hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to add or pair a z-wave device with your 2gig edge security system the 2gig edge has a z-wave plus v2 version two uh z-wave controller in it that's also known as the z-wave plus 700 series it's the latest and greatest z-wave technology over the z-wave 500 series um there's not too many z-wave 700 series devices out yet but they should be hitting the market quite soon um we're really excited about them they're gonna have longer range and longer battery life as well so when used with a z-wave 700 series controller like the 2gig edge that we have right here so the 2gig edge supports up to 232 z-wave devices 232 nodes it's automation platform for controlling z-wave devices remotely from an app or from a web browser alarm.com it only supports up to 122 z-wave devices now you probably won't have that many z-wave devices most people just have you know a few maybe a few dozens of devices in their home if that many um but uh the odds of you approaching 122 or even the greater limit for the panel 232 well it might happen you never know but um that is something to keep in mind when you are setting up your z-wave network um you can add all sorts of devices like lights door locks uh smart thermostats lots of great things you can add to your system now you see on our 2gig edge right here we don't have anything set up in the light module we're going to be adding a light module today a plug-in module um but uh that's where you will access the z-wave stuff but i'll show you that um when we were finished adding it to the network now let's get go ahead with um actually enrolling our z-wave plug-in module that we have right here with the 2gig edge okay so we're going to click on the settings icon the gear icon in the bottom right corner and then we're going to enter in our installer code which ours is at the default of one five six one and then we're gonna choose smart home settings and we're going to choose remove device now michael why are we removing the device instead of adding it to the network well the thing is there might be residual z-wave network data inside this z-wave plug-in module that we want to clear out first this is always a good idea if you have even a brand new z-wave device it's always smart to do this because it might be added to a network for factory testing purposes now you can clear a z-wave device even if it's not actively paired with a network this one isn't um or if it's paired with a different network we can still clear from the network using the edge or pretty much any other z-wave controller we're going to do it on the edge here we're in our remove smart home device menu option here we're going to choose the red remove device button at the bottom we're just going to wait for a second and now it's listening and now we're going to press the button on our z-wave device and you see it says z-wave device removed we'll press done and it was a foreign node that was removed because it wasn't actively paired with this network it didn't know what it was it was a foreign node to it but it cleared out any residual z-wave network data so now it can successfully pair with the network so we're going to choose done and we're going to choose add device because now we're going to add the device um to the network we're going to click the green add device button and we're going to wait for it to do its thing and now it's listening and we'll press the button on our z-wave device and found the new device now it's asking for the ds dsk code which it's actually this um five digit code right there um along with all those other digits but we only need to enter in the first five in this case it's two zero four nine six oh not three six there you go two zero four nine six and we'll press enter now that's just for the s2 uh security protocol um that is used with z-wave plus devices and z-wave plus version two devices the 700 series devices not all 500 series devices have that feature but all 700 series devices will this is actually a 500 series device but it does support the s2 protocol uh so we enter in the dsk code for um extra security we'll press done and uh we'll there we go um it has a new multi-level switch was added to the system we see that it's from qolsys and it looks like it was enrolled on node 3. we could go ahead and give it a name if we wanted to uh let's do that let's let's give it a name uh we'll clear that out we'll call that lighting device test just real fancy there lightning device test and um we're gonna go so we'll press done and then we'll press the home button down here in the bottom right corner and then we're going to press the smart home button to check on the z-wave device and you see that we now have lighting device test on here and i can control it from here i can turn it on if i wanted to um it doesn't show anything at the module itself but um that is how you would control it and if the system were monitored and set up with alarm.com for automation services then we could also access the alarm.com platform to control the device remotely as well once alarm.com does a refresh with the 2gig edge panel but for now let's just go home and uh let's not go there let's just go home and we're done adding our z-wave lighting module so now we can light up the office um so that is how you add a z-wave device to your 2gig edge security system if you have any questions about the 2gig edge z-wave home automation or alarm monitoring services send an email to support
