Leviton WSS0S-P0W LevNet RF Wireless Self-Powered Single-Push Remote Switch, Whi
Leviton WSS0S-P0W LevNet RF Wireless Self-Powered Single-Push Remote Switch, Whi

Pros: - Installs easily as a surface mount item anywhere. In our case we used molly bolts and mounted it to sheetrock adjacent to other switches. - Provides a remote an on/off signal when paired with WSS10-0DW. - Can be installed nearly anywhere so long as it remains within signal range of paired switch (WSS10-0DW) - In our case, enabled us to add this switch in the garage to toggle lights powered through a switch (WSS10-0DW) installed in the Kitchen. Essentially, we achieved a three-way switch solution in our home without adding any wiring! And, when we want to turn on the backyard lights from the garage we don't have to go into the kitchen.

Cons: - Installation HW isn't comprehensive. To get a secure installation in sheetrock required 2 molly bolts not provided. - Once installed as a surface mount item it protrudes a small distance from the wall (<1") rather than sitting flush as a normal switch plate would. - Leviton's documentation isn't completely clear on whether the switch combination (this item + WSS10-0DW) will work as a three-way, but it does. - Designed, priced, packaged and documented as a professional item; not yet developed as an every-home solution.

Overall Review: When my wife requested that I add a switch for the backyard lights to our garage I knew there was no way I was pulling the wires necessary for a three-way. After a few hours research I found this solution (this item + WSS10-0DW). With about 1.5 hours installation and programming time we had exactly what we wanted.

Cons: - Required a small amount of time to understand the programming (~15 minutes). - Leviton's documentation isn't completely clear on whether the switch combination (this item + WSS0S-P0W) will work as a three-way, but it does. - Designed, priced, packaged and documented as a professional item; not yet developed as an every-home solution.
