Linear WS15Z-1 Z-Wave Wall Switch


  • Requires a Neutral
  • Range: Up to 100 feet
  • Uses Z-Wave's Scene Command Class
  • Easily replace existing standard switch to add a Z-Wave controlled lighting switch. Compatible with any Z-Wave certified gateway
  • Linear Z-Wave products provide up to 100 feet range between the wireless controller and/or the closest Z-Wave device
  • Linear has been providing best-in-class home & business control solutions for over 50-years and is a leading worldwide mfg.. of Z-Wave products
  • Compatible with incandescent and most dimmable fluorescent, halogen, Xenon and LED fixtures and The wires are pre-cut for easy stripping.


  • Can be combined with a Linear/2gig WT00Z-1 Z-Wave 3-Way Wall Switch to create a virtual multi-way circuit
  • Pair this to the Wink Hub by adding a new product and choosing Lights -> Zwave Light
    • When prompted by the app, double-tap either the top or bottom of the switch paddle.
  • I've had experiences where the App doesn't think the switch was added and times out. If you exit the app and go back in, you should see a new light called "Light" that you can then edit and rename as you see fit.



  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.
