Step by Step Instructions

– Step 1 –
Gather Your Materials

Materials Needed:

  • Grounded Outlet
  • Mac/PC
  • Z-Wave Enabled HUB

Next, we’ll locate an outdoor outlet which is grounded and within the recommended distance from your Z-Wave Hub/Gateway (or nearest Z-Wave, non-battery powered, device).

When you’re ready to select your plug’s location, please move onto, “Step 2”.

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, please make sure you are within range above. If you are confident you are, please click on the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” tab below to exclude your device first**

-Step 2-
Select Your Location

Please use the below Z-Wave Worksheet to determine whether or not your location is suitable for your Z-Wave device.

Here’s how to use the Z-Wave Worksheet:

  • Go to where you want your switch to be located (or where it’s already located) and look straight towards your HUB (or nearest Z-Wave repeater)
  • Count how many walls, furniture, or other obstructions are in the way and write the down
  • Then use the chart and figures below to figure out if the switch should be within range

Z-Wave Worksheet (from your instructions)
Please use the below to calculate whether or not your switch is within range.
(NOTE: you can ignore the, “Page 2” and the fact that the diagram shows the plug being in the Dining Room below — this picture is taken from our indoor plug instruction manual):

 

A Note on Max Amperage:
Make sure that both devices together do not equal more than 15 Amps. Both outlets individually can handle 15 Amps on their own, however, together they cannot exceed 15A. So, if you have something that’s 10 Amps in Outlet #1, you can only use something that’s 5 Amps in Outlet #2.

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, please make sure you are within range above. If you are confident you are, please click on the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” tab below to exclude your device first**

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

Alright, let’s include your device!

Including Steps:

  • Go ahead and put your HUB/Gateway in inclusion/pairing mode
  • While your HUB/Gateway is in inclusion mode, press the Middle Button on the front of your NZW97 five (5) times rapidly within 1-2 seconds

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

STILL CAN’T GET IT TO PAIR? You may need to exclude the device first. While this is rare, sometimes it happens. Please click see the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” section below. Once that’s completed, please return here.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please make sure you are within range above. If you are confident you are, please click on the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” tab below to exclude your device first**

-Device Exclusion / Removal-
