Kinda relate, anyone know if the add-on switches need a master switch or will they pair with any other Zigbee / Z-Wave hub? https://www.lowes.com/pd/GE-Z-Wav...h/50282365

The add-on switch requires one of the above switches to work. They are for 3 way and 4 way use.

No they will not pair, they require a master switch. My understanding is the add-on just sends a signal to the master which communicates with the hub.

You must use the add on switches with a master switch. The add on switches do not physically contain the actual "switch" part of the circuit. They simply send a signal to the primary switch to activate its internal relay.

This is why the primary switch *must* be placed in the junction box where the line *and* load leads are located.

When you install these switches you need to wrap your head around the fact that they don't work like conventional 3-ways and therefore the same wiring logic doesn't apply. Despite the fairly good included instructions, it took me a while to understand what was going on initially.

Correct. I have 3 switches for my kitchen. One is the actual $40 switch and the others are the cheaper add-on switches. All they do is like he said, tell the main switch to shut things off. I originally bought 3 switches then realized you can only use 1 and the other 2 need to be add-ons.
