I'm totally on your side Sender, even tho you are one of the most vocal users on this forum. We actually value critical opinions.

As a Vera and Fibaro user myself and also being part of the Customer Care team for a couple of years in the front line, this is not easy on anyone.

I can only underline what has been already said by some of the importance voices here at Vera -  that our best intention is to have EVERYTHING sorted.
I know the age of these requests, as I've been here when they started  8) but remember that it has been a transition in the meantime that came with new forces, new ideas, and most important, with heavy community return in focus.

Sorin,

Regarding the timeline...
You made an indirect reference to melih?s timeplan.
It is unknown to me.

Could you please repeat approximately when you plan to release a solution to our problems.
Are you currently beta testing?
Many thanks,
Bob

Bobone,

I can tell you that we are already a few sprints into the development cycle, but I can't be more specific than that. Because of the fact that there is A LOT happening and things are things are yet to be settled, I cannot personally give you more than what Melih gave you, although I'd love to do that.

I was about to buy a couple of these FGS223, but it is probably better to wait...

I have the same problem with the 212, the support told me that there is no ETA for the fix..... I can see it is an old problem..... isn't it strange that such an important device in the Zwave space stay all this time without a fix??!!

how can we push them to do a better job on this?

you can't. we're approaching two years of pushing and the results are, well, non-existent. we started with a not supported device at all, and now we're at a device supported but not really implemented. at this pace, maybe we'll have it integrated before Fibaro will ship a new version. and the story will restart from the beginning #truestory #beentherealready

I just tried one more time to fiddle around with the FGS-223, but gave it up.

Then went out and got a Qubino Flush 2 Relay. With temp sensor. Wow, what a difference!
It includes fast, painless and securely with no hickups at all. Used Generic Z-wave device, bad experience with doing Qubino dimmer with Vera built in template.

Switching the loads of the Qubino, either using GUI or physical switches is completely instant and reliable. All delays are gone after deleting the Fibaro switches from the system.

So, why does this work perfectly well with Qubino, but not with Fibaro? Is it all Veras fault with poor implementation of the FGS-223, or is there something else here?

Anyway, I recommend you to switch to Qubino units if you still struggle with the FGS-223. It was a great relief.

Yes still struggling...

What is the exact model number of the qubinos? Just standard inclusion or any other specials?

Model numbers vary with frequency, check here:
http://qubino.com/products/flush-2-relays/

See attachements for mine.

I did standard inclusion (is there another way?)
1) Put Vera Plus in inclusion mode (generic Z-wave device)
2) Connect power to Qubino (close to the Vera, less than one meter)
3) Voila - all good

Let's not give Vera a too easy way out.

Not addressing (succeeeding?) to fix what all major hub manufacturers have is simply not impressive...

I find it way more important to make my system reliable than to waste my time on pointing fingers at Vera. It is a waste of time.

Why? I have a bunch of them on the shelf, using them is the worst option. It messes up everything.
I figure there are three options
1) migrate away from Vera
2) migrate away from Fibaro
3) Keep wishing Vera will fix it eventually

Your choice. I just discovered an easy way out. Will be selling my Fibaro units online, easy fix.
