Fully-featured Z-Wave Remote Control Shrunk to a Key

The Aeotec Key Fob is a fully functional Z-Wave remote controller, which can include, exclude and control the other Z-Wave certified devices. It also can be acted as a secondary controller in a network.

It has a four button design and you can use each button to control Z-Wave devices in your home and build a Z-Wave network for them. Products that are Z-Wave certified can be used and communicate with other Z-Wave certified devices.

The Aeotec KeyFob features all the functionality of larger Z-Wave remote controls but packed into a small pocket-sized device that you can take anywhere. The Keyfob can be set up as the primary controller of a Z-Wave network or as an additional (secondary) Z-Wave controller - it's perfect for additional, portable control in an existing Z-Wave network.

The KeyFob may only have four buttons but it can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Direct control of multiple devices with a single button
  • Direct activation of up to eight scenes
  • Device configuration - Include devices, Exclude devices, set associations, scenes etc.

Z-Wave Plus

The  Z-Wave Aeotec Key Fob Remote is Z-Wave Plus Certified. Z-Wave Plus (5th Generation Z-Wave) offers a lot of new features including increased range, extended battery life and Over The Air upgrading (OTA). Take a look at our "What is Z-Wave Plus" guide for more information

Good but niggles on two fronts
Have HomeSeer [HS] - not tied to any single manufacturer and had tried other keys fobs - problematic, but HS have video for this. Not quite as simple as described but after adding/excluding/resetting/adding and general fiddling it now works. Setting to Scene mode is critical, that is Byte 250 = 1, not shown/mentioned anywhere! Actual fob instructions are - ahem - terse. That's the good news. The bad news is that JUST after I ordered two of these Vesternet halved the price - grrr, annoying. Worse was that one of the two was absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to open so I had to send it back to be replaced (suppose I could have asked for a refund and re-ordered but more honorable than that). Trouble is the replacement (works fine - same fiddling though) is DIFFERENT. It has a small oval press button for opening the battery, which the first does not - so obviously the impossible battery WAS a known, ongoing problem. Would have liked them to be the same, sigh... Oh, well works now and can't say Vesternet quibbled at all, but the return did take a couple of weeks to process, Xmas didn't help! Recommend - yes - this is a part of my HA/security (was X-10 for a while but this is safer). Oh, I'm NEVER upgrading to priority shipping - courier won't leave them (I have CCTV EVERYWHERE) and so it took two days LONGER than just a normal delivery!

Can act as controller, takes a little more work as a remote
This is easier to set up as a controller (other z-wave devices controlled directly from this fob, this does not mean it's dead easy - but doable - if you know something about z-wave) I wanted this to be 8 input buttons for a separated z-wave hub (home assistant) this was achieved using some minimote yam code found on Internet. Works very well, though trialing it under openHAB was slightly easier but implies the stay awake time is longer (so maybe batteries won't last as long ???

Small buttons get stuck
Generally a good little device but the buttons are very small and are slightly recessed making them hard to press even if you have small fingers. The buttons sometime get caught and stick in the down position, if you don't notice this at the time it seems to drain the battery.

It works fine with Vera Edge UI7
Oh joy, a manual that is understandable and set up without a Ph.D in computer sciences! I have 2 of these....the first needed to be reset a couple of times before it all worked....but that was probably me not being sure about what I was doing. The second fob was set up fine first hassle! What's more, the 4 buttons do indeed have 2 functions per button (short press or press and hold)...both work 8 scenes controllable. Looks wise, it's nothing special...but none of these things are. There's a sliding cover to protect the buttons from accidental presses...although that's unlikely as (criticism) the buttons are small and have to be pressed firmly to operate. All a little awkward with large fingers. The battery cover is very tight so a bit of a pain to get off...but then again, once it's on it on! The central shiny strip in the photos is actually chrome metal...which gives some heft and is quite heavy...weighing in at 31 grammes ie about a third of a bar of chocolate. Size is approx 55mm long, 30mm wide and 13mm thick. I could have knocked a star off because of the feel and pressure of the buttons but haven't because that would give the wrong impression of a device that (miraculously) actually worked first time and does what it should!

Will this work with homeseer?
GD1210 3 Aug 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Bought it and worked with Homeseer. But I don't use it anymore. Battery dies after 2 days with minimal use which is ridiculous
Does this work with Vera Plus?
Guest Visitor 18 Mar 2016
BEST ANSWER: This works with VERA Edge, which also runs UI7 firmware. So there is no reason for it to not work in VERA Plus.
