Here is a full list of advanced settings (parameters) for ZEN17 Universal Relay:

Some parameters were added in later firmware updates so please make sure you're on the latest firmware to have all of the settings below available. You can view the change log for the ZEN17 here.

On / Off Status After Power Failure

Parameter 1: Set the on/off status for the relays after power failure.

Values: 

0 – ALL relays forced to OFF (regardless of state prior to power outage);

1 – ALL relays remember and restore on/off status after power failure (default);

2 – ALL relays forced to ON (regardless of state prior to power outage);

3 – Relay 1 remembers and restores on/off status after power failure, Relay 2 forced to ON;

4 – Relay 2 remembers and restores on/off status after power failure, Relay 1 forced to ON.

Input Type for Relay 1 (S1)

Parameter 2: Choose the wall switch or input type you want to connect to the S1 C terminals.

Values:
0 – momentary for lights only;

1 – toggle switch (light on when the switch is toggled up, light off when the switch is toggled down);

2 – toggle switch (state changes whenever the switch is toggled);
3 – garage door momentary mode (for Z-Wave control );

4 – leak alarm (water sensor);
5 – heat alarm;

6 – motion alert;

7 – open/close alert (door sensor);

8 – CO alarm;

9 – CO2 alarm;
10 – on/off report (dry contact switch/sensor);

11 – garage door mode for the relay (momentary contact) and door sensor type for the input (use with wired analog door/window sensors and garage gate openers). 
Default: 2.

NOTE: Press and hold the Z-Wave button for 5 seconds to change to garage mode manually.
IMPORTANT: If you set this parameter to value 4-11, you’ll need to exclude and re-include the device (without changing any settings) so that a child device is created for the input of your choice!

Parameter 19: Reverse the reported values for your selected input type on S1 C terminals (select the same value as you chose for parameter 2 to reverse the values for open and closed circuit).

Values:
0 – values reported as normally open, not reversed (default);

4 – leak alarm (water sensor);
5 – heat alarm;

6 – motion alert;

7 – open/close alert (door sensor);

8 – CO alarm;

9 – CO2 alarm;
10 – on/off report (dry contact switch/sensor);

NOTE: This will not affect the relay behavior if you leave the input linked to the output, it will still trigger the relay to on when the circuit is closed (if connected between NO-C), regardless of the reported value. This setting only affects the reports displayed in the hub for the input and does not affect the relay (output) behavior.

Default: 2.

NOTE: Press and hold the Z-Wave button for 5 seconds to change to garage mode manually.
IMPORTANT: If you set this parameter to value 4-11, you’ll need to exclude and re-include the device (without changing any settings) so that a child device is created for the input of your choice!

NOTE: click-click'and'hold (so click and hold the second time) the Z-Wave button for 5 seconds to change this mode (each time you repeat the button sequence it down it will take you to the next mode in the setting).

Size: 1 byte dec

Size: 1 byte dec.

Input Trigger for Relay 1

Parameter 10: Choose if you’d like the connected input (switch) on S1 C / VC C to trigger the load connected to R1 or if you want to use the input reports for monitoring only and separate the output from the input.
Values: 0 – input trigger disabled; 1 – input trigger enabled (default).
Size: 1 byte dec.

DC Motor Mode

Parameter 24: Sync R1 and R2 together to prevent them from being activated at the same time.
Values:

0 – DC motor mode disabled (relays will activate whenever they're triggered);

1 – DC motor mode enabled (relay will check the status of the other relay after being triggered and will shut the other relay off before activating so that only one of the relays is on at the same time).
Default: 0.
Size: 1 byte dec.

Input Trigger Duration

Parameter 25: Set trigger duration for input 1 to make sure the contact made at the input is recorded by the device and the output is triggered and the status is reflected in the hub. The value of this setting corresponds to the amount of time contact needs to be made for at the input for the status change to be recorded. This is especially useful when using the Universal Relay with doorbells or other buttons that may be pushed for a very short instant or when sensors are connected on the input side and you need to record every single status change even when they occur in less than half a second.
Values:

0 – 100 where value 1 stands for 0.1 second and value 100 stands for 10 seconds.

Default: 5.
Size: 1 byte dec.

 

Parameter 26: Set trigger duration for input 2 to make sure the contact made at the input is recorded by the device and the output is triggered and the status is reflected in the hub. The value of this setting corresponds to the amount of time contact needs to be made for at the input for the status change to be recorded. This is especially useful when using the Universal Relay with doorbells or other buttons that may be pushed for a very short instant or when sensors are connected on the input side and you need to record every single status change even when they occur in less than half a second.
Values:

0 – 100 where value 1 stands for 0.1 second and value 100 stands for 10 seconds.

Default: 5.
Size: 1 byte dec.

Fixed Input Actions

Parameter 27: Set a fixed action to the inputs on your Universal Relay. This will enable custom input behavior where you'll have dedicated inputs triggering only one action for the selected relay. For example, you can connect something to input 1 to only turn relay 1 ON whenever the input changes state and connect something to input 2 to only turn relay 1 OFF whenever the input changes state. This setting is designed for rare and niche scenarios so please do not use it unless your unique situation requires it.
Values:

0 – Disabled (default)
1 – IN1 for ON on R1, IN2 for OFF on R1
2 – IN1 for ON on R2, IN2 for OFF on R2
3 – IN1 for ON on R1 and R2, IN2 for OFF on R1 and R2

Default: 0.
Size: 1 byte dec.

 

Simultaneous On/Off Operation of R1/R2 (Only available on VER 2.0 800 Series)

Parameter 28: When Parameter 2 is set with values 0-3, S1/C input will trigger both relays R1/R2 at the same time for on/off; when either R1 or R2 are triggered via the hub interface, this will trigger both R1 and R2 on/off at the same time. With Parameter 28 enabled, the S2/C input is automatically separated from the output and can be used independently for monitoring purposes only (with Parameter 3 set to values 4-10 ONLY).
Values:

0 – Disabled (default)
1 – Enabled

Default: 0.
Size: 1 byte dec.
