Wall Controller 2.



Popp Wall Controller 2 has been crafted to power connected lighting using Z-Wave. It is powered by Popp technology. 


Before purchasing make sure to contact your Z-Wave Gateway/Controller manufacturer to determine if this device is compatible, typically most Z-Wave gateways will be generically compatible to Sensor type devices. The technical specifications of Wall Controller 2 can be viewed at that link.



Familiarize yourself with your Wall Controller 2.

 


Quick start.

 

Getting your Wall Controller 2 up and running is as simple as installing it and linking it to your Z-Wave network. The following instructions tell you how to add your Wall Controller 2 to your Z-Wave network using an existing gateway. 

Installation of Wall Controller 2:

Use the screws or double-sided tape to fixate the Wall Controller 2 to the position or wall that you wish to use Wall Controller 2 on.


Pair Wall Controller 2 using an existing gateway:

  1. Set your Z-Wave gateway into pair/include mode. (Please refer to your Z-Wave gateway instruction manual).
  2. Set your Wall Controller 2 into Management Mode.
    Press all 4 buttons for 5 seconds - The LED should flash green while it is in management mode.
  3. Within 10 seconds of step 2, tap Button 1 once.
  4. Wait 10 seconds for Management mode to timeout, this is indicated when the green LED stops flashing.


Placement of Wall Controller 2:

Wall Controller 2 is best placed in an area that is shadowed to keep direct sunlight from heating up the sensors providing inaccurate readings. Although this device is solar powered, placing this device in indirect sunlight will produce enough power even if it is in the shadows for a full day.



Product Usage.


Depending on the button mode and operating modes configured using the configuration parameters the key fob can be used in different ways.

Button modes:

4 Groups are controlled with single button (parameter 1/2 = 0) The four buttons 1-4 control one single control group each: 1->A, 2->B, 3->C, 4->D. Single click turns devices in the control group on, double click turns them off. Click and hold can be used for dimming.












2 Groups are controlled with two buttons (parameter 1/2 = 1) The buttons 1 and 3 control the control group A (button on turns on, buttons turns off), the buttons 2 and 4 control the control group B (button on turns on, buttons turns off). In case dimmers are controlled, holding down the larger button will dim up, holding down the smaller button will dim down the load. Releasing the button will stop the dimming function.













4 Groups are controlled with two buttons and double click (parameter 1/2 = 2) This mode enhances the previous mode and allows to control two further control groups C and D using double clicks.

 













Operation Mode:

Operation mode allows you to control devices, this is used by default. Wall Controller 2 will always automatically bring itself back to Operation Mode from Management mode.


The devices supports 8 different operating modes - this means that the command for control are sent out when pressing Wall Controller 2s buttons. Operating modes either directly control other devices or issue central scene activation commands to the connected Z-Wave controller. 


Operating modes for direct device control are (Group Association):

  • Direct Control of associated devices with On/Off/Dim commands (parameter 11...14 = 1). Devices are controlled using Basic Set On/Off commands and SwitchMultilevel Dim Start/Stop. 
    • Direct Control of associated devices with only On/Off commands (parameter 11...14 = 2). Devices are controlled using only Basic Set On/Off commands. On dimming Up event On is sent, on dimming Down Off is sent.
    • Switch All commands (parameter 11...14 = 3) In this mode a all neighbouring devices will receive Switch All Set On/Off command and interpret it according to their membership in SwitchAll groups.
    • Door Lock Control (parameter 11...14 = 7) This modes allows direct control (open/close) of electronic door locks using secure communication.

Operating modes for scene activation are:

  • Direct Activation of pre-configured scenes (parameter 11...14 = 5) Associated devices in an association group are controlled by individual commands defines by Z-Wave command class Scene Controller Configuration. This mode enhances mode Direct Control of associated devices with On/Off/Dim commands. Please turn the button mode to "separate" to allows different scene id on every button.
  • Scene Activation in IP Gateway (parameter 11...14 = 4) If configured correctly the buttons can trigger a scene in a gateway. The scene number triggered is a combination of the group number and the action performed on the button and has always two digits. The group number defines the upper digit of the scene number, the action the lower digit. 
    • The following actions are possible:
      • 1 = On
      • 2 = Off
      • 3 = Dim Up Start
      • 4 = Dim Down Start
      • 5 = Dim Up Stop
      • 6 = Dim Down Stop
    • Example: Clicking/double clicking the button will issue scene trigger: scene 11 (button 1 click, event on), scene 12 (button double click 1, event off, single button control is used in this example)

    • Activation of Central Scenes (parameter 11...14 = 8,Default) Z-Wave Plus introduces a new process for scene activation - the central scene control. Pushing a button and releasing a button sends a certain command to the central controller using the lifeline association group (Group 1). This allows Wall Controller 2 to react to both button push and button release.


Management Mode:

When set into Management Mode, it will stay in this mode for 10 seconds before automatically reverting to Operation Mode if no activity is done.


To activate management mode:

  • Press and hold all 4 buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
  • LED indicator will flash green while it is in management mode.


Management Mode button functions:

Button 1 - Re-Inclusion/Exclusion: Every re-inclusion or exclusion attempt is confirmed by hitting this button. Any button press stops the mode as well.

Button 2 - Send Node Information Frame and Wake up Notification. (see explanation below)

Button 3 - Factory Default Reset. After clicking on button 3 keep button 4 pushed for >4 seconds

Button 4 - Enter into Association mode to assign target devices to one of the four association. Refer to the manuals section about association for more information how to set and unset association groups.

 



Advanced functions.


Node Information Frame

The Node Information Frame (NIF) is the business card of a Z-Wave device. It contains information about the device type and the technical capabilities. The inclusion and exclusion of the device is confirmed by sending out a Node Information Frame. Beside this it may be needed for certain network operations to send out a Node Information Frame. To issue a NIF execute the following action:

     - Pressing Button 2 in management mode will issue a Node Information Frame.

 


Removing your Wall Controller 2 from a Z-Wave network.


Wall Controller 2 can be removed from your Z-Wave network at any time.You’ll need to use a Z-Wave primary controller to do this and the following instructions which will tell you how to do this using your existing Z-Wave Network.

This method can be used with any Primary Z-Wave Controller even if it is not directly paired to Wall Controller 2.


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. Set your Wall Controller 2 into Management Mode.
Press all 4 buttons for 5 seconds - The LED should flash green while it is in management mode.

3.Within 10 seconds of step 2, tap Button 1 once.



Manually Factory Reset  Wall Controller 2.


This method is not fully advised unless your gateway has failed, and you do not yet have another gateway to perform a general unpair on Wall Controller 2.

  1. Set your Wall Controller 2 into Management Mode.
    Press all 4 buttons for 5 seconds - The LED should flash green while it is in management mode.
  2. Tap Button 3
  3. Immediately after, press and hold Button 4 for 5 seconds.
 


Association Groups.


Group Association is a specific function in Z-Wave that allows you to tell the Wall Controller 2 who it can speak to. Some devices may only have 1 group association meant for the gateway, or multiple group associations that can be used for specific events. This type of function isn't used too often, but when it is available, you may be able to use it to directly communicate to Z-Wave devices instead of controlling a scene within a gateway which can have unforeseen delays.


Some gateways have the ability to set Group Associations to devices that have these special events and functions. Typically this is used to allow your gateway to update the status of Wall Controller 2 instantly.


By default, your primary gateway should have been associated to the Wall Controller 2 automatically during the pairing of your sensor. For any case you have a Secondary Z-Wave Controller, you'll need to associate it to your Wall Controller 2 in order for your secondary controller to update its status.
