Fibaro RGBW - looking for zwave commands protocol to create new custom programs

Recommended Posts

Hi,


The RGBW module has predefined programs that can be launched (Fireplace, Storm, Rainbow, Aurora, LPD).

But the module is also able to run custom programs defined by the user. Cf. the screenshot attached of the Home Center 2 screen that makes it possible to make its own programs.

 

Using a lot of Fibaro modules, but with a custom home-made controller "box" (a raspberry + zwave dongle + home made software), I wonder to be able to create custom 'programs' with my own colour sequences. As I'm also a software engineer, I'm not afraid to develop myself the support for such feature.

 

But for that, I would need first the 'protocol' for defining such color sequence (ie. the list of commands, payload, responses). And I cannot find anywhere such information. More precisely: for the moment I know that to run a predefined program, I can set parameter 72 with a value between 6 and 10 (6=Fireplace, 7=Storm, ...) ; it seems that values 1 to 5 are reserved to custom programs, but I don't know how to define first the content of such custom program, before requesting their execution.

 

 

Would it be possible to get some support from Fibaro about that ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @nouknouk,

 

You can do this through the REST API, through a POST of the

command. You can find the documentation in

docs. For an example of the structure of the json/program, you can do a GET command

. For me this gives the following output for program 1 (fireplace):

Hope this helps, Rene.

    Unfortunately, my case is a bit more complicated, as I don't have a Fibaro Home Center box. So those URi are not available for me. Instead, I built kind of custom home-made controller "box" (a raspberry + zwave dongle + home made software)

     

    That's why, I would need more information about the lower level data that is sent (what, how) at the level of the zwave protocol, to be able to send directly zwave commands to the Fibaro RGBW module.

    Ah, sorry, I did not read your post properly. As I saw the screenshot I expected you to have an HC2.

     

    No, can't help you with the lower level z-wave commands, unfortunately.

    Yes, unfortunately, the command to define a custom program is not documented anywhere.
