911Switch HUB Programming Guide
Once the switch has been properly installed and the FOB has been programmed to activate the 911Switch, we are ready to install the
911Switch Hub. The 911Switch Hub is sold separately.
For the 911Switch Hub to function as a remotely activated device, we have to set up the communication between the Hub and the 911Switch. The 911Switch can only respond to commands… so that requires us to program the Hub similar to programming the FOB.
- First: “create” the Hub unique address:
- PRESS and HOLD button 2 before connecting 5V power (USB port or AC adapter).
- Connect the Hub to a power source
- The red LED will be on for 2 seconds. You must release button 2 while red LED is on.
- The green LED below it will now be blinking fast.
- PRESS and HOLD button 1, The green LED turns off and the red LED will now be on solid while you’re holding
button 1 – this is when its “creating” its unique address
- Release button 1, and the red LED blinks fast
- Press and release button 1 again (within 15 seconds). This will “save” the new address
- Unit returns to normal mode, only green LED on solid, with a blip every ~10 seconds. This is a “heartbeat” indication that
software is active and waiting for triggers.
- Second: place the hub in test mode:
- From normal mode (green solid), press and hold button 1 for ~ 5sec.
- The green LED turns off, and the red above it blinks a couple times and pause, then repeat.
- Third: let’s make the 911switch “learn” the address you just created in the HUB
- On the 911Switch, Slide the bottom power disconnect switch to the right (disconnects power from the switch).
*Slider to the left is the normal operation setting = power on*.
- Press top of the rocker (as if you were normally turning on the light switch) and HOLD
- Slide the slider to left (power on)
- Release the top of the rocker
- The RED LED in the switch is illuminated solid for ~2 seconds
- The RED LED will flash 4X, then remain on solid – this is “remote program mode”
- Momentarily press the top of the rocker again and the LED rapidly flashes for ~17 seconds.
- With the 911switch in learn mode, and the hub in test mode, just wait for the switch learn cycle to complete.
- When the learn mode timer expires, (rapid flashing on the switch stops) you will get an immediate acknowledgement if
successful: the LED blinks 4X to say the new remote device is properly programmed.
- Congratulations! Now, this HUB can activate or deactivate the ALERT mode of this switch.
To cancel the HUB test mode, press and hold button 1 again for a few seconds. The red flashing will stop, and the green LED blinks a couple times while it’s sending out the deactivate alert command. Then the unit is back in its normal state. To cancel the HUB test mode, press and
hold button 1 again for a few seconds. The red flashing will stop, and the green LED blinks a couple times while it’s sending out the deactivate alert command. Then the unit is back in its normal state.
Other Quick Notes:
- The 911 Switch HUB can only have 1 address out of 16 million possible combinations stored in its memory, just like the FOB.
It’s retained without power.
- There is no maximum number of switches you can control with any one HUB
- WIFI download firmware mode (through USB connection)
- RESET WIFI module
- Hub can be activated (to send out alert command) 4 ways:
- (1) TEST mode
- (2) WIFI interface (phone/internet
- (3) External voltage 24V max on “external interface” connector (internal jumpers removed) or
- (4) External “dry” contacts on the “external interface” connector (internal jumpers installed)
- Hub can communicate with a PC through USB connection as a UART for WIFI module status/upgrades, etc.
- Front Status LED’s show normal, alert modes, and which interface is driving the alert (WIFI or external interface)
- 5VDC operation only (standard USB port or power adapter)
- Remote control frequency 433MHz, proprietary encoding/security
- Tx power 0 dBm QPSK, FCC ID xxxxxx
- WIFI 802.11 b/g/n compatible
- Operating temperature range -20 to 85degrees C
- Power “consumption” @ idle : < 20mA,duringWIFI communication 77mA @ 5V, and 83.7mA during remote activation broadcasts.
- Addresses stored without power for ~20 years
