Z-Wave Top Level Menu

This menu will change depending on how the ISY is made part of the Z-Wave™ network. For example, Learn Mode is not available if the ISY is the SIS and the network is not empty. There is also a Controller Shift option that is only made available when there is no SIS in the Z-Wave network and the ISY is the Primary Controller.

Add a Z-Wave Device

Z-Wave Add Node

  1. Select Z-Wave | Add a Z-Wave Device and wait for a popup window to appear.
    • If the popup window does not appear, Select Z-Wave | Advanced | Stop Adding or Removing a Z-Wave Device then try again.
  2. Put the Z-Wave device you are adding into learn Mode. Refer to the user guide for your product on how to do this. In many cases this just requires you to press a button on the device.
  3. The ISY will begin adding the device (this may occur a few seconds after you put the device into learn mode).
    • The popup window will go away and you will see your device added to the tree.

Note: To add a device, it must not already be in a Z-Wave network. Therefore, if you are having trouble adding a device try removing it first.

Remove a Z-Wave Device

Z-Wave Remove Node

  1. Select Z-Wave | Remove a Z-Wave Device and wait for a popup window to appear.
    • If the popup window does not appear, Select Z-Wave | Advanced | Stop Adding or Removing a Z-Wave Device then try again.
  2. Put the Z-Wave device into learn Mode. Refer to the user guide for your product on how to do this. In many cases this just requires you to press a button on the device.
  3. The ISY will remove the device (this may occur a few seconds after you put the device intolearn mode).
    • The popup window will go away and the nodes for the device will be removed from the tree.

Learn Mode

Learn Mode is used to Add the ISY to a Z-Wave Network, Remove the ISY from a Z-Wave Network, or update its information when already part of a Z-Wave network. When in Learn Mode, it is up to the other controller to determine which action is taken.

Z-Wave Learn Mode

  1. Select Z-Wave | Learn Mode and wait for a popup window to appear.
    • If the popup window does not appear, Select Z-Wave | Advanced | Stop Adding or Removing a Z-Wave Device then try again.
  2. The ISY will now wait to receive information from another Z-Wave device performing an action such as Add, Remove, etc.
    • The popup window will go away when the operation is complete.
    • In some cases this may take 30 to 60 seconds or longer to complete.

Note: Learn Mode is only available if the Z-Wave network is empty or the ISY is not the SIS for the Z-Wave network.

Synchronize Nodes

Synchronizes nodes and other information in the ISY for a Z-Wave device with the actual device information retrieved from the Z-Wave dongle and the device itself.

New & Deleted
Synchronizes devices that either do not exist in the ISY yet, or, exist in the ISY but no longer exist in the Z-Wave network.
All
Synchronizes all devices in the Z-Wave network

Options

  1. Z-Wave | Options | Allow secure devices to be added allows the user to prevent devices from being added using S0 security.
  2. Z-Wave | Options | Use Network Wide Search when adding or removing Z-Wave devices (NWI/NWE) to enable or disable NWI/NWE when adding or removing devices.
  3. Z-Wave | Options | Automatically put battery devices back to sleep allows the user to keep battery devices awake when they would normally be put back to sleep.
  4. Z-Wave | Options | Freeze ISY Nodes allows the user to prevent the automatic creation of additional ISY Z-Wave nodes. This option is automatically turned off when adding a device.

Advanced | Stop Adding or Removing a Device

Stops any Add/Remove device command currently running in the Z-Wave dongle.

Advanced | Factory Reset Z-Wave dongle

Factory resets the Z-Wave dongle (not the entire ISY). When the Z-Wave dongle in the ISY is factory reset it is given a new Home Id and new S0 security keys are generated.

If this controller is the primary controller for your network, resetting it will result in the nodes in your network being orphaned and it will be necessary after the reset to exclude and re-include all of the nodes in the network. If this controller is being used as a secondary controller in the network, use this procedure to reset this controller only in the event that the network primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable.

Advanced | Z-Wave Information

Provides some low-level Z-Wave network information generally regarding the ISY's participation in the Z-Wave network.

Backup

Backup the Z-Wave dongle into the Z-Wave dongle backup file in the ISY. Whenever you do a backup, the existing backup file is overwritten.

To back up the ISY and the Z-Wave dongle, you first backup the Z-Wave dongle, and then backup the ISY. The Z-Wave dongle backup file is stored as just another file inside the ISY backup zip file.

Restore

Restore the Z-Wave dongle using the Z-Wave dongle backup file in the ISY. When the ISY itself is restored, the Z-Wave dongle backup file is also restored from that backup.

Z-Wave Version

Shows the Z-Wave version and library being used by the Z-Wave dongle.
