How to Add Your ZEN34 Remote Switch to Hubitat
print icon

The ZEN34 Remote Switch is officially integrated with Hubitat so it will work, but may have some limitations. 

You won't be able to program direct associations for the Remote Switch since Hubitat doesn't expose these settings in the interface. The device's advanced settings can only be accessed once you download the custom device driver. Without the driver, you'll still be able to use the device as a button controller with basic Hubitat support to use the single tap (pressed), double tap, held, and released triggers that can be programmed in the Rule Machine app.


With the advent of Z-Wave long range (ZWLR), Hubitat now offers the option to include your long range supporting devices via standard Z-Wave mesh or with ZWLR. You can read more here about how the standard mesh and ZWLR differ and decide which is the best method for you.


Standard Mesh Inclusion Options

Smart Start Inclusion

On the Hubitat app:

  1. Open the Tools tab (wrench icon on the bottom)
  2. Scroll to the bottom, select Z-Wave
  3. This will take you to a screen where you can select either Smart Start or regular inclusion
  4. Select Smart Start
  5. This will take you to the smart start inclusion list. Devices will be displayed there that are in the process of inclusion through Smart Start.
  6. Select the QR symbol in the top right to open the camera for the DSK scan; scan the QR code printed on the back.
  7. Power the device (important to do this AFTER QR scan)
  8. The device integration will begin. The window will appear asking you to name the device; click Save after naming
  9. Finishing inclusion may take a few minutes 

If you have any issues with Smart Start Inclusion on Hubitat, please review this video: The steps should be the same whether you have a C-7 or C-8.


Manual Inclusion

  1. Open Hubitat in your Internet browser

  2. Go to Devices

  3. Click on + Add Device in the top right corner

  4. Click on Z-Wave

  5. Click on Start Z-Wave Inclusion

  6. While the app says is in inclusion mode, tap the upper paddle of the switch 6 times as quickly as possible (the LED indicator will start blue and will turn green to confirm inclusion)

  7. Rename and confirm the found device.

Z-Wave Long Range (ZWLR) Inclusion

If you want to include the device with ZWLR, first ensure you're using the model C-8 hub or later, with a minimum platform version of 2.3.9 or later in the US region only. You also need to ensure your device model and firmware version support ZWLR.


Next, you'll want to install the SmartStart Manager app. You can read more details on this custom app here, and be sure to thank Jeff for his work on the app!


To include the device as a ZWLR device, Z-Wave SmartStart must be used. Note that all ZWLR devices must support SmartStart, but not all SmartStart devices support ZWLR. SmartStart will still include the device as a traditional Z-Wave node if LR is not supported.

To add a device using SmartStart with ZWLR in Hubitat once the SmartStart Manager app is installed:

  • Locate the SmartStart QR code for the device on the lower metal plate of the switch. The QR code sticker also contains the numeric DSK (device-specific key) next to it; you will need this later. Do not power on the device at this time.
    • For the Hubitat 2.0 mobile app: go to Devices > + (plus icon) > Add SmartStart Devices
    • For the current 1.x app --- do not edit the SmartStart entry as LR is not manually selectable at this time) Tools > Z-Wave Tools.
  • Select the SmartStart button.
  • Select the QR code icon from the top-right (and allow camera access for the app if prompted).
  • Scan the QR code for the device that you located in Step 1. 
  • Provide a name for the device when prompted (to be used on the hub, e.g., "Living Room Dimmer" or "Hallway Motion"; this can be changed on the hub later).
  • Power on the switch. The inclusion process should start immediately and the device should be automatically added to your hub.

If your Remote Switch won’t pair with Hubitat, try excluding the device first. The process can help with a variety of configuration issues before you try to connect it again.
