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.
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.
Here are a few hints for network installation if things dont work as expected.
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|
|1||8||All nodes in this group will receive a BASIC_SET frame when light is set to a certain state with the button of the Plug-in Dimmer (manual switching).|
|2||1||The node associated in this group will receive a unsolicited SWITCH_MULTILEVEL_REPORT frame every time the level of light is changed, where the value represents the (changed) dim level. The status is reported after every change that means manual but also if changed by Z-Wave.|
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.
Set all config values to default values (factory settings). Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 0
This parameter is used to enable the dimming option of the product. When disabled the dimming and fading routine are disabled. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 2
|1 - 255||Dimming enabled|
The maximum powerload when light is turned on, when measured higher then this value the Plugin Dimmer automatically stops with dimming or is turned off. Size: 2 Byte, Default Value: 125
|25 - 150||Value in watts|
The speed of dimming when activated (manual and RF) Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 3
|1 - 255||Dim speed is 1% per configuration value (* 10 ms)|
The speed of fading up when light is switched on (manual and RF) Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 1
|1 - 255||Fade speed is 1% per value (* 10 ms)|
A percentage that a energy value must be different compared to a previous sent value before a unsolicited meter report is sent. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 1
|1 - 100||A value in %.|
A watt value that a energy value must be different compared to a previous sent value before a unsolicited meter report is sent Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 5
|5 - 150||A value in watt.|
A time value that has to be passed compared to a previous sent value before a unsolicited meter report is sent Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 10
|10 - 255||A value in seconds|
What to do with lamp status when power applied Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 0
|0||Always switch light off when power applied|
|1||Switch lamp on/off depending on last known lampstatus before power was disconnected.|
The speed of fading down when activated (manual and RF) Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 1
|1 - 255||Fade speed is 1% per value (* 10 ms)|
