Single Paddle Wall Dimmer

Overview

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.

Basic Operation

(Local control)

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

Device Configuration

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.

Parameter Description
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

Overview

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.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_1_1      
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

Overview

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

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_3_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 0
Options Night LED on (0)      
  Night LED off (1)      

4: Invert switch

Invert switch behaviour

Overview

To change the top of the switch to OFF and the bottom of the switch ON, set parameter to 1

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_4_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

Overview

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.

Property Value      
Configuration ID config_19_1      
Data Type INTEGER   Default Value 2
Options No flicker (0)      
  Flicker all time (1)      
  One second flicker (2)      

1: Group 1

Group 1 Control

Overview

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
