To enable a simple and easy installation, it is recommended to buy the Tricklestar USB stick (now called Gateway) and the Tricklestar Remote (now called Inclusion Controller). On this hardware these instructions for installing and setting up the system in IP-Symcon are based. Perform the following steps, to be able to address your devices via IP Symcon.

Configuration of Gateway and Inclusion Controller

  • Install the drivers for the Gateway.
  • Create a new Z-Wave Configurator (Manage configurators -> New -> Z-Wave Configurator -> Confirm).

The list shows all on the gateway learned devices and their connections in IP-Symcon. Colour coding can be seen here.

  • Click the gear at the bottom of the Configurator, to get to the configuration of the gateway.

If a red error message is displayed in the lower area, just click on it and open in the I/O instance the serial port and select the correct one. Confirm the dialog with OK. The configuration page should close and the red error message should disappear on the gateway configuration.

  • Now reset the gateway to set it up as the primary controller and activate the SIS mode.

This operation deletes all the links that were already set up on the gateway.

  • After the operation the configuration should look as follows:


  • Close this configuration by clicking OK.
  • Back in the configurator you need to teach the inclusion controller.

The Inclusion controller teaches all new devices. It sends the device information automatically to the USB gateway, so that IP-Symcon can see and operate these devices. IP-Symcon can also be operated without SIS/SUC. This has the disadvantage that new devices must be programmed directly on the gateway because the teach-in is only possible on low-power mode and thus has a short range. The method with the inclusion controller is capable of routing and makes an ideal setting possible, including the calculation of the correct routing tables. In the mode without SIS/SUC after the successful placement of the device a optimization of the routing tables must be made in order to ensure a stable network.

  • Press in the Configurator on "Add Device" and turn the inclusion controller in the learning mode by using the following combination:
    • Press two seconds the Up Button - until the green LED lights. Then press the four times Up Button - to get in the right mode.

Check whether the Tricklestar remote is in configuration mode (see Tricklestar instructions).

  • After the learning process the semi-skilled dialogue should disappear and the new Inclusion Controller should appear as Generic Controller in the list.

Teaching the devices

  • After the gateway and the inclusion controllers are ready, you can acquire each device in the network. Place the devices at their final location. This is particularly important in order to calculate the correct routing tables in the training procedure.

If you want to move the location of a device, you must remove it on the network, and afterwards resume again in the network!

  • To put the Inclusion controller in adding mode, you must use the following combination:
    • Press two seconds the Up Button - until the green LED lights. Then press the four times Up Button - to get in the right mode.
  • The LED should be blinking. Now press the teach combination on your terminal equipment. The LED on the inclusion controller should light for two seconds, then go off.
  • Back in the Configurator in IP-Symcon your device should now be visible in the list.
  • Select it and press the buttons Create and then Configuration.
  • In the device configuration you have the opportunity to test the functionality of your devices.
  • Your device is now set up and can be operated directly in WebFront. With the PHP functions you can program your own actions.
