1: Set Ignore Start Level Bit When Transmitting Dim Commands

Defines the behavior when transmitting dim commands

Overview

The ZDW103 can send Dim commands to Z-Wave enabled dimmers. The Dim command has a start level embedded in it. A dimmer receiving this command will start dimming from that start level. However, the command also has a bit that indicates whether the dimmer should ignore the start level. If the bit is set to 1, the dimmer will ignore the start level and instead start dimming from its current level. To clear this bit, configure this parameter to the value of 0.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_1_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 1
Options Use transmisison start level (0)      
  Ignore transmisison start level (1)      

2: Suspend Group 4

Disable transmission of command to Group 4

Overview

You may wish to disable transmitting commands to Z-Wave devices that are in Group 4 without “un-associating” those devices from the group. Setting parameter 2 to the value of 1 will stop the ZDW103 from transmitting to devices that are “associated” into Group 4.
It is possible that you may only want the units in Group 4 to track when the dimmer is being turned ON and OFF and not when dimming.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_2_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options Enable transmission to Group 4 (0)      
  Disable transmission to Group 4 (1)      

3: Night Light

Defines the behavior of the blue LED.

Overview

Default is Night Light mode where LED is on when switch is off.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_3_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options LED on when switch is ON (0)      
  LED on when switch is OFF (1)      

4: Invert Switch

Change the top of the switch to OFF and the bottom of the switch to ON.

Overview

Note: If you invert the switches and also install the product upside down, remember the load will now be controlled by the right, not the left switch.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_4_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options No (0)      
  Yes (1)      

5: Ignore Start-Level (Receiving)

This dimmer will start dimming from its current level.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_5_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options No (0)      
  Yes (1)      

6: Don’t Send Level Command After Transmitting Dim Commands

Change behavior of dim level information update

Overview

When you press and hold the bottom of the ZDW103 paddle once, the Z-Wave devices that are associated into Group 1 are sent the Dim command. After you release the paddle, the ZDW103 follows up by commanding the devices to go to the same level of the ZDW103. By default, the ZDW103 is set not to do this. To enable ZDW103 to do this set this parameter to 0.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_6_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 1
Options Send level command (0)      
  Don’t send level command (1)      

7: On/Off Command Dim Step

Indicates how many levels the dimmer will change for each dimming step.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_7_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 99
Default Value 1

8: On/Off Command Dim Rate

Sets the rate at which the dimmer changes the light level.

Overview

This value indicates in 10 millisecond resolution, how often the dim level will change. For example, if you set this parameter to 1, then every 10ms the dim level will change. If you set it to 255, then every 2.55 seconds

Property Value
Configuration ID config_8_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 3

9: Local Control Dim Step

Indicates how many levels the dimmer will change for each dimming step.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_9_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 99
Default Value 1

10: Local Control Dim Rate

Sets the dim rate

Overview

This value indicates in 10 millisecond resolution, how often the dim level will change. For example, if you set this parameter to 1, then every 10ms the dim level will change. If you set it to 255, then every 2.55 seconds the dimmer will change.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_10_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 3

11: ALL ON/ALL OFF Dim Step

Indicates how many levels the dimmer will change for each dimming step.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_11_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 99
Default Value 1

12: ALL ON/ALL OFF Dim Rate

Sets the dim rate for the all on/off command

Overview

This value indicates in 10 millisecond resolution, how often the dim level will change. For example, if you set this parameter to 1, then every 10ms the dim level will change. If you set it to 255, then every 2.55 seconds the dimmer will change.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_12_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 3

13: Disable Group 4 During a Dim Command

Change behavior of command to Group 4 during Dim Command

Overview

After the ZDW103 is commanded to stop dimming, it will then command the Z-Wave devices in Group 4 to the ZDW103’s new level. To prevent the ZDW103 from commanding the Z-Wave devices in Group 4 during this particular occurrence, set Parameter 13 to the value of 1.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_13_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options Enable transmission to Group 4 (0)      
  Disable transmission to Group 4 (1)      

14: Enable Shade Control Group 2

Enable Shade Control Group 2

Overview

The ZDW103 can control shade control devices via its group 2 if this configuration parameter is set to 1.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_14_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options Disabled (0)      
  Enabled (1)      

15: Enable Shade Control Group 3

Enable Shade Control Group 3

Overview

The ZDW103 can control shade control devices via its group 3 if this configuration parameter is set to 1.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_15_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options Disabled (0)      
  Enabled (1)      

19: LED Transmission Indication

Change behavior of LED during transmission to group 1-4

Overview

The ZDW103 will flicker its LED when it is transmitting to any of its 4 groups. This flickering can be set to not flicker at all (set to 0), to flicker the entire time it is transmitting (set to 1), or to flicker for only 1 second when it begins transmitting (set to 2). By default, the ZDW103 is set to flicker for only 1 second.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_19_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 2
Options No flicker (0)      
  Flicker during all transmission (1)      
  Flicker first second of transmission (2)
