This is a preliminary documentation of the wireless receiver up to v1.27 (the current version so far). So the information presented in this documentation may be subject to change in the future.

The wireless switch does not have an address on our system. The wireless switch can only be mapped into the wireless receiver. The wireless receiver is the device that sits on our bus and be programmed like an ordinary switch by our system.
A simplified drawing of the front and back of the wireless switch is shown above. On the back of the wireless switch there is a “0” and “I” marking. “0” designates the top of the switch while “I” designates the bottom of the switch. Please ignore the “TOP” marking on the front of the wireless switch when considering switch orientation. The text “1”, “2”, “3”, and “4” shows which are Buttons 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the wireless switch.
The wireless receiver takes up 2 addresses in PANEL/SWITCH TYPES screen, which is known as BUS MAP for newer clock versions. When wireless switches are used in conjunction with the wireless receiver, the receiver is designated as a “14 Btn. Switch”. An example is shown below.
A wireless switch needs to be mapped into the wireless receiver memory before it can be used. The procedure for mapping in the wireless switch to the wireless receiver memory can be done by performing the following steps:
1. Refer to the screens below. Go to the switch button assignment screen from address #55. Highlight “PAGE 1-3” and press ENTER.
2. The version number of the wireless receiver is shown at the top right corner of the screen as can be seen below. At the time of this writing, the latest wireless receiver firmware is v1.27. With text SWITCH highlighted press ENTER as shown below.
3. The text SWITCH will change to LEARNING ON as shown below.
4. Press wireless switch buttons 1, 2, 3, and 4 in order. In the drawing below the red arrows shows the order of pressing.
The wireless switch serial number will appear on the screen as shown below. In the screen below “0012c8df” is the serial number of the switch. “-1” of “0012c8df-1” and “-2” of “0012c8df-2” represents rocker 1 and rocker 2 of the wireless switch respectively. Each individual wireless switch will have a different serial number.
5. To end the process of mapping the wireless switch to the wireless receiver, highlight the LEARNING ON text and press ENTER to change it back to SWITCH. This stops the receiver from learning any other wireless switches.
The process described above may be repeated to map in more wireless switches into the wireless receiver memory. Address #56 also has a wireless switch map that can have wireless switches mapped in just like the address #55 as described above. So a maximum of 7 two rocker wireless switches can be mapped into a single wireless receiver.
If some of the screens shown above cannot be accessed, then the system may need a newer version clock.
The physical wireless switch buttons now has a one to one correspondence to the BUTTONS of the clock. For example, physical wireless switch button 1 corresponds to BUTTON 1 of the clock. The relationships between the wireless switch physical buttons, the wireless receiver map, and the SELECT BTN SWI screen of the Clock is shown below. At this point, the wireless switches behave much like any other type of switch we have.
If a mapping of a wireless switch needs to be deleted from the wireless receiver memory, highlight the mapping to be deleted, press DELETE, and select YES on the confirmation screen.
