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

Materials Needed:

  • Grounded Outlet
  • Cell Phone or Tablet
  • SmartThings HUB 1.0 or 2.0

Locate an indoor outlet which is grounded and within the recommended distance (less than 30ft) from your Z-Wave Hub/Gateway.

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.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, try pairing the device directly next to the HUB. You can move it to its final destination once paired/included. This will solve 95% of all problems you may have when pairing**

-Step 2-
Plug In Lamp(s)/Appliance(s)

Before plugging in your module, please plug in the device(s) you are looking to control.  In addition, make sure that both devices together do not equal more than 15 Amps. The, “Always-On” outlet (non-smart) can handle 15 Amps, while the Z-Wave smart outlet can handle 10 Amps — So, if you have something that’s 10 Amps in the, “Always-On” outlet, you can only use something that’s 5 Amps in the smart outlet.

Note: It is not recommended plugging in space (electric) heaters, or any other appliances that may present a hazardous condition due to unattended, unintentional, or automatic power control.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, try pairing the device directly next to the HUB. You can move it to its final destination once paired/included. This will solve 95% of all problems you may have when pairing**

-Step 3-
Plug In the Module & Exclude (Optional – But Highly Recommended)

You are now ready to plug in your module and start to sync to your SmartThings HUB.

Before we start the official syncing (including) process, we are going to go over how to exclude a device. This step is optional, but we like to do it with any new Z-Wave device we get/test, just to make sure. The excluding process is like a reset, and it’s helpful if you bought the device used, or if there is an issue with your HUB/Gateway.  Plus, it doesn’t hurt!

Excluding Steps:

  • Open up your SmartThings app
  • Click on the three lines in the top left of your app (menu)
  • Click on, “Hub is Online”
  • Click on, “Z-Wave Utilities”
  • Click on, “General Device Exclusion”
  • Push on the Middle Button on the front of your NZW36 3-5 times within 3 seconds
    (IMPORTANT: Please make sure the LED light is turning on and off when you’re pressing the button — if it isn’t, please hold the button down for 10 seconds and the LED should turn on. Once it turns on, press the button repeatedly until it toggles on and off every time you push the button. If it does not do this, you may have a defective unit and you should contact us immediately for a replacement)
  • You should now see that your device is excluded

**If you are having issues pairing your device, try pairing the device directly next to the HUB. You can move it to its final destination once paired/included. This will solve 95% of all problems you may have when pairing**

-Step 4-
Adding (Including) to the Network & Completing the Setup Process

Once you’ve finished the Exclusion Process (or if you’ve skipped it) it’s time to include your Z-Wave device to your network.

Including Steps:

  • If you’ve excluded, press the back button, and then the “x” until you are back at the, “My Home” screen where you can see the, “Add a Thing” button (note: if you have a lot of devices, you will have to scroll down to the bottom)
  • Press, “Add a Thing” and it will automatically start looking for devices
  • Press the Middle Button on the front of your NZW36 3-5 times within 3 seconds to activate inclusion
    (IMPORTANT: Please make sure the LED light is turning on and off when you’re pressing the button — if it isn’t, please hold the button down for 10 seconds and the LED should turn on. Once it turns on, press the button repeatedly until it toggles on and off every time you push the button. If it does not do this, you may have a defective unit and you should contact us immediately for a replacement)
  • You should now see that your device is detected (“Z-Wave 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, “Z-Wave Switch”

Now, you’ve successfully paired your device! Enjoy turning on and off your device with your phone, schedules, robots, or whatever you’d like to use. As always, we’re here to help. If you have any questions about setting up schedules or simply home automation in general, we’d love to answer them!

**If you are having issues pairing your device, try pairing the device directly next to the HUB. You can move it to its final destination once paired/included. This will solve 95% of all problems you may have when pairing**

-Device Removal-
Removing Your Smart Plug From SmartThings

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

Removal Steps:

  • From the, “My Home” screen (make sure you are on your, “Things” tab — located at the top) click on the device you’d like to remove
  • Click on the gear icon (top right of the screen)
  • Press the red, “Remove” button at the bottom
  • On the removal screen, you may receive a pop-up asking if you’re sure you want to remove this device
    • Press, “Remove Anyway”
  • Press the Middle Button on the front of your NZW36 3-5 times within 3 seconds
    • If successful, you will see a message saying that the device was successfully removed from SmartThings
    • If unsuccessful, you will see a message saying that the device failed to be removed from SmartThings — if this happens, please move the plug closer to the HUB and try again.

Your smart plug should now be removed from the SmartThings HUB. If you want to re-pair/include the plug again, you’ll want to Exclude (Step 3) it again.

**If you are having issues removing your device, try removing the device directly next to the HUB. This will solve 95% of all problems you may have when removing**

The first video shows the entire pairing process, while the second video helps you set up a schedule with your smart plug (ie: if you want your plug to turn on and off at certain times).
