2GIG WO15EMZ5-1 Z-Wave Plus In-wall Outlet - Install Guide
WO15EMZ5-1 WALL MOUNTED SWITCH
family of Z-Wave
certifi ed wireless lighting products (smart LED
fi xtures, bulbs, switches, dimmers, outlets, plug-in modules, and thermostats) and
security devices (alert sounder, motion sensor, and door/window sensor) bring a new
level of intelligent wireless capability to commercial and residential environments.
The Z-Wave wireless protocol is an international wireless standard for remote home
automation, security and other applications. This product can be included and operated
in any Z-Wave network with other Z-Wave certifi ed devices from other manufacturers
and/or other applications. All non-battery operated nodes within the network will act as
repeaters regardless of vendor to increase reliability of the network.
GoControl Z-Wave products are easy to install, are Z-Wave Plus certifi ed, and allow
dealers to create an integrated wireless network with nearly limitless expansion and
interoperability with security, energy management, home entertainment, appliances, and
DANGER! SHOCK HAZARD.
Read and understand these instructions before installing.
This device is intended for installation in accordance with the National Electric code
and local regulations in the United States, or the Canadian Electrical Code and local
regulations in Canada. It is recommended that a qualifi ed electrician perform this
installation. Make sure the load controlled by the switch does not exceed 1800 watts. For
indoor use only. Retain instructions for future use.
Z-WAVE PLUS FEATURES
The WO15EMZ5-1 contains a Z-Wave 500 Series Module that supports Z-Wave Plus
features. A Z-Wave certifi ed portable or stationary Controller can communicate with the
Z-Wave 500 Series Module.
Depending on the capability of the Controller or gateway software, the following
operations can be performed with the WO15EMZ5-1. Refer to the Controller or gateway
manual for details.
• Turn the load ON and OFF.
• Add or Remove the WO15EMZ5-1.
• Assign the WO15EMZ5-1 to a specific Group/Scene and/or to include the load as
part of ALL ON or ALL OFF system commands.
• Over-the-air firmware update by the gateway or static Controller.
• Lifeline function which automatically notifies the associated modules and the network
that a manually reset device is no longer in the network, thus, the corresponding
association becomes invalid.
• Monitors the amount of energy being used and reports the current usage to the
Wire this receptacle in place of a current receptacle according to the diagram above. Use
copper wire only, or equivalent.
Adding to a network:
Refer to your Controller operating instructions to add this switch under the command of
the Wireless Controller.
With your Controller in Discovery or Add Mode, tap the button on the face of the
outlet. The LED will blink slowly when in ADD Mode.
You should see an indication on your Controller that the “device was added” to the
network and the LED will stop blinking.
The device will appear in the list of Switches. It should display as a switch.
If the Controller/Gateway shows the addition failed, repeat Steps 1-3.
If you have trouble adding the WO15EMZ5-1 to a group it may be that the
Home ID and Node ID were not cleared from it after testing. You must fi rst “RESET
UNIT” to remove it from the network. Although adding it to a group includes it in the
network, removing it from a group does not remove it from the network. If removed
from a group, it functions as a repeater (only). “RESET UNIT” removes it completely
from the network.
To Reset Unit (If Required):
In the event that your primary Controller is lost or otherwise inoperable, to reset the
WO15EMZ5-1 and clear all network information, follow these steps:
Tap the button on the face of the outlet fi ve (5) times.
Press and hold the button for 15 seconds. The LED will increasingly blink faster to
indicate that a Reset is taking place.
LED will turn off when reset is complete.
Removing from a network:
The WO15EMZ5-1 can be removed from the network by the Controller/Gateway. Refer to
the Controller operating instructions for details.
Set the Controller into Removal Mode and follow its instruction to delete the
WO15EMZ5-1 from the Controller.
Remove the switch by tapping the button on the face of the outlet 2 times. The LED
will begin blinking slowly for 10 seconds indicating that it has been removed.
You should see an indication on your Controller that the “device was removed” from
The button on the WO15EMZ5-1 allows the user to:
• Turn the attached load on or off.
• Tapping the button on the face of the outlet turns the load attached ON to OFF.
To act as a night light, the LED on the WO15EMZ5-1 will turn ON when the load attached
is ON. However, the LED can be user confi gured to turn ON, when the load attached is
OFF, if so desired. See “CONFIGURATION” section.
The WO15EMZ5-1 will respond to BASIC and BINARY commands that are part of the
Z-Wave system. Refer to your Controller’s instructions as to whether your Controller can
transmit those commands.
The WO15EMZ5-1 supports one Group with fi ve Nodes for lifeline communication.
Group 1 must be assigned the Node ID of the Controller to which unsolicited notifi cations
from the WO15EMZ5-1 will be sent. The Z-Wave Controller should set this Association
automatically after inclusion. You can associate up to fi ve Z-Wave devices to Group 1.
For instructions on how to “set Lifeline Association” please refer to your wireless

The proper operation of this node in the
mesh network is dependent on it knowing its location with respect to other nodes. You cannot “test bench” confi gure this unit,
then install. 2
To remove the Associations, if the Hub has recognized the Associations, refer to the Z-Wave
Hub’s instructions on how to remove Associations. If the Hub has not recognized the Associations,
removing the WO15EMZ5-1 from the Z-Wave network will eliminate the Associations.
All On/All Off
The WO15EMZ5-1 supports the ALL ON / ALL OFF commands. The WO15EMZ5-1 can be set
to respond to ALL ON and ALL OFF commands four different ways.
Refer to your Controller for information on how to set the WO15EMZ5-1 to operate in the manner
you desire. Some Controllers may be only able to set certain settings of ALL ON/ALL OFF

Using the Confi guration command you can confi gure the following:
By default, the LED on the WO15EMZ5-1 will turn OFF when the load attached is turned ON.
To make the LED turn ON when the load attached is turned ON, set Parameter 3 to a value of 1.

WO15EMZ5-1 reports the total accumulated Kilowatt Hours (kWh) and the instantaneous Watts
being consumed by the load.
Parameter Length Valid Values
Number of minutes between automatic reporting
(Default = 6)
Confi guration Parameter 13 confi gures the rate at which the energy readings are reported. If
the maximum kWh value that can be reported is reached (21,474 kWh), then it will remain at the
maximum level until reset to 0.
The Watts reading provides the immediate reading of the power being consumed by the load.
The Watts reading takes several seconds to settle so wait a few seconds before reading the
energy value when the state of the switch (on / off) has changed.
To reset, the total accumulated kWh used by the WO15EMZ5-1 the Z-Wave controller needs
to send a reset command at the request of the user. It will also be reset if the WO15EMZ5-1 is
excluded from the Z-Wave network.
Over-The-Air (OTA) Update
A Quadruple tap of the switch enables the fi rmware update mode. Firmware update mode
must be entered before the system Controller sends the fi rmware update command to begin
downloading new fi rmware. Firmware update mode is enabled for 60 seconds after the
quadruple tap. If the Firmware update does not begin before the end of the 60 seconds then
fi rmware update mode is exited returns to normal operation. The LED “winks” twice per second
indicating it is in fi rmware update mode.
Resetting to Defaults
Each confi guration Parameter can be set back to its default setting by setting the default bit
in the Confi guration Set command. See your Controller’s instructions on how to do this
(and if it supports it). All confi guration commands will be reset to their default state when the
WO15EMZ5-1 is excluded from the Z-Wave network by using the Controller to reset the node.
