Inclusion and Exclusion Your VeraPlus Controller can work with all Z-Wave devices, such as sensors, alarms, door locks, thermostats, etc. Over a thousand Z-Wave devices are available from many brands. (Z-Wave is a wireless communications system; check the package or specs to see if a device uses Z-Wave.) Before VeraPlus can control a device, it must be included into the Vera system. Vera Custom Device Wizards are available for select devices that pass stringent Vera Labs testing for compatibility and quality. The Custom Device Wizards make Inclusion/ Exclusion easiest, with specific details for each device. Figure 1-1: Add Device A list of these devices is available and updated at http://getvera.com/compatibility/ For all other Z-Wave devices, a Generic Device Wizard is used for Inclusion/Exclusion. A Generic Device Wizard is available for each device category (thermostats, sensors, alarms, etc.) To get started, after setting up your VeraPlus Controller, use the Vera UI to select Devices and then Add Device (Figures 1-1 & 1-2). Figure 1-2: Device Paring menu Inclusion/Exclusion for Devices with Vera Custom Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Select Devices and click on the Add Device option. Click on the “+” sign for the device’s category. A list of Vera Custom Device Wizards is displayed. Select a device to include. Follow the steps in the Device Wizard to add the device. After adding a new device, the VeraPlus Controller will ask you to name it and choose the room it is (or will be) located in. Note: If the device was previously included with a different Z-Wave system, you’ll need to it exclude it before adding with your VeraPlus. (You may also need to do this if you have problems Inclusion/Exclusion the first time.) Press the Retry button to start the exclusion process. Once the device is excluded, add it by following the inclusion steps. Inclusion/Exclusion for Devices using a Generic Device Wizard Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Select Devices and click on the Add Device option. Click on the “+” sign for the Other Device’s category. A list of Vera Custom Device Wizards is displayed. If your specific device is not shown, select the “Generic Z-Wave Device” option. Follow the steps in the Device Wizard to add the device. After adding a new device, the VeraPlus Controller will ask you to name it and choose the room it is (or will be) located in. Note: If the device was previously included with a different Z-Wave system, you’ll need to it exclude it before adding with your VeraPlus. (You may also need to do this if you have problems Inclusion/Exclusion the first time.) Press the Retry button to start the exclusion process. Once the device is excluded, add it by following the inclusion steps. VeraPlus Buttons WPS Mode These instructions are for manually starting WPS Mode (Figure 2-1). • Press the Select button. The Wi-Fi light will begin blinking. • Press the Sync button. This activates WPS Mode. Note: Unit will stay in WPS mode for two minutes. These instructions are for manually exiting WPS Mode. • While the Wi-Fi light is blinking, long press (3 seconds) on the Sync button. The Wi-Fi light will stop blinking and will stay lit. Power Internet Wi-Fi Z-Wave Service ZigBee Bluetooth Z-Wave Include/Exclude Mode During normal installation of Z-Wave devices you do NOT need to use these buttons. These instructions are for manually starting Z-Wave Include and Exclude Modes (Figure 2-1). Select • Press the Select button. • Press the Select button again. The Z-Wave light will begin blinking. • For Include Mode, press the Sync button briefly (less than 1 second). • For Exclude Mode, press and hold the Sync button for at least 2 seconds, then release. Controller Reset Reset to Network defaults - Press the Reset button 3 times in 6 seconds. Factory Reset - Press the Reset button 6 times in 6 seconds. The Controller will reboot. Note: Please use this procedure only in the event that the system primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable (Figure 2-1). Figure 2-1: VeraPlus - Front View Sync Reset Advanced Z-Wave Functions These Advanced Z-Wave Functions are usually needed only for specific (and rare) technical situations, or for professional installers creating very large systems, or for developers creating new hardware or software. You may need to access these advanced functions if there’s a problem with your system and you need to reset the Z-Wave network, if you want to upgrade to a different model of Vera Controller, to enable another controller to operate your VeraPlus, or for other technical situations as described below. A B C To access Advanced Z-Wave Functions select Settings and then Z-Wave Settings. Select the Advanced tab (Figure 3-1). From there you’ll be able to access these Advanced Z-Wave options: A Reset Z-Wave network Will clear all the user configuration data and assign a new Z-Wave HouseID. B Copy Z-Wave network from a primary controller Will allow the unit to copy all Z-Wave related information from a Primary Z-Wave Controller and is used with Replication. C Controller shift Tells Vera to transfer the role of primary controller to another Z-Wave controller. The other Z-Wave controller will become the ‘Master controller’, and Vera will be a secondary controller. This means the other Z-Wave controller will then be responsible for healing the networking and being the SIS/SUC (a technical Z-Wave term). Normally, by default, Vera is the master controller and is SIS/SUC. Figure 3-1: Advanced Tab Advanced Z-Wave Functions D Reset the Z-Wave chip This option will re-initialize the Z-Wave chip. E Get network update from SUC/SIS This option will update the slave controller network from the primary controller to which it’s currently added. This option is used when Vera is a secondary controller. F Backup Z-Wave Network VeraPlus has the ability to back up its Z-Wave network and its configuration settings to be restored on another gateway. This procedure is explained on the page below: http://support.getvera.com/customer/portal/articles/2345058 Learn Mode Include your controller into an existing Z-Wave network. Steps for VeraPlus controller using the web interface. Click on Settings > Z-Wave Settings > Advanced > Select ‘Copy Z-Wave network from a primary controller’ This will put the controller into learn mode and shift it to a secondary role. The controller can now receive data from a primary device in the network and associate with other devices in the Z-Wave network via the primary controller. Replication Include another controller and transfer the Z-Wave network data to it. Steps for VeraPlus controller using the web interface. Click on Settings > Z-Wave Settings > Advanced > Select ‘Controller Shift’ All the Z-Wave devices will be replicated into the new controller. This is used to transfer data from one controller to another. With replication the new controller becomes primary. D E F Figure 3-1: Advanced Tab Advanced Z-Wave Functions Basic Command Class Handling The basic command class is controlled by Vera and it is not mapped to any other Z-Wave Command Class. More details can be found on our wiki page. http://wiki.mios.com/index.php/ZWave_Basic_Command_Class_Mapping Support for sending Z-Wave Commands Z-Wave commands can be sent using the Vera API which will allow you to send HTTP requests with the specified command class to the specified node. More details can be found on our wiki page. http://wiki.mios.com/index.php/Luup_UPnP_Variables_and_Actions# ZWaveNetwork1 Support for Association Command Class VeraPlus has support for the Lifeline association command class. To send a Z-Wave command you’ll need to add the node id of the controlled Z-Wave device and the command class used. group id: 1 - lifeline number of nodes in group: 1 For example to control node 3 and send a BASIC_SET with a value of 00, the command will be : More details can be found on our wiki page. http://wiki.mios.com/index.php/Association http://GATEWAY_IP/port_3480/data_request?id= action&DeviceNum=1&serviceId=urn: micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1&action= SendData&Node=3&Data=0x20-0x01-0x00 Support for Multiple Manufacturers in The Same Network The controller can be included and operated in any Z-Wave network with other certified Z-Wave devices from other manufacturers and/or other applications. All non-battery operated nodes within the network will act as repeaters regardless of the vendor to increase the reliability of the network. GATEWAY_IP is the actual local IP address of the unit. Node is the Z-Wave node the command is sent to. Data will contain the Z-Wave Command Class sent to the device.
