    Fibaro implant

    Hi,
    does anyone use the new FIBARO implant ?
    My implant arrived today and I have some questions.
    Regards,

    Hi Fischi,
    I have one and have successfully added it to my z-wave network in Homeseer. However I can only seem to get Homeseer to recognise 1 of the 2 output channels. Hoping someone else has had more success and can help with import/setup to get both o/p channels up and running.
    Regards,
    Aljrob

      interesting... hadn't seen this what are you going to do with it?

      looks like it's not available in the US yet.

        It's intended to replace an existing Qubino dual relays module in an electric gate opener. 1 output needed to enable/disable an entry detector loop, the second is to manually force the gate to open on demand.

        The Qubino module works well for this, but I'd hoped to use the smart implant to do this and add a few sensors also, including amongst other things sensing when the gate is opened, ambient outdoor temperature temperature.

        At the moment though only one of the outputs is showing in Homeseer when I include in the z-wave network.

          Has anyone integrated their home alarm panel with the Fibaro Smart FGBS-222?

          I found this interesting YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oRys_l_bGM, and was wondering if someone had a similar build using HomeSeer?

          I am not interested in controlling my alarm panel, in fact I'd prefer not to, only to read status and changes.

            Yes I have done it. Annoying the FGBS-222 only shows one input on homeseer - not sure why??

              barto to ; A FGBS-001 broke and need replacement , but they are not available anymore , the replacement would be the FGBS-222.

              I would need 2 inputs (reed switched/sensors) and one external temperature.
              You're sayaing , only 1 input is working , and what about external temperature sensor? you have any info?

              Thanks,
              Cor

                I had similar problem last year and bought the FGBS-222 anticipating that it would be an improvement on the old FGBS-001. It wasn't. I am able to use the input to monitor the status of a smoke alarm (the main purpose I needed the device for) but could never get the external temperature sensors recognized in HomeSeer. I tried querying with Fibaro support but they are never very interested in helping if you are not using their own controller.
                These new devices have been out for probably at least 12 months and maybe Fibaro have a firmware fix by now but no way of getting firmware updates from Fibaro unless you are using their controllers. I am currently looking at Shelly devices as replacement for these Fibaro implants as, in my view, these are no longer fit for purpose (at least with HomeSeer).
                Hope that helps.

                  Thanks ,

                  I saw they have an "implant / universal sensor" kinda thing as well ..... just ordered some shelly device ..... curious how they perform vs Z-wave.

                  *edit*: using now 3 of those Shelly- uni's and they perform really well. 2 inputs . 2 outputs, couple of temperature sensors anADC sensor. In short , a very good replacement.

                    Just purchased one.. wish I had seen this first. Likewise, only 1 input working in Homeseer
