ZWave Binary Switch
The ZWave Binary Switch turns lights and appliances on and off. The Binary Switch comes in a number of different packages. These can be wall warts, outdoor switches, outlets, and small packages that fit within electrical boxes.
Installing a Binary Switch
The Binary Switch Device has an input terminal (1), for turning the switch on and off, and an output status terminal (1S), which shows the state of the switch. If the "1" terminal is on, the switch is told to turn on. If the "1" terminal is off, the switch is told to turn off.
Generally, the "1S" status output will track the state of the "1" terminal. If the switch malfunctions or is out of radio range, the "1S" terminal will not track the "1" terminal. The "1S" terminal is useful when one needs to know the actual state of the switch.
