Arranging the antenna

  • Locate the antenna as far from metal elements as possible (connecting wires, bracket rings, etc.) in order to prevent interferences.
  • Metal surfaces in the direct vicinity of the antenna (e.g. flush mounted metal boxes, metal door frames) may impair signal reception!
  • Do not cut or shorten the antenna – its length is perfectly matched to the band in which the system operates.

Operating the device

Controlling using an external switch

Momentary switch (after releasing the switch a spring automatically pushes back and disconnects the switch):

  • Turn the load ON/OFF: briefly press the button corresponding to the chosen load

Toggle switch (operates as a two-position switch, it has no spring that would set one position of the switch):

  • Turn the load ON/OFF: change the position of the button corresponding to the chosen load

Back To Top

ALL ON/ALL OFF

The device responds to commands ALL ON/ALL OFF that may be sent by the Z-Wave controller. ALL ON/ALL OFF commands are usually implemented in the remote controllers using Z-wave protocol, and they are used to issue commands directed to the entire system.

By default, both commands ALL ON and ALL OFF are accepted. Settings may be changed by modifying the value of parameter 1. In this way the user may determine to which commands the device should respond.

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.

FIBARO Double Relay Switch allows for the associations of three groups:

1st Association Group is assigned to S1 terminal – sending command frames to the associated devices whenever button connected to S1 terminal is pressed.
2nd Association Group is assigned to S2 terminal – sending command frames to the associated devices whenever button connected to S2 terminal is pressed.
3rd Association Group reports the device status and allows to assign single device only (the main controller by default).

FIBARO Double Relay Switch in 1st and 2nd group allows to control 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group. 3rd 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 even a few minutes.

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

FAQ


Remotely Controlled Double Relay Switch of FIBARO System is designed to operate in a wall switch box or in locations where the control of two electric devices is needed.

The Relay Switch should be powered from 110-240V AC (50/60Hz).

The main difference between 2×1.5kW and 1×2.5kW is number of physical outputs and load capacity.

It can be any voltage up to 240V AC.

No, only previous generation of the device was able to do so.

No. The Relay Switch needs to be connected to Neutral Wire. To control circuits where there is no Neutral wire at the switch location please refer to the Dimmer module.

Yes, you can – the relay is volt free by default.

Group 1 is assigned to S1, Group 2 is assigned to S2 and Group 3 is only used for reporting module’s state to the controller.

These terminals are designed to be connected to the switch. S1 is designed to control O1 output, S2 to control O2 output.
