Quick start.


Getting your Smart Boost Timer Switch up and running requires you to wire your load and power before adding it to your Z-Wave network. The following instructions will tell you how to add your Smart Boost Timer Switch to your Z-Wave network via Aeotec by Aeon Labs’ Z-Stick and general instructions if using an existing gateway/controller. If you are using other products as your main Z-Wave controller, such as a Z-Wave gateway, please refer to the part of their respective manual that tells you how to add new devices to your network.


Wiring your Smart Boost Timer Switch.


Wiring incoming power supply to Switch (To Incoming Supply / Input Power side):

  1. Ensure that no power is present in the AC Live (80 - 250VAC) and Neutral wire and test them with a Voltage Screwdriver or Multimeter to make sure.
  2. Connect AC Live (80 - 250VAC) wire to L terminal over Incoming power.
  3. Connect AC Neutral wire to N terminal over incoming power.
  4. Connect Ground wire to Earth terminal over incoming power.
  5. Make sure to screw in all terminals tight so that the wires do not slip out during use.


Wiring your Load to Switch (To Appliance / Load side):

  1. Connect Live input wire from your Load to L terminal on the load side.
  2. Connect Neutral input wire from your Load to N terminal on the load side.
  3. Connect Ground input wire from your Load to Earth terminal on the load side.
  4. Make sure to screw in all terminals tight so that the wires do not slip out during use.



Pairing Smart Boost Timer Switch to your Network.


[Need to confirm ACTION BUTTON HERE IMAGE NEEDED]


If you're using an existing gateway:


1. Place your gateway or controller into Z-Wave pair or inclusion mode. (Please refer to your controller/gateway manual on how to do this)

2. Press the Action Button on your Switch once and the LED will flash a green LED.

3. If your switch has been successfully linked to your network, its LED will become solid green for 2 seconds. If linking was unsuccessful, the LED will return to a rainbow gradient.



If you’re using a Z-Stick:



1. Decide on where you want your Smart Boost Timer Switch to be placed and plug it into a wall outlet.

2. If your Z-Stick is plugged into a gateway or a computer, unplug it.

3. Take your Z-Stick to your Smart Boost Timer Switch.
4. Press the Action Button on your Z-Stick.
5. Press the Action Button on your Smart Boost Timer Switch
6. If Smart Boost Timer Switch has been successfully added to your Z-Wave network, its RGB LED will be solid. If the adding was unsuccessful, the red LED will be on for 2 seconds and then remain colorful gradient status, repeat the instructions from step 4.

7. Press the Action Button on the Z-Stick to take it out of inclusion mode and then return it to your gateway or computer.





Removing your Smart Boost Timer Switch from a Z-Wave network.


Your Smart Boost Timer 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 a 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. Place your gateway or controller into Z-Wave unpair or exclusion mode. (Please refer to your controller/gateway manual on how to do this)

2. Press the Action Button on your Switch.

3. If your switch has been successfully unlinked from your network, its LED will become a rainbow gradient. If linking was unsuccessful, the LED will become green or purple depending on how your LED mode is set.


If you’re using a Z-Stick:




1. If your Z-Stick is plugged into a gateway or a computer, unplug it.

2. Take your Z-Stick to your Smart Boost Timer Switch.
3. Press the Action Button on your Z-Stick.
4. Press the Action Button on your Smart Boost Timer Switch.
5. If your Smart Boost Timer Switch has been successfully removed from your network, its RGB LED will remain colourful gradient status. If the removal was unsuccessful, the RGB LED will still be solid (Energy mode state when the output is on or Night light mode state when the output load is off), repeat the instructions from step 3.

6. Press the Action Button on the Z-Stick to take it out of removal mode.

More Advanced Configurations.


The Smart Boost Timer Switch has a longer list of device configurations that you can do with Smart Boost Timer Switch. These are not exposed well in most gateways, but at the least you can manually set configurations through most Z-Wave gateways available. These configuration options may not be available in a few gateways.


You can find the paper manual and configuration sheet at the bottom of the pdf file by clicking here.


If you have any questions on how to set these, please contact support and let them know what gateway you are using.
