  • Laptop or Tablet PC
  • Mobile Router (such as MiFi, to make sure you can reach the Internet and continue setup, even if the home Internet is not set up)
  • Double-sided Tape
  • Screwdrivers (including a small Phillips-head)
  • Flashlight
  • Power Strip with Surge Protector
  • Labels and Marker (for labeling sensors, if sensors are not pre-labled)
  • Extra Batteries
  • Wireless Router (in case they have Internet and a computer already plugged in, and they need a wireless router to allow the system to be added to the network)
  • Ethernet Cable (in case they already have a router, and you need to plug in to it)
  • Extra Sensors
  • Extra Antenna (Z-Stick, etc.)
  • Lamp Module (for Z-Wave installations)


Be sure to take notes during the installation, e.g. where each sensor is, so you can troubleshoot remotely.
