This bulletin instructs Clare Controls customers how to transfer the Z-Wave network of a failed CH-OS-L to a replacement CH-OS-L.
- The Z-Wave network must have been backed up prior to the failure of the CH-OS-L.
- The new CH-OS-L must use the same project as the original CH-OS-L.
- If the Z-Wave backup (on the Z-Stick) has been corrupted, the Z-Wave network must be rebuilt.
- If you are replacing a CH-OS-L with a CLIQ controller, the Z-Wave network must be rebuilt.
Transferring the Z-Wave network
The Z-Stick holds most of the Z-Wave network information. It is not entirely backed up in Fusion. The information on the Z-Stick combines with the Z-Wave information stored in the project. When using Z-Wave, ensure that the Z-Wave network is backed up when devices are added, or when there are changes in the network.
To back up the Z-Wave network:
1. Select the project, and then click the Z-Wave tab.
2. Click the Backup Z-Wave Controller button .
A Success messages displays.
3. Click OK.
To transfer the Z-Wave network:
1. Ensure that there is no power connected to the failed CH-OS-L device, and then remove the Z-Stick.
Note: If the Z-Stick is removed when the CH-OS-L is powered on, device information may be lost or damaged. The Z-Wave network must be rebuilt if device information is lost.
2. In Fusion, change the project’s UUID to the new CH-OS-L’s UUID, and then click the Save button.
Note: The same project must be used for a successful Z-Wave network transfer.
3. Ensure that the new CH-OS-L is not powered on, and then insert the Z-Stick.
4. Power on the new CH-OS-L.
Depending on the size of the project, it may take between 3 and 5 minutes for all Z-Wave devices to come online.
5. In Fusion, access the Z-Wave tab, and then click the Refresh button.
6. Ensure that all Z-Wave devices are online.
If any devices are missing, wait several minutes and refresh again.
7. Restore the Z-Wave network.
To restore the Z-Wave network:
1. Click the Restore Z-Wave Controller button.
The Restore Z-Wave Controller dialog displays.
2. Click Yes.
3. The Restore Z-Wave Controller dialog displays. Click OK.
For larger projects you may see an error message. Click Ok.
4. Test all Z-Wave devices to confirm a successful transfer.
Note: If the Z-Wave devices did not come online, or the devices are not working, the Z-Stick may be corrupted. You will need to rebuild the Z-Wave network.
