Product Description

The AEOTEC Door/Window Sensor 7 Pro is a sensor, which detects if your window is opened, closed or tilted. The sensor is easily retrofittable. Furthermore, the AEOTEC Door/Window Sensor can include other sensors by being connected with other binary sensors like NTC contacts, microswitches or flood sensors.

Thanks to its slim design the AEOTEC Door/Window Sensor 7 Pro can be installed unflashy on every window. The sensor just has to be installed on the window casement. Additionally, there has to be a slim magnet installed closely to the sensor at the window frame. By using a patented method the sensor can reliably detect the exact position of the window.

With the potential free input, the Door/Window Sensor can also include other sensors in your Z-Wave system. For that, the binary sensor is connected to the potential free input of the sensor. Besides sensors, there can also be connected momentary switches, which control scenes in your gateway.

Tripple clicking the tamper button includes (adds) and excludes (removes) the device. A single click on the button will wake up the device. The device supports the Z-Wave Security S2 framework with authenticated and unauthenticated network keys. Please follow the instructions on the central controller when including. The device also supports SmartStart.

Prepare for Installation / Reset

Please read the user manual before installing the product.

In order to include (add) a Z-Wave device to a network it must be in factory default state. Please make sure to reset the device into factory default. You can do this by performing an Exclusion operation as described below in the manual. Every Z-Wave controller is able to perform this operation however it is recommended to use the primary controller of the previous network to make sure the very device is excluded properly from this network.

Reset to factory default
This device also allows to be reset without any involvement of a Z-Wave controller. This procedure should only be used when the primary controller is inoperable.

Once Cover is removed and the tamper switch is tripped, push the tamper for 5 seconds until the RED LED blinks once. Then release tamper and push it again for 5 seconds while the RED LED is blinking until the GREEN LED blinks once.

Safety Warning for Batteries
The product contains batteries. Please remove the batteries when the device is not used. Do not mix batteries of different charging level or different brands.

Installation

The sensor can be mounted either on the moving part or on the fixed part of a door or a window. Mounting can be accomplished either using the tape by peeling off the protection foil or using two screws with the holes inside the battery compartment. If the tilt detection on a window (only normal windows, no roof windows) shall be used the sensor device must be placed on the moving part of the window and the magnet on the window frame.

The sensor comes with two types of magnets:

  • The standard magnet covered by plastic part, mountable beside the sensor. Make sure the two indicating lines on sensor enclosure and magnet are opposite to each other. The image on the right-hand side shows the position of magnet and sensor body.
  • A slim naked magnet to be mounted behind the sensor in case the sensor body is placed on the side of a window.
  • To use the tilting function, the opening angle of the window must be at least 5°. AeoTec Door / Window Sensor 7 Pro User Guide  & troubleshooting 3AeoTec Door / Window Sensor 7 Pro User Guide  & troubleshooting 4

For German-style windows where the window sits on top of the window frame mounting on the side of the window is highly recommended. If no tilting detection is used, the sensor can be placed on any position of the door or the window. In case tilting detection is desired the sensor should be placed on the upper side of the window.

Inclusion/Exclusion

On factory default the device does not belong to any Z-Wave network. The device needs to be added to an existing wireless network to communicate with the devices of this network. This process is called Inclusion.

Devices can also be removed from a network. This process is called Exclusion. Both processes are initiated by the primary controller of the Z-Wave network. This controller is turned into exclusion respective inclusion mode. Inclusion and Exclusion is then performed doing a special manual action right on the device.

Inclusion
1. Open the housing.
2. Remove the battery protection.
3. Press the tamper on the side of the appliance three times quickly.

Exclusion
1. Open the housing.
2. Press the tamper on the side of the appliance three times quickly.

Product Usage

Once installed the sensor will report “open” and “close” status changes to a central Z-Wave controller using notification commands. Additionally, the sensor can directly control other devices using association group 2. Using configuration commands the source of “open” and “close” events can be chosen between the internal magnet detector or external dry contact connected via the screw terminal. The device is protected by a tamper switch.

Tilt detection

The tilt detection allows reporting the way a window is opened. This is accomplished using the command class “binary sensor – tilt-type”. In case the window is closed or opened without tilting the tilt sensor will report “Off”. In case the window is tilted an “On” is reported. The angle of inclination of the window must be at least 5°.

Screw Terminal

The product must support the interconnection of external binary sensors as well as actuators and drycontacts. The product allows interconnection with external sensors/actuators via 3-pin screw terminals with the following pinout:

• #1: Ground
• #2: Digital Input
• #3: VCC (direct battery supply)

VCC + Ground terminals can be used to externally power the sensor with a 3.6V battery or special power adapter (which is not included in the scope of delivery). Digital + VCC is used to connect the external dry contact.

Link testing

When activated by configuration parameter #5 the device can perform a link test with device No.1. Doubleclicking the tamper will start the process. As a result, the GREEN LED will blink two times in case of success and the RED LED will blink two times in case of failure.

Scene Controller

When activated by configuration parameter #14 the device can perform as a scene controller. Digital + VCC is used to connect the scene button. The external dry contact will then act as a scene controller with a total of 7 scenes that can be activated:

· 1 – Contact Pressed 1 time
· 2 – Contact Pressed 2 time
· 3 – Contact Pressed 3 time
· 4 – Contact Pressed 4 time
· 5 – Contact Pressed 5 time
· 6 – Contact held down
· 7 – Contact released

The device sends the following notifications to the central controller:

· Window Opened(0x06 – 0x16)
· Window Closed(0x06 – 0x17)
· Tamper Removed(0x07 – 0x03)

The device sends the following sensor binary reports to the controller:
· Tilt(0x0B)

Node Information Frame

The Node Information Frame (NIF) is the business card of a Z-Wave device. It contains information about the device type and the technical capabilities. The inclusion and exclusion of the device is confirmed by sending out a Node Information Frame. Beside this it may be needed for certain network operations to send out a Node Information Frame. To issue a NIF execute the following action: Press the tamper once

Quick trouble shooting

Here are a few hints for network installation if things don’t work as expected.

  1. Make sure a device is in factory reset state before including. In doubt exclude before include.
  2. If inclusion still fails, check if both devices use the same frequency.
  3. Remove all dead devices from associations. Otherwise you will see severe delays.
  4. Never use sleeping battery devices without a central controller.
  5. Don’t poll FLIRS devices.
  6. Make sure to have enough mains powered device to benefit from the meshing

Firmware-Update over the Air

This device is capable of receiving a new firmware ‘over the air’. The update function needs to be supported by the central controller. Once the controller starts the update process, perform the following action to confirm the firmware update: Wake Up the device by removing the cover. Then hit the tamper switch once.

Association – one device controls an other device

Z-Wave devices control other Z-Wave devices. The relationship between one device controlling another device is called association. In order to control a different device, the controlling device needs to maintain a list of devices that will receive controlling commands. These lists are called association groups and they are always related to certain events (e.g. button pressed, sensor triggers, …). In case the event happens all devices stored in the respective association group will receive the same wireless command wireless command, typically a ‘Basic Set’ Command.

Association Groups:
