Kwikset Z-Wave Door Locks Integration Release Notes

Preface

For information on Z-Wave and ClareHome, see Installing Z-Wave with ClareHome Tech Bulletin (DOC ID 1162).

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 that support beaming.

Introduction

Note: Kwikset 916 Z-Wave door lock may lose app synchronization and reflect the wrong door status. Manually locking/unlocking the door corrects the ClareHome app.

By installing the Kwikset door lock into a ClareHome control system, your customers can send commands using their Android or iOS devices to lock and unlock the deadbolt or lever, to check the lock status, and receive alerts when the door lock status changes.

When installing the door lock into your ClareHome project, no extra connection is necessary. Install the door lock according to the Kwikset documentation, and then connect it to the home Z-Wave network.

Installing the Kwikset door lock

We recommend adding batteries and pairing the door lock before installing it.

A qualified installation technician should install the Kwikset door lock. Refer to the documentation that came with the door lock for detailed installation instructions.

Notes

  • You must be within 6 feet of the controller for the lock to pair.
  • The door lock is configurable using the ClareHome app, the Clare Controls Install Assist app, and Fusion.
