they are on/off.


If you have the GE Z-Wave Plus Fan or GE ZigBee switches, you can toggle the led indicator light by hitting on-on-on-off in quick succession. Unfortunately always off is not an option.

Other GE switches may or may not work without a custom DTH to toggle the indicator. I believe most of the other GE switches also allow for always off (except the original GE Z-Wave Fan Switch).

Sounds like an on/off switch, not a dimmer. Which model? The led setting should be under your device settings in the classic app.

awesome… I did not know that.

I was getting upset about two of my switches where is thought the LED was broken when it did not work to set it via the DTH.

Thank you!
