ZTM230 Dual paddle wall mounted transmitter

This describes the Z-Wave device ZTM230, manufactured by ACT - Advanced Control Technologies with the thing type UID of act_ztm230_00_000.

Dual paddle wall mounted transmitter

Overview

The ZTM230 Wall Mounted Transmitter is a component of the HomePro lighting control system. Wire the Transmitter anywhere power is available according to the diagram above and program from the Wireless Controller to operate loads. Inclusion of the ZTM230 Wall Mounted Transmitter on the ZTH200 Wireless Controller menu allows remote ON/OFF control and dimming of lights controlled by associated modules, as it does not control any electrical load directly.

This Wall Mounted Transmitter is designed to work with other Z-Wave enabled devices. Z-Wave nodes of other types can be Included in the network and will also act as repeaters to increase the range of the network.

1: Ignore Start Level Bit

Set Ignore Start Level Bit When Transmitting Dim Commands

Overview

The ZTM230 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 can be sent so that the dimmer ignores the start level and instead start dimming from its current level. By default, the ZTM230 sends the command so that the dimmer will start dimming from its current dim level rather then the start level embedded in the command. To change this, simply set the configuration parameter above to 0.  

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_1_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 1
Options Do not ignore start level (0)      
  Ignore start level (1)      

2: Suspend Group 4

Disable transmitting commands to group 4 devices.

Overview

You may wish to disable transmitting commands to Z-Wave devices that are in Group 4 without “disassociating” those devices from the group.
Setting parameter 2 to the value of 1 will stop the ZTM230 from transmitting to devices that are “associated” into Group 4  

Property Value
Configuration ID config_2_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 0

3: Night Light

LED behaviour of the ZTM230.

Overview

The LED on the ZTM230, will by default, turn ON when the status of the devices in Group 1 is ON. To make the LED turn ON when the status of Group 1 is OFF set this parameter to a value of 1.  

Property Value
Configuration ID config_3_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 0

4: Invert Switch

Switch paddle behaviour

Overview

To change the top of the transmitter to OFF and the bottom of the transmitter to ON, set parameter 4 to 1. To change back to original settings, set this parameter to the value of 0.  

Property Value
Configuration ID config_4_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 0

5: Ignore Start Level Bit

Ignore Start Level When Receiving Dim Commands

Overview

The ZTM230 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 can be sent so that the dimmer ignores the start level and instead start dimming from its current level. By default, the ZTM230 sends the command so that the dimmer will start dimming from its current dim level rather then the start level embedded in the command. To change this, simply set the configuration parameter above to 0

Note that this only affects a level that is reported or possibly sent by the ZTM230 since the ZTM230 does not control a load.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_5_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 1

7: On/Off Command dim step

Dim step parameter

Overview

Dim step (dim rate) parameter. It can be set to a value of 1 to 99. This value indicates how many levels the dimmer will change when the timer (discussed below) expires.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_7_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 99
Default Value 3

8: On/Off Command dim timer

Dim timer parameter

Overview

Dim timer parameter (how fast the dim rate) parameter. It can be set to a value of 1 to 255. This value indicates in 10 millisecond resolution, how often the dim level will change. For example, if you set this parameter to 1, then the dim level will change every 10mS. If you set it to 255, then the dim level will change every 2.55 seconds.  

Property Value
Configuration ID config_8_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 10

9: Local Control dim rate

13: Disable group 4 during dim command

Disable group 4 during dim command

Overview

Note that this only affects a level that is reported or possibly sent by the ZTM230 since the ZTM230 does not control a load.

After the ZTM230 is commanded to stop dimming when it has been dimming because of the DIM START command, it will then command the Z-Wave devices that are in Group 4 to its new level. To prevent the ZTM230 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
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 0

14: Enable shade control group 2

Enable shade control group 2

Overview

The ZTM230 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
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 0

15: Enable shade control group 3

Enable shade control group 3

Overview

The ZTM230 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
Range 0 to 1
Default Value 0

16: Enable shade control group 1

Enable shade control group 1

Overview

The ZTM230 can control shade control devices via its group 1 if this configuration parameter is set to 1. 

Property Value

Transmission LED behaviour

Overview

The ZTM230 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 ZTM230 is set to flicker for only 1 second.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_19_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 2
Default Value 2

20: Poll group 1 interval

Group 1 poll interval

Overview

How often it will poll Group 1 is configured using this parameter 20. The default poll rate is 2. Note that the poll interval starts timing again upon successful transmission of the poll request. Also note that the polling interval is not “exact” and that you may see some slight drift occur. Also the poll interval is reset upon switch being pressed. In addition, on power up, the ZTM230 will randomly poll based upon it’s node ID within 2 minutes of power being applied.  

Property Value
Configuration ID config_20_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 2
