The installation of your NERO-REED has two major steps: the Main Sensor and the Magnet. Your NERO-REED will use wireless technology to talk to your Z-Wave network once paired with your NEXUS-NERO Communications Gateway.
When installing the NERO REED, please ensure:
The NERO-REED is installed indoors, away from sources of moisture.
The NERO-REED is placed within 20 meters of another Z-Wave device that is either a NEXUS-NERO or 240v devices
The magnet and the main sensor must be less than 1.6cm apart for the small magnet installation or 2.5cm apart for the big magnet installation. Main sensor must be affixed to the door or window and the magnet must be affixed to the frame. The magnet and the main sensor must separate when the door or window is opened.
The NERO-REED is not mounted on a metal frame
- Affix your Back Mounting Plate and Magnet to a surface. The Back Mounting Plate can be affixed using screws or double-sided tape and should be mounted on the apex angle of the door. The Magnet must be affixed using double-sided tape and can’t exceed the valid range, see the figure below.
1. There are 2 types of Magnets (Magnet 1: 30mm×6mm×2mm, Magnet 2: 30mm×10mm×2mm) , the size of magnet 2 is a little larger than magnet 1, so the magnetism of magnet 2 is stronger than the magnet 1.
2. You can choose to install each one of magnet on the door frame according to your need or the distance between the door and frame, see the figure below.
3. Keep Magnets away from children to avoid swallowing.
When the Back Mounting Plate is affixed by the double-sided tape, wipe the two surfaces clean of any oil or dust with a damp towel. When the surface has completely dried, peel one side of the tape back and attach it to the corresponding section on the rear side of the Back Mounting Plate
Next step is to sync your NERO-REED to NEXUS-NERO.
