issues with fibaro keyfob connection
« on: June 17, 2018, 05:50:11 pm »
Hey,
up until recently, my Fibaro keyfob remote control worked almost flawlessly and only seldom did it had connection issues.
today (and I suspect one of the recent vera FW updates) most of my key presses fail.
I get a yellow blinking light followed by a red light in the end.
after pressing few times, I see the promised green light and the scene is activated.
Happens even in my kitchen where it's ~2 meters from vera controller.
According to vera, keyfob has 17% battery left.

I have Vera edge with latest version (1.7.3830)

any help would be much appreciated.

I have had problems too.
Scenes has stopped working and I cannot make them work by deleting and recreate.
It happend a few firmwares ago.
Have put in a ticket but did not get a specifik answer.

My guess is it's the security inclusion.  There's been many reports about issues with other Fibaro devices that use security.

I had issues pairing mine a couple firmwares ago but after it successfully paired (just kept trying), and now I?m on the latest firmware, the device is still working properly - though I handle the button pushes via PLEG rather than via scenes.

Sorry just want to correct my statement above - I use the keyfob via the Vera config and scenes and not via PLEG.

I would like to use PLEG but I get an script error. The PLEG forum on here suggested reinstalling the components, which I did, but didn?t fix it.

However, as it currently works using scenes, not a high priority for me.
