Assuming you got the additional info I typed on first question, you have a basic idea of my panel setup. With the power off, I isolated a ground wire for my new leviton switch, joined a white pigtail to my neutral wire bundle which was capped off so that I could have that ready for the new switch. I cut the load wire and detached the line wire from the screw on the original switch and removed it. I then stripped off a cm from the end of the load wire to have it ready. I took the line wire, cut it and attached it with a wago line connector to 3 pigtail black solid copper and connected each switch via one of the pigtails. In the end, all switches work except for leviton z-wave which stays permanently on???

Hello , welcome to JA/ Pearl, my name is***** , and I will try to answer your electrical question today !

the z wave smart switch is this model ?:

Please forgive me, but I'm a little confused as to what you are trying to do, it sounds like you have a bank of 4 switches you want to remote control with your Z wave switch as an automated master control , is this correct ? Reading your information it seems these are all single pole light switches including the Zwave ?
