SmoothRemote SmoothRemote

This describes the Z-Wave device SmoothRemote, manufactured by INNOVUS with the thing type UID of innovus_smoothremote_00_000.

The SmoothRemote 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.

No device information is provided in the database. Consider updating the database to improve the documentation.

Channels

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

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Battery Level battery-level Battery Number

Battery Level

Represents the battery level as a percentage (0-100%). Bindings for things supporting battery level in a different format (e.g. 4 levels) should convert to a percentage to provide a consistent battery level reading.

The battery-level channel supports the Number item and is in the Battery category.

Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 4 configuration parameters available in the SmoothRemote. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
0 Button Press Time Button Press Time, time for presses on a single button to register as seperate and not part of a sequence, measured in 0.01s. 0 is interpreted as a 1.
1 Button Multiple Press Time Button Multiple Press Time, time for presses on multiple buttons to register as seperate and not part of a sequence, measured in 0.01 s. 0 is interpreted as a 1.
2 Button Hold Time Button Hold Time, time for presses to register as being held down in 0.01s. 0 is interpreted as a 1.
3 Network Update Interval Network Update Interval, time between network updates in 256 seconds. Disabled if 0.
  Wakeup Interval Sets the interval at which the device will accept commands from the controller
  Wakeup Node Sets the node ID of the device to receive the wakeup notifications

Parameter 0: Button Press Time

Button Press Time, time for presses on a single button to register as seperate and not part of a sequence, measured in 0.01s. 0 is interpreted as a 1. Warning: All Configuration values have serious effects on the functioning of the device and as such shouldn’t be changed unless one is certain of the consequences. Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 50.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_0_1 and is of type INTEGER.

Parameter 1: Button Multiple Press Time

Button Multiple Press Time, time for presses on multiple buttons to register as seperate and not part of a sequence, measured in 0.01 s. 0 is interpreted as a 1. Warning: All Configuration values have serious effects on the functioning of the device and as such shouldn’t be changed unless one is certain of the consequences. Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 100.

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

Parameter 2: Button Hold Time

Button Hold Time, time for presses to register as being held down in 0.01s. 0 is interpreted as a 1. Warning: All Configuration values have serious effects on the functioning of the device and as such shouldn’t be changed unless one is certain of the consequences. Values in the range 0 to 255 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 40.

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

Parameter 3: Network Update Interval

Network Update Interval, time between network updates in 256 seconds. Disabled if 0. Warning: All Configuration values have serious effects on the functioning of the device and as such shouldn’t be changed unless one is certain of the consequences. Values in the range 0 to 65535 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 168.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_3_2 and is of type INTEGER.

Wakeup Interval

The wakeup interval sets the period at which the device will listen for messages from the controller. This is required for battery devices that sleep most of the time in order to conserve battery life. The device will wake up at this interval and send a message to the controller to tell it that it can accept messages - after a few seconds, it will go back to sleep if there is no further communications.

This setting is defined in seconds. It is advisable not to set this interval too short or it could impact battery life. A period of 1 hour (3600 seconds) is suitable in most instances.

Note that this setting does not affect the devices ability to send sensor data, or notification events.

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

Wakeup Node

When sleeping devices wake up, they send a notification to a listening device. Normally, this device is the network controller, and normally the controller will set this automatically to its own address. In the event that the network contains multiple controllers, it may be necessary to configure this to a node that is not the main controller. This is an advanced setting and should not be changed without a full understanding of the impact.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_node 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 device does not support associations.
