Zipabox offers the possibility to communicate natively with Z-Wave technology. Let’s see how to add a generic detector Z-Wave as the opening sensor Everspring HSM02.

In the Zipabox configuration interface we have to click on “Add Device”.

As Zipabox supports different protocols, we have to define what type of module we will add. Choose “Generic Z-Wave” and then click “Join”).

Now we have 120 seconds to press the connect button on the module we are going to add (press once or three times depending on the module). In the case of HSM02 detector it must be three fast successive times.

Once the device is added and saved, you can close the window.

After updating the page (press F5 on the keyboard), and look for the device in the list of sensors (sensor panel).

By simulating a door that opens, you can check the correct operation of the module.

Detector information

Then the module can be assigned to a room, indicated the type of detector and selected a name and description.

The detector communicates with Zipabox! If you have other modules of this type to add, follow the same procedure.
