Fibaro Motion Sensor (FIBEFGMS-001-ZW5)
Hi Patrick ,
i just got a new fibaro motion sensor (FIBEFGMS-001-ZW5).
The Firmware of my sensor is v3.5.
This is the support page of the device: https://manuals.fibaro.com/motion-sensor/
I added it to my devices and want the sensor to turn lights on and off. Basically i want to turn on lights when someone enters a room and turn off the lights when the person leaves.
When motion or vibration is detected, the event history shows "Fibaro Motion Sensor: Burglar Alarm went off!". (like stated in an earlier post). I can use this event to turn on lights/ start a recipe.
But: After an "alarm cancellation delay" of 30 sec (Parameter 6) the sensor should cancel the alarm when there is no movement.
This event is not shown in the event history. Edit: the alarm cancellation is also displayed as "...: Burglar alarm went off!" in the event history, see next post.
Therefore i can not use the sensor to turn off the light after the person has left the room.
Furthermore i would like to know whether motion OR vibration is detected (and see this in the event history).
Please check that.
Hi Patrick Jeff ,
I noticed somothing else thats buggy (and bugs me): The alarm cancellation timer (Parameter 6) is set to 30 seconds. This basically means if the sensor senses no motion for 30 seconds it send a notification about the alarm cancellation to the controller.
It seems, that "all" reports of the motion sensor are summarized under "...: Burglar alarm went off!". This leads to the following buggy situation: If the light is turned on by the sensor, and i turn it off within those 30 seconds, the alarm cancellation report is interpreted as "...: Burglar alarm went off!" and the light goes back on.

Today, I've tried to reset my Z-Wave controller to re-add all my Z-Wave devices and set up the Z-Wave devices again from the beginning.
Unfortunatelly the motion sensor remains in the device list and is listed in the "living room". When i try to change the room of this device comes a message: "There was something fishy going on: "n is undefined"". When i try to use the device exclusion, the device remains in the list.
Also the sensor is shown under "offline devices - plugged in?".
How do i get rid of that?

Open the context sensitive menu of your device and select Delete. This will start the exclusion process. If you are unable to exclude the device, use Force Delete to remove the device. Your device should be removed this time.
You should do another reset z-wave controller. I would not be surprised if your device reappears. In that case, you are having a Phoenix device.

At the moment I can not start any actions based on the values of this sensor. But I think this is a general problem Neeo currently has - Starting actions based on sensor values.
Why is it not possible to start recipes based on the values of this sensor? Is this a general problem or do i really need to factory reset my brain?
The only problem is that we don't see any progress.
Winter is coming and the radiators are not working.
Motion Sensors or any sensors at all are not working.
Can you see the power consumption of any switch?
Can you move the roller shutter half way down?
Nothing really works, you can add the devices but you are not able to really use them as long as it is not as simple as an on/ off switch.
And the only answer you get is that they are working on it (in many cases since ages) or they move the topic to the vote section.
