Wireless batteryfree switch

Wireless batteryfree switch
The GE range of wireless batteryfree switches are maintenance
free, self-powered transmitters that can be glued in place or
screwed to a suitable surface or into an existing switch box. The
device requires no wired connections.
Single rocker
The switches with one rocker can transmit two distinct signals.
One signal when the rocker is pushed on the top end and one when
it is pushed at the bottom end.
Similarly a double rocker can transmit four distinct signals, one
signal when each of the rockers is pushed on the top end and one
when each of them is pushed at the bottom end.
The mounting base plate can be screwed onto a flat surface or
glued to the wall, glass or other smooth surfaces by using the
enclosed adhesive foil.
The wireless switches can be paired with the GE range of wireless
actuators to control the loads connected to them.
One switch can control multiple wireless actuators. The switches
can be purchased in multiple colours and in 1 or 2 rocker versions.
Double rocker
The switch can control the actuators or provide inputs to the
devices listed below:
1. Wireless one channel actuator 10A – W1R10N series
2. Wireless two channel actuator 6A – W2R10N series
3. Wireless one channel actuator 1A – W1R1N series
4. One channel wireless dimmer 250V – cat. no. W1D1L & W1D1N
5. HabiTEQ controller CTD series (via the wireless gateway)
6. Third party EnOcean receivers

Safety instructions
Installation requirements and range
Base plate
Cover plate
As the radio signals are electromagnetic waves, the signal is
damped on its way from the sender to the receiver and interferences have to be considered: Metallic parts, e.g. reinforcements
in walls, metallized foils of thermal insulations or metallized heat
absorbing glass are reflecting electromagnetic waves.
Thus, a so called radio shadow is built up behind these parts.
For the practice, this means that the building material used in
a building is of paramount importance for the evaluation of the
transmitting range. For an evaluation of the environment, some
guide values for the range are listed.
- Remove the snap in base plate with a flat head screw driver,
by slightly pulling back the locking tabs.
- Mount the base plate in the desired location using the right
- Snap rocker and transmitter assembly back onto the base plate
ensuring they click in place well held by the locking tabs.
- Visual contact between emitter and receiver: ± 30m range in
passages, corridors, up to 100m in halls
- Gypsum walls/wood: ± 30m range through max. 5 walls
- Brick wall/gas concrete: ± 20m range through max. 3 walls
- Reinforced concrete/ceilings: ± 10m range through max.

Cover plates
A wide range of design cover
plates compatible with the
assembly can be selected from
the catalogue.
Supply blocks and lift shafts should be seen as
a compartmentalization.
Note: The design cover plate
should be ordered seperately,
it is not included in the switch
Remark: When mounting the
batteryless switch in the wall,
be aware of the ON and OFF
positions as described above
but also indicated on the back
side as well as on the front side
of the switch once the rockers
have been removed.
In addition, the angle of the signal arriving at the wall is very
important. Depending on the angle, the effective wall strength and
the damping attenuation of the signal changes.
If possible, the signals should run vertically through the walling.
Walling recesses should be avoided.
Other interference sources.
Devices, that operate with high frequency signals, e.g. computer,
audio/video systems, electronic transformers and ballasts etc. are
also considered as an interference source. The minimum distance
to such devices should amount to 0.5m.
Third party devices supported
Although GE devices are interoperate with other 3rd Party
gateways and sensors, the functionality cannot be guaranteed.
Configuration and setup
How to Learn or Unlearn the wireless switch:
Refer to the wireless receiver/actuator datasheet for the detailed
learning procedure. Press the rocker button of the desired channel
3 times to learn in the switch, where indicated on the receiver/
actuator datasheet.
Warranty claim
Period of warranty: 2 years from date of delivery.
Warranty will not be accepted if the device has been opened!
Any faulty devices should be returned to your local distributor
where the product was purchased with a description of the defect.
How to Learn the device to the GE smart gateway for energy
metering and advanced control:
Step 1: Press and hold the learn “LRN” button on the GE gateway
until the green LED starts to flash
Step 2: Press the rocker button of the desired channel 3 times to
learn in.
Step 3: Green LED will stop flashing and will stay continuously ON
for 1 sec
This confirms that the gateway has learnt the switch.
How to exit Learn mode:
- Press and hold the LRN button until the LEDs stop flashing. This
confirms the gateway has exited learn mode.
- The device will exit learn mode automatically after 30sec if no
button has been pressed.
