    If it can help someone, I installed this morning that Fibaro smart implant, with a DS18B20. Had a problem, temp switched between internal ( module) and external temp. Found the problem. If you configure HS to pooling the temp every 60 sec, it will then report the internal temp probe, witch is very different of my pool water probe, varying every 60 sec from 24 to 32 degrés. I then put no (0) pooling interval in HS ZWave PI, and problem solved. Just reporting temp from external probe ( check parameters 67 and 68 in setting of that device).

      Thanks for this!

        Why overpaying for this Fibaro stuff and run an outdated Zwave network denounced by many here???

        Here is what I did to accommodate 6 (six) DS18B20 temperature probes in WiFi environment.

        ESP8266 Board and power supply $10
        Zumungo software www.zumungo.com for $8 (software supports up to 20 sensors) add $4 for relay control

        The software reports the temperature in JSON format that is easily parsed in HS3 or HS4 using Big5 PI. You select how frequent the reports are. You select the media - HTTP, TCP or MQTT for the reports.

        Furthermore, the software allows temperature driven control of relay(s) if you pick ESP8266 based relay board such as Shelly1 for example.

        Attached is a picture of wall mount motion and temperature sensor that I did myself. It is based on Shelly1 (cost about $10) plus Zumungo software and fits into an exiting wall switch.

        best thing is that Zumungo uploads to Shelly hardware without any wires totally over the air. Furthermore Zumungo allows for re-assignment of the very limited number of available pins incl Rx and Tx pins for general purpose I/O pins.

        (not shown on the picture but I tested with 6 sensors and one ESP8266 board only)

        Not to brag too much but I have the device shown on the picture in 6 rooms acting as both thermostat for the HVAC and motion/presence detector for HomeSeer to control lights etc. Cost is about $25 per room for WiFi controlled thermostat and WiFi motion sensor combo.

          Because the DIY stuff wired into electrical circuits stops payment by insurance companies if it is found out during a fire investigation.

          Not everybody can afford to run that risk and prefers to stick to certified devices.

          PS: If you had your DIY results inspected and approved by city then that qualifies as there is no stipulation that you need to use a professional, but it can be difficult to navigate that process without one.

            I do agree and actually I have shun away from other projects for that reason. However the device shown above uses a commercial product "Shelly1" that is certified. Shelly1 is the only "thing" connected to the electrical circuits of the house. Furthermore, Shelly1 has dedicated pins for connecting sensors that are properly documented and part of the certification. In that sense Shelly1 is not modified, in original plastic enclosure, not broken, no extra soldering to it except for using the pins as intended.

              That's good, and yes the low-voltage world is shocking unregulated for a lot, so you should be good on that side. Just figured I toss out that warning in case somebody gets really crazy on the DIY side and ends up in tears when insurance denies their valid claim. The other solution is to make sure that in case of a fire there is no evidence left to gather 😈
