Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 7 configuration parameters available in the RF9542. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
1 Delayed OFF time delay time in seconds
2 Panic ON time time in seconds for panic mode
3 Panic OFF time off time in seconds for panic mode
4 Basic Set Value send this value to associated devices
5 Power Up State Power Up State of the switch
6 Panic mode enable Enables this switch to participate in panic mode
7 Dimmer Ramp Time time in seconds to ramp to desired level
  Switch All Mode Set the mode for the switch when receiving SWITCH ALL commands

Parameter 1: Delayed OFF time

delay time in seconds The amount of time in seconds the switch will delay when trigger the delayed off feature Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

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

Parameter 2: Panic ON time

time in seconds for panic mode The amount of time in seconds the switch will turn on for when panic mode is triggered Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_2_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 3: Panic OFF time

off time in seconds for panic mode The amount of time in seconds the switch will turn off for when panic mode is triggered Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_3_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 4: Basic Set Value

send this value to associated devices Setting this to anything other than 0 will cause the value to be transmitted to devices in the association group when the switch is triggered. A setting other than 0 will likely result in undesired operation Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_4_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 5: Power Up State

The manufacturer defined default value is 1 (OFF).

This parameter has the configuration ID config_5_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 6: Panic mode enable

Enables this switch to participate in panic mode

The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
1 OFF
2 ON

The manufacturer defined default value is 1 (OFF).

This parameter has the configuration ID config_6_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 7: Dimmer Ramp Time

time in seconds to ramp to desired level The amount of time in seconds the switch will take to reach the desired dim level Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_7_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Switch All Mode

Set the mode for the switch when receiving SWITCH ALL commands.

The following option values may be configured -: | Value | Description | |——–|————-| | 0 | Exclude from All On and All Off groups | | 1 | Include in All On group | | 2 | Include in All Off group | | 255 | Include in All On and All Off groups |

This parameter has the configuration ID switchall_mode 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 RF9542 supports 1 association group.

Group 1: Group 1

This group supports 5 nodes.
