What is Z-Wave?

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.

Product Description

This is a plug switch that can be placed between a wall outlet for type F plugs and electric devices, plugged in by cord. It can switch all loads up to 3500 W. The device is IP 20 rated and can therefore only be used in dry environments. Switching is controlled wirelessly using Z-Wave or locally applying a button. A multi color LED indicates the switching status and the assignment of the colors to the switching status can be defined by the user. The device will report any change of the switching status to a central gateway regardless the origin of the switch (local or wireless). A built in virtual power meter will report the power consumption of the load attached. However the user must configure the assumed constant power draw of the load. The local button can control the local load but can also be used to control other functions in a Z-Wave network. The device is certified and tested against all important European Safety Regulations and fully complies with the Z-Wave Plus standard. The device supports secure communication and the firmware can be upgraded over the air (OTA).

Prepare for Installation / Reset

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.

Reset to factory default

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.

Keeping the button pressed for 5 seconds will enter the configuration menu. A blinking blue LED indicates that this
menu was entered. Short click of the button will change the configuration option and a long (min. 2 seconds) click
confirms the selection.
The following options are supported:

• Red: Local reset

Safety Warning for Mains Powered Devices

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.


Just plug the device into a standard type F outlet.


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.

Product Usage

The device is able to switch electric loads up to 3500 W and can be switched wirelessly or using the local button. 

Local Operation 
The local button allows to switch the device. A short press on the button toggles the switch. If it is in ON state the button turns off and respective in OFF state the button turns on. Automated Switch-Off Function (deactivated as default) If activated the switch will turn off automatically after a defined time. This function is particularly useful if the switch is turned on using a motion detector of any other type of sensor. In this case it is possible to further define the reaction of the switch on certain signals sent from a sensor. This allows a very flexible application of the plug switch outside the house.

Quick trouble shooting

Here are a few hints for network installation if things dont work as expected.

  1. Make sure a device is in factory reset state before including. In doubt exclude before include.
  2. If inclusion still fails, check if both devices use the same frequency.
  3. Remove all dead devices from associations. Otherwise you will see severe delays.
  4. Never use sleeping battery devices without a central controller.
  5. Dont poll FLIRS devices.
  6. Make sure to have enough mains powered device to benefit from the meshing

Firmware-Update over the Air

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:

Keeping the button pressed for 5 seconds will enter the configuration menu. A blinking blue LED indicates that this
menu was entered. Short click of the button will change the configuration option and a long (min. 2 seconds) click
confirms the selection.
The following options are supported:

• Blue: Confirm firmware update

Association - one device controls an other device

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.

Association Groups:

Group Number Maximum Nodes Description
1 14 Lifeline
2 14 Control
