Inclusion

You always start including devices closest to the hub and work outwards, this will help build the network. 

  1. Turn on the power to the device.
  2. Open the Futurehome app, choose Settings - Devices - + Add new Device - Z-Wave.
  3. Start inclusion on the Futurehome App, check this link for more info.
  4. Select "Add a Z-Wave device" then "Normal inclusion" and leave "include known devices faster". unchecked (If the device does not work properly, try to learn the device without "learning known devices faster" being ticked off).
  5.  Press the "B" button quickly or three times within 1.5 seconds or the connected switch on the S1 input.
  6. It should appear “Device Found, Configure” (press more than 3 times, 3-10 if not included).

  7. The unit will show up with 3 channels, use channel 1 and not channel 0. Channel 0 should be left without room and without functionality. Device channels are available during advanced setup. See more about what the different channels are below.

  8. Name your device, such as “Ceiling lights”.
  9. Specify in which room it is mounted.

  10. Then press Save.

Channels

When including a Fibaro switch it will appear with 3 channels:

  1. Channel 0 is the main unit itself, where association, parameter and settings are set on units.
  2. Channel 1 is the switch itself, this channel is to be used in the app for controlling connected load, eg a light.

  3. Channel 2 is the S2 input on the unit. If you have a switch connected to S2 you will be able to use association to wirelessly control one or more other devices. In the future you will also be able to use this input to set mode and shortcut eg. 

Testing the device

As soon as the unit is included in the system a quick test should be run. Turn the appliance on/off with both the switch and Futurehome app. 

Change type of switch

By changing parameters 20 to 0 one can use pulse spring switch rather than OFF / ON switch.

Deletion/Exclusion

Sometimes you want to delete a learned device or re-insert it. To delete the device from your Smarthub, do the following:

  1. Go to settings.

  2. Press devices.

  3. Remove device.

  4. Start exclusion.

  5. Smarthub is now in exclusion mode; Quickly press 3 times within 1.5 seconds on the "B" button or connected switch on the S1 input. The device is now deleted from Smarthub.

Start over again to add it.

Reset

When the device is deleted (excluded) from Futurehome Smarthub, it will be reset to factory settings. However, should you have problems with the device you will be able to reset it without using Futurehome Smarthub. Note that if it is learned in Smarthub, it will "hang" again in the system if it is not deleted (excluded) first.

  1. Turn off the device fuse.

  2. Remove the device from the box.

  3. Turn on the fuse again.
  4. Press and hold the B button to enter the function menu.
