Hi guys, I have the following issue when I try to obtain Fibaro ID: 1. After registering for Fibaro ID, I don't see my HCL in the list. When I try to register my HCL, the system says it has been already registered; 2. Maybe some time ago I had registered my HCL, but I neither find the e-mail and the password or delete my previous HCL registration. The system offers to use my old pass, but it is a stupid loop!!!!!!! 3. I sent an e-mail to the Fibaro support but have no reply. Please advice how to proceed? Best regards Nick
I would like to request the following functionality (this applies probably mainly to the Fibaro Cloud, but should manifest itself mainly in a mobile app). The problem: AFAIK there is no way to be notified if the HC/HC2 is no longer available in the internet. And this is very important, because this can mean a number of bad things: 1. The power is down 2. The internet connection is lost 3. There is a burglary and someone disabled the system 4. Many more... The solution: Fibaro Cloud servers should be able to provide (probably upon request) a simple monitoring functionality of the HC/HC2 centrals (simple "is alive?" call, probably invoked by the HC/HC2). If the "is alives" are repeatedly not received (some simple rules decreasing the rate of false notifications couldapply), the user (administrator?) should get a push notification and optionally an email. Thanks in advance!
Has anyone ever found a alarm clock on their phone which actually syncs it to the cloud so that you can read from an api? The thing is, i never know when i need to wake up, and my gf has shifts too. If you want to turn on the heat based on when the alarm clock goes off, you need a way to get the current alarms from a phone. It would greatly help with all those "make me coffee" idea's too in the morning. Just set your alarm and the rest of the house will follow.
Right so the way i comprahend the Fibaro ID, it is being (in part) done to allow storage of backup into the cloud from which you could (theoretically) download it. That sounds very much like HCL solution so my inquiery is: will this work for HC2 aswell or will there be independent solution for them and (potenciall HC3)? Because HC2 has backups on (PAIRED WITH UNIT!!!) flash drive, it would make sense to either have separate method or both personal backup choice for the more expenssive option. From my participation and reading of various backup related threads i understand that there was never anny proper backup solution (how the hell did you people survive for this long on Fibaro units ill never know). I've learned: backup on own USB drive isimpossible, clonning of USB drive is not recommanded/potencially hazardous (i assume if Fib finds out about it but i can never be sure), Up untill we first caught glimpse of ID.Cloud.Fibaro . com there was not even decent enough rummor on sensible backup and one has to allways send their damaged HC unit to Poland no matter where you are from (well there is German company that dose something simillar, but A) payed service and B) its Neigbouring nation, i rather send it to makers than some company few hundreds of KM West of Fibaro). Right my questions are : I. Assuming that the ID cloud dose infact bring backup (wich could end up on same pile as HCL's batt pack, GSM module if something goes bad so untill its released i will assume its just a theory) into your account, will this service extend into HC2, II. will this service be free, III. will this service allow me to have 2 units (one on standby incase annything goes wrong) wherein the secondary unit will be able to have primary unit's data coppied into itselve in order to remove anny waiting time for mail (basically have secondary unit become clone in terms of Z-Wave network data, scenes, settings etc.). You know will this backup be actuall backup and not some sort of image? I am sortof hopefull towards the backup but i all hinges on quite a complex proposition not everyone is happy with, and some users will keep demmanding backup to whatever they choose to backup into so thats going to be nice. I am glad Fibaro seems to at least make moves towards creating some sort of backup as oposed to just ignore the whole thing for years, hopefully it will continue the trend of improving (at least slowly) its products. Oh and opinions are wellcome here, come tell me how wrong is Cloud and why woudl your prefered system of backup be better, i am curious to see what points there are for other popular solutions.
