Z-Stick Lite manual

The following instructions have been designed to help you install and get the best performance out of the Aeotec by Aeon Labs Z-Stick Lite.

Operating instructions:

Plug the Z-Stick into the USB connector of a host controller such as a computer or a Z-Wave capable gateway. Software drivers for the Silabs CP2102 may need to be installed for the Z-Stick to be recognized on some computers.

Note
While in SerialAPI-mode, the ZStick is always listening (it is awake
and always in RX receive mode) for instructions and acts as a Z-Wave adapter and responds to commands sent through USB by the host processor software.
 

Z-Wave Functions:

  • Add/Remove Z-Wave products to your home network: This must be done through the host software which takes control of the Z-Stick USB adapter while the Z-Stick is in SerialAPI-Mode. Please consult the instruction manual of the host software to perform an inclusion or removal of Z-Wave nodes (i.e. "Add", "Include", "Pair", "Remove", "Exclude", etc.). This function can only be preformed via the host software.
  • Factory reset on the Z-Stick: This must be done through the host software which takes control of the Z-Stick USB adapter while the Z-Stick is in SerialAPI-Mode. Please consult the instruction manual of the host software to perform a network reset (i.e. factory reset on the Z-Stick). This function can only be preformed via the host software.
  • Add the Z-Stick to a pre-existing Z-Wave network: This must be done through the host software which takes control of the Z-Stick USB adapter while the Z-Stick is in SerialAPI-Mode. Please consult the instruction manual of the host software to add the Z-Stick to a pre-existing Z-Wave network (i.e. "Learn", "Sync", "Add as Secondary Controller", etc.).
