Operating the device

Powering modes

External supply mode

In external supply mode, the device indicates commands status and can receive indications from the Z-Wave controller (using Indicator CC), including Identification.
Device configuration is updated immediately.
To enable the external supply mode, make sure that the external supply is connected and powered, then add the device to the Z-Wave network (remove beforehand if already added).

Battery mode

In battery mode, the device indicates commands status, but cannot receive indications from the Z-Wave controller (using Indicator CC), except for Identification.
The device needs to be woken up to change its configuration.
The battery level (in percent) is measured during every power-up and periodically every 24h, the measured value is reported to the controller during every power-up and when it changes by at least 5%.
To enable the battery mode, make sure that the device is powered only using the battery, then add the device to the Z-Wave network (remove beforehand if already added).

Temperature sensor

The device is equipped with a built-in temperature sensor. It measures the ambient temperature and reports it to the controller only when it changes by at least 0.1°C, but not more often than every 10 minutes. It is recommended to use battery or 12V DC power supply for reliable temperature measurement.

Configuration

Associations

Association (linking devices) – direct control of other devices within the Z-Wave system network.

Associations allow:

  • reporting the device status to the Z-Wave controller (using Lifeline group),
  • creating simple automations by controlling other devices without participation of the main controller (using groups assigned to actions on the device).

The device provides the association of 7 groups:

1st association group – “Lifeline” reports the device status and allows for assigning single device only (main controller by default).

2nd association group –  “On/Off (1)” is used to turn the associated devices on/off.

3rd association group – “Dimmer (1)” is used to change level of associated devices.

4th association group –  “On/Off (2)” is used to turn the associated devices on/off.

5th association group – “Dimmer (2)” is used to change level of associated devices.

6th association group – “Multidevice” is used to control different type of devices.

7th association group – “Slats” is used to move slats of venetian blinds.

The device allows to control 5 regular or multichannel devices per an association group, with the exception of “LifeLine” that is reserved solely for the controller and hence only 1 node can be assigned.
