Smart speakers are NOT Z-Wave hubs so they won't work directly with any Z-Wave devices. But you can use a compatible Z-Wave hub with smart speaker integration to control your dimmer with voice control. These include the Fibaro hubs, Hubitat, SmartThings, Vera, and Wink.

Easy to install, works great with Home Assistant, and tons of configuration if you want to adjust it.
This is a great way to make a ceiling fan z-wave and gain a flexible button controller in the process. Works well with Hubitat using the available driver. Some reviews have complained about the size of the receiver module but it is basically the same size and shape used by all the fan manufacturers for their own remote-control units and works the same way, sliding between the arms of a standard fan bracket. That isn't always easy -- Inovelli's instructions admit that the module fits "snuggly" -- but isn't a special Inovelli problem.
I wanted this switch to provide separate smart control for both the light and fan and I specifically wanted z-wave. I don’t like the idea of having smart home devices on WiFi. This device paired easily with my VeraPlus z-wave controller. And it works well and gives full functionality on Home Assistant.
Exactly what I was looking for: a fan and light control in one decorator switch that pairs with my Zwave controller. Installation was easy with provided instructions. Take your time and think through the wiring. For example I had a separate fan and light load wire running from switches on the wall to the fan. My original fan "load" wire was black, and became the new "hot" wire to the fan module. Pairing was easy though I needed to use a generic setup with my particular controller and relabel the devices that showed up. Overall, a great product.
This is a great switch to replace the Hampton Bay Fan controller, but it wasn't what I thought it was. I thought this would be like Red series dimmer with added fan controller. This switch will just handle the light on the fan itself. None of my fans have lights. I was hoping to replace one of my red series dimmer with this and give me the option to control both my lights and fan. Hopefully Next version you can do that.
I have 3 of these in my house. I installed ceiling fans in all 3 bedrooms in my house, and these switches let me control the lights and fans independently without having to run new wiring. They work great with the latest Home Assistant ZWaveJS stuff (as of May 2021). My one complaint is that there is about a 1.5 second delay from when you hit the button to turn on the light, and when the light actually turns on (my guess is that this is to accommodate the double and triple tap actions). Once you get used to it, it's not too bad. But at first it was pretty annoying. By default, it fades the light on and off, which makes it even slower. But there is an option to disable that. The LED strips by the buttons are fun; my kids liked customizing them to their favorite colors.
It is a tricky getting the unit installed in the fan cover, but than that it has worked like a dream.
I replaced a couple existing fans and their setup with these LZW36's, the wiring and replacement process was clear and straightforward. Devices work well and extensive customization options available using Hubitat. The community and support is excellent and I've already purchased another for the remaining fan in my house.
While there are many alternative and cheaper fan/light combo switches on the market, this is the only one I found that would work for the unfortunate situation where you have only one load wire from the ceiling fan running to a single wall switch. Installation and wiring were very easy, but finding a place to mount the fan module was challenging in my ceiling fan canopy. Mine didn't fit inside the fan bracket, so i had to ziptie it to the outside of the bracket in a janky way--it barely fit inside the canopy enclosure. My only negative feedback (athough not enough to deduct a star) is the included wallplate is too small and the zipties are too short. The supplied wallplate is "standard" size, but unless you're installing these before drywalling, you probably can only use "preferred" or "oversized" wall plates on your switches because the builder likely cut too big of a hole around the electrical box for the wallplate to hide the gaps. While it's certainly a nice touch to include a wallplate, I imagine most people will end up not using it due to the small size--I would suggest bundling with "preferred" size or larger, or not doing it at all. As for the zipties, I found the included ones to be too short for my mounting application, and I ended up needing to use 12" zipties that I had. Perhaps the included zipties would be sufficient if you have a wide and immaculately cleaned up canopy. Otherwise, I'm very satisfied with the switch's performance and functionality.
