Add Strips Comfort SC 800 to your Z-Wave™ Controller

Comfort SC 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 Strips, 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.

*US and Canada users can also add Strips as Long Range secure with SmartStart. Your device supports Long Range only if it has the following logo on the product box and Strips

Add Strips Comfort SC 800 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 pairing.
  2. Scan the QR Code (You can find the QR Code on the back of Strips or in the package).
  3. Perform a manual wake up by swiping the round edge of Strips 3 times within 10 seconds.
  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.


  • Once the device is in SmartStart mode and not paired, it will attempt pairing with SmartStart for the first 15 mins, and thereafter every 3.5 hrs for a period of a month.
  • If SmartStart fails pairing the first time, Strips will restart SmartStart. If it fails again, the device will reset.
  • If none of the above is successful, you need to perform a manual wake-up to start SmartStart.
  • In order to cancel SmartStart mode, the user can perform a Factory Default Reset

Add Strips Comfort SC 800 using classic inclusion (Non SmartStart Controllers)

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

  2. Perform a manual wake up

To perform a manual wake up (video):

  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.


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.
