1: Alarm cancellation delay

Time in seconds that the flood state is retained after flooding event

Overview

Determines time period (in seconds) by which a Flood Sensor will retain the flood state after the flooding itself has ceased. The sensor will keep on reporting flooding to the main controller. This parameter setting does not affect acoustic and visual ala

Property Value
Configuration ID config_1_2
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 3600
Default Value 0

2: Select alarm type (visual/acoustic)

This parameter allows for deactivation visual and acoustic alarm.

Overview

This parameter allows for deactivation visual and acoustic alarm.

Available settings:

0 – acoustic and visual alarms inactive

1 – acoustic alarm inactive, visual alarm active

2 – acoustic alarm active, visual alarm inactive

3 – acoustic and visual alarms active

Parameter allows for increasing a battery life. Setting changes will not affect the sensor’s communication with the main controller – commands to association groups, alarms and reports will still be sent.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_2_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 3
Options Acoustic and visual alarms inactive (0)      
  Acoustic alarm inactive, visual alarm active (1)      
  Acoustic alarm active, visual alarm inactive (2)      
  Acoustic and visual alarms active (3)      

7: Requested dimming level to 2nd assoc. group

“On” level to be sent to devices from 2nd association group on flood event

Overview

Requested dimming level / roller blind opening level when sending turn on / open command to 2nd association group devices.

Available settings:
1-99 – requested level
255 – turn a device on

Determines the requested “on” level to be sent to devices from 2nd association group upon flood event. The value of 255 allows for turning a device on. In case of a Dimmer it means turning it on with the last memorized state, e.g. Dimmer set to 30% and turned off, turned on again using 255 command is turned on with last state i.e. 30%.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_7_1
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 255
Default Value 255

9: Device off and alarm cancellations

Enable/disable device off/alarm cancellation updates to 2nd/3rd assoc groups

Overview

Deactivate turning off devices in 2nd association group & alarm cancellation in 3rd group

This setting decides whether device turn off commands and alarm cancellation notifications will be sent to devices in 2nd and 3rd association groups (respectively).

Setting the parameter’s value to 0 disables sending these two commands to associated devices. This means that these devices WILL NOT be informed when the flooding has ceased. It is still possible to cancel alarms in 3rd association group by choosing second (green) menu position.

Available settings:
0 – alarm (flooding) cancellation inactive
1 – alarm (flooding) cancellation active

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_9_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 1
Options Alarm (flooding) cancellation inactive (0)      
  Alarm (flooding) cancellation active (1)      

10: Temperature measurement interval

Seconds between consecutive measurements of battery level/temperature

Overview

Time interval (in seconds) between consecutive measurements of battery level and temperature (done by built-in temperature sensor). If the temperature differs from previously reported by a value determined in parameter 12, it will be reported to the Z-Wave controller. In battery mode more significant battery level changes will be reported. Short time intervals mean more frequent communication, which results in shortened battery life. After consecutive FAILED and SUCCESSFUL communication attempts, the Sensor will go to standby mode.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_10_4
Data Type INTEGER
Range 1 to 65535
Default Value 300

12: Temperature measurement hysteresis

Available settings: 1 – 1 000 (each 0.01°C)
Default setting: 50 (0.5°C)
Parameter size: 2 [bytes]

Property Value

Parameter size: 2 [bytes]

The parameter stores a temperature value, above which visual indicator blinks with a colour determined by the parameter 62 settings. By default the visual indicator blinks red.

The main controller does not interpret negative numbers as decimals. That’s why read value may be different than entered. Negative numbers are coded in U2 standard.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_51_2
Data Type INTEGER
Range -10000 to 10000
Default Value 3500

61: Low temperature alarm indicator colour

Parameter stores RGB colour value.

Overview

75: Alarms signalization duration

Turn off alarm after given timeout

Overview

The device is capable of automatically turning off alarm signalization after a certain amount of time. Long lasting alarm may reduce battery life, when constantly signalized.

Available settings:
0 – alarms active indefinitely
1-65535 – time in seconds
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 4 [bytes]

The parameter determines time after which alarm will become “quiet” – still active but the device will go into battery saving mode. Visual or acoustic alarm will be reactivated after time specified in the parameter 76. When alarm status ceases, alarm will be turned off immediately.

The value of 0 means visual and acoustic alarms are active indefinitely. In battery power mode the Sensor will never go to sleep which may shorten battery life significantly.

The parameter is ignored when Parameter 2 is set to 0.

Property Value
Configuration ID config_75_4
Data Type INTEGER
Range 0 to 65535
Default Value 0

76: Alarm signalization reactivation period

Time period after which an alarm will be turned back on

Overview

Available settings:
0 – alarm reactivation inactive
1-65535 – time in seconds
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 4 [bytes]

In case a time period set in parameter 76 is shorter than the one specified in parameter 75, the device will not quiet the alarm, it will remain active.

Property Value
