Zooz VER. 2.0 / 3.0 switches are compatible with 5-ways in certain conditions.

Check out the attached diagram illustrating the 5-way. Here are some things to note:

  • A 5-way is what we call 4-point control so 4 different switches controlling the same set of lights.
  • You have to have load and line in the same switch box to install Zooz Ver 2.0 / 3.0 in a 5-way. If you have line and load separated between two boxes, there is no way to wire the Zooz switch with the other 3 existing switches.
  • If you have load and line in separate boxes, look into our new S2 switches. Zooz S2 switches have an new wiring schematic that allow you to use the switches in 4 and 5-ways where load and line are separated. Here's more about wiring S2 switches in 5-ways (NOTE: the wiring for S2 switches is different than V2/V3 switches. Do not try to wire S2 switches and V2/V3 switches the same way).
  • Depending on the type of 4-way switches you have, you may have to rewire the middle 4-way switches where 2 black wires are on one side and 2 white wires are on the other side (rather than being across from each other).
  • The diagrams show all connections but ground (the ground wire was excluded in order to simplify the illustrations).
  • Colors and location of the common screw on the 3-way switches are just for illustration and will not always match your set-up so please don't follow the colors or screw orientation blindly.
  • Use only simple on/off switches without LED indicators when wiring them with Zooz Z-Wave switches (no dimmers!).
  • All boxes need to be rewired.

If you have any doubts about your set up or the installation process, hold on there! Don't connect any wires without 100% certainty of the process. Let us know if you have any questions about the installation. We'll be happy to help.
