Operating Instructions
Introduction
The Z-URCTM 550EU Z-Wave AV Controller is a universal AV remote
and also a Z-Wave controller (Figure 1). As a universal remote, the ZURCTM 550EU replaces all your AV remotes through its built-in IR
code database or IR code learning. As a Z-Wave controller, the ZURCTM 550EU works with Z-Wave enabled devices, support multichannel command class devices and controls their on/off or up/down
individually, as a Group, or via a pre-configured Scene.
A perfect kit of Z-URCTM 550EU and ZXT-300EU (Z-Wave-to-AV IR
Extender). It works with any Z-Wave compliant controller or gateway
by translating Z-Wave Simple AV command to IR control code.

WIRELESS INFORMATION
Wireless range:
This device has an open air line of sight transmission distance of 100
feet which complies with the Z-Wave standards. Performance can vary
depending on the amount of objects in between Z-Wave devices such
as walls and furniture. Every Z-Wave device set up in your house will
act as a signal repeater allowing devices to talk to each other and find
alternate routes in the case of a reception dead spot.
Radio frequency limitations:
1. Each wall or object (i.e.: refrigerator, bookshelf, large TV, etc) can
reduce the maximum range of 65 feet by up to 25 to 30%.
2. Plasterboard and wooden walls block less of the radio signal then
concrete, brick or tile walls which will have more of an effect on
signal strength.
3. Wall mounted Z-Wave devices will also suffer a loss of range as
they are housed in metal junction boxes which could reduce the
range by up to 25 to 30%.

accessories are included.
•
Z-URCTM 550EU: Z-Wave Enabled Universal Remote Control
WARNINGS
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate
the equipment.
- RISK OF FIRE
- RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK
- RISK OF BURNS
Exercise extreme caution when using Z-Wave devices to control
appliances. Operation of the Z-Wave device may be in a different room
then the controlled appliances, also an unintentional activation may
occur if the wrong button on the remote is pressed. Z-Wave devices
may automatically be powered on due to timed event programming.
Depending upon the appliance, these unattended or unintentional
operations could possible result in a hazardous condition. For these
reasons we recommend the following:
1. Assign Z-Wave controlled appliances to group number 9 to 16 on
the Z- URCTM as the likelihood of unintentionally turning on of the
appliance will be reduced significantly because the "SHIFT"
button is also needed to activate groups 9 through 16.
2. Do not include Z-Wave devices controlling appliances in your
group and scene settings.
3. Do not include Z-Wave devices to control electric heaters or other
appliances which may present a hazardous condition due to an
unattended or unintentional or automatic power on control.
