Update!

I had taken mine out of my setup for a while and today I had some time to look at it again.  I re-added the sensor to the Vera Lite controller (I'm still on 1.7.947) as a Generic Z-Wave device and was pleasantly surprised to see it being recognised as the FGBS221 with two inputs and a temperature sensor.  It was however still not recognising anything on the two inputs, so I went back to my email archive and found the following instructions from Vera support

Quote
In order for the inputs to work properly after the inclusion you will need to add a variable to each of the inputs. To do that please go to Devices and press on the arrow pointing to the right for each input and then Advanced > New Service and add the variable form below

Service: "urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveDevice1",
Variable: "BasicSetCapabilities",
Value: "00=U0,FF=T0"

I looked at the BasicSetCapabilities value first and noticed it had different values there.  I then followed the above instruction (so adding the parameter, even though it is already there) and reloaded the interface once done.

And now the inputs work!

sensor inputs are reporting the correct state instantly and temperatures are also reported

You have temp reading AND inputs from the same sensor?
According to the Fibaro manual it is either temp or binary inputs. It would be nice to have both at the same time

yes, both temp and the 2 inputs!

That's a very good news for me!
I have one (working without problems, and without any modification of the settings), but suggested by manual (and phone talk with support) I didn't even try to attach temp sensor. And that would be really nice at the location where I have it.

please be aware that for the temp to work you have to do the inclusion with temp probes already attached. So in your case that means you have to exclude first.

Yes, I'm aware of that (according to the manual every change in configuration of temp. sensors need exclusion/re-inclusion to be working) but thanks for reminding!

interstingly enough I have a few of the sensors working perfectly (some with temperature sensors attached, some without).
today I added 2 more binary sensors on latest firmware on a vera plus, one with temp, one without. the temp came up but stopped updating. Only the first input correctly trips, the others dont react at all. This is so annoying.

This is similar to what I am seeing. I have a chain of 4 temp sensors and at one point they all stopped working on a previous firmware. Then I excluded and re-included them and all but the last one were working, so I left it as it was. Then I though the last sensor may have been broken and removed that and now the last sensor in the chain (previously sensor 3) has stopped reporting. Therefore it looks like it will stop reporting on the last sensor. This sounds very much like a bug to me.

I found this device in a drawer and tried to include it to my Vera Edge running the latest FW 1.7.3231. I get two motion sensors but no temperature sensor from the attached DS18B20? I don't get any response from the binary sensors either. Tried to change the BasicSetCapabilities values but no luck.

I have tried the device on a RPi3 running HASS with an Aeon Z-Wave stick. The binary sensors works there.

Doesn't UI7 support this device anymore?

EDIT: Got the binary sensors working after a couple of reboots! Yay! I still do not get any temperature sensors from the attached DS18B20?

As far as I know there were problems with older units (older firmware). You can check if temp sensors are attached correctly and not damaged.
I have two FGBS-001's both with two temp. sensors attached (I plan to increase number of sensors to 4 in one unit) and they are working fine, both binary and temp. sensors.
I've purchased them during last quarter, so both are new ones with (if nothing changed during last couple of months) latest firmware.
