 +
 +The Aeotec Minimote is a [[z-wave]] remote.
 +
 +
 +====== Use with Home Assistant ======
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Including in the Z-Wave Network =====
 +
 +
 +This part is tricky, you might have to retry this a couple of times.
 +
 +  *  Click the "Add Node Secure" button in Home Assistant.
 +  *  Press the Minimote button labeled Learn or Join – The blue LED will blink slowly.
 +  *  The blue and red LEDs will blink quickly to indicate detection of the other Z-Wave controller
 +  *  The blue LED will stay solid for 2 seconds to indicate success; the red LED will stay solid for 2 seconds to indicate failure.
 +
 +Check Home Assistant or the OZW logs to see if the inclusion was successful.
 +
 +
 +===== Scene Mode =====
 +
 +
 +Once included into your network, you must set configuration parameter 250 (Mode) to "Scene" and not "Group" in order for button presses to generate <code>zwave.scene_activated</code> events in Home Assistant. In order to ensure the remote is awake when setting the configuration parameter, hold the Learn button down.
 +
 +Once set up, the following scenes will be activated by button presses:
 +
 +^ Button^ Quick Press^ Long Press |
 +| 1| 1| 2 |
 +| 2| 3| 4 |
 +| 3| 5| 6 |
 +| 4| 7| 8 |
 +
 +
 +If you have a remote that uses squares instead of numbers, the buttons are numbered like so:
 +
 +<code>           +----------+
 +  LEDs --> | oo       |
 +                    |
 +            1    2  |
 +                    |
 +            3    4  |
 +           | ________ |
 +           |/        \|
 +           | Inc  Rem |
 +                    |
 +           | Ass  Lrn |
 +                    |
 +           |/\/\/\/\/\|
 +                    |
 +
 + Inc - Include        Rem - Remove
 + Ass - Associate      Lrn - Learn
 +</code>
 +
