I have two different Fibaro Universal sensors. Both quite old, firmware version 2.1.
I used them on my elderly Vera Lite for years, and then ported my complete system over to Homey.
However, there is a problem. The same problem on both sensors, and also both on Vera and Homey which leads me to believe that it is a sensor problem, not a Homey problem.
The problem is that the data from the sensor stops updating, both the binary inputs (which I use for magnetic door sensors) and the temp sensors (of which I have two on the first one and 1 on the second universal sensor.
On the Vera, I found that you could send a message to the sensor to get it going again. The only other option would be to power cycle it. I think the command on the Vera was something like “Configure node now” or similar. I have tried all available commands from the Homey developer tools /zwave / rightclick menu (where you can test, heal etc) but to no avail.
Did anyone find a way to restart this device by a zwave command? If so, it would be easy enough to make a flow to detect whether it hangs or not, as the temp sensor values are expected to change several times every hour.
Is the newer versions better?
What about the new Smart Implant from Fibaro? It seems similar in most of its functionality. Any experience with that one?
Any other experience to share?
