For the EM4300, the Extended Network ID is a 16 digit hexadecimal string, where the last 8 characters must be precisely 04015E10 and the first 8 characters are user-defined. Note that the first 8 characters must be unique from one ZigBee network to the other if using multiple MPMs configured as ZigBee Coordinators in the same deployment or building.

Note: The “Treat Extended Network ID as Hexadecimal” box must be checked.

Note: Ensure the Stack Profile used is ZigBee Pro and the selected Security Profile is Home Automation.
