Essential Info

If you don't need X10 control but appreciate the appearance of Decora® switches, you can install the Pilot Light Decora-Style Switch, a 15-amp 120/277-volt single-pole AC switch. This quiet rocker paddle switch has a lighted handle that illuminates when the load is on.

What's Included

  • Leviton Pilot Light Decora-Style Wall Switch - White
  • Mounting screws
  • More Info

    The Pilot Light Decora-Style Switch's border shields against dust and fits securely in a wall plate to prevent rocker binding. The switch comes with both Quickwire push-to-fit easy wire terminals and screw-down side terminals that accept both solid and stranded wire to ease installation.

    This residential-grade, non-grounding switch has a full-rated current capacity with tungsten, fluorescent or resistive loads.

    The switch's rocker paddle is illuminated when the load is on. A switch is also available that lights up when the load is off for easy locating in a dark room. The Leviton Pilot Light Decora-Style Wall Switch is also available in ivory.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED -- miami, Florida   6/26/2014
    I just bought three of these - and NONE of them illuminate! Not even a tiny glow - That is 00 % DEFECTIVE rate! Do not waste your money on theses.... I would give it NEGATIVE Stars if that was an option!
    CHARLES -- salt lake city, UT   3/27/2014
    Needed to have an indoor indicator that an outdoor light was on. This switch did the job and was an easy installation.
    AMBROSE -- charlotte, NC   2/27/2014
    Just follow the instructions in the box (5 stars if you do). Instructions on-line are poor. If you wire this correctly, it will work perfectly: Green Screw to Ground wire, Black Screw to Hot/Black wire from Circuit Breaker panel, Brass Screw to Load/Black wire to the light, Silver Screw to the White/Neutral wire connected to both the light and the Circuit Breaker panel. Nice way to make sure your attic or garage light doesn't stay on for a month.
    RICH -- sequim, WA   9/15/2011
    doesn't work
    LINDA -- chicago, IL   6/12/2011
    It was what I needed but I wish the light was a little brighter.
    JONATHAN -- fairfield, CT   2/17/2011
    The illuminated portion of the switch is only a fraction of the top segment (say 60%) and it's a bit dimmer than I had hoped. Aside from that, it performs well.
    EUGENE -- princeton junction, NJ   1/3/2011
    I bought 2 of these. One works, the other does not.
    TOM -- bristol, IL   9/9/2010
    It worked just as described, and the price was the best I found.
    RICHARD -- great neck, NY   10/31/2009
    Good products-Instruction not clear- but doable. Have a nice day Richard
    SAM A. -- shoreline, WA   4/15/2009
    This is a rare beast -- an illuminated switch that lights when the switch is ON, rather than when the switch is OFF. It's perfect for when there is a light in a closet or pantry with the switch on the outside. The glowing switch acts as a reminder that the light is on in the closet -- it could otherwise be left on for days! Installing it is about the same as any other light switch.
    yak -- long island, NY   3/21/2009
    Is attractive and works; Agree w/others, click is louder than the basic decora switch it replaced, and the pilot light is not very bright. It doesn't draw attention to itself and you have to look directly at it to determine if the light is on.
    BRIAN -- tonawanda, NY   3/30/2008
    I installed this switch, and it does light up when it is in the On position, but it is not nearly as bright as I thought it would be. I don't get any direct sunlight in my bathroom, but even with indirect light filtered through a curtain & two shower curtains, the light is very difficult to see. And if the light above the sink is on, you can't see this switch's light at all. I bought this switch to control my exhaust fan because it is very quiet, and sometimes it was left on for hours. As far as I'm concerened, this switch is only mediocre, at best and not worth the $18 that I spent to buy it & have it shipped to me.
    JIM -- placentia, CA   12/10/2007
    The pilot light does not light, even after double checking connections. Either the light is defective, or the switch is defective. It needs to be returned for credit.
    CRISTIAN -- redmond, WA   8/19/2007
    Good quality.
    JOEL -- minneapolis, MN   2/23/2007
    very nice product
    GORDON -- monrovia, CA   11/19/2005
    just what I needed :)
