Fibaro Dimmer 2, duplicate devices!!

Post by Lilchamp »

I have just recently installed some Fibaro Dimmer 2 (FGD-212) units. When adding them as a new device, each dimmer ends up with a whole heap of "devices" (I'm running Z-Way 2.3.6). One example gives me all the following:

- Fibaro Dimmer 2
- Current consumption (26.1)
- Fibaro Dimmer (26.1)
- Fibaro Dimmer (26.2)
- Fibaro Heat Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Heat Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Power Management Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Power Management Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Power Management Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Power Management Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Power Management Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro Power Management Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro System Alarm (26.1)
- Fibaro System Alarm (26.1)
- Total consumption (26.1)

I understand the various names, and that there has to be two "Fibaro Dimmer" devices (because you can use two switches with the dimmer, 26.1 and 26.2), but why is there so many duplicate alarm devices? Can I disable all duplicates?

I found the same question in the Russian forum (viewtopic.php?t=25354), but as I don't speak the language, and Google Translate wasn't too helpful, I was hoping somebody could help me out here as well!

Fibaro produces many Power Management alarms like undervoltage, overvoltage, ... Looks Z-Way is not naming them correctly. Expert UI should show them as different event types

Where can I find these in the expert UI?

Many of mine as also triggered, and I know they are false, how do I reset them?

Version 3.0.0

Yes, but where do i find the event type list in the expert UI? Or child devices? All i see in expert is the main devices, cand find child/events anywhere?

You may use the following link:
http://(IP):8083/smarthome/#/zwave/devices/(device)
e.g.
http://192.168.0.41:8083/smarthome/#/zwave/devices/78

I think here you will find the different devices and can disable these you don´t need.

Thanks, but that one is in smarthome UI, is there a similar overview of child devices and events in the Expert UI?

It sounds like there is a place in the Expert UI to see this:

Not sure what Polto is meaning, I always use the link to rename and/or disable the devices.
Didn´t find another menu to do so in an easy way.

Think i found them under "Control" - "Notifications".

Many of them are status "ON" and event "unknown". Any way to reset this?
