In Associations, Device adding/removing, Fibaro Home Center 2, Fibaro Home Center Lite, Guides, Matrix ZDB

To make the user interface in Fibaro Home Center (HC) show the physical changes in state of the light dimmer in MATRIX, it must be associated correctly in HC. Do the following:

Step:

1

Find the root device which is to the left in the devices list. Click on the root device.

2

In the root device, choose the tab Advanced.

3

In the Advanced tab, scroll down and click on the button Setting association.

4

This will open up a dialogue window for the chosen logical unit (Endpoint 0) with 14 association groups, each with the possibility of connecting devices.

Each group represent a type of message. The message will be send from the Root Device (or other chosen device) to the device selected in the association group list.

The groups and types of mesages are listed below. Numbers in brackets are the corresponding numbers shown when selecting Setting Association for Endpoint 1-4.

Group 1: Lifeline messages – always set to the Controller address (often address 1). HC does this automatically, but as a Single Channel association. This is not correct and must be corrected to a Multi Channel association, see the following steps.

Group 2: Basic Report messages for pushbutton 1 (e.g. used in multiway switching between several MATRIX units).

Group 3: Binary Switch messages for pushbutton 1.

Group 4: Multilevel Switch messages for pushbutton 1.

Group 5 (2): Basic Report messages for pushbutton 2 (e.g. used in multiway switching between several MATRIX units).

Group 6 (3): Binary Switch messages for pushbutton 2.

Group 7 (4): Multilevel Switch messages for pushbutton 2.

Group 8 (2): Basic Report for pushbutton 3 (e.g. used in multiway switching between several MATRIX units).

Group 9 (3): Binary Switch messages for pushbutton 3.

Group 10 (4): Multilevel Switch messages for pushbutton 3.

Group 11 (2): Basic Report messages for pushbutton 4 (e.g. used in multiway switching between several MATRIX units).

Group 12 (3): Binary Switch messages for pushbutton 4.

Group 13 (4): Multilevel Switch messages for pushbutton 4.

Group 14 (2): Basic Report messages for dimmer device (use if the dimmer is also controlled by another MATRIX device so it receives the actual dimmer state when changed).

5

IMPORTANT! Get MATRIX to send Lifeline messages to HC through Multi Channel to show correct status in HC when the dimmer and pushbuttons of MATRIX are used. Click on Group 1 and move the checkmark from the column S to the column M in the Home Center 2 row.

6

HC will now immediately know the correct status of the MATRIX Dimmer device, when activating the physical switch on the MATRIX pushbutton.
