Quickstart

This is a Measuring Sensor Device for Europe. Please make sure the internal battery is fully charged.

AFit the two supplied AA batteries. The battery compartment is marked with a plus and minus sign. Ensure that each battery is correctly aligned. The SES 302 will now power up.

On successful inclusion the LED will flash 2 times. The total process can take up to 20 seconds; refer to the ?Radio? section for details. If the LED flashes 4-times this means that the inclusion process has failed, so try moving the SES 302 to another position and repeat the Inclusion steps. If the inclusion process fails again, the device may be already included in another network. So first exclude and then include the device. The controller will show when the inclusion/ Exclusion operation is successful.

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.

Product Description

The SES302 sensor is powered from 2 AA batteries and it is Z-Wave Plus certified. In addition to the standard functionality it also supports one of the following optional configurations:

This unit is ideal for temperature measurement for smart central heating controls or any other similar application. Its user interface is straightforward and with a push button and LED indication on back side, one can easily include/exclude this to a Z-Wave network.

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.

Installation

Keep the SES 302 in its sealed pack until all dust and debris have been cleared away prior to making connections. Remove the wall plate from the rear of the SES 302.

Choose the position where the unit is to be mounted (refer to the following layout). Avoid locations alongside or behind large metal surfaces that could interfere with the low power radio signals between the unit and the controller. The sensor should be mounted on an internal wall, approximately 1.5 metres (5 feet) above floor level and away from draughts, direct heat sources and sunlight. Make sure that there is sufficient space around the unit to allow easy access to the two retaining spring clips on the base of the wall plate. It may be necessary to move the sensor around to ensure good communication. Do not attempt to mount it on the wall until it has been included on the network.

Inclusion/Exclusion

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.

Inclusion

To include or exclude the device simply follow the following steps:

On successful inclusion the LED will flash 2 times. The total process can take up to 20 seconds; refer to the ?Radio? section for details. If the LED flashes 4-times this means that the inclusion process has failed, so try moving the SES 302/SES 303 to another position and repeat the Inclusion steps. If the inclusion process fails again, the device may be already included in another network. So first exclude and then include the device. The controller will show when the inclusion/ Exclusion operation is successful.

If the LED flashes 4-times this means that the inclusion process has failed, so try moving the SES 302/SES 303 to another position and repeat the Inclusion steps. If the inclusion process fails again, the device may be already included in another network. So first exclude and then include the device. The controller will show when the inclusion/ Exclusion operation is successful.

Product Usage

The association process is applicable only after the device is included into network. Please note that some controllers can automatically associate. Always check with the manufacturer?s manual.

RF communication check after installation Press button for less than 1 second. The SES 302 will send temperature report of onboard sensor. Note: this feature only works when the device has been included in network and the nodes associated. Sending Node Information- Press and hold SES 302 button for more than 1 second and then release.

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 2 Lifeline

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.
