When removing a Decora Smart Z-Wave device from a Z-Wave network, it is best practice to use the Exclusion Process.
In situations where a device needs to be returned to factory default settings (this will also exclude the device from the Z-Wave network that it is currently included onto), follow the following steps.
- Hold the top of the paddle or button for a total of 14 seconds.
- After the first 7 seconds, the Locator LED will turn amber.
- After 14 seconds, the Locator LED will quickly flash alternating red/amber.
- Release the the top of the paddle or button and the device will reset.
A reset can also be used when a controller is inoperable or missing.
