FGS-223 no Power Events

Post by vinisz » 06 Jan 2020 18:25

I have several FGS-223 devices (FIBARO Double Switch 2)
They do work fine, however one big problem.
There are no power events registered (nor they are outputted via the API)
However, when I turn the switch on, I see the actual power value.
Why are there no events registered for this device ? now I cannot view the power usage over time.
Expected outcome: Device power events correctly registered in zway server.

I already tried changing parameters, enable/disabled hiding events.
It does not work on all of my Double switch 2 devices, but it does work for all the fibaro dimmer devices.

Do you mean the notifications on overload/overheat or just events On/Off in the event log?

As I understand, the latter assumption is correct. Looks it is devices specific, so remote access is needed to check it.

Hi Poltos,

No, On/Off is logged correctly (left light in the pictures) but I mean the actual power values in Watt, these are not logged/vissible

I`m wondering about the events icon, shouldn´t it be a history icon? Makes more sense for power over time......

This means the device is not reporting it to the controller. This might be depending on the device configuration.

Sorry, but I do not think I fully agree.
I had some other controllers (fibaro HC2, homeseer, domoticz) and in there I have not seen this problem.
Also, when looking in the Zniffer, this is reported from the device when switched on (and I think the "Meter report = Power report ?)

09.01.2020 19:49:25 14:1 205:0 - -82 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:25 14:1 205:0 - -82 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:25 14:1 205:0 - -82 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:25 14:1 205:0 - -82 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:24 14:1 205:0 - -69 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:24 14:1 205:0 - -69 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:24 14:1 205:0 - -69 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, 00, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:13 14:1 205:0 - -69 dBm - I Meter Report (21, 32, 00, CC, 00, 00)
09.01.2020 19:49:11 14:1 205:0 - -69 dBm - C I Switch Binary Report (FF)
09.01.2020 19:49:11 14:1 205:0 - -69 dBm - I Switch Binary Report (FF)

Also, as shown in the pictures before, I do receive the value in the GUI, only the values are not stored.

Please help me understand. You receive Meter values and see them in the UI, but they are not stored? What does it mean?

As shown in the pictures above.
When I "power on" a device, the UI shows the power reading of that device at that specific moment. (20 watts for example)
When I turn the device off, that power reading goes to 0 watts, so that works.
However, when I press the calendar Icon on that device it says "sorry, no events to show" while I expect it to show the power readings from the past, like with Fibaro dimmer devices.
