Hints

  • If you don’t know which group is assigned to which function read more about it in User ManualAssociations.
  • FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 allows for controlling 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group. In case of associating only Roller Shutters the limit is increased to 15. 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.
