Fibaro FGR-223 Rollershutter 3 % status updates

Openhab 2.5.4 on raspbian
Fibaro rollershutter 3 frg-223 FW5.1
2.5.4 openHAB Add-ons :: Bundles :: ZWave Binding

10:12:55.601 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemCommandEvent ] - Item ‘shutter_bad_julie’ received command 100
10:12:55.628 [INFO ] [arthome.event.ItemStatePredictedEvent] - shutter_bad_julie predicted to become 100
10:12:55.643 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - shutter_bad_julie changed from 0 to 100
10:12:57.341 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - shutter_bad_julie changed from 100 to 8

So it only sends one status update after 1 sec … time to move from 0% to 8%, but it doesn’t send final/end status “changed from 8 to 100” when rollershutter is at 100% …

When real/physical buttons are used … no zwave status % update is send (?)

(Also have an old Fibaro Rollershutter 2 frg-222 and there both cases are ok)

Saw workarounds with REFRESH and so … but is there a real solution for his?
So that FRG-223 does send status itself?

Tried that … but no improvement :

From 0 to 100

Rollershutter shutter_bad_julie “Julie Rolluik Bad [%d %%]” {channel=“zwave:device:e6a56118:node5:blinds_control1”}

Try changing the poll time to a higher value.

Full movement takes 20sec and max that can be set is 15sec poll
(this also doesn’t solve the physical switch status)

12:28:09.685 [INFO ] [smarthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - shutter_bad_julie changed from 0 to 32

(15sec to reach 32%)

At end of the motion it should send status update (?)

I am out of ideas.
Please note that this device with firmware version 5.0 has general issues. You will need at least firmware version 5.1.

ok thx … and FW is at 5.1
Did set polling interval to 60sec for now as workaround.
Hope @chris will have a look

Please can you provide a debug level log for this. What I can’t tell is if the updates are from polling, or if the updates are coming from autonomous association notifications (which should be the case, but possibly this isn’t happening).

Hi Peter,

have you ever found a working solution?

My FGR-233 (FW5.1) is working pretty good. When I send command UP the blinds are moving up full open (0), but then reported 41. On DOWN they are closing full(100), but reported 93. When I send 35 it moves to the position I want, but reports 52.

BTW at that position the blinds are fully closed, but opened as much as needed to let the air flow thru. The lowest blind has not moved in this position at all. I figured out 35% is the value to bring the blinds in this position by try and error.

Any hint how get the readings more reliable would be highly appreciated.

best regards

Did you

Hi sihui,

Thanks for the hint. I think that’s the right direction, but the maximum value for the poll delay is 15000 (=15 sec.). The blinds needs about 30 sec. for a full run.
In the log you can see the polling is done after 15 seconds and the blinds reported 58%, which is pretty ok for that time. 15 seconds later the motor stopped, but the state is not updated anymore.
Do you know, if this 15000 limit is from the device or from the thing definition and could be changed?

Neither - it’s defined in the binding. If it’s too short at 15 seconds, you probably should just disable it as it’s meant to provide a quick poll after the command and long delays were never intended.


Hi Chris,
disabling the poll solved the issue. Thanks a lot for the advise
