How to change Z-Wave frequency

It is possible to change the frequency of a Z-Wave Plus 800 series USB antenna, including Atrim Stick, if the antenna is running version v7.17.2 of the Z-Wave SDK or earlier.

Using the Z-Wave JS plugin and Home Assistant, do the following:

  1. Sign in to Home Assistant using your setup’s appropriate URL; typically this is homeassistant:8123
  2. Enter Z-Wave JS UI (previously known as Zwave JS to MQTT)
  3. Select ‘Settings’ and expand the Z-Wave settings option

Select Z-Wave JS, Settings, and then expand 'Z-Wave'

  1. Under RF Region, select ‘RF Region’.
  2. Select the appropriate region. If your region is not listed, determine which Z-Wave frequency it uses and shares with listed regions. Select the appropriate region.

Remember, altering the Z-Wave frequency on your 800 series USB stick can be complex due to Silicon Labs' policies on Z-Wave technology and frequency alterations. Testing your Z-Wave USB stick with other Z-Wave devices extensively after changes is crucial. Be aware of potential issues such as reduced wireless range or the disabling of frequency adjustments in the Z-Wave JS UI.
