Quick Start


Pre-Installation of Door / Window Sensor 7.


  • Open the cover by pressing the clip on the side and pulling the cover upwards.
  •  Insert a fresh 1 * 1/2 AA battery, but pay attention to the polarity



Install your Door / Window Sensor 7.


The sensor can be mounted either on the moving part or on the fixed part of a door or a window. Mounting can be accomplished either using the tape by peeling off the protection foil or using two screws with the holes inside the battery compartment. If the tilt detection on a window (only normal windows, no roof windows) shall be used the sensor device must be placed on the moving part of the window and the magnet on the window frame. The sensor comes with two types of magnets:



  • The standard magnet covered by plastic part, mountable beside the sensor. Make sure the two indicating lines on sensor enclosure and magnet are opposite to each other. The image on the right-hand-side shows the position of magnet and sensor body.
  • A slim "naked" magnet to be mounted behind the sensor in case the sensor body is placed on the side of a window.
  • To use the tilting function, the opening angle of the window must be at least 5° or greater.

For German style windows there the window sits on top of the window frame mounting on the side of the window is highly recommended. If no tilting detection is used, the sensor can be placed on any position of the door or the window. In case tilting detection is desired the sensor should be placed on the upper side of the window.


Installation of the flat magnet

When installing the flat magnet in a hidden location, make sure that it is on the longer side as seen from the mark on the Door / Windows Sensor 7.





Adding your Door / Windows Sensor 7 to Z-Wave network.


  1. Set your Z-Wave controller into pairing mode.
  2. Triple-click the tamper switch on Door / Window Sensor 7 - this begins to blink five times
  3. After completion of the inclusion, it lights up once before it goes out.
  4. Close the cover

    Note: Closing the cover is important! If the housing is not closed, the sensor is permanently awake. Only when the cover is closed does the sensor change to the idle state.




Functions of Door / Window Sensor 7.

Open/Close


Once installed the sensor will report "open" and "close" status changes to a central Z-Wave controller using notification commands. 

  • Open/Close utilizes Notification Report.


Tilt detection

The tilt detection allows reporting the way a window is opened. This is accomplished using the command class "binary sensor - tilt-type". In case the window is closed or opened without tilting the tilt sensor will report "Off". In case the window is tilted an "On" is reported. The angle of inclination of the window must be at least 5°.

  • Tilt Sensor uses Binary Sensor Report.
  • Tilt Sensor reports Open when the window is opened, moving, and tilted at the same time.
    • Binary Sensor Report = 0xFF
  • When Window is closed, both Tilt Sensor and Window access will report CLOSED.
    • Binary Sensor Report = 0x00




Advances functions.


Screw Terminal.


With parameter #1 you can choose between the internal magnet or the external connections such as push buttons or dry contact sensors.


 

  • #1: Not used.
  • #2: Not used.
  • #3: Digital Input
  • #4: Ground


Digital + Ground is used to connect an external dry contact mechanism to control scenes.

  • Push button
  • Water sensor probes
  • External magnet detection
  • etc.


Note: Please note that the contact Digital Input (#3) and Ground (#4) is a normally open (NO) contact. Closing the contact sends out a command (Open or Close). 


Door / Window Sensor 7 as Dry Contact Sensor.

Using configuration commands the source of "open" and "close" events can be chosen between the internal magnet detector or external dry contact connected on terminal #3 and #4.

Scene Controller.

When activated by configuration parameter #13 the device can perform as a scene controller. The external dry contact will then act as a scene controller with a total of 7 scenes that can be activated:

  1. Contact Pressed 1 time
  2. Contact Pressed 2 time
  3. Contact Pressed 3 time
  4. Contact Pressed 4 time
  5. Contact Pressed 5 time
  6. Contact held down
  7. Contact released

Communication test.

This utilizes the Power Level command class to determine the health between the Door / Window Sensor 7 and your Z-Wave gateway. This will tell you if the Door / Window Sensor 7 has a healthy connection to your system and is a great method of debugging connectivity issues.

  1. Set Parameter #4 to value #1
  2. Double click the Tamper Switch.
  3. Result:
    • Blinks once - success
    • Blinks 5x times - failure



Firmware-Update over the Air.


This device is capable of receiving a new firmware 'over the air'. The update function needs to be supported by the central controller. Once the controller starts the update process, perform the following action to confirm the firmware update:

  1. Wake Up the device by removing the cover. 
  2. The hit the tamper switch once.



Send a wake up notification.


In order to send your sensors new configuration commands from your Z-Wave controller or gateway, it will need to be woken up. 

  1. Wake Up the device by removing the cover. 
  2. The hit the tamper switch once.


Note: Door / Window Sensor 7 remains awake until the housing is closed again.



Remove your Door / Window Sensor 7 from Z-Wave network.


Your sensor 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 your gateways respective manual that tells you how to remove devices from your network. 

  1. Set your Z-Wave controller into unpair mode.
  2. Triple-click the tamper switch on Door / Window Sensor 7 within 1.5 seconds - this will cause the LED to blink five times.
  3. After a successful exclusion, it will light up its LED for 2 seconds then deactivate.



Reset your Door / Windows Sensor 7.


This device also allows being reset without any involvement of a Z-Wave controller. This procedure should only be used when the primary controller is inoperable. 


To manually factory reset:

  1. Remove the cover of Door / Window Sensor 7
  2. Press and hold tamper switch for 5 seconds until the red LED blinks.
  3. Release the tamper switch
  4. Immediately press and hold the tamper switch for 5 seconds until the red LED blinks.
