The Outdoor Light Module provides wireless control of on/off functions for incandescent and fluorescent outdoor lighting. The Outdoor Light Module allows you to turn connected landscaping and seasonal lights on/off anytime from anywhere, so you can control electric usage while still coming home to a well-lit house.
Manually test the power source and then the Outdoor Light Module for proper operation.
Connect the lamp or light directly to the power source without using the Outdoor Light Module. Turn the lamp on to confirm that the lamp works without the module connected. If the lamp fails to turn on without the Outdoor Light Module connected between it and the power source the problem could be one of the following reasons:
The light bulb is burned out and needs to be replaced
The lamp/light has malfunctioned and is in need of repair or replacement
The power source is not active and either needs a power switch turned on or a fuse or breaker replaced or reset. Electrical power sources that continually reset breakers or blow fuses should not be used and should be repaired by a qualified professional.
Disconnect the light or lamp from the power source and plug the Outdoor Light Module into it. Then connect the light or lamp to the Outdoor Light Module’s plug and turn the lamp on (note that the lamp/light will not illuminate until the Outdoor Light Module has been activated). If this does not occur, one of several things may be preventing operation:
The Outdoor Light Module was not successfully paired to your ZWave home network. If this is the case, you will not see the device as active and available for control in your Home Monitoring and Control system.
The Outdoor Light Module is placed too far from the gateway or repeater and is not receiving ZWave messages as a result. The ZWave has a maximum operating range of 65 to 85 feet, and dense walls and objects can reduce signal levels below those distances. All powered accessories (light modules, appliances modules, etc.) act as repeaters, strengthening a ZWave signal. Check your distance from the Outdoor Light Module to the gateway. If you aren’t sure, try placing a device such as an Indoor Light Module halfway between the gateway and your Outdoor Light Module, or unplug the Outdoor Light Module and move it to an outlet close to the Gateway to see if this solves the problem.
Plug the Outdor Light Module into any available working power outlet and make sure its power light is on. On the Outdoor Light Module, press and release the power button to manually operate the lamp plugged into the Outdoor Light Module.
