HC3 and problems including FGS-211 (3kW switch)

Michal Pr


Hello Fibaro community !


I am trying to pair switch FGS-211 with Fibaro Home Center 3 (not the lite version) as my old Vera died and I have to reconfigure all z-wave devices.


I could not de-associate FGS-211 from older controller as it died, so I wen't through reset procedure (3 seconds push on B-pin after power on).


Now I am trying to associate it with the new Fibaro HC3 without success. I am enabling inclusion mode, being really close to the controller and nothing happens, the device is not found.


I have number of those switches in use, so I would be really sad if they are incompatible with HC3.


Note that I have successfully paired FIBARO Roller Shutter 3 and Danfoss Z-wave thermostat with the main unit.


Is this know problem or maybe I should perform some different path to include the device into HC3 rather then simple + and search for z-wave devices?


During initial setup my HC3 asked if I want to be on 2.0 or 3.0 (beta) version, of course I selected newest and greatest :), maybe that's the problem ?

Perhaps you should read about 3.0 engine here on the forum.

You will see its not for all devices "the greatest".

Old Switches should work ok with both Z-Wave engines, of course device exact version is a factor - anyway, those should include normally - does not matter if it is old or new device or old or new Z-Wave engine. 
Have you tried classic exclusion with triple click?

I have always performed reset on those units by holding down b-button during power up for 3 seconds, not after powering them up - are you sure that you are doing it correctly?

  • Thank you for your answers. I took 24DC power adapter, which is safer to operate close to the Fibaro HC3 main unit and reset + reconfigured the device FGS-211 switch. Works like charm.


    I was doing pretty much the same operation on the 230V AC, but for some reason the device was not happy, unfortunately those older switches do not have diode indicator to confirm operation.


    Thanks for help!
