Wire illumino Wall Switch.


There are 2 methods to wiring illumino Wall Switch. You can view their direct instructions and videos at the links below:



Before you wire.

  1. Life saving: Shut off electricity at the circuit breaker. If installed in a multi-switch box, turn off all circuits. Confirm power is off using a voltage tester to check the live wires and terminals for power. 
  2. Detach any existing light switch you are replacing.
  3. Wire your Wall Switch using the diagram that follows as it befits your installation.

    Note: When wiring, make sure that you pull all wire ends into the holes rather than around the screws.


    Note: Ground wire is not used in any of the diagrams below; be sure to safely cap them in your gangbox.


Single pole wiring.



3-way wiring.



4-way wiring.



Finalize your wiring.


4. Make sure all screws are tightened.

5. Fit Wall Switch within the wall box, affix it in place, and then install any face plate as needed.

Removing your illumino Wall Switch.


Your Smart Switch can be removed from your Z-Wave network at any time. You’ll need to use your Z-Wave network’s main controller to do this.


Using your existing Z-Wave Controller:


1. Set your Z-Wave Controller into 'Remove Device' / 'Unpair Device' mode. Refer to the Controller's manual if you are unsure of how to perform this step.

2. Tap top or bottom switch 3x times within 2 seconds on illumino Wall Switch. The LED will blink purple to indicate it is attempting to remove itself. 

  • If successful, the LED will fade in and out to indicate it is ready to be connected to a new hub.



Reset your illumino Wall Switch.

Make sure the product is powered. If not, plug it into a wall socket and power on. To complete the reset process manually: 

  1. Press and hold the Action Button for at least 20 seconds once the LED lights up as a solid blue color.
  2. Release the button, the LED will remain solid blue for 2 seconds.
  3. Quickly tap the button once while the LED is blue.
  4. The LED indicator will fade its LED in and out slowly; this indicates the reset operation is successful.
