PSMZ0001 Plug module

This describes the Z-Wave device PSMZ0001, manufactured by Coqon with the thing type UID of coqon_psmz0001_00_000.

The device is in the category of Power Outlet, defining Small devices to be plugged into a power socket in a wall which stick there.

The PSMZ0001 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.

The following table summarises the channels available for the PSMZ0001 -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Switch switch_binary Switch Switch
Electric meter (watts) meter_watts Energy Number
Electric meter (kWh) meter_kwh Energy Number


Switch the power on and off.

The switch_binary channel supports the Switch item and is in the Switch category.

Electric meter (watts)

Indicates the instantaneous power consumption.

The meter_watts channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Electric meter (kWh)

Indicates the energy consumption (kWh).

The meter_kwh channel supports the Number item and is in the Energy category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

Device Configuration

The device has no configuration parameters configured.

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 PSMZ0001 supports 2 association groups.

Group 1: Lifeline

This group supports 1 nodes.

Group 2: SwitchInput
