Linear FS20Z1 - Installation Manual
FS20Z-1 ISOLATED CONTACT FIXTURE MODULE
Linear’s family of Z-Wave certiﬁed wireless lighting controls (switches,
dimmers, outlets and plug-in modules) brings 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.
Embedded in each device, the Z-Wave smart chip enables two-way RF
communication among hundreds of Z-Wave enabled devices, allowing
products and services from multiple manufacturers to work seamlessly.
Linear Z-Wave products are easy to install, and allow dealers to create
an integrated wireless network with nearly limitless expansion and
interoperability with security and health monitoring systems, energy
management, home entertainment, appliances, and more.
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 qualiﬁed electrician perform this
installation. For indoor use only. Retain instructions for future use.
Wire this module in series with a (maximum) 20 amp load according
to the diagram above. FS20Z-1 are required to be wired to the same
line (or neutral) which is also wired to the master unit as well as the
load being controlled, and not wired to any other neutral. If multiple
neutrals are tied together in one box, separate the neutrals to preserve
the integrity of the FS20Z-1 circuit.
Fixture Mounted Conﬁguration
Push the button on the face to conﬁgure the module to operate from the
wireless controller. With the Wireless Controller, the FS20Z-1 can be
switched ON and OFF remotely, and can be included in groups of lights
that operate at the same time (a group can also be a single module),
and in scenes that set a lighting mood.
The button on the FS20Z-1 also plays a role as a reset in addition to
including the module in groups and scenes. This is described in more
detail in the Wireless Controller instructions.
The FS20Z-1 is protected by an internal fuse. This internal fuse is
factory serviceable only. Check your home circuit breakers before
concluding that the product must be returned to manufacturer for repair
at a nominal charge.
Button (Local Control)
The button on the FS20Z-1 allows the user to:
• Turn the load attached ON or OFF.
• Include or exclude the module in the Z-Wave system:
STEP 1. Prepare the Controller to include a unit to the network by
adding it to a group (method of adding a node to the network). Refer to
STEP 2. The FS20Z-1 must be in its permanently installed location.
• To add a node: Tap the button.
• To remove a node: Tap the button 3 times, then press and hold (Ex.
tap, tap, tap, hold)
STEP 3. You should see an indication on your Controller that the
“DEVICE WAS INCLUDED” or “DEVICE WAS EXCLUDED” in the
network. If attached, an FS20Z-1 ver.2 auxiliary switch can also be
used to Include or Exclude the module from the Z-Wave system. When
a controller prompts you to “Send Node ID” or to “Press Button on Unit”,
follow steps 1 through 3 above to satisfy those instructions.
The LED on the FS20Z-1 will turn on when the load attached is ON.
The LED can be user conﬁgured however to turn ON when the load
attached is OFF, if so desired. The FS20Z-1 will ﬂicker its LED when it
is transmitting to any of its 4 groups. This can be changed if desired.
The FS20Z-1 will respond to BASIC and BINARY and SCENE
commands that are part of the Z-Wave system. Refer to your
controller’s instructions as to whether your controller can transmit those

All On/All Off
The FS20Z-1 supports the ALL ON/ ALL OFF commands.
The FS20Z-1 can be set to respond to ALL ON and ALL OFF commands
4 different ways. Refer to your controller for information on how to set
the FS20Z-1 to operate in the manner you desire. Some controllers may
be only able to set certain settings of ALL ON/ALL OFF response.
The 4 different ways the FS20Z-1 can be setup to respond to ALL ON
and ALL OFF commands are:
• FS20Z-1 will not respond to ALL ON or the ALL OFF command.
• FS20Z-1 will respond to ALL OFF command but will not respond to
ALL ON command.
• FS20Z-1 will respond to ALL ON command but will not respond to
ALL OFF command.
• FS20Z-1 will respond to ALL ON and the ALL OFF command.

INTEROPERABILITY WITH Z-WAVE™ DEVICES
A Z-Wave™ network can integrate devices of various classes, and these
devices can be made by different manufacturers. The FS20Z-1 can be
incorporated into existing Z-Wave™ networks. The button on the face of
the FS20Z-1 can be used to carry out inclusion, association, or exclusion.
The FS20Z-1 is certiﬁed to comply with applicable FCC and IC rules
and regulations governing RF and EMI emissions. This device complies

Linear radio controls provide a reliable communications link and ﬁll an
important need in portable wireless signaling. However, there are some
limitations which must be observed.
• For U.S. installations only: The radios are required to comply with
FCC Rules and Regulations as Part 15 devices. As such, they have
limited transmitter power and therefore limited range.
• A receiver cannot respond to more than one transmitted signal at a
time and may be blocked by radio signals that occur on or near their
operating frequencies, regardless of code settings.
• Changes or modifications to the device may void FCC compliance.
• Infrequently used radio links should be tested regularly to protect
against undetected interference or fault.
• A general knowledge of radio and its vagaries should be gained prior
to acting as a wholesale distributor or dealer, and these facts should
be communicated to the ultimate users.
