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.

The Popp 10-Year Smoke Sensor consists of two parts: (1) a stand-alone smoke detector head that does not only fully comply to the European regulation EN15406 but to the much more advanced guideline vfdb 14-01. This means that the device – among others – ensures a 10 year battery life of the internal battery, is more resistive against mechanical stress and extreme temperature changes, and it is manufactured according to the advanced manufacturing standard UPC-2. (2) a wireless communication module, that has its own separate and replaceable battery. This module fits into the module bay of the smoke detector head and establishes a communication link to a central Z-Wave gateway reporting its battery status and of course any alarm condition. The module is certified according to the Z-Wave Plus guidelines. Additional functionality of this high end smoke detector includes periodic automated self test, dust compensation and special functions for sleeping rooms (no blinking) and easiness of use (large button for testing to be operated by a simple broom stick). Furthermore the device can be used also as an independent indoor siren within the Z-Wave network. Connected to different sensors via control center it will alarm in case of detected flood or burglary additionally to smoke or fire alarm. Yon don’t need to install another stand-alone siren.
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.
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.
To reset the device keep the button pushed for 10 seconds. After 5 seconds the led starts flashing and after another 5 seconds there is a short beep signaling the successful reset back to factory defaults. Use this procedure only when the network primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable.
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.
Please refer to the installation guide of the smoke sensor for information about how and where the smoke sensor should be installed. The installation guide complies with the norm DIN EN 14676.
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.
In case smoke is detected by the smoke detector the device will sound and the wireless module will issue a Z-Wave alarm command to the main controller and other associated devices. A low battery of the wireless module will be reported by the wireless module. Please note that the battery level of the main detector is not reported since this battery can’t be replaced anyway. The end-of-life indicator serves the same purpose. Outside Inside 3 Note: All communication of the wireless module is performed with application level security if the device was included securely and all communication partners support secure communication as well. In case a non-secure device is associated for switching on smoke alarm, the smoke detector will detect this and change its communication style with this very device to non-secure. This process happens one time and will take about 20 seconds. This delay will happen on first communication only.
Alarm Messages The device will issue the following (unsolicited) alarm messages:
The Node Information Frame (NIF) is the business card of a Z-Wave device. It contains information about the device type and the technical capabilities. The inclusion and exclusion of the device is confirmed by sending out a Node Information Frame. Beside this it may be needed for certain network operations to send out a Node Information Frame. To issue a NIF execute the following action: A single click on the button will send out a NIF.
Here are a few hints for network installation if things dont work as expected.
This device is capable of receiving a new firmware 'over the air'. The update function needs to be supported by the central controller. Once the controller starts the update process, perform the following action to confirm the firmware update: Once the firmware update process has started double click the Z-Wave button to confirm firmware update process.
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.
|Group Number||Maximum Nodes||Description|
|1||10||Z-Wave Plus Lifeline|
|2||10||Alarm Reports. All devices in this group will receive Alarm notifications (Smoke , Battery Low, Tamper)|
|3||10||Switching Command. All devices in this group will receive a BASIC SET command on Smoke Alarms. Configuration parameter 3 and 4 will define the command value sent on alarm and alarm clearance.|
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.
This value is sent as BASIC Set to Association Group 3 when an Smoke Alarm occurs. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 99
|0 - 99||BASIC Set Command|
|255||BASIC Set Command|
This value is sent as BASIC Set to Association Group 3 when an Smoke Alarm is cleared. Size: 1 Byte, Default Value: 99
