Z-Wave

GetInTouch supports Z-Wave products. This enables you that your viewers may control your Z-Wave devices while you are streaming. To get this running all you need is a Z-Wave controller USB stick and power sockets which operate via Z-Wave.

This allows you to integrate some exciting devices like bubble machine or disco lights into your stream.

How to use Z-Wave

First of all you need a Z-Wave controller and some Z-Wave devices. To see which devices GetInTouch supports, click on the "Get it" button at the end of this text.

Insert the Z-Wave controller into your PC and install the driver from Z-Wave.me homepage if Windows don't find it automatically. If the driver runs proper, in the Device Manager the controller should be displayed as a COM-Port.
After that start the GetInTouch Application and proceed with the following steps:

GetInTouch open Z-Wave-ControlOpen Z-Wave Control
If you use Z-Wave at the first time with GetInTouch you have to right-click on the GetInTouch icon in the taskbar and click on the "Z-Wave" item.
GetInTouch - follow instructionsWait until you see this screen.
The status has to be displayed as "Ready" Otherwise your Z-Wave controller does not work correctly.
GetInTouch - follow instructions

Add new devices
Press on the "start inclusion" button to switch the controller into inclusion mode.
Than you have 30 seconds to bring the device you want to add into the inclusion mode, too.

If the timer ended, or you pressed on the "finish" button, the number of "supported devices" should be increased (it may take some time).

Repeat those steps until you have added all your devices.
Keep in mind that you can only add one device at each inclusion process.

If you have added all your devices, they should be displayed on your Twitch config page and you can setup the usage of them there.
