How do I get the non load bearing switch to link with the load bearing one?

If the question is regarding a 3-way switch, some Z-wave alarm panels have issues pairing an accessory switch so we typically recommend using an Aeon Labs Minimote to associate the LTM-5 to the other devices you would like it to control. Here is some more information:

You don’t wire the two switches like a typical 3 way circuit.

You wire either an LSM-15 (On/Off) or LRM-AS (Dimmer) to control the load.

You then place an LTM-5 accessory switch at the other switch location and wire it as constant power (no traveler wire).

You would then associate the LTM-5 to talk wirelessly to the LSM-15 or LRM-AS to close the Three-Way Circuit.

The Aeon Labs Minimote would do the association for you. The Minimote is a handheld Z-Wave programmer and you can use it for all future installs.

Do the LTM-5 switches need to be included into the Z-Wave network by your primary controller? I'm having trouble having them respond to both add and removal commands from a 2GIG panel.
