Re-scan (Rediscover) Devices from network
In most cases, Z-Wave gateway is the primary controller (control
center), all Z-Wave devices will be added / (inclusion) by the Z-Wave
gateway. Normally, it is need to click the PROG button of the Z-Wave
device to add into the network and one by one. The gateway will create
a control page / section to Z-Wave devices. User can control / monitor
Z-Wave devices under the control page.
RC-100 can discover all existing Z- Wave devices from the network
and no need to click the PROG button one by one, discovered devices
will be re-assigned to their default categories (Devices, Comforts and
Sensors), and names will be re-assigned with default naming in
ascending order which is implemented by the function of “Re-scan
Devices”.
To implement this function, your RC-100 is needed to follow below
steps:
1) Assume all Z-Wave devices have been added by gateway.
2) RC-100 should act as a secondary controller (receive all
network and device information from a primary controller),
please refer to “Learning Mode” section in this manual.
3) Execute the “Re-scan Devices” function with below steps.

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%.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Z-Wave Frequently Asked Questions
Q
A
Q
A
Why won’t my remote work with the Z-Wave devices I
purchased from another country?
Due to different countries regulations Z-Wave products from
different regions are set to different frequencies. Before purchasing
new devices make sure you have checked that the device is
compatible in your region.
Do I need an electrician to install Z-Wave products in my
house?
Installation can be simple. In some cases all you need to do is
attach the Z-Wave plug in module into the wall socket. For more
advanced in-wall modules you may need this done by a qualified
technician.
51
Q
A
Can I include all Z-Wave devices from the network by RC100 and no need to click the PROG button for each device?
Yes! RC-100 provides a useful function which is “Re-scan
Devices” that allows rediscovering all Z-Wave devices from the
network.
Please refer to user manual with below steps:
i) Assume all Z-Wave devices have been added by gateway.
ii) RC-100 should act as a secondary controller [step of B11.1].
iii) Execute the “Re-scan Devices” function [step of C3].
ZRC-100 will rediscover Z-Wave devices from the network,
discovered devices will be re-assigned to their default
categories (Devices, Comforts and Sensors), and names will
be re-assigned with default naming in ascending order.
- This action may take up to 0.5-1 hour depends on how
many devices are in your network, and it will wipe out
all previously stored device names!
- Please make sure batteries are full before proceed!
iv) Now, all Z-Wave devices will appear on the Device, Comfort
and Sensor categories. You can rename your device
individually if needed.
Q
A
Can I use 2 or more RC-100 controllers in my house at one
time?
You can use multiple RC-100 around your house by assigning
one remote to be the primary remote and have an additional
secondary controller.
Q What is multi-channel device?
A The multi-channel command class used to control one or more end
points in a given device that supports this command class.
There are several kinds of multi-channel products in the market
such as Z-Wave wall switch / dimmer and power strip. It is able to
control the end-point individually.

End Point 1
Multi-Channel Device
End Point 4
Please refer to the target device user manual for more information
such as Inclusion / Exclusion and add End Point to a Scene /
Group.
Some multi-channel device in the market may lack of the
capability to report Multi-Channel Capability Report (MCCR)
for each end point (channel).
(The MCCR is used to determine what node shall receive the
association commands containing what node in the network it
shall be associated to.)
In this case, the multi-channel device can only be individually
controlled by RC-100 under Device Menu, it can not be
individually assigned to different scenes, and neither can it be
associated to primary sensors (e.g. door/window sensor).
There are many brands can supports multi-channel with
MCRR in the market such as Merten, MK Astral, Fibaro,
etc…
If you want to assign individual end-point (channel) to
different scene or make individual Association with other
devices, we recommend you to check with your local dealer to
make sure the multi-channel device can report Multi-Channel
Capability Report (MCCR) for each end point.
Q
A
Why do I need a different module for outdoor lighting?
The outdoor module is designed to withstand various weather
conditions including heat, rain and snow.
Q
A
If I lost my RC-100 will I also lose my settings?
Yes and no, if you lose your primary RC-100 you will need to
add all the Z-Wave devices to your new primary remote again. If
you lose the secondary one you can replicate all the Z-Wave setup
information from your primary remote onto a new secondary
remote.
