GE 12729 Z-Wave Wireless Lighting Control Smart Dimmer Toggle Switch


Transform any home into a smart home with the GE z-wave smart lighting control smart dimmer toggle switch. The GE z-wave smart lighting control smart dimmer toggle switch replaces your current light switch, uses your existing wiring, and remotely control the on/off function and brightness level of permanently installed lighting. Use the dimmer feature to customize the lighting output and create the perfect ambiance for any room while providing ultimate flexibility in your home. The GE z-wave smart lighting control dimmer switch allows you to operate the switch by itself or easily integrate the switch with three- or four-way wiring configurations by adding the GE auxiliary switch for z-wave. Three-way wiring configuration turns the light or appliance on/off from two separate locations. Four-way wiring configuration turns the light or appliance on/off from three separate locations. The GE auxiliary switch for z-wave is required for three-way or four-way installations and is compatible with any z-wave certified gateway, providing access to many popular home automation systems. Take control of your home lighting with GE z-wave smart lighting controls! Z-wave is the world's largest ecosystem of interoperable smart home products. Z-wave lighting controls provide an easy-to-install and affordable system to control lighting and small appliances in your home. Add GE z-wave lighting controls to a z-wave certified gateway to access and control your home from anywhere in the world using your smartphone, tablet or computer as a home automation command center. Never worry if you accidentally left the lights on because you can turn them off remotely or program your lights to go on/off at specific times. Create customized lighting scenes for any occasion such as a "go to sleep" scene or a "movie night" scene. Give the illusion that someone is home by programming the lights to turn on/off while you are away-perfect for deterring crime and adding additional security.


  • Easily replace any standard in-wall switch with the GE z-wave controlled dimmer switch to turn lighting on/off or adjust dim levels with your mobile device or computer using any z-wave certified gateway
  • White lighting control matches most standard wall plates (wall plate not included)
  • Can be controlled in groups of multiple lights or turned on or off within ambient interior lighting scenes
  • Provides ultimate flexibility - use by itself or with up to four GE add-on switches in three, four, five and six-way wiring configurations (GE add-on switch is required for multi-switch applications)
  • Screw terminal installation provides improved space efficiency when replacing existing switches compared to flying leads


Use in conjunction with GE 12723 Add-On Switch to create a 3-way circuit



  1. Although I do my best to verify every product that is reported as compatible, things do change.
    • Firmware updates to either hub might render previously-compatible devices inoperable. Usually, problems like this are reported and addressed by Wink.
  2. Inclusion in this Wiki is a very good indicator of compatibility, but is not a guarantee.
    • One thing to be aware of is that "ZWave Plus" devices might not work with the Wink Hub (1st version), though they should work with the Wink Hub 2.
  3. I use a Wink Hub 2 as my primary controller.
    • My testing is done on the Wink Hub 2.
    • I try to find out if devices reported by others are Hub 1 or Hub 2, but I'm not always able to find out.
  4. I am a beta tester.
    • This means my hub might work with a device that won't work for the general public.
    • I try to avoid adding article for devices that are only compatible with the Wink beta firmware, but sometimes, something slips through.
    • If I report that it works, but it does not work for you, chances are it will start working for you in the near future.
