Power Strip#

The Z-Wave certified Power Strip application shows an extension block implementation used to turn on several devices that are connected to power. Examples include lights, appliances, etc.

The Power Strip Z-Wave certified application implements several endpoints, which can be controlled individually.

The Power Strip application is based on:

Role Type

Always On End device (AOS)

Supporting Device Type

Actuator

Device Type

Binary Switch

Generic Type

Switch Binary

Specific Type

Not Used

Requested security keys

S0, S2_UNAUTHENTICATED, and S2_AUTHENTICATED

Power Strip supports the "push mode" only of Notification CC and transmits the following notification types/events:

  • Power Management

    • Overload detected (both endpoint 1 and 2)

Association Groups#

The following three tables show the available association groups for Z-Wave and Z-Wave Long Range respectively. Backward compatibility for non-Multi Channel devices forces the root device AGI table to contain all the association groups mentioned in each of the endpoints AGI tables except from group 1, the Lifeline group.

Association groups for Root Device:#

ID

Name

Node Count

Description

1

Lifeline

Supports the following command classes:

  • Device Reset Locally: triggered upon reset.

  • Binary Switch Report: Triggered when the switch changes state.

  • Notification: triggered by the endpoints

  • Indicator Report: Triggered when LED1 changes state.

Usage of Buttons and LED Status#

To use the sample app, the BRD8029A Button and LEDs Expansion Board must be used. BTN0-BTN3 and LED0-LED3 refer to the buttons and LEDs on the Expansion Board.

The following LEDs and buttons shown in the next table below are used.

Button

Action

Description

Radio Board 1

Thunderboard 1

RST

Press

Resets the firmware of an application (like losing power). All volatile memory will be cleared.

BTN0

Keypress

Switch on/off endpoint 1

BTN1

Press

Enter "learn mode" (sending node info frame) to add/remove the device. Removing the device from a network will reset it.

Hold for at least 5 seconds and release

Perform a reset to factory default operation of the device, and a Device Reset Locally Notification Command is sent via Lifeline.

BTN2

Keypress

Dimming or switch on/off endpoint 1. Pressing push-button turns light on/off and holding push-button performs dimming of light (toggle up/down)

BTN3

Keypress

Toggles the transmission of an "Overload detected" notification. The first transmission, when enabled, will always be the first in the following list.

The notifications will be transmitted in the following pattern:

  1. Notification from endpoint 1: Overload detected

  2. Notification from endpoint 1: No event

  3. Notification from endpoint 2: Overload detected

  4. Notification from endpoint 2: No event

One notification will be transmitted every 30 seconds.

LED
