Fibaro Motion Sensor
« on: April 04, 2014, 08:42:44 pm »
Anyone got any review on these?

I have 2 due to arrive in a few days. Interesting to see what the time delay is compared to other battery operated motion sensors.

I do not have one yet, but I'm considering it. Just to have a play with one.

I look forward to seeing how they work out.

It's possible they may not be fully supported by Vera at this time, however MCV claim to have a 100% compatibility guarantee with any z-wave devices - so they should hopefully be able to help you out.

Hi Guys,

We're testing the motion sensor today (we only got the first batch late on Friday and have one on it's way to our support guys).

As soon as we have the test results, I'll post them here.

Mark,

We've tested it in UI5 and I'm afraid it's bad news.

It fails to include into VERA, it gets stuck almost at the first stage of inclusion - http://www.vesternet.com/knowledgebase/technical/kb-40.

This appears to be the same issue that affects the Fibaro Smoke Detector in UI5 (which most of us are aware of). I would imagine this is related to the use of V2 Command classes as well.

We've highlighted this again to VERA.

Today, we're also going to test it with UI6 so that we have a full picture of what's happening. I'll update this post.

Mine arrived today. I can confirm its a well designed bit of kit and the led indicator at the front is s nice feature. Other than that we will have to wait for vera to get it working....

Mark, do you have the "beta" firmware which lets the smoke sensor work (partially)?

Either sit and wait, or use Vera's own promotions against them - http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Guaranteed_Compatibility

I've raised one too.  MCV replied today asking me to enable verbose logging and then exclude include the device...

MCV just sent me a link to a beta firmware version which fixed the installation issue, but motion detection doesn't appear to be getting reported and light level and temperature only change on wake-up.  >:(
