Fibaro KeyFob

Forum rules

Questions about hardware that can be controlled by Indigo (but not through the interfaces and plugins listed). If Indigo doesn't support some bit of hardware you're interested in, and you don't find a 3rd Party Plugin for it, add it to this forum. Be sure to include links to as much information as you can find about it.

Note: adding it here does not mean we're going to add it - in fact it's possible one of our 3rd party developers may decide to write a plugin for it. We add hardware/features based on a lot of different factors beyond just having a request for it.

Re: Fibaro KeyFob

I am new to Z-Wave so I don't really know what I'm doing. But I have managed to install Indigo 7.1.1 and include 3 Fibaro Dimmer 2, and these work perfectly. The only problem is with the Fibaro Keyfob. I can get it included in Indigo, but only as a "Basic Wall Controller". So I don't have any way of configuring the buttons.

Here is the log from the controller inclusion:

   Z-Wave                          Syncing - complete

So it seems like my model of the Keyfob is not recognized by Indigo 7.1.1. I also tried the link to the z-wave library earlier in this thread, but I get an Access Denied error.

Does anyone have any ideas? All help greatly appreciated!

Re: Fibaro KeyFob

Hi Anders.

Just as an aside, you shouldn’t try links to old Zwave libraries later down the line; they’re test versions for folk to test whilst Matt/Jay roll them into a full update.

Although I don’t have a Keyfob, that log looks ok to me. Are you seeing anything in Log when you press buttons?

To react to button presses, you need a Trigger on “Zwave Command Received” > Keyfob > Button 2 Double Clicked, for example.

Re: Fibaro KeyFob

howartp is correct – it looks good to me too. Indigo is recognizing it as a FGKF601:

Z-Wave Syncing - retrieved manufacture and model names: Fibaro System - 010F, Keyfob (FGKF601) - 10011000

You just have to create the triggers to catch the button presses (and then define what action(s) you want to occur).

Re: Fibaro KeyFob

Aha! Thanks a bunch!
I was expecting to see some button options when I double clicked the device, but now I get it. I have set up my Keyfob to dim/brighten and it works as expected when my computer is running with the Aeotec Z-stick. It doesn't work when the computer is off. Is it possible to configure the Keyfob to send commands directly to each dimmer, so that it also works when Indigo is not running? I will probably setup a server of some kind later, but I only have a macbook for now.

Another question, it doesn't look like Indigo is receiving double clicks or triple clicks, only consecutive clicks. Is this as expected, or is it something I need to configure?

Thanks again for helping!

Re: Fibaro KeyFob

Zwave, and indeed Indigo, is primarily designed to be always on so you’ll lose loads of functionality if you bypass that.

You can use associations between devices if they support them, such that eg a motion sensor turns on a light directly as well as informing Indigo.

Re double clicks, there’s a discussion on that earlier in this thread.
