Motion sensor being added as Door Sensor

Question

Hello,

i have tried to ADD my new Z-Wave Motion Sensor FCM’s-001 but it will only be recognized as a Z-wave door sensor. 

I am using a new Smartthings Hub and no Home Center2. Any suggestions?

Hi @Peerf!

 

Where did you get handler for the device?

 

Did you try to add and remove the device again?

 

ST Hub assigns this handler by itself?

  • Hi

    i didn’t had any special handler. 

    I tried to add the device using different methods:

    a) scan for devices- and found my device as a door sensor

    B) scan under ‘search for new devices’ - ‘motion devices’ - selected then ‘Fibaro Motion Selector (uk)’ and then he result was the same (door sensor)

  • Here is an update(long answer):

    1. I requested an replacement by Amazon, and before I returned the old device I compared the devices and took a picture. External on the box it were same devices (FGMS-001 ZW5 v 3.2)
    2. The devices were not the exact version. See picture attached. The new is on the righ/bottom and white inside.
    3. I added the new device to my network and it is working as expected as a Fibaro Motion Sensor!

    In my view some spooky going on and I think Fibaro should be aware. For my part I can say I ordered the device as new and both the old and new device have been delivered directly from Amazon.

    Does the old (bad) one look like this one?

  • 95% sure it is the same device. The reason for not 100% is that the delivery didn’t include the holder and battery.

    Hi!

     

    @Peerf, the device on the top is NOT a FIBARO device. It's some ugly counterfeit. 

     

    If you could PM the link to this Amazon offer, I will submit it to verification.
