HM-HS1WL-Z Smart Water Leakage Sensor

This describes the Z-Wave device HM-HS1WL-Z, manufactured by Zipato with the thing type UID of zipato_hmhs1wlz_00_000.

The device is in the category of Sensor, defining Device used to measure something.

The HM-HS1WL-Z 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 HM-HS1WL-Z 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

INTRODUCTION

Smart Water Leakage sensor adopts Z-Wave wireless module. Super low power consumption circuit design ensures the long battery lifespan. Separate design of body and sensor efficiently prevents the influence resulted from high humidity. High precision and sensitivity applicable for basement, machine room, hotel, water tower, pool, swimming pool, solar, kitchen, bathroom and other places may have water leakage or water overflow.

Working voltage: DC3V (2 x AAA battery)
Static current: 5uA
Alarm current: 35mA
Networking: Z-Wave
Wireless networking distance: 70 (open area)
Working temperature: -10°C~+50°C
Working humidity: max 95%RH
Body dimensions: 76 x 36.6 x 16.5 mm
Sensor dimensions: 28.3 x 26.5 x 12.2 mm

WARNINGS
1. Install water leakage sensor at areas where it may leak.
2. Don’t install water leakage sensor at position of rainwater, lampblack, water vapor, etc.
3. Don’t install water leakage sensor at water immersed position.

Inclusion Information

INSTALLATION STEP 1:
Remove battery insulation film to power it on

INSTALLATION STEP 2:
1. DEVICE INCLUSION
- Click [Add] icon in Z-Wave PC Controller Program.
- Press the networking button 3 times within 1.5s, Green LED is blinking 3 times within 1 second.
- If Inclusion Process is successful, Green led will turn off.

Exclusion Information

DEVICE EXCLUSION
- Click [Remove] icon in Z-Wave PC Controller Program
- Press the networking button 3 times within 1.5s
- If Exclusion Process is successful, Green led is Blinking 6 times, then turn off.

FACTORY RESET
Long press the networking button, then power on (put into the battery), ID code is clear and reset to factory settings.

Wakeup Information

The manual doesn’t say, but I’ve found that tapping the tamper sensor once makes the device blink and that seems to wake it up.

Channels

The following table summarises the channels available for the HM-HS1WL-Z -:

Channel Channel Id Category Item Type
Binary Sensor sensor_binary Door Switch
Alarm (burglar) alarm_burglar Door Switch
Alarm (flood) alarm_flood Door 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 (burglar)

Indicates if the burglar alarm is triggered.

The alarm_burglar 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 (flood)

Indicates if the flood alarm is triggered.

The alarm_flood 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

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 HM-HS1WL-Z supports 5 association groups.

Group 1: Lifeline

Lifeline association group This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 2: Root Device group (Binary Sensor)

Root Device group (Binary Sensor) This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 3: Root Device group (Binary Sensor)

Root Device group (Binary Sensor) This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 4: Root Device group (Notification)

Root Device group (Notification) This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 5: Root Device group (Notification)

Root Device group (Notification) This group supports 5 nodes.
