Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 6 configuration parameters available in the WD500Z-1. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
1 Dim Start Level A dimmer receiving this command will start dimming from that start level if this bit is set to 0. If the bit is set to 1, the dimmer will ignore the start level and instead start dimming from its current level.
3 LED Indication The WD500Z-1 will flicker its LED when it is transmitting to any of its groups.
4 Invert Switch To change the top of the switch to OFF and the bottom to ON change parameter to 1.
14 Enable Shade Control Group 2 The switch can control shade control devices if this parameter is set to 1
15 Enable Shade Control Group 3 The switch can control shade control devices if this parameter is set to 1.
19 LED Transmission Indication The WD500Z-1 will flicker its LED when it is transmitting to any of its groups. Parameter set to 0 = not flicker Parameter set to 1 = flicker the entire time of transmitting Parameter set to 2 = flicker for only 1 second.
  Switch All Mode Set the mode for the switch when receiving SWITCH ALL commands
