I bought a kwikset electronic deadbolt that speaks Z wave. I have the module as well, but not connected yet. I am wanting to replace an existing 3 way switch with a Z Wave switch. Which one is the correct one to buy? The one I have now shows screws for:

Hot wire
Load wire
Traveler

I assume I have the right switch and the load is the other traveler. I called technical support and asked them why they don't have a place for another traveler instead of a load. Anyways, I have it working, but the other 3 way and 4 way will turn off the lights and when you go to turn them back on, the lights are dimmed. they will brighten if you go back to the Z Wave dimmer and turn them up.

Unlock The Possibilities
Lock and unlock doors from anywhere: control your lock from anywhere on your smart phone, tablet, or internet connected device.
Get notified when someone enters your home: receive notifications when your loved ones arrive home safely, or monitor people going in and out of your home.
Control when others have access to your home: do you have a contractor coming tomorrow at 9am, or a housekeeper that comes Tuesdays between 10am-12pm? You can assign a specific code and create a schedule that only allows entry to your home during those times.
Be prepared for life's unplanned moments: no matter where you are - work, vacation, or on the road, if something goes wrong in your home, you can remotely provide temporary access to those who need it.
