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
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

This product combines a certified smoke detector, which can also function individually, with a plug-in Z-Wave radio module. The smoke detector is certified by the VdS according to DIN EN 14604 and thus meets all legal requirements. The high-quality smoke chamber is made of stainless steel and special antistatic plastic.
A button on the instrument allows the smoke chamber, electronics and battery to be tested. In addition, automatic self-tests are integrated in the instrument to make a test with special aerosol unnecessary. The battery warning is emitted for at least 30 days and the warning indicator remains fully functional during this time.
The Z-Wave radio module makes it possible to transmit the smoke alarm to a central Z-Wave controller. The warning detector can still be used as a Z-Wave siren. An acoustic tone is switched on and off by radio. The radio module either uses the warning detectors built-in 9V battery or can alternatively be powered by an external 12V power supply unit - which can be installed in a flush-mounted box.
In accordance with the 3515 standard (smoke detectors with radio communication) this device will automatically forward all alarms to all other radio detectors in the Z-Wave network so that an alarm is transmitted throughout the house (must be activated via configuration parameter). This radio communication between the smoke detectors works automatically and without further configuration. The smoke detectors can communicate with each other and with the radio control centre via a specially encrypted protocol to prevent manipulation.
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.
Press the button on the bottom of the device for at least 10 seconds
Safety Warning for Batteries
The product contains batteries. Please remove the batteries when the device is not used.
Do not mix batteries of different charging level or different brands.
Please refer to the installation guide of the smoke sensor for information about how and where the smoke sensor should be installed. The installation guide complies with the norm DIN EN 14676.
- Remove the bracket from the detector main unit by rotating it counter-clockwise.
- Place the bracket where you are going to install the detector. In each of keyhole slots, draw a mark to locate plastic anchor and screw. Using a 3/16-inch (5mm) drill bit, drills two holes at the marks and insert plastic anchor, and attached the bracket by using the screws.
- Open the battery compartment (1) to activate the battery, and then close the cover.
- The optional external power supply will connect to the connector (5). The internal battery must stay inside the detector even when the external power supply is connected.
- Mount the smoke detector to the mounting ring. Make sure the hooks of the detector are placed between the hook and the twist stopper (2) of the mounting base (arrows in image above). Then turn about 15 % clockwise. (Hint. If the detector hook is not placed right between the two mounting ring structures the detector cant be mounted to the ring).
Please follow the recommendations about amount as position of the sensor in your home as given above. Avoid to place the sensor into the angle of walls, prefer positions in the middle of the room.
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.
1. Insert the battery.
2. Press the button on the circuit board once.
1. Press the button on the circuit board once.
If the smoke detector detects smoke, the siren will sound, the red LED will flash and a signal will be sent to the Z-Wave controller and all other smoke detectors in the network. If the battery is running low, the smoke detector will beep briefly several times a day for 30 days.
Note: All communication of the wireless module is carried out at the application level, provided that the device is included in "Secure" mode and all other communication partners also support secure transmission. If it is communicating with a device that does not support secure transmission, it will be switched to an unsecure connection for communication with that device. This process takes about 20 seconds and is performed the first time communication is established.
The siren can also be used for other alarms. Therefore it is displayed as a switch in the user interface of the controller. Switching on in the user interface starts the siren while switching off stops the siren. The generated alarm has the same effect as the real alarm.
Automatic radio meshing of the smoke detectors
Thanks to Z-Wave, the smoke detectors automatically communicate with each other in the same Z-Wave network (if the function is activated via the configuration parameters). In the event of an alarm (battery low or smoke), the corresponding detector sends encrypted messages (command alarm version 2 within a package of the command class Security) to all other detectors within radio range. These in turn send the signal to detectors that have not yet received the alarm signal. In this way, all detectors in the radio network are reached and can warn of the danger.
It is possible to deactivate the alarm on all smoke detectors to which the alarm is sent, but not on the triggering smoke detector. To do this, you must find and eliminate the cause of the alarm.
Note: For networking several smoke detectors, all of them must be taught-in once to a Z-Wave controller so that they are all in one network. This type of networking is not suitable for larger numbers (>3) of smoke detectors. Please use a logical link via the central controller and switch off automatic networking with configuration parameters 5 and 6.
Operation with power supply unit
The additionally available power supply unit supplies the Z-Wave wireless module with power. This significantly extends the battery life in the detector.
Please note that the detector itself will continue to function only with the battery. The siren function is also powered by the battery.
The status of the battery is not displayed and sent to the controller for technical reasons. There is only a battery warning which is audible for at least 30 days by a short beep.
Node Information Frame
The Node Information Frame (NIF) is the business card of a Z-Wave device. It contains
information about the device type and the technical capabilities. The inclusion and
exclusion of the device is confirmed by sending out a Node Information Frame.
Beside this it may be needed for certain network operations to send out a Node
Information Frame. To issue a NIF execute the following action:
A simple click on the button (3) sends a NIF.
Quick trouble shooting
Here are a few hints for network installation if things dont work as expected.
- Make sure a device is in factory reset state before including. In doubt exclude before include.
- If inclusion still fails, check if both devices use the same frequency.
- Remove all dead devices from associations. Otherwise you will see severe delays.
- Never use sleeping battery devices without a central controller.
- Dont poll FLIRS devices.
- 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:
Press the Button 2x short to confirm the 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.
||Switching Command when Alarm
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
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.
