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.

Product Description

The HomeTec Z-Wave wireless door lock actuator is a system designed for retrofitting to doors that open inwards to provide motorized locking and unlocking functions. The door can be electronically operated using local buttons and any Z-Wave device capable to control door locks. For the wireless door lock actuator to work, the cylinder must project 7-12 mm on the inside of the door (plus the thickness of the fitting or collar). Because the actuator operates with a key permanently inserted in the lock, the cylinder must have an emergency feature where the door can be opened with a key from the outside even when another key is inserted on the inside. In addition, the door lock must be a profile cylinder compliant with DIN 18252. This device is security enabled Z-Wave Plus product that is able to use encrypted Z-Wave Plus messages to communicate to other security enabled Z-Wave Plus products. This device must be used in conjunction with a Security Enabled Z-Wave Controller in order to fully utilize all implemented functions.

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.

All settings are deleted. Configuration parameters are NOT reset to default values. The user must explicitly reset them

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.


A particular plus point is that the device can be built in without needing to use a special cylinder. So you can integrate it into an existing locking system. The only requirement is that the door cylinder must be a cylinder with an emergency and danger function. This function is extremely important. As it ensures that you can unlock your front door with your normal house key when required. In addition, there should be a cylinder projection of at least 7 to max. 12 millimeters on the inside so that the HomeTec Pro can be built in quickly without any problems.

Enable Fallback to S0 Security

The device will not allow legacy security S0 on default. If you like to operate the device with a controller not supporting S2 security you need to enable fallback into S0.

Physical installation on the door

more information from ABUS Hometec original manual.


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.


Clicking the "unlock button, when Learn Mode is started, will terminate the inclusion mode and also the management mode.


Clicking the "unlock" button, when Learn Mode is started, will terminate the exclusion mode and also the management mode.

Product Usage

This door lock can be operated by a central Z-Wave enabled controller (using e.g. mobile phone), a dedicated Z-Wave remote control and from local buttons. Once installed. The Home Tec can turn the door lock to open and close. In parallel legacy operation using a key from the outside remains possible. The local buttons "door open" and
"door close". accessible from the inside allows convenient locking and unlocking the key. It is possible to just close the door and really lock it up moving the deadbolt into the "close" position. 

The device sends the following notifications to the central controller: The Door Lock supports the following Door Lock Command Class modes:
The Door Lock supports the following Door Lock Command Class Operation Types:
In Timed Operation only one Lock Timeout value is available: 30 seconds timeout. All the other timeout values are ignored.
By default the Door Lock has the following configuration:
Operation Type: Timed Operation (0x02)
Lock Timeout Minutes: 0x00
Lock Timeout Seconds: 0x1E (30)

The Door Lock can be operated:

Calibration procedure
After a reset procedure, the user must do the recalibration of the lock mechanism.
The calibration procedure must be performed, as described below. Otherwise correct behavior of the device is not guaranteed.

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

Firmware-Update over the Air

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:

If/when completed successfully (Firmware Update procedure might take up to 10 minutes) the LEDs will blink GREEN and return to normal operation.

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 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.
