Help to Start--How do I add GoControl Devices to my System?


(Emerson Vier) #1

I Just start here, I have:

  • 1 x Samsung SmartThings Hub
  • 5 x Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor
  • 1 x WA105DBZ-1 GoControl Z-Wave Siren and Strobe
  • 5 x WADWAZ-1 GoControl Z-Wave Door/Window Sensor
  • 2 x WAPIRZ-1 GoControl Z-Wave PIR Motion Detector
  • 1 x Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd

For now I only connect Nest( I foolwing instrutions Nest Manager 4.0) and Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor.

I need help/directions to install other sensors.

Those are all standard Z wave devices. You can just follow the general instructions.

You will need to check the owners manual for each individual device to see what you have to do with that device to complete the pairing (“inclusion”) process. Typically it’s pressing a button on the device, but you need to check each device’s manual.

I tried add WA105DBZ-1, “+ Add a Thing” then start to “Looking for device” after fews seconds show “Z-Wave Switch”, I remove and try again, only show me “Z-Wave Switch”.

That’s correct, the siren will initially add as a switch, because it can be turned on and off.

After you get it added if you want to change it to a device type handler that will give you control of more of the siren features, you can do that.

Here is the FAQ for using custom code:

And here is the thread where you can get a custom device type handler for the siren:

You can ask any follow on questions about the siren in that thread and people will be glad to help you.

I have this sensor also, and can’t find the device at all. I have it right next to my hub and press the tamper button for 1 second, nothing, 3 seconds, nothing… if I do it for a long time the alarm goes off so I know it is working, any suggestions? It searches and searches and doesn’t find it.
