Nortek Stick Driver Installation

Instructions on setting up the Nortek HUSBZ Z-Wave/ZigBee stick on the HomeTroller Plus.


Our Zigbee plugin requires the use of a Nortek HUSBZB-1 Z-Wave & Zigbee combo interface. However, the drivers for this product are not automatically installed by Windows. Follow the steps below to install the drivers onto your HS4-powered Windows 10 system. These instructions also work with the HomeTroller PRO.

Windows 10

  1. Download the Silicon Labs CP210x driver for Window 10
  2. Extract the zip file to a folder on your desktop. 
  3. Open Windows Device Manager, you can press the Windows key and type Device Manager to locate it.
  4. Expand the Other Devices section, then locate the HubZ Zigbee Com Port. Make a note of which COM port this device is using as we will need it later.
  5. Right click on the device, then select Update Driver
  6. Click Browse my computer for driver software, then Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer
  7. Leave Show All Devices checked, then click Next and Have Disk
  8. Click Browse... Navigate to the folder you extracted the files to in step 2. 
  9. Select the file silabser.inf, click Open, then click OK.
  10. Click Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge and then Next
  11. If you get a warning that Windows cannot confirm the device ID, click Yes to continue. 

Your Zigbee interface should now appear in the Ports (COM & LPT) section of the Device Manager with a different name. You are all set to setup the Zigbee plugin now!
