2GIG GC3: Smart Home Settings
This video tutorial will show you the menu options for adding or removing Z-wave devices to your 2Gig GC3 control panel. Each menu option will allow for different controls and settings for your devices. Follow along to learn more about connecting and disconnecting Z-Wave devices in your home to the 2Gig GC3 control panel.
To access the proper menu you will utilize the touch screen on your control panel. Start by pressing the 2Gig logo in the upper right hand corner followed by entering the installer code. This will take you to the Tools options menu, where you will select “Smart Home Settings.”
The first option covered is the add device function. This menu will allow you to add a Z-Wave device to the system. Follow along with the video to learn how to add a device by setting the device to add/inclusion mode. This will be different for various devices. The video will discuss the various ways to place the device in the proper mode.
The video will alert you to the possibility that the device was previously learned in for testing purposes to another panel. You need to clear out the memory of the device through the 2Gig GC3 panel options. You can follow along with the video to find out how this is done.
Once the device is cleared, you can add it to your control panel. The video shows, in detail, how this is accomplished. Once the device is learned in, you can change various settings such as renaming from the default title to something you can easily recognize.
The check network option will verify that the Z-Wave devices are communicating with the control panel. Also, the rediscover network option will reprogram the control panel to reroute communications to the devices using the best method.
As the video shows, this is best done after all devices have been included and are set up in their permanent locations. The screen will display the progress of the rediscovery as it is being processed.
The view all devices menu will show you a visual representation of all devices learned in to the system. From this screen, as you will learn in the video, you can also make changes to the devices through this option. If a device has been removed or is no longer communicating with the control panel, you will see added options for dealing with them.
Device association allows for lighting controls to control other devices. This menu option, as the video will discuss, explains this process in detail.
The final option is the advanced settings menu. From here, you can reset all Z-Wave devices. This will remove all learned in devices, scenes and rules that have been previously set up. Controller learn will place the panel in learn mode allowing you to add a second control device, if needed.

[MUSIC PLAYING] To add, remove, and configure Z-Wave devices, press the 2GIG logo, enter the installer code 1561. Then press Smart Home Settings. To add a Z-Wave device, press Add Devices.
Now that the panel is in learn mode, put the Z-Wave device in add or inclusion mode. Please note the Z-Wave device may come with a panel previously learned in for testing purposes. The remove device feature defaults its memory, allowing the user to learn the Z-Wave device into the controller. Z-Wave devices are learned in in various ways. For example, a lamp module requires a double tap, while a Kwikset door lock requires the single press of the learn button.
Once the device is learned in, wait until the add or inclusion process has been completed. Once the device is added, press OK. To rename the device, press Rename. Once done, press the left arrow to exit.
Next, press remove devices. Now that the panel is in remove mode, also called exclusion, put the Z-Wave device in remove or exclusion mode. Z-Wave devices are removed in various ways. For example, a lamp module requires a double tap, while a Kwikset door lock requires a single press of the learn/remove button.
The panel will display the Z-Wave device has been removed. Press the left arrow to exit.
Pressing Check Network will verify Z-Wave devices are communicating with the panel. Pressing Rediscover Network will configure the optimal communication path from the panel to the various Z-Wave devices. This step should be done after all Z-Wave devices have been added to the system and installed in their permanent location. As it is processing, the panel will display the progress of the Z-Wave network configuration.
To view all Z-Wave devices and make any necessary changes, press View All Devices. Use the drop-down menu to access available options for each Z-Wave device. If the device has failed, the option to remove and replace becomes available.
Device association allows for one Z-Wave device to control or be associated with a different Z-Wave device. This is used when lighting is involved.
The advanced settings menu includes reset controller and learn controller. Reset controller will remove all Z-Wave devices, scenes, and programming from the panel. Controller learn will place the panel in learn mode, allowing a secondary controller to be learned in.
