Control Qubino dimmer from Fibaro Dimmer





Since the Qubino dimmers are supposedly better in handling LED bulbs, but the Fibaro dimmer allows me to have 2 buttons with sceneactivation, I wanted the best of both worlds.


I connected two momentary switches to the fibaro dimmer.

I attached the LED bulb to the Qubino dimmers.


I added the Qubino to Association Group 2 on the fibaro dimmer.


When the bulb is connected to the fibaro, it lightens up slowly, so I have time to release the button at the wanted dimming level.

When it's attached to the qubino, and I try to control it from the fibaro, the light goes up too quick, so I don't have time to choose anything between off and on.

I already changed value 66 (dimming time) on the qubino to 60s, but this doesn't seem to change anything.


Is there something I can change on the fibaro side?


2nd question. Is the qubino really better? I had to change the maximum dimming value to 45, as there was no difference between this value and max value.

On the fibaro with the bypass attached it behaves exactly the same as on the qubino with the max dimming value.

Both have no flicker, and great dimmable range. I'm using a Philips 6W dimmable led bulb.


thanks for reading,

I have the same problem.

Wit this association, the qubino can only be turned on and off, not dimmed. (test it by setting the qubino to 50% with your phone, then try to put it to 100% with the fibaro dimmer, (it will stay at 50%)

the other proble I have is that the qubino is not reporting the changed value to the HC2 when operated trough the fibaro dimmer, only when operated locally.

I wrote a small code with valuesensor to adapt the hc2 display when valuesensor changes but it's one more scene...

it's also possible to change the polling to have a faster report, but the network is more loaded...


If someone has a solution (I'm still in V 3.6)

sorry, made more tests and you are right, the dimming works but it's very fast and the verry difficult to adjust


please see here for my configuration (qubino parameters for hc2)
