I discovered an unexpected behaviour with the S2 input of one FGD211.
I have connected S1, S2 and Sx to a double switch. I created a group 2 associated to another Z-wave device. I set parameter 14 to 1 as my switch is a standard switch (bi-stable).
Using S1 through the switch is ok.
Using S2 through the switch is ok.
But I discovered that after changing the state of S2, 3 movments of the S1 switch are required to change the state of the connected load, instead of 1 as usual. So S2 impacts S1. Is it a bug ? Is there a parameter to adjust that ?
I just want S2 to have no impact on S1, meaning I can use S2 and then use S1 as if I have never used S2.
PS: how to know the version of the Fibaro device ? VersionInfo in the Vera has a value “3,3,42,1,9”, not a value easy to analyse…
I just tried with an older Fibaro FGD211 present elsewhere in my house, same setup, and I did not notice the same bug with this one.
As a conclusion, it could be a bug with the recent version of the product (I don’t know which version I have but the product has been purchased recently).
Now my problem is that association of S2 with another Z-Wave device is working but status of this associated device in not updated in the Vera when I push S2. I was expecting this update in order to trigger a scene when the state of the device turns ON or OFF. Is it normal ?
What shall I do to trigger a Vera scene from the S2 swith ?
It sounds like your associated device does not support instant-status reporting so Vera only updates the status when it next polls the device. The FGS211 supports instant-status on S1 and the FGS221 supports it on both relays.
Ok, it is good to know that this is working with few associated devices.
Unfortunately, I have not the Fibaro devices you mention. But I can try to associate another FGD211 on S1, just by curiosity.
My tests were done with two different associated power switch devices, one from Aeon Labs, one from Everspring. No chance.
That sounds like a good plan. FWIW: I use FGS221 even when I only want a single relay so that I have the potential to use S2 as an instant-status input in the future. I have already made use of this simple way to add another human-friendly input to an existing lightswitch. The FGS211 and FGS221 are the same size and same cost so, unless you need > 1.5kW for the circuit, you may as well use the dual FGS221. ;D
I can trigger my lounge lighting scenes either from a Logitech Harmony 1100 via KiraRx or a ZWave.Me keyfob. Both work well. The Harmony makes most sense when watching TV or listening to music. The keyfob is just a handy, and low-cost, remote. The switch on the wall is just there for guests. ;D
