All META Serie 7 devices are compatible with all Z-Wave/Z-Wave Plus certified controllers. The devices support both the Network Wide Inclusion mechanism (which offers the ability to be included in a network, even if the device is not directly connected to the controller) and Normal Inclusion.
By default, the inclusion procedure starts in Normal Inclusion mode and after a short timeout the procedure continues in Network Wide Inclusion mode that lasts for about 20 Seconds.
Only a controller can add the device into the network. After activating the inclusion function by the controller, the device can be added by setting it in Learn Mode.
Before including the device, the LED status indicator is solid RED. The adding of a device is executed by activating the adding procedure in the inclusion section of the controller interface and executing 1 or 3 click on the integrated button (the device is set in Learn Mode). As soon as the inclusion procedure initiates the LED indicator starts a sequence of GREEN-BLUE blinks. The device is included in the network when the LED status is OFF and the interview is completed.

Only a controller can remove the device from the network. After activating the exclusion function by the controller, the device can be removed by setting it in Learn Mode.
The procedure of exclusion can be activated by Removing a node from the Z-Wave network and executing 1 or 3 click on the integrated button; as soon as the exclusion initiates, the LED indicator starts a sequence of RED-BLUE blinks. The device is excluded from the network when the LED status indicator is solid RED and the App_status in the interface is OK.

Factory reset Meta Dry Contact Switch 7

The device can be reset to the original factory settings with 6 consecutive clicks on the integrated button.
After the reset is completed, the device will reboot and a RED solid led is showed.

Please use this procedure only when the network primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable.

INFO: If the reset is performed while the device is still part of a network, it notifies the other devices that it has been removed (Device Reset Locally Notification).

Timer Management
A timer can be set when switching On and/or Off. It is also possible to define which event will start the timer.

Offline setup Mode
The device has a unique feature that allows to configure some parameters without using any user interface. This feature enables the professional user to setup the main features of the device in the field even if the device is not included in a Z-Wave Network. When the device will be included in the network all these configuration parameters will be maintained.

Central Scene management
Since the device supports Central Scene Notification all the events described in the table will be notified with a Central Scene Notification Report to the lifeline. The events that trigger a Central Scene Notification Report can be customized with the configuration parameter in the Central Scene Notification Parameter section.

Firmware Update
The system supports over-the-air firmware updates that do not require the device to be removed from its location. The firmware update can be activated from all certified controllers supporting version 2 of the Firmware Update function.
