What are Z-Wave parameters?

What are Z-Wave parameters?

Many Z wave devices have “configuration parameters” which let you do a one time set up of the device. For lighting, this is typically things like the rate at which a dimmable light fades to off, whether the Indicator LED is on when the light is on or on when the light is off, etc.

How do you set Z-Wave parameters?

Z-Wave Tweaker parameter settings Print

  1. Click on My Locations and then select your gateway.
  2. Select “My Device Handlers” then click on “Add new Device Handler”
  3. Select “From Code”
  4. Paste this into your SmartThings IDE.
  5. Select Save.
  6. Then click on Publish -> “Publish for me”

What is Z-Wave range?

While Z-Wave has a range of 100 meters or 328 feet in open air, building materials reduce that range, it is recommended to have a Z-Wave device roughly every 30 feet, or closer for maximum efficiency. The Z-Wave signal can hop roughly 600 feet, and Z-Wave networks can be linked together for even larger deployments.

What frequency do Z-Wave devices use?

908.42 MHz
Z-Wave is a wireless radio frequency technology which operates at 908.42 MHz (in the US & Canada) that lets smart devices talk to and connect with one another.

How do I turn off the blue light on my GE smart switch?

If you go to the smart things app on your phone, go to the switch in question, hit the little gear icon in the upper right hand corner, then you have the options on what to do with the blue light. I have it set to be on when the lights are on.

How do I increase my Z-Wave range?

How can I improve my Z-Wave network coverage?

  1. Make sure your Z-Wave controller is placed centrally in your home.
  2. Use Plugged-In Z-Wave Devices Everywhere.
  3. Migrate to Z-Wave Plus Devices.
  4. Avoid Walls, Corners, and Tight Spaces.
  5. Avoid Aquariums, Plumbing, and Appliances.

What is the range of Z-Wave plus?

Z-Wave Plus v2 compatible devices include extended wireless range up to 2600 ft/800 m, three layers of encryption, faster operation, and longer battery life.

Is Z-Wave 2.4 GHz?

ZigBee uses the widely populated 2.4-GHz ISM band, which it must share with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other radios that can produce interference. Most ZigBee devices have co-existence features that help mitigate interference, yet the potential is greater in the 2.4-GHz band than the 908.42-MHz channel of Z-Wave.

What is the frequency rate of Z-Wave in GHz?

Zigbee uses the global standard 2.4GHz ISM frequency band, whereas Z-Wave uses the 915 MHz ISM band (in the U.S.) and the 868 MHz RFID band (in Europe).

How do you reset a GE Z-wave switch?

Reset to factory default This procedure should only be used when the primary controller is inoperable. 1. Quickly press ON (up) 3 times then immediately press the OFF (Down) button 3 times. Note: This should only be used in the event your networks primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable.

Does Z-Wave go through walls?

Z-Wave devices in a Vera system have a range of about 330-feet (100-meters) when used outdoors with no obstructions. When Z-Wave signals pass through walls or large obstacles, there is resistance, reducing the range.

What can interfere with Z-Wave signal?

Brick, tile, and concrete walls will block the Z-Wave signal more than walls made of wooden studs or drywall.

What is difference between Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus?

Differences between Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus Z Wave Plus has extended device communication range. The new Z Wave protocol extends communication between devices from 40 feet to about 60 feet. Z Wave Plus devices are smaller which require less power to operate.
