The Z-Wave A/C Controller is a smart Z-Wave controller which allows you to remotely control your air-conditioner using a compatible Z-Wave controller. It works with any Z-Wave compliant gateway or controller by translating Z-Wave Thermostat Commands to AC IR control code. User can select the IR code from the built‐in code library by using Z-Wave Configuration Commands according to the parameter table, or use the learning function through the gateway. The Z-Wave A/C Controller also has a built‐in temperature sensor which allows your gateway or controller to get the current room temperature.
The Z-Wave A/C Controller can be configured as either a “Frequently Listening Routing Slaves” (FLiRS) or an “Always Listening” node before including it to your Vera gateway. The FLiRS node type is for battery operated applications and it will enter sleep mode frequently in order to conserve battery power. The Always Listening node type is for areas where a fast response is required. It works with a 5V DC power source. Always Listening node can act as a repeater, which will re‐transmit the RF signal from the other Z-Wave devices in your network to ensure that the signal reaches its intended destination by routing the signal around obstacles and radio dead spots.
The Z-Wave A/C Controller also supports Network Wide Inclusion (NWI) and Explore Frames. It is compatible with Z‐Wave networks that contain multiple gateways and controllers. Like every Z‐Wave accessory, the user will need to include the Z-Wave A/C Controller into their Z‐Wave network using their primary controller. Then, the user can use either the primary or secondary controller to configure and setup the Z-Wave A/C Controller using Z‐Wave’s configuration command class. Once the configuration and setup is complete, the user can use the Z‐Wave “Thermostat commands class” to control their IR‐controlled air‐conditioner through the Z-Wave A/C Controller.
