Several Momemtary switch
jgarbayo posted a question in Dimmer and BypassI´m replacin old X10 dimmers, all Dimers are connected to more than one momentary switch. The current wiring takes a single wire from the momentary switch to the dimmer. This wire closes the line (L) circuit. In order not to have to add one more wire to all of the installation, i tried to connect the cable that comes from the momentary switch directly to the S1 and everything works. The connection scheme is attached. As you can see it does not correspond to any of the options in the manual, before buying the rest of the Dimmer 2 modules, I would like you to confirm that this type of connection does not generate any problems.
Dimmers and Bypasses backward/forward compatibility
Mosskit posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHello 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
Inclusion Problems Dimmer 2
mabu posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHi, I am having a problem with the inclusion of my Dimmer 2 module (FGD-212 v3.5 ) into the Z-Wave>Me system, using a Razberry module (unfortunately, I don't use the Fibaro HC). Everytime I try to include the Dimmer, I get the error message "Inclusion takes a long time to start up.". I tried several inclusion menus: Add Device -> Fibaro -> Dimmer 2 v3.4 -> Start inclusion Add Device -> Add new Z-Wave Device and identify automatically -> Start inclusion Switching to the Expert-UI -> Network -> Control -> Start inclusion (Safe mode and normal mode) After activating the inclusion process in the Z-Wave interface, a red LED is flashing on the Razberry module. I then pressed the B-Button three times (within approximately 1 sec.). I also tried to include the dimmer using the switch. Unfortunately, none of the above described methods worked. I also did a reset on the dimmer - but it didn't change anything in the inclusion process. Both devices use the "EU-frequency". Any suggestions what can cause the inclusion problem?!
Circuit setup FGD-212 same as FGD-211 possible?
ypoosn posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHi, I found a circuit setup that exactly matches my wiring needs. It is meant for FGD-211. Can this setup also be used for FGD-212. You can find the picture below and also following this link: http://blog.smarthome.hlc24.de/tasterschaltung-stromstossschaltung-relaisschaltung-bzw-treppenlichtschaltung-mit-dem-fibaro-dimmer-im-sicherungskasten/ In my understanding fgd-211's output terminal "O" corresponds to the output terminal of fgd-212. best, ypoosn
[SOLVED]FGD-212 in HomeSeer3
racerfern posted a question in Dimmer and BypassI have a Fibaro micro dimmer that works but doesn't play nicely with HS3, Homeseer3. The icons do not display what is really going on and neither do the stats.I tried excluding and including, I tried re-scanning. Sometimes, the kW works for a few seconds as does the dimming level, then it resorts to junk. Any suggestions as to what to try? The FW version is 3.4 and I would like to update to 3.5 but I cannot find where to download the update. Any suggestions would be welcome.Oct-29 17:55:36 Z-Wave Device: Energy House Front Eaves Power Set to INVALID VALUEOct-29 17:55:36 Z-Wave Warning In converting Z-wave data bytes to a value, Size is reported as 2, but length is 1 and is=02Oct-29 17:55:36 Z-Wave Device: Energy House Front Eaves Power Set to 51.3 (W)Oct-29 17:55:31 Z-Wave Device: Lighting House Front Eaves Lighting Set to INVALID VALUEOct-29 17:55:31 Z-Wave Warning Probable Invalid (MULTILEVEL) Frame Received from Node 27 = 26-03Oct-29 17:55:31 Z-Wave Device: Lighting House Front Eaves Lighting Set to INVALID VALUEOct-29 17:55:31 Z-Wave Warning Probable Invalid (MULTILEVEL) Frame Received from Node 27 = 26-03
[SOLVED]FGD-212 Dimmer - Fade On/Off
Technomorph posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHi, I am new to HA and Fibaro. I have installed a FGD-212 Dimmer 2 module as a proof of concept. It is controlled via Home Assistant and OpenZWave. The module is wired using 3-wire connection and a toggle switch. Everything is working well so far. When the light is turned on/off it fades to the target max/min brightness % respectively. Is there a way for the light to go immediately to the min/max target brightness without fading? I have experimented with some of the advanced parameters, but cannot get this to work. I suspect it's possible that OpenZWave may not not be applying settings correctly, however I would be grateful for any suggestions. Cheers, TM.

Associations with FGD-212 doesn't work
Guest posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, I'm trying to get associations to work between two FGD-212 modules. S2 on Module1 should control Module2 According to docs Module2 should be configured in Association Group 4 and 5 of Module1. However I can't get it to work. Both modules are within 2 meters range. One thing I noticed when configuring associations was that the ID that is displayed after "To be set" is not the same ID as Module2. Should the "to be set" ID match the device ID of the module I want to control? Or is this some other ID? Maybe my device database is screwed...Can anyone verify in their HC2 if the device ID should match the real device ID? Please have a look at the attached screenshots, showing the "To be set" ID and the actual ID of the module I'm trying to control. Thanks Andreas
Fibaro Dimmer 2 problem - not dimming with switch
OleKristianK posted a question in Dimmer and BypassI am using the Fibaro Dimmer 2 in several places around the house, and have had no problem with it until now. I replaced an Elko GLE 315 dimmer with a Fibaro Dimmer 2. My problem is that dimming with the S1 connected momentary switch does not work. When off, clicking once results in lights going to 100% with a very slow start. Clicking and holding to dim down does nothing while holding, when releasing the lights seamingly goes off, but HC2 reports dimming level around 10%. The same happens with just one click. I am unable to dim the lights to any level with the switch, but doing this through HC2 works just fine. This is the setup of the dimmer and load: Electric system: European 220v/50Hz 2-wire system Connected load: Two SLV ceiling lights. Each light has an electronic soft start trafo and two halogen QRB 111 G53 12v lamps. https://www.slv.com/en-de/luminaires-lamps/kalu-wall-and-ceiling-light-double-headed-qr111-round-brushed-aluminium-max-100-w-147266.pdf I think the problem might be releated to the soft start function of the two electronic trafos. I sometimes get "no load"-error or "burnt out bulb detection error" in HC2. I am guessing that the soft starts creates a pulse of some kind that the dimmer detects. I have tried several of the advanced parameters including: 14: Auto-calibration status set to 0 15: Burned out bulb detection set to 0 - disabled 19: Forced dimming level - x% this does nothing 32: on-off mode set to 0 - dimming is possible 34: soft start set to 0 - no soft start 35: Auto calibration after power on set to 0 - no auto calibration 40: reaction to general purpose alarm set to 0 - no reaction 45: overload alarm report set to 0 - no reaction 46: load error set to 0 - no reaction 47: overcurrent alarm report set to 0 - no reaction 48: surge alarm report set to 0 - no reaction Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Sync LED dimming with RGBW and Dimmer 2 association
flux_capacitor posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHi, Is there a way to associate a RGBW controller (FGRGB-101) as a master, with a Dimmer 2 module (FGD-212) as a slave, either as a Z-Wave direct association or with a LUA script on the main controller? My goal is to dim LEDs connected to 110-240V AC, with a distant low voltage RGBW module. LEDs are connected to a Dimmer 2 module. 30 feet away, a 12V DC RGBW controller interprets the variable output of an analog sensor. I'd like to dim the distant LEDs accordingly to the level the RGBW module would set if it was directly connected to equivalent 12V DC LEDs. In other words, can the dimming level information of an RGBW controller be passed to a Dimmer 2? I know that two RGBW modules can be synchronised, but I don't know if an RGBW module and a Dimmer 2 module can be synchronised.
FGD-212 not controllable - Smartthings Hub 2
Ciaran posted a question in Dimmer and BypassHi, I have installed three (3) Fibaro Dimmer 2 (FGD-212) switches in my home. Number 1 dimmer is in my front room Number 2 dimmer is in my hall (with immediate <1 Meter proximity to dimmer 1) Number 3 dimmer is in my master bedroom (top of stairs) ~15 Meters away from the hub controller I am using a Smartthings Hub 2 controller. All devices have been found/discovered and are paired to my Smartthings hub and visible on my Smart phone app. All devices operate (on/off/dim) as expected using the physical switches connected to the dimmers, so they are all fully functioning as expected. I can connect to and control dimmer 1 from my smart phone via the Smartthings app and I have full range of control and dimming as expected. I CANNOT control dimmers 2 & 3 at all via the Smartthings app (they are simply unresponsive to any control commands sent to them - e.g. on/off command or dimming level commands). They are all installed (wired) identically in line with the first dimmer (1). Would you know why the dimmers (2 & 3) are not responding? Would you be able to share some root cause analysis steps with me to help me resolve this? Note: This is not a range issue as I have physically moved the Smartthings Hub 2 to be in range (beside) each of the installed Fibaro dimmers. Thanks Ciaran
UK 2-wire on/off light switch - which module?
t-fibaro posted a topic in FIBARO ProductsHello I am looking to automate some light switches and was initially intending to use a Fibaro FGS-222 but on reading about them found that this was not possible due to 3-wire requirement, mine are 2-wire. I have already installed and got working a couple of FGD-212 Dimmer 2 modules but wasn't thinking to use those (dimmer not really required), but they are 2-wire capable, so it does appear to be an option. Question is, is this the best/only option for just switching lights on/off. One advantage of the FGD-212 is that I will also get power metering as well, so not all bad if I go down this route. Thoughts appreciated. Regards
Fibaro FGD-212 and FGS-222 association (I don't get it)
pystein posted a question in Dimmer and BypassUsually I don't consider myself stupid, and I have meddled with z-wave for some time, but the topic of association is beyond me. At least when trying to make the S2 button on a Dimmer 2 (FGD-212) turn on and off one or both of the relays in the FGS-222. In the association panel of the dimmer on HC2 (latest firmware) I am presented with Endpoint 0 and Endpoint 2, the meaning of which I don't get either by Googling or by reading the manuals. Under Endpoint 0 there are five groups, Endpoint 1 has three. Which to use, I wonder? To make it short, what am I to do to get the desired result? I have tried randomly, and sometimes the relay miraculously switches, but then trying again it doesn't react at all. UPDATE: trying the wall switch (S2) once more I have some more success if I hold the button a little longer, but it is still unreliable and hardly wife and kids friendly. As you can see in the following screenshot, I tried Group 4 in Endpoint 0, Single Channel Assosiation, with the drawback that both relays are then chosen automatically (although confusingly only one of them actually responds to the button press, occasionally....) Any hints? Thanks in advance! Øystein
