Product Description

Product Description

Ge 45600 Z-Wave Basic Handheld Remote

From the Manufacturer

GE's SmartHome Lighting Control products with Z-Wave technology allow you to control individual or groups of lights with a compact remote control in your home or office. Z-Wave is a radio frequency, mesh network technology specifically designed for use in residential lighting control. Every Z-Wave enabled wall switch is capable of relaying commands and utilizes two-way communications to ensure reliable operation throughout the entire home. The open-air, line-of-sight transmission distance is up to 100 feet between devices. Actual performance in a home will depend on the number of walls between the remote controller and the destination device, the type of construction and the number of devices installed in the system. The device's ability to relay commands and acknowledge receipt of commands makes Z-Wave an ideal solution for automating and controlling lighting systems.

Customer Reviews

Do not waste your money: this will waste your time and effort!
Just a heads-up -- this remote did not work with our existing Z-Wave network with Homeseer as the master controller.
Sean R.
The remote works as advertised and has good range for what I needed it for.

Let me just start off by saying that this remote is one of the hardest things to get right with the Vera Lite controller I have. But once you know how to do it, it's not that bad. Here's the tricks I learned by putting together a bunch of stuff on other blogs and bulletins from other users (thanks to them).

1. If you use this as a secondary controller with the Vera acting as the primary, I don't believe it will control the lights with the LIGHTS option on the remote. But it can control SCENES so just create scenes on your Vera for it to control.

2. To get it working, simply pair the GE remote to the Vera just like it was another Z-Wave light module. Put the Vera into Pairing Mode and on the GE, press and hold down the SETUP button until the green and red lights flash twice. Then enter the programming code 967. After they pair, the GE remote will show up on the Vera device dashboard as a Scene Controller.

3. Now create some scenes on the Vera and associate it with the GE remote by doing the following steps. Do this in the Vera's Automation menu.

A. Create a new scene and give it a meaningful name - like "GE Table Lamp ON"
B. Put the scene into the correct room if you want - like "Living Room"
C. Now select the device you want to turn ON - like the table lamp, and select the ON function.
D. Now go into the TRIGGERS function for the new scene. The GE remote will be the trigger for this scene.
E. Click on the "Add Trigger" button to create a new Trigger and do the following.

Device: Select the "scene controller" for the GE remote that was paired in the beginning. You should see it at the bottom of the list if it was the latest device paired. It should look like "#18_Scene Controller".

If the manual was well written this would be a five star review.

This remote was added to an existing Z-Wave network that consisted of only Instamatic products. I'm guessing that most people will want to use this as a secondary remote due to the lack of an LCD display so I hope that I can save you some time. Once your existing master remote is set to transmit your network configuration, all you need to do on this remote is hold setup until the two LEDs blink and press 967. This was not clear in the manual that came with the remote though I understand GE is working to rewrite the instructions. Again, this advice is coming from someone with an Instamatic controller and Instamatic devices.

The other issue that is unclear is the shift command to utilize the 10 through 18 register. One would think that shift + 1 would be 11 but with this remote, that would trigger event 10. For example, I have outdoor lighting set to scene 12. To turn this on I would need to press shift and then 3.

I don't want to make the setup and utilization seem complicated because it really isn't, but I want to offer one more piece of information that may make or break the purchase decision for an individual. There are buttons for Light, Group, and Scene at the top of the remote as well as an All button on the third row. Think of these as modes for the remote. For example, when you press Scene, even if you use it 100 times and let is sit for a month, your number selection will continue to activate "Scenes" until you select one of the other options. This was great for me as the remote by the garage door stays in All mode. That means that if I press any rocker switch it will continue to turn ALL of the programmed lights on or off. It won't revert to only turning off a specific light.

The unit takes three AAA batteries which are not included. The unit does provide visual confirmation of command execution through the red and green LEDs.

Here is my setup: I have the Simon XT and use Frontpoint Security ( powered). Shout out to them as they are goooooood.

Now on to the review, or more like: some hints and tips to make this work with the Simon XT and XTi.

When I received this item I had to go and find the manual online. Just do a search for 45600 Z-WAVE and you will get a link to some PDF's. The standard PDF manual for this item is misleading and for that I deducted a star.

Thankfully, reviewers like Mike left hints on Amazon pointing to the fact that it can be done. Even by the novice.
I will say it a little more detailed than reviewer Mike but it is essentially his tutorial:

Simon XT 1.3 or higher
- At keypad: System Programming > Enter Code > Interactive Services > Z-Wave Setup > Add Device

THEN PUT THE REMODE IN PAIRING MODE (essentially you are following Mike's comment that you need to start at the bottom of page 11 where it says COPYING NETWORK AND/OR DEVICE INFORMATION TO THIS REMOTE):
- Press and hold SETUP on the remote until the red and green light blink twice
- Then on the remote enter 9 6 7
The green LED's on the remote will blink twice.


If you do this diligently it will work. No need for complicated workarounds with scenes etc that others described elsewhere.
Anyways, thanks Mike and hope my re-run helps others.

For the 11 bucks I paid this little remote is worth it.
Great as a panic button and get a few to keep in various rooms.
