  • Getting A FortrezZ MiMO2+ To Work With Homeseer

    In search for a contact closure sensor I bought a FortrezZ MiMO2+. My Homeseer interface recognizes it but nothing else. The relays turn on, momentarily. I know it sees a contact closure because I get a new time in the, "Last Change" column of HomeSeer Web Control.


    Has anyone successfully gotten the inputs on the MiMO2+ to read on HomeSeer? I want to be able to trigger an event(s).
    Thanks

    This is one device for some unknown reason that HST has not added support for....

    For the life of me I don't know why it's not supported... maybe rjh or macromark can answer this because many have asked for this many times.

      Thanks for the reply. I'm getting ready to box it up and send it back. It's a shame as the two inputs are full 8 or 12 bit analog to digital converters. If their output could be read by HS one could build a simple precision resister ladder and be able to detect multiple switch closures.

      Unless someone know of another option I'm look at using door window sensors (:.

      My application is very interesting, I'm integrating my Home Theater/Pro Tools studio using a great program, the Bome MIDI translator. Besides controlling MIDI is has IR learn/send. My last thing is to integrate MIDI with HS.
      Thanks

        All I can say is email HS support, call support give it a day or two for a response... then maybe return it...

        Sounds like an interesting project.

          I spoke to HS phone support, who are terrific, they suggested the forum. They did say that MIMoLite is supported. Go figure.

          It's a really an interesting project which has grown from 5.1 to 9.1.4! And, very, very automated. I just need to be able to talk to HS.

          Has anyone integrated the Z-Uno ( https://z-uno.z-wave.me/ ) to HS?
          Thanks

            If you need a simple Z-Wave contact closure sensor, you can use one of the Ecolink tilt sensors for this. They have screw terminals on the PCB. https://www.amazon.com/Z-Wave-Plated.../dp/B00HGVJRX2

              macromark Or I can use any number of OTHER z-wave controllers that support this device. Why are you pushing this to "use another device" rather than adding the support? I can even use this device with my ISY without issue!!!! and that controller has origins as a Insteon controller NOT z-wave.

                I had this same issue about 8 months ago. Opened a ticket with HomeSeer and a ticket with FortrezZ. HomeSeer support blamed it on FortrezZ and FortrezZ support blamed it on HomeSeer.

                I even sent my FortrezZ MiMO2+ to HomeSeer on my dime so they had one to test with in the hope that it would be fixed in a fairly short amount of time. HomeSeer did not guarantee they would be able to look at it, but I figured it was worth a shot. I never heard back from HomeSeer.

                The MiMO2+ is a really useful device. It is too bad that HomeSeer does not want to allocate the resources to try to resolve the issue.

                Maybe they are working on a similar device of their own.

                  Because our engineers are completely buried in other projects and do not have time to trouble-shoot this issue in the near future.

                    It's been a requested device for a LONG time and complete silence... every batch of new users this device comes up over and over again. I know all of the focus is on "mobile" but this is yet another one of the long outstanding issues that should have been fixed a long time ago. Not trying to be a PITA but there's a lot of these little things that can and should be addressed in parallel to the modernization effort. What good is a "Modern Looking" system if the devices people want to use don't even work?

                      I tried the Mimo2+ last May 2018. HomeSeer wasn't creating child devices for its two sensor binary devices. I returned it. I have over a dozen of the MIMOlite devices, which work fine and have been trouble free for years. I wanted to try the Mimo2+ since it's ZWave Plus (MIMOlite is only Z-Wave). But, Mimo2+ doesn't work with HomeSeer.

                      EDIT: BTW, one reason I like the MIMOlite is its configurability, and most importantly, is not a battery operated device.

                        +1. Been waiting to buy one of these for over a year, but won't do so until it is supported. My guess is that it would only take an hour or two to resolve given that other "hubs" support it properly. I'd love to see HS change the architecture of the z-wave plugin so that specific device "handlers" are external files (XML or JSON). That way others can create/update/modify them and no HS development time is needed in the future for these types of "bugs". rjh any comments on that?

                          Having the external device handler/driver capability would put HS on par with SmartThings, Hubitat, Vera, Home Assistant, OpenHAB, etc etc....

                            macromark Does this mean we should not expect any new device support to occur in the near future? Not being a butt, asking out of genuine curiosity.

                            Have you or rjh ever considered a system where the device definitions can be publicly created such as the SmartThings device handlers? This way the community can chip in with things like this.
                            Thanks,
                            Frank

                              I understand the issue DIY z-wave'ers are few and far between. I understand HS had a a/d, d/a at one time and sold one a month! Not a good way to keep the doors open.

                              macromark, a question, can more than one of these Ecolink tilt sensors be on the network at one time? TNX...s
