    Installation instructions

    Inclusion: Including the REM50Z into an Existing Network:
    1. Set your primary controller to Include mode, to add the REM50Z as a node on your network
    (see your controller’s user manual for detailed instructions).
    2. Press the Install button. The controller will indicate the device has been included into the network.
    Your controller will indicate the REM50Z was successfully added to its network (see your controller’s user manual for details). Inclusion and exclusion are always done at normal transmit power mode.
    If your controller supports NWI, then you can optionally set the primary to NWI include mode. Please note that NWI inclusion mode does not end when you have included a new node. This allows multiple nodes to be included without having to physically go back to the controller to initiate the next inclusion. Therefore you must manually terminate NWI inclusion mode at the controller when you have finished including any new nodes to the network. Since intermediate included nodes will assist the inclusion process by routing messages, we recommend that nodes close to the primary controller be installed first, proceeding out in consecutive rings from the controller.
    Note: Consult your controller’s user manual for details on removing a device from a Z-Wave network.

    Exclusion: Removing the REM50Z from a Network:
    1. Set your primary controller to Remove mode, to remove the REM50Z as a node on your network (see your controller’s user manual for detailed instructions).
    2. Press the Install button. The controller will indicate the device has been removed from the network.

    Factory reset Rem50z

    Factory Reset

    NOTE: A Factory Reset should only be performed if the network controller is missing or inoperable.

    To reset the REM50Z’s configurations and Z-Wave parameters to Factory Settings (Including association groups and scene configurations), and remove the REM50Z from any Z-Wave network:
    1. Hold down the Install button for approximately 10 seconds
    2. Release the install button (the REM50Z will reset all internal configuration including Z-Wave configurations). The unit will then reset.
    3. When the Status LED begins to blink (un-enrolled) the unit has finished restoring configurations is running in normal mode.
    A Restore Defaults will be performed automatically when removed from a network.
