Installing GoConex Wireless Switch

Switches transmit on, off, and dim commands to GoConex Controllers. Controllers and switches need to be paired together.

Controller Grouping

Controllers specific to a home, area or building, need to be grouped together to create a unique, secure network and create multi-controller switch pairings.

Creating a New Controller Grouping

  1. Press the button on a powered controller (The light will flash green)
  2. Press the button a second powered controller (The first controller will pulse red and green. The second controller will flash green.)
  3. Press the button on the first powered controller to complete the process (Both controllers will pulse green indicating the group was successful created.)

Adding a New Controller to an Existing Group

  1. Press the button on a powered controller that is already a part of the group (The light will flash green.)
  2. Press the button the powered controller being added to the group (The grouped controller will pulse red and green. The new controller will flash green.)
  3. Press the button on the grouped controller again to complete the process (Both controllers will pulse green indicating the new controller was successfully added to the group.)

Pair Switches and Controllers Together

Switches transmit on, off, and dim commands to GoConex controllers.

  1. Press the ‘Pair’ button on one controller. The LED on the controller will flash green.
  2. Squeeze and release both ends of the GoConex switch simultaneously. The controller LED will flash red and green.
  3. Press ‘Pair’ on the controller to confirm the pairing. The LED will flash green 3 times to indicate success.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 to pair additional switches.
  5. Repeat steps 1-3 to pair a switch to multiple controllers, there is no limit.
  6. To clear saved switch pairing information from a controller, press and hold the controller’s ‘Pair’ button for 5 seconds until the LED flashes red 3 times. Now the controller can be paired with other switches.

Set Maximum and Minimum Brightness for GDT15 and GPDT15 Dimming Controllers

Use the following instructions to eliminate flickering lights when using a GoConex dimming controller (orange).

  1. Set the dimmer’s max brightness level
    a. Press and hold the up/on button on the switch to increase the light’s brightness.
    b. If the light flickers, release the up/on button. Press and hold down/off on the switch to dim the light down to the point where no flickering occurs.
    c. 2-click/double-click the button on the GDT15 controller. This sets the highest brightness.
    d. The GDT15 controller’s LED indicator will flash green to confirm the setting is saved.
  2. Set the dimmer’s minimum brightness level
    a. Press and hold the down/off button on the switch to decrease the light’s brightness.
    b. If the light flickers, release the down/off button. Press and hold up/on on the switch to brighten the light up to the point where no flickering occurs.
    c. 2-click/double-click the button on the controller. This sets the lowest brightness.
    d. The GDT15 controller’s LED indicator will flash green to confirm the setting is saved.
  3. Reset the dimmer’s max/min brightness level to factory default
    a. 3-click/triple-click the button on the GDT15 controller.
    b. NOTE: This will not clear any pairings or groupings in the controller’s memory. It only resets the brightness max/min settings to factory defaults.

Install GoConex Switches

  1. Using GoConex wire-free switches:
    Pressing “Up” sends the “on” command to the Controller. “Down” sends the “off” command. Holding the switch sends a dim command.
  2. Mount your switch on a wall or other finished surface
    a. The GoConex Switches can be secured to any surface or kept portable.
    b. Use the included screws and anchors to attach the switch to the surface, or mount the switch using adhesive.
    c. Use a decorator-style wall plate to cover and finish the installation.

How to Reset the Controller’s Pairing and Group Configuration

  1. To clear the controller’s paired switch memory, press and hold the ‘Pair’ button for 5 seconds. The LED will flash red to indicate the switch pairings have been cleared.
  2. To clear a controller’s saved group memory, press and hold the ‘Pair’ button for 10 seconds. The LED will flash red to indicate the memory has been cleared.
  3. If using multiple controllers, group the controller before pairing it with other switches.
