Because of lack of Z-Wave RFID Readers: Own solution with Fibaro Smart Implant


Recommended Posts

I had two Zipato RFID Readers. Both died nearly at the same time :(

So there is no other RFID Reader with Z-Wave support available. Because of this I had to use a "normal" one and connect it to my HC2.

One disadvantage is that I won't know which PIN code or which RFID has been used during last login!

 

Here is my description how I did set it up. Maybe others will need this information too or somebody else has some improvements (mostly according the Fibaro Smart Plant).

I am pretty sure that @petergebruers has some improvements for me ;)

I did search in the web for any solutions but could not find anything useful. Most persons did ask how to wire it properly and did not come up with a working solution or some others explained that it is working...but not how why have done it.

 

So what is needed:

I am using the new Fibaro Smart Plant FGBS-222, any RFID/PIN/Fingerprint Codepanel and a power supply.

You can use a normal one (between 6V and 24V) or  a special one for the codepanel if a bell, door lock, additional switch or something else should be used also.

 

I did connect power to the codepanel (DC+) and to the Fibrao Sensor (P, red wire) and ground with Fibaro (GND, blue wire) and twice with the codepanel (GND and COM).

Also I did connect the alarm wire of the codepanel with IN2 (green wire) of the Fibaro module and the NO wire of the codepanel with IN1 (yellow wire) of the Fibaro module.

(Later on I will do some drawing).

 

To make this working you will have to change the settings of the Fibaro module.

For me it was working by using the scene activation.

For this I did set up input 1 and 2 as mono stable (I think this is parameter 20 and 21), did put HC2 in associative group 2, disabled the two output connections (you don't have to do this I think), enabled "Key pressing and holding" for Input 1 and 2 (alias parameter 40 and 41) and that's it.

 

Than you will have to write two scenes. Both should react on the scene child module of the Fibaro Smart Implant for the action "Key [1|2] HeldDown".

Key 1 will get triggered if somebody authenticated successfully and key 2 will get triggered if the alarm (e.g. somebody tries to open the case) goes on.

 

My use case will be to open the garage door or open the cellar door by entering the proper ID or using the right RFID chip.
