FIBARO System Update 5.071 BETA for Home Center 3


Recommended Posts

Please login or register to see this image.



Dear users,


We would like to announce that the latest 5.071 BETA is now available.
The update introduces a number of significant features and fixes.


Before proceeding with the update we highly recommend that you read the "Important Notice" section carefully.
In case of any additional questions regarding the update, do not hesitate to reach our team via [email protected]



Important Notice

The following software update contains a lot of new features to enhance the capabilities of your system.

Due to the number of changes, we recommend installation only for advanced users and installers.

Update 5.071 includes a new version of the Z-Wave software (called Z-Wave 3.0). This version features expanded default device support, the ability to add products using Smart Start technology and many other changes. Please note that this is a beta version and its compatibility will be developed with further updates - not all Z-Wave devices are fully supported**.

ATTENTION - installing version 5.071 does not automatically change the existing Z-Wave 2.0 software to 3.0. In order to run version 3.0, it is necessary to restore the gateway to factory settings, requiring the system to be configured from scratch. In future updates we will work on extended device support and provide a mechanism to migrate your current system configuration to the new Z-Wave engine.

Main features:

1. Z-Wave Software 3.0

New Z-Wave engine version 3.0 - in order to use it is necessary to configure the system from scratch. Currently it is not possible to migrate the system in version 2.0 (current) to version 3.0 (new).

Version 3.0 includes the following changes:

  • Simplified mechanism for adding devices (Smart Start).
  • Support for improved encryption mechanisms (Security S2).
  • Streamlined process of advanced device parameters configuration.
  • Possibility to update device software from a file.
  • Extended compatibility of Z-Wave devices (more devices, additional features).

2. Yubii Ecosystem (Home Center 3 & Yubii Home)*

Changes to the Yubii Ecosystem device support:

  • New features related to operating speed for selected devices (also available from block scenes and notifications).
  • Support for further Nice devices.

We have started working in early access to support Elero devices in the Yubii Ecosystem:

  • First, test feature for adding devices to the ecosystem (support for roller shutters only).
  • The functionality is under development and may be significantly modified in future updates.

3. Energy Panel

The first part of functionalities we are providing in the brand-new Energy Panel:

  • Eye-catching energy data visualisation interface.
  • Preview of energy data generated by devices using renewable energy sources.
  • Preview of individual and aggregated data related to energy consumption at home.

We will add further functionalities in upcoming updates.

4. Gateway Connection

We have introduced a mechanism for linking HC3L and Yubii Home gateways. It is possible to connect a master HC3 with HC3L or Yubii Home, which operate in slave mode. This allows to create a smart home system based on HC3, HC3L and YH products. Please note that the master panel can only be HC3. Note - linking of control panels only works within the Z-Wave 2.0 engine.
