FIBARO Rollershuttermodule V2
Z-wave module with powermetering
With this smart shuttermodule you add smarthome functionality to you curtain or blinds. The switch will still work as well. Maybe you should use a special momentary switch.
Its even possible to use a single button, like the one you have in your garagedoor. After including the module in your smarthome controller you can use your smartphone or tablet to controll it, Even away from home. Even more fun is to use it in scenes so it will happen automaticly. The module is only 2mm thick and should fit behind the switch when the patress box is about 50mm deep. It will be connected to a blue, brown and black wire.
When you use the module in combination with windows that can open, than you might want to use a scene and an door/window sensor to check weather its open to precent a crasch. We have put some code at the end of this page.
Its even possible to controll venetian blinds with this module.
Another nice feature is the scene activation option
By a double or tripple click you can tell the smarthome controllerto activate a scene. For example. A single press will close the curtain and a double click wil turn of all the lights in the house.
When using the rollershutter, you want to be sure to have the windows closed. To check this and to automaticly open the window again when the window is open, you can use the following scene (you need to adjust the ID's for you're own devices).
21 value -- This is the ID of the Rollershutter
local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger();
( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(117, "value")) > 0 ) -- 117 is the ID of the door/window sensor
startSource["type"] == "other"
fibaro:call(21, "open"); -- When the door/window sensor is activated then the window will abort closing and open immediatly
Unfortunatly it only works when using the app and not the local button.
