I currently have 4 traditional switches (1 dimmer, 3 remote) control ceiling lights in a hallway, using  A - D to represent junction boxes as follows:

  • A: 3 way switch
  • A -> B: 3 wire romex
  • B: 4 way switch
  • B -> C: 3 wire romex
  • C: 4 way switch + power line from panel (2 wire romex)
  • C -> D: 3 wire romex
  • D: 3 way (dimmer) + light line (2 wire romex)

I want to change them to smart switches. I bought 1 Leviton DZ6HD Zwave Dimmer, and 3 matching dimmer remote DD00R-DLZ. But I don't know how to wire them, the manual diagram is for the case that the power line goes into one of the ending 3 way switch, but mine goes into the middle 4 way switch (C). 

What's the correct wiring for my case?

The power and neutral go to all the smart switches.

The master must be at the box which has the branch to the light.

I am not at all sure that the Leviton supports multiple remotes. But if it does, you'll need to allocate all the /3 wires as follows:

  • Black = always-hot
  • White = neutral
  • Red = Yellow/Red data line
