Hi everyone! I have Fibaro Home Center 2, Fakro ARZ Z-wave roller shutters (3 of them) and Fakro ZRH12 Z-wave remote control. I want to be able to controll all 3 roller shutters with Fibaro Home Center 2. As far as I have understood firstly I need to add all 3 roller shutters to Fakro ZRH12 remote control, so they can be controlled by the remote. I am confused what to do next: - I tried adding Remote control ZRH12 to Home Center 2 using the following procedure: setting Home Center 2 into "Add new device" mode and setting the remote control to "Ln" mode (Adding as secondary controller). The remote successfuly added to Home Center 2 but I can only see it shown as the device with the "remote control" sign and it has no functionality (no buttons, no on/off, no up and down signs, nothing). If I try to use the phisical remote to control the shutters (as I did at the beginning) I cannot access them through it as well. It seems that all the roller shutters are deleted from the remote after adding the remote to Home Center 2. I also tried to add roller shutters to groups before adding remote to the Home Center 2 but still I can't access the roller shutters through Home Center 2 after adding the remote to it. Can somebody help me, what is the proper procedure of adding the roller shutters to Fibaro Home Center 2, and do I need that ZRH12 remote controll at all? Maybe it is possible to add the roller shutters directly to home center 2, without using remote control? Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!
Hello. I would need some help with connecting a Fakro VMZ Solar window sunshade to my Home Center 2. I possess with a Fakro ZRH12 remote, which should serve as a bridge to connect the VMZ Solar to the HC2, but I do not know how to integrate it. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you
Hi I have 8 x venetian blinders in my apartment controlled by Fibaro Remote Shutter 2 and HC2. No physical switches have been installed, so the only way I operate them is via app or scenes triggered elswhere from dimmer or relays on the walls - works ok but not very intuitive as I use double/triple clicks for predefined scenes. I would like to add some complex and comfortable solution to control them all them with a remote controller but in more intuitive way. I have found something like this below: 1. https://www.remotec.com.hk/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/ZRC-100-User-Manual_V1.57_20130430.pdf - looks like it support scenes, and multilevel devices but.. I see it too complicated to use it for example for just quick opening and closing a blinder etc. 2. http://www.z-wave.in/shop/smart-remotes/duwi-remote/ - looks much better in term of ergonomy. Will be much quicker to operate devices by my elder parents. 8 groups - with two buttons plus 3 extra scenes but I wonder if I will be able to operate lamellas with that one so that when I hold the button it will move the blinder and stops once released or just fully open/close when triggered no matter how long/short you pushed it. 3. https://www.fakro.pl/att/COMMON/offer/servis/user_manuals/ZWP10_FAKRO.pdf - has 4 groups and 2 channels each (A bit less intuitive than duwi) thus able to control 8 blinders in total - enough for me. Support multilevel (longer click, longer than 0.5s) and basic so I will be able to set lamellas angle as proffered. The only drawback I see, there is no possibility to run a scenes so no option to control let's say a group of blinders in whole room. Have anyone tried to test mentioned controllers, maybe can advise something else to try? I am interested in your experience and opinions. Thanks
