Fibaro RGBW Controller 2

I cannot find support for Fibaro’s rgbw controller 2. Anyone who knows if there are any plans to implement that and if so, what’s the timeline?

Must have been asleep, didn’t even know they made a new one :joy:
but anyway, Athom never works with a timeline, if there are enough people that request it (click!) they will implement it fast, if not a lot of people request it, it will not get implemented fast.

Or of course a community member can write support for it.

EDIT: quick google makes it almost the same as the old rgbw controller, just added scene activation for all 4 inputs and security 2 (which Homey doesn’t support, yet), don’t see that enough reason for the extra 15 euro’s that it costs

Thanks for the input Caseda!

The request link seems broken “Dynamic Link Not Found”, any other link in stock? :slight_smile:

I made the mistake to assume it was supported and I have already bought the controllers. Not sure if I can return them now when they’re already used…

Do I understand you right that the RGBW controller 2 requires a security level that is not yet supported on the Homey? If so, I guess it will not be solved soon. If not, would you have any guidance what would be needed to the existing currently supported controller device code, clone and make the needed changes for it to work?

"Dynamic Link Not Found
Short URL (https://goo.gl/forms/WyLpQodlV9jtghPk1) not found

If you are the developer of this app, ensure that your Dynamic Links domain is correctly configured and that the path component of this URL is valid."

It doesn’t need it, any device can be included unsecure, just means the data between Homey and the device is less secure then it could be, but for a light I guess isn’t too too important.
I’ve fixed the link in my original post, guess the shortened links are temporary.

Ps, I’m not the main developer, only been contributor

Are there some solutions for this?

I have 8 of them and can’t use them with the homey

I just bought the previous RGBW Controller. Maybe you can return them?

I don’t can bring them back.
So I hope that someone come with a solution.
:muscle::v::facepunch::+1:

There are only 2 solutions, create your own driver, or create a device request at the developer of the app, which is in this case Athom

I already did a device request bud i hope more wil do the request!
I’m not a developer so i hop this community wil help as well for a solution.

I’ve just hit the request link as well.

Also, forked the Fibaro repo and started exploring adding support for the controller 2 myself, comfortable coding but no experience with z-wave or how i go about working out what changes are required form the original controller.

Found some info here re command classes: https://products.z-wavealliance.org/products/3589

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!

Nice shaz,

I hope you will find it. I have try to unther stand what is in the commons classes bud sorry I’m just a noob

@GvanDongen From what I can see, support has since been added to the Fibaro app.

@Thorarin,

I can’t find it in the app my version is v.2.2.8.
I only see RGBW Controller no RGBW Controller v2


And it is not in the supported devices list.

You’re right. I must have gotten it confused with the Dimmer 2 somehow when I checked :crazy_face:
However, both products seem to have the same product ID, and I’ve read about people successfully using v2 with Homey. With the same product ID, the existing Homey driver should pick up the device.

Cannot add the RGBW controller V2 as well… Its product code is FGRGBW-442, which is not in the supported list. Version 1 ends on 441.
The inclusion process hangs after the second triple push on the button. After approx 30 seconds the flashing LED in the controller extinguishes and the app continues displaying “Een ogenblik geduld, je apparaat wordt toegevoegd” (Patience Please or something) forever…

follow this good advice.

Already did that. And waiting patiently for the addition, and a number of other fixes/improvements.

FYI and that of others, and maybe a little bit off-topic: Athom tells me that due to long-term sickness they are running behind with bug-fixes and improvements.
But as a customer/consumer/buyer of a €399 piece of equipment I do expect them to deliver proper and timely support, regardless of internal problems, however sad they are. I think I am not unreasonable expecting this, and do sincerely hope that they come up with solutions for the issues that are existing, and will be able to build a more stable system. It would be a pity if people turned their back on Homey this project/company failed!
