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
I have been wondering. Which remote to use as remote controller with Fibaro. And i do not mean Z-Wave stuff, like Swipe, Keyfobs, ... I know there is Harmony, but i do know it very little. But is there any other "smart" remote? Also i don't mean remote control if i integrate Fibaro under other systems, like Control4, Crestron or RTI. I found that interesting: https://sevenhugs.com/ @I.Srodka, do you have some info about sevenhugs remote?
I have 3 Fibaro Universal Binary Sensors (FUBS) inside outdoor PIR's. They do their work most of the time but once in a while they "freeze" in breach mode. This is seen as the device panel in HC2 displays a "red man in motion" instead of the steady man. If a scene is based on the FUBS it will run all the time. The only way I have found to resolve the situation is to do a "soft reconfigure device" Problem 1 1a - why does a "freeze" happen? 1b-is there any other way to solve the situation? Problem 2 When I did this some days ago I found some strange things, the device was suddenly excluded from the polling que (stated in the device interface) and there was some new unassigned devices each belonging to the FUBS!! This device is displayed as a remote controller!?!? 2a - why was the device excluded from global polling que? 2b - what the heck is the new sub devices displyed as a remote controller? Running HC2 with 4.13 and the FUBS have updated firm ware.
