Doubts on the equipment
JFS posted a question in Scenes and Interface
Heating Panel: Strange Midnight Behavior
NilsAsp posted a question in Home Center 2I have been using HC2 since mid August. Mainly to control a number of Heatit Z-Wave Thermostats (electric floor-heating). Each room is assigned to different zones in the heating panel. In the heating panel I have designed time schedules for each zone with different set temperatures depending on time of the day. Lately (3 weeks ago) I have started to observe some very strange behavior. The temperature is set at 18 degrees from 22:00 (10pm) to 05:00 (5am). At 22:00 the temperature starts to fall (I track this using the consumption tab). The temperature continues to fall until 0:00 exactly (midnight) when it bounces back up to 23 degrees. It then maintains 23 degrees until next time the heating schedule shifts to a new set-temp (@11am) Anyone that have experienced this problem? Thoughts and ideas highly appreciated!
HC 2 padła nagle; nie widać jej w sieci
mpisar posted a question in Home Center 2Nagle przestała mi działać centrala HC2 . Objawy świecą wszystkie diody na stałe a pierwsza z lewej miga. Centrala nie widoczna jest w sieci pod żadnym adresem IP jak również po adresie MAC. Czy może miał ktoś taki przypadek i może mi pomóc ? Chyba to było po zaniku zasilania. Centralę mam ponad 4 lata
Temperature reporting stopped
kalmanv posted a question in Home Center 2Helo, From one day to another, temperature reporting stopped on my devices(Danfoss RS/FGMS-001). I checked it in the event panel, it reports(motion,lux etc) everything but the temperature. Sensors are responsive to the motion, i see the correct temperature, but it does not report back to HC2. I'm using them to control my heating via linked devices..Parameters are set correctly. Any ideas? Thanks!
Holiday Home Automation
BusterB1959 posted a topic in Home AutomationI would like to pull ideas of how to use Fibaro Home Automation to look after my Holiday Home. I propose to put an HC-Lite in my Holiday Home and then VPN it back to my HC2. Scenes I would have is to turn on the outside lights just before sunset and at sunrise Thinking of an alarm system, ideas on Devices here, please Maybe a Door lock so I can send keys digitally and enable them for a set period. I would like this to be an area where people share ideas and maybe experiences for Holiday homes. Brent

Blank screen while changing admin password on IE on HCL
kunoch posted a question in Home Center LiteI do not know about HC2, but on HCL I get the best results with ie (in private mode). The only issue I face with ie is that when trying to change the password for the administrator, I get a blank screen, so I use chrome for this. changing screens in ie takes around 3 sec or so. sometimes it takes up to 30, even when 'similar' window changes are made. Why? I have no clue.
Responsetime of browser during config of HC2
miwa posted a question in Home Center 2Dear all, I am a newby. Running HC2 since yesterday version 4.140. Added some rooms, Hue bridge and a Fibaro motions sensor. What I am complaining is the reponsetime of the HC2 while jumping between different menu items eg. from "Your Home" to "rooms". It takes 5-10 seconds to change to another item, HC2 is showing circle with blue dots in this period. The reponsetime in video tutorials is quite ok (1-3 s). So I changed from PC to Laptop, trying different browsers like Chrome and Firefox. But still the same slow action. What about your responsetimes and if they are shorter, what could be the reason. Or is this quite normal for HC2?
The device friendly name
jack.daniels posted a topic in SuggestionsHi, just an idea for future updates: To let a user to specify any device's friendly name (to use in scenes, VD) Every new device has ID (its r/o property) used to address in scenes etc. But in big system the ID tells nothing, and its very hard to operate with numbers. I read the forum, there is HomeTable workaround for this, but IMO the best would be to have editable device friendly name in device properties. Lets say it will assign "device.<id>" by default. Also would be great to add a few functions to lua framework like: fibaro:GetValueByName("<device_name>","value") And let users to use device_name as triggers. BR

Qubino modules template missing
Willem-Jan posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi, I'm working on a Home Center 2. With all Qubino modules sofar (flush dimmer, Shutter DC, relay 2 and relay 1) there is an error that there is no template available. For Fibaro sensor and dim modules, it works fine. How do I get the correct templates in the Home Center and where can I find them? Thanks! Willem-Jan

Erratic behaviour of HC2 before crashing. Cause?
FrancoisRB posted a question in Home Center 2Good evening, My Fibaro Home Center 2 keeps crashing. Tried a lot of things already, like recovery and putting back the backup. Recovery and completely reinstalling the setup (excluding and including all devices) helped for a month or two. Then coming home from a short vacation, the HC2 had crashed again. I notices that the Aeon Multisensors kept sending updates on humidity, lux, etc all the time. So I switched those updates off, only using the breached/safe status updates. Still the HC2 kept on crashing. Updating from 4.130 to 4.140 did not help. Then I did another recovery and putting back the last 1.40 backup. Now I monitored the CPU activity. Figure 1: Without any reason, the CPU starts to behave very erratic at 17:15. Figure 2: During that time no updates are recorded on the laptop. But somehow the HC2 survived and kept on going. Figure 3: Another spike at 19:10 Figure 4: But the HC2 keeps performing normally Figure 5: At 19.35, again this erratic CPU behaviour, but now the HC2 crashes while we were watching Netflix. So no activity/movement in the house. Can anybody explain what is going on? What is causing these strange CPU activities? Are these CPU activities linked to the crashing of the HC2? And what can be done to prevent the HC from crashing over and over again? I appreciate any comment. Setup: HC2 Aeon Multisensors 6 (5x, using adapters, not batteries) Fibaro Dimmer 2 ( 4x) Fibaro socket switch (1X)
Communication problems with Fibaro water sensor
Xtrnisse posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi! Since a while back now I'm having communication problems with two of my Fibaro water sensors. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0e9d3nfn2xbjly3/Skärmklipp 2017-10-31 21.41.10.png?dl=0 This is a problem since they are part of a setup to prevent my bathroom and kitchen from flooding, should there be a leak from the washing machine or dish washer. The batteries in the devices look fine in the HC2, and when i test them they do warn for a flood. But since they don't communicate with the HC2, the magnetic valve doesn't close the water flow. I've already tried re-building the Z-wave network, with no luck. Any suggestions for how to fix this?

Aeotec Wallmote Quad for dimming
Helgemor posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi All I’ve just bought an Aeotec Wallmote Quad controller. When I add it to my HC2, I can select what to do when I press or hold any of the four buttons. Nice! But: I want to use it to control a Fibaro Dimmer. The Wallmote has swipe commands that should do this, but I can’t get it to work. Please help!

Cannot get mt ds18b20 reporting temperature
RolandK posted a topic in FIBARO ProductsI added dallas tempsensor to my already existing binary sensor. excluded the sensor and included the sensort again. i would have expected a temperature sensor to be added next to the binary sensors. Unfortunately this did not happen. anyone have experiences like this and has a solution ?
samuel posted a topic in Home AutomationHow many backup copies do you normally keep in backup/restore in the HC2 ?

LUA get parameter values
Helgemor posted a question in Home Center 2Hi. I'm an experienced programmer, but a novice in LUA. 1. I have some qubino smart meters, and would like (of course) to read all the parameters they can provide. It seems to me that every single parameter in them get an ID in HC2. When I want one of the values, i use fibaro:getValue(63,'value'); But: For some of the parameters there are no ID's! So how can I get their values? Examples of missing parameters are 143: Reactive power total and 144: Power factor total How can I get to those? 2. Is there a way to get parameters based on the device parameter numbers? I'd like to use some function v=fibaro:getParameter(main id,parameter number); Is this possible? 3. Where can I find a list of legal parameter values to the getValue call? Helgemor
morpheus75 posted a question in Scenes and Interfacehi all i have a Nest stat connected to my HC2 via the IFTTT service. I updated my HC2 on Sunday to latest 4.140. Since Tuesday morning i can no longer send any data to IFTTT. the error i received is: [DEBUG] 11:10:37: https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/temp/with/key/CENSOREDKEY?value1=15 [DEBUG] 11:10:50: error = Transport endpoint is already connected i put the URL in the browser and that worked perfectly fine which leads me to conclude that the fault is with HC2. Has anyone else experienced this and importantly any solutions?? Thanks in advance
TKB switch in devices
15green posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesSince upgrade to 4.130 I have noticed my TKB 1.0 metering switch has added three new devices with a previously unseen icon (see attachment). These appear to be reporting Voltage, Amps & Power Factor which I am thinking must be related to calculating the consumption is Watts which seems to work ok. However these readings never change in the HC2. Does anyone know if these are what I think they are and how do I make them report real values?
HC2 and external database
melomaan posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, I am looking for solution to get data from external MySql database to HC2. Has anyone found a way to directly get data from Mysql to the system? Or is there a good way to insert externally data to GlobalVariable through http get/put request? Google has not been a good mate to help on the matter or am I too lazy to see :(. HC2 should have a way to do this (communicate to external MySql as it stands on one itself)... Thanks for input.
[Question] What do you use [device] for ??
alandee posted a topic in Home AutomationHi All, wondering what other people use some of the more ( well to me anyway ) obscure devices for .. I'm not very imaginative when it comes to some impelemtations with the newer hardware, preferring to use a switch or relay ( only because I'm comfortable with them ) So for instance I have 3 buttons in the daughters room .. green for lights on, yellow for 50% and red for lights off. ( my lass is 24 now ..! ) Not very imaginative... I use my fob to control the opening and closing of my observatory, my upper windows and my blinds, but I'm sure there are some better utilisation of the fob as the windows and blinds are on lux and weather anyway I don't have a swipe as I don't know how I would utilise it, or how people use it... I feel pretty sure someone is using a swipe for something very cool though. .. and then I wonder if, having just google homed my home, it all becomes a bit irrelevant when you can control lighting, kodi etc with your voice .. Until it's supported properly in HC2 it's a bit hit and miss, but it has already started insiduously transforming how we do things at home in teeny weeny little ways .. and I keep finding more and more ways of integrating it. I've just decked out my mother inlaws house with google home so she can call out for an assist if she needs it, dial us by voice, get the weather, and generally have somoen to ask questions of and get reminders from for medications and things like that, as well as running a shopping list so we can pick things up for her on our daily visits. .. she also has a HCL which I installed, that runs a series of motion sensor night lights, I'm thinking of a button near her favorite chair and perhaps bedside to turn on all lights in the house, as she's 92 and chooses to live alone, so it might give her a little more security .. I can't see a swipe in her future though ? or a fob ( too small anyways probably ) .. Talk about 1st world problems .. too much technology, and I don't know how to implement it Cheers for any thoughts, or ideas, or any other items you've integrated in an unusual way ? Cheers, al.
