In order to add a Z-Wave controllable device to your G300 network, you go through a one-time process that lets your G300 "recognize" the device so it can be part of the network. This process is called "including," and also "pairing" -- both always mean the same thing.
All that including really does is let one device tell the other about itself. The process takes just a couple of seconds and is usually enacted by simply putting your G300 gateway into "include" mode and pushing a button on the device you want to include. In those seconds, your G300 will "see" the new device, capture its vital information and be able to now control that from anywhere.
Including -- or pairing -- is usually done by bringing the device to be included within 3 feet of your G300. You do the following:
1) You put your G300 in include mode by pressing the Z-Wave button once, which puts it into a "learn" mode. The Z-Wave light should be blinking slowly.
2) You activate the including process on the device you want to include -- cameras, light switches, sensors, etc. -- by pushing a button on the device. The specific instructions for any device's inclusion mode varies by manufacturer; follow the instructions that came with the device you want to include.
3) Your G300 sees the new device and recognizes it. Now it's included in your network.
Remember: Different manufacturers of Z-Wave products often use different button sequences to include their devices into a network. Some may instruct you to push a button once, sometimes twice in succession, sometimes hold the button down until a light goes on or changes. These will all be spelled out for you in the instruction manual of the Z-Wave device you want to include in your G300 network.
Now that we know a bit about including, let's describe how you'll include new devices to your G300.
