TZ35S Single Paddle Wall Dimmer
This describes the Z-Wave device TZ35S, manufactured by TKB Home with the thing type UID of
Single Paddle Wall Dimmer
TZ35S Wall Mounted Switch
The TZ35S Wall Mounted 3-Way Dimmer Switch is a component of the lighting control system.
This Wall Mounted Dimmer Switch is designed to work with other Z-Wave enabled devices. Z-Wave node of other types can be added to the system and will also act as repeaters if they support this function of repeating the signal received to other modules in the system.
As part of a Z-Wave network, the TZ35S will also act as a wireless repeater to insure the commands intended for another device in the network are received.
The switch on the TZ35S allows the user to:
- Turn ON/OFF or Dimming the attached load
- Include or exclude the module from the Z-Wave system
- Control other Z-Wave enabled devices
Also, when a controller prompts you to “Send Node ID” or to “Press Button on Unit”, quickly tap the switch ON or OFF once to satisfy those instructions.
- Tapping top of the switch turns the load attached ON
- Tapping bottom of switch turns the load attached OFF
- Pressing and holding the switch will allow dimming and brightening of the attached load or the other Z-Wave dimmers if associated.
Caution: When dimmed to the lowest setting, even though the load looks like its off it still has power. Tap bottom of switch to turn off completely. It is best to turn off the power at the circuit breaker to service the load. Returns to known ON/OFF state after power loss.
Note: Upon restoration of power after a power loss, the switch returns to previous known state.
Maximum load: 300W
Including TZ35 to the network
Including to the network (must be installed in its permanent location, not on test bench)
- Setup the controller you are using to include a device into network.
- Tap either the top or bottom of the switch once.
Excluding from the network
- Setup the controller you are using to exclude a device from the network.
- Tap either the top or the bottom of the switch once.
- Pressing On/Off button three times within 1.5 seconds will enter inclusion mode.
- Within 5 second,press On/Off button again for 1 seconds until LED is off
- IDs are excluded.
The following table summarises the channels available for the TZ35S Single Paddle Wall Dimmer.
|Channel||Channel Id||Channel Type UID||Category||Item Type|
Restore Last Value
Restore Last Dimming level on ON.
|Data Type||BOOLEAN||Default Value||true|
|Options||Restore Last Value (true)|
|Restore Full Brightness (false)|
The following table provides a summary of the configuration parameters available in the TZ35S Single Paddle Wall Dimmer. Detailed information on each parameter can be found below.
|1: Ignore start level bit||Ignore start level bit|
|3: Night light||Indicates if LED is on when load is ON|
|4: Invert switch||Invert switch behaviour|
|19: LED transmission indicator||LED flickering during transmission|
|1: Group 1||Group 1 Control|
1: Ignore start level bit
Ignore start level bit
Set ignore start level bit when transmitting dim commands
- Parameter No.: 1
- Length: 1 byte
- Valid values = 0 or 1 (default 1)
The TZ35S can send dim commands to Z-Wave enabled dimmers. The dim command has a start level embedded in it. A dimmer receiving this command will start dimming from the start level. However, the command also has a bit that indicates whether the dimmer should ignore the start level. If the bit is set to 1, the dimmer will ignore the start level and instead start dimming from its current level. If this bit is set to 0 the dimmer will not ignore the start level.
|Data Type||INTEGER||Default Value||1|
|Options||Don't ignore start level (0)|
|Ignore start level (1)|
3: Night light
Indicates if LED is on when load is ON
The LED on the TZ35S will be by default turn ON when the load attached is turned OFF. To make the LED turn ON when the load attached is turned ON instead set parameter 3 to a value of 1
|Data Type||INTEGER||Default Value||0|
|Options||Night LED on (0)|
|Night LED off (1)|
4: Invert switch
Invert switch behaviour
To change the top of the switch to OFF and the bottom of the switch ON, set parameter to 1
|Data Type||INTEGER||Default Value||0|
|Options||ON command on TOP (0)|
|OFF command on TOP (1)|
19: LED transmission indicator
LED flickering during transmission
The switch will flicker its LED when it is transmitting to any of its 2 groups. This flickering can be set to not flicker at all (set to 0), to flicker the entire time it is transmitting (set to 1), or to flicker for only 1 second when it begins transmitting (set to 2). By default, the switch is set to flicker for only 1 second. Each configuration parameter can be set to its default setting by setting the default bit in the configuration set command. see your controller’s instructions on how to do this(and if it supports it). All configuration commands will be reset to their default state when the switch is reset from the Z-Wave system.
|Data Type||INTEGER||Default Value||2|
|Options||No flicker (0)|
|Flicker all time (1)|
|One second flicker (2)|
1: Group 1
Group 1 Control
If you associate a Z-Wave device into Group 1, you can turn that device ON and OFF by tapping the top or bottom of the switch once. The load attached to TZ35S will also turn on and off.
You can brighten the controlled device by pushing and holding the top of the switch , dim by pushing and holding the bottom of the switch.
You can associate up to 5 Z-Wave devices into Group 1
