room1room2

Actual range of the sensor can be influenced by environment conditions. Should false motion alarms be reported, check for any moving objects within the sensor’s detection area, such as trees blowing in the wind, cars passing by, windmills. False motion alarms may be caused by moving masses of air and heat as well. If the device keeps on reporting false alarms, despite eliminating all of the above-mentioned factors, install the device in another place.

Configuration

Associations

Association (linking devices) – direct control of other devices within the Z-Wave system network e.g. Dimmer, Relay Switch, 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.


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. Wait for the configuration process to end. Sending relevant information may take even a few minutes.
  7. Wake up the device manually to speed up the configuration process.

 




FIBARO Motion Sensor provides the association of five groups:
1st Association Group – “Lifeline” reports the device status and allows for assigning single device only (main controller by default).
2nd Association Group – “Motion” is assigned to the motion sensor – sends motion detection and alarm cancellation frames to the associated devices.
3rd Association Group – “Tamper” is assigned to the tamper – sends tamper alarm and alarm cancellation frames to the associated devices.
4th Association Group – “Motion BC” is assigned to the motion sensor – sends motion detection and alarm cancellation frames to the associated devices. Provides backward compatibility with controllers not supporting Z-Wave+ protocol.
5th Association Group – “Tamper 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 Motion Sensor in 2nd to 5th group allows to control 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group, with the exception of “LifeLine” that 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.



FIBARO Motion Sensor provides the association of three groups:
1st Association Group is assigned to the device status – sending the BASIC SET control frame to the associated devices having detected motion.
2nd Association Group is assigned to the tamper alarm. Alarm frame will be sent to the associated devices once tampering is detected.
3rd Association Group reports the device status and allows for assigning a single device only (the main controller by default – the device reports its status to the main controller). It’s not recommended to modify this association group.

FIBARO Motion Sensor allows for controlling 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group, out of which 1 field is reserved for the Z-Wave network main controller.

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.

FAQ


The FIBARO Motion Sensor is a universal Z-Wave multi-sensor. Along with motion detection the device measures the temperature and light intensity. The sensor has a built-in accelerometer to detect any tampering of the device. The FIBARO Motion Sensor is a battery powered device, designed to be installed quickly and easily on any surface. The LED indicator signals motion, temperature level, operating mode and can be used to see if the device is within the range of Z-Wave network. The motion sensor can be used for lighting scenes and security monitoring systems.

Yes, it cannot be supplied in any other way. There is no built-in connector for a low voltage supply.

It is very simple. Motion Sensor can be configured to work as an earthquake detector by setting the parameter 24 value to 4. Reports with scale of the vibrations (dimensionless) will be sent at the time intervals specified in parameter 22.

You can set the value to be added to the actual temperature, measured by the sensor in parameter 66.

Motion Sensor’s sensitivity may be set in the first parameter. The lower the value, the more sensitive the PIR sensor is.

Yes, of course. Parameter 9 (night/day) defines the difference between night and day, in terms of light intensity, used in parameter 8.
Available settings: 1 – 65535
Default settings: 200 (200 lux)

Parameter 8 (PIR sensor operating mode) determines the part of the day in which the PIR sensor will be active. This parameter influences only the motion reports and associations. Tamper, light intensity and temperature measurements will still be active, regardless of this parameter settings.
0 – PIR sensor always active
1 – PIR sensor active during the day only
2 – PIR sensor active during the night only.

Parameter 80 (LED signaling mode) determines the way in which LED diode behaves after motion has been detected.
Values 1-9 = single long blink at the moment of reporting motion. No other motion will be indicated until alarm is cancelled.
Values 10-18 = single long blink at the moment of reporting motion and one short blink each time the motion is detected again.
Values 19-26 = single long blink at the moment of reporting motion and two short blinks each time the motion is detected again.

You have to adjust the motion sensor’s blind time (insensitivity) in parameter 2. After this period of time the sensor will be able to detect motion. The longer the insensitivity period, the longer the battery life is. If the sensor is required to detect motion quickly, the period of time may be shortened.

Actual range of the sensor can be influenced by environment conditions, but it is up to 7 meters. Its view-angle is very wide.

The LED glows in white for 10 seconds. Any motion detected thereafter extends the glowing by another 10 seconds.

Yes, you must change advanced parameter 80 value to 0

No, it is for indoor use only.

If the battery discharges quickly, please check the following conditions which may result in reducing the battery life:
• Wake up interval is too short – it is recommended to lengthen the interval.
• Temperature and light intensity reports are sent too frequently – modify the advanced configuration settings to decrease the frequency.
• If associated devices or the Z-Wave network main controller are disconnected from the power source it will cause the sensor to frequently attempt to reconnect to those devices which will result in shortening the battery life.

Current range of the sensor can be influenced by the environment conditions. Check for any moving objects within the sensor’s detection area, such as trees swaying in the wind, cars passing by or windmills. False motion alarms may be caused by moving masses of air and heat as well.

The FIBARO Motion Sensor allows for controlling 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group, out of which 1 field is reserved for the Z-Wave network main controller.

No, the FIBARO Motion Sensor can work only as a wireless Z-Wave device.
