FIBARO System Update 5.080 for Home Center 3


Recommended Posts

Dear users,

Thank you for using our gateway! Be sure to update to the latest version to enjoy new features and improvements.

Important Notices:

The following software update removes energy data collected during the use of versions lower than 5.072 beta due to a changed strategy for handling reports.

For all Z-Wave devices which feature meter capabilities (power, energy, gas, water, etc.) soft-reconfiguration procedure is required due to improvements in support of those device types (not applicable to updates from version 5.072 beta).

Update 5.080 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 engine and its compatibility will be developed with further updates - not all Z-Wave devices are fully supported.

ATTENTION - installing version 5.080 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.

CAUTION - updating to version 5.080 is not recommended if gateway connection feature is in use. Due to an issue resulting in Z-Wave engine switching, devices added to slave gateways may become unavailable. The issue will be resolved in the next update.

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.
Support for configuring device parameters.
Redesigned configuration wizard.

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.
New Savings tab and Panel Settings window.

Caution: the data presented in the Energy Panel is only an estimate due to the measuring accuracy of the devices involved in the calculations.

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.
