homekit FIBARO and Apple HomeKit
T.Konopka posted a topic in AnnouncementsDear users, We noticed that there is a confusion on the forum, therefore we would like to inform you that FIBARO produces devices working with Apple HomeKit platform and Z-Wave protocol. These are two separate product lines. FIBARO follows the newest trends, we are innovative and flexible therefore we decided to introduce devices working with Apple HomeKit platform - dedicated for intelligent home solutions. FIBARO introduces the first three devices working with HomeKit platform: Motion Sensor, Flood Sensor, Door/Window Sensor. We assure you that we continue to develop and expand our Z-Wave system. Moreover, be informed that there are two mobile apps: Fibaro App and Fibaro for HomeKit Connected Devices, they are dedicated for two separate lines of products. We plan to introduce at least a few new products working with Apple HomeKit platform and Z-Wave system in the next year.
Association: Fibaro motion sensor ZW5 and Fibaro Switch 2
jakub.jezek posted a question in Motion SensorI have encountered very interesting behaviour in association between motion sensor (FGMS-001-ZW5 v3.2) and Fibaro switch 2 (FGS-2x3). I set multichannel association only in Group 2 in motion sensor. I also set parameter 12 to send ON only (value 1). In Switch 2 settings i set there Auto off only. 1st case scenario: Now, when i "breach" motion sensor for first time it turn Switch On as desired. I'm trying now to encrease time to have Switch 2 turned ON by "breaching" motion sensor. If i "breach" motion sensor second time, third time, ...., it turn off and turn on Switch 2. So relay will flash always, when i breach it. 2nd case scenario when i "breach" motion sensor for first time it turn Switch On as desired. I'm trying now to encrease time to have Switch 2 turned ON by "breaching" motion sensor. If i "breach" motion sensor second time, third time, ...., it turn Switch 2 to oposite state. So relay turn on or off, when i breach it. I laso made a video of that behaviours. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9qu634urtl09ry7/VID_20161213_093908.mp4?dl=0 Does anyone has same experience with this case? @T.Konopka Did Fibaro engeneers encountered this issue in a past?
Fibario - New App for lighting
Matt.hiscock posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHello Everyone. I have what I consider a pretty typical setup. A nest and FIbaro lights and smokes. Pretty basic 10 circuits, nothing special happening here. While I think the Fibaro app is pretty decent, I wanted something I little more focused and polished for me. So, I have built a Android and IOS app which is modelled on the look and feel of the Savant app: https://www.savant.com/product/savant-app The app is fully working, just need a visual improvement - but it looks decent already. Its a side project - so dev will happen when i have time. I never planned on realising this in the wild, but a few people who have seen it love it - so thinking about submitting to relevant stores. Its boring features are: - Picks up weather and such like - Pick up NEST information (via Fibaro home centre or home centre lite) - Get all relevant devices from the system - Allows you to input your IP / user / pass (and saves) to allow connectivity to the home centre / lite (can use dyndns for those not on static IPs at home) - Runs via HTTP - so will work inside and outside the home. (use local IP on the internal only devices) The more interesting features are: - Allows you to (So much easier than Fibaro) create scenes on the app - in a lovely interface. - Will sync all settings of the scenes with either the Fibaro box, or Dropbox (or similar) - Might make it control the Nest also and other device types which fit within the focus of the app & alerts - Keeps the device alive if desired (prevent screen off) What im looking to do: - Get some flush wall mounts of ipad Minis / Andriod tabs made up (using 3D printers to keep costs low) - Have these as wall mounted control centres - keep the cost very low. - Allow people to re-use these old devices - rather than capture dust in a draw. Is there much appetite for such stuff in this community? If so ill look to finish it up and develop. Ill probably put it up as a paid app, mainly to cover costs and support / continious development. I will stress this is not a replacement for the Fibaro app - its just more focused and beautiful.
Triggering a IP switch
robinvandienst posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHello Everyone, I got a 8 channel IP relay, that i would like to control with the HC2. I grabbed the network data that's being send out when i use the buttons in the original control webpage of the relay. It looks like this: curl 'http://10.0.1.93/relay_en.cgi' \ -XPOST \ -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \ -H 'Referer: http://10.0.1.93/relay_en.cgi' \ -H 'Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1' \ -H 'Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8' \ -H 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_12) AppleWebKit/602.1.50 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/10.0 Safari/602.1.50' \ -H 'Origin: http://10.0.1.93' \ --data 'saida1on=on' How could i get the HC2 to trigger this via LUA? Can it be done? I also found this.. Maybe someone can help me find out.. This triggers Relay 1 for an Pulse of 1 second, "saida1on=on" sets the relay on and "saida1off=off" sets relay 1 to off. curl --user admin:password --data "saida1pluse=pluse" http://10.0.1.93/relay_en.cgi If i can explain anything more, please ask.. I'm struggling with this for a few days now, and can't get this to work.
Add Logitech Harmony Activity in HC2 Scene
Christer E posted a question in Home Center 2Today i updated to v. 4.02 for my Fibaro HC2. The update log recommended a reinstallation of the Logitech Harmony Plugin. When i installed the Plugin again via the very smart code-authentication it says on the plugin info: As I understand from the text above it should be possible to make a Scene in HC2 and include a Logitech Harmony Activity? As an example, I have a scene in HC2 called "Leaving Home", and when I press it the lights shuts down and in that scene I also want to shut down my Tv using the Harmony Acitivity. But when i trying to add a scene i can't choose the Activity from my Logitech even tough the activity (Acitivity Digital-Tv in the image attached) is visible in the HC2 panel in the web interface. Does anybody know how to add an Logitech Harmony Acitivity in a HC2 Scene? Thanks in advance! C.
Creating an Association
nickboy posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceI am trying to create an ASSOCIATION between Fibaro Motion Sensor and Fibaro Wall Plug. Motion Sensor sees motion -> Wall plug switches on. Both sensors work fine on their own. I’ve read the PDF manual from Fibaro web (http://materialy.fibaro.com/technical%20presentations/HC2_A4_MotionSens_RelaySwitch_Association.pdf) but this does not help. The latest UI works a bit differently. I have been able to get this to work using SCENES but it was way too slow. It took around 8 seconds from motion to turn on the lights. Instead, pressing light -button from Fibaro UI works instantly. No idea why there is such a massive processing delay?? Any and all help will be appreciated. I am a total newbie and need some assistance to get everything working. I am selecting Motion Sensor -> Advanced -> Associations GROUP 1 Single channel associations To be set: 20 Current (on device): 20 Multi channel associations To be set: Current (on device): I have Fibaro Wall Plug selected. Save -> Nothing happens. Notification screen remains empty. Light switch does not work. Are there some additional settings that need to be adjusted in Motion Sensor Advance mode??
Fibaro Wall Plug High Copy (Made in China)
jp2605 posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi Fibar Team and member! Just wanted to share with you a high copy of Fibaro Wall Plug - see below snapshot. Would be nice if Fibaro could patent their design so that to protect from copies/fake products and to make fibaro modules unic. Be careful, only buy genuine products! On another hand, I just cant wait to see a UK version of the wall plug.. What about you? Cheers!
Problems adding FGSD-002 to HC2
eGuard posted a topic in FIBARO ProductsHello all, I have a HC2 with several modules, i recently purchased 5 pcs FGSD-002 smoke sensors to include in the setup. Last week i have added 1 sensor in the Garage, without any problems, everything working fine. Now i wanted to add the ones for the kitchen and for the living room. I followed the procedure as described in the manual. During the adding device proces, the devices are added. But when I go to unassigned devices, it shows the smoke sensor is a motion sensor. I grabbed the second smoke sensor, followed the procedure again, but with same result. Both end up as motion sensor and not as smoke sensor. In addition to that, it shows that the battery level is low. I have tried: - rebooting the HC2, both through reboot button in the software, as well as a hard reboot by unplugging the power. - I have resetted the smoke sensors - I have tried to keep pressing the b button while the device is added - I have changed the device in the software to smoke sensor, but temperature readings remain 0 and the battery level states low. When added, the devices are recognised as Fibaro device (manufacturer), but the part number remains empty. The sensors are both brand new, I took them straight from the sealed box to the include process. Setup: 1 x HC2 3 x zwave.me dimmer 3 x zwave.me wall switch 1 x fibaro smoke sensor 3 x zwave.me shutter switch 5 x fibaro v2 roller shutter (4 x fibaro smoke sensor) The HC2 is connected to a router, the router is not connected to internet. Does anyone have an idea what i can do to include these smoke sensors properly?
Unreliable motion sensors - configurable?
Adde80 posted a question in Home Center 2Another Fibaro rookie here, so guessing my questions likely fall into the noob category. Anyway I´ve just finished building a house and went "all in" with Fibaro. A whole bunch of dimmers, switch relays, wall plugs, smoke and motion sensors tied together with HC2. LUA is on the todo list to learn since I have realized it will be needed to create the kind of scenes I am thinking of.. But to the first question.. I have been making some scenes which are triggered by the motion sensors. However they are far from reliable, and my guess is that one of the reasons is that the motion which the sensor detects (ALWAYS gives visual feedback) is not always shown in the controller. So far I have only included two, and looking in the HC2 GUI now it looks like the pictures attached. On motion detector 1 (RD1) the icon looks as if it is active, i.e is detecting movement. However the timer is not reset. In the pic it shows that it saw motion 18 minutes ago eventhough I was there waving just before starting this thread. On the second one (RD2), well it shows over 3 hours since last motion detected. Was waving at that one too just now and got it to glow.. Am I missing something..? All the parameters are default.. One thing noticed is if I go in the detection field of the sensor, and it starts glowing, I do get some reaction in HC2.. The timer changes to first "Transmission OK" in green text followed by "Transmission failed" in red.. Then the timer gets back.. Still not reset. A second thing I can´t figure out where to look for more info.. I get these errors every now and then: ID 76: System hardware failure. Read the manual. ID 110: System hardware failure. Read the manual. Read the manual.. Well I have browsed through it, but the error is not that informative so not sure what to look for. The ID number, is that the error ID, or the device ID? If it is the latter, is there any good way to find it without clicking each and every device (which I have renamed to fit its use/kind).
What Satel products work?
MWDK posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi guys. What Satel products work with HC2? Is there an official guide somewhere? I have searched and found nothing i can use. And - how does it work in everyday life? Can you turn on/off the alarm from inside Fibaro? Im looking to buy a new alarm system and i want it integrated with Fibaro. Thanks!
Other Z-wave devices parameters problem with Fibaro HC2
Muhammad Nauman posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi All, I have Fibaro HC2 controller. All fibaro devices are working well with this controller but i am facing problem with other z-wave supported device in HC2. 1. I add a device (Aeotech siren Gen 5) in HC2, Device added successfully and received all it's parameters but When i go to the Advance tab of it, parameters are in undefined mode. i can't able to set it's parameters to control device features. (Image is attached) 2. I add a device (Vitrum Curtain control Wireless Switch) in HC2, Device added successfully but i couldn't found this device parameters nor it's template in HC2 browser interface. There is a notification that this device has no template please download and send query to Fibaro Support center. I tried but received a mail daemon error in email response. (Image is attached). Please help me if you have faced this problem as i have to complete my task of home automation. Thanks in advance.
Hi, I'm confused by the Fibaro Options: There's a Relais (also called Relay Switch) FGS-221) and a Switch (FIBEFGS-213). What's the difference? The only thing I figured out is that the more expensive Switch actually does measure the energy consumption. Can anyone clarify?
Help Fibaro keyfob or not?

Fibaro Heating Panel
Flowy posted a topic in Home AutomationCiao, probably I miss something, once the heating panel has been created and the room added to it do you need to start it in some way or it automatically starts by itself? The question is related to the fact that I created a scheduler, added a room with two thermostats but they never change set point. - all days have the same scheduler - system time is correctly set - the room is used only in that schedule Any idea? Thanks
Hello, I do not know if somebody posted it here. Fibaro, can you add label from virtual device to a condition into block scenes? It could save us many trouble with compare some desired values with label in VDs. I know, i can make it into Global variables, but they are unreliable (mine opinion only), because i think parameter "invokeScenes" is set to false by default. Many times happened to me that scene did not run, even if Global variable had desired value.

Notifications not working
nickboy posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi guys, I bought a Fibaro system (Fibaro lite 4.082, 2 IR sensors, 2 flood sensors) a few weeks ago and was able to set it up after a little bit of tinkering. Unfortunately, I am unable to get the notifications working. The alarm is clearly working on a user interface (red flashing light on screen, pin code to disengage etc) but the next step, notifications just won’t work. No emails or push to my iPad or Galaxy S6. I’ve tried several different email addresses and altered push to my S6 and iPad but I get nothing. I believe my programming is correct and all the notification info is saved before use so the problem must be something else. I’ve read forum and this ( http://forum.fibaro.com/index.php?/topic/18877-hcl-notifications-does-not-work-anymore/) but it seems to relate to different issue. This is a major deal breaker. Any ideas how to get it to work?? Additional question: On a notification scene under a general tab there are two buttons; one to run the scene and one to stop. Should I be able to send alarm notifications to test them just by pressing the ‘run’ button? So far it doesn’t do anything. Additional question2: Is there a way to see if my notification -scene has been activated at all? I read something about "debug" variable ( http://forum.fibaro.com/index.php?/topic/21766-mail-and-push-notification-stop-working/). How can I create one? All help and info will be much appreciated
New forum structure
T.Konopka posted a topic in AnnouncementsHello FIBARO Community, We have an annoucement to make. In a few days, you will see a new structure of our Forum. It will provide you with better experience and it will be more intuitive. New subforums were created, some of already existing subforums reordered/renamed or moved into certain sections so that topics would be in order and they would be easier to find. As you can notice we divided software updates to separate subforums in "FIBARO System Update" and "FIBARO Mobile Update". Moreover, we separated tablets and smartphones updates. Each update will be posted as a new separate subforum. First topic in every subforum will contain a changelog. Then, you are welcome to create new topics related to the new update. Please, share your insights and comments. Remember to check topics before you post in order to avoid duplicates. If you share an opinion with another user simply post within a topic or leave +1. "Crowd’s Solutions" – this subforum replaces Knowledge Base. You can share your solutions with the community. Note that you should attach files and/or configurations in the first post (keep it updated in case of any changes). Note, as well, that this subforum is dedicated for working solutions or requiring just a little help to be complete. This subforum is not a place for questions how to create a scene, VD, panel, etc. "Community Support" received a slightly new structure. We introduced “Newbie Zone” for new users of home automation. As you can see “Scenes, Virtual Devices, API” subforum is gone. All topics related to configuration, scenes, etc. should be posted within a subforum of given gateway. "FIBARO Community" is a place where you can discuss subjects concerning home automation and our Community. You can see a subform titled “Crowd’s Ideas”. You can post your suggestions regarding home automation, either products, integration, etc. “Community Comments” was created for your general suggestions on the Forum itself. These are the changes we made. We will be glad if you let us know what you think about the new structure of the Forum!

Hikvision Send Screens
JamieSonegoAus posted a topic in Home AutomationHi, I'm having trouble getting my fibaro to send my hikvision screen shots to my email address. My foscam works fine, but the 3 Hikvisions dont. When I press the "snapshot" bottom, nothing happens. I know my mpeg and jpeg settings are correct because when I set the device to refresh every 3 screens on the home page, it works fine. I've tested this to make sure it's using the jpeg path and it is. Any thoughts? I'm using the new Hikvisions 2142 4MP cameras. Thank you,
