Step by Step Instructions

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

Materials Needed:

  • Grounded Outlet
  • PC or Mac

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. Each individual outlet (Z-Wave Outlet & “Always-On” Outlet) can handle up to 10 Amps, but together, the device cannot go above 15 Amps.

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

NOTE: We skipped the exclusion process because we’ve found that Vera seems to pick up our device flawlessly. However, if you need to exclude the device, please visit this page for more information on how to exclude on Vera: http://docs5.mios.com/doc.php?language=1&manual=1&platform=3pro&page=include_mode.

Alright, let’s include your device!

Including Steps:

  • On the Main screen, click on the, “Devices” tab
  • Click, “Add Device”
  • Scroll down near the bottom and click, “Generic Z-Wave Device”
  • Under the, “Pair Your Device”, click “Next” until your HUB goes into inclusion mode
  • While your HUB is in inclusion mode, press 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 contact us as you have likely received a defective unit)
  • If successful, you will see a new screen pop up and there will be a notification that says, “Device Detected”
  • Go ahead and name your device
  • Select a Room and hit, “Finish”
  • Wait for the device to appear

Check to make sure your device turns on and off and if so, congratulations, you now have remote control over your lights!

**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**

Full Installation Videos

Below you will find our full installation videos for the Plug-In Module.  There are two videos that will be useful for when you set up your smart plug. 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).
