  1. Version 1.0


    INTRODUCTION Advanced Battery Check VD (further in text ABC VD) scans for all included battery devices and adds them to the list sorted by either battery level, device ID or room ID depending on user settings. Also it can send list of all devices or just devices that needs battery to be replaced to e-mail and/or popup. Can also send push notification with the worst battery status. PREREQUISITES Fibaro Home Center 2 with firmware 4.160 or greater FEATURES Scans for all
  2. Version 1.2.4


    [SCENE] Battery Check scene v1.2.4 Hello all, Here it is, scene that will check battery level on all your battery operated devices and inform you on time when replacement is needed. I wish to thank very much to @petergebruers and @szmyk for code that searches and sorts all battery devices included to HC! THANK YOU! VERSION HISTORY: 28/09/2017 - v1.1 - first release 29/09/2017 - v1.1.1 - added translations for Dutch and Slovak 29/09/2017 - v1.2 - added possibility to define excluded and rechargeable devices. Added 3 new messages and a
  3. In HC3 battery-powered devices lack a free field to indicate the date of battery insertion. For example on the genaral tab. tx.
  4. Version 1.0.0


    The Virtual Device shows the battery status of battery powered devices. In addition, it will send an email to a user when the battery is low or dead. It is suitable for a small number of devices and gives you a snapshot view. Note that the Lithium battery drops suddenly and if its below 80 then its marked as low and should be replaced. The battery is checked once a day roughly. The lua code is attached. I have written it for efficiency instead of accuracy, as lua execution is so so slow. Hence the use of delays. You need as many labels in the VD as the number of d
  5. Does anyone else have this same issue with the fibaro motion sensor? Did you resolve it, if so how? you add the motion sensor to home center and it works for a month then all of a sudden it will not detect motion and becomes a dead. it will not wakeup or respond to any commands in HC2. checked the sensor and has full battery so its not a battery issue. this has happened twice already. supposedly it is "up to date" in terms of software updates. Fibaro please fix this issue!!! *yes I have re-added it to HC2 but that does not resolve the issue permanently.
  6. I have bought 5 smoke detectors and connected them to my Eneco Toon (Z-Wave). One of the detectors drains the battery within 2 weeks. It does not matter where I locate the detector. And it's strange that only one does it. Is there a solution??? Settings???
  7. Since I replaced the battery (new) from my smoke sensor, my battery level stays at 30% according to the scene from @Zoran Sankovic - Sankotronic. battery check V1.2.2 What i tried to resolve it 1. after replaced the battery i click on the b-button (even tribple click, no success! 2. soft reconfigure device, no success!! 3. exclude device from HC2 / include device in HC2, no success! 4. reboot the HC2, no success! I am out of options what i need to do, to get my battery level up to 100% again. Any ideas? HC2 version 4.531beta

    Battery empty

    Hi Guys, Hope someone can explain this. Why are batteries of the sensor suddenly empty ? I run a battaery check every knight , yesterday is wass still at 89%, today it is dead.... I changed the battery and everything up and running again. Any idea ? this is the third sensor that behaves this way.
  9. Hi, I added a couple of more battery devices to my setup and decided I needed some type of a battery monitor This virtual device is triggered to run every 6 hrs (by @Sankotronic Main Scene Scheduler) and checks a set number of Battery powered devices and sends a message if the battery is below 30% It uses the Smart message Hub to send alerts but could easily be adapted to use email or popup In addition to the 5 battery devices monitored by this VD, I also have 2 Minimote remotes but since they don't report battery level I couldn't include them I know there are s
  10. Hi, happy FIbaro users. Is there any expirience of using Fibaro battery powered sensors with Li-ion rechargable batteries? When you have 10+ devices like that, need also to have battery shop on a speed-dial.
  11. Hi all, I'm suddenly in a position where a lot of my sensors are showing low battery - which makes sense having bought a lot of them around the same time. I'm currently very nervous to change any of the batteries because there hasn't been a single time that I've changed a battery and had no issues with sensors. Door sensors in particular, it seems as though I change the battery, the sensor works for a few days before becoming unresponsive and ultimately killing the battery very quickly. This then leads to me being required to do a full reset of the module, delete/remove
  12. I have an VD to gather real time values for monitoring battery bank. I can see these values in HC2 but not in Fibaro App (android). Is there an Fibaro App bug? Could be fixed somehow? Thank a lot for any feedback, Tomas
  13. I have four door/window sensors compatible with HomeKit. Each consumes a brand new battery every three months or so. Is this right? For some reason, I have been under the impression that the battery should last over one year.
  14. Has anyone some experience with powerring battery operated devices? there are many step down converters in the market converting 5V DC (USB charger) to 3,3V DC - suitable for different battery operated Fibaro modules. Has Anyone tried this? Although after this modification the device will be still recognised by HC2/HCL as battery powerred, it can be a solution in some situations where powerline is present and we can then forget about checking batteries
  15. Hi, I'm monitoring hot water heater with Fibaro Door/Window Sensor and attached DS18B20 waterproof probe - temperature values in F are reported via Smartthings hub and seem accurate. Problem is that reported battery level is draining rapidly - about 10% daily! Referring to the Advanced Parameters in manual, #50 is "interval of temperature measurements", with a default of only 300 = 5 minutes. Why is it so low, and how can I increase to about an hour from Smartthings - is custom handler or script needed?. Thanks for any help
  16. Hi, Now, I've been down this path before, every year indeed I go through it .. the manual ( in this instance I am referring directly to the Fibaro Door Window Sensors and it's manual http://manuals.fibaro.com/door-window-sensor/ ) suggests you have to change the battery when it turn red ( in my case when I get sick of all the reminder emails which we can't control frequency etc ! ) but the reality is for a number that I change it will not go smoothly, and this year it has annoyed me more than usual <rant> The reality is, you need to ensure the door
  17. Hi, to get to the point: - I am on HC2 software version 4.056 - I have 14 (!) HRT4-ZW version 5 which work astonishingly well together with the HRT4 ASR BUT since my update to 4.x I am running around each week-end to change the battery in at least one thermostat. The bug is mentioned by Fibaro itself in v 4.018 exactly ONE YEAR AGO (http://forum.fibaro.com/index.php?/topic/16346-update-hc2-4018-beta/?hl=hrt4-zw) and is since then on the "we know it"-list. I do not dare to ask when this fix will be in.. So instead I tried to set the "wake up interval (s)" in the advanced tab
