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.

Calibration 

Calibration is a process during which a device learns the position of the limit switches and a motor characteristic.

Calibration is mandatory in order for the device to correctly recognize a roller blind position.

The procedure consists of an automatic, full movement between the limit switches (up, down, and up again).

Note: If you notice the calibration process fail (e.g. it does not start, movement times are really short or highly inaccurate), adjust parameter 155 value (e.g. reduce it by half).

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.

Inclusion

Quickly, triple click the S1 switch.

Exclusion

Quickly, triple click the S1 switch.

Product Usage

Range test

To make Z-Wave range test possible, the device must be added to the Z-Wave controller. Testing may stress the network, so it is recommended to perform the test only in special cases.

The device has a built in Z-Wave network main controller’s range tester.

Follow the below instructions to test the main controller’s range:

  1. Switch off the mains voltage (disable the fuse).
  2. Remove the device from the wall switch box.
  3. Switch on the mains voltage.
  4. Press and hold the B-button to enter the menu.
  5. Wait for the visual LED indicator to glow violet.
  6. Quickly release and click the B-button again.
  7. Visual indicator will indicate the Z-Wave network’s range (range signalling modes described below).
  8. To exit Z-Wave range test, click the B-button.

 Note: Communication mode of the device may switch between direct and one using routing, especially if the device is on the limit of the direct range.

Z-Wave range tester signaling modes:

Visual indicator pulsing green – the device attempts to establish a direct communication with the main controller. If a direct communication attempt fails, the device will try to establish a routed communication, through other modules, which will be signalled by visual indicator pulsing yellow.

Visual indicator glowing green – the device communicates with the main controller directly.

Visual indicator pulsing yellow – the device tries to establish a routed communication with the main controller through other modules (repeaters).

Visual indicator glowing yellow – the device communicates with the main controller through the other modules. After 2 seconds the device will retry to establish a direct communication with the main controller, which will be signalled with visual indicator pulsing green.

Visual indicator pulsing violet – the device does communicate at the maximum distance of the Z-Wave network. If connection proves successful it will be confirmed with a yellow glow. It’s not recommended to use the device at the range limit.

Visual indicator glowing red – the device is not able to connect to the main controller directly or through another Z-Wave network device (repeater).

 Menu

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

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 1 Lifeline
2 5 Roller Shutter
3 5 Slats position control

Configuration Parameters

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.
