How Do I Include My Kwikset Z-Wave Lock?
You can include your Kwikset Z-Wave Lock by putting your system into its Z-Wave exclusion mode and then pressing the learn "A" button on the lock. This will clear it from the network. Then enroll the lock by putting the system into its Z-Wave inclusion mode and pressing the same "A" button.
Most Kwikset locks have a learn button that is labeled "A". This button is found underneath the device's cover, and it is used for including and excluding from the Z-Wave network. It is usually a smaller button, and it should not be confused with the "B" button or the "Program" button. You should check the device's manual for the exact location of the "A" button. Please note that some Kwikset Z-Wave locks may use a different setup.
Remember, you should always clear a Z-Wave device from the network before attempting to include it. The Z-Wave device may have been paired with a previous network for factory testing purposes. Clearing the lock from the network first will help ensure that it can successfully pair with the network later. Remember, you can only pair a Z-Wave lock with your alarm system if it has a Z-Wave controller.
Complete the following steps to include your Kwikset Z-Wave Lock.
1. Enter exclusion mode. Put your system into its Z-Wave exclusion mode. This may be done from the panel or from the Z-Wave controller depending on the equipment you are using. If you are using a panel, there will most likely be an automation menu for doing this. Your Z-Wave controller might also have an enrollment button for including and excluding device. Refer to the manual for your Z-Wave controller or your alarm control panel for more information.
2. Clear the lock. Bring the Kwikset Lock close to your panel or the Z-Wave controller. Remove the lock's cover. Press the "A" button on the lock to have it send out a transmission. The panel or Z-Wave controller should provide some visual indication that the lock has been cleared from the network.
3. Enter inclusion mode. Now that the lock has been cleared, you can begin the pairing process. Put your system into its Z-Wave inclusion mode. Again, this may be done from the panel or directly from the Z-Wave controller. It will depend on the equipment being used. Keep in mind that most panels and Z-Wave controllers follow similar processes for both including and excluding. You should refer to the appropriate manual for more information.
4. Pair the lock. Press the same "A" button that you used when clearing the lock. The panel or Z-Wave controller should recognize the transmission and provide visual indication that the lock has been paired. You may then need to configure the settings for the lock so that it works properly.
