Kwikset Z-Wave Door Locks 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 status in the ClareHome app.

By integrating the Kwikset into the ClareHome control system, your customers can control the door lock from their Android or iOS devices.

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

Only qualified installation technicians should install Kwikset door locks. Follow the installation instructions that came with your equipment. We recommend that you pair the lock with the ClareHome Z-Wave controller before installing it in the door.

Notes

  • You must be within 6 feet of the controller for the lock to pair.
  • The door lock is configurable using the ClareHome app and FusionPro.
