Z-Wave is the international wireless protocol for communication in the Smart Home. This device is suited for use in the region mentioned in the Quickstart section.
Z-Wave ensures a reliable communication by reconfirming every message (two-way communication) and every mains powered node can act as a repeater for other nodes (meshed network) in case the receiver is not in direct wireless range of the transmitter.
This device and every other certified Z-Wave device can be used together with any other certified Z-Wave device regardless of brand and origin as long as both are suited for the same frequency range.
If a device supports secure communication it will communicate with other devices secure as long as this device provides the same or a higher level of security. Otherwise it will automatically turn into a lower level of security to maintain backward compatibility.
For more information about Z-Wave technology, devices, white papers etc. please refer to www.z-wave.info.
Please read the user manual before installing the product.
In order to include (add) a Z-Wave device to a network it must be in factory default state. Please make sure to reset the device into factory default. You can do this by performing an Exclusion operation as described below in the manual. Every Z-Wave controller is able to perform this operation however it is recommended to use the primary controller of the previous network to make sure the very device is excluded properly from this network.
This device also allows to be reset without any involvement of a Z-Wave controller. This procedure should only be used when the primary controller is inoperable.
ATTENTION: only authorized technicians under consideration of the country-specific installation guidelines/norms may do works with mains power. Prior to the assembly of the product, the voltage network has to be switched off and ensured against re-switching.
The device can be plugged into every standard power outlet Type F. Thanks to IP44 rating this device can be used in wet environments such as bathrooms or basements and even outdoor. Do not stack the device!
On factory default the device does not belong to any Z-Wave network. The device needs to be added to an existing wireless network to communicate with the devices of this network. This process is called Inclusion.
Devices can also be removed from a network. This process is called Exclusion. Both processes are initiated by the primary controller of the Z-Wave network. This controller is turned into exclusion respective inclusion mode. Inclusion and Exclusion is then performed doing a special manual action right on the device.
The device is able to switch electric loads up to 3500 W and can be switched wirelessly or using the local button. The connected load is measured and reported. Trigger values can define unsolicited power reports. The device includes a virtual circuit breaker. The configuration values 26-28 define the behavior of this function. Depending on the configuration parameter 4 the local button with either control the local load or sends scene activation commands to the central gateway.
Here are a few hints for network installation if things dont work as expected.
This device is capable of receiving a new firmware 'over the air'. The update function needs to be supported by the central controller. Once the controller starts the update process, perform the following action to confirm the firmware update: Single Click the button to confirm the update
Z-Wave devices control other Z-Wave devices. The relationship between one device controlling another device is called association. In order to control a different device, the controlling device needs to maintain a list of devices that will receive controlling commands. These lists are called association groups and they are always related to certain events (e.g. button pressed, sensor triggers, ...). In case the event happens all devices stored in the respective association group will receive the same wireless command wireless command, typically a 'Basic Set' Command.
|Group Number||Maximum Nodes||Description|
|2||5||Control other devices on single click of the button. BASIC command (on/off) is sent according to switching state of the load.|
Z-Wave products are supposed to work out of the box after inclusion, however certain configuration can adapt the function better to user needs or unlock further enhanced features.
IMPORTANT: Controllers may only allow configuring signed values. In order to set values in the range 128 ... 255 the value sent in the application shall be the desired value minus 256. For example: To set a parameter to 200 it may be needed to set a value of 200 minus 256 = minus 56. In case of a two byte value the same logic applies: Values greater than 32768 may needed to be given as negative values too.
Defines when the LED shall shine and how Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 1
|0||LED off, only blinks on traffic|
|1||Defined by Parameter 21 and 22|
Defines if and after which time the device shall turn off without any user interaction Size: 2 Byte, Default Value: 0
|0||no auto off|
|1 - 65535||seconds|
Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 0
|1||Ignores Off command|
|3||Switches on, when receiving off command and current state is off|
This parameter defines if the local button shall control (switch) the load or it is only used to send out scene control commands to the central controller. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 0
|0||Controls Load + Controls Scenes|
|1||Scene Control Only|
Defines the switching status after a power failure or unplugging Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 1
|1||Return to last switching state|
Defines the behavior of the LED when the load is switched off Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 0
Defines the behavior of the LED when the load is switched on Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 2
Report the voltage when the voltage has changed by more then X * 1 V. When disabled the device will report every 10 minutes regardless of current voltage. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 100
|1 - 250||Volt|
Report the current when the current has changed by more then X *0,01 A. When disabled the device will report every 10 minutes regardless of current change. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 10
|1 - 255||* 0,01 A|
Report the power when the power has changed by more then X Watt. When disabled the device will report every 10 minutes regardless of power consumption change. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 50
|1 - 255||W|
When the power draw exceeds the value set in this parameter for a time set in parameter 28 the soft ciruit breaker will disconnect the load. Size: 2 Byte, Default Value: 3600
|1 - 3600||W|
Once the soft circuit breaker tipps and the load is disconnected the load will be automatically reconneced after X seconds. When disabled the load must be repowered manually or with wireless command. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 0
|1 - 255||sec.|
This delay time defines how fast the soft circuit breaker wil react when the threshold power is exceeded. The power is cut off only if the power draw remains over the threshold level for the defines time. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 10
