ZS5101 Shock Sensor

This describes the Z-Wave device ZS5101, manufactured by Vision Security with the thing type UID of vision_zs5101_00_000.

The ZS5101 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 ZS5101 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

ZS5101 detects the vibrations made by an intruder trying to break a window or door, and also detect tamper situations, it will send Z-Wave signal when vibrations or tamper situations are detected.

Inclusion Information

For “Inclusion” in (adding to) a network: Put the Z-Wave Interface Controller into “inclusion” mode, and following its instruction to add the ZS5101 to your controller. To get in the “inclusion” mode, the distance between sensor and controller is suggested to be in one meter. Press the program/tamper switch of ZS5101 for 1 second at least to be included. The LED on the ZS5101 should go off, if not, please try again

Exclusion Information

For “Exclusion” from (removing from) a network: Put the Z-Wave Interface Controller into “exclusion” mode, and following its instruction to delete the ZS5101 from your controller. Press the program/tamper switch of ZS5101 for 1 second at least to be excluded.

Wakeup Information

“Awake” mode: it is to leave the “Sleep” mode by removing the cover of ZS5101, to allow the Z-Wave Interface Controller to do “Inclusion”, “Exclusion”, “Association” and to reply and receive the commands from controller.

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the ZS5101 -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Binary Sensor sensor_binary Door Switch
Shock Alarm alarm_access Door Switch
Tamper Alarm 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

Shock Alarm

Indicates if the access control alarm is triggered.

The alarm_access 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

Tamper Alarm

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 device has no configuration parameters configured.

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 ZS5101 supports 1 association group.

Group 1: Lifeline

This group supports 1 nodes.
