Smart Energy Switch manual

The following instructions have been designed to assist in the installation of the Aeotec by Aeon Labs Z-Wave Smart Energy Switch. Please note that the instructions are for the 1st Edition of the Smart Energy Switch.

Z-Wave Network Instructions:

The Aeon Labs Smart Energy Switch must be paired (included) into a Z-Wave network before it can receive Z-Wave commands to turn on/off and report its energy usage. The smart energy switch can only communicate to devices within it’s own z-wave network.

Note
The LED on the Smart Energy Switch will blink if it is currently not paired into a Z-Wave network.
