Hi All, I'm having some issues when creating a virtual device in Home Centre using a Global Cache iTach Flex with the Tri cable to 3 devices, projector in port 1, amplifier in port 2 and receiver in port 3. In the Global Cache learning software when I learn in the correct signal and then send it from there to test it works perfectly. Once I add them into Home Centre only the projector in port 1 is working correctly and ports 2 and 3 are completely unresponsive. I have added the correct bit to the end of the string for Fibaro on all of them and I have made sure that when learning the string the correct connector number is selected. Has anyone else had success in making this work? There should be no issues with the Global Cache as its working fine on their software so it is obviously able to send it to the correct devices, the Fibaro just isn't able to replicate that.
After having to purchase a new HC2 (as I tried to create rackmount brackets for my old one, screwed them into the side of my old HC2 and broke a component of (partially) one of the circuit boards! DUH! Can this be repaired??), I am now trying to walk through the HC Wizard. Step 1 (Firmware upgrade) was successful Step 2 - Update Account (Given credentials will replace the default login and password for local admin account) fails to email me a verification code (no spam being received, no nothing! Any ideas? Many thanks!
Right so the way i comprahend the Fibaro ID, it is being (in part) done to allow storage of backup into the cloud from which you could (theoretically) download it. That sounds very much like HCL solution so my inquiery is: will this work for HC2 aswell or will there be independent solution for them and (potenciall HC3)? Because HC2 has backups on (PAIRED WITH UNIT!!!) flash drive, it would make sense to either have separate method or both personal backup choice for the more expenssive option. From my participation and reading of various backup related threads i understand that there was never anny proper backup solution (how the hell did you people survive for this long on Fibaro units ill never know). I've learned: backup on own USB drive isimpossible, clonning of USB drive is not recommanded/potencially hazardous (i assume if Fib finds out about it but i can never be sure), Up untill we first caught glimpse of ID.Cloud.Fibaro . com there was not even decent enough rummor on sensible backup and one has to allways send their damaged HC unit to Poland no matter where you are from (well there is German company that dose something simillar, but A) payed service and B) its Neigbouring nation, i rather send it to makers than some company few hundreds of KM West of Fibaro). Right my questions are : I. Assuming that the ID cloud dose infact bring backup (wich could end up on same pile as HCL's batt pack, GSM module if something goes bad so untill its released i will assume its just a theory) into your account, will this service extend into HC2, II. will this service be free, III. will this service allow me to have 2 units (one on standby incase annything goes wrong) wherein the secondary unit will be able to have primary unit's data coppied into itselve in order to remove anny waiting time for mail (basically have secondary unit become clone in terms of Z-Wave network data, scenes, settings etc.). You know will this backup be actuall backup and not some sort of image? I am sortof hopefull towards the backup but i all hinges on quite a complex proposition not everyone is happy with, and some users will keep demmanding backup to whatever they choose to backup into so thats going to be nice. I am glad Fibaro seems to at least make moves towards creating some sort of backup as oposed to just ignore the whole thing for years, hopefully it will continue the trend of improving (at least slowly) its products. Oh and opinions are wellcome here, come tell me how wrong is Cloud and why woudl your prefered system of backup be better, i am curious to see what points there are for other popular solutions.
Hi, I am using the Double Relay to control non-dimmable ceiling lights. It's easier to use the double relay since you can control two circuits with just one module. But a great inconvenience occurs when using the Fibaro Mobile App. The relays are all listed under "EQUIPMENT" category. Is there any way of selecting which category the modules show up in? I would love to see certain Relays in the "LIGHTING" category. Is there anyway of doing this? Thanks.
