Complete the following steps to remove a Z-Wave device from a DSC Impassa:

1. Open Z-Wave setup. Z-Wave devices on the DSC Impassa are added and removed through the Z-Wave setup menu. To access this menu, start from the main screen of the panel with the system disarmed.

Next, use the arrow keys to find "Z-Wave Setup", and press the [*] key. The system will enter its Z-Wave setup menu.

3. Remove the device. Activate the inclusion function on the Z-Wave device to clear it from the network. The Z-Wave device will likely have a button for this purpose. However, it may have its inclusion function accessed in a different way. Consult the device's manual for more information. Please note that you may need to bring the Z-Wave device close to the DSC Impassa System when doing this for the command to go through. The panel will display a message stating that a device has been removed.

4. Return to home screen. Repeatedly press the [#] key on the DSC Impassa. This will exit the menu and return the system to its home screen. Any changes to Z-Wave devices will be automatically saved.
