The Button and Google home
tdinham posted a question in The ButtonHi I have a Fibaro button and I would like to use it with Google Home. In my Google home app I go to the "works with Google" section in Google Home, I find "Fibaro smart home" and select it. I am prompted for my username and password which I enter. A small banner opens with a blue wiring circle - "Linking your Fibaro smart home account". After a little while, another box opens with text - Could not reach your FIBARO Smart home. Please try later. The link fails, I have tested my username and password - all correct, and I have tried on different days and different mobile phones. Please can anyone assist. Can The Button work with Google Home and Google Assistant? Regards and thanks for any help in solving this problem Terry

Hello everyone! I'm working on solution that should bring easier sharing and installation of scenes and virtual devices for users. What I'm missing is a way how to change button and label 'Name' or 'caption' using LUA code and/or REST API. See picture bellow: @T.Konopka, Please if you know answer to this question can you share it, or of it is not possible with latest version 4.120 can this be added to the todo list for some future release? Really appreciate your help! Sincerely Sankotronic EDIT This is solution to the question provided by @A.Socha: --id of VD id = 105 --contecting to HC2 to get VD who you want modify local HC2 = Net.FHttp("127.0.0.1", 11111) payload = "/api/virtualDevices/" .. id response, status, errorCode = HC2:GET(payload) if tonumber(errorCode) == 0 and tonumber(status) == 200 and response ~= nil and response ~= "" then jsonTable = json.decode(response) --changening caption jsonTable.properties.rows.elements.caption="testazz" --sending it back local response, status, errorCode = HC2:PUT(payload, json.encode(jsonTable)) end After changing label, slider or button caption please refresh HC web GUI interface page and do Refresh Network data on mobile devices to make change visible!

QuickApp does not allow interrupts
hubert.pelletier posted a topic in Tutorials and GuidesFor watering our plants I develop a Virtual Device with HC2 using control buttons to open a valve during 15, 30, 45 and 60sec. I also had a emergency STOP button to close the valve immediately within the same VD. When I reproduce the same with HC3, it is not possible to call the STOP button (interrupt) untill the watering in progress is not completed. Any help? (and not entionning those buttons are not displayed on the portable Android/IOS...)
[Feature request] Colored Virtual Devices Buttons
Stiven posted a topic in SuggestionsThe title says it all. It would be nice if we could choose the color of the virtual device button so it is easier to the eye and change the color of the text inside. Thank you!

Push Notifications for Button...
JMLarsen posted a topic in FIBARO HomeKitHi there, just bought a Homekit enabled Button to use as a panic button for an elderly person. I use an Apple TV 4 as the hub. The intention was to make a single click on the button send a push notification to my iPhone (and perhaps combine it with some Hue light actions). However, as far as I can see, there is no way to enable notifications without a Fibaro Center 2 or Lite. Can this be right or am I missing something? Best wishes J. ADDITION: I should mention that this ability is part of the advertisement for the Button: https://www.fibaro.com/en/products/the-button/

bosadnik posted a question in Sceny i InterfejsCześć, Chciałem ustawić asocjacje button2x -> turnOn w 3ciej grupie asocjacyjnej. Ustawiłem parametry (wydaje mi się że wszystkie prawidłowo) Dodałem światła do 3ciej grupy Wzbudziłem butona do transferu (4x) i.. nie działa - czy coś robię źle? zaznaczam że taka sama sekwencja wystarczyła żeby skonfigurować asocjacje dla drugiej grupy - działa bez zarzuty. Co może być nie tak? Pozdrawiam Bartek
'Dławienie' się buttonów
bosadnik posted a question in Sceny i InterfejsDrodzy Instalatorzy, Mam taki problem: button steruje światłem (1x -> oposite state - zrobione przez 'magic scene') - niemniej jednak raz na jakiś czas dzieje się tak że to przełączanie strasznie muli, po kilku przełączeniach zaczyna reagować normalnie. Załączam zrzut z panelu zdarzeń gdzie widać z jakim opóźnieniem reaguje światło. Może ktoś ma pomysł co może być przyczyną i jak to poprawić?
Button isn't working - Always have to wake-up device!
samuel posted a question in The ButtonMost of the time (more always then most of the time) I have to wake up my button (4 clicks) to be able to get the button to work and even then my button isn't always working when I click ones or twice, to switch on/off my light. How can this be resolved? It's starting to get annoying when I can't use it properly.
fuuss posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceI don't know if this is working as designed or a bug I wanted to group a button to a dimmer . I went into the advanced configuration and added the dimmer to the Switch in the Device grouping. After saving the dimmer disappear , at this point i just can switch the lamp on or off dimming is not possible anymore as I can only push the button
[SOLVED]Delete Reaction Unavailable
alandee posted a question in The ButtonHi I can't delete a "reaction" I should have just programmed it as I was going to but thought, heck, why not try out this new fangled reaction idea .. thought it was simple and useful, until I tried to delete one .. Now i have eventually, but it's not very intuitive .. or may be I'm not :). I click the 'x' to delete, the popup box says are you sure ? and the only responsive button on the popup box is no .. if i click yes, nothing happens, and the box remains. So I have to click yes, then no then click the button 4x to wake it up then refresh the browser page The item does remove the 'reaction' once it is 4x clicked to wake it up again .. is this by design ? Cheers, al.
Octan nodon doesn't sync
Raulprivate posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, I'm trying to create associations with a remote control that I have (an octan nodon remote control). The remote was already configured before I started working here. I'm seeing a warning message (see screenshot attached) asking to change battery. However, I checked the battery levels by pressing • and + and it's showing Green (>50% battery according to the manual). Has anyone encountered this issue? any ideas why this is happening? Thanks a lot! Regards, Raul.

[SOLVED]Program button to interrupt scene or launch another one
Raulprivate posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, Is it possible to interrupt a scene when a button is pushed? Either to interrupt it or launch another scene. I already have remote control with 4 buttons but I'd like to also buy an emergency button that would terminate the scene that is running. Could you please give me a hand with this or refer me to any other open topic related to this? Thanks a lot! Raul.
The Button needs to be woken up before it works every morning
RobvT posted a question in Home Center LiteAfter a good night sleep I go downstairs and push "The Button" so all my lights switch on. But I need to wake up the device with my phone app before it works. That's not why I bought a Button (-; It's so my wife doesn't have to get her phone to get the lights on in the living room. I did see a script for the HC2 that wakes up dead nodes every 15 minutes. Is there something like that for the HCL?
vanni177 posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, is there a way to have 2 buttons for VD's on the UI? Two buttons like a regular light (on/off). any suggestion are welcome
RohitNz posted a question in FIBARO MobileI am making up an occupancy panel. So that the automation for a particular room only works if the occupant is at home. If they are away for a while, they will mark themselves absent and the automation should stop. This is to save power on heating, towel rails, exhaust, led lighting etc. I have made up a virtual button, image attached. This sets some predefined variables that I can use in scenes. What I really wanted was a latching button. I couldn't do that. Then I tried to change the colour of the button - no dice. I couldn't change the button caption either. So, finally I have a label changing to indicate whether the person is here or away. It is not satisfactory. Its too error prone, someone could press it accidentally. Its not obvious (without colours) what the current status is. Am I able to do any of the following dynamically with lua - Make the button latching (I can then have two buttons labelled here and away) Change the colour of the button Change the caption of the button Hide the button Add a pin pad on press Add a confirmation on press

Press VD button from within the VD

If Yes, could someone please provide me with some sample code? Thanks, FJW.

Roller Shutter and Button
jrvb posted a question in Roller Shutter 2In one room in my house I have installed two rollershutter2's. They have exactly the same configuration settings (except id of course ). Previous week, I bought the Fibaro button. Questions/issues (1) does the standard button-wizard create assosciaton? I think it doesn't do it. Association seems to be the best way of connecting. Does it? (2) it's not possible to operate one of the rollershutters via Fibaro button. Neither individually, nor in a group (all shuitters). How to manage both of the rollershutters via button? standaard wizard or association? What can be the problem (and suggestion) for the issue that the second rollershutter won't operate via button?
