This keypad is a security enabled Z-Wave Plus product. An security enabled Z-Wave controller must be used to fully utilize this product. The keypad allows securely controlling devices - such as door locks - and trigger actions in a gateway – such as arm/disarm alarm system– based on the entry of certain key codes. Additionally a bell key allows emulating a doorbell by operating e.g. a chimney or a light or both.
The device can operate in two different modes. The mode is chosen the way the device is included into a Z-Wave network:
(a) Stand Alone Mode. In this case the keypad acts as the primary network controller and will include other devices such as e.g. a strike lock control or a chimney. No other central controller is needed. The management of user codes is done using the keypad itself.
(b) Network Mode. The keypad is included as additional device into an exiting network. In Z-Wave terms it will then act as secondary controller. It will send commands to a central controller and is managed by this controller. In this mode the device can still directly control door locks but it can also be used to trigger scenes in a central controller.
The device is protected by a tamper switch sending out an alarm message when the enclosure is opened.
