ClareVue Lighting Accessory Switch and Dimmer Release Notes


For information on Z-Wave and ClareHome, see Installing Z-Wave with ClareHome.


  • When installing Z-Wave devices, ensure that there is nothing inhibiting their signal. Z-Wave relies on radio signals. Metal or thick walls may limit their signal strength.
  • We recommend having 2 or more repeating Z-Wave devices.


The ClareVue Lighting Accessory Switches and Accessory Dimmers integrate with ClareHome via the Z-Wave network. Installers only need to pair (add) the switch or dimmer into ClareHome, and then customize the device.

By integrating the accessory switches and dimmers into the ClareHome control system, your customers can control the associated lights from their Android or iOS devices.

Only qualified installation technicians should install ClareVue lighting devices. Follow the installation and programming instructions that came with your ClareVue lighting devices.
