Fibaro double switch FGS223 is not posting it’s status when pressing the wall switch. I have tried to do everything now, but the result is always the same.
Fibaro thing shows up in the “inbox”. It can be configured as “thing” and creating the “items” works fine. I’m able to turn on and off the both switches from OH2 without any problems. But when ever I push the wall switch, the state of the light doesn’t update to OH2.
I am not sure whether this is OpenHAB problem or Fibaro hardware problem. All I know for sure is that the items states doesn’t update.
When I first discovered this problem the switch status update was slow. It could take up to ten minutes, before the switch state was updated. In order to fix this, I first removed all the items and then I removed also the thing. Since it didn’t solve the problem I removed the device form Z-Wave controller and did a new pairing.
After this I re-created all the “things” and “items” with a different names just to be sure the whole chain of “item” creation would be done with new names.
Now everything works like described: switch status won’t update to OH2, but I can still control both switches from OH2 and from the wall switch. The only difference now is that the late update is even slower than what it was before.
I started to monitor the log for Zwave controller StartFrames and FramsAknowledged mesages. I noticed that every single time when I press the Fibaro button 1 there is some messages sent to the controller. Same thing when I switch off the button 1, there are some messages transferred exactly that point. But when I do the same for button 2, there is no frames or acknowledge messages sent. This makes me wonder, if this issue is after all caused by a Fibaro switch instead of OH2.
I have several other Fibaro switches installed in the house. They all work fine and they update the status immediately to OH2. I have gone through all the possible settings for this item, but didn’t find anything that could cause this behavior. I also did a factory reset for the switch.
When I press the button on the fine working Fibaro switch, I can see in logs that the StarFrames counter will be increased by 1. After this I see the status update message for the Item and one more StartFrame message. This works like this every single time when pressing the button. But the faulty switch doesn’t work like this. There is some StartFrames -message after pressing the button number 1, but when pressing the button number 2, there will be no messages sent.
Is there any idea where to look up next?
