That’s not all it says. This is what it says. I’ve added the numbers for clarity.
Z-Wave Remote Control
Include or exclude the Fixture Switch Module from the existing Z- Wave home control network with your primary controller.
1 Refer to your primary controller instructions to process the
inclusion / exclusion setup procedure.
2 When prompted by your primary controller, click once on the
PROG button or external switch.
3 The primary controller should indicate that the action was
successful. If the controller indicates the action was
unsuccessful, please repeat the procedure.
4 Once the Fixture Switch Module is part of the network, the
same basic procedure is used to add the Fixture Switch Module to groups or scenes. Refer to the primary controller’s instructions for details.
I know it’s a little confusing because they have put the include and exclude in the same set of instructions, but they do work a little differently.
First, Just understand the basic concept of a general exclude
A) Power on the device
B) issue the general exclude from your smartthings hub using the instructions at the link I gave in my previous post
C) physically manipulate the device based on the instructions in its manual so that it will accept the exclude command
So let’s see how these match up.
A) Begin by powering on the device.
B) now issue the general exclude from SmartThings as described. That’s the equivalent of step one in your RFM80 user manual
C) click once on either the PROG button on the RFM80 itself or hit the switch that you have wired to it. That’s step two in your RFM user manual
D) Your user manual now tells you there will be a step three where the controller will tell you that things worked, but that actually only applies when you are doing an include Or an exclude of a device which is already on your network, not a General exclude. (Sorry, I said it was confusing. )
But that should do it. If you have the RFM 80 wired to a switch, you’ll hit the switch. Otherwise you’ll hit the PROG button.
Step four doesn’t apply because again, that’s for an include, not an exclude.
