Can't Add My ZEN51 Dry Contact Relay to Home Assistant
print icon

If you are unable to include your ZEN51 Dry Contact Relay to Home Assistant, start by excluding the device. The relay can be excluded from Home Assistant even if it has never been successfully included. Exclusion acts as a soft reset to help with any configuration issues.

If Home Assistant is having trouble recognizing the device: 


  1. In Home Assistant: open Settings Devices and Services Z-Wave JS > Configure
  2. Click on Remove Device
  3. Click on Start Exclusion
  4. Click the Z-Wave button 3 times as quickly as possible (the LED indicator will start flashing). Alternatively, if the relay is already installed, you can simply toggle the external switch connected to ZEN51 very quickly from off to on, so: "up-down, up-down, up-down."
  5. Home Assistant will confirm that the device was removed, and you should now be able to add it to your system
