Device Overview

Aeotec Smart Switch 7 (SS7) has been crafted to power connected lighting using SmartStart, S2 framework, and Z-Wave Plus. It is powered by Aeotec’s S2 technology. 

  • Smart Switch 7 is intended for indoor use in dry locations only. Do not use in damp, moist, and/or wet locations.
  • Max-amperage: 15 amps for ZW175-A
  • May-amperage: 10 amps for ZW175-C
Inclusion Information

Getting your Smart Switch up and running is as simple as plugging it into a wall socket and adding it to your Z-Wave network.

  1. Set your Z-Wave Controller into its 'Add Device' mode in order to add the product into your Z-Wave system. Refer to the Controller's manual if you are unsure of how to perform this step.
  2. Power your Smart Switch 7 to any outlet; its LED will be breathing a blue light if it is ready to be paired.
  3. Click Action Button 2 times slowly to set your Smart Switch 7 into pair mode.
  4. If your Z-Wave Controller supports S2 encryption, enter the first 5 digits of DSK into your Controller's interface if it is requested. The DSK is printed on its Smart Switch 7.
    a) If pairing succeeds, it will become a bright blue light for 2 seconds. Smart Switch 7 is now a part of your Z-Wave home control system. You can configure it and its automation via your Z-Wave system; please refer to your software's user guide for precise instructions.
    b) If pairing fails, it will light a solid bright red light for 2 seconds and then return to a breathing blue light; repeat steps 1 to 4 if this happens.
Exclusion Information

Your Smart Switch can be removed from your Z-Wave network at any time. You’ll need to use your Z-Wave network’s main controller to do this and the following instructions will tell you how to do this using Aeotec by Aeon Labs’ Z-Stick or Minimote controller.

If you are using other products as your main Z-Wave controller, please refer to the part of their respective manuals that tells you how to remove devices from your network.

If you're using an existing gateway:

  1. Set your Z-Wave Controller into its 'Remove Device' / 'Unpair Device' mode in order to remove the product from your Z-Wave system. Refer to the Controller's manual if you are unsure of how to perform this step.
  2. Make sure the product is powered. If not, plug it into a wall socket and power it on.
  3. Click Action Button 2 times quickly; it will bright violet light up to 2s.
    a. If Removing fails, it will bright red light for 2 seconds and then turn back to Load Indicator Mode; repeat steps 1 to 3. Contact us for further support if needed.
    b. If Removing succeeds, it will become breathing blue light. Smart Switch 7 is removed from the Z-Wave network successfully and is ready to be paired again.

Parameter 101
Bitmask
LabelTimed report enable/disable
DescriptionConfigure timed report
Word Size4
Default Value0
Allowable Range0 to 15
Overview

Sets what sensors should be reported at a timed interval. This can be used at the same time as threshold reporting to allow both thresholds and timed reports to be used.

Value Description
1 kWh (Accumulated Power)
2 Watt (Power used at the time of the report)
4 Current
8 Voltage

The values in the table above should be added together. 

For example:

If you want kWh and Watt only, you would add 1 + 2 = 3.

If you want all values (current, voltage, watt, kWh) reported at an interval, you would add 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 = 15.

If 0 is set to this parameter setting, this would completely disable timed reports. (Parameter 111 does not need to be set).
