  1. Hi all! I have a problem with the battery reading of door/window sensor 2 in HC3L (5.120.10) Once I installed the sensor, in dashboard the battery was at 50%. After one week, the battery level was 0% (and that is strange). So I replaced it. For 1-2 secs the battery indicator was 100%....then it falled to 0%. I tried with another battery and with another door/window sensor 2....but the results is the same. Despite this, the sensor is working and it correctly notify me when the door is open and closed. Why this behaviour in battery reading? Is there a bug in my HC3L current firmware version?
  2. Hello, I am looking for some our side door sensor for window blind because currently my window blind doesn't send information about state. I want to use smart implant and reed switch but I can't find any small solution for that. Can you recommend some solution?
  3. Hello, I'am recently trying to make a wireless temperature sensor for the swimming pool. on the Forum I found examples with an old doorsensor FGK-101, but these sensors are EOL and not for sale. does somebody know another way to attach a Fibaro Temperature sensor DS18B20WTP to HC2. thanks in advance.
  4. I have installed new Neo Coolcam doorsensor in my HC2 controller. and is showd in the controller. This working fine, but when i look in the Hc2 App Iphone and Ipad the doorsensor is not showed. Does anyone know why this is not showed and have a solution for this. Thanks in advance.
  5. Is it possible to make Philips Hue lights blink in i.e. red in a scene, i.e. if a variable changes. The idea is something like this: https://youtu.be/53Vu0riatMQ?t=102 , when a door-sensor is not safe, a variable changes, and sets the alarm with blinking lights. When you change the variable back to safe, the alarm stops(a VD that changes a variable is explained several places). I was thinking of a door-sensor on a baby gate. I already have Philips Hue lights in that room and rooms nearby.
  6. Here's an example on how you can make your mousetrap a "Smart mousetrap" and receive a message when it's activated. Shopping list: - Mouse Trap from Giljotti or similar. - Fibaro door sensor - Normal ink pen / only the small spring/feather. - A little glue type epoxy or hot-melt adhesive - Small cable ties - Cable with 2 or 4 cores depending on whether you want one or more series-connected to the same sensor. I have chosen to have some of one only and some of two connected. Because the traps are connected in series will get the signal if one of them slams, but not the additional signal if the second bang. So it loses some functionality to add more then one on each sensor. Therefore i prefere one trap on each sensor. 1. Start by including door sensor to your system. Hold TMP button on the back while you press 3 times quickly the internal tmp button (remove the cover). 2. Take a 1.5-2m cable (optional) and tighten as shown. 3. Sacrificing an ink pen that you do not need, we need only spring . - Cut the spring on the middle with a wire cutter. - Glue the spring as illustrated. I used 2-comp epoxy. But certainly goes equally well with hot melt adhesive. Ensure the spring falls below bang spring and that it has contacted when the trap is charged. Let dry 4. Now pull one wire and attach the pen spring, as far down as you can so we can retain the spring effect. 5. Remove the bang spring (just to loosen from the guillotine, then pull up) 6. Put the second conductor in the hole where the spring is seated and then reinsert the spring and attach it to the guillotine. 7. Insert the leaders in door sensor on binary input as shown. 8. The trap is now a "smart trap" In the Gateway needs to the put some kind of activity when the trap is slapped. In Fibaro / HC2 can be done as follows 1. Make sure your newly added door sensor device is properly positioned in the room / section. (so you have a clean and neat interface). 2. Call it something like: Mouse Trap crawl 3. Go to the Panels / Message panel. Create New Message type: Subject: Mousetrap crawl, message: Mousetrap crawl fired. SAVE. 4. Go to Scenes and create a new scene. 4.1 Create the following (see picture at the bottom). - If the unit "Mousetrap crawl" == violated Then, - - Send message / Pusch note "Mousetrap crawl" Save CLEAR! Now you get a message when there is a mouse and you need to run and control the whole time. Charge the mousetrap with Mars / Twixx or something similar with a chocolate / cola that are tough and long lasting. The cheese is just a myth .
  7. Is there a way to increase the range of a Fibaro door sensor? Other z-wave (non-battery) devices re-transmit signals, but not battery operated devices? I'd like to monitor my garage door, but it's too far away.
