  1. Hi everybody, I intend to install my entire house with Fibaro Walli family. I already use Dimmer and Switches but I have an issue with connection on of the dimmers. I removed the old switch from my bathroom and it had L (was live wire connected to it), L1 (was neural wire connected to it) and L2 (was ground wire connected to it) markings on it. The room has an extractor fan and smart LED which is managed by this single switch. Can anyone help me get it back? Thanks all!
  2. This is probably zwave basics but i don't know how zwave networking works in depth and I have an issue Sometimes the HC2 does not get a status change (close) of a fibaro door/window sensor the first time, if not after 10 seconds the signal is getting through. How can I reconfigure the path from the sensor to the HC2 (through other sensors?) Is this what "Mesh network reconfigure" in the ZWave section under settings means? and do I have to Mesh reconfigure that particular sensor only? I have a system with 95 physical modules
  3. Hello, I have created multiple virtual devices but never found out how to change the main icon. I have used: fibaro:call({id of VD}, "setProperty", "currentIcon", {id of icon}) but it doesn't work. I need a solution to setup an icon that stys unchanged, even if buttons are pressed. Thank you!
  4. Hello, I would like to integrate my Hue Motion sensors with Fibaro so I can use the for scene. Unfortunately, I do not know if there is a possibility why I ask here and try my luck. Kind regards SerrII
  5. Hi all I'm hoping that someone can help me out. I was setting some new block scenes earlier and the HC2 seemed to crash, I just got the floating circles as if the interface was loading. So I went for a shower and then ended up going out. While I was out I got quite a few emails saying the IP address of my laptop had been blocked due to incorrect logins. So when I have got home I have tried to log back into the system. I was greeted with incorrect username/password. Which was very strange considering these are saved in my browser. So I had no choice but to reset my password. When I logged in, to my horror all of my devices have gone, and all of the scenes. I then realised that I have limited privileges. The password which I reset was for the superuser account (the only account on the home centre). But the HC2 has given me a standard user account instead?! I can log into Fibaro ID. I can log into the home centre but as a standard user. I have tried to log in with the old admin admin. No luck at all, I really don't want to rebuild my system. can anyone help? thanks in advance!
  6. I just bought a driver of occasion, when trying to register it gives me a message that says that this device is already registered, as I must do to be able to activate it, since when I log in with my account, it gives me an authentication error
  7. is there a way to make home or away Variables by using your wifi at home so the Fibaro system nows when I ip dress comes into the area it know someone is home
  8. Has anyone ever operated this model of cameras in home center 2?
  9. I have two Fibaro sensor on my drive one at each end. i am trying to make a scene that says if sensor a is trigged first and then sensor b is trigged turn on lights but if sensor b is trigged first and then sensor a is trigged don't turn on lights not sure how to right it in Lua code
  10. my new fibaro relay is not adding to my fibaro system does anyone know if there is a propel with them
  11. Hey guys, I thought it would be a nice idea to share some of the new scenes which people are using. This way it could potentially give people inspiration on what the system can do while also helping people with similar scenes to perfect them of use them in a more efficient way. So I suppose I will start... Today I have put together a lighting scene, it took quite a while because it's two scenes per room. I started by adding 3 variables called time: Day, Dusk & Night. I have set a scene to trigger the variable depending on the time, so Daytime starts at 8am, Dusk becomes active at dusk (set by Fibaro's time clock) and finally night becomes active at 10pm. The break down is: Day - No lights Dusk - Lights at 100% brightness Night - Lights at 10% brightness I have attached the block scenes below. I can't wait to see what you have all been up to with your HC.
  12. I need help making a Virtual device work what this is, is a virtual device it has a button which I want to turn on device 61 however when I click the button its not working at all. I have this in the LUA: local http = Net.FHttp("w******@hotmail.com:F*******[email protected]", 80); local response = http:GET("/api/callAction?deviceID=61&name=turnOn"); local http = Net.FHttp("w******@hotmail.com:F*******[email protected]", 80); local response = http:POST("/api/callAction?deviceID=61&name=turnOn"); I have tried these two and all I want to do is on device 61 which works if I type this link in internet explorer, so I know the link works fine: http://w******@hotmail.com:F*******[email protected]/api/callAction?deviceID=61&name=turnOn I just want it so if I click one of the buttons in the virtual device it turns on the device (61) thanks.
  13. Hello, not sure if it should be here or other topics.. I need some help with creating a virtual device for Anthem MRX 720. I am just after basic working out the format, i will create the control after.. I have tried it like below and doesn't work. the amp freezes and wont take any more input by remote or physical on panel.. i have to unplug after i tried fibaro command and the reset. I am new to virtual device for AVR so i have taken some code from DENON remote (Device ip and port is 14999) - should i use this port, or port 80? Thanks fibaro:log("Connecting..."); local selfId = fibaro:getSelfId(); local icon = fibaro:get(selfId, "deviceIcon"); fibaro:call(selfId, "setProperty", "currentIcon", icon) local ip = fibaro:get(selfId, 'IPAddress'); local port = fibaro:get(selfId, 'TCPPort'); tcpSocket = Net.FTcpSocket(ip, port); tcpSocket:setReadTimeout(2000); tcpSocket:write("Z1POW1") fibaro:sleep(1000); result, err = tcpSocket:read(); tcpSocket:disconnect(); if (err == 0) then fibaro:log("transfer OK"); fibaro:debug("transfer OK"); else fibaro:log("transfer failed"); fibaro:debug("transfer failed"); end MRX-x20-AVM-60-IP-RS-232 (2).xls
  14. Dear fibaro Comunity, I bought two Blauberg VENTO Expert A50-1 W ( http://blaubergventilatoren.de/en/series/vento-expert-a50-1-w ) and I would try to connect to my HC2. This system is connected to wifi and is possible controll it with a blauberg app. Anybody could help me? thanks Simone
  15. Hello everyone, I've big issue I can't solve, maybe you guys can help. I have a door/window sensor which is (checkboxes) "hidden in the system" and "device is unabled". Now the problem is, this sensor is Armed... but I cannot Disarm it because it's greyed out in the interface, because it's is unabled. But I cannot enable the device because of the 403 error I get. Also removing from the system is not possible because of the 403 error. Is there, for example, a way to force all devices (no matter if they unabled or hidden) to disarm? In the alarmpanel of my Homecenter says that the alarm is completely disarmed, but I see in that my sensor is armed. How can I get out of this problem? It drives me crazy! Thank you guys!
  16. Hi I need it in a script not in VD. Please help with the scrip. My response is always nil. thank you function statusVU(); local http = net.HTTPClient(); http:request('', {success = function(resp) local vuStatusAus = (string.match (resp.data, "true")); if vuStatusAus == "true" then; return true; else; VuEinAus = "aus"; return false; end; end}) end print(statusVU())
  17. Hi, From various failed device pairings/inclusions I now have 163 initialisation errors when I restart or backup my HC2 I tried deleting the devices but they appear to delete but when I backup or restart the devices re-appear Does anybody know how I might get rid of these ? Thanks -f
  18. Hi How can i implement it for a script. It works in a VD thank you
  19. Hope someone can help on it I have the problem that some lights doesn't switch off and some randomly switch on. In detail: I have an ON Scene and an OFF Scene for the lights. They are triggered by Motion Sensor. I can see after the Motion Sensor is save again, the OFF scene is running, after a while it's not running anymore and the light is still on. The thing is it happens only sometimes, but too often. Here is an OFF Scene: --[[ %% properties 262 value 97 value %% events %% globals CRLED --]] --CR_LED_OFF ID 156 local date = os.date( '*t' ) local time = tonumber( string.format( '%02d%02d', date.hour , date.min ) ) local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger(); if(startSource["type"] == "other") then fibaro:call(28, "turnOff"); else if (( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(262, "value")) == 0 ) --Motion Dressroom and ( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(97, "value")) == 0 )) --Motion Bedroom then setTimeout(function() local delayedCheck0 = false; local tempDeviceState0, deviceLastModification0 = fibaro:get(262, "value"); if (( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(262, "value")) == 0 ) and (os.time() - deviceLastModification0) >= 120) then delayedCheck0 = true; end local delayedCheck1 = false; local tempDeviceState1, deviceLastModification1 = fibaro:get(97, "value"); if (( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(97, "value")) == 0 ) and (os.time() - deviceLastModification1) >= 120) then delayedCheck1 = true; end local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger(); if ( ( delayedCheck0 == true and delayedCheck1 == true and fibaro:getGlobalValue("CRLED") == "Active" ) or startSource["type"] == "other" ) then fibaro:call(28, "turnOff"); --Light Changeroom end end, 2*60000) --delay 2min end end ******************************************************************************** BTW I'm sure and double confirm the variable CRLED is Active Here is an ON Scene: --[[ %% properties 262 value %% events %% globals CRLED Mode --]] --CRBF_LED_ON 150 local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger(); if ( ( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(262, "value")) > 0 ) --Motion Dressroom and ( fibaro:getGlobalValue("CRLED") == "Active" and ( fibaro:getGlobalValue("Mode") == "Day" or fibaro:getGlobalValue("Mode") == "Evening" )) or startSource["type"] == "other" ) then fibaro:call(28, "turnOn"); --LED ON end
  20. Hi folks, I have a bit of a puzzler. I have a scene that sets to global variables based on light level from a sensor (device 217 ) The two options within the code are either 'day' or 'night' but sometimes it gets set to 'normal' Could anybody offer an explanation Scene code below... Thanks Frank --[[ %% autostart %% properties 217 value %% events %% globals --]] -- Configuration - Scene Info sceneName = "GV Time of Day, inside and outside" sceneVersion = "1.0.1" -- Scene Description -- Sets a global variable called TOD_LightMode depending on lux level from an outside sensor -- Configuration - Device IDs local OutsideLuxSensorID = 217 -- Validate Number of Scene Instance if (fibaro:countScenes()>1) then --fibaro:debug("stop scene") fibaro:abort() end function UpdateEventLog(eventStr) local currDate = (os.date("%b %d - %H:%M")) local updStr = (fibaro:getGlobal("Log_Event") .."".. currDate .."

  21. I brought HC2 last year in December. Because of my work I had just little bit more than four months to play with it in all this time. HC2 came with 4.056 firmware and as soon as I took it out of the box and connected to it, it was offering upgrade to 4.070 so I did it. Despite some problems, system was growing pretty fast, but programming was (and still is) quite challenging. Thanks to many members of this forum on their work and help that I manage to do something useful. I use jompa68's Alarm Clock, and Boomx's script to collect data for Netatmo wind and rain gauges. I also use cag014 solution for devices and scenes ID to be stored in global variable, and krikroff's Sonos remote and many many other solution given here by members petergebruers, chaicka and many others. Thank you, thank all of you for all good ideas, solutions, code and help! So, here it is in one picture, and it wouldn't be possible without your help on this forum. It is now on 4.100 with 72 modules included and the rest is in my signature I promised some members here that I will share what I have done and I will keep my promise, but just not yet. I have to go to my work again and I have to leave my "Angelina" to wait for me to come home to clear some bugs in code that I made and to give her more abilities. Luckily for me my wife is very supportive so I get list of her wishes and improvements that I can make every time when I came home. Thank you all and see you soon! Here is updated layout of my Angelina on 28th March 2017: To see it in all it's beauty click on picture, then on "Full size" in lower left corner.
  22. Hi, thank you in advance for your patience and hopefully support. I'm a good programmer, I've limited electrician skills but I successfully installed 4 fibaro roller shutters following online tutorials and done some other small electric changes in my home Now I would like to modify my electrical system adding one Fibaro double relay switch, in order to remotely control two lamps. Actually each lamp is controlled by two push buttons and one Finder Relay like this one On each button there are 2 wires attached: 1 common neutral and 1 wire attached to the Finder relay. What I would like to achieve: replace the two Finder relays with one Fibaro Double Relay in the electric box, and have all 4 buttons still working. Do you think this is possible? I attach also a draw made by me with my actual system. If this is possible, do you have some hints for needed wiring? Sorry for my non-technical schema Thanks in advance for your time Best regards

  24. Hi everyone, Firstly, I apologise for asking questions that I am sure everyone has asked. In a nutshell I have bitten on more than I can chew on a massive home renovation and want to install Fibaro however am going to have to do this myself. I have some knowledge of how this all works but need a ton of guidance. I am based in London and below is what I was hoping to do and if I can get advice on what products to look into etc that would set me on the right way… and please assume you are talking to an idiot and dumb everything down J Task 1 – Lighting From my understanding the Dimmer2 module will work up to 250w however I must have dimmable bulbs installed. However, for my hallway lighting which on each floor (ground, first floor and loft) I have a 3 way circuit to turn lights on and off, do I need to install a separate dimmer module to each of the circuits behind the switch (as I was planning on have a 3 way switch) OR do I have to install a relay switch to each of the circuits? Task 2 – Underfloor heating I will be installing water underfloor heating downstairs (5 zones off the same manifold) and then electric underfloor heating in the bathrooms upstairs and the loft. I really am confused on how I can integrate this into the system. What underfloor heating do I need? What valves do I hook up to the manifold…how can this control the temperature? How do I wire the thermostats for the electric UFH and how can temperature go up and down? Task 3 –Electric gate and intercom I am planning on having a gated front with an intercom. I want to be able to get notifications on my phone should someone press the buzzer so I can speak to them and let them in if needed remotely.. I also want thobes to open the gates when I press it. Is there a certain motor I should buy? Certain intercom system? Task 4 – Air con I want to either install or run all the pipework and fit the actual units at a later date (depending on how I am getting on with costs) so want to know what air con systems are fibaro compatible? I want the units in the ceiling with grills so everything is hidden. I understand that I could use modules (figuring out how to wire them is another story) however I want to go with the easiest and most straight forward options given it will be a self fit. Task 5 – radiators I want to be able to control the tempreture of certain radiators, can you confirm all I need is a danfoss radiator valve? Task 6 – front door lock I was locking at installing a front door lock that can be opening with a code and with your phone. Any specific locks that you would recommend? i want to be able to override it should it not work so that is important to me Task 7 – cinema room Basically I am going to have a cinema room in the loft. I will be installing sonos throughout the house and have over 10 zones. However, in my loft I want to be able to control the tv, set up lighting scenes for when I hit pause etc. I don’t see how just a relay switch can do this as I need to control the tv, sky etc. Can I please get information on this? I understand I am after a lot however I have tried doing a ton of research prior to taking up your time so really would appreciate the help on how I can do each of the above along with information on EXACTLY what I need given I am based in London etc. Thank you in advance. Kind regards, Taj
  25. Hi everyone I want to start a complaint about the Qubino flush relay's still not supported by Fibaro. Still templates are not available for these modules. I do not know why Fibaro still are not supporting these modules but to my opninion they should starting supporting these by now. Especially keeping in mind all other brands are supported much better. I did sent templates to Fibaro several times. A lot of customer have these units, probably because they support energy metering. So Fibaro, what's goinig on here? Please reply so we have as many as qustumers possible to put some pressure in Fibaro!
