Just 1 two-colors LED and 1 Reed Switch provide a user interface aimed to:

  • get diagnostics
  • enroll a node on the network
  • restore factory defaults or switch-off a node

Please, keep in mind that the enrolling is a procedure that involves also the Base Station, that must be ready to accept the enrolling of the node.

The commands are given by a magnet to be approached the reed contact: the number of blinks defines the command itself. Just found the command you want, move the magnet.

The use of a magnet makes interactions possible also when hardware is sealed in a (trasparent) box.

ORANGE 1 Show status.
The LED blinks according to the module network link status for 10 seconds.
See Network diagnostics.
ORANGE 2 Test mode.
The device starts a test session, sending test frames to the Base Station every 5 seconds and the LED blinks according to the module network link status.
See Network diagnostics.
The module exits from test mode after 120 seconds. Show Status command stops the test procedure.
ORANGE 3 Enroll.
The network enroll procedure starts.
Command is valid only if the node is not enrolled yet.
After the command two leds blink accordingly to the module network link status.
ORANGE 4 Stop.
The device stops any network activity, putting hardware in a deep-sleep state.
ORANGE 5 Factory Default.
Restore the factory default parameters.

Warning! The commands (4) and (5) must be confirmed, giving the command twice, while LED fast blinks RED/GREEN.

Network Diagnostics

LED color and blinks report the radio signal levels.

GREEN 1 to 5 Good.
Above -90 [dBm]. More blinks, better signal.
ORANGE 1 to 5 Weak.
Below -90 [dBm]. More blinks, better signal, but GREEN is better.
RED 2 long (2 [s]) Off-Line.
Node is enrolled but not synchronized on the network.
RED 1 Not Enrolled.
Node is not (yet) enrolled.
