Description

FIBARO Button is a compact, battery-powered, Z-Wave Plus compatible device. It allows you to control devices through the Z-Wave network and run various scenes defined in FIBARO System.

Different actions may be triggered with one to five clicks or by holding the button down. In panic mode, each press of the button results in triggering of the emergency scene.

With its small design and wireless communication, the FIBARO Button can be conveniently mounted on any surface and in any position or location at home, e.g. beside the bed or under the desk.

Configuration

Associations

Association (linking devices) – direct control of other devices within the Z-Wave system network e.g. Dimmer, Relay Switch, Wall Plug, Roller Shutter or scene (may be controlled only through a Z-Wave controller).

Association ensures direct transfer of control commands between devices, is performed without participation of the main controller and requires associated device to be in the direct range.

The Button provides the association of four groups:

1st association group – “Lifeline” reports the device status and allows for assigning single device only (main controller by default).
2nd association group – “On/Off” is assigned to clicking the button and is used to turn on/off associated devices.
3rd association group – “Dimmer” is assigned to holding the button and is used to change level of associated devices.
4th association group – “Alarm“ is assigned to clicking and/or holding the button (triggers are defined in parameter 30) and is used to send alarm frames to associated devices.

The Button in 2nd, 3rd and 4th group allows to control 5 regular or multichannel devices per an association group, with the exception of “LifeLine” that is reserved solely for the controller and hence only 1 node can be assigned.

It is not recommended to associate more than 10 devices in general, as the response time to control commands depends on the number of associated devices. In extreme cases, system response may be delayed.

To add an association (using the Home Center controller):

  1. Go to device options by clicking the icon: klucz_grey_kolko
  2. Select the „Advanced” tab
  3. Click the “Setting Association” button.
  4. Specify to which group and what devices are to be associated.
  5. Save the changes.
  6. Wake up the device manually to confirm changes (4 clicks).

Any new association order given while any association commands are already being sent to devices, cancels previous one.

Advanced parameters

The Button allows to customize its operation to user’s needs. The settings are available in the FIBARO interface as simple options that may be chosen by selecting the appropriate box.
In order to configure the Button (using the Home Center controller):

  1. Go to the device options by clicking the icon: klucz_grey_kolko
  2. Select the „Advanced” tab.
  3. Modify values of chosen parameters.
  4. Save the changes.
  5. Wake up the device manually to confirm changes (4 clicks).

Wake up interval (battery mode)

Available settings: 0 or 3600-64800 (in seconds, 1h – 18h)
Default setting: (only manual wake up)

The Button will wake up at each defined time interval and always try to connect with the main controller. Longer wake up time interval means less frequent communication and thus a longer battery life.

After successful communication attempt, the device will update configuration parameters, associations and settings and then will go into Z-Wave communication standby.

After failed communication attempt (eg. no Z-Wave range) the device will go into Z-Wave communication standby and retry to establish connection with the main controller after the next time interval.

Setting wake up interval to 0 disables sending Wake Up notification to the controller automatically. Wake up may be still performed manually by clicking the Button 4 times.

This parameter determines which actions result in sending scene IDs and attributes assigned to them.
