The NZW31 supports routing. This allows the device to communicate using other routing enabled devices as intermediate routers. This device is also able to participate in the routing of data from other devices.

Overview

Inovelli’s In-Wall Smart Dimmer not only has the ability to control lights from anywhere in the world, but it acts as a Z-Wave signal repeater, which amplifies your Z-Wave signal, growing the capabilities of your network.

In addition, it has scene control enabled, which allows you to double tap the switch to activate a Z-Wave scene. An example would be a bedtime scene, which turns off all lights, locks the door(s) and sets the temperature to 68 degrees.

Simplifying lives, one smart home product at a time… that’s Inovelli.

Inclusion Information

Including Steps:

  • This will vary based on the HUB/Gateway you’re using, but you need to go one (1) step before putting your HUB/Gateway in inclusion process — once you are one (1) step away from physically starting the inclusion/pairing process — THEN STOP!
  • Walk down to your circuit breaker and flip on the power (you will now have 30 seconds to physically start the inclusion process on your HUB/Gateway)
  • While next to the breaker, start the inclusion process and your HUB/Gateway will automatically start looking for devices
  • Wait for auto-inclusion to do its thing. Your switch will automatically include/pair to your HUB/Gateway
    • If successful, your device will flash twice (NOTE: Auto-Inclusion will time out after 30 seconds)
    • If the switch does not flash within 30 seconds, please use the alternate method of pairing which is pressing the top (UP) button 6x within 2 seconds
  • Confirm that your HUB/Gateway shows the switch

Congratulations, you now have a remote controlled switch!

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please ensure your switch is within range of your HUB. 95% of the pairing/including failures stem from this issue. Best practice is to start with Z-Wave products near your HUB and build your network out. The more Z-Wave devices, the more efficient your network.**

Exclusion Information

  • Press the Top (UP) Button on your NZW31 six (6) times within 2 seconds
