Surface around the installation box should be perfectly smooth to ensure aligning the device with the wall.
The device may be powered in two ways:
- Power supply 12V DC (+/- 10%) 1A LPS (not included)
- PoE (Power over Ethernet) PSE 48V
Both powering modes work in parallel and may be connected at the same time with no effect on the device operation.
The device may be connected to network in two different ways:
- Ethernet – wired connection (recommended)
- Wi-Fi – wireless connection
Wired connection is recommended, but if you decided to use Wi-Fi connection make sure that the device will be in range of your router and have a good quality connection.
Before routing the wires make sure what you want to connect and how many wires you will need:
- Power supply 12V DC – used to power the device with external power supply.
Wires required: 2
- Ethernet – used for communication with the device and can be also used to power it using PoE Power over Ethernet.
Wires required: 1 twisted pair cable with 8 wires
- Built-in relays – can be used to open 2 gates or doors with an electric lock (via app, BLE proximity function, PIN code or physical buttons).
Wires required: 2 wires per one gate/door
- Two buttons for built-in relays – can be used to control built-in relay using physical buttons, switches etc.
Wires required: 1 wire per one button and 1 wire for common ground
- Tamper – can be connected to an external system to alarm it in case of sabotage attempt.
Wires required: 2
When routing wires take into consideration:
- The installation wires of the unit must be lead separately from the mains power wires to prevent the transmission interference and overvoltage on the control lines.
- Wires inside the installation boxes should be as short as possible to prevent curling the wires and allow for easy assembling of the in-wall part.
- Installation wires should be carried securely and not visible from the outside, preventing from the interference by unauthorized person.
- Recommended Ethernet cable for network connection is a twisted pair cable CAT-5e. The maximum cable length is 100 meters.
- Other inputs should be connected using the solid-core wires with cross-section from 0.14 to 0.34 mm2 (26…22 AWG). Connectors are also capable of connecting stranded wires.
- Close vicinity of mains (110V/230V) electrical wires may cause deterioration of the transmission through the Internet and potential noise on the inputs.
Before installation pay attention to:
- Installation box must be mounted using the materials which will not cause the tension that could deform the shape of a box after the installation (e.g. by expanding).
- Mounting in the drywall requires using screws with hooks (not included).
- Mounting in the insulation-filled wall (e.g. drywall with mineral wool) requires to keep at least 10cm distance from the insulation to prevent the device from overheating.
To install the box:
- Prepare hole for 65mm x 75mm (diameter x depth) installation box.
- Route cables to the back of the hole (see “Choosing and routing wires” on page 8).
- Drag the cables through the rubber sealing on the back of the box, taking care to keep the tightness.
- Mount the box in the hole and align it so the TOP arrow points up.
- Make sure the box is flush with the wall and firmly attached.
To install the in-wall part:
- Use a screwdriver to unscrew the small screw that secures the masking cap labelled with FIBARO logo.
- Drag the wires through the hole located on the right of the in-wall part.
- Place the in-wall part of the device inside the installation box.
- Using three attached screws fasten the part with the box, make sure it is aligns properly and adjoins the wall.
To connect the wires:
- Make sure that no wires are powered.
- Remove the outer insulation to expose about 5 cm of the insulated inner wires, taking care not to damage them.
- Separate and straighten the inner wires if twisted.
- Cut the inner wires to 4 cm in length.
- Remove the insulation from the inner wires to leave about 5 mm of exposed metal core on each wire.
- Put the wires inside the terminals using long-nose pliers or tweezers according to diagrams below.
- Make sure all wires are firmly attached.
Should you need to remove a wire from the connector we recommend to use a dedicated tool - WAGO 2059-189 (not included, shown below) to minimize the risk of connectors damage.
ETH1-ETH8 inputs are related to specified numbers of wires in RJ-45 connector according to the T-568B standard as shown below.
Inputs for connecting an external 12V DC power supply. Please double-check correct polarity of power supply.
Caution! Before connecting the power supply, or attaching the wires to device terminals, make sure that the power supply and installation complies with the limits of current and voltage.
Use only Class II or double insulated power supplies and peripheral devices which provide operating in SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) circuits.
