  1. So, I've just recently got the HC3 and so far its been a bit of a battle to get it working any where close to the HC2. Out of the box, the setup script didn't work and it took a couple of iterations before I got through it. In no particular order here's some of the issues I've encountered to date: * The GUI is very slow, sometimes to the point that mouse clicks are missed, and certain portions of the GUI are not rendered. * The time can be out. At one point the clock on the banner was showing 1551, but the history was showing events with the correct time of 1630. * A lot of devices will appear as unavailable - in particular all my Fibaro Motion Sensors and Popp TRVs. I've changed some parameters on the Aeon/Aotech device I have as I suspect the network is busy * The Fibaro motion detectors are not detecting motion, they are reporting temperature, lux and will flash on the device when motion is detected... but not in the web UI. * Fibaro door/window detectors are not detecting doors opening. They appear to be reporting temperatures OK * Secure SRT Thermostat. One of these works, the other is reporting a temperature at least 10C higher than the room * Secure SRT Thermostats & Popp TRVs. There is no ability to set a temperature setpoint on these, and in the climate panel there's a warning that they may not work. They do work using the climate panel * Fibaro RGBW. The on/off button does not function and it doesn''t look like RGBW mode is supported. In fact, when included the RGB panel was hidden and five individual sliders were shown instead. It is impossible to control from any scenes. Setting a colour slider causes multiple entries to be logged in the history - one from user with set colour, then two, three, sometimes more from system with completed incorrect RGB values. * Everspring ST815 Light Sensor. Includes OK, never updates any value and doesn't send a command to the associated devices * Lots of devices without templates That's all for now, but these were all features that just worked in the HC2. In general, its not a good experience and trying to explain to my wife why she can't control the heating and that the lights in the kitchen aren't working is not easy. Other things that I wanted was the promised support of Zigbee and RF433 protocols, but they appear to be a distant dream for now.
  2. Hi dear Fibaro people. Anyone know how I can create a button in the app (for HC3) that I can use to enable or disable a scene? (A recipe would have been brilliant )
  3. 5.081.18 Hi friends. Could someone help me. I can't include it to HC3 system correctly. If i use the add-dialog without "s2 checked box' - the SCS C17 appears on the GUI HC3 with succes. But no "antenna" sign on screen of SCSC17. And without any reaction bw HC3 and SCSC17 - no update temperature, setpopoint adn etc. I understand that my SCSC17 doesnt use the S2 security level. and so i can't use 15 pcs of it on new HC3 that i bought instead of HC2...upset
  4. Hello HC3 owners/guru's, Is there anyone who can tell me what the impact is of a change of the physical location of a HC3 device? Currently I am living in Europe (Belgium). I might have to move to Asia (Philippines) next year and want to bring my HC3 and re-install it there in my new house. I see the following 2 potential problems: Z-wave allowed frequency bands and standards used are the same in these 2 locations, but there might be other restriction I am not aware of. The centralized monitoring/support of all HC3 gateways via the HC3 device ID might be disrupted if you move the device to another world region or country. Note: I experienced a similar problem (issue 2 above) when I moved around with my printer from Thailand to the Philippines a few years ago, as the ink cartridges are not interchangeable between the 2 countries and other regions.. I guess this is a question for Fibaro HC3 guru's or a Fibaro company HC3 specialist. Your help would be appreciated if you can answer my questions or can tell me how to contact a Fibaro HC3 specialist. Thanks Leo I used the below URL for my short survey. URL: https://www.silabs.com/wireless/z-wave/global-regions EU 868.4 MHz, 869.85 MHz - Standard EN 300 220 PH 868.4 MHz, 869.85 MHz - Standard EN 300 220
  5. I’m a newby in the home center world, and i wonder if it’s possible to adjust the parameters with a quick app of a linked Z-wave alarm sound device, so it can make different sounds based on the event? Such as beeping softly at a entry delay, or alarm sound at a burglary. The sound device supports these capabilities, but i can't find a working solution in the HC3.
  6. Hello, Please help with topic how to set aeotc siren 6 to turn on the sound until I disarm alarm.
  7. So, i'm still setting up the HC3. And run into some problems. I have 2 Zwave devices: a 8 button wall switch and a Fibaro multi sensor. The wall switch is configured to run some scene's. And the sensor is for later use, but also "adopted" in the device list. This is the second time in a few days, that the zwave devices stop working. The buttons stop activating the scene's, while when i start the scene manually it still works. The multi sensor shows up with a red cross in the device list. When i noticed this before, i just rebooted the HC3. And then it all works again. How can i troubleshoot this ? The console doesnt tell me anything..
  8. Witam serdecznie czy ktoś z was wie cos na temat integracji HC3 z rekuperatorem KAISAI - wyprodukowanym dla KAISAI przez włoską firmę SABIANA . Jeśli ktoś potrafi napisać integracje proszę o kontakt sabianaCloud.yaml

  10. Does anyone have experience with Foscam on HC3? I do not get a picture in preview. I connect to an external ip. Do I have to use https and install SSL certificate? I did not find the model I have so I had to use "other" I have to use MJPG streaming and use this path http://USR:[email protected]:IP/video.cgi
  11. i looks i i have a memory leak in Firmware: 5.070.810 If I reboot it drops to 80%, and if i restore backup, without events - it drops a little more. And after some days its close to 95%. My center is so slow - so it takes 5-10 seconds per update, click. Its close to worthless, im not even close to implement all feature.
  12. I explain, in summer, i put my heat controllers in summer mode. For that i execute this commands: 1. api.post("/devices/"..id.."/action/setThermostatMode", {args = {"ManufacturerSpecific"}}) 2. api.put("/devices/"..id, {parameters = {{id = 2, value = 0, size = 4},{id = 3, value = 1, size = 4}}, useTemplate = true}) 3. api.post("/devices/"..id.."/action/setProtection", {args={"2"}}) 4. api.put("/devices/"..api.get("/devices/"..id).parentId, {properties = {pollingInterval = -1}}) 5. api.put("/devices/"..id, {properties = {saveLogs = false}, enabled = false, visible = false}) (1) I set my heat Controllers in Manufacturer Specific, but after few hours, he return to Heat parameter. For summer, the heat controllers must be fully open. (2) I change the parameters for deactivate OpenWindow notification and other. This command work, but the informations displaying in the HC3 not refresh data... Have a idea for force a "refreshStates" command to HC3 ? (3) It's the same with point (2), he work but not refreshed on HC3. (4) Copy this command normally sended by HC3 when i change the properties of the device. (I don't know what this command is for.) (5) Disabled heat controllers for be sure not be changed by the HC3 in the futur. But after few hours, the heat controllers return to Heat mode... Have you a idea, why heat controllers return to Heat mode after few hours and why when i change the parameters, the HC3 not refresh display data ? P.S. In my script, for be sure the HC3 not interfer with heat Controllers, i have deactivate the climat zones: Thanks for your help !
  13. Dear all. I had an inquiry from a teacher at the Danish electrician education. They will put the HC3 in the curriculum, because smarthomes will be the future.✌️ so... to all the kids learning basic programming - we need a Proof of Concept.. How can I provide a solution where, i from an Internet website can control the something in the HC3, it could be a simple switch. So controlling the HC3 from another network that itself. What the want to achieve it the HC3 is on the home network. Have a website showing video stream with a HC3 controlles Bulb, and a button on the same website that can control the Bulb. Its for Exhibitions getting interest for potentially young students .. No MQTT or other mittleware, it needed to be done direct, like when Alexa, Google assistant is controlling this. No Firewall port forwarding As I see it, I need two moduels, One on the external website and one one at the HC3. Anyone up for helping with a PoC fort this? have some code already? or can structure the design? I think its in Fibaro interest to participate themselves also? Best Regards
  14. Hi, I really need some help. I have 2 soil moisture probes wiring in correctly (I believe) into the RGBW unit. Using a multi meter between the ground an IN1 & IN2 i get 3v and 8v readings. My problem is that no matter what setting I use in HC3 the preview window for each channel always reads zero. Have I got the wrong end of the stick? Please help me! Thanks, mike.
  15. Hi All, I have been searching for a while now on the forum, but have not find the solution to my problem. We do have the danalockV3 and the Fibaro intercom. Both device can be found in the HC3. Now the problem is that when we try to open the Danalock trough the intercom or in a scene, the Danalock doesn't respond to it. If i look in the recent history of the HC3, i can see that the scene has run. As well there is a action that is called Action: Device polling. Does anybody know how i can fix this? Happy to hear your answers. I am new in this world so please be free to ask me if you need more information. Greetings, Thomas
  16. If I restore a dead device connected to the HC3 through the mobile app. Then the device recovers immediately after the push of the button. But if I do the restore by code (in a HC3 QuickApp) then the device does not restore. I use (wakeUpDeadDevice(deviceID)) for this. local parentID = 201 fibaro.wakeUpDeadDevice(parentID) fibaro.sleep(1000) fibaro.call(parentID,'turnOn') Is there any other code similar to the code the mobile app uses?
  17. Version 1.0.0


    Those QuickApps intend to use as a slave devices on HC3 to emulate original devices on HC2/HCL or secondary HC3. The main purpose is to emulate devices of HC2 controller to create same environment on HC3 before migrating the devices. You can use these devices as standard HC3 devices in Lua, block scenes and QuickApp (triggers and control). After migration you just need to delete slaves and change device IDs in code. To make it easy, recommended to use json Home Table. In addition if you intend to keep HC2 or HCL as part of your Home Automation, these slaves provide an option to run your system on HC3 only. You can expand your HCL usage by using Lua, block scenes and QA on HC3 to control and monitor devices on HCL. Please use slaves according to device functionality. For sensors use SlaveSensor, for dimmers use SlaveDimmer, for RGBW dimmers use SlaveColor or SlaveColorW (option to change white level). It's very important to use correct KeyFob slave (sceneActivation or central Scene) After downloading the QA, open user_data file and enter credentials, IP and device ID. slaveRate value is in milliseconds and determines the time rate to fetch the data from original device. For example if device on HC2 turned ON, within 700 milliseconds the slave device on HC3 will be turned ON also Every slave device has an option to stop/start emulation by pressing toggle button .
  18. Hello, I created following scene that turn off all the lights in my apartment: This scene should be automaticly launched while button 2 is pressed 2 times on Dimmer in Lobby. But it's not launching. It is properly running by mobile app. Does anyone knows what I am doing wrong ? What to check ? Regards.

    HC3 LUA vs HC2

    In making the transfer from HC2 to HC3 based on a cloud backup (update 4.581 Beta) it is stated that "scenes will not be moved and need to be created again". That's OK, but it would be helpful when planning the transfer to know what the differences are (in syntax and available functions) between the two LUA versions. I know that the new LUA editor is documented in https://manuals.fibaro.com/home-center-3-lua-scenes/ . What I would hope to see in addition, is a side by side comparison of all the crucial differences, to enable a pre-edit of the old LUA scenes before entering them into the new editor. Something like this: If you used this in HC2 LUA: You need to do this in HC3 LUA: fibaro.debug("txt") fibaro.debug("tag", "txt") os.time() ??? etc. If we all contribute to such a table as we identify all the differences, we may be able to help each other prepare for HC3. Not all differences can easily be summarized in the simple two-column format above, however. For the new definition of conditions and triggers, it seems it would be more appropriate to give a few examples of old codes (with triggers) converted to new codes. PS: I haven't even decided to buy the HC3 yet! But getting a feel for the amount of re-programming needed to convert my scene is an important factor in making that decision. The suggested table is now shown in a pdf file attached to this post, see below. It is regularly updated as new contributions are posted. LUA HC2 vs HC3.pdf
  20. I have added Intercom Qapp (HC3) Trying to create a trigger to sound siren when Button is pressed on Intercom. However I can't get the trigger to work; { conditions = { { id = 347, isTrigger = true, operator = "==", property = "buttonTwoIsPressed", type = "device", value = true } }, operator = "all" } Any ideas how to get it working?
  21. Hi when I add the powerview QA from fibaro HC3 (the built in one) it grabs my scenes from powerview and all is good. I can activate the scenes in "preview" and via lua. But.. the next day.. they don't work anymore.. I can then remove the QA and readd it.. then everything works again. Does anyone outthere use the powerview QA? have same experience? found a solution? Right now my only idea is that because I had automations running natively in powerview they ..for some reason.. break the link.. so after an automation has run in powerview.. something happens. I've now turned off my automations in powerview app and created a simple lua script to close the curtains tonight 30 minutes after sunset. tomorrow we'll see if they still work.
  22. Dear Fibaro community, I am new to to the Fibaro and I have already played with the setup of HC3. One thing that I would like to ask or request from Fibaro Dev team is the possibility of having more Setpoints in the Climate settings section. One or two more fiedl to be more flexible in the temperature setup would be great. I have tried to research on the forum but have not found any guidance. Take care, Jakub
  23. Well i am running HC3 and i have a Aeon Gen5 Siren in my backyard for when i am working in my shed. Neighbours told me that my Siren ( that i am using over there for iff someone rings my frontdoor bell ) sometimes keeps going. So i wonder if i can use a scene or something that turns that Siren off every XX time so neighbours can't complain any more.
  24. Hi, On HC2 I used to have one virtual device to control all LED lights in room. Turning On and Off should be no problem. But how to handle slider? Assuming QA is working how to post action from HA Bridge to set appropriate value? HC2 device: and LUA: Slider: local slider = _sliderValue_ local jT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("HomeTable")) -- REFERENCE TO DECODE TABLE fibaro:debug('Slider value: ' .. slider) -- Set both LED dim value if tonumber(slider) == 0 then -- turn Off fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_switch, 'turnOff'); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_entrance, 'turnOff'); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_dummy, 'turnOff') else fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_switch, 'setValue', slider); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_entrance, 'setValue', slider); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_dummy, 'turnOn') end OFF: -- Set LED Off local jT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("HomeTable")) -- REFERENCE TO DECODE TABLE selfId = fibaro:getSelfId(); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_switch, 'turnOff'); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_entrance, 'turnOff'); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_dummy, 'turnOff') fibaro:call(selfId, "setProperty", "ui.Slider1.value", 0); MAX: -- Set LED Max local jT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("HomeTable")) -- REFERENCE TO DECODE TABLE selfId = fibaro:getSelfId(); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_switch, 'setValue', 100); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_entrance, 'setValue', 100); fibaro:sleep(100); fibaro:call(jT.hall.Light_LED_dummy, 'turnOn') fibaro:call(selfId, "setProperty", "ui.Slider1.value", 100); In HA Bridge to set slider value I used for example: http://[email protected]:[email protected]/api/callAction?deviceID=281&name=setSlider&arg1=6&arg2=${intensity.percent} to click button: http://[email protected]:[email protected]/api/callAction?deviceID=348&name=pressButton&arg1=1 Anyone can help on this or already have QA and can share so I can adopt it? Is HA bridge command still the same as on HC2 or needs to be changes?
  25. QA for full control of PC from HC3 (On, Off, Restart, Sleep and Hibernate states) You will need: 1. PC is connected via Fibaro wall plug (or other device with power measurement) 2. installed application Switch Off 3.5.1 from Airytec on your computer http://www.airytec.com/en/switch-off/get.aspx 3. In Switch Off application - go to menu -> Options -> Remote -> Edit web interface settings -> you have to define your port ie. 28100 and password 4. In PC firewall you have to allow Incoming rule for TCP port that you have defined in SwitchOff application ie.28100 5. Working WakeOnLAN (WOL) on your PC (allowed in PC BIOS and on your net card) Installation: 1. Upload this QA to HC3 2. In QA variables you have to define: - PC_DevID : ID of your PC power plug in HC3 - PCAirytecPort: port define for web interface in SwitchOff application from Airytec - PCAirytecPassw: password define for web interface in SwitchOff application from Airytec - PC_IP_Address: IP address of your PC ie. - PC_MacAddress: MacAddress of your PC for WakeOnLAN (WOL) ie. 4B:BC:24:D1:E5:25 - PC_WOL_Port: Port for WakeOnLAN (WOL) - usually 9 - Level<xxx>PC : power in W for showing correct PC state: power >= LevelRunPC PC state: running power >= LevelSleepPC PC state: sleeping power >= LevelHiberPC PC state: hibernating power >= LevelOffPC PC state: off power = 0 PC state: fully off (power>0 to LevelOffPC also means PC state: off) QA PC version: 0.20 - 13.2.2021 PC.fqa
