This is a Remote or “Slave” Switch which talks to any of the “Master” ControlSCAPE Receiver Switches (600W, 1000W, 1500W, 2400W, 300W ELV, 500W ELV). It allows any of the system Switches to be turned into 3-way, 4-way, 5-way, etc. circuits. In any application where there is more than one switch that controls a load a single Master switch is installed and then Remote Switches are installed in the remainder of the switch locations.
For example, if a chandelier which hangs in a stairwell has switches to turn it on and off at both the bottom and the top of the stairs (3-way circuit), this setup would require 1 Master Switch and 1 Remote Switch. If the same chandelier were controlled both from the top and bottom of the stairs as well as from a 3rd location in the hall (4-way circuit), this setup would require 1 Master Switch and 2 Remote Switches.
Note that Remote Switches do not switch the hot on and off. They simply transmit On/Off/Brighten/Dim signals to the Master Switches which then perform the requested operation (Masters are always installed at the location of the load wire, not necessarily at the location of the hot).
