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:

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

Alright, let’s include your Z-Wave device to your network!

Please do not plug in your device until you start the actual inclusion process — this plug has, “Auto-Inclusion” so if you plug it in too early, it will not auto-include.

Including Steps:

  • Press, “Add a Thing” and it will automatically start looking for devices
  • Plug in your device and let it find the signal from the 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 middle button 5x within 1 second.
  • You should now see that your device is detected (“Z-Wave Switch Secure” 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 Secure”

If you’d like to add the scene function, please move onto the, “Scene Setup” section below — trust us, you’ll love this function!

Scene Activation Instructions

We promise this is easier than it looks below!

-Step 3-
Setting up your Plug with the, “Advanced Button Controller” SmartApp

Almost there – the hard part is done! Now we’ll show you how to set up your scene using the SmartApp you just installed.

  • Open up your SmartThings app
  • Click on, “Marketplace”
  • Next, click on, “SmartApps”
  • Scroll down to the bottom and click on, “My Apps”
  • Create a new button device mapping by following the steps below:
    • Step 1: Select Your Button Device – click on your NZW36 plug
    • Step 2: Configure Your Buttons – see below for detailed instructions

Configuring Your Switch (detailed instructions)
Regardless of what you choose, make sure you choose, “When Pushed” and NOT, “When Held”. More to come below.

Example #1 – Bedtime Scene: Turn off all lights and lock door(s)

  • Click on the (+) sign by, “Switches (Turn Off)”
  • Select the lights (or switches) you’d like to turn off under the, “When Pushed” section and click, “Done”
  • Scroll down and click on the (+) sign by, “Locks (Lock Only)”
  • Select the lock(s) you’d like locked under the, “When Pushed” section and click, “Done”
  • Then click, “Save” and then click, “Save” Again
  • You should see a confirmation

Go ahead and test it out by double-clicking on the manual button on your NZW36. Make sure to press it fast (2x in 1 second).

Example #2 – Movie Scene: Turn off all lights and turn on colored lights

  • Click on the (+) sign by, “Switches (Turn Off)”
  • Select the lights (or switches) you’d like to turn off under the, “When Pushed” section and click, “Done”
  • Scroll up and click on the (+) sign by, “Switches (Turn On)”
  • Select the light(s) you’d like turned on under the, “When Pushed” section and click, “Done”
  • Then click, “Save” and then click, “Save” Again
  • You should see a confirmation

Alternately, instead of pressing, “Switches (Turn On)”, you could select “Dimmers (On to Level – Group 1)” or if you’ve created a Routine within the smart app, you can actually engage a routine (scroll to the bottom where it says, “Run Routine”).

These are just some ideas — the sky is the limit!

– Step 1 –
Installing the Device Handler & SmartApp

Materials Needed:

  • SmartThings IDE Account (free)
  • Device Handler (link below)
  • Advanced Button Controller SmartApp (link below)
  • PC or Mac

Open up three tabs on your computer’s browser.

The first tab will be: https://graph.api.smartthings.com

The third tab will be: Advanced Button Controller SmartApp

Now, go to your first tab (SmartThings IDE) and follow the directions below:

  • Click on the green, “Login” button on the top right of the screen
  • If you have an account already, please login
  • If you don’t have an account, please create one using the same email/password as your current SmartThings account (ie: your mobile account)
  • Once logged in, click on, “My Locations” located on the 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 login again

Now we are going to install the device handler:

  • First, click on, “My Device Handlers” located at the top, in the middle of the screen
  • Click the green button titled, “Create New Device Handler”
  • Click on, “From Code”
  • SWITCH TO TAB #2 (ie: Inovelli NZW36 Device Handler | Scene Enabled URL) and copy all 198 lines of code
  • SWITCH BACK TO TAB #1 (ie: SmartThings IDE) and paste the code in the white space
  • After you’ve pasted the code, click, “Create”
  • Then click, “Publish” and then, “For Me”

Finally, let’s install the SmartApp:

  • Click on, “My SmartApps” located to the left of, “My Device Handlers”
  • Click the green button titled, “New SmartApp”
  • Click on, “From Code”
  • SWITCH TO TAB #3 (ie: Advanced Button Controller SmartApp URL) and copy all 644 lines of code
  • SWITCH BACK TO TAB #1 (ie: SmartThings IDE) and paste the code in the white space
  • After you’ve pasted the code, click, “Create” and then, “Save”
  • Then click, “Publish” and then, “For Me”

-Step 2-
Changing the Device Type

Now that the device handler has been installed, we need to change the plug type so SmartThings knows that your plug is now going to use the handler that was just installed.

To do this do the following:

  • Click on, “My Devices”
  • Find your Inovelli NZW36 Scene Enabled Plug and click on it
  • Click on, “Edit”
  • Click on the drop down menu under, “Type” (about halfway down) and select, “Inovelli 1-Channel Smart Plug NZW36 w/Scene”
  • Finally, click, “Update”

When you go back to your, “My Home” and click on the NZW36 plug, your screen should look like this:

-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**
