This is my thread about the Heiman HS1CA-Z CO Sensor.
Manufacturers product page can be seen here.
User manual: HEIMAN HS1CA-Z manual Gen 5.pdf (167.7 KB)
I paired the device using the Vera mobile Android app, not something I would normally do, as I usually use the Vera UI7 web GUI, but either way is fine.
On my Vera Plus running Vera Firmware version 1.7.5186 (7.31) the device paired fine with no issues what so ever.
Here are the screen shots from the Vera mobile app, there is a specific device pairing wizard on the Vera Plus hub. Strangely there is not on the Ezlo Plus hub.
Here are the screen shots from the Vera UI7 web GUI:
Only one single device was added which is correct.
These are the default device settings:
device_type = urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:SmokeSensor:1
device_file = D_SmokeSensor1.xml
device_json = D_COSensor1NoTamper.json
category_num = 4
subcategory_num = 5
Device Variables screen shots:
The device I believe supports S2 Security but it doesn’t appear to have been paired in Encrypted mode:
I also paired this sensor as a test to the Ezlo Plus hub, however that didn’t go smoothly at all and was a terrible user experience, see here for that story.
I don’t know how to real world test a CO Sensor, but the device has a test button on the front of it that sounds the siren alarm.
Under normal operation the device flashes green every 30 seconds. I don’t believe you can turn that off.
There are no configurable parameter settings listed in the user manual for the device.
However you can use Z-Wave direct Association Groups for BASIC SET ON / OFF commands sent to other devices.
I have also had a Heiman Smoke Detector for quite a while now and that works well also. They are small and discrete looking in size, but loud when they sound the siren alarm.
I am not sure if you could have multiple devices like these and have them interlinked so if for example one smoke sensor sounds to then make all the others sound as well ? Perhaps by using Association Group 2 ? I have not tried this as yet.
