Range test

FIBARO Smoke Sensor has a built-in Z-Wave network main controller’s range tester.

To make Z-Wave range test possible, the device must be added to the Z-Wave controller. Testing may stress the network, so it is recommended to perform the test only in special cases.

Follow the below instructions to test the main controller’s range:

  1. Press and hold the B-button
  2. Wait for the visual indicator to glow white and short acoustic signal to sound
  3. Release the B-button
  4. Wait for the visual indicator to glow violet
  5. Press the B-button again, briefly
  6. Visual indicator will indicate the Z-Wave network’s range (range signalling modes described below)
  7. To exit Z-Wave range test, press the B-button briefly

 

Z-Wave range tester signalling modes:

Visual indicator pulsing green – Smoke Sensor attempts to establish a direct communication with the main controller. If a direct communication attempt fails, the device will try to establish a routed communication, through other modules, which will be signalled by visual indicator pulsing yellow.
Visual indicator glowing green – Smoke Sensor communicates with the main controller directly.
Visual indicator pulsing yellow – Smoke Sensor tries to establish a routed communication with the main controller through other modules (repeaters).
Visual indicator glowing yellow – Smoke Sensor communicates with the main controller through the other modules. After 2 seconds the device will retry to establish a direct communication with the main controller, which will be signalled with visual indicator pulsing green.
Visual indicator pulsing violet – Smoke Sensor does communicate at the maximum distance of the Z-Wave network. If connection proves successful it will be confirmed with a yellow glow. It is not recommended to use the device at the range limit.
Visual indicator glowing red – Smoke Sensor is not able to connect to the main controller directly or through another Z-Wave network device (repeater).

Communication mode of the Smoke Sensor may switch between direct and one using routing, especially if the device is on the limit of the direct range.

Alarms and detection types

Fire detection

FIBARO Smoke Sensor responds to the physical presence of a smoke. The device checks every 10 seconds for a smoke. Once the level of smoke exceeds value set in advanced parameter 1, Smoke Sensor triggers an alarm.

Optical smoke detector used in FIBARO Smoke Sensor has 3 levels of sensitivity, compliant with EN 14604:2005. By default, the detector is set to the middle sensitivity level. Sensitivity level depends on the parameter 1 settings (modified only through the main Z-Wave controller).

Fire alarm is signaled by:

  • sending an appropriate alarm command to the Z-Wave controller
  • sending an appropriate alarm command to associated devices
  • intermittent sound
  • visual indicator blinking red

Once the fire alarm has ceased, the sensor checks whether the smoke has actually disappeared before getting back to normal operation, i.e. performing a self test each 10 seconds and checking for presence of smoke.

FIBARO Smoke Sensor is a multiple use device, however, for greater safety, it is recommended to replace the device with a new one after a fire occurrence.

If fire alarm is triggered, but the level of smoke did not exceed concentration equal to three times of the sensitivity set in parameter 1 (the individual levels of sensitivity are printed on the device casing), user can mute sound alarm by holding the B-button (temporarily reducing the sensor’s sensitivity).

Visual indicator will still indicate an alarm state by blinking red. If smoke level concentration is greater than three times of the sensitivity set in parameter 1, mute will automatically turn off and the device will alarm fire again (using visual and audible indicator).

Back To Top

Excess temperature detection

Apart from detecting presence of smoke, FIBARO Smoke Sensor has an additional function of informing of exceeding the programmed temperature threshold. The function is disabled by default in parameter 2 settings.

Excess temperature warning is defined by user in parameter 30 – set to 55°C by default. Excess temperature level can be also signaled by visual indicator glow (parameter 3) and short beep (parameter 4). Parameter 20 should not be set to 0 because such setting disables temperature measurements.

Back To Top

Malfunction detection

FIBARO Smoke Sensor can automatically detect a malfunction. The device performs a test every 10 seconds. If malfunction is detected (e.g. damaged smoke chamber) an intermittent sound signal will start and alarm will be sent to the Z-Wave network controller.

Once trouble alarm has been detected, it is recommended to dismount the sensor and:

  • check the power source (replace battery)
  • check whether the Smoke Sensor is exposed to direct light

If a malfunction alarm is continually reported, it is recommended to replace FIBARO Smoke Sensor with new one or contact with guarantor if the product warranty is still valid.

Self-test may be triggered manually:

  1. Make sure the device is powered
  2. Press and hold the B-button
  3. The visual indicator will glow white and the short alarm will sound
  4. Keep holding the B-button
  5. After 3 seconds from the first beep smoke chamber operation will be checked

Triggering fire alarm and beep mean positive result and should occur within 10 seconds. No fire alarm means that the sensor is malfunctioning.

When the self-test is triggered manually the Smoke Sensor sends control command to the Z-Wave network controller. The procedure will be performed at least as long as the B-button is not released (will be completed in up to 10 seconds after releasing the B-button).

Any service or repair must be carried out by the manufacturer. The expiry date of the device is indicated on its back.

Lack of Z-Wave range detection

When included in the Z-Wave network, FIBARO Smoke Sensor tests the network communication. By default the procedure is performed at each temperature report depending on parameters 20 and 21 settings. In addition, Z-Wave network communication test is performed during waking up. Lack of the Z-Wave network communication may be signaled by an intermittent alarm sound and visual indicator blinking violet.

By default sound and visual signals are disabled but you can enable it by changing values of parameters 3 and 4.

Once a FIBARO Smoke Sensor has reported no Z-Wave network communication, it is recommended to wake up the device by clicking the B-button. If it does not stop the alarm, Z-Wave networks operation and the main controllers operation need to be verified.

FIBARO Smoke Sensor will cancel the Z-Wave network communication alarm once it communicates with the network after manual or automatic wake up.

Configuration

Associations

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

Association groups for firmware 3.1 - 3.3

FIBARO Smoke Sensor allows for the associations of five groups:
1st Association Group – Lifeline. Reporting device state. Only one device – Z-Wave network controller may be set in this group. It’s not recommended to modify this association group.
2nd Association Group – Fire Alarm. Sending the BASIC SET control command once smoke is detected. Its value may be modified in advanced parameters (see section XVII). Group may control up to five on/off devices.
3rd Association Group – Tamper. Sending the notification NOTIFICATION REPORT (TYPE = BURGLAR, EVENT = PRODUCT COVERING REMOVED) to associated devices once enclosure opening is detected. Up to five devices supporting enclosure opening command (NOTIFICATION REPORT) may be included in this group.
4th Association Group – Fire Alarm. Sending the notification ALARM SENSOR REPORT (TYPE = SMOKE ALARM) to associated devices once smoke is detected. Up to five devices supporting fire alarm command may be included in this group.
5th Association Group – Tamper. Sending ALARM SENSOR REPORT notification (TYPE = GENERAL) to associated devices once enclosure opening is detected. Up to five devices supporting SENSOR ALARM REPORT command may be included in this group.

FIBARO Smoke Sensor allows for controlling 5 regular and 5 multichannel devices per an association group in groups 2-5 and one device in the 1st group.

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 up to a few hours depending on the previous configuration parameters settings.
  5. Wake up the device manually to speed up the configuration process

Advanced parameters for Smoke Sensor in version 3.2

Wake up interval:

Available settings: 0 or 21 600 – 65 535 (in seconds, 6h – 18h)
Default setting: 21 600 (6h)
At each wake up Smoke Sensor communicates with the main controller, updates parameters settings and the software if necessary. The Smoke Sensor will wake up at defined time interval and will ALWAYS try to communicate with the main controller. After each failed communication attempt, the sensor will retry to establish connection with the main controller after 60 seconds. After 3 failed attempts, the lack of the Z-Wave range alarm will be triggered. Longer time interval means less frequent communication and thus a longer battery life. The Z-Wave range alarm will be cancelled automatically, after first successful connection. Change of wake up interval value does not affect alarms or trouble signals operation.

Setting to 0 disables sending Wake Up Notification frame. Wake up may be still performed manually by a single B-button click or by sending Node Info frame (triple click the B-button).

There are 3 levels of sensitivity to smoke presence. Level 1 means the highest sensitivity. Rising the parameter value lowers the sensitivity to smoke presence.

FAQ


The FIBARO Smoke Sensor is a universal, battery-powered, optical Z-Wave smoke sensor. Smoke detection is signaled with siren and LED diode blinking. The optical sensor detects smoke at an early stage of fire, often before flames appear and temperature starts to rise significantly. Moreover, the device has a built-in temperature sensor, which can also trigger the alarm once the specified temperature threshold is exceeded. The FIBARO Smoke Sensor is designed to be placed on the wall or ceiling.

It’s lack of the Z-Wave range alarm. You can set the time interval of signaling in parameter 32.

Make sure communication parameters are set to default. Short polling time interval may cause such behavior.

1. Make sure the device is powered
2. Press and hold the B-button
3. The visual indicator will glow white and the short alarm will sound
4. Keep holding the B-button
5. After 3 seconds from the first beep smoke chamber operation will be checked
Triggering fire alarm and beep mean positive result and should occur within 10 seconds. No fire alarm means that the sensor is malfunctioning.

It is not possible. This device is the sensor only, not a Z-Wave siren.

It will work fine and it is considered acceptable, but the best position is always on your ceiling.

Look for the separate device in the interface, which reports the temperature.

No, the first generation (FGSS-001) allowed to be powered via 12/24V DC. FGSD-002 may be battery powered only.

Yes. It can work as a battery operated smoke detector. In fact it does not need to be added to any Z-Wave controller at all. It can just detect the smoke and signal alarm with siren. Of course if you add it to a Z-Wave controller, you will find whole spectrum of possibilities.

The principle of optical sensors operation is based on two diodes (transmitting and receiving). Transmitting diode works in the infrared range. Amount of the light outside does not matter.

Yes, but such functionality has been moved from advanced parameters to the interface of FIBARO System. Go to Advanced Configuration tab to set the value to be added to or deducted from the current temperature measured by internal temperature sensor in order to compensate the difference between air temperature and temperature under the ceiling.

No, battery powered devices are not able to do so.

You have to wait until smoke level drops.

FIBARO Smoke Sensor is always armed and ready to detect smoke presence.

The battery level report is sent at the same time as sensor’s wake up. You can wait specified period of time or perform manual wake up by triple clicking the B-button.

FIBARO Smoke Sensor allows for controlling 5 regular or 5 multichannel devices per an association group in groups 2-5 and one device in the 1st group.

Broadcast mode allows to send alarms to all devices within the FIBARO Smoke Sensor’s range with a priority over other communications.

Yes, you can disable them in parameters 3 and 4. Remember it does not apply to major alarms, like Fire alarm.

Try to adjust the sensitivity to smoke presence by setting the parameter 1 to 3 (LOW Sensitivity).
