  1. Hello, i am controlling my garden lights with 2 scenes, one for sunset and one for sunrise. And it’s working perfectly I usually have lights dimmed at 30%. I would like to know if it’s possible to add a scene where, if there is a motion it will increase the lights by 30% or to put it to max level for 3 minutes and then back to the previous condition. Another scene could also work, if there is a motion lights up to 100%, and when if there is no motion for 3 minutes lights to 30%. in both cases I would like this scene to work only between 22:00 and 07:00. is it possible to make such a scene ? Thanks in advance !
  2. Hi. Just installed my second dimmer 2, for my kitchen halogen lights (2x 40watt). This is none on a two wire 220v electrical system (Europe). The setup process starts but it flickers all the time while the dimming tests are running. When the process is done I can not dim and the lights are constantly flickering when I turn it on trough the atom homey control. This is without including any dimmer or switch. I tried to include the old dimmer (400w turntable knob) and that did not seem to work well, so I dropped it from the setup. This is my current wiring setup. N and O shorted. N to the lights. The load connector to the L. Any tips would be appreciated!
  3. Hi I have a fibaro keyfob an a Fibaro Dimmer 2 250W FGD-212 I want to make a scene so that when I press the + button, at the keyfob the light will dim up depending on how long I hold the button and then oposite way. Is there anyone who has a for a solution for this issue? Thank you
  4. Has anyone ever connected a 0-10V controller to the RGBW module? Here's the problem that I am facing: I have connected a LED strip to the 0-10V controller which is connected to one of the channels of the RGBW module, say White. The dimming of the strips works great except one issue, it works in the opposite manner. It means that the LED strip goes to 100% brightness when I turn it OFF from the interface and when I turn it to maximum brightness the LED goes OFF. I have even checked the voltages from the RGBW module. It gives +10v when I turn it OFF from the interface and gives 0v when the slider is set to maximum brightness. I have got same results on other RGBW modules too. But, I was able to work around a solution on the HC2 using VD & LUA. But, I can't figure what I am doing wrong. Is there any way to fix this issue on HCL?

    Task: To control one channel on the RGBW controller/dimmer remotely through a double momentary switch (using S2) on the Dimmer 2. Solution, and some questions: Install the RGBW unit and its load, add it to the HC2 and assign its outputs. In my case, all 4 are "input/output" to control separate monocolor LED strips. Install the Dimmer 2 and its load and add it to the HC2 Select the master module of the Dimmer 2. Go to Advanced - Associations Select the 5th Association group ("Dimmer on S2"), since the RGBW we want to control is a dimmer, not an on/off function Check the box in the M column for the appropriate RGBW channel and click Save. First question: Group 5 is specifically for a multilevel switch, e.g. a dimmer. Why is there even an S box available for this group? Should it ever be used? Second question: There is a box for the HC2 at the top of the Associations list. What is the effect of ticking this box? Should the HC2 normally be ticked in the M column as well? Third question: I have seen a screen dump somewhere for a similar case. Here, the Dimmer itself was ticked in the associations list. I have avoided this, as it does not seem logical to include an association from a unit to itself. Any views? Fourth question: I assume that using Group 5 transfers all the normal switch commands: Single click for on/off, click and hold to dim up or down, double click for full light. Correct? Fifth question: In step 3 above, would it be possible (or even preferable) to select the slave unit used to operate the dimmer function instead? The reason I ask these questions, is that I have successfully followed the 6 steps above, with slight variations, and get variable results. Some units seem to work seamlessly, others are a little erratic (no response on single click, hard to control dimming function etc.). The 'slight variations' are in the way I did the associations, and are related to some of my questions. If anybody can provide suggested answers, I can focus on any remaining issues.
  6. hi guys, i'm planning to install DALI dimmable LEDs. I couldn't find a Z-wave enabled dimmer that supports the DALI Interface out of the box. Here are some images of DALI wireings (sorry for german screens) that i took from the hom.ee forum. Berker has an inwall dimmer that has DALI connections: would this converter be an option? http://www.nortronic.no/userfiles/file/Lysstyring/86468352-001-P.pdf thanks, kro
  7. Hi Fibaro experts, I have been using my fibaro setup for a couple of years with mixed success. Some things work quite well and some, well not so well. Feels at times as if the software really isn't tested before it is released which is unfortunate. Anyway I still like what it can do so trying to live with the problem it causes. However, this problem really annoys me and must be fixable somehow so hoping someone out there has a clever answer for it. One of the setups I have today: 1 fibaro dimmer 2 in the hallway 1 fibaro dimmer 2 in the kitchen The dimmer in the kitchen is associated with the hallway dimmer so that S2 is able to control the light in the hallway. This works fine as long as I always control it from the kitchen. So if I press once the hallway lights up and if i press another time the hallway goes dark, just as expected. However, If I press once on S2 in the kitchen and then switch it off in the hallway (with the wall switch i have there) the control in the kitchen looses sync why i need to press it twice to light it up again. So what happens is that the kitchen dimmer works fine as long as I don't use the wall switch connected to the hallway dimmer. If I do then the dimmer in the kitchen Case 1: 1. activate S2 in Kitchen > Hallway lights up. 2. activate S2 in kitchen again > Hallway goes dark Case 2: 1. activate S2 in Kitchen > Hallway lights up. 2. activate S1 in hallway > Hallway goes dark 3. activate S2 in kitchen again > Nothing happens (reason is because the kitchen dimmer tries to shut down the hallway light as it wasn't aware that i already killed the light via the hallway dimmer) 4. if i then press S2 in the kitchen again the light in the hallway lights up again. A small thing but oh so irritating. There must be something I am missing as I have the same functionality in my walk in closet and my bedroom. However, with the difference that i there have a dimmer 2 in the bedroom and a dimmer 1 in the walk in closet. For some reason these two devices sync perfectly and work seamlessly together. Anyone out there that has the same setup? Have you been able to solve it? /Peter
  8. Hi, When a device suchs as a dimmer, switch or Fibaro eye needs to be replaced it gets a different device number. so i have to change all the scene's where its in. is'nt there a way to replace the device without change the device ID? its quite a lot of work to change al scenes where its used in. If this aint possible, it might be an idee of adding it to one of the next firmware updates? Like a button: Replace device >> delete old device>> then include the device >>> and it keeps the same Device ID, so no changes need to be made in all the scene's it is in. Greetings TSN
  9. I'm trying to create a scene with Graphic blocks but it doesn't work out the way I want it to be. So I think I have to do this in LUA. The idea is the following: 1 - when entering a room when light must turn on at 50% brightness, after sunset, for 2 minutes. 2 - after these 2 minutes the light has to dim to 10% brightness during 10 minutes and then go off if no one has entered the room in this time. 3 - when someone enters the room within these 10 minutes the cycle has to start over again, so go back to 1 Can this still be done with Graphic blocks and how can I do this? Of do I have to do it in LUA?
  10. Hello All, Can someone provide a clear table with regards to Bypass<->Dimmers compatibility? I wonder, if I can I use Bypass ver 1 (FGB-001) with Dimmer FGD-212 or FGD-213 and the opposite- Bypass ver 2 (FGB-002) with Dimmer FGD-211? Thanks Maciej
  11. Hi I've got a Dimmer 2 with bypass and I have problems with the LED bulbs not dimming low enough. I've tried several bulbs, including some Philips that the distributor has tested himself and reported should work. When doing the calibration is selects a trailing edge dimming, which is in accordance with the bulb manufacturers instructions, but still the lowest setting is quite bright. I then tried to use parameter 30 to force the dimmer to use leading edge - and that makes a big difference! The LED bulbs can now be dimmed much lower. But why is this the case? And what are the dangers of using the leading edge mode?
  12. Hi there, are there any plans to extend the product offering for HomeKit? Especially the fire detector, the dimmer, maybe a switch to operate window blinds?
  13. Czy ktoś z Was ma bezproblemowo działającą instalację z Dimmer-em a za nim zasilacz triakowy do LED? Dostaję sporo informacji, że taki układ jest mało stabilny i zasilacze padają jeszcze na gwarancji. Niestety nie mam już możliwości dołożenia przewodów by do włącznika doprowadzić 12V z normalnego zasilacza i wówczas dać moduł RGBW. Potrzebuję taki zasilacz 12V 48W i 12V 18W. Ewentualnie pozostaje mi ustawić Dimmer ręcznie jako praca bez ściemniacza -> zwykły zasilacz LED -> manualny ściemniacz gdzieś ukryty bez współpracy z Fibaro. Z góry dziękuję za wszelkie sugestie
  14. Hello Everyone. I have what I consider a pretty typical setup. A nest and FIbaro lights and smokes. Pretty basic 10 circuits, nothing special happening here. While I think the Fibaro app is pretty decent, I wanted something I little more focused and polished for me. So, I have built a Android and IOS app which is modelled on the look and feel of the Savant app: https://www.savant.com/product/savant-app The app is fully working, just need a visual improvement - but it looks decent already. Its a side project - so dev will happen when i have time. I never planned on realising this in the wild, but a few people who have seen it love it - so thinking about submitting to relevant stores. Its boring features are: - Picks up weather and such like - Pick up NEST information (via Fibaro home centre or home centre lite) - Get all relevant devices from the system - Allows you to input your IP / user / pass (and saves) to allow connectivity to the home centre / lite (can use dyndns for those not on static IPs at home) - Runs via HTTP - so will work inside and outside the home. (use local IP on the internal only devices) The more interesting features are: - Allows you to (So much easier than Fibaro) create scenes on the app - in a lovely interface. - Will sync all settings of the scenes with either the Fibaro box, or Dropbox (or similar) - Might make it control the Nest also and other device types which fit within the focus of the app & alerts - Keeps the device alive if desired (prevent screen off) What im looking to do: - Get some flush wall mounts of ipad Minis / Andriod tabs made up (using 3D printers to keep costs low) - Have these as wall mounted control centres - keep the cost very low. - Allow people to re-use these old devices - rather than capture dust in a draw. Is there much appetite for such stuff in this community? If so ill look to finish it up and develop. Ill probably put it up as a paid app, mainly to cover costs and support / continious development. I will stress this is not a replacement for the Fibaro app - its just more focused and beautiful.
  15. Witajcie, Mam wielki problem z podłączeniem dimmera pod włącznik schodowy. Podłączyłem wszystko wg dokumentacji http://www.fibaro.com/sites/default/files/poradnik_instalatora/Przewodnik%20projektanta%20i%20instalatora%20systemu%20Fibar%20ver100%20beta.pdf (strona 15) i nie działa to tak jak należy. Działa tylko jeden włącznik (przy fibaro), a drugi jest zależny od jego położenia tzn. włącznik A przy fibaro musi być włączony, wtedy można sterować włącznikiem B. Wyłączając włącznik A nie działa całkowicie włącznik B. Pytanie : a) dlaczego na schemacie nie ma wejscia Sx, a są tylko S1 i S2 ? b) czy ważne jest przy którym właczniku montujemy fibaro c) czy w/w schemat dotyczy się włączników mono czy bi stabilnych ? d) czy można prosić o ew. zdjecie / schemat z rozwiązania podobnego problemu ? Dziękuję za pomoc ! Piotr
  16. Hi, I have been having trouble installing last dimmer in our flat in a circuit that has 3 momentary wall switches and one switch in a fuse box. I have a spare Fibaro Dimmer module but not sure how to install it. The approach that i am trying is to to install the module prio to the fuse box switch. I am attaching the photos the switch. Can someone point out how the dimmer module should be incorporated here? Let me know if there is any additional info that i should provide, Thanks in advance!
  17. Hi, I recently took out my HC2, reset and updated it, and added two Fibaro Dimmer 2's. The dimmers are functioning normally, but the interface shows these additional devices, with a "remote control" being visible and others being hidden. Can anyone clarify what these are please? EDIT: It is also showing me a firmware update available for both dimmers but they are for the hidden (8.0 and 4.0) devices and not the visible ones. Thanks! PG
  18. Hi, I want to use dimmer to controll device other then light (fan), but the interface does not allow me to change device classification. So when I turn or switch off lights in the room - the other device is also switched. As I remember there was an option to change dimmer's classification, but now it is gone. Any ideas? P.
  19. The dimmer worked perfectly for 8 months. Now it keeps changing the "32. On/Off mode" parameter set to "1 - on/off mode enabled (dimming is not possible)". When i set it back to "0 - on/off mode disabled (dimming is possible)". What could be the problem? And more importantly, how can i fix it?
  20. Drodzy instalatorzy, Mam zrobione (narazie testowo na kablach i oprawce) podłączenie 2 żyłowe (bez kabla N) z dimmerem i bypassem w/g schematu z pudełka. Zasilana jest żarówka LED z IKEI (https://www.ikea.com/pl/pl/catalog/products/10371203/). Wszystko działa z godnie z przewidywaniem, ale przy wyłączaniu żarówka robi takie śmieszne mrugnięcie: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YjoqVjcl0KHp80hS2 czy można jakoś na to zaradzić? Pozdrawiam Bartłomiej
  21. 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
  22. Hi Is there a way to set dimmer level memory on FGRGBWM-414 v2.5 I'm refering to the function of parameter 19 at FGD-212.
  23. Hi guys I have an issue with the dimmer 2 modules.When they are connected to mains power they work perfectly fine however when my backup generator kicks in they stop working and show a red light on the module. I have the exact same setup at a different site with a backup generator from the same company and it works perfectly well. Any ideas as to what could be the problem. Thank you
