Overview

The DHS Z-Wave AC Motor Shutter Controller DHS-WIN-BLW-DHS is Z-Wave Shutter device specifically designed for use in smart homes and offices. The product allows to operate roller blinds/shutters wirelessly using a Z-wave enabled (AUS/NZ version 921.42 MHz) controllers (compatible universal remote controllers, control panels, gateways, PC with Z-Wave USB dongle) or manually via connected manual switch. The shutter controller can act as a wireless repeater to ensure that commands intended for another device in the network are received. This is useful to eliminate “RF deadspots” when the radio range of the Z-Wave network is inuenced. This function is part of the Z-Wave network functionality and is set up via Z-Wave controller.

Inclusion Information

  1. Connect the Z-Wave Shutter Controller to the motor, power circuits and to the manual switches as per instructions in the section INSTALLATION above.
  2. When the Shutter Controller is not yet included in a Z-Wave network, NWI works for 30 seconds when the Shutter Controller is power ON. Make sure your Z-Wave Gateway is in the correct operating mode (inclusion). To include/exclude press 5 times any connected buttons. During the whole procedure controller (Gateway) and Z-Wave Shutter Controller must be in close proximity of 3 m. Successful inclusion will be indicated by your Z-Wave remote controller (Gateway). In case inclusion was not successful, try the procedure again or reset network settings by running exclusion procedure (see below).
  3. Once the Z-Wave Shutter Controller has been added into your Z-Wave home network successfully, you may need to assign it to a speciö c button on your controller (Gateway). Refer to your Z-Wave controller (Gateway) / panel for instructions on how to do this.
  4. Now, you can control your lamp via your Z-Wave Gateway or other controller

Exclusion Information

  1. Install Connect the Z-Wave Shutter Controller to the load, power circuits and to the manual switch as per instructions in the section INSTALLATION above.
  2. Start exclusion procedure on your controller and when requested press and release any connected button 5 times. During the whole procedure the controller and Z-Wave Shutter Controller must be close proximity of not more then 3 m.
  3. Successful exclusion will be indicated by your Z-Wave remote controller. LED on the Z-Wave Shutter Controller will start slow blinking. In case exclusion was not successful, try the procedure again.

13 Command from the blocking node Which command from the blocking node indicates blocking is disabled
14 Invert open and close relays Exchange open and close relays
  Switch All Mode Set the mode for the switch when receiving SWITCH ALL commands

Parameter 1: Buttons mode

Buttons mode One push button: One button is used (chose any), press while moving up and down stops, while stopped moves to opposite direction to previous. // Two buttons with neutral position: Up click moves up if stopped and stops if moving down, Down click moves down if stopped and stops if moving up, Hold Up/Down moves in up/down, Release stops. // Two toggle switch: Switch to Up/Down moves up/down. // Two paddles with Power and Direction: Hold Up button to move blinds up. If Down button is pressed, blinds will move down. Release Up button to stop. The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 One push button
1 Two paddles with Power and Direction
2 Two toggle switch
3 Two buttons with neutral position

The manufacturer defined default value is 3 ( Two buttons with neutral position).

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

Parameter 2: Automatically close after

If not zero, automatically close blind after a user deö ned time

Values in the range 0 to 10 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 0.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_2_2 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 3: What to do on RF close command

How to interpret RF Off command Defines how to interpret RF Off command. Can be used in conjunction with Auto Close function: Ignore - to open the door by motion detectors and close it back after some amount of time: in case of multiple motion detectors each would try to open that would break logics Open - to open on both On and Off paddle press on the remote and close after some amount of time. Button close click will still work (if button operations are not disabled). Note that Dim Down command will still begin close motion. The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 Close
1 Ignore
2 Open
3 Open if closed, otherwise Close

The manufacturer defined default value is 0 (Close).

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

Parameter 4: Typical click timeout

Typical time used to diff erentiate click, hold, double and triple clicks

Values in the range 1 to 100 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 50.

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

Parameter 5: Invert buttons

The following option values may be configured -:

Value Description
0 No
1 Yes

The manufacturer defined default value is 0 (No).

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

Parameter 6: Action on button press or hold

Which command should be sent to Association group on button press or hold Defines which command should be sent to Association group on button press or hold. Scene mode will send 1 for Up event, 2 for Stop, 3 for Down. The following option values may be configured -:
