Wireless Lighting Control

On/Off Relay Switch and 3-Way Switch Kit


Thank you for your purchase of a JASCO Z-Wave® control device.

Z-Wave technology is designed to automate lighting/home control and provide easy remote operation of all your Z-Wave enabled devices. The JASCO Z-Wave product family includes a variety of devices to control lighting in your home. It is up to you whether you want to control one room or your entire house and whether you want to do it all now or start with one room and add more over time.

This switch is one component of a Z-Wave® control system and is designed to work with all other Z-Wave enabled devices in a home control network. It will also act as a wireless repeater to insure that commands intended for another device in the network are received, thereby extending the range of the wireless controller.

Z-Wave devices of other types and brands can be added to the system and will also act as range extenders if they support this function of repeating the signal received to other nodes in the system.


This device is intended for installation in accordance with the National Electric Code and local regulations in the United

States, or the Canadian Electrical Code and local regulations in

Canada. If you are unsure or uncomfortable about performing this installation consult a qualified electrician.

This switch is designed for use only with permanently installed fixtures. The device controlled by this Z-Wave switch must not exceed 960 watts (Incandescent); 15 Amps, 1800W (Resistive); or ½ HP (Motor).


Z-Wave enabled devices should never be used to supply power to or control the On/Off status of medical and/or life support equipment!

There are no user serviceable parts in this unit.





Controlling Appliances:

Exercise extreme caution when using Z-Wave devices to control appliances. Operation of the Z-Wave device may be in a different room than the controlled appliance, also an unintentional activation may occur if the wrong button on the remote is pressed. Z-Wave devices may automatically be powered on due to timed event programming. Depending upon the appliance, these unattended or unintentional operations could possibly result in a hazardous condition.

For these reasons, we recommend the following:

1. Assign Z-Wave controlled appliances to device numbers 10 – 18 on the JASCO remote. The likelihood of unintentionally turning on the appliance will be reduced significantly because the “Shift” button will need to be pressed before pressing device numbers 10-18.

2. Z-Wave devices controlling appliances should be removed from “All” control setting. Instructions on how to do this are included in the manual for your JASCO remote.

3. Do Not include Z-Wave devices in Groups or Scenes if they control appliances.

4. Do Not use Z-Wave devices to control electric heaters or any other appliances which may present a hazardous condition due to unattended or unintentional or automatic power on control.

5. Double check programs for accuracy before using them.


This device complies with the Z-Wave standard of open-air, line of sight transmission distances of 65 feet. Actual performance in a home depends on the number of walls between the remote controller and the destination device, the type of construction and the number of Z-Wave enabled devices installed in the control network. Most Z-Wave devices act as signal repeaters and multiple devices result in more possible transmission routes which helps eliminate “RF dead-spots”.

Things to consider regarding RF range:

• Each wall or obstacle (i.e.: refrigerator, big screen TV, etc.) between the remote or Z-Wave device and the destination device will reduce the maximum range by approximately 25-


• Brick, tile or concrete walls block more of the RF signal than walls made of wooden studs and plasterboard (drywall).

• Wall mounted Z-Wave devices installed in metal junction boxes may suffer a significant loss of range (approximately

20%) since the metal box blocks a large part of the RF signal.

Note: The distances shown in the table below are typical examples.

Actual performance in your home will vary.

Please Note: Z-Wave home control networks are designed to work properly alongside 802.11 wireless computer networks,

Bluetooth and other 2.4GHz or 5.8GHz devices. Some baby cams, wireless video devices and older cordless phones using the 900MHz frequency range may cause interference and limit

Z-Wave functionality. Many 900MHz products have a switch to select channel “A” or “B”. You may find that one of these channels will cause less interference than the other.


The term “3-way circuit” refers to a circuit with two switches and one load (light) like you find at the top and bottom of a stairway.

There are many ways to physically wire a 3-way circuit and it is important to understand how the circuit you wish to upgrade to

Z-Wave control is wired. Below is a description of a typical 3-way circuit.

One of the ways to wire a two-switch/one-load circuit is to route the incoming power through the first switch, then to the second switch and then to the load. Although very common and by no means a standard, it is the easiest to convert to Z-Wave control. With this type of circuit, Switch 1 is replaced by the Z-Wave auxiliary switch and Switch 2 is replaced with the primary Z-Wave switch. The auxiliary switch does not actually control the power; instead, it sends a momentary voltage signal through the traveler wire to the primary switch which in turn, controls the power to the load.

Typical 3-way circuit:

Switch 1

Switch 2

Please consult an electrician if you have trouble identifying the type of wiring circuit you wish to convert or if you do not feel confident in your ability to convert the circuit to Z-Wave control.


This switch may be used in new installations or to replace an existing wall switch. It may be used by itself for 2-way control (one switch & one load), with one 45610 Auxiliary Switch for 3-way control (two switches & one load) or with two 45610 Auxiliary switches for 4-way control (three switches & one load). When used by itself for 2-way control, please make sure that the screw terminal for the traveler wire is insulated (Do Not Remove the tape over the terminal if you are not using the traveler connection).

Turn OFF the power to the branch circuit for the switch and lighting fixture at the service panel. All wiring connections must be made with the POWER OFF to avoid personal injury and/or damage to the switch.

1. Shut off power to the circuit at fuse box or circuit breaker.

2. Remove wall plate.

! Warning: Verify power is OFF to switch box before continuing.

3. Remove the switch mounting screws.

4. Carefully remove the switch from the switch box. DO NOT disconnect the wires.

5. There are five screw terminals on the 45609 switch; these are marked LINE (Hot), Neutral, LOAD, GROUND and

TRAVELER. The Traveler terminal is only used for 3-way or

4-way wiring and should remain insulated if the 45609 is being installed in a 2-way system (one switch & one load).

Match these screw terminals to the wires connected to the existing switch. (Do Not remove the tape over the terminal if you are not using the traveler connection).

6. Disconnect the wires from the existing switch.

7. Connect the green or bare copper ground wire to the

GROUND terminal.

8. Connect the black wire that goes to the light to the terminal marked LOAD.

9. Connect the black wire that comes from the electrical service panel (Hot) to the terminal marked LINE.

10. Connect the white wire to the neutral terminal.

Note: UL specifies that the tightening torque for the screws is 14Kgf-cm.

11. OPTIONAL for 3 or 4-way control): Connect the Traveler wire (usually Red) to the screw terminal marked TRAVELER.

The other end of this Traveler wire connects to the

TRAVELER screw terminal on the 45610 Auxiliary Switch.

See the following section for information about wiring the

45610 Auxiliary Switch.

12. Insert Z-Wave Switch into the switch box being careful not to pinch or crush wires.

13. Secure the switch to the box using the supplied screws.

14. Mount the wall plate.

15. Reapply power to the circuit at fuse box or circuit breaker and test the system.

Optional for 3 or 4-Way Control:

1. The 45610 requires the following 3 wiring connections: a. The Traveler wire. This is used to send voltage signals to the primary Z-Wave switch. The signals tell the Z-wave switch what action to perform. b. Ground.

c. Neutral.

2. DO NOT connect the 45610 auxiliary switch to the home’s black Hot (Line) wire.

Observe Important Wiring Information

Important: This switch is rated for and intended to only be used with copper wire.

The home’s electrical wires may be attached to the screw terminals or inserted into the holes in the back of the switch enclosure and clamped in place by tightening the screw terminals. Always follow the recommended wire strip lengths when making wiring connections.

Wire gauge requirements

• Use 14 AWG or larger wires suitable for at least 80° for supply (HOT), Load, Neutral and Traveler connections.

• Use 12 AWG or larger wires suitable for 80° for ground connection.

Wire strip length:

• For attachment to screw terminals: Strip insulation 5/8”.

• For attachment using the enclosure’s holes: Strip insulation


You should now be able to use the rocker to manually turn On/

Off the connected load.

Use your primary controller to include the switch in the home control network after the switch is wired as shown in the above diagram. It can then be added to groups and/or lighting scenes and managed remotely to control the On/Off status of the connected lighting.

Air Gap Switch

The 45609 has an air gap switch on the lower left side (see diagram for location) to completely disconnect power to the load. Pull the air gap switch OUT to disconnect the power while replacing light bulbs and push it all the way back in for normal operation. The air gap switch must be all the way in for the switch to function and control the lighting.

Key Features

• Remote On/Off control via the Z-Wave controller/network

• Manual On/Off control with the front panel rocker

• LED indicates switch location in a dark room


Remote Control

JASCO Z-Wave remotes provide control of an Individual device,

Groups of devices and Scenes. Other brands of Z-Wave Certified remotes may not offer as much flexibility in how you can set up your lighting control network. Please refer to your remote control’s instructions for details on its capabilities and instructions for adding and controlling devices.

Manual Control

The 45609 switch allows the user to:

Turn ON/OFF the connected lighting.

• To turn the connected lighting ON: Tap the top of the rocker.

• To turn the connected lighting OFF: Tap the bottom of the rocker.

Program your Light Switch (Include or exclude the switch to/from the Z-Wave home control network.)

• Refer to the instructions for your primary controller to access the network setup function and include or exclude devices.

• When prompted by your primary controller, tap the top or bottom of the rocker.

• The primary controller should indicate that the action was successful. If the controller indicates the action was unsuccessful, please repeat the procedure.

• Once the switch is part of the network, the same basic procedure is used to add the switch to groups & scenes or change advanced functions. Refer to the primary controller’s instructions for details.

Please Note: After a power failure, the 45609 switch returns to the last used state.


The following Advanced Operation parameters require that you have an advanced controller like the JASCO model 45601 LCD remote. Advanced remotes from other manufacturers may also be able to change these settings; however, basic remotes do not have this capability.

All On/All Off

Depending upon your primary controller, the 45609 switch can be set to respond to ALL ON and ALL OFF commands in up to four different ways. Some controllers may not be able to change the response from its default setting. Please refer to your controller’s instructions for information on whether or not it supports the configuration function and if so, how to change this setting.

The four possible responses are:


will respond to ALL ON and the ALL OFF command (default).

It will not respond to ALL ON or ALL OFF commands.


will respond to the ALL OFF command but will not respond to the ALL ON command.

It will respond to the ALL ON command but will not respond to the ALL OFF command.

LED Light

When shipped from the factory, the LED is set to turn ON when the connected light is turned OFF. This is the default setting and can be changed if your primary controller supports the node configuration function. To make the LED turn ON when the light is turned

ON, change parameter 3’s value to “1”. To turn the LED OFF at all times, change parameter 3’s value to 2.

• Parameter No: 3

• Length: 1 Byte

• Valid Values = 0, 1 or 2 (default 0)

Invert Switch

If the switch is accidentally installed upside down with “On” at the bottom and “Off” at the top, the default On/Off rocker settings can be reversed by changing parameter 4’s value to “1”.

• Parameter No: 4

• Length: 1 Byte

• Valid Values = 0 or 1 (default 0)

Restoring Factory Defaults

All Configuration Parameters can all be restored to their factory default settings by using your primary controller to delete/reset the device.

Interoperability with Z-Wave


A Z-Wave™ network can integrate devices of various classes, and these devices can be made by different manufacturers. Although every Z-Wave certified product is designed to work with all other Z-Wave certified products, your controller must include the appropriate device classifications in order to control non-lighting

Z-wave devices. As an example, the JASCO 45600 basic remote is designed only for controlling Z-Wave devices using the lighting control classification. The JASCO 45601 deluxe remote with LCD readout can control other Z-Wave certified devices like thermostats as well as lighting.
