If replacing an existing 3 way switch with this unit, it will only work correctly on that switch side (pilot on when room light is on). The other switch yields the opposite result when operated (pilot off when room light is on). The switch has two wires (black and white) sticking out of the backside that are not visible on product images. White wire is connected to neutral wire in box (neutral connection requirement is mentioned in product information). Its the black wire connection that requires a special configuration. I contacted Leviton and was told that I needed to run another black wire from the 1203-PLC black wire to the common terminal on the opposite switch. That means that this switch requires SIX wires to connect: The two travelers, the common terminal, a neutral wire, a ground wire AND a separate black wire to connect the switch black wire to the common terminal of the opposite switch. This would be fine for new construction when running an additional wire is a simple...
Like some others have said, there are several ways a 3-way circuit can be wired, and this switch is not compatible with all of them, even some of the most common. I purchased this switch to replace a cheaper switch by Pass and Seymour that the LED light had burned out in after several years. That light switch worked just as it was supposed to on my very common, simple 3-way circuit. I found this Leviton switch above and thought since it cost about 3 times as much, it must be better. Well I lost that bet. This switch was not compatible with the same circuit. So, I will be returning this switch and ordering another one of the much cheaper switches by Pass and Seymour. It's a shame because this feels like a heavy duty, quality switch that would last for many years.
We purchased the toggle pilot switch after we repeatedly left an intermittently used outdoor light fixture on, without realizing it. At times for days. Finally decided on this switch, which was priced at $31.35 at the time. While the installation instructions that came with the switch were rather rudimentary for a layperson / hobby electrician, a bit of online research quickly provided the necessary directions. Once familiar with the required wiring, the actual installation took little time. The switch has a solid feel to it (am no expert and thus can’t illustrate that statement with supporting facts) and functions exactly as intended. The pilot light will illuminate and thus alert us when the outside sconce is illuminated.
