Adding Fakro ZWP10 remote to HCL

Question

Hi everyone! I am going crazy from this, any help will be appreciated - I have a couple Fakro motorized blinds on my skylights and they come with their own remote that allows you to control them and also choose an automatic mode where they close based on sunlight levels. 

 

Fakro support told me that to keep this functionality after including them in the Fibaro system, I need to add the ZWP10 remote as a secondary and then associate it with the blinds. The trouble is:

 

a) adding the remote fails on 4/5 attempts with "learning mode error"

b) even if the remote is added without an error, it says it does not allow associations and tells me to reconfigure it

c) reconfiguration gets stuck forever "waiting for battery device wakeup" (the manual for the remote does not tell you if it has a dedicated wakeup button, pressing any button including the IN/EX button does nothing)

 

How to fix this? I am amazed that both these companies being Polish, the products work so poorly together - surely I am not the only one trying this. Anyone succeeded?

 

Thanks!

  • If my understanding is correct, you need to add the Fakro Remote as a secondary controller, not as a remote. This you can't do with the HC Lite, since it does not support acting as a primary. I ordered the HC 2 and will test it with it, it should arrive some time next week. Hopefully that will solve it and I will be able to use both.
