P1-dongle P1-dongle

This describes the Z-Wave device P1-dongle, manufactured by BeNext with the thing type UID of benext_p1dongle_00_000.

P1-dongle

Overview

The P1-dongle sends smart meter data wirelessly to your controller, helping you get insight of your consumption and things like the overall yield of your solar panels. The P1-dongle can connect to smart meters that support DSMR (Dutch Smart Meter Reader Protocol) eg. all smart meters with a P1-connector.

LED Status Information

  • Ready to install: LED pulse once per second
  • Including: LED pulse twice per second
  • Excluding: LED pulse three times per 1.5 second
  • Include Successful: LED on for one second
  • Ready and operating in a Z-Wave network: LED continuously on
  • No ready and not included in a Z-Wave network: LED pulse once per second

Inclusion Information

  • Put you controller in inclusion mode
  • Connect the P1 Dongle to your Smart Meter (use a power source when needed)
  • The P1 Dongle will switch to Network Wide Inclusion automatically

Use the button to switch the P1 Dongle to Inclusion (LED pulse twice per second) or Exclusion / Reset (LED pulse three times per 1.5 second) mode

Exclusion Information

  • Put your controller and the P1 Dongle in exclusion mode (LED pulse three times per 1.5 second)
  • The dongle will exclude from it’s former network and reset to node ID zero 
  • If the P1 Dongle wasn’t included in a network before, this procedure will act as a node reset

Use the button to switch the P1 Dongle to Inclusion (LED pulse twice per second) or Exclusion / Reset (LED pulse three times per 1.5 second) mode
