ClareVue Lighting Receptacle Integration Release Notes

Preface

For information on Z-Wave and ClareHome, see Installing Z-Wave with ClareHome.

Notes

  • When installing Z-Wave devices, ensure that there is nothing inhibiting their signal. Z-Wave relies on radio signals. Metal or thick walls may limit their signal strength.
  • We recommend having 2 or more repeating Z-Wave devices.
