Console

The gateway has an all-new console that can provide detailed information about ongoing processes concerning the Z-Wave network, Quick Apps, and scenes. This means that the new console aggregates all messages pushed by “print”, “debug”, “trace”, “warning”, “error” methods, whether they originate from a scene, a Quick App, or Z-Wave, e.g. general notifications, adding, removing.

Console overview

The Console is accessible from the sidebar. Click to unfold the console.

The console consists of 5 main elements:

1 – down arrow to hide the console,
2 – “Find” field to search for the phrase in the content of messages,
3 – “Tag” field to filter messages to show only those connected to the chosen, tag,
4 – “Type” field to filter messages according to their types: debug, trace, warning, error,
5 – reset button to clear the search and filter parameters.

 

Using tags for better console management

Console logs may be filled with different messages which may not interest us at the moment. To narrow down the messages to the interesting ones we may introduce tags in our scenes and Quick Apps to quickly find the right messages in the log.

Tags and Quick Apps

Quick Apps create tags automatically, e.g. QUICKAPP263, where 263 is the Quick App ID. However, it doesn’t mean you cannot create any new tags as you see fit.

Tags and Scenes

Scenes fallback to the default tag which is created on the basis of the scene ID, e.g. SCENE54.

That is why any output from that scene to the console will be tagged as SCENE + scene ID.

You can change the tag by specifying the first parameter in the fibaro.debug function, e.g. fibaro.debug(‘Your Tag’, ‘Content’).

Tags and Z-Wave

Filtering console logs may be useful while adding, removing, or reconfiguring Z-Wave devices. Setting tag to Z-Wave ensures that only Z-Wave related messages will be displayed in the console.

Beware!

Filtering with a tag is possible only after the first use of a given tag. That is why, if you want to catch some operations done by action with a given tag, you need to send a test message first so you will be able to choose the given tag.

Linked devices

Linked Devices combine several devices into one device. Using this function results in controlling the group of related devices as if they were one single device. The group will be presented in the interfaces as a single device. The gateway offers different Linked Devices types: Thermostats, Humidifiers, Video Gates, Switches, Blinds and Sprinklers.

 

Thermostats

Heating systems present at our homes are quite complex and they often do not offer any smart home capabilities natively. That’s why you can create a Linked Device, which can act as the given Thermostat.

How does the linked device work?

When you choose the main device for the thermostat it means that the actions of the switches selected in the Linked Device will depend on the readings from the main device.

Depending on the selected devices, different operating modes will be available. If you select a device (Switch/Wall Plug) as a heating device only, the linked device will support modes only for heating. If you select devices for cooling as well, then the Linked Device supports more modes, i.e.: Heat, Cool, Auto, Off. 

  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
  2. Go to > Devices.
  3. Click .
  4. Choose Other Device.
  5. Click Thermostat.
  6. Enter the name of the thermostat.
  7. Choose a Room.
  8. Choose the main device.
  9. Select heating and/or cooling devices.
  10. Save.
How to set schedules for this thermostat?

Heating schedule for this Linked Device is accessible in Climate panel.

You can read more about it in the Climate Schedules section.

 

Humidifiers/Dehumidifiers

There are many devices on the market which helps in humidifying or dehumidifying. However, these devices may not be smart, nor equipped with Z-Wave radio. Using Linked Devices enables us to create the Humidity Device which can still regulate the humidity at your home.

How does it work?

When you choose the main device for the Humidifier, it means that the actions of the switches selected in this Linked Device will depend on the readings from the main device:

If the humidity (%) drops below your desired humidity range , the devices selected as humidifiers will turn on.

If the humidity (%) rises above your desired humidity range, the devices selected as dehumidifiers will turn on.

If you have set both humidifier and dehumidifier, the Humidity Device will monitor and control the humidity within the given range. If you set only one device, only humidifier or dehumidifier, you won’t be able to set the full range, just the minimum or maximum threshold.

Creating Humidifiers
  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
  2. Go to > Devices.
  3. Click .
  4. Choose Other Device.
  5. Click Humidifier.
  6. Enter the name of the humidifier.
  7. Choose a Room.
  8. Choose the Humidity Sensor.
  9. Set desired humidity range.
  10. Select humidifiers and dehumidifiers.
  11. Save.

 

Video gates

Video gate is a combination of three devices which together can act as a video gate.

We set:

  • device which provide us the preview (camera),
  • sensor which invokes the bell (input for bell push),
  • actor which can activate the door lock or gate (output to open the gate).
Creating Video Gates
  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
  2. Go to > Devices.
  3. Click .
  4. Choose Other Device.
  5. Click Video Gate.
  6. Enter the name of the video gate.
  7. Choose a Room.
  8. Choose the Camera.
  9. Select Input for bell push and Output to open the gate.
  10. Save.

 

Switches (a group of switches)

Advanced and complex smart homes often consist of many switches placed within close areas which we want to control at once. Instead of making a scene which will coordinate the operation of all switches, we can group switches into one Linked Device, so all selected device will follow the actions of the “Master Device”.

 

The Linked Device may act as a device of a few types:

RGBW Controller – linked devices follow parameters such as brightness, color, and power state.

Binary switch – linked devices follow the power state of the master device (appropriate for simple switches, smart plugs).

Color controller – linked devices follow color parameters of the master device.

Multilevel switch – linked devices follow the voltage output of the master device (appropriate for Dimmers).

Creating Switches (grouping)
  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
  2. Go to > Devices.
  3. Click .
  4. Choose Other Device.
  5. Choose Switches.
  6. Enter the name.
  7. Choose a room.
  8. Choose Devices, Master Devices and Device Type (RGBW Controller, Binary switch, Color controller, Multilevel switch).
  9. Save.

 

Blinds (a group of blinds)

If we have more blinds or awnings in the same area we usually control at once, it is a good idea to grup them in one device. All blinds in that group will follow the master device of our choice.

Usually, devices such as Roller Shutters support few devices of such type, so we need to select appropriate role for the main device:

  • blind without positioning,
  • blind with positioning,
  • venetian blind,
  • garage door without positioning,
  • garage door with positioning.
Creating Blinds (grouping)
  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
  2. Go to > Devices.
  3. Click .
  4. Choose Other Device.
  5. Choose Blinds.
  6. Enter the name.
  7. Choose a room.
  8. Choose Devices (all that you want to group).
  9. Choose Master Device (the one that other devices will follow).
  10. Set the Device Role according to your devices:
    • Blind without positioning,
    • Blind with positioning,
    • Venetian blind,
    • Garage door without positioning,
    • Garage door with positioning.
  11. Save.

 

Sprinklers

If you don’t have dedicated watering devices that support Z-Wave or other wireless technology, you can create Sprinklers using Linked Devices.

To create a Sprinkle you need a watering device, for example, a switch connected to a solenoid valve. Optionally, you can add a soil moisture sensor, which will stop watering whenever the set humidity level is reached.

Once you set your Linked Device, you have to configure the watering schedule in the Garden panel. You can read more about it in the Garden Care section.

Creating Sprinklers
  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
  2. Go to > Devices.
  3. Click .
  4. Choose Other Device.
  5. Choose Sprinklers.
  6. Enter the name.
  7. Choose a room.
  8. Choose watering devices.
  9. Select soil moisture sensor (optional).
  10. Set default watering time.
  11. Set humidity level to turn off watering.
  12. Save.

Available operators:

  • AND
  • OR
Creating Binary sensors
  1. Open the Configuration Interface.
