How to Add Your ZEN26 On/Off Switch to Home Assistant
print icon

Once you've wired up your switch and confirmed that it works 100% of a time as a manual switch, it's time to add it to your network. 

Here's how to do it:

  1. In Home Assistant: open Configuration Integrations Z-Wave JS > Configure.
  2. Click on Add node.
  3. Click on Start Inclusion to initiate pairing.
  4. Tap the UPPER paddle 3 times as quickly as possible (LED indicator will start flashing)
  5. Home Assistant will confirm that the switch was added, and it will be immediately visible in your device list. 

Once the switch has been added to your hub, you'll be able to create rules for it, control it remotely, and customize it via the advanced settings.


Zooz products are now officially integrated with the new ZWaveJS integration of Home Assistant. If you're experiencing issues with accessing the advanced settings of your ZEN26 we would recommend first updating to the JS integration then excluding and re-including your device to your network in order for it to be recognized correctly.


If you are having issues adding the switch to your network, the first thing to try is exclusion which is a type of soft Z-Wave reset. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help pairing your switch to Home Assistant, or if you have any other questions!
