This is a secure HVAC-Thermostat for Europe. To run this device please insert fresh 2 * AA 1,5V batteries. Please make sure the internal battery is fully charged.

- Start Inclusion mode of your primary Z-Wave Controller.
- Press the Boost-Button.
- Spirit Z-Wave Plus will show the assigned NodeID.

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

Spirit Z-Wave Plus is a Z-Wave radio standard compatible energy-saving radiator thermostat.

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.


Mounting the Spirit Z-Wave Plus

After adding the Spirit Z-Wave Plus to a network it is ready to be installed on the radiator. The LCD shows INS. Do not press the boost button yet.

Installation at the radiator without Adapter

Installation at the radiator with Adapter

Mechanical Installation

Press the boost button to start mechanical installation.

Unmounting the Spirit Z-Wave Plus


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.



Product Usage


Boost-Taste Led‘s


Inserting batteries

Remove the battery cover by simply pulling it off. Now insert the batteries. Pay attention to the correct
polarity! At a later battery change, the configuration of your Spirit Z-Wave Plus is maintained.

Setpoint adjustment

The setpoint is adjusted via plus and minus button.
Altering the setpoint locally will set the Spirit Z-Wave Plus in heating mode.
The energy saving setpoint can only be adjusted via Z-Wave.
The configurable setpoint range is 8°C to 28°C.
If the setpoint is increased/decreased above/below the set point limits the
Spirit Z-Wave Plus will change into boost / off –mode.

 Child protection
Press and hold plus and minus button simultaneously for 3 seconds
to enable/disable the child protection.
If the Spirit Z-Wave Plus is set into the highest protection level it is no
longer possible to operate the device locally.
Altering the operating states

Press minus button until OFF is displayed.

Push the boost button.
Alternatively press the plus button until ON is displayed.

If the operating state is not heating mode, pressing the plus or
minus button will bring the device in heating mode.

Window open detection
If the roomtemperature drops the window open detection will trigger.
Spirit Z-Wave Plus will change temporarily in off mode for 15 minutes.
Window open detection will end automatically after 15 minutes and the previously active
operating mode will be restored.
Window open detection can also be canceled by a button press.
The window open detection is disabled during manufacturer specific mode.
The sensitivity oft he window open detection can be configured

Display NodeID
Press and hold the boost button for 3 seconds to display the NodeID.

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 1 Z-Wave Plus 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.

  • Primary Controller — is the central organizer of the network. It must be a controller. There can be only one primary controller in a Z-Wave network.
  • Inclusion — is the process of adding new Z-Wave devices into a network.
  • Exclusion — is the process of removing Z-Wave devices from the network.
  • Association — is a control relationship between a controlling device and a controlled device.
  • Wakeup Notification — is a special wireless message issued by a Z-Wave device to announces that is able to communicate.
  • Node Information Frame — is a special wireless message issued by a Z-Wave device to announce its capabilities and functions.
