What is Z-Wave?

Z-Wave is the international wireless protocol for communication in the Smart Home. This device is suited for use in the region mentioned in the Quickstart section.

Z-Wave ensures a reliable communication by reconfirming every message (two-way communication) and every mains powered node can act as a repeater for other nodes (meshed network) in case the receiver is not in direct wireless range of the transmitter.

This device and every other certified Z-Wave device can be used together with any other certified Z-Wave device regardless of brand and origin as long as both are suited for the same frequency range.

If a device supports secure communication it will communicate with other devices secure as long as this device provides the same or a higher level of security. Otherwise it will automatically turn into a lower level of security to maintain backward compatibility.

For more information about Z-Wave technology, devices, white papers etc. please refer to www.z-wave.info.

Product Description

FIBARO Radiator Thermostat (Z-Wave) is a remotely controlled thermostatic head to control temperature in your room. It measures the temperature and automatically adjusts the heat level. It can be mounted without tools on three types of thermostatic radiator valves. You can create schedules via app to easily manage temperature throughout the week.

Prepare for Installation / Reset

Please read the user manual before installing the product.

In order to include (add) a Z-Wave device to a network it must be in factory default state. Please make sure to reset the device into factory default. You can do this by performing an Exclusion operation as described below in the manual. Every Z-Wave controller is able to perform this operation however it is recommended to use the primary controller of the previous network to make sure the very device is excluded properly from this network.

In Standby Mode the device is in deep sleep state allowing safe dismounting, transporting and low as possible battery consumption.
The device is shipped in Standby Mode.

Entering the device in Standby Mode will not factory reset the device nor will result in loosing any data.

To exit Standby Mode click the button once, the device will enter first installation procedure.


Battery and charging

The device is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery pack that can be charged via micro-USB port using standard 5V charger (not included).

When battery is low the LED ring will start to blink red. The device will also report low battery status of itself and dedicated temperature sensor (if paired) to the controller.

Make sure you are using certified charger Class II, which complies with parameters specified in the manual.

Do not leave the device unattended while charging.

Do not use cables longer than 3 meters for charging the device.

 

To charge the battery:

1. Connect charger to the micro-USB port.
2. During charging the LED ring will pulse red and valve control will be disabled.
3. When LED starts pulsing green, disconnect the charger.
4. The device will restore its previous operation.

Normal Schedules

 

The device allows to create multiple heating schedules to manage temperature in the room throughout the week. Schedules are created via controller interface or app.

  • Up to 253 normal schedules can be created,
  • The lower the schedule ID number, the higher the priority,
  • Schedules with higher priority override those with lower priority in case of overlapping schedules,
  • Schedules can be disabled without deleting it,
  • Schedules allow to set target temperature, fully open the valve or fully close the valve.

To create normal schedules user must specify:

  • Day of the week,
  • Starting time (hour and minute),
  • Duration,
  • Temperature setpoint in range 10-30°C (for HEAT mode),
  • One of the operating modes:
    • HEAT for setting temperature,
    • OFF for valve fully closed,
    • MANUFACTURER SPECIFIC for valve fully opened.

Override Schedule

Override Schedule is a special type schedule that has the highest priority; thus it overrides other schedules.

The Override Schedule starts right after setting and lasts for specified time, then it is removed and current schedule or normal operation is restored.

To create Override Schedule user must specify:

  • Duration,
  • Temperature setpoint in range 10-30°C (for HEAT mode),
  • One of the operating modes:
    • HEAT for setting temperature,
    • OFF for valve fully closed,
    • MANUFACTURER SPECIFIC for valve fully opened.

Override Mode can be enabled in two ways:

  • By turning the knob, while normal schedule is active. The LED ring will pulse with selected adjustment.
  • Via controller, by creating schedule with ID set 255, start time set to NOW and duration (in minutes/hours/days).

To exit Override Mode grab knob with your hand for 5 seconds.

 



Communication to a Sleeping device (Wakeup)

This device is battery operated and turned into deep sleep state most of the time to save battery life time. Communication with the device is limited. In order to communicate with the device, a static controller C is needed in the network. This controller will maintain a mailbox for the battery operated devices and store commands that can not be received during deep sleep state. Without such a controller, communication may become impossible and/or the battery life time is significantly decreased.

This device will wakeup regularly and announce the wakeup state by sending out a so called Wakeup Notification. The controller can then empty the mailbox. Therefore, the device needs to be configured with the desired wakeup interval and the node ID of the controller. If the device was included by a static controller this controller will usually perform all necessary configurations. The wakeup interval is a tradeoff between maximal battery life time and the desired responses of the device. To wakeup the device please perform the following action: FIBARO Heat Controller is a FLiRS device. The FLiRS device alternates between sleep mode and a partially awake mode in which it is listening beam signal. When device receives this beam, it immediately fully wakes up and then communicates with the controller or other Z-Wave device.

Quick trouble shooting

Here are a few hints for network installation if things dont work as expected.

  1. Make sure a device is in factory reset state before including. In doubt exclude before include.
  2. If inclusion still fails, check if both devices use the same frequency.
  3. Remove all dead devices from associations. Otherwise you will see severe delays.
  4. Never use sleeping battery devices without a central controller.
  5. Dont poll FLIRS devices.
  6. Make sure to have enough mains powered device to benefit from the meshing

Association - one device controls an other device

Z-Wave devices control other Z-Wave devices. The relationship between one device controlling another device is called association. In order to control a different device, the controlling device needs to maintain a list of devices that will receive controlling commands. These lists are called association groups and they are always related to certain events (e.g. button pressed, sensor triggers, ...). In case the event happens all devices stored in the respective association group will receive the same wireless command wireless command, typically a 'Basic Set' Command.

Association Groups:

Group Number Maximum Nodes Description
1 1 Lifeline

Configuration Parameters

Z-Wave products are supposed to work out of the box after inclusion, however certain configuration can adapt the function better to user needs or unlock further enhanced features.

IMPORTANT: Controllers may only allow configuring signed values. In order to set values in the range 128 ... 255 the value sent in the application shall be the desired value minus 256. For example: To set a parameter to 200 it may be needed to set a value of 200 minus 256 = minus 56. In case of a two byte value the same logic applies: Values greater than 32768 may needed to be given as negative values too.

Parameter 1: Override Schedule duration


Size: 4 Byte, Default Value: 240

Setting Description
10 - 10000 Time in minutes

Parameter 2: Additional functions

This parameter allows to enable different additional functions of the device.
Parameter 2 values may be combined, e.g. 1+8=9 means that Open Window Detector and LED indications when controlling remotely are enabled.

Size: 4 Byte, Default Value: 1

Setting Description
1 enable Open Window Detector
2 enable fast Open Window Detector
4 increase receiver sensitivity (shortens battery life)
8 enabled LED indications when controlling remotely
16 protect from setting Full ON and Full OFF mode by turning the knob manually

Parameter 3: Additional functions status (read-only)

This parameter allows to check statuses of different additional functions.
Size: 4 Byte, Default Value: 0

Setting Description
1 optional temperature sensor connected and operational
2 open window detected
