Smart Implant with binary sensor on IN2, momentary pulse gate open on OUT1

Simon W


Fibaro Smart Implant connected as a generic ZWave device on Vera Plus. Gate control working ok on OUT1; can't read binary input on IN2


IN1 - not connected

OUT1 - connected onto gate control's "step-by-step" function, which is a press button short-circuit connection at the motor to trigger open/close

IN2 - magnetic reed switch which is open circuit when gate is open, closed (0 ohms) when gate is closed

OUT2 - not connected


I have separated 1 from 2 as I do not need/want interaction between them, and using Vera I don't have an easy way to change Protection classes.


The device is added to Vera as a generic device, which creates a set of nine devices:

  • The Smart Implant itself (id 147)
  • _Temperature Sensor - 148
  • _Generic IO - 149
  • _Generic IO 1 - 150
  • _GET_LANG(generic_sensor,sensor) - 151
  • _GET_LANG(generic_sensor,sensor) - 152
  • _Appliance Module - 153
  • _Appliance Module 1 - 154
  • _GET_LANG(generic_sensor,sensor) - 155


I have configured the following configuration settings in the Smart Implant (master device):

  • 21-IN2 operating mode: 0 (alarm, normally closed) - so it will be in alarm state when the sensor is 'open', i.e. when the gate is open
  • 156-OUT1 auto off: 1 (0.1s pulse)


Observations so far for OUT1

  1. If I switch "_Appliance Module" to ON, the gate opens... So I assume that "_Appliance Module" is the OUT1 switch
  2. I have to re-switch "_Appliance Module" to OFF, it does not return to OFF automatically
  3. If I hit ON again, it closes


So I have basic open/close functionality, but would like to have the "_Appliance Module" switch accurately reflect what parameter 156 is making it do - a 0.1s "ON" then return to "OFF". I can always resolve that downstream in Home Assistant though, by automating an "off" +1s after it is turned "on".


Observations so far for IN2

I have no idea though, where and how to read the state of IN2. I think that "_Generic IO" is IN1, and "_Generic IO 1" is IN2 (maybe?) but it does not reflect the status of the gate and its magnetic reed switch opening/closing.


Can anyone assist with how to configure so IN2 reflects its status?

  • I've completed a very simple script in Home Assistant which triggers a 'switch off' 1/2s after "_Appliance Module" is activated, so I now have full open/close control via the Smart Implant by pushing a button in Home Assistant ?


    All I need to work out now is how to read the state of IN2!

  • Further progress has been made in that I now have the IN2 input assigned a door sensor type in Vera (as it is a door open/closed magnetic sensor attached), but it's still not correctly flagging to the open/closed status on IN2. Is there a way to "see" what IN2 is seeing on input when the magnetic switch is open or closed? I.e. a parameter that can be read to show what the device is seeing on input side?

  • Sorted it...


    Using a variation of work here:

     but not the defnitions from the third post, from later down the thread and with some edits for NC instead of NO.
