Use Aeon Labs Key Fob

Aeon Labs Key Fob

The Aeon Labs Key Fob is a nice and small remote control for Z-Wave devices, it might be a little hard to understand the manual and the different modes it has though.
In order to make it easier to use, we've put together a small guide on how to include and configure this device.

The Key Fob can act as a Primary Controller if you don't have an existing Z-Wave network, but we will include it into the TellStick ZNet Lite Z-Wave network.
Start by add a new device in Telldus Live!. Use a pin or paperclip and push the learn button located on the back side of the Key Fob.
Give the new device a name.

Until now, the Key Fob has been in the Setup mode. Now we need to change the mode to Use Mode.
Use a pin or paperclip and push the learn button and the mode button for 3 seconds.
The LED will light up red for 3 seconds and then green for 1 second, confirming the mode change.

Since TellStick ZNet Lite does not support Z-Wave Scenes at the moment, we'll need to use the group mode to control devices.
Group mode is the default mode. To check the current mode, click on the device in Telldus Live!, click Edit device, Click Configuration, Click Advanced settings, check configuration number 250, it should be set to Group mode.

Now it's time to select a device to control from the Key Fob.
The device you wish to control needs to be included to TellStick ZNet Lite.
Depending on the mode of the device when it's paired with the Key Fob, the button will act as follows:
ON - Toggle the device
OFF - Turn off the device
DIM - Toggle dim on the device.
Press and hold the button on the Key Fob that you wish to use.
Start learn mode on the device. Please refer to the manual if you're unsure how to do this.
Release the button on the Key Fob.

If the device is controlled using the same button as start learn mode, you'll need to set the correct state before you start the learn mode.
Many switches start learn mode by pressing three times on the button that also controls the device.
When pressing three times, the status will also change three times. Make sure the device is OFF before starting learn mode if you want the Key Fob button to toggle the device.
