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
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
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
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 2530%.
• 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

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
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
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
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
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
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:
It will respond to ALL ON and the ALL OFF command (default).
It will not respond to ALL ON or ALL OFF commands.
It 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™ Devices
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.
