Features specific to virtual keypads:
ClareVue currently supports a large number of light bulbs. These bulbs have been tested for use with the ClareVue devices. Please see the list of supported light bulbs.
ClareVue devices rely on Z-Wave. Z-Wave allows for only one device to be added/paired at a time. You can pair each of your devices prior to starting the configuration step.
All ClareVue devices repeat the RF signal. To control devices that are not directly in range of the controlling device (Device 1), the signal can be carried by a maximum of 3 intermediate devices, with the 5th device being the destination, as shown below.
Device 1 → Device 2 → Device 3 → Device 4 → Device 5
A scene is a combination of lighting or appliance devices selected by the user that can be controlled as a group. Once you’ve created your network, you can program scenes that use your ClareVue devices. For example, you can create a “Movie” scene that dims the overhead light and turns on accent lights.
An event is a scheduled one-time or recurring program that launches a scene at a desired time. For example, if you plan a romantic dinner, you can schedule an event to automatically start a scene which dims the lights for the dinner.
This is no limit to the number of scenes and events that can be created.
For each source device, five associations can be programmed. One association is automatically created between the ClareHome Controller and each device in the network; therefore, only four other associations can be programmed for each source device.
A 3-way, 4-way, and other multi-location control is set up using the ClareVue Lighting Wizard. Go to the Configuration tab and select the Accessory Devices sub-tab. For each Accessory device, you can select the Master device (dimmer or switch) to which you want to add multi-location control.
We recommend using a keypad in place of a second accessory device.

ClareVue Master Neutral Dimmers (CL-MND-XX) support the following load types (and maximum wattage ratings):
You can use the Minimum and Maximum Dimming Levels to create a dimming perimeter for neutral dimmers. The user can still set a dimmer's level between 0 and 100 within this perimeter. To prevent flickering of LEDs at low dimming levels, the Minimum Dimming Level must be set to 4 or greater. To prevent lights from being too bright at 100 percent, set the Maximum Dimming Level to 99 or less.
For example, setting the Minimum Dimming Level to 4 and the Maximum Dimming Level to 80 creates a lighting perimeter of level 4 to 80. The minimum and maximum levels are established. Once the dimmer reaches level 80, it is at 100 percent of the set dimming level. It cannot obtain a higher dimming level. The same is true for the minimum dimming level. Once the dimmer reaches level 4, it cannot go lower; it is at 0 percent of the set dimming level. Note that the light will be off at 0 percent. Figure 1 and 2 show examples of the lighting perimeter and dimmer percentages.
