Question about Leviton DHC Remote Control System Remote Control

Open Question

I bought a house with Leviton 6400 and 6450 controllers and can not figure out how they work or what their purpose is. I cannot turn on outdoor flood lamps on one side of the house and cannot turn off out door flood lamps on the other side.

Lights turning on


Try changing the code in both switches to the next available number. Some one nearby may have set their lights to work off the same code and thus activating yours as well. As to replacements, just google cat# 6319-2. lots of options.

Clarify: One switch controls 2 outdoor lights.
One turns on-off with switch.
Other stays ON all the time.
If this is not what you mean, then add a comment.

Might have a nail in a wire.

This is absolute fire hazard.
Notify contractor, call electrician.
We used to do siding, and put nails in water pipes and AC tubes.

Problem would probably be located near light that stays ON.

I have a Leviton 5634 two rocker switch that I'm using to replace an old double switch that controls two lights. There are 1 black, 1 red, and 1 white wire in the light switch box. The white wire is...


Review old switches:
Two old switches > each has 2 wires
Old switch 1 > Red and White
Old switch 2 > Black and White
The same white wire connects to both switches, so effectively they count as 1 wire
This means you have 3 wires ... 1 White, 1 Red, 1 Black
Each switch controls a separate load (light, fan, motor)

New Leviton double-rocker switch:
-Leviton has 2 Brass-colored screws on one side, and these screws are connected together by a brass plate >> your Hot wire will connect to brass screw
-Leviton has 2 Silver-colored screws on other side, and neither of these screws are connected in any way >> the wires going to each load will connect on a different screw on this side of switch.

Hot wire: Each box in your house has exactly 1 hot wire that is connected back to breaker box. This is true for all boxes (excluding boxes that have a 3-way & 4-way switches).
We need to identify Hot wire.

-By code the Hot wire is black for identification purposes ... but your box sounds like maybe the Hot wire is White.
-If your Hot wire is white, that is NOT an immediate safety issue ... it will not cause a fire or malfunction ... it is a code violation ... because code requires things be uniform so next electrician knows what previous guy did. So some day, electrician working outside grabs wrong color wire, and wow. I say this so you know.

Moving on.

Identify Hot wire:
-Pull 3 wires up so they can be tested
-Turn on power
-Use ordinary tester, or old lamp with plug cut off and wires stripped back
-Tape tester lead to sticks so hands are away from voltage
-Power is on. Don't stand in water or touch metal pipes, and you're fine.
-You have 3 wires in box + ground wire
-Test all 3 wires to bare ground wire >> when tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... testing is complete

Connect wires to Leviton double-rocker:
-Power is OFF.
-You have 3 wires - 1 White, 1 Black, 1 Red >> one is Hot wire, the other two wires go to load
-Hot wire connects to Brass-colored screws on new Leviton.
-Brass colored screws are connected together by a brass plate so the Hot does not need to connect to both brass screws.
-The other two wires connect to Silver screws on other side of new Leviton switch
-One wire goes to each silver screw
-Connect bare ground wire to green screw.
-Push wires back into box. Use eraser end of pencil if needed.
-Make sure ground wire is back and away from screws on switch
-That's it.

I want to use an X-10 Pro appliance module outside, in an outlet that has a Leviton outdoor covered electrical outlet cover. The appliance module does not fit even with the cover completely open. Is it...


Instead of trying to put your appliance module outside, and risk it getting wet, why not add another outlet inside the house, near the existing outdoor outlet, or anywhere along the path of the existing wire that feeds that outlet. Re-route the wires that were going to the outdoor outlet to this new outlet instead. Then plug the appliance module into the new outlet, and plug into that a new wire leading to the existing outdoor outlet. If you are really lucky, there will be enough slack wire so that you can cut the wire going to the outlet and insert the new outlet in-between. In any case, you will need to put a plug on the wire feeding the outdoor outlet. Work safe, don't forget to turn off the breaker first! Good luck.

Sounds like the relay in motion sensor. Change the bulb. Rechargeable batteries are no good after 3-4 years also.

How does it work?


By decreasing or increasing the RMS voltage and hence the mean power to the lamp it is possible to vary the intensity of the light output. Although variable-voltage devices are used for various purposes, the term dimmer is generally reserved for those intended to control lighting.
