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.

Product Description

The DUWI Remote Control controls Z-Wave actuators such as dimmers, switches, thermostats or motor controls for blinds or jalousies. Devices can be turned on and off but dimmers and motor controls can also be turned into a desired dimming level to motor position by keeping a button pushed and releasing it. Additionally the device can act as a primary controller of a Z-Wave network using three dedicated network control buttons located behind a sliding cover. 10 pair of buttons - illuminated by blue light when operated - allow to control up to 7 control groups (association groups) and 3 scenes. The scenes learn the desired status of selected actuators and can turn them back into this status just hitting a button. The devices in the 7 control groups a re always switched simultaneously. The remote control can operate as a secondary control beside an IP-Gateway however it is not possible from this device to activate scenes defined in the IP-Gateway. All scenes and control groups are stored within the remote control and they are also conveniently programmed using the buttons of the remote rather than using wireless commands from an IP-Gateway.

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.

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.


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.


For including the remote control as a secondary controller into an existing the Z-Wave network do the following steps:

Product Usage

The DÜWI Remote Control can either built and manage its own Z-Wave network or work together with a IP-Gateway in one common network. It has 10 different button groups to control 10 different devices or groups of devices.

As Single Controller

All Z-Wave devices are connected to the remote control with two steps:

  1. Include device into Z-Wave: Triple-Click the ,Incl."-button on the backside of the device (LED will blink green), then confirm the Inclusion on the new device. (This is usually done by a single or triple click of a button on this device. Please consult the devices manual for more information about this process. As a result of this confirmation the device sends out a Node Information Frame NIF.)
  2. Keep ,Assoc."-button pressed for 2 seconds until LED blinks green; now hit one button of the button group you want to new device be controlled from; finally confirm by issuing a Node Information Frame NIF from this device (consult manual for information how to do this).
  3. A convenient way to combine (1) and (2) is to triple click one of the buttons of the group the new device shall be controlled from; then confirm on the device - done!

Each button of the button group has different functions:

,On" - short click: turn on device(s)

,On" - pushed: dim up light or wind up jalousie until button is released

,Off" - short click: turn off device(s)

,Off" - pushed: dim down light or wind down jalousie until button is released

Status: Call the status of the device controlled. Blue LED indicated "on", red LED indicates "off". A blinking LED indicated that different devices controlled by this button group have different switching states.

Specialty of the Scene-Groups

The three scene button groups allow individually assigning switching states of the devices controlled by this groups. This means that one device may dim to a certain level, another device is turned off and one other device is turned on - all by hitting one single button (the normal groups only allow to simultaneously control device). Assign the device to this group and make sure you leave it in the desired state after sending out the NIF.

The button group ,All On/Off" turns on or off all those actuators supporting this function and being configured accordingly. The configuration is usually done using an IP Gateway.

Together with an IP-Gateway

The remote control can both be included by an IP-Gateway as secondary controller or it can include an IP- Gateway (or any other Z-Wave controller) as secondary controller remaining the primary controller of the network. As a primary controller the DÜWI remote can still be used to include further devices.

Being included by an IP-Gateway causes two possible pit falls:

The inclusion of the remote into an IP-Gateway is initiated by the IP-Gateway. It needs to be turned into inclusion mode. Pushing "Incl." for 2 second confirms the inclusion process and turns the remote control into a secondary controller of the IP-Gateway. The IP-Gateway will show the remote control as a new device but will not offer any further functions. All management of button groups etc. is still done using the buttons of the remote control!

Trigger Scenes in an IP-Gateway

This remote control is no dedicated scene controller for IP-Gateways. Nevertheless it is possible to trigger scenes in the Gateway in a limited way. The IP gateway can be associated to a button group the very same way as any other device (The IP Gateway needs to provide a way to issue a Node Information Frame for this.). The remote control will now send the values 0xff (On button) and 0x00 (Off button) to the IP-Gateway that can be used to activate scenes in this IP-Gateway. Please refer to the manual of the IP-Gateway how to set scene triggers. Some IP-Gateways may try to wirelessly configure the remote control to perform this step. This will fail but the scene triggering still works. The scene values are independent of the group and assigning the IP-Gateway to another group will result in sending the very same values and subsequently triggering the very same scenes.


Communication to a Sleeping device (Wakeup)

This device is battery operated and turned into deep sleep state most of the time to save battery life time. Communication with the device is limited. In order to communicate with the device, a static controller C is needed in the network. This controller will maintain a mailbox for the battery operated devices and store commands that can not be received during deep sleep state. Without such a controller, communication may become impossible and/or the battery life time is significantly decreased.

This device will wakeup regularly and announce the wakeup state by sending out a so called Wakeup Notification. The controller can then empty the mailbox. Therefore, the device needs to be configured with the desired wakeup interval and the node ID of the controller. If the device was included by a static controller this controller will usually perform all necessary configurations. The wakeup interval is a tradeoff between maximal battery life time and the desired responses of the device. To wakeup the device please perform the following action:

Pressing the "INCL." button for 2 seconds will wake up the device.

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

Special Operations as Z-Wave Controller

As long as this device is not included into a Z-Wave network of a different controller it is able to manage its own Z-Wave network as primary controller. As a primary controller the device can include and exclude other devices in its own network, manage associations, and reorganize the network in case of problems. The following controller functions are supported:

Inclusion of other devices

Communication between two Z-Wave devices only works if both belong to the same wireless network. Joining a network is called inclusion and is initiated by a controller. The controller needs to be turned into the inclusion mode. Once in this inclusion mode the other device needs to confirm the inclusion - typically by pressing a button.

If current primary controller in your network is in special SIS mode this and any other secondary controller can also include and exclude devices.

To become primary a contoller have to be resetted and then include a device.

For Inclusion of Z-Wave devices into the remote controls network do the following steps:

  • Press 3 times the "Inclusion" button on the backside of the device.
  • Confirm by pressing the dedicated button on the target (send NIF).

Exclusion of other devices

The primary controller can exclude devices from the Z-Wave network. During exclusion the relationship between the device and the network of this controller is terminated. No communication between the device and other devices still in the network can happen after a successful exclusion. The controller needs to be turned into the exclusion mode. Once in this exclusion mode the other device needs to confirm the exclusion - typically by pressing a button.

Attention: Removing a device from the network means that it is turned back into factory default status. This process can also exclude devices from it's previous network.

For Exclusion of Z-Wave devices from the remote controls network do the following steps:

  • Press and hold the "Exclusion" button on the backside of the device for 2 seconds.
  • Confirm by pressing the dedicated button on the target (send NIF).

Management of Association in the controller

Setting Associations:

For assigning devices to a button group do the following steps:

  • Press and hold "Assoc." button for 2 seconds.
  • Press "On" button of the group to which the device should be assigned.
  • Send out a NIF with the device which should be assigned.

Removing Associations:

For removing an assigned device from a button group do the following steps:

  • Press and hold "Assoc." button for 2 seconds.
  • Press "Off" button of the group from which the device should be removed.
  • Send out a NIF with the device which should be removed.
