Configuration

Associations

Association (linking devices) – direct control of other devices within the Z-Wave system network e.g. Dimmer, Relay Switch, Roller Shutter, Wall Plug 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 device provides the association of seven groups:
1st Association Group – Lifeline Reporting device state. Only one device – Z-Wave network controller may be set in this group. It’s not recommended to modify this association group.
2nd Association Group – CO Alarm is assigned to the device status – devices in this group will be switched on/off when CO Alarm status changes.
3rd Association Group – CO Alarm is assigned to the device status – devices in this group will receive notification when CO Alarm status changes. Useful for devices that can trigger alarms.
4th Association Group – CO Level is assigned to measured CO level – devices in this group will be switched on/off after exceeding the level of CO concentration specified in parameter 14.
5th Association Group – Tamper Alarm is assigned to the tamper – sends tamper alarm and cancellation frames to the associated devices.
6th Association Group – CO Alarm BC is assigned to the device status – devices in this group will receive sensor alarm frames when CO Alarm status changes. Provides backward compatibility with controllers not supporting Z-Wave+ protocol.
7th Association Group – Tamper Alarm BC is assigned to the tamper – sends tamper alarm and alarm cancellation frames to the associated devices. Provides backward compatibility with controllers not supporting Z-Wave+ protocol.

The CO Sensor in 2nd to 7th group allows to control 5 regular or multichannel devices per an association group. “LifeLine” group 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. Specify to which group and what devices are to be associated
  4. Wait for the configuration process to end. Sending relevant information to devices added to associated groups may take up to a few hours depending on the previous configuration parameters settings.
  5. Wake up the device manually to speed up the configuration process

Adavanced parameters

The CO Sensor 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 CO Sensor (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. Press the button to wake up the device.

 

Wake up interval:

Available settings: 0 or 3600 – 43200 (in seconds, 1h – 12h)

Default setting: 21 600 (6h)

The CO Sensor will wake up at each defined time interval and always try to connect with the main controller. After successful communication
attempt, the device will update configuration parameters, associations, 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 using the button.
Longer time interval means less frequent communication and thus a longer battery life.

FAQ



FIBARO CO Sensor is an ultra-light, compact, battery-powered carbon monoxide detector, designed to be placed on a wall. Its high sensitivity allows to detect the presence of the carbon monoxide (CO) gas at the early stage in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.


Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless poison gas that can be fatal when inhaled. It is produced when liquid, solid, or gas fuel is burned.


The early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can be confused with flu-like symptoms: headache, dizziness and nausea.
Breathing carbon monoxide causes these symptoms even in healthy people. It can also cause sleepiness, vision problems (including blurred vision), ringing in the ears, aching arms and legs, irregular breathing, fatigue and confusion. At very high levels, it causes loss of consciousness and death.


When changing the Sensor’s location, it is recommended to wake up the device and reconfigure the Z-Wave network by clicking the button.


Take off the cover, remove the empty battery, insert a new one, and close the cover.


FIBARO CO Sensor may operate both as a stand-alone carbon monoxide detector and in cooperation with Z-Wave home automation system.


The accessory should be installed on the wall, below the ceiling level and at least 30 cm (1 ft) away from the corners. Remember that Recommended height of installation depends on the purpose of the room and height at which head typically is.


The device designed for indoor use only.


Yes. Expiration date is located on sticker on the front of the device. Replace the device before given date or if sensor error is detected.


No, battery powered devices are not able to do so.


FIBARO CO Sensor is always armed and ready to detect carbon monoxide.


Long-term presence in the room with the lower concentration of CO can be as poisonous and harmful for your health as CO in high dosage. In the case of such situation, follow the messages displayed on your phone or Home Center interface.
