Axa windowopener controlled via Z-wave
AXA window opener via Z-wave | A little bit of soldering
Note :This project is developed by a Harold, tx for the information harold!
Actually we have tested to different models. First we have tested the AXA RV2900 with included infrared remote control. We have connected a FIBARO 2x1,5kW module to the print of the remote control (simulating a keypress)
This works as long as the print from the ir-remote is in front of the AXA window opener. Due to external influences like sunlight its not always very reliaable.
The better option is to connect the FIBARO module to the wired remote controller as shown in the picture below.
To do this you need the following parts of the AXA windowopener:
What else do you need?
- One or more AXA remote 2.0 windowunits
- Wallcontroller, Artnr 2902-80-98 (End of life but still available in the shops)
- Connectioncable, RJ25 kabel-stekker (included with Artikel 2902-80-98)
- AXA Adapter for the Remote 2.0 (7.5Volt, 800mA), Artikel 2902-31
- FIBARO FGS-221 2*1,5 KW insert module
To convert the unit to a Z-wave unit you need to assemble the AXA set without the wallcontroller.
This wallcontroller needs to be disassembled as follows:
Print of the wallcontroller, with the contacts for external control.
Signal Open = Bridge (1) and (2)
Signal Close = Bridge (1) and (4)
Nr 3 will not be used by us.
Note: When soldering pay attention that the coper parts cannot touch each other (dont cross the yellow lines :) ).
The last part of this project is to include the module in a Z-wave controller and change paramteres 4 and 5 of the module.
Both parameters will cause the module to switch of after a short interval (you can set the time im mS)
In the Vera interface this look like this.
