mesh network is dependent on it knowing its location with respect to other nodes. You cannot “test bench” configure this module.
WD500Z-1 WALL MOUNTED DIMMER
INSTALLATION
Linear’s family of Z-Wave certified wireless lighting controls (switches,
dimmers, outlets and plug-in modules) brings a new level of intelligent
wireless capability to commercial and residential environments.
With power off, wire this WD500Z-1 according to the diagram show.
Caution! Do not wire unit “live” (with power on the circuit) and do not
allow the yellow wire to contact line voltage, neutral or ground or you
will damage the device.
The Z-Wave wireless protocol is an international wireless standard
for remote home automation, security and other applications.
Embedded in each device, the Z-Wave smart chip enables two-way RF
communication among hundreds of Z-Wave enabled devices, allowing
products and services from multiple manufacturers to work seamlessly.
If more than one WD500Z-1 is to be installed in a wall box, scored tabs
on the side can be broken off by bending back and forth with pliers, to
accommodate proper fit. Apply power when completed
Remote Control
Linear Z-Wave products are easy to install, and allow dealers to create
an integrated wireless network with nearly limitless expansion and
interoperability with security and health monitoring systems, energy
management, home entertainment, appliances, and more.
The WD500Z-1 will respond to BASIC and MULTILEVEL commands
that are part of the Z-Wave system. Refer to your controller’s instructions
as to whether your controller can transmit those commands.
All On/All Off
DANGER! SHOCK HAZARD. Read and understand these
instructions before installing. This device is intended for installation in
accordance with the National Electric code and local regulations in the
United States, or the Canadian Electrical Code and local regulations
in Canada. It is recommended that a qualified electrician perform this
installation. Make sure the total load controlled does not exceed 1800
watts. For indoor use only. Retain instructions for future use.
The WD500Z-1 supports the ALL ON/ ALL OFF commands.
The WD500Z-1 can be set to respond to ALL ON and ALL OFF
commands 4 different ways. Refer to your controller for information on
how to set the WD500Z-1 to operate in the manner you desire. Some
controllers may be only able to set certain settings of ALL ON/ALL OFF
response. The 4 different ways the WD500Z-1 can be setup to respond
to ALL ON and ALL OFF commands are:
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of overheating and possible
damage to other equipment, do not install to control a receptacle,
a motor operated appliance, a fluorescent lighting fixture, or a
transformer-supplied appliance, but only permanently installed
incandescent lamp fixtures. Make sure the lamp(s) to be controlled
directly from the dimmer receiver total no more than 500 watts. Retain
instructions for future use.
• WD500Z-1 will not respond to ALL ON or the ALL OFF command.
• WD500Z-1 will respond to ALL OFF command but will not respond
to ALL ON command.
• WD500Z-1 will respond to ALL ON command but will not respond
to ALL OFF command.
• WD500Z-1 will respond to ALL ON and the ALL OFF command
(default)

ASSOCIATION
CONFIGURATION
The WD500Z-1 supports the Association command.
The WD500Z-1 supports the Configuration command.
The WD500Z-1 can be configured to operate differently than how it
works when you first install it. Using the Configuration command you
can configure the following:
The WD500Z-1 can be set to control other Z-Wave devices. Those
devices must be installed in their permanent location.
You can turn on and off, and even dim other Z-Wave devices once they
are “associated” in groups 2 and 3 with WD500Z-1.
Set Ignore Start Level Bit When Transmitting Dim Commands
The WD500Z-1 can send Dim commands to Z-Wave enabled dimmers.
The Dim command has a start level embedded in it. A dimmer receiving
this command will start dimming from that start level if this bit is set to
0. If the bit is set to 1, the dimmer will ignore the start level and instead
start dimming from its current level.
ABOUT DIMMERS IN A GROUP: If you combine Z-Wave enabled
dimmers and other types of Z-Wave devices in a group, place a Z-Wave
enabled dimmer into the empty group first to ensure that the dimming
operates correctly.
Each group is turned on, off or dimmed by tapping or holding the switch
a differing amount of times.
• Parameter No: 1
• Length: 1 Byte
• Valid Values = 0 or 1 (default 1)
Group 2
Night Light
If you associate a Z-Wave device into Group 2, you can turn that
device on and off by tapping the top or bottom of the switch twice. You
can brighten or dim devices by tapping the top or bottom of the switch
once and then hold it down. The load attached to the WD500Z-1 is not
affected.
The LED on the WD500Z-1 will by default, turn ON when the load
attached is turned ON. To make the LED turn ON when the load attached
is turned OFF instead, set parameter 3 to a value of 1.
Proper Single Gang Installation
Using WD500Z-1’s standard full heat-sink (all tabs), the connected
incandescent lamp load shall not exceed 500W. If a tab is removed from
one side of the WD500Z-1 unit, the connected incandescent lamp load
must not exceed 400W. If both tabs are removed from the WD500Z-1
unit, the connected incandescent lamp load must not exceed 300W.
Group 3
If you associate a Z-Wave device into Group 3, you can turn that device
on by tapping the top of the switch three times or off by tapping the
bottom of the switch three times. You can brighten devices by tapping
the top of the switch twice or dim devices by tapping the bottom of the
switch twice and then hold it down. The load attached to the WD500Z-1
is not affected.
Proper Dual Gang Installation
The connected incandescent lamp load must not exceed 400W for each
of the two WD500Z-1 units.
You can associate up to 5 Z-Wave devices into each of these groups.
For instructions on how to “associate” a Z-Wave device into one of
these groups, refer to your wireless controller instructions. (If you are
using the Z-Wave controller, refer to the Setup Menu, Association
section).
Proper Triple Gang Installation
The connected incandescent lamp load must not exceed 300W for each
of the three WD500Z-1 units.
Air Gap Switch
ABOUT DIMMING: If you combine Z-Wave enabled dimmers and other
types of Z-Wave devices in a group, place a Z-Wave enabled dimmer
into the empty group 1st to ensure that the dimming operates correctly.
The WD500Z-1 has an air gap switch on the face (lower left), that when
pulled out, completely removes the power available to the load (simply
turning the dimmer off does not). This enables the lamps that are
controlled by the device to be changed with minimal danger of electrical
shock. The air gap switch must be pushed all the way back in for the
dimmer to operate the lamps again.
INCLUDING WD500Z-1 TO THE NETWORK
STEP 1. Prepare the Controller to include a unit to the network by
adding it to a group (method of adding a node to the network). Refer to
controller instructions.
STEP 2. The WD500Z-1 must be in its permanently installed
location. Tap either the top or bottom of the WD500Z-1 switch once.
STEP 3. You should see an indication on your Controller that the “device
was included” in the network.
NOTE: If you have trouble adding the WD500Z-1 to a group it may
be that the Home ID and Node ID were not cleared from it after testing.
You must first “RESET UNIT” with your controller to remove it from the
network.”
Although adding it to a group includes it in the network, removing it from
a group does not remove it from the network. If removed from a group,
it functions only as a repeater.

LED Transmission Indication
BASIC OPERATION
The WD500Z-1 will flicker its LED when it is transmitting to any of its
groups. This flickering can be set to not flicker at all (set to 0), to flicker
the entire time it is transmitting (set to 1), or to flicker for only 1 second
when it begins transmitting (set to 2). By default, the WD500Z-1 is set to
flicker for only 1 second.
Local Control
The top or bottom of the WD500Z-1 switch can be used to carry out
inclusion (add to a group), association, exclusion (remove from group)
or reset (remove from network). Pushing the top or bottom of the switch,
the WD500Z-1 allows the user to do the following:
• Parameter 19
• Length: 1 Byte
• Valid Values = 0 , 1, 2 (default 2)
• Turn ON, OFF, DIM or BRIGHTEN the load attached.
• Include or exclude the module from the Z-Wave network.
• Configure to Control Shades or Window Coverings via Z-Wave
network.
• Control other Z-Wave enabled devices.
Also, when a controller prompts you to “Send Node ID” or to “Press
Button on Unit”, quickly tap the top or bottom of the switch once to
satisfy those instructions.
Each Configuration Parameter can be set to its default setting by setting
the default bit in the Configuration Set command. See your controller’s
instructions on how to do this (and if it supports it). All Configuration
commands will be reset to their default state when the WD500Z-1 is
excluded from the Z-Wave network by using the controller to reset the
node (on the Z-Wave select “SETUP” and scroll to “RESET UNIT”).
POWER LEVEL
• Tapping top of the switch turns the load attached ON.
• Tapping bottom of the switch turns the load attached OFF.
• Pressing and holding the top of the switch will brighten the load
attached, and pressing and holding the bottom of the switch will dim
the load. When OFF, pressing and holding the bottom of the switch
will cause the load will go to the minimum dim level.
NOTE: Upon restoration of power after a power loss, the WD500Z-1
returns to previous known state.
The WD500Z-1 supports the Power Level command.
The Power level command allows controllers to set and get the RF
transmit power level of a node and test specific links between nodes
with specific RF transmit power. Refer to your controller’s instructions for
more information if it supports this command. This command is typically
used by professional installer
SUC Support
There must be a Static Update Controller (SUC) in your Z-Wave system
for this feature to work. A Static Controller is one that is not moved
after addition to the network. The Static Update Controller can act as a
gateway in the system, since other nodes always know its position. The
“always listening” advantage of the Static Update Controller is that other
nodes can transmit information frames to it whenever needed.
LED indication
The LED on the WD500Z-1 will turn on when the load attached is ON.
However, the LED can be user configured to turn ON when the load
attached is OFF, if so desired, to act as a night light.
The WD500Z-1 will flicker its LED when it is transmitting to any of its
groups. This can be changed if desired.
You can assign an “SUC Route” to the WD500Z-1. Refer to your
Controller’s instructions on how to do this (if it supports it). Assigning
an SUC Route to the WD500Z-1 allows it to request an update of the
Z-Wave devices that are between it and the Z-Wave device to which it
was trying to transmit. The WD500Z-1 will only request an update when
a transmission fails.
• Parameter No: 3
