Each Z-Wave network has a unique “Home ID” that is unique to the primary controller and assigned to all devices in the corresponding network.
A Z-Wave network can handle a maximum of 232 devices (nodes), including the primary controller.
Sixty feet with no obstructions; however, the more obstacles between devices, the weaker the signal will be.
ClareVue devices operate at the U.S. Z-Wave frequency of 908.4 MHz.
How many primary controllers can a Z-Wave network have?
There can be only one primary controller on a Z-Wave network.
A Z-Wave Network can have multiple secondary controllers.
Only a primary controller can add (also known as include or pair) a device into a network. However, either type of controller can be used to remove (also known as exclude or unpair) a device from the network.
Two controllers can swap their status with each other allowing a secondary controller to become a primary controller and vice versa.
An association is a feature that you can program to allow a device (source) in your network to control another device (destination). Think of it as saying, “If THIS happens, Then do THAT.” Applied to ClareVue, associations allow multi-location control to be configured. For example, an association is required to create a 3-way controls between 2 ClareVue switches or dimmers. In such a case, two associations must be programmed; the first is from the Master to the Accessory; the second from the Accessory to the Master. This bi-directional association allows either the Master and Accessory device to initiate a change in the lighting, and to keep their on/off or dimmer level status in sync. These associations are programmed automatically when you use the ClareVue Lighting Wizard in Fusion to add and configure your devices.
No. The “Replace Failed Node” function in the “Test” tab of the Z-Wave controller is used to replace a failed Z-Wave device. The controller will retain all information for that device and assign it to the newly installed replacement device.
