3. Advanced Z-Wave Parameters
3.1. Association Groups
Z-Wave devices can control other devices directly. This direct control is called association in Z-Wave. The device ID of the device to be controlled must be stored in the controlling devices. This is done in so-called association groups. An association group is always linked to an event in the controlling device (keystroke or triggering of a sensor). When this event occurs, a control command – usually a BASIC SET – is sent to all devices stored in an association group.
The device supports the following association groups:
Group 1 (the Z-Wave controller)
- The Lifeline Association is automatically established between the Z-Wave controller and the device at inclusion and defines what information is exchanged between the Z-Wave controller and the device.
Group 2, 3 and 4 (direct association with up to 5 terminals)
- When a signal input (IN 1-3) is triggered, the unit first sends a BASIC Set ON. When the preset timer expires, it sends a BASIC Set OFF.
