1 INTRODUCTION

QK-W015 series remote controller is a versatile device which can be attached to many of electronic devices in homes, offices, plants, or wherever you need. Operators can control any remote equipments, heater, lights, machines, or power sockets from anywhere in the world through internet. QK-W015 support three relay outs and 433MHz RF transmitter. RF power sockets within 50 meters of QK-W015 can be controlled by mobile operators.

50 meters of QK-W015 can be controlled by mobile operators. Figure 1 System diagram (Station mode)

2 SETUP

2.1 Power up

QK-W015 remote controller need to be powered by 12VDC voltage. Connect a 12 volt DC power supply to the power socket, switch on the power supply. The blue LED should light up and then flashing slowly. After about 10 seconds, the Red LED will light up indication system finishes initialization.

2.2 Access QK-W015

After QK-W015 finish initialization, operator should be able to scan SSID on the mobile terminals and find a SSID called ‘WiFi168’. Access WLAN of the mobile terminal and connect with the ‘WiFi168’. The default password is ‘88888888’. Blue LED will keep light up once the ‘WiFi168’ is connected by the operators mobile terminal. If ‘WiFi168’ cannot

3 AD-HOC MODE

The IEEE 802.11 has two basic modes of operation: Ad-hoc mode and infrastructure mode(also called station mode). In ad hoc mode, mobile terminals transmit directly peer-to- peer. While In infrastructure mode, mobile terminals communicate through an access point(AP) that serves as a bridge to other networks (such as Internet or LAN). QK-W015 WiFi controller can support in both Ad-hoc and Station mode.

Setting QK-W015 works in Ad-hoc mode is quite straightforward. Once the mobile terminal connected to WiFi168 network, QK-W015 then works in Ad-hoc automatically.

3.1 Connect With Mobile phones

Once the ‘WiFi168’ is connected, operators can control these electronics devices in ‘Main control panel’ which have connected on relays and RF main sockets. The indicator icons (the light bulb next to ‘Off’ button) can demonstrator each relay. Due to one way communication between QK-W015 and 433MHz RF main sockets, the status of the RF main sockets cannot be check and indicated.

4 STATION (INFRASTRUCTURE) MODE

To control QK-W015 remotely, it should be set working in station mode, operator need perform the following procedure to finish the setting.

1,Press and hold the ‘Reset’ button, then power up QK-W015. The blue LED will light up for few seconds, then the red LED turns on. Keep the red LED turns on for 3 seconds, release Reset button.

2, Wait for 60 seconds, red LED turns off and then turns on again. During this period, blue LED blinking every second interval.

3, Operator can now use the mobile terminal search and connect ‘WiFi168’.

4, Once this Ad-hoc connection has been setup, operator can start the following setting through APP.

SSID name ---- Input the SSID name(or called AP name) which QK-W015 will access to.

Password --- Input the password for accessing AP. Quark-elec notices for some old type Access Point, they maybe have connection problem with QK-W015 if the AP security type set as ‘WEP’. So, if operator has the access problem, please change the security type to ‘WPA’ or ‘WPA2’, avoiding ‘WEP’ on the wireless router.

IP address --- Dynamic IP address will be assigned by QK-W015 if operator dont set a static IP address on APP.

5, Re-power up QK-W015 to apply the remote control function.

4.1 Station mode setting through APP

Operator should make sure QK-W015 has connected with the mobile terminal in ad-hoc mode before the following setting. Run the APP, click ‘Station mode setting’, input SSID of the AP and then ‘Save’. The red LED will turn off. Keep waiting until the response message received from QK-W015. Then the same way applies for setting the password. It is recommended that operator dont set static IP address to QK-W015 if static IP address has to be used.

’ t set static IP address to QK-W015 if static IP address has to be used.
’ t set static IP address to QK-W015 if static IP address has to be used.

Once the above setting finished, operator can click ‘Switch to station mode’ to set QK- W015 working in station mode.

After click ‘Switch to station mode’, the red LED light will turn off indicating system is busy.

Waiting about 90 seconds, the blue LED will turns off. Another 30 seconds, the red LED light turn on firstly and then the blue LED. If the SSID or password is not correct, then the blue LED will keep blink. In this case, operator should reset the module and repeat the setting procedure again.

Once QK-W015 has successfully connected with the AP in station mode, operator should re-power up QK-W015 to get the full function applied (dont press the reset button during the re-power process).

Reset

Operator can always reset QK-W015 if the setting is incorrect or would like to switch the working mode. Following below steps to reset QK-W015 to the factory settings:

1, Power off QK-W015.

2, Press and hold the ‘Reset’ button, then power up QK-W015. Blue LED will light up for few seconds, then the red LED turns on. Keep the red LED turns on for 3 seconds, release Reset button.

3, Wait for 60 seconds, the red LED turns off and then turns on again. During this period, the blue LED is blinking every second.

4, Operator can now available to connect to ‘WiFi168’.

5 PARING WITH RF POWER SOCKETS

QK-W015 has a build-in 433Mhz RF transmitter module. It can pair with up to four RF power sockets. So the operators are able to turn ON/OFF the electrical devices by switching the power sockets.

The power sockets have been paired and ready to use if they come with QK-W015. However the operator can always pair or release the pairing by following steps:

Insert the RF power socket into a powered mains wall socket.

The LED light on the socket should flash at 1 second intervals indicating it’s ready to pair with the QK-W015. If the lights doesn’t flash, press and hold the ON/OFF button for 5 seconds to clear the memory indicated by the quickly flashing LED.

Open WiFi Remote control panel in App, press the corresponding RF switch ‘ON’ button. The paring command will be sending out through RF signals.

Once the power socket received the paring command, The LED light on the socket will flash briefly more quickly and then flash at 1 second intervals. This RF main socket should have been successfully paired now.

Repeat above process for each different RF main sockets.

Simply plug-in the appliance which you want to operate remotely into the socket, press the corresponding ON button on App that is paired to the socket. The appliance will turn on.

6 APP(ANDROID VERSION)

The latest version of Android APP can be downloading with the following link:

Once the mobile phone has connected with QK-W015, the operator can control these electronics devices which connected on relays and RF main sockets. And the operator can check the relays status by click ‘Check relays status’.

7.2 RF main sockets

Customer can select USA, European or UK type RF main sockets. Quark-elec standard RF main sockets support 2000 Watts power rating.

Although QK-W015 have running specific algorithm to increase the RF transmission reliability, Quark-elec cannot guarantee 100% of proper action rate of RF main sockets. QK-W015 RF signal could be affect by other nearby RF devices such as bell ring, car key, cordless phone, mobile phone, RF alarm system. The following is a real test result taken in a house environment in the UK.
