Fakro z-wave windows?

Great news. Thanks for the heads-up Martijn!

Thanks for the news Martijn! I’ve just installed two ZWS12 devices in a new house and today got them powered up only to find they aren’t recognised by the app. Do you have any contact detail you can share from Fakro or a mailing list they will update with news on the app? Right now I can open and close the windows with on/off but nothing more than that. Hoping the Fakro app will have more granular control.

It should have! I can’t share any contact details, but I’ll let you know once I find out when the app arrives.

That’d be great thanks. Hoping for more functionality than just open and closed :blush:

Half open or closed probably :wink:

I have also ordered the screens and shades, so I want it to work too!

Have you seen any progress on the Fakro app yet? I’ve been looking in the Homey apps but nothing has appeared yet. Hoping you might have some news @Martijn_C

Yes, I’ve been in contact last week. The thing is that testing the app (by Athom) takes a long time. They have to get all products delivered, tested, code adjusted, etc. But, it is being tested right now.

Thanks for the update, that’s great news.

That is great news, really looking forward to controlling my skylight!

Any news of the release of the Fakro app?

It is still being tested. Trust me, they’re hating me for pushing right now, but the process is extremely slow. Some things didn’t work within the app and now it’s back to the developer.

It looks like a V5 app has been released, but only with a limited number of products (ARZ Z-Wave and ZWS-12 motor). I am still hoping for ARF Z-Wave and ZWS-230 motor.

@Frits_KA thats correct. They couldn’t test the other products right now. The plan is to add all products before the summer. Right now they want the first few products to be stable and working.

I hope that ZWS-230 motor will be added soon!

zws-230 motor is working now, works very nice. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Really!?
Please send a screenshot!

I can confirm this.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the developer of the Fakro app?
The link in the app page seems to be broken
(https://homey.app/en-gb/app/com.fakro.main/Fakro/)

I’m trying to work out how to add windows to Homey, but still have the remote controls/wall switches still work (which by default seem to use their own local z-wave network)

Let’s contact Fakro to ask them to release their update! Find details here:

Good news! :smiley:
