Leviton VRCS2-MRZ Vizia RF + 2-Button Switches


OVERVIEW


The Vizia RF + family of products captures the essence of "smart" lighting control with its embedded Z-Wave radio frequency technology and stylish form factor that is compatible with Leviton's hallmark Decora design. Robust features like Zone Control, Scene Control and Timed Events give you one-touch control of your home's lighting and any Z-Wave enabled device. Zone Control is your key to controlling multiple light sources in many rooms or areas of your home with one push of a button on a zone controller. Scene Control lets you vary the light levels in a room for any activity or change the ambiance with one touch on a scene controller. Using Timed Events, you can schedule lights to turn on and off or activate any network device at preset times to enhance security or enjoy a more convenient lifestyle. The Vizia RF + line includes dimmers, switches, remotes and fan speed controls that all work together to create a wireless mesh network of automated lighting control in one room or your entire home. Vizia RF + 2-Button Scene Controller with Switches is ideal for remote control of up to two different scenes of Vizia RF + scene capable devices as well as ON/OFF switching for two Incandescent, fluorescent, electronic low voltage or magnetic low voltage lighting loads, providing one solution for multiple devices. The Vizia RF + 2-button scene controller with switches can control two loads in one wallbox. White face is assembled on the device with ivory and light almond faces included.

NOTES

Try These steps if you have issues pairing this device to Wink...

(all of these steps done with the Wink hub only a few feet away from the device. this is important)

  1. Exclude the device if it has been previously included in any previous Z-wave network. To do this, press and hold one of the buttons until it blinks amber (~5 seconds). Then put the Wink app/hub into exclude mode. It's important that the button be blinking BEFORE you put the hub in exclude mode. In general, much weirdness can be avoided by always putting the device into amber blinking mode before setting the hub.
  2. Do the other button the same way, then do the "remote" / controller by pressing both buttons together until they blink amber and then exclude.
  3. Reset the VRCS2: hold both buttons until they blink red.
  4. At this point, it's not really fully reset -- you need to cut the power to the device by tripping the breaker. This step is essential. I did a Z-Wave network repair during this time and waited 10-15 minutes.
  5. When you put the breaker back on, the device should have it's default association present (pressing the buttons will control the loads individually). I noticed that if the VRCS2 is fully reset, the button momentarily blinked red when I pressed the buttons.
  6. Associate the "controller" by pressing both buttons together until they turn amber, and then adding from the Wink app. Again, order matters here. DON'T press the "tap to configure" option -- we don't want this controller device to be configured, and we'll delete it later. If you configure, it can break the association between the controller and the loads. We want this part to stay factory fresh.
  7. Associate the two buttons one at a time by holding them until it blinks amber and then adding in the Wink app. DO tap to configure these.
  8. After you're done adding the two buttons, verify that the physical buttons both still control their corresponding loads. If it works, you're golden, if not, start over completely. It works deterministically for me, but YMMV.
  9. Delete the "remote", If present, from the Wink app by going into preferences and deleting it.

If your setup is like mine, everything should be working nicely at this point. I found that I could repeat this process and get the same result.

DISCLAIMER

  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.
