Light Strip Parameter Descriptions

Below we'll list out the parameter number, description, range, default value, size, firmware version it was implemented and an example of how to use it.


Dimming Speed & Ramp Rate Adjustment Parameters

Dimming speed refers to how fast or slow the light turns on when you change the dim level either remotely or locally (at the light strip) such as from 10-20%, 60-80%, etc.

Ramp rate refers to how fast or slow the light turns on when you either remotely or locally (at the light strip) bring the light strip from off to on (or on to off).

Parameter 2 - Dimming Speed

To change the dimming speed on your Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit, you would select Parameter 2 within your hub and then input a range of 0-98, with each interval equating to a slower speed meaning that a value of 1 dims the light strip fast, while 98 will dim it slow. The default value is 0, which will turn the strip on/off instantly.

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

  • Range: 0-98

    • 0 = Instant On (Mimics an On/Off Switch)

    • 1 = Fast

    • 98 = Slow

  • Default: 0

  • Size (Bytes): 1

  • Firmware Version Implemented: 1.20+

Parameter 3 - Ramp Rate

To change the ramp rate on your Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit, you would select Parameter 3 within your hub and then input a range of 0-99, with each interval equating to a slower speed meaning that a value of 1 ramps up the light strip fast, while 98 will ramp it slow. The default value is 99, which will keep sync to Parameter 2 (Dimming Speed).

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

  • Range: 0-99

    • 0 = Instant On (Mimics an On/Off Switch)

    • 1 = Fast

    • 98 = Slow

    • 99 = Sync to Parameter 2

  • Default: 99

  • Size (Bytes): 1

  • Firmware Version Implemented: 1.20+


Min / Max Dim Level, & Auto Off Timer Parameters

Minimum Dim Level refers to the minimum level the light strip will dim to.

Maximum Dim Level refers to the maximum level the light strip will dim to.

Auto-Off Timer refers to the light strip being turned off after a certain amount of time (in seconds).

Parameter 4 - Minimum Dim Level

To change the minimum dim level for how low your Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit dims to, you would select Parameter 4 within your hub and then input a range of 1-45, where the lower the numeric value equals the lower the minimum dim level (1 = 1%) and the higher the numeric value equals the higher the minimum dim level (45 = 45%) with the default being that the light strip will be at 1%.

This is typically used for fixing flickering bulbs or calibrating the bulb if it shuts off prior to 1%.

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

  • Range: 1-45

    • 1 = 1%

    • 45 = 45%

  • Default: 1

  • Size (Bytes): 1

  • Firmware Version Implemented: 1.20+

Parameter 5 - Maximum Dim Level

To change the maximum dim level for how high your Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit dims to, you would select Parameter 5 within your hub and then input a range of 55-99, where the lower the numeric value equals the lower the maximum dim level (55 = 55%) and the higher the numeric value equals the higher the maximum dim level (99 = 100%) with the default being that the light strip will be at 100%.

NOTE: The Z-Wave Command Class required for dimming (SwitchMultiLevel) only has a range of 0-99 (this is why you don't see 100 listed for 100%). We've scaled the range of 0-99 to equal 0-100 and in this case, 99 = 100%.

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

  • Range: 55-99

    • 55 = 55%

    • 99 = 100%

  • Default: 99

  • Size (Bytes): 1

  • Firmware Version Implemented: 1.20+

Parameter 6 - Auto-Off Timer

To set an auto-off timer where you can have your Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit turn off after a certain amount of seconds, you would select Parameter 6 within your hub and then input a range of 0-32767, where each interval is a second.

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

  • Range: 0-32767

    • 0 = Disabled

    • 1 = 1 second

    • 32767 = 32767 seconds

  • Default: 0

  • Size (Bytes): 2

  • Firmware Version Implemented: 1.20+


Default Levels, Level After Power Restored & LED Indicator Timeout Parameters

Default Level - Local refers to the default dim level the light strip goes to when turned on at the light strip (ie: if you set the default level to 60%, that's the percentage the light strip turns on to when you turn it on).

Default Level - Remote refers to the default dim level the light strip goes to when turned on remotely via the app (ie: if you set the default level to 60%, that's the percentage the light strip turns on to when you turn it on).

Power On State refers to the level the light strip will return to when power is restored to it (ie: after a power outage).

LED Indicator Timeout changes the amount of time (in seconds) the RGB Bar shows the Dim Level (ie: if you are actively dimming the light, the LED Bar will show you approximately what level the light is at -- the timeout is the time that indicator shows once you let go of the paddle)

Parameter 7 - Default Level - Local

To set the default level your Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit turns on to when you manually press the button on the light strip controller, you would select Parameter 7 within your hub and then input a range of 0-99, where a value of 0 means that the light strip will go to the last state it was in prior to being turned off and the lower the numeric value equals a lower dim level (1 = 1%) and the higher the numeric value equals a higher dim level (99 = 100%) with the default being that the light strip will return to the prior state it was in.

NOTE: The Z-Wave Command Class required for dimming (SwitchMultiLevel) only has a range of 0-99 (this is why you don't see 100 listed for 100%). We've scaled the range of 0-99 to equal 0-100 and in this case, 99 = 100%.

Parameter 9 - Default LED Color

To adjust the color of the LED Bar on the Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit find Parameter 9 in your hub's UI and change accordingly. The easiest way to determine a color's value is to go to the Inovelli Toolbox, select, "Dimmer Switch (LZW31-SN)" and then select, "LED" and use the slider to select a color (ie: 170 is blue). The default is 170 which is Blue. NOTE: The above link will take you to our switch page, but the numeric values are the same for the light strip.

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

Parameter 1 - Number of Pixels

The light strip controller needs to know how many pixels are attached to it if there are extensions added to it. In order to let the Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit (LZW45) know how many pixels are attached to it, please find Parameter 1 in your hub's UI and change accordingly. Each integer represents a pixel and you can choose from 1-130 pixels. The default value is 0, which means the controller will auto-detect (you must manually override this if you use light strip extensions).

Other Parameters

Light Strip Delay refers to the delay between when you press the button on the light strip controller and the light strip turns on. By default, there is a 700ms delay to account for multi-taps (scene control). In other words, the light strip does not turn on right away because it's waiting for a potential multi-tap. You can turn this delay off, but you will lose multi-tap control on the paddle (you will still have it on the config/favorites button).

Parameter 51 - Light Strip Delay

To turn off the delay between when the Red Series Light Strip Controller Kit is pressed and the light turns on/off find Parameter 51 and enter a value of 0 which allows for, "instant on/off" and will turn the light on/off as soon as you let go of the paddle. Please note that if you set the light strip to, "instant on/off" it will disable multi-tap scene control. The default is a value of 1, which has a 700 millisecond delay. Please make sure you have firmware version 1.47 or above to use this feature.

Range, Default, Size & Firmware Version Implemented

  • Range: 0-1

    • 0 = No Button Delay (0ms)

    • 1 = 700 Millisecond Delay

  • Default: 1
