Troubleshooting


Having issues pairing your device?

  • Move your Sensor within 4 - 10 ft of your Home Assistant Z-Wave network.
  • Remove power from illumino Wall Switch for 1 minute, then power it up again.
  • Try factory resetting or excluding your illumino Wall Switch.

      2. Immediately release, and tap the button once again. 
      3. If successful, the LED will fade blue in/out to indicate that it is ready to be connected to another hub.
