How to Add Your ZEN15 Power Switch to SmartThings

Be sure to include your ZEN15 Power Switch to the network BEFORE connecting it to any device or appliance. 

Since it is officially integrated, you'll be able to control the ZEN15 Power Switch remotely out of the box. However, we recommend you have the custom device handler added so you can access advanced settings and customize the plug. Once the handler is installed and shows up in your IDE portal, you can include the ZEN15 Power Switch to your network. Here's how:

If you're using the newer app: 

  1. Tap the plus icon in the home screen
  2. Tap Device
  3. Tap "Scan nearby" (in the corner of the screen)
  4. While the app says "Scanning...", press the Z-Wave button 3 times very quickly  (LED indicator will start flashing)
  5. The app will indicate when the device connects
  6. Tap Edit to rename the device, and tap Done to save the name
  7. Tap Done to complete the setup

If you're using the Classic app:   

  1. Plug the ZEN15 Power Switch into an outlet within direct range of SmartThings
  2. Press and release the Z-Wave button while making sure the LED indicator is on.
  3. Add the ZEN15 Power Switch to SmartThings by clicking "Add thing" on your app and pressing the Z-Wave button 3 times very quickly
  4. The LED indicator will start flashing blue, then turn blue (on) or pink (off) once included
  5. A new on / off device will appear on your device list

Once you include the ZEN15 Power Switch and move it to its final location, it never hurts to perform network repair to optimize connectivity. This will help SmartThings find the best communication route to the ZEN15 Power Switch. Here's how to repair the network
