Customer Question
I purchased my second...

I purchased my second DZPA1 plug-in appliance module for my Z-Wave system. On the first one the "programming button" also acts as a manual switch. On the new one, it programs and operates fine with the Z-Wave system, but there is no manual function with pressing that button, Am I missing something?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I bought it Saturday and installed it yesterday.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, I've done the entire Z-Wave system myself.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Other than that I'm a bit more than an amateur.

Sure.

I suggest cancelling the program to start over again.

  1. Unplug the load leaving the unit plugged in.
  2. Push and hold button for 7 seconds, it should turn Amber.
  3. Push and hold button again for 7 seconds to clear program.
  4. Plug in the load in the on position and reset the program.
