HCL Custom Recovery
jack.daniels posted a topic in Tutorials and GuidesHi, here is the guide how to flash custom recovery image for the HCL 4.140-4.150 Custom recovery allows to flash unsigned firmware in your HCL. This way we can add some new features or fix annoying bugs fast. First of all, I want to say, the solution is 2 years old already. The security issue allows to execute any code on the HCL side. I have reported to Fibaro support about the vulnerability allowing to have complete contol of HCL device, but they answered its user's problem We need to get root access in order to flash custom recovery, but HCL's ssh server disabled password login. So we will use the root exploit to restart ssh daemon with user:password login. Then we can use ssh to complete the process. Rooting Reboot the HCL before any manipulations, because low free RAM may prevent running the ssh daemon after killing. We will use the Python 3 for exploit, but you can prepare the request with any convenient way. Edit hcl_4140_root.py script with your credentials and run it. Writing recovery image Use any ssh client (like putty) to login yout HCL using username root and password hc2 Copy the custom recovery image hcl_cr_v10.img to /tmp folder using ssh then run: Done! Now you can reboot recovery and enjoy the unsigned flashing. All manipulations is at your own risk. hcl_4140_root.py hcl_cr_v10.img
Zmiana centralki z HCL na HC3Lposiadam starą centralkę HCL z 2017 roku równie wiekowe elementy wykonawcze. Planuję wymianę na HC3L ale chciałbym wykorzystać również stare gniazdka i przełączniki. i tu pytanie - czy stare przełączniki i gniazdka będą działać z nową centralką ?
Using Lua on HCL
cag014 posted a question in Home Center LiteI'm wondering if there anyone wants to test All-in-One (same as HC3) running ON PC to control HCL with an option to write Lua functions also. (Including http requests)
Namron thermostat plug
ChristS posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesAnybody using the Namron thermostat wall plug with a Fibaro controller? I have been trying hard to set it up with my Home Center LIte, and cannot get it to work. Any advice would be welcome. Also, if anybody can recommend any other z-wave products to control electric heaters that would also be of interest.
I'm struggling with the set up of a power meter and a HC3 Lite. They are the only two components and I just cannot understand what I'm missing. I thought I'd post the issue here before asking support. I've installed a Philio Z-Wave smart energy meter (Philio Z-Wave Smart-Energy-Meter (blackcatcontrolsystems.com.au) and added it into my folks HC3 Lite z wave network. It appears to be reading and publishing the Volts, Amps, Watts, KWh and Power Factor, however: it won't register in the energy panel. The Watt current consumption is registering but only in parts of the app, A historical graph of watt usage will only show in the device's ADVANCE tab in the HC3 Lite interface, but not on the energy panel itself. kWh consumption is not counting. Screenshots attached. I'm not sure if that's enough information for someone better than me to help? Thanks, D
HCL stuck in U-Boot after update
AJD posted a question in Home Center LiteI initiated an update of the HCL via the App a few days ago. After that the contact was lost. I have tried all recovery options I have found with no luck. I opened up the HCL and discovered the AM3354 module inside. I then found the console port (3pins: 0V, Rx and Tx. 3.3V level signals) and see that it is stuck in U-Boot: U-Boot 2011.09-00010-g16f5006-dirty (Dec 18 2013 - 20:28:15) I2C: ready DRAM: 128 MiB WARNING: Caches not enabled No daughter card present Did not find a recognized configuration, assuming General purpose EVM in Profile 0 with Daughter board NAND: HW ECC Hamming Code selected 256 MiB MMC: OMAP SD/MMC: 0, OMAP SD/MMC: 1 Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed Error: Bad compare! failed NAND read from offset c0000 failed -74 *** Warning - readenv() failed, using default environment Net: cpsw Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0 U-Boot# help U-Boot# printenv U-Boot# It stops in U-Boot as there are some memory failure, but it does not respond to any known command. It reboots every 8th minute. The LEDs are flashing as in recovery mode, but HCL is not visible on the net and and it does do not respond on 192.168.81.1 when PC is connected directly. I find that a bit strange. Is U-Boot really holding the recovery web server? If command interface had worked, it could maybe be possible to restore the on board flash using TFTP.
Home Center Lite scenes camera photos notification
Florian posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceGood evening. Please let me know if there is a possibility for the Home Center Lite equipment to make a scene so that when the front door opens a room will send me a photo of who entered or left the house. I mention that at HC2 and HC3 I created this scene and it works. At HCL, even if there is a correctly configured and functional camera in the device, my camera does not appear in the scenarios when I want to configure when opening the door to send a photo by mail. May? how come? Thanks
Zmienna przez połowę dnia.
Solec posted a question in Sceny i InterfejsCześć. Jak ustawić w HCL zmienną co będzie trwać pół dnia? Potrzebuje zrobić 2 stany. Jeden trwa od piątku do niedzieli do godziny 15. Drugi od niedzieli od 15:01 do końca czwartku. Zrobiłem zmienną i 2 sceny, jena piątek, sobotę, niedzielę. A druga w niedzielę od 15. ale ta pierwsza w niedzielę chyba nadpisuje drugą. I czy jest sposób aby sprawdzić jaka jest aktualnie zmienna bez LUA? Może jako urządzenie wirtualne?
Scena ignoruje zmienną.

Change heating panel
Jordi posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHello First steps in HCL I have the need to activate and deactivate a thermostat, Active 1 week to apply the planing of the heating panel the next week or deactivate the device or change the thermostat's planning, so that it does not turn on. Virtua l Device? VAriables? Any contribution will be well received. Many thanks
Adding Fakro ZWP10 remote to HCL
JanStrojil posted a question in Home Center LiteHi everyone! I am going crazy from this, any help will be appreciated - I have a couple Fakro motorized blinds on my skylights and they come with their own remote that allows you to control them and also choose an automatic mode where they close based on sunlight levels. Fakro support told me that to keep this functionality after including them in the Fibaro system, I need to add the ZWP10 remote as a secondary and then associate it with the blinds. The trouble is: a) adding the remote fails on 4/5 attempts with "learning mode error" b) even if the remote is added without an error, it says it does not allow associations and tells me to reconfigure it c) reconfiguration gets stuck forever "waiting for battery device wakeup" (the manual for the remote does not tell you if it has a dedicated wakeup button, pressing any button including the IN/EX button does nothing) How to fix this? I am amazed that both these companies being Polish, the products work so poorly together - surely I am not the only one trying this. Anyone succeeded? Thanks!
HCL- If light on at 21:30 send notification
owen3408 posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHello, I have been trying different ways of writing the following scene and each method I have tried doesn't work the way I want. What I want is - If it is 21:30 and Chicken Coop Light is On Then Send push notification. Seems simple but in the above format every time the light is turned on regardless of time, the notification is sent. If I reverse the trigger so that If Light is on and time is 21:30 I will get the notification everyday at 21:30 regardless of whether the light is on or off I've tried splitting the scene over two scenes, Scene 1 would be 'At 21:30 run scene 2' Scene 2 would be 'If light on then send notification' and I get the notification everyday at 21:30 regardless of time. Any suggestions? Thanks
Slaves for HC3
cag014 posted a file in Quick Apps
995 downloadsThose 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 .
Humidity Panel (linked devices) - humidifier or dehumidifier
TimJWatts posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi, The manual is ambiguous - is the Humidity Panel designed to switch a humidifier or a dehumidifier? I've been trying to link an AEON multisensor (round one) and a TKB 13A switch to drive a dehumidifier in the shed. Seems to be coming on when it should be off, so I wondered... If anyone could confirm, it would save a lot of time Many thanks, Tim
Short beep on switch2?
kukulkan97 posted a question in Double Switch 2Hello! I have a germicidal lamp, and from it a remote controller. I want the Single/Double Switch 2 turn on this remote controller at a specific time. But in the HCL, I see that in scene I can turn it on and the signal will sound minute. Is it possible to somehow configure it to work so that the signal would turn on the remote controller and that's it? And then at a certain time a signal was sent to the remote controller and it turned off? Thank you

Secure thermostat and Qubino Flush on/off thermostat
Slim! domotica posted a topic in CommunityHi All of you, Does anybody have an idea how to connect a secure SRT321 and a Qubino flush on/off thermostat can be coupled? The goal is that the SRT should be the one to set the temperature and the Qubino should switch the electrical floorheating. Meanwhile the Qubino sensor should be able to measure the reached temperature. So f you set the temperature on the SRT to, for example, 25 degrees, it should switch the Qubino to on, if the measured temperature by the Qubino sensor is below the 25 degrees. as soon as the Qubino sensor measures 25 degrees it should switch of and ofcourse when the floor temperature comes below the 25 degrees it should switch on again.

wallmote quad with HCL
ggoetz56 posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi, can please somebody confirm that wallmote quad (V 2.3) works with HCL. My WMQ works fine with HC2 but there are no working scenes with HCL. The icon shows correct the input (i.e. touch button 1, or pressed/released button 2) but the associated scene doesn't start. Anybody with wallmote quad and HCL out there? Thanks Gerhard
HCL changes IP

HC2 & HCL Master and Slave Issues after Transfer
JPFChairez posted a topic in Tutorials and GuidesHi guys I want to share my expericence in migrating and integrating a HC2 with 3 HCL. The project considered originally 4 HCL’s, and in the end the client decided that he wanted to acces only one location and control everything from there. So the next step was migrating from HCL to HC2, a process a little confusing, but in the end was working; I updated everything to firmware 4.6 and tried to add the HCL’s to the HC2, with no luck I tried from another HC2 and also no luck, (strange that another HC2 couldn´t add the HCL´s ). So I started asking for help and some colleagues recommended to test using the HC2 from scratch, (erase everything to factory restore) and that finally did the trick. I have to say that auto search didn’t work, and I had to type the IP manually. So my theory is that the migration process must have done some block configuration in the HC2 because the operating system was coming from the HCL which doesn’t allow slaves. What do you think??
HCL frequent hang-outs
MichalM posted a question in Home Center LiteShortly after installation of update 4.570 I started to experience hang-out's of my HCL. The most frustrating is that the symptoms are not always the same. Sometimes it's "true hang-out" when I cannot access HCL web interface, mobile app return connection timeout and FibaroFob is not able to trigger scenes associated with it's button. But sometimes the hang-out is only partial. In such situation I can access WebInterface and mobile app also access the HCL, system reacts to commands send to devices (turn on, turn of, set value) but scenes are not executed. In this scenario for example when I press X button of FibaroFob the event of pressing X is recorded in event log but scene associated is not executed - or at least not successfully executed. If I executed the scenem manually from web interface then scene play button ">" turns to Pase icon "||" and never return to Play icon ">". After restart for some time everything works properly and then hangs again. Does anybody experience similar issue? Does HCL has something like syslog that I can access and review? If not does Fibaro offer a support in such situations?
Convert HCL from Celcius to Fahrenheit?
Rovingshoe posted a question in Home Center LiteI am a new user to Home Center Lite. It appears that the default configuration report temperatures in degrees celcius. Is it possible to change it over to using fahrenheit? I thought that clicking on the USA flag in the General Information tab of configuration would set it, or perhaps setting my location in the USA, but neither appear to change the default degress units.
Roller Shutter control by light sensor
Valdo posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHello, I am using Home Center Light. I have a Fibaro Motion Sensor and I try to run my roller shutter scene by light control, but I dont get it to work the way I need it. Today the shutters closed when the light sensor changed from 96 to 82 lux, but I want it to close at 10 lux. This is the scene I am using: Since it is in German: Roll_Zu_Status is the Variable for shutter closing clearance freigegeben means enabled Roll_Offen_Status is the Varable for shutter opening clearance gesperrt means disabled I hope this explains it good enough. One condition I want to realize is, that the shutters only close once in the evening and open once in the morning. For this i am using Variables "shutter opening clearance" and "shutter closing clearance". For setting the variable I use another scene. This is for "shutter closing clearance": It enables 30 minutes before sunset. And this is exactly when the shutters closed today. I can't find my error. Does anyone has an idea?
