Fibaro Dinner 2nd Channel Usage

Hi everyone,

I’ve just installed my first Fibaro Dimmer switch into my switch. I’m using a retractive 1-way switch. Everything is working brilliantly.

I am now in the process of adding a motor to a blind in the same room. I’m trying to figure out a way to have a physical switch that can control the blinds. I have one near the window but I also want one near the light switch as it’s hard to reach the window.

I don’t want to add another wireless switch like the aeotec WallMote as I think it looks tacky.

My question is: the Fibaro Dimmer module has channel S2, which I am currently not using as I only have one light in the room. Is there a way that I could wire S2 into a 2-way switch, but not connect it to a load. Would openHAB be able to see the second switch being pressed?

The idea is I can then create a rule that fires the blinds up and down when the second button is pressed?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Yes, that’s possible. Openhab can see the second switch and it can be used in rules

You should use the zwave parameter to use scene activation for the S2 input, then you can use
{ channel=“zwave:device:xxxxxxxx:nodeyy:scene_number” } and check for single, double and even triple clicks (see Fibaro manual).
