This page lists how to properly setup Keypad with Popp Hub and forms a part of the larger Keypad user guide.
Keypad (POPE700045) is a security enabled Z-Wave Plus product. A security enabled Z-Wave controller must be used to fully utilize this product. Keypad allows secure control of your Z-Wave devices such as door locks, trigger actions in a gateway, and arm/disarm alarm systems based on the entry of certain key codes. The bell key on Keypad allows emulation of a doorbell by operating such as triggering light and doorbells.
The device can operate in two different modes. The mode is chosen automatically depending if Keypad is used by itself as the main Z-Wave controller or if it was paired into a Z-Wave network as a secondary controller:
- Stand Alone Mode (Primary Z-Wave Controller). Keypad acts as the primary network controller and can include other Z-Wave devices such as e.g. a strike lock control or a door bell. The management of user codes is done using Keypad.
- Network Mode (Secondary Z-Wave Controller). Keypad is included as additional device into an existing network. In Z-Wave terms it will then act as inclusion (secondary) controller. It will send commands to a central or primary controller. In this mode the device can still directly control door locks but it can also be used to trigger scenes in a primary controller, or be configured by the primary/central controller.
The device is protected by a tamper switch sending out an alarm message when the enclosure is opened if paired as a secondary controller.
2 Installation & Setup
The purpose of the network mode is to use Keypad as control device for the whole Smart Home. This means that after including Keypad into the network of the central controller this very controller will receive event notifications for all actions performed on Keypad:
- Entering a valid key code (Scene ID 20 is issued). Its possible to issue the key code number as scene ID by setting the configuration parameter #5 accordingly
- Hitting the bell button once: Scene ID 21
- Hitting the bell button twice within one second: Scene ID 22
- Entering a invalid key code : Scene ID 23
The central controller will see Keypad as a kind of remote control with various buttons (key codes and real buttons). Additionally the tamper switch status is reported to protect the device against tampering.
To Include Keypad in your existing Z-Wave network please follow these steps:
- Set you primary controller in “Inclusion mode”
- Turn Keypad in “Management Mode” by opening the Case
- hit button 4 and confirm with * (Star Key)
After the successful inclusion you should see the new Widget for Keypad in you “elements view”.

Now you can install Keypad-app from the App-store. After successful pair to Popp gateway, you should see the configuration-dialog of this module and will require you to select your Keypad-element to control/setup Keypad.

Next, you can define what happens if you make a wrong input or ring the bell. Here you can select from your existing scenes and also define a corresponding icon which will be displayed in the UI. You can then enter the desired user codes and also select a symbol to a corresponding scene. This scene is executed after the correct code has been entered. Once you have made all the desired settings, click on “Save” and press the “Ring” button on your keypad.
If a correct code is entered on Keypad and then confirmed with “#”, it will be displayed in the UI. You can also see the codes entered in the event history.
