Description

FIBARO Door/Window Sensor 2 is a wireless, battery powered, Z-Wave Plus compatible magnetic contact sensor. Changing the device’s status will automatically send signal to the Z-Wave controller and associated devices.

Sensor can be used to trigger scenes and wherever there is a need for information about opening or closing of doors, windows, garage doors, etc. Opening is detected by separating the sensor’s body and the magnet.

In addition the FIBARO Door/Window Sensor 2 is equipped with a built-in temperature sensor.

Operating the device

Tamper (TMP) button

The Door/Window Sensor 2 is equipped with a tamper switch with two buttons.

First TMP button is located inside the device, pressed by the closed cover and is used to detect openning it.

Second TMP button is located at bottom of the device, pressed by the surface on which the device is mounted and is used to detect detaching the device.

tmp

For the tamper switch to work one of the buttons must always be pressed!

When one of the buttons is released, the tamper alarm will be send to the controller and associated devices.
Additionally, tamper button allows to control the device directly.

Reset

Reset procedure allows to restore the device back to its factory settings, which means all information about the Z-Wave controller and user configuration will be deleted.

Resetting the device is not the recommended way of removing the device from the Z-Wave network. Use reset procedure only if the primary controller is missing or inoperable. Certain device removal can be achieved by the procedure of removing.

Opening the casing may result in triggering an alarm. To avoid it, remove the associations for the 3rd group.

Resetting the Door/Window Sensor 2:

  1. Open the cover.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Install the battery while holding both TMP buttons.
  4. Visual LED indicator will be flashing slowly for 5 seconds – keep holding the buttons.
  5. Release one button when the LED indicator starts flashing quickly.
  6. Click released button once to confirm launching of reset procedure.
  7. Wait a few seconds until a long blink of the LED indicator. Do not remove the battery.
  8. Visual LED indicator will blink 5 times quickly to confirm the reset.

Wake Up

The Door/Window Sensor 2 needs to be woken up to receive information about the new configuration from the controller, like parameters and associations.

To wake up the sensor manually, click one of the TMP buttons (while the other button is pressed).

FIBARO Home Center controller

After adding the Sensor to the FIBARO System, it will be represented by two or three icons in Home Center interface.

First icon informs about the status of magnetic sensor (open/close), second icon displays temperature measured by the built-in sensor. Third icon is assigned to high/low temperature alarm and is visible only if parameter 54 is not equal to 0.

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 Door/Window Sensor 2 provides the association of three 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 the device status – contact sensor (sends Basic Set command frames).
3rd association group – “Tamper” is assigned to the TMP switch (sends alarm command frames).

The Door/Window Sensor 2 in 2nd and 3rd group allows to control 5 devices (regular or multichannel) per an association group. “LifeLine” group is reserved solely for the controller and hence only 1 node can be assigned.

“Lifeline“ supported Z-Wave Command Classes: Notification, Battery, Sensor Multilevel, Device Reset Locally.

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 or wait for the next automatic wake up.

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

Advanced parameters

The Door/Window Sensor 2 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 Door/Window Sensor 2 (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.

Entering invalid value of parameter will result in response with Application Rejected frame and not setting the value.

Wake up interval (battery mode)

Available settings: 0 or 3600-64800 (in seconds, 1h – 18h)
Default setting: 21600 (6h)

The Door/Window Sensor 2 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.

This parameter allows to set in what state is door/window when the magnet is close to the sensor.

Available settings:
0 – closed when magnet near
1 – opened when magnet near
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

This parameter defines events indicated by the visual LED indicator. Disabling events might extend battery life.

Available settings:
1 – indication of opening/closing status change
2 – indication of wake up (1 x click or periodical)
4 – indication of device tampering
Default setting: 6
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

Parameter 2 values may be combined, e.g. 1+2=3 means that indications for opening/closing and waking up are enabled.

This parameter defines how commands are sent in specified association groups: as secure or non-secure. Parameter is active only in Z-Wave network Security Mode. It does not apply to 1st group “Lifeline”.

Available settings:
0 – none of the groups sent as secure
1 – 2nd group ”On/Off” sent as secure
2 – 3rd group ”Tamper” sent as secure
3 – 2nd and 3rd group sent as secure
Default setting: (all)
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

Parameter defines events which result in sending on/off commands to devices added to the 2nd association group.

These commands are sent alternately to switch the devices on and off.

Available settings:
0 – switch after opening and closing
1 – switch after opening (parameter 12)
2 – switch after closing (parameter 13)
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

Available settings: 0-99 or 255 – sent value
Default setting: 255
Parameter size: 2 [bytes]

Value sent to devices in 2nd association group when opening is detected.

The value of 0 turns OFF the device, 255 turns it ON.

In case of associating devices allowing smooth control, values 1-99 allow to set an associated device to a specified level.

Available settings: 0-99 or 255 – sent value
Default setting: 0

Available settings:
0 – do not send tamper cancellation report
1 – send tamper cancellation report
Default setting: 1
Parameter size: 1 [byte]

This parameter defines how often the temperature will be measured. The shorter the time, the more frequently the temperature will be measured, but the battery life will shorten.

Available settings:
0 – temperature measurements disabled
5-32400 – time in seconds
Default setting: 300 (5min)
Parameter size: 2 [bytes]

This parameter defines the change of temperature in comparison with last reported, resulting in temperature report being sent to the main controller.

Available settings:

Available settings:
0 – periodic temperature reports disabled
300-32400 – time in seconds
Default setting: 0
Parameter size: 2 [bytes]

Temperature measurement is performed before sending any report (regardless of parameter no. 50). Excessive reporting can affect battery lifetime. Reporting on the basis of temperature change (parameter no. 51) is recommended.
