Leviton In-Wall Z-Wave Switch wont follow schedule ON in new app, but follows schedule OFF

I’m having trouble with my switch (R51-DZ15S-1RZ) following a sunset lights on schedule. Attached the images of the sunrise and sunset schedules. I have to manually turn my lights on each night as the switch wont turn on via schedule, but when i leave in the morning the lights are off, so the sunrise schedule appears to work. I attempted to have the dimmer level reset each ON, but no change occured, and I rarely dim the lights anyway so they stay at 100% most of the time anyway. I do get the system notifications as expected, so the sunrise/sunset timing appears correct and the automation is kicking off.

Any ideas on why this wouldnt work?

Try setting the automation using the Classic app to see if that makes a difference.

My guess is that it’s just broken in the new app, as there are other problems with sunset rules in the new app. :disappointed_relieved:

Report it to support, and in the meantime, As @bry suggested, use the classic app for anything which doesn’t work in the new app.


It’s not a problem in the new app. My Sunset rules work just fine.

Good to know. No harm in either trying it in the classic app or having support look at it, though. :sunglasses:

Are you using the exact same Leviton model?

GE outdoor switch and socket plugs

One question: you said you tried using a dimmer level, but that’s not a dimming switch. Do you have the right model number? And if so, what DTH did you use for it?
