Add as inclusion controller in LMCE

This device can be added as inclusion controller and remote controller in your existing Z-Wave. Read for more information. To add this device to your network log in to your web admin. Under device-tree choose your Z-Wave node. Click on "Send command to device" and choose Add Node from the dropdown. Click SEND. On your Remotec open the panel on the back of your device where all the z-wave network control buttons are hidden behind. Forget the XpressZetup buttons, they won't be of any use if used in LMCE. Go into advanced config mode by holding "Conf" and "Remove" button together for 3 seconds. Go into learning mode by entering 8363 on the green group number buttons. If the red error led will not blink then everything went well. Your controller should now show up in LMCE. If not try a quick reload.

Including other devices using the ZURC

From now on you can use your Remotec to include other devices to the Z-Wave network simply by pushing the following button sequence: "Conf", "Add", "Device" and then push the button on your target device (see target device manual)

Removing other devices using the ZURC

You can also use your Remotec to delete other devices from your Z-Wave network by pushing the following button sequence: "Conf", "Delete", "Device" and then push the button on your target device (see target device manual)
