Fibaro door/window sensor configured as not battery operated


Recommended Posts



last week I installed an unused Fibaro door/windows sensor v2.1 I had lying around (still packed). It's added with a DS18B20 temperature sensor. My controller is a HC2 with firmware 3.590, and has 3 more sensors installed (same version 2.1 and with DS18B20) since 2013 (all 4 bought together)


After a couple of include/exclude procedures, I managed to get it "working", at least getting temperature and showing breach/safe state. I can also arm and disarm the sensor. But there is not battery status icon and I can't change any of the parameters of the template (for instance, change parameter 2 from ON to OFF). If I try it, I get a "transfer failed" error.


If I click on the wrench icon, on the Advanced tab, the only different configuration from other sensors is that the "Wake up interval (s)" and the "Notify when battery low via e-mail" parameters are missing (see attached images for comparison).


Accesing the JSON through the API (

) I can see that there's a parameter called "isBatteryOperated" with the value "0", but all other door sensors have value "1".


I've also tried resetting the sensor with no success


Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
