Step by Step Instructions – Android Users

(iOS Users, please click here or scroll down about halfway)

– Step 1 –
Gather Your Materials & Find an Appropriate Outlet

Materials Needed:

  • Gangbox (With Neutral, Line & Load Wires)
  • Cell Phone or Tablet
  • SmartThings HUB 1.0 or 2.0

Locate an area to install your switch within the recommended distance (calculated on Page 2-3 in your manual) from your HUB.

Walls, furniture, and other obstructions may affect the communication between the Plug-In Module and your Hub/Gateway, so please keep this in mind when selecting your location.

Follow the recommended wiring instructions located in Step 2.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please ensure your switch is within range of your HUB. 95% of the pairing/including failures stem from this issue. Best practice is to start with Z-Wave products near your HUB and build your network out. The more Z-Wave devices, the more efficient your network.**

-Step 2-
Wiring Diagrams

Please follow the recommended wiring diagrams below. If your wiring diagram does not look like the below, please reach out and we will try our best to help (although we are not electricians).

Here are some Pro-Tips to follow:

  • Remember to turn off the power prior to installation and ensure all connections are made prior to turning the power back on
  • The Line wire is Hot. Please use a multimeter to find it.
  • Our smart switches will work with normal 3-Way Switches. You do not need a special Auxiliary Switch
  • Our switches require a Neutral wire. Please do not try wiring without one.
  • Please remember to Ground all connections
  • Remember to start the inclusion process prior to flipping the power back on
  • Use Wire-Strippers to cut 1″ for screw installation and 5/8″ for Terminal Installation

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please ensure your switch is within range of your HUB. 95% of the pairing/including failures stem from this issue. Best practice is to start with Z-Wave products near your HUB and build your network out. The more Z-Wave devices, the more efficient your network.**

-Step 3-
Adding (Including) to the Network & Completing the Setup Process

Please do not turn the power back on until you start the actual inclusion process — this switch has, “Auto-Inclusion” so if you switch the power on too early, it will not auto-include and you will have to do the backup method.

Now that your switch is installed, we’ll start the inclusion process.

Including Steps:

  • Open up your SmartThings app and click on the, “My Home” tab, followed by the, “Things” tab
  • Walk down to your circuit breaker and flip on the power (you will now have 30 seconds to press, “Add a Thing” in your SmartThings app)
  • While next to the breaker, press, “Add a Thing” (at the bottom) or the (+) at the top right to start adding the switch and SmartThings will automatically start looking for devices
  • Wait for auto-inclusion to do its thing. It will automatically include/pair to your HUB
    • If successful, your device will flash twice (NOTE: Auto-Inclusion will time out after 30 seconds)
    • If it does not flash within 30 seconds, please use the alternate method of pairing which is pressing the top button 6x within 2 seconds
  • You should now see that your device is detected (“Dimmer Switch” should appear)

Setup After Inclusion

  • After your device was detected, press, “Save” (or if you’d like to rename your device, you can do that and then click, “Save”)
  • Once you click, “Save” a pop up will appear asking you to, “Confirm Paired Devices” — Click, “OK”
  • Now you are back at the, “My Home” screen and you will see the Z-Wave switch on the screen which is labeled, “Dimmer Switch”

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please ensure your switch is within range of your HUB. 95% of the pairing/including failures stem from this issue. Best practice is to start with Z-Wave products near your HUB and build your network out. The more Z-Wave devices, the more efficient your network.**

-Step 4-
Adding the, “Advanced Button Control” SmartApp & Our Custom Device Handler

While this step may look intimidating, we promise it isn’t. The best part is that you’ll also learn how to use IDE, which is the engine under the hood of your SmartThings HUB. We’re working on a more integrated way to activate scenes with SmartThings, but in the meantime, please follow the directions below. As always, if you run into any issues, please let us know!

Ready? Let’s Go!

Open up IDE on your Computer/Tablet:

  • Go to: www.graph.api.smartthings.com (it’s free)
    • Login using the same Username/Password as your SmartThings Phone App
  • Click on the green, “Login” button on the top right of the screen and login using the same credentials as your SmartThings Phone App
  • Once logged in, click, “My Locations” (top left of the screen) — you should see your HUB’s location there
  • Click on your HUB’s location underneath where it says, “Name”
    • You may be prompted to login again — if so, please do

Please follow the directions in the sections below:

-Step 5-
Setting Up Scenes Using the, “Advanced Button Controller” SmartApp we Just Installed

Almost there! This section will help you use the, “Advanced Button Controller” SmartApp we just installed.

In the example below, we’ll setup two different scenes:

  • Bedtime Scene: This will shut off all lights and lock the doors
  • Movie Scene: Turns off all lights and turns on the colored lights

First, We Have to Find Where the, “Advanced Button Control” SmartApp is within your SmartThings App:

  • In your SmartThings App, click on, “Marketplace”
  • Then click, “SmartApps”
  • Scroll to the bottom and click, “My Apps”
  • Finally, select, “Advanced Button Control”

How To Use Advance Button Control with Your NZW31S

Prior to Step 1, scroll down to the, “Advanced Config” options and click on it. Change, “Set/Override # of Buttons?” to five (5)

  • Step #1: Select Your Button Device 
    • Select your NZW31S switch and move to Step 2
  • Step #2: Configure Your Buttons
    • Only use buttons 2-6 (DO NOT use Button #1)

Setting up the, “Bedtime” and “Movie” Scene under Button 2

We’ll setup the switch in the following way:

  • Double-tap (2x) the top switch, you will activate the, “Bedtime” Scene
  • Double-tap (2x) the bottom switch, you will activate the, “Movie” Scene

Prior to getting started, please review the picture below as it will be important as you setup the scenes:

REMEMBER: Under each button there will be a, “Pushed” and a, “Held” section.

  • Pushed: Whenever you select something in the pushed section, it will be associated with the top button of your switch
  • Held: Whenever you select something in the held section, it will be associated with the bottom button of your switch

With that said, let’s get this thing configured! Click on, “Button 2” to set up both scenes

Bedtime Scene: Since were are assigning the, “Bedtime” scene to the top button, we will always select, “When Pushed”

  • Click on, “Switches (Turn Off)” and under, “When Pushed”, select the lights you want turned off
  • Click on, “Locks (Lock Only)” and under, “When Pushed” select your lock

Movie Scene: Since we are assigning the, “Movie” scene to the bottom button, we will always select, “When Held”

  • Click on, “Switches (Turn Off)” and under, “When Held”, select the lights you want turned off
  • Click on, “Dimmers (On to Level – Group 1)” and under, “When Held” select the light and brightness level

Click Save and test out your double-tap!

-Step 6-
Run a Z-Wave Refresh to Update Your Mesh Network With Your New Switch (OPTIONAL: But Recommended)

This step is highly recommended whenever a new Z-Wave device is added to your network. It tells your HUB to re-map the network which, ultimately, will make your network faster and more efficient.

Z-Wave Refresh Steps:

  • In the SmartThings app, click on the, “Menu” button
  • Then click, “Hub is Online”
  • Next click, “Z-Wave Utilities”
  • Next click, “Repair Z-Wave Network”
  • Finally, click, “Start Z-Wave Network Repair”
  • Wait 20 minutes for your SmartThings HUB to re-map (discover) the network
    NOTE: Do not touch anything on your network during this time

Congratulations, you now have a smart switch!

-Device Removal-
Removing Your Smart Switch From SmartThings

Please follow the below directions to remove your smart switch from your SmartThings HUB.
(NOTE: this is the same process for SmartThings HUB’s 1.0 & 2.0)

Removal Steps:
