Z-Wave Magnetic Switch Sensor: Switch/Relay Input Detection
The RollerTrol™ DW-ZWAVE-SWM sensor monitors a door or window and sends a Z-Wave signal when the door or window is opened and closed.
It has a magnetic switch inside, and can also be connected to an external switch or relay to detect contact closure. Both sensors can operate at the same time.
This unit is a Z-Wave enabled device (interoperable, two-way RF mesh networking technology) and is fully compatible with any Z-Wave Interface Controller (ZIC), such as Vera®, Wink®, Homeseer®, SmartThings®, etc.
Every mains powered Z-Wave enabled device acts as a signal repeater. The use of multiple devices result in more possible transmission routes, which helps eliminate "RF dead- spots".
Z-Wave enabled devices displaying the Z-Wave logo can be used together, regardless of the manufacturer.
- Opening the door or window separates the magnet from the sensor body, which sends an "ON" status signal (Basic Set, Value 0xFF) to any associated nodes. The LED flashes once when this occurs.
- Closing the door or window aligns the magnet and sensor, which sends an "OFF" status signal (Basic Set, Value 0x00) to any associated nodes. The LED flashes once when this occurs.
- The LED is off during normal operation.
- The sensor is equipped with a tamper switch. When the rear cover is removed, the sensor sends an alarm status signal (type 01, level 11) to the ZIC. The LED will steadily glow and the sensor will be in "awake" mode until the cover is replaced.

This unit can be purchased in the Z-Wave SENSOR section of our online store.
Notice: If you are installing an entire Z-Wave system for the first time, please refer to the installation guide for the Z-Wave Interface Controller before installing this sensor.
- Remove the screw that holds the rear cover of the sensor in place.
- Slide the rear cover down and remove it from the sensor body.
- Using either the provided screws or adhesive pad, attach the sensor's rear cover to the frame of a door or window.
- Insert a CR123A battery into the battery compartment. The LED will start to flash slowly, which means that the sensor has not yet been "included" in your local Z-Wave network.
- Depending on your specific application, setup the sensor as follows:
Add the sensor to an existing Z-Wave network by first putting your main Z-Wave Interface Controller (ZIC) into "inclusion" mode. Follow the instructions that came with your ZIC to pair the sensor with the controller. Place the sensor within 1 meter of the ZIC, then press and hold the program switch for about 1 second. The LED will stop flashing and will glow steadily when pairing is complete.
To remove the sensor from an existing Z-Wave network, first put the ZIC into "exclusion" mode and follow its instructions for removing a device. With the sensor within 1 meter of the ZIC, press and hold the program switch for about 1 second to exclude the sensor from the network.
You can assign the sensor to be associated with another device. This allows the two devices to communicate directly, without direct control by the ZIC. To associate the sensor, first remove the rear cover from the sensor to put it into "awake" mode. Then put your ZIC into "association" mode and follow the instructions included with your ZIC. When association is completed, close the rear cover of the sensor, which will automatically go into "sleep" mode to save power. The sensor supports one association group of five nodes.
Put the sensor into "awake" mode by removing the rear cover. When in "awake" mode it can receive inclusion, exclusion, and association commands from the ZIC.
Once pairing is completed, slide the sensor back onto the mounted rear cover and fix it in place with the screw.
Use either the included screws or adhesive pad to secure the magnet in place. The magnet should be positioned to that it is adjacent to the area indicated on the sensor body (see illustration below). Additionally, the magnet should be positioned no further than 19 mm from the sensor body.
If your door or window can be opened from either side, you will need an external switch to monitor that side. Follow the instructions in the illustrations below to install an external switch. The switch will send an alarm signal (type 01, level 11) when the door or window is opened.
You can also use this to detect the operation of other devices, such as rain sensors with contact closure or relays.
SETTING UP YOUR Z-WAVE HUB
Since this unit is a Z-Wave enabled device it is compatible with any Z-Wave Interface Controller (ZIC), such as Vera®, Wink®, Homeseer®, SmartThings®, etc.
Some hubs can be easier to configure than others; here is a screen capture of the Add Device process you would follow to install it in the Vera interface (User Interface version 7).
After selecting Devices in the left menu, just follow the instructions that prompt you on the screen.
If you are using the extra input terminals on the end of the switch sensor, for detecting rain sensors or other contact closure devices, you can poke a hole though the round knockout in the plastic at the end.
If you hold a light up to it, you should be to see the knockout outline. If not, just cut the end away with a pair of side cutters or other suitable tool.
After the device is installed and functioning, you can select the type of alert you want, and how it will be configured (screen, siren, email, text, etc).
You can also just create a scene to close your skylight actuators when it rains, without transmitting an alert.
The RollerTrol™ window and skylight openers can be purchased in the Window and Door Opener section of our online store.
FCC COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
