fibaro FGMS installation

Hi There, I'm trying to connect a Fibaro multi sensor, I am able to see it ZWAVE tree after including but cannot get any readings or status from it? and I am unable to a associate in the configuration menu.

Any ideas.


Ok I finally made some progress, not totally sure what I did differently but Ii woke up the Fibaro device (pressing the B button 3 times) and I was then able to associate the device with the controller.

so the presence side of the device is now working fine but the temperature reading has remained the same over night?


to enable status reports from sensors the controller must be added in multi sensor's association group 1.

This is a database of Zwave devices. Here you can find information about most of the available Zwave devices. Try tweaking parameters 60, 62, 64, 66. You can do that in the Configuration under Parameters tab.


unfortunately I'm having issues staying connected to the ZWAVE dongle now, this isn't going well for me.

When you say the multi sensors association group 1, in your manual it mentions group 3? I'm new to Zwave so excuse the stupid questions.

I do understand the parameters you mention but as I say currently I cannot get the dongle working, this has got worse since I added a Fibaro Smoke alarm?

Configuring Zwave can be a bit confusing at first. Yes, in the manual it says group 3 because the Fibaro devices we've tested had this group reserved for the controller. It depends on the manufacturer or the device.

So to be sure check the device manual or check the link I posted in the previous post and scroll to the end of the page. The group reserved for the controller is referred to as the 'lifeline' group.



HI Jure,

With my new S5 dongle things are a lot better, but i have now come up against anothe problem when trying to adjust parameters on the FGMS all works until I try and get a parameter, The following error is thrown up:


Error running GetConfigurationValue.. Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.. BOSCommon.Exceptions.NodeException: Exception of type BOSCommon.Exceptions.NodeException was thrown.

Any ideas?



Hi Andrew,

have you tried removing and re-adding the module? Does Zwave disconnect after this error? Can you get/set parameters on other modules?



Hi Jure,

Yes tried removing and re including, and yes the zwave then disconnects, if I stop and start the server it's back but can't get temp readings from fgms or fibaro smoke, I can get/set parameters from powered devices relays for example.

I've just tested the FGSM and a switch with the new Aeon Labs Gen5 dongle without any errors. Could you tell me the server version found in the Building node?


I was unable to recreate the issue with the old dongle and FGMS sensor. After inclusion of a new node I had to restart the configuration(stop/start server). I suspect there may be an issue with the new dongles. We're expecting the S5 dongle next week so I'll test it as soon as we get it.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

thanks Jure, did the thermostat/valve actuators get added to compatible zwave devices in the end?

I'm not sure what do you mean by thermostat actuators because FGMS works only as a sensor?

Sorry Jure,

shouldn't of posted that here, i was referring to zwave thermostat support you mentioned would be available in Q1.
