Testing your Nano Switch.

 

With Nano Switch installed and powered on, we should make sure that Nano Switch is correctly controlling the attached light(s).

 

Testing via the attached wall-switch(es).

 

To automatically detect and set the mode to the appropriate type of manual switch wired into Nano Switch, toggle the button on the wall-switch(es) once and wait 2 seconds for the Nano Switch to attempt to automatically detect the type of switch attached.

 

Now try turning the connected switch(es) on and off - the connected light(s) should respond appropriately (on and off).

 

Testing via the "Action Button".

 

If for any reason the attached wall-switch is not turning the connected light(s) on or off, try pressing the Nano Switch’s "Action Button" to turn the connected light(s) on / off. If this works, it simply means we need to configure the Nano Switch to work with your type of wall-switch - which we cover a little further down.

 

Adding Nano Switch to your Z-Wave controller.

 

Once you have confirmed that the Nano Switch is working, it is now time to add Nano Switch to your Z-Wave network.

After your Nano Switch is installed and powered on, you are now able to manually control the Nano Switch to turn it On/Off directly via pressing your Nano Switch’s Action Button, it is now time to add your Nano Switch to the Z-Wave network. To set your Z-Wave gateway/controller into pairing mode, please refer to the respective section within your controller instruction manual.

 

1.Set your Z-Wave controller into pairing mode.

 

2.Press the Action Button on the Nano Switch once or toggle the external manual switch once, the green LED (non-secure indication) will blink to indicate the Nano Switch is entering into pairing mode.

 

3.If the Nano Switch has been successfully added to your Z-Wave network, its RGB LED will be solid. If the pairing was unsuccessful, the red LED will be on for 2 seconds and then remain a colorful gradient. Repeat the instructions above from step 1.

 

With your Nano Switch now working as a part of your smart home, you’ll be able to configure it from your home control software/phone application. Please refer to your software or gateway user guide for further instructions on configuring Nano Switch to your needs.

 

Removing Nano Switch to your Z-Wave controller.

 

Your Nano Switch can be removed from your Z-Wave network at any time. You’ll need to use your Z-Wave network’s main controller. To set your Z-Wave controller/gateway into removal mode, please refer to the respective section within your controller instruction manual.

 

1.Set your Z-Wave controller into removal mode.

 

2.Press the Action Button on the Nano Switch once or toggle the external manual switch 3 times in fast succession.

 

3.If the Nano Switch has been successfully removed from your Z-Wave network, its RGB LED will remain colourful gradient. If the removal was unsuccessful, the RGB LED will still be solid (following the state of the output load), repeat the instructions above from step 1.
