Add Strips Comfort 700 to your Z-Wave™ Controller

Strips 700-series is a SmartStart enabled product and can be added to a Z-Wave™ network by using SmartStart. Start by scanning the Z-Wave™ QR Code present on the back label of the Strip, or on the DSK leaflet present in the box. Strips can be added to both secure and non-secure controllers and with or without SmartStart.

Add Strips Comfort 700 using SmartStart inclusion

You can use this method of inclusion only if your Z-Wave™ Controller supports SmartStart.

  1. Open your Z-Wave™ Controller’s app and select SmartStart inclusion.
  2. Scan the QR Code (You can find the QR Code on the back of Strips or in the package).
  3. Move +Switch towards the centre and remove the magnet from the back of Strips. (See picture below).
  4. One long LED blink means that Strips has been successfully added to your Z-Wave™ network.

SmartStart will automatically begin after 30 seconds and Strips will be added within 10 minutes if activated within the Z-Wave™ Controller range.

Switch-LoRaWAN

Add Strips Comfort 700 using classic inclusion (Non SmartStart Controllers)

  1. Open your Z-Wave™ Controller’s application and start pairing mode.

  2. Move +Switch towards the centre and remove the magnet from Strips (If you have previously removed the magnet from Strips, or need to re-add the device, performing a manual wake up will join the device when the controller is in pairing mode).

  3. One long LED blink means that Strips has been successfully added to your Z-Wave™ network.

To perform a manual wake up:

  1. Take the magnet, move it to the rounded edge and wait for the blink. Then move the magnet away.
  2. Repeat this 3 times. A final short blink will confirm that the user command was successful.

Switch-LoRaWAN

Strips and radio communication

Strips uses low power radio signals to communicate with your Z-Wave™ controller. For best results, please consider the following:

Strips should not be mounted directly on metal, magnetic surfaces or encased within a metal structure as the range will reduced. Strips’ range is up to 100 meters. (325 feet) Any non-battery Z-Wave™ device will act as an extender to increase network reliability and range.

Poor network reliability will affect Strips’ battery life. To make sure that you have a good network, place Strips at its intended location and perform a Wake Up (see below). If Strips blinks 5 times, this indicates that Strips failed to communicate with the controller. If it happens you may move the Z-Wave™ controller closer or add an extender between the controller and Strips sensor.

To perform a manual wake up:

  1. Take the magnet, move it to the rounded edge and wait for the blink. Then move the magnet away.
  2. Repeat this 3 times. A final short blink will confirm that the user command was successful.

Switch-LoRaWAN

Test Strips has been included to your Z-Wave™ controller

Make sure Strips Comfort 700 is connected to your controller

To make sure that Strips is connected to your network:

Once added to your network, Strips will send a temperature, light (LUX), humidity report after one minute after a completed inclusion. Make sure that Strips status is updated in your Z-Wave controller.

Mounting Strips

Mounting Strips Comfort 700

Mounting Strips Comfort 700 using adhesives

Strips Comfort has an adhesive backing which can be used to mount Strips. Please make sure the surface is clean, dry and at least +10°C (+50°F). Remove the protective tape from Strips and place Strips firmly on a surface.

Note* Strips adhesive is permanent and may damage your Strips or the surface upon removal. If you need to remove Strips make sure to follow the necessary steps found here.

Mounting Strips Comfort 700 using the mounting plate

See the plate to mark the holes, and use the screws to mount the mounting plate. Remove the protective tape from Strips’ adhesive. Mount Strips Comfort on the marked “Strips Side” of the mounting plate as illustrated below.

Switch-LoRaWAN

Removing Strips from its mounted position

To easily remove Strips when the sensor is mounted with the adhesive backing, simply get floss or something similar, and gently draw it behind the back of the device and the surface it is mounted on and run the string up or down the length of the Strip, removing it from the surface.
