Operational Procedures:

  1. Inclusion-Mode (as primary controller only)

    – press button “include” – blue LED blinks slowly

    – press button on device – blue and red LED will blink quickly – blue LED will stay solid for 2 seconds to indicate success / red LED will stay solid for 2 seconds to indicate failure

    – Blue LED continue to blink slowly and can repeat for all other devices

  2. Removal mode (as primary controller only)

    – press button “remove” – red LED will blink slowly

    – press button on the device – blue LED will stay solid for 2 seconds to indicate success or red LED stays solid for 2 seconds to indicate failure

    – red LED continue to blink and can continue to remove other devices

  3. Creating scenes ( and removing Z wave devices from scenes)

    – press and hold the scene button – blue LED will blink fast

    – while still holding the button, press on the button of the devices – blue LED will stay solid

    then adjust the device to the level you want

    – release the scene button to complete adding the device

    – if repeat for the same device, it will be removed from the scene

  4. All – On ( turn on ALL Z wave devices in the network)

    – press and hold the top left and top right scene buttons together

  5. All – Off ( turn off all Z-wave devices in the network)

    – press and hold the bottom left and bottom right scene button together

  6. Dim Up/down – brighten / dim the zwave devices associated to a scene

    – press and hold the button – blue led will blink slowly

    – release when the desired level is reached

  7. Association

    – press the button “ associate” – blue LED blinks slowly

    – press the button on the destination device ( slave) – blue LED blinks quickly

    – press button on the source device ( routing slave – sensor, controller) – blue LED stays solid for 2 seconds to indicate success; red to indicate failure

Comments:

Minimote operations are rather confusing at the start because there are quite a few different modes. The indications have to be observed carefully too. Nevertheless, it works well as a secondary controller complementing Z-Stick for the purpose of associating and disassociating the z-wave devices as well as creating scenes. Of course, it works well as a stand alone primary controller too.
