14 seconds until the LED flashes orange and red and quickly flashes green. Now that the app knows which device we would like to connect first, we can open the

available Wi-Fi networks. This will establish a temporary
communication network with the device. Once you have selected the Leviton
device, return to the My Leviton app and continue setup. You can hit continue and continue. Next, select the home’s Wi-Fi network

  1. have problem in step 3. My Leviton app recognizers numerous networks in my neighborhood, but fails the be recognized by my router. I have other devices connected to the router (Echo, MAC computer, iPhones ,I Pads) all recognized by the router. Pleas help. Would much rather connect the Leviton wall switch then send it back for another brand name switch>
