CONTROL/MECHANICAL SWITCH WIRING
Connect the two conductors from the control or mechanical switch to either pair of input terminals on the bottom of the alarm unit (see Figure B). The control
switch operates on low voltage to reduce shock hazards. The second input may be used to connect a second switch or dry contacts from another device.
OPERATION AND TESTING
Check and test your installation by lifting the float manually (see Figure E or G). The alarm unit will indicate an alarm condition by beeping and lighting a red
LED above “Input 1”. The alarm may be silenced for 24 hours* by briefly pressing the Silence button. Once silenced, the LED changes to a flashing state and the
audible horn will not sound. Once the high water condition is remedied, the alarm should be reset by holding the Silence button for 2 seconds. Zoeller Company
cannot be responsible for damages caused by faulty or negligent installation of this device. We respectfully suggest you engage the services of a qualified,
licensed electrician or service person. Hold the Silence button for more than 4 seconds to test once per week to verify proper operation.
For units without internet connectivity, see the standard APak® 10-4011, 10-4012.
During a power outage, the APak® will beep every 30 seconds until the power is restored. If a high water alarm occurs during power outage with batteries
installed, the alarm will sound every 5 seconds.
*24 hours is the default setting. This and other settings may be changed from Z Control® Cloud.

CONNECTING THE APAK® TO Z CONTROL®
By connecting the APak® to the Z Control® Cloud using the built-in Wi-Fi®, the user can set up free alert messages via email, text, and mobile app “push”
notifications. In addition, the user can verify the APak®’s readiness, remotely silence alarms and reset the unit, configure settings, and modify how notifications
are sent. Other visual information such as input status and battery level are available through the web and app interfaces.
Before you begin:
•
Know what your Wi-Fi® router is named (i.e. its SSID) and its password. Double check you know the correct password and exactly how it is spelled,
including capitalization. This will prevent the most common troubleshooting issue.
•
Verify your Wi-Fi® router is connected to the internet.
•
Verify your phone, tablet, or computer has working Wi-Fi®, can connect to your Wi-Fi® router, and that you can be close to the APak® during the
installation process.
•
Create a free account at zcontrolcloud.com.
•
Locate the APak®’s Device ID on the top sticker.
Connection Steps:
1.
Apply AC Power to the APak® (see note below for battery only installation^). The Z Control® LED will blink and then turn off, indicating the APak® is in
AP Mode* and is transmitting an SSID (see Figure H). If the LED is blinking and not in AP mode, either press the Silence button for 12 seconds and let
go OR hold the Silence button while applying AC power. The LED will now be off, indicating the APak® is in AP Mode.
Figure H
This LED should be off when
APak® is in AP mode.
When user is connected to
APak® to set up Wi-Fi®, LED
will blink.
When APak® is connected to
router and Z Control® Cloud,
this LED will be solid.
AC power must be used
for AP mode to work
*AP Mode is when the APak® is broadcasting its
“name”, or SSID. The SSID is in the format ZCTL_
APAK_xxxx where “xxxx” is the first 4 digits of your
APak®’s Device ID. The APak®’s SSID will show up in
your phone/tablet/computer’s list of available Wi-Fi®,
and selecting it will give you direct connectivity to the
APak®. This is required in order to give the your APak®
the password credentials needed to connect to the
Wi-Fi® of your choice.
^Battery Only Mode. The APak® will not broadcast
an SSID when powered by batteries (DC) only. It
must have AC power to broadcast an SSID. Once
the APak® is connected to Wi-Fi®, AC power may be
removed if desired. Since the APak® has previously
seen AC power and it has been removed, the APak®
will now beep every 30 seconds indicating a power
outage. To remedy, remove battery power for a
moment, then reinsert batteries. The APak® will no
longer alarm for AC Power Out (unless AC Power
is again applied and then removed). The LEDs and
alarm will behave differently than when AC is present
in order to conserve battery power. In battery only
mode, the APak® will check into the Z Control® Cloud
far less often in order for the batteries to last for
approximately 1 year. © Copyright 2016 Zoeller® Co. All rights reserved.

2.
Standing near the APak®, use your phone, tablet, or computer to look for the APak®’s SSID in your Wi-Fi® settings (see Figure I). It will look like
“ZCTL_APAK_xxxx” where “xxxx” is the first 4 digits of your APak®’s Device ID. Select this, and 2 things will happen:
1. The Z Control® LED will flash quickly.
2. A Z Control® setup screen will open after a few seconds.
If the setup screen does not appear, open a browser on the same device and type “zconfig.com” or “192.168.125.1” in the address bar. If the setup
screen appears but is not used (cancelled or otherwise closed), the APak® will return to AP mode and the Z Control® LED will turn off until the next
Wi-Fi® setup attempt.
Figure I
Select the APak®’s SSID
3.
On the setup screen (see Figure J), press the “Wi-Fi® Scan” button, scroll down to see the list of Wi-Fi® signals found, and choose the Wi-Fi® you want
the APak® to use for internet connectivity. Enter the password for the router you chose in the field indicated. If the password is correct, the APak® will
connect to the router and start sending status updates to zcontrolcloud.com. You will see the Z Control® LED go from blinking to solid. This could take
up to a minute or so.
If the LED does not turn solid, then the password entered is incorrect, the router’s security is insufficient (see note below**), or some other network
restriction is in place (see your network administrator). The APak® will return to AP mode if the connection to router is not successful. If you need to
force the APak® into AP mode again, either press the Silence button for 12 seconds OR hold the Silence button while applying AC power. Either of
these methods will cause the APak® to re-enter AP mode and begin transmitting its SSID again.
Figure J
Click Wi-Fi® Scan button
Available Wi-Fi® will be listed
here. Select the one you want.
**Note that the APak® will not connect to routers with “WEP” or “OPEN” security.

Once the APak®’s Z Control® LED is solid, log in to your account (or create one) at zcontrolcloud.com (see Figure K). Click the Edit button next to a
Location, and choose Add New Device. Follow the directions to add your APak® by either auto-detect or entering the Device I.D. When successful, an
APak® product tile will appear in your account.
The Apak® is capable of “over the air” firmware updates. It’s possible that the APak® could perform an update immediately if one is available at the Z
Control® Cloud. If an update is taking place, the Z Control® LED will flicker for up to 1 minute while the update is downloaded. The Z Control® LED will
be solid and all other LEDs will turn off while the update is being installed. After up to 1 minute, the APak® will restart and return to normal operation.
The APak®’s alert history on the Z Control® Cloud will also be updated with the firmware upgrade information, and nofication to email accounts will
occur.
Figure K
Select Add New Device
When you add the correct
Device ID, an APak® product tile
will appear in your account
Congratulations! Your APak® is online. You can now open the product’s configuration by clicking the “View” button to modify the APak®’s device and notification
settings.
You can also install the Z Control® mobile app on your mobile device (Android and iOS versions available, search “Z Control” in the app stores). This app allows
for easy access to device information. Silence, Reset, and Test functionality is also included. The app is not currently designed for setting up Wi-Fi®, creating an
account, or adding devices. These steps can only be done through the web interface (using a mobile device to access the web interface is fine). Setting up the
APak® to use your Wi-Fi® is completed by connecting to the APak®’s internal Wi-Fi® (as discussed in the above Connection Steps).
