I will open it again tomorrow after work and let you know. That’s if not someone else gives you this info meanwhile.
Wow, that would be great, please measure all PCB’s and speakerassembly (mainboard, powersupply) including drilling holes.
Also the height of the mainboard, please.
Wondering if there is no technical easing athome could provide?
I am also very interested in such housing
Together with @robertklep I popped the hood of my development Homey yesterday evening and installed two white Zigbee / Z-wave antenna’s…
One of the antenna’s still has some paper tape on it to distinguish the different versions.
Zigbee (2.4 Ghz) antenna used:
Z-wave (868 Mhz) antenna used:
how much if you make it for me? XD
Special price for you: €399
inclusive a new homey?
Well, for me, yes
Looks great guys!!
I think that these enhancements are far more interesting than a Homey with more RAM and a faster CPU…
Right, there we go… just ordered these.
so 399 and i have an homey pro with better range and microphones XD
if you are serious i think i will hire you guys!
No, for €399 you buy me a Homey Pro, and I will mod your Homey for free!
hmm to bad.
For those that are about to go ahead with a z-wave antenna mod, here is something I’ve experienced regarding the antenna shield connected to GND.
Initially, I did not connect the antenna shield to GND. You can notice this in the above photos. As per my posts, the z-wave improvement exceeded my expectations.
Then, I decided to connect it. From here, big problems. The z-wave mesh was changing all the time like every minute! Devices were responding sporadically only. Very weird, perhaps some interference. I definitely picked up the right GND on one point on the PCB, I checked 10 times.
Then I disconnected it and all back to normal.
I’ve seen a photo on this forum where someone has connected the shield to the opposite terminal of the original z-wave antenna. Actually that terminal is floating (connected nowhere) only used to hold in place the original z-wave coil antenna. So no point to have it there unless you want to prop the shield wire somewhere, I heat shrink mine.
After reading a bit more about RF antennas, I’ve decided to cut off the original z-wave antenna. I did it in such way that I can anytime solder it back.
From here, the reception has gone even a bit better. So I won’t solder it back.
Your mileage might vary… good luck.
P.S. I know a couple of installers that replace the z-wave antenna from the Fibaro HC2 with a high gain antenna. So don’t cry that only Homey has a bad z-wave range.
