ES-61 Smoke Sensor

This describes the Z-Wave device ES-61, manufactured by Kaipule Technology Co., Ltd. with the thing type UID of kaipule_es61_00_000. This version of the device is limited to firmware versions below 5.255

The device is in the category of Smoke Detector, defining Smoke detectors.

The ES-61 supports routing. This allows the device to communicate using other routing enabled devices as intermediate routers. This device is unable to participate in the routing of data from other devices.

The ES-61 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.

Overview

ES61 is a battery powered independent photoelectric smoke sensor, mainly used for detecting surrounding smoke concentration. It will make loud audio alert when the concentration exceeds its alarm threshold, and send alarm signal to Control Panel at the same time.

Restore Factory Settings - press the anti-tamper switch for 6 times within 2.5 seconds to restore factory settings.

Inclusion Information

Enter the Inclusion Mode of the gateway, and press the tamper switch 3 times within 1.5s, then the Smoke Sensor will stay in enrolment state until successfully enrolled into network enrolment time out after 30s.

Exclusion Information

Enter the Exclusion Mode of the gateway, and press the tamper switch 3 times within 1.5s, then the Smoke Sensor will be removed after period of time.

Wakeup Information

a) Manual Wake-up - Quickly press tamper switch once, the Smoke Sensor will automatically send wake-up information, and there will be 10s after wake-up to receive gateway setting information.

b) Automatic Wake-up - Default time of automatic wake-up is 24 hours, and there will be 10s after wake-up to receive gateway setting information. The max automatic report time = 24 hours, minimum = 30 min.

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the ES-61 -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Binary Sensor sensor_binary Door Switch
Alarm (smoke) alarm_smoke Door Switch
Alarm (tamper) alarm_tamper   Switch
Battery Level battery-level Battery Number

Binary Sensor

Indicates if a sensor has triggered.

The sensor_binary channel supports the Switch item and is in the Door category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

The following state translation is provided for this channel to the Switch item type -:

Value Label
ON Triggered
OFF Untriggered

Alarm (smoke)

Indicates if a smoke is triggered.

The alarm_smoke channel supports the Switch item and is in the Door category. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

The following state translation is provided for this channel to the Switch item type -:

Value Label
OFF Ok
ON Alarm

Alarm (tamper)

Indicates if the tamper alarm is triggered.

The alarm_tamper channel supports the Switch item. This is a read only channel so will only be updated following state changes from the device.

The following state translation is provided for this channel to the Switch item type -:

Value Label
OFF Ok
ON Alarm

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 3 configuration parameters available in the ES-61. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
1 Basic Set send BASIC Set = Value command
2 Turn Off Light Time Configuration send BASIC Set = Value command & send Basic Set = 0x00 to turn of light
3 PIR Sensor Alarm Elemination Time Configuration Value * 5s
  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 1: Basic Set

send BASIC Set = Value command If there is any device in Association Group 2 the PIR Sensor will send BASIC Set = Value command to control that deivce when the PIR is triggered. Values in the range 1 to 100 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 255.

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

Parameter 2: Turn Off Light Time Configuration

send BASIC Set = Value command & send Basic Set = 0x00 to turn of light If there is any device in Association Group 2 the PIR Sensor will send BASIC Set = Value command to Group 2 and send Basic Set = 0x00 to turn of light after 5 x t seconds- Set value t means to send the BAsic Set command after t seconds. Values in the range 1 to 120 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 20.

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

Parameter 3: PIR Sensor Alarm Elemination Time Configuration

Value * 5s Min time is 5s. Eg If the config is 1, this means it will eliminate alarm after 1 * 5s = 5 seconds Values in the range 1 to 120 may be set.

The manufacturer defined default value is 20.

This parameter has the configuration ID config_3_1 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 ES-61 supports 2 association groups.

Group 1: Lifeline

Send “notification_Report” to the device in Life line group This group supports 1 nodes.

Group 2: Basic Set Command

This group supports 5 nodes.
