Installation precautions
• Adhere to all relevant local codes and ordinances
as they pertain to the Smart Water Valve.

You are required to consult local plumbing codes
and have appropriate licensing for the
installation of this device.
• Never insert fingers or other objects into the
Smart Water Valve. Inserting objects into the
valve may result in damage or injury.
• The Smart Water Valve should only be powered
using the supplied power adapter (supports
mains voltage: 100-240 VAC ~50/60 HZ).


Do not apply power to the Smart Water Valve
until the unit is fully assembled. 3

Additional parts requirements

Installation of the Smart Water Valve requires additional fittings to connect the ends of the valve to
the pipe. The type of fittings needed will depend on the pipe material, industry standards, and
applicable plumbing codes. Please see the “Specifications” section of the product packaging for more
information on the pipe size and thread type of your specific Smart Water Valve.

Installation location

The Smart Water Valve must be installed:
• In a dry, indoor location.
• Downstream from the main shut-off valve on the
desired water supply line.
• With the control unit located above the valve.

Use drip loops wherever possible to avoid
damaging the electronics in the event of a leak.
• In compliance with all local plumbing and

electrical codes.
• Within 20 feet of a wall outlet.
• Easily visible and accessible to the end user.
Water shutoff valves and leak detection devices
should never be installed on a fire

suppression system.

Installation

Installing the Smart Water Valve
1. Shut off the water supply line and drain

the system.
2. Install the valve in the desired water supply

line using appropriate fittings. See “Installation
Location” for more information on choosing

a location.
3. After installing the valve, turn the water supply
on and ensure there are no leaks originating from
the valve or connections to the valve.


Use a wrench or actuator to move the valve

stem so that it is parallel to the valve. Line up
the posts on the actuator with the holes on

the valve. Connect the actuator to the valve by
pressing on the actuator until it snaps into place.
5. Connect the actuator to the control unit using
the attached cable. The connector is keyed to
ensure proper alignment.
6. Mount the control unit to the wall using the
supplied wall bracket and anchors.
7. Connect the power supply to the locking

barrel connector on the control unit.

Turn counterclockwise to lock.
8. Plug the power supply
into the nearest

wall outlet. Verify power
by checking if the LEDs
are illuminated.

Testing the Smart Water Valve
1. Open a tap or faucet downstream of the Smart
Water Valve.
2. Press the close button and wait for the Smart
Water Valve closed light to turn solid. Check that
the valve has closed by verifying that no water is
flowing from the open fixture.
3. Press the open button and wait for the valve
open light to turn solid. Check that the valve has
opened by verifying that water is flowing from
the open fixture.
4. Close the open tap or faucet.
5. Add the Smart Water Valve to the

Z-Wave network.

Adding the Smart Water Valve to the

Z-Wave network
For best results, we recommend bringing the
Z-Wave controller into the area where the Smart
Water Valve is installed.
1. Put the Z-Wave controller into add mode.

Refer to controller guide for more information.
2. Press the networking
button on the side

of the Smart Water Valve control unit to begin
the add process. The network light on the control
unit will begin flashing.
3. After the Smart Water Valve is successfully
added, the network light on the Smart Water
Valve will turn solid. If the network light is not
illuminated after the add process, repeat

Steps 1 and 2.

Troubleshooting


The Smart Water Valve is not communicating
with the Z-Wave controller
1. Remove power from the Smart Water Valve.
Wait at least 2 minutes before reapplying power
and reattempting communication with the
Z-Wave controller.
2. If Step 1 does not resolve the issue, try removing
the device from the network (see “Removing the
Smart Water Valve from the Z-Wave network”)
and re-adding it to the network.
3. If Step 2 does not resolve the issue, we
recommend installing a Z-Wave repeater nearby
and performing a Z-Wave network rediscovery.

Any wall powered Z-Wave device will act as a
repeater and improve the range between the
Z-Wave controller and the Z-Wave device you

are installing.

Removing the Smart Water Valve from the

Z-Wave network
For best results, we recommend bringing the
Z-Wave controller into the area where the Smart
Water Valve is installed.
1. Put the Z-Wave controller into remove mode.
Refer to the controller documentation for

more information.
2. Press the networking
button on the side

of the Smart Water Valve control unit to begin
the remove process. The network light on the
control unit will begin flashing.
3. The network light will turn off if the remove
process is successful. If the network light is still
illuminated after the removal process, repeat
Steps 1 and 2.


Resetting the Smart Water Valve to factory
default settings
Caution: Resetting the Smart Water Valve to its
factory default settings will remove the device
from the network and restore all user settings to
their default values.


Local Reset: Press and hold the networking
button for 15 seconds. All three LEDs will blink
for five seconds and the device will restart.
Manual valve actuation
In the event of a power loss or system failure, the
Smart Water Valve can be manually actuated
using the following procedure:

Remove the actuator from the valve by pulling
the actuator away from the valve.

Use pliers, an adjustable crescent wrench, or a
flat head screwdriver to move the valve stem to
the correct position, as shown below.

Notices


FCC


This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1.
This device may not cause harmful interference.
2.
This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.


NOTE: Changes and Modifications not expressly approved by

Building 36 can void your authority to operate this equipment

under Federal Communications Commissions rules.


This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the
FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference
to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to
try to correct the interference by one or more of the

following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV

technician for help.
IC Notice
Under Industry Canada Regulations, this radio transmitter may
only operate using an antenna of a type and maximum (or lesser)
gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce
potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and
its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically
radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for
successful communication.
Conformément à la réglementation d’Industrie Canada, le présent
émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une antenne d’un type et
d’un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l’émetteur par
Industrie Canada. Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouillage
radioélectrique à l’intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le
type d’antenne et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope
rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l’intensité nécessaire
à l’établissement d’une communication satisfaisante.


CE Notice
Hereby, Alarm.com declares that the radio equipment type
ADC-SWV100-EU is in compliance with Directive 2014/53/EU.
