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

Aeotec  Nano Switch is a low-cost Z-Wave Switch specifically used to enable Z-Wave command and control (on/off) of any wall switches. It can report immediate wattage consumption or kWh energy usage over a period of time. In the event of power failure, non-volatile memory retains all programmed information relating to the unit?s operating status.

It can connect to 2 external manual switches to control the load ON/OFF independently. Its surface has a pin socket, which can be used for connecting to the touch panel, so you can also use the touch panel to control the Nano Switch. 

The Nano Switch is also a security Z-Wave device and supports Over The Air (OTA) feature for the products firmware upgrade.

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.

Set Parameter 255

Safety Warning for Mains Powered Devices

ATTENTION: only authorized technicians under consideration of the country-specific installation guidelines/norms may do works with mains power. Prior to the assembly of the product, the voltage network has to be switched off and ensured against re-switching.

Installation


Notes for the wire connection ports:

N ? Power input for neutral
L ? Power input for live
IN ? Input for load power supply
OUT1 ? Output for load 1
OUT2 ? Output for load 2
S1 ? External switch control for load 1
S2 ? External switch control for load 2

1. Shut off the main circuit breaker of your home for safety during the installation and ensure the wires are not short circuited during the installation which will cause damage to the Nano Switch.
Note: Your home?s main circuit breaker must support the overload protection for safety.

2. Preparing connection wires 14 AWG power wires for Input/ Output. 18 AWG copper wires for external manual switch. Use the wire stripper cut the metallic part of the connection wire and make sure the length of the metallic part is about 5mm.
Note: All connection wires needs to be flexible cable.

In some cases, you may have some loads just only can be used on the voltage of DC24V and hope that it still can be controlled by the Nano Switch, so please refer to the following diagram to achieve this:

Note: The ?IN? terminal should be connected to the ?-? of DC 24V input.

Wiring diagram of DC24V power input.

Since the Nano Switch also supports the DC24V power input, so you can use it to control the loads that powered by DC24V.

If the output loads should be only powered by AC120V or AC230V, you can change the wire connection as below:



Note: The ?IN? terminal should be connected to the ?Live? of AC 120V/230V power wire.

All above wiring diagrams show that the Nano Switch uses 2-Way or momentary button switches as the external manual switch for 2-Way connection. The below diagram will show you that the Nano Switch uses the SPDT (Single-Pole Double-Throw) switches as the external manual switch for 3-Way connection.

Wiring diagram of 3-Way connection for the external manual switch.

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

1. Install the device according to the instructions.
2. Press the button 2 times quickly on the Nano Switch.

Exclusion

1. Press the button once on the Dual Nano Switch.

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 5 Z-Wave Plus Lifeline.When the load state of Nano Switch (on/off) is changed, the Hail CC, Switch Multilevel Report and Basic Report (configured by parameter 80) can be sent to the associated nodes in this group.
2 5
Forward the Basic Set, Switch All, Scene Activation Set to associated nodes in Group 2 when the Nano Switch receives the Basic Set, Switch All, Scene Activation Set commands from main controller.
3 5 Send Basic Set (configured by parameter 82) to the associated nodes in Group 3 when the external switch S1 is operated
4 5 Send Basic Set (configured by parameter 82) to the associated nodes in Group 4 when the external switch S2 is operated

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.
