Quick start.

Power up your NanoMote One.

Initially NanoMote will be unpowered with its battery blocked by a plastic cover, this plastic cover must be released to initially power up your NanoMote. 

  1. Open up NanoMote cover by twisting the back cover counter-clockwise to unlock.
  2. Remove the battery and plastic cover
  3. Place battery back into battery holder
  4. Place the backcover back on then twist the back cover clockwise to lock the battery in place.

Adding your NanoMote One to your Z-Wave network.

With your  NanoMote One now powered, it’s time to add it to your Z-Wave network.

1. Place your Z-Wave primary controller/gateway enter into pairing/inclusion mode. 

2. Take your NanoMote near to your primary controller.  

3. Double click the NanoMote button, the LED will blink rapidly with a white color. 

4. If your NanoMote has been successfully added to your Z-Wave  network, its white LED will be solid for about 10 seconds, then flash green to indicate it is awake. If the adding was unsuccessful and the red LED will be solid for 2 seconds and then off, repeat the above steps.

5. If your NanoMote does not go to sleep on its own, press and hold for 2 seconds (or until LED turns orange) then release its button to put your NanoMote to sleep.

With your NanoMote One now working as a part of your smart home,  you’ll be able to configure it from your home control software or phone application. Please refer to your software’s user guide for precise instructions on configuring the NanoMote One to your needs.

Advanced Functions.

Send a wake up notification.

In order to send your NanoMote One new configuration commands, OTA, or receive other commands from your Z-Wave controller or gateway, it will need to be woken up.

Enable Wakeup:

  1. Press and hold button for 5 seconds or until LED turns to a green color

    LED will change from:

    Green //at 5 seconds.

  2. Release the button and the LED will flash green rapidly to indicate it is in an awake state.

Disable Wakeup:

  1. Press and hold button for 2 seconds or until LED turns to a orange/red color
  2. Release the button and the LED should be deactivated

Child Lock NanoMote.

You can use the Child Lock function to disable NanoMote control over your devices and scene triggers.

You can toggle child lock on/off by:

  1. Press and hold NanoMote button

    LED will change from:

    Red //at 10 seconds of holding

  2. When LED turns red (after 10 seconds), release its button.
  3. Tap button again while second Red LED is illuminated (you'll have 2 seconds to do so), if successful, the red LED will flash for 1-2 seconds.

Association table of the control buttons.

The NanoMote One supports 3 association groups, all control buttons can activate the configured scenes via sending the Central Scene Notifications to primary controller/gateway (In association group 1). In order to use Association Groups, make sure that your gateway or software can allow you to set these (ie: Vera Group Association Setup), in order to do so, please refer to your gateways manual on setting group association. This will allow the NanoMote One to directly communicate ON/OFF or Dimming commands to your devices without going through your gateway.

Every control button also can send the control commands to control the devices in the other association groups, see the table below:

Testing Health Connectivity.

You can determine the health of your NanoMotes connectivity to your gateway using a manual button press, hold, and release function which is indicated by the LED color. This will help you maximize the battery life based on the health of your NanoMote communication to your gateway. 

You'll be able to see a maximum battery use of 3 months of use over green LED indication listed below.

  1. Press and hold the NanoMotes button for 20 seconds.

    LED will change from:

    Orange //2 seconds
    Green //5 seconds
    Red //10 seconds
    Pink //15 seconds

  2. Release the button on the Pink LED status. It will remain Pink for 2 seconds
  3. With that 2 second of releasing its button, tap its button again to start the health detection process.
  4. The LED will blink pink rapidly, once it finishes the health test, the LED will change to 1 of 3 colors for 2 seconds:

    Red = Bad Health

    Blue = Moderate Health

    Green = Great Health

Note: This function will only work if paired to a Z-Wave network.

Your NanoMote One’s battery.

Your NanoMote One has a internal rechargeable LIR2450 3.6V battery that will allow you to charge it when it is in low battery power. The charger’s output should be a micro USB terminal with the specification of output DC 5V and at least 1A. 

The LED color is red during the charging process, and it will turn to green if the charging is finished.

Notes: If the battery health begins to degrade, you can always purchase a new LIR2450 3.6V Battery to replace the one that comes with this unit.

Removing your NanoMote One from a Z-Wave network.

Your NanoMote can be removed from your Z-Wave network at any time. You'll need to use your Z-Wave network's main controller/gateway. To do this, please refer to the part of their respective manuals that tell you how to remove devices from your network.

1. Put your primary controller into device removal mode.

2. Take your NanoMote near to your primary controller.  

3. Double click the NanoMote button, the LED will become a solid green color.

4. If your NanoMote has been removed from your Z-Wave  network, its LED will begin cycling through rainbow colors. 

Manually factory reset NanoMote.

If you find that your gateway is no longer functioning and you need to pair your NanoMote to a new Z-Wave gateway, perform the steps below to manually factory reset your NanoMote. We recommend that you perform the Removal process instead if your gateway that NanoMote is connected to is still functioning.

To manually factory reset, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the NanoMote button for 20 seconds.

    LED will change from:


  2. Release the button on the second Red LED status. It will remain red for 2 seconds
  3. Tap button again while second Red LED is illuminated (you'll have 2 seconds to do so).

Further steps for different Z-Wave Gateways.

Most gateways will have specific steps to use NanoMote One via group association (direct control), while others will have different steps to use its scene triggers through the gateway directly for more advanced controls. Below are the known steps required for the listed gateways.

  1. Currently none listed at this time. This section will update later in the future.

If your gateway is not listed here, please contact support to see if there are possible steps that can be used on your gateway to make it work.
