Button Combinations

The Gen 1 On/Off Switch has many different button combinations that indicate what the switch is doing or what settings and parameters are being changed.

Standard Button Combinations are used to either pair/remove your switch

Quick Tap Sequences is a quick and easy way to change the important parameters (ie: change LED status indicator or invert switch).

Pairing & Removing

To include (pair) your Gen 1 On/Off Switch (NZW30), put your hub in inclusion (pairing) mode and tap on the top of the paddle (on) 6x rapidly. The LED should blink a couple of times quickly and then long blink once if successful.

Quick Tap Sequences

The Gen 1 On/Off Switch has various settings and parameters you can change at the switch itself via a sequence of taps at the paddle.

Example: If you'd like to change the LED Indicator status on your Gen 1 On/Off Switch, you would tap on the top of the paddle (on) part of the paddle ten (10) times.

Enable/Disable Local Protection Mode

To enable or disable Local Protection Mode on your Gen 1 On/Off Switch, first, check the firmware version you have. For firmware version 1.03, tap the bottom of the paddle (off) eight (8) times rapidly. For firmware version 1.04, tap the bottom of the paddle (off) eight (8) times rapidly followed by the top of the paddle (on) two (2) times rapidly. This feature is not available on all other firmware versions.

Each time you go through the sequence via paddle taps, it will enable and then disable local protection mode.
