I installed a Danalock device and tried to use it with Fibaro's template on 4.104. I note one error and one omission. The error relates to the way in which the Fibaro device template handles the rotation settings. The Danalock Z-wave function sets the turn of the locking mechanism in increments of 10 degrees up to a maximum of 1,000 degrees (over 2.7 times round). As such, one can choose between 1 to 100 and that figure is multiplied by 10 to set the turn. A setting of 2 will rotate the device by 20 degrees and a setting of 20 will turn the device by 200 degrees. This feature is important when setting up the lock, particularly as the settings from Fibaro are sent to, and set, the device. The setting in Fibaro has been set to increment the number by a factor 10 only and therefore, the minimum turn is 100 degrees (setting of 10 in Parameter 4) as the factor of 10 has been applied to both the unit increment and the slider setting, meaning a 10x10 (100) increment possibility only. TO work correctly, it should be able to increment where each unit is 1 (representing 10 degrees) up to 100 (representing 1,000 degrees). Can this be fixed for the next update as Parameter 4 also does not allow adjustment of the figure by directly typing into the right hand side. The other aspect of the Danalock is that its turning capability allows for the use of "keywind" or "keyturn" multilocks where, rather than pulling handles up, or pushing them down, to engage the additional security features, the additional bolts, hooks and rollers of multipoint doors can be engaged/opened by the continual turning of the key. This enables true remote locking and unlocking, a feature, I hear, the new Yale keyfree lock coming out in January will not have. With the keywind feature, the Danalock app provides an additional setting of a blue button when the door is unlocked (security bolts etc disengaged) that enables the additional turns required to actually open (unlatch) the door and facilitate handsfree entry. Without this, one would still require to use the key to disengage the latch from the outside. Could the extra button be added to trigger the unlatch? The icons for the Danalock are nice and representative though and I look forward to be ing able to install it properly. Please let me know if further explanation required and I hope this can be updated soon. Thank You
