Agreed, I'm just finishing up the wiring on LED lighting for my deck.  There will be pictures...   Wink

Dean, Have put this on hold so you can focus on 5.1 but wanted to know if you want me to send you one of these units(to keep) so you have it when you find time?

I have tested it setup as a "Leviton/VRP03" and can send Invoke commands to change the canned light patterns.

Devices::FieldWrite
    P1=Holloween.InvokeCmd
    P2=SetCfgParam FibaroRGBW 72 7 1
    P3=True


Additionally, the controller supports up to four 0-10V passive analog sensors such as temperature sensors, humidity sensors, wind sensors, air quality sensors and light sensors. although I don't have this need but others may.

Would rather have CQC control my Zwave RGBWW lights directly instead of using my Hue or smartthings hubs. (one less device in the loop)

Thanks
Kevin

Sure, if you want to send one I can take a look at it.


RE: Fibaro RGB controller - Dean Roddey - 05-31-2017

I have broken this guy out and just added it to my Z-Wave network so that I can start poking around with it a bit.

Cool, I could get these to work. So should help prove nothing broke in transit.

Devices::FieldWrite
   P1=Zwave.InvokeCmd
   P2=SetCfgParam FibaroRGBW 72 6 1
   P3=True

Here are the ones I tested.. (value 6-10)
------------------------------------
Fire Place paramNumber:72, value:6,  size:1
Storm paramNumber:72, value:7,  size:1
Deep Fade paramNumber:72, value:8,  size:1
Lite Fade   paramNumber:72, value:9,  size:1
Police paramNumber:72, value:10, size:1


RE: Fibaro RGB controller - Dean Roddey - 05-31-2017

I've got some basic functionality in place, but it all seems wrong relative to the Z-Wave docs. I'm supporting it via the 'colored light' device class, so you set the color via HSV (which means it'll be settable via the color palette in the auto-generated interface and such.)

If I send the color components as indicated in the Z-Wave docs, red and green are transposed. If I flip those backwards the fibaro colors out correct. Is it possible that the guy is wired wrong? I can't imagine that the Z-Wave docs are that bad. It looks right according to the little sheet that comes with it, but somebody has to be wrong. I can clearly see what I'm sending out in the Z-Wave message, and I'm sending the right color components with the right component ids. But I have to flip red/green to get the right colors.

And, the other issue is that it never reports anything back but the green component. I query all three but it responds with the green component every time. I can't figure out what is going on there.


RE: Fibaro RGB controller - Dean Roddey - 05-31-2017

Nevermind about the querying of the values. I figured that one out, but the red/green transposition issue is definitely still there.


RE: Fibaro RGB controller - Dean Roddey - 05-31-2017

Well, I found other folks talking about the transposed Red/Green, so apparently it's the Fibaro. I'll put the driver back and you'll just have to wire the connections the other way.


RE: Fibaro RGB controller - Dean Roddey - 05-31-2017

OK, yeh, flipping the wires on the connection makes it work correctly. I still need to figure out why it doesn't respond to the basic off/on switch and multi-level switch command classes, but the color light stuff is working.


RE: Fibaro RGB controller - Dean Roddey - 05-31-2017

It is actually responding to the dimmer field, it's just that the dimming is very non-linear and it was changing so little that I didn't see it until I set the level quite low.

I need to figure out how to get this guy to send out reports, since I need to keep the dimmer, switch and color fields in sync and there's no direct connection there. If I don't get change reports that will be very difficult to make that work.
