ZW112 Door/Window Sensor 6

This describes the Z-Wave device ZW112, manufactured by AEON Labs with the thing type UID of aeon_zw112_00_000.

The ZW112 supports routing. This allows the device to communicate using other routing enabled devices as intermediate routers. This device is unable to participate in the routing of data from other devices.

The ZW112 does not permanently listen for messages sent from the controller - it will periodically wake up automatically to check if the controller has messages to send, but will sleep most of the time to conserve battery life. The wakeup period can be configured in the user interface - it is advisable not to make this too short as it will impact battery life - a reasonable compromise is 1 hour. The wakeup period does not impact the devices ability to report events or sensor data. The device can be manually woken with a button press on the device as described below - note that triggering a device to send an event is not the same as a wakeup notification, and this will not allow the controller to communicate with the device.

Overview

Aeon Labs Door/ Window Sensor 6 is a smart Z-Wave sensor that can detect the status of door/window’s open/close in real time.
It’s a security Z-Wave device that supports security encryption. Also it supports the “Over the Air Firmware Updating” that allows you wirelessly update its firmware if needs.
It can be included and operated in any Z-Wave network with other Z-Wave certified devices from manufacturers and/or other applications.

Inclusion Information

Turn the primary controller into inclusion mode, short press the product’s Action Button that you can find in the back of the product.

Exclusion Information

Turn the primary controller into exclusion mode, short press the product’s Action Button that you can find in back of the product.

Wakeup Information

Press the Action Button once, which will trigger sending out the Wake up notification command, press and hold the Action Button for 3 seconds, which will toggle on/off the Sensor be waked up for 10 minutes.

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the ZW112 -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Door Sensor sensor_door Door Contact
Battery Level battery-level Battery Number

Door Sensor

Indicates if the door/window is open or closed.

The sensor_door channel supports the Contact item and is in the Door category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

The following state translation is provided for this channel to the Contact item type -:

Value Label
OPEN Open
CLOSED Closed

Battery Level

Represents the battery level as a percentage (0-100%). Bindings for things supporting battery level in a different format (e.g. 4 levels) should convert to a percentage to provide a consistent battery level reading.

The battery-level channel supports the Number item and is in the Battery category.

Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 7 configuration parameters available in the ZW112. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
1 Value that will be sent on open/close events  
39 Low battery threshold (10% to 50%) The value the sensor will use to determine a low battery level
101 Low battery voltage check Enable or disables the low battery voltage check
111 Low battery voltage check time Sets the value of the interval for the low battery check time (in seconds)
121 Reporting mode on open/close event  
252 Lock/Unlock all configuration parameters  
255 Reset sensor to factory default and remove from network Reset sensor to factory default and remove from network
  Wakeup Interval Sets the interval at which the device will accept commands from the controller
  Wakeup Node Sets the node ID of the device to receive the wakeup notifications

Parameter 1: Value that will be sent on open/close events

The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 On for opened, Off for closed
1 Off for opened, On for closed

The manufacturer defined default value is 0 (On for opened, Off for closed).

This parameter has the configuration ID config_1_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 39: Low battery threshold (10% to 50%)

The value the sensor will use to determine a low battery level

Values in the range 10 to 50 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 20.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_39_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 101: Low battery voltage check

Enable or disables the low battery voltage check

The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 Disable
1 Enable

The manufacturer defined default value is 1 (Enable).

This parameter has the configuration ID config_101_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 111: Low battery voltage check time

Sets the value of the interval for the low battery check time (in seconds)

Values in the range 240 to 134217727 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 86640.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_111_4 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 121: Reporting mode on open/close event

The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 Send nothing
1 Send Basic Set CC
2 Send Sensor Binary Report CC
3 Send Basic Set CC and Sensor Binary Report CC

The manufacturer defined default value is 1 (Send Basic Set CC).

This parameter has the configuration ID config_121_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 252: Lock/Unlock all configuration parameters

The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 Unlock
1 Lock

The manufacturer defined default value is 0 (Unlock).

This parameter has the configuration ID config_252_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 255: Reset sensor to factory default and remove from network

Reset sensor to factory default and remove from network Writing 1431655765 to this parameter will reset to factory default and the sensor will be removed from network.

If 1 byte is sent with a value of 0, then the senor will be reset to factory default, but the sensor will not be removed from the network. Values in the range 0 to 2147483647 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 1.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_255_4_wo and is of type INTEGER. This is a write only parameter.

Wakeup Interval

The wakeup interval sets the period at which the device will listen for messages from the controller. This is required for battery devices that sleep most of the time in order to conserve battery life. The device will wake up at this interval and send a message to the controller to tell it that it can accept messages - after a few seconds, it will go back to sleep if there is no further communications.

This setting is defined in seconds. It is advisable not to set this interval too short or it could impact battery life. A period of 1 hour (3600 seconds) is suitable in most instances.

Note that this setting does not affect the devices ability to send sensor data, or notification events.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_interval and is of type INTEGER.

Wakeup Node

When sleeping devices wake up, they send a notification to a listening device. Normally, this device is the network controller, and normally the controller will set this automatically to its own address. In the event that the network contains multiple controllers, it may be necessary to configure this to a node that is not the main controller. This is an advanced setting and should not be changed without a full understanding of the impact.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_node and is of type INTEGER.

Association Groups

Association groups allow the device to send unsolicited reports to the controller, or other devices in the network. Using association groups can allow you to eliminate polling, providing instant feedback of a device state change without unnecessary network traffic.

The ZW112 supports 1 association group.

Group 1: Lifeline

Sends sensor report as configured in parameter 121 when the sensor is triggered This group supports 5 nodes.
