  1. Hi I have a special situation : I would like to include and command in HC2 an Energy saving ventilation unit Tangra - EVB-06-HiE https://www.tangra.bg/uploaded/products_files/694_TANGRA_EVB_HiE.pdf , now I have a Fan speed controller unit Sentera MTY-0-15-AT - 1,5 A https://www.sentera.eu/Product/Details/eng/99236/Fan-speed-controller-electronic-15-A-230-VAC-50-Hz (Unregulated input / output: 230 VAC / max. 2 A), but I would like to change this fans speed controller unit with Dimmer 2 (Operational current: 0.25-1.1A). I know that there are some output current regulation difference between Dimmer 2 and Sentera, but isn't very much....can I do that ?
  2. I’ve recently installed a Fibaro Dimmer 2 in-wall module in my dining room on a 2-wire electrical circuit. This has been set up to control the main light using the load control of the dimmer (switch 1) and the lamps using z-wave control (switch 2). This works perfectly (see image). I would like to add a third switch to control another z-wave device in the wall panel. Would it be possible to do this by wiring in another Z-wave module in series or something? I’ve attempted this with a spare in-wall dimmer, but can’t figure out how to get it working on a 2-wire circuit like this one – perhaps it’s not possible. Any guidance would be really appreciated. See image for current working setup (two switches). Thanks!
  3. Witam Posiadam Dimmer 2, podpięte są pod niego żarówki GU10 hue color, czy ktos sie orientuje czy one nie sa sciemnialne, poza aplikacja philips hue? dziala komus poprawnie hue + dimmer 2? pozdrawiam
  4. Hey all, I'm planning to buy Dimmer 2 to control spotlights in my kitchen. I've asked in a local Fibaro store for an advice on how the whole light installation should look like to allow Dimmer 2 to switch on/off and dim the lights. The guy said I would need to use 230V powered lights (at least that's how I understood it) - so GU10 in that case, and the use of a transformer in the circut might be a problem for Dimmer. The case is that I would like to have AR111 lights and there's much more choice in the market for ones with G53 socket rather than GU10 - in fact most AR/ES111 GU10 offer more than 15W+, while I would like to keep it around 10W each bulb. The question then is - do you have any experiance connecting 12V bulbs + transformer with Dimmer 2? Is it really a problem? or it just requires to use a specific transformer to work? Any tips are greatly appreciated. Attached some pictures on how I believe they would like it to be and how I would like it to work. PS. I'm no electrician, so forgive me if it's missing anything important. Thanks in advance!
  5. Witam, To mój pierwszy post na forum Przeszukałem już manuale i wiele stron ale w dalszym ciągu nie mam informacji jak prawidłowo przygotować instalację i podłączyć moduły Fibaro. Głównie zależy mi na Double Switch 2. Zakładam, że schemat dla Dimmer 2 będzie wyglądał analogicznie tylko później zasilanie idzie na 1 a nie 2 źródła. Jestem na etapie planowania zmian elektryki. W jaki sposób powinna być przygotowana instalacja dla układu 2 oraz 3 włączników schodowych tak by wstawić tam właczniki monostabilne + odpowiedni moduł FIbaro a w razie potrzeby dało się również wypiąć moduł Fibaro i wstawić tradycyjne włączniki bistabilne? Dokładniej to chodzi o układy: 1. oświetlenie korytarza włączane/wyłączane: przy wejściu w salonie na piętrze 2. oświetlenie schodów włączane/wyłączane: na parterze na piętrze Byłbym wdzięczny za naszkicowanie takich schematów.
  6. Is it only me or is there a difference between Dimmer and Dimmer 2 when it comes to first "dimming" after turning the light on? On Dimmer1 installations when I turn the light on - the first "long press" of the wall switch actually dimms the light. Which is what I want and what I need, because when I need more light I do the double click and there it is: more light. I bought one dimmer2 (dimmer 1 seemed not to be on sale at that very moment) and it's behaving the other way (misbehaving actually): 1 click --> light turns on (expected behaviour) 1st long press --> it's brightening up (instead of dimming) 2nd long press --> it's dimming (which is not surprising...) Double click is still doing 100%. Does anybody know how to change it back to "normal"? To make it work like the dimmer1 does? I haven't found any parameter setting for it, but maybe there is one? Is it possible that I messed sthg up while connecting? Or is there at least a way to set double click to do the minimum light, like 4%? (I haven't found it either) If it is of any importance: Dimmer2 operates 2 philips LED bulbs 6,5W each with a bypass2 and momentary switches, dimming is great.
  7. Hi I am completely new to Fibaro and currently considering wiring up my newly renovated house with 35 dimmers and switches for each and every light circuit. The dimmer 2 and switch 2 look really good on paper and seem to do exactly what i need for basic light automation. I even ordered one and tried one on a test circut and it worked well. But what I worry about is that it needs to be really reliable. I simply cannot have the situation where I need to trouble shoot the system every few weeks, or work out why some of them are no longer found by the controller - these are the kinds of things I have been reading about. I'm dreading the situation where a simple wall switch does not turn the light on anymore , and I have to waste time to troubleshoot. Although I am very technically minded, I don't want something so simple like a light give me a headache - if this is not mature yet, I don't want it. Especially the physical switches that are directly connnected to the Fibaro need to work rock solid and near 100% reliable. The physical switches must work even in case the controller is out of action for whatever reason. If the software control, the remote access or the scenes have some issues now and again that's ok for me. It would be great of some of you could comment on long term reliability with the dimmers and switches, is it mature enough to use it throughout the house, I mean on EVERY circuit? Thanks in advance for your valuable experiences Felix
  8. I have just installed my first Fibaro dimmer 2 and testing has started. When trying different settings on the Home Center 2, I would like to know what the actual percentage level is for the dimmer. The slider gives a rough graphic indication, but no actual percentage reading. Is there a way for the Dimmer to inform me about the precise value?
  9. Having installed my first Fibaro Dimmer 2 on the HC2, I noticed that in addition to the main unit, which has a lightbulb icon, one of the slave units was also visible (i.e. not hidden). This unit had the tag X.0.1, where X is the allocated device number. This slave unit was also equipped with an icon, a remote control, but I have no other unit installed than the basic dimmer. Other slave units are hidden as expected. It is not hard to tick off that the X.0.1 unit should be hidden as well, but is rather confusing to have extra units appearing when I am installing only one.
  10. Hi, I am having a problem with the inclusion of my Dimmer 2 module (FGD-212 v3.5 ) into the Z-Wave>Me system, using a Razberry module (unfortunately, I don't use the Fibaro HC). Everytime I try to include the Dimmer, I get the error message "Inclusion takes a long time to start up.". I tried several inclusion menus: Add Device -> Fibaro -> Dimmer 2 v3.4 -> Start inclusion Add Device -> Add new Z-Wave Device and identify automatically -> Start inclusion Switching to the Expert-UI -> Network -> Control -> Start inclusion (Safe mode and normal mode) After activating the inclusion process in the Z-Wave interface, a red LED is flashing on the Razberry module. I then pressed the B-Button three times (within approximately 1 sec.). I also tried to include the dimmer using the switch. Unfortunately, none of the above described methods worked. I also did a reset on the dimmer - but it didn't change anything in the inclusion process. Both devices use the "EU-frequency". Any suggestions what can cause the inclusion problem?!
  11. Hi, I described my issue already in a topic about bypass/dimmer compatibility but I believe it requires a new topic. Scenario: - 2 x Dimmable GU10 Philips Master LEDs 5 W each on the circuit (around 11W in tottal according to dimmer measurement) - 3 wires configuration with Dimmer 2 and bypass 2 presented below - monostable single switch - bulbs calibrated after first start up - tried with 2 completely new dimmers and behavior is the same Behavior: 1. Momentary push of the switch turns the bulbs ON or OFF with no issues 2. Light is ON. Now, pressing it for a longer time doesn't do anything - no dimm is observed. Once switch is released, then it goes slowely to the lowest level of dimm. Since that time, momentary push makes it goes always to full brightness (ON) or to lowest dimm level again. The only way to make it works on and off is to double click the switch. 3. When I try to set whatever level of brightness in the HC2 it works perfectly. Same with on/off. I tried to remove DImmer unit but it works the same. Bypass and dimmers have been of the shelve, sealed boxes. Any ideas? Thanks
  12. Hi, i had installed a few days ago my first dimmer 2. It works fine with my in wall LEDs. But one question; If i turn off the light with the dimmer the LED lamps "fade out". I search an option to disable the fade out effect and ant to have a "switch off, lamps get off immideately. Is there an option/parameter to turn off this fade out effect? Thanks and best regards
  13. Can I install the Bypass 2 in the switch box? As noted I do have neutral available there. Assume it will work, but is there any reason this would be a bad idea?
  14. Is their a script available to associate a S2 switch of one Fibaro Dimmer 2 as a virtual switch to a ‘real’ S1 switch of another dimmer via zwave directly or via the HC2 en viceversa?
  15. Still looking forna solution to control dimmed lights wired or wirelessly from extra/different switch wall box. since the number of cables is insufficient in the different wallboxes required to connect multiple pulse switches in parallel to control lights connected to a dimmer 2 I am looking for alternative solutions. Would it make sence to use a 2nd (and 3rd and 4th) Dimmer 2 without lamp or load to be paired over zwave to a first Dimmer 2 just as a ‘virtual switch’? would that work if there is no balast?
  16. Question: Can I use 1 Sx cable connected to multiple Dimmers? (figure 1) Or can I connect it to 1 Dimmer to feed multiple S# (figure 2)
  17. Hi: I just bought a dimmer 2 but It can not be included to my Z-Wave controller. How can I know in which Z-Wave frequency (EU, US, or ANZ) it works? It is compatible with a Z-Wave frequency (US) of 908.4 Mhz? I attach a photo
  18. Hi Gurus! I've got a Clipsal universal dimmer & my sparky mate is struggling to wire that in with the Fibaro dimmer 2 (FD2). He's got the FD2 working ok without the Clipsal universal dimmer but can't get both. Can anyone give me a wiring diagram? Ideally without a neutral.
  19. Witam Jak w temacie jakie żarówki będą się ściemniały? Kupiłem już dwa ściemnialne modele i niestety można je tylko włączyć i wyłączyć ściemnianie nie działa. Może być podany model albo jeśli coś takiego istnieje jakiś parametr po którym, można taką żarówkę znaleść. pozdrawiam
  20. Hi guys, I am working on a project in which one of the ceilings has 17 GU 10 LED bulbs in it and the problem, as you probably already can predict, is the brand and wattage of the bulbs themselves. I thingk that it will be a must to sepparate the 17 bulbs into 2 circuits but 1 will have 9 bulbs and the other 8. So, one dimmer 2 for 9 bulbs and one for 8 bulbs... Sounds crazy, right? Even though they will be synchronized there will be some delay for the second Dimmer to react, but that is fine, because that is the only option. Even if we know the wattage of the LED bulbs we, for sure, do not know their PF, which you can not find even in the manufacturer's website. Fortunately I have 9 LED bulbs - GE, 5.5W, 380lm, 3000k and i will test them and i hope that even if the PF is like 0.5 (I hope it is above) the Dimmer 2 will handle them. So, any suggestions, tips and tricks are much, much appreciated
  21. I have multiple dimmer led strips in my living area which i need need to control as a single light but exceeding the load of dimmer 2. can i connect one light switch to 2 or 3 dimmer 2 module to control my lights.. all led light and dimmable drivers are of the same type. in other word can i use one light switch to control (send signal to) more than one fibaro dimmer 2 at the same time.
  22. Can anyone tell me why all the Fibaro actors also shows as a remote controller on the new 4.120 FM version?
  23. Hi All, This is my first post so bear with me. Im currently installing my first Fibaro system. I have wired a momentary push button switch to a dimmer 2 as per the instructions. i.e. sx to the switch and s1 from the switch. It works perfectly from the computer and app. It doesn't work as expected from the switch. i.e. i press and hold to dim and a quick push to turn on/off and it doesn't do anything. Is there something i need to do in the settings for the 'dimmer 2 I am a bit lost Regards Sean'
  24. Hi, I have several momentary switch points where I have a L & N wire and just one signal wire.to the dimmer module. Is it possible to connect the Dimmer with only one signal wire and use the L or N on the switch instead of Sx? regards: Klaas
  25. Hi, "OnEffect" and "OnEffectLevel" are upnp commands that control how the brightness level is set when a dimmer is set to "on". I want to change this in scenes in my VeraEdge, but the Dimmer 2 seems unresponsive to these commands. I found that they are optional in the standard. Does anyone know whether they are supported or not?
