INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
DI-000-VPI06-02A
WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS:
WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS:
• To be installed and/or used in accordance with appropriate electrical codes and regulations.
• Dimmer may not operate with dioded lamps (Sylvania Designer 16™ or Philips PAR-16™).
• If you are unsure about any part of these instructions, consult a qualified electrician.
• Total minimum load must exceed 40W.
• T
o avoid overheating and possible damage to this device and other equipment, do not install to control a receptacle, fluorescent lighting, a motor- or a transformeroperated appliance.
• Dimmer may feel warm to the touch during normal operation.
• Recommended minimum wall box depth is 2-1/2”.
• Use with incandescent or 120V halogen fixtures only.
• Maximum wire length from dimmer to all installed remotes cannot exceed 300 ft.
• Vizia +™ dimmers are not compatible with standard 3-way or 4-way switches. They must be used with compatible Vizia +™ remotes for multi-location dimming.
• Disconnect power at circuit breaker or fuse when servicing, installing or removing fixture.
• Use only one (1) Vizia +™ dimmer in a multi-location circuit with up to 9 coordinating remotes (without LEDs) or up to 4 matching remotes (with LEDs). The remote(s)
will turn the light on at the brightness level selected at the dimmer.

A-2) The Locator LED will blink 2 times per second to indicate the
device is in Program Mode A-2, Minimum Brightness Level.
The default Minimum Brightness Level is LED 2. To change the
Minimum Brightness Level from 1-50%, use the DIM/BRIGHT
Bar. The light output will reflect the minimum brightness level
selected. By tapping the Push Pad this setting will automatically
be saved and the device will advance to the next programming
mode, A-3.
A-3) The Locator LED will blink 3 times per second to indicate
Program Mode A-3, Preset ON Level. To change the current
Preset ON Level from 1-100%, use the DIM/BRIGHT Bar. If
this feature is not desired, press and hold the left half of the
DIM/BRIGHT Bar (v) until no LED is lit (default setting). By
tapping the Push Pad this setting will automatically be saved and
the device will advance to the next programming mode, A-4.
A-4) The Locator LED will blink 4 times per second to indicate
Program Mode A-4, Almost OFF Level. To change the current
Almost OFF Level, use the DIM/BRIGHT Bar to adjust the
preset light level. If this feature is not desired, press and hold
the right half of the DIM/BRIGHT Bar (^) until no LED is lit
(default setting). Almost OFF can be overridden by pressing
and holding the left half of the DIM/BRIGHT Bar (v). By tapping
the Push Pad this setting will automatically be saved and the
device will exit Programming Mode A.
NOTE: When Almost OFF Level is set the LED Locator will be
illuminated when the dimmer is in the Almost OFF state, even though
the light remains on.
