Integrating Domoticz with Fibaro Home Center - Configuring FibaroLink

 

 

IMPORTANT - Read this first!

These guides are now considerably out of date and remain here only as a reference.

Please visit the Domoticz forum for help with installing and configuring Domoticz.

 

This guide shows how to integrate the Domoticz Home Automation software on the Raspberry Pi with a Fibaro Home Center Z-Wave Controller.

Domoticz is a well supported and actively developed piece of software that can be used as a Home Automation system in it's own right.

When coupled with a Rasberry Pi, it makes a great value for money Home Automation Controller that can integrate many different technologies.

Integrating Domoticz with a Fibaro Home Center allows the use of devices based on technologies that Fibaro do not support directly within your Z-Wave based system, for example EnOcean, 1Wire, X10, Hue, LightwaveRF, Oregon Scientific, Visonic, Somfy RTS, etc.

This guide will focus on configuring Domoticz to "export" devices installed in Domoticz to the Fibaro Home Center (for example sensor readings) and to "control" devices installed in Fibaro Home Center from Domoticz.

The final guide in this series will then focus on configuring Fibaro Home Center to "control" devices installed in Domoticz.


Fibaro Home Center Z-Wave ControllersFibaro Home Center Z-Wave Controllers


In our other related guides, we show you how to initially configure Domoticz and how to control Z-Wave and RFXtrx433E based devices.


PLEASE NOTE:

While we are happy to provide the Domoticz related guides to our Customers, we are unable to provide detailed Technical Support for any Domoticz related problems.

The best place to seek assistance with Domoticz is the forum.

Full information on what Vesternet Technical Support covers is available here.

Prerequisites


Before beginning, it is assumed that you have already completed the initial installation of Domoticz on your Raspberry Pi.

If you haven't completed this step yet, we recommend that you follow the tutorial here - it's a relatively simple process and mainly involves downloading the Domoticz "image" and writing it to an appropriately sized SD Card using the software included with the download.

Once Domoticz is installed, you should be able to connect to the web based User Interface by accessing "http://IPADDRESS:8080" where "IPADDRESS" matches the IP address of your Raspberry Pi (this will be given out by the DHCP server in your Broadband Router, or you may have set a "static" IP address during installation).

Domoticz User InterfaceDomoticz User Interface

We also recommend that you follow the previous application guide in this series as this will show you how to configure Domoticz to suit our intended usage scenarios.

Configure FibaroLink


Domoticz has recently added a "Data push" feature that allows it to be easily configured for integrating with other systems.

Within this is a tool specifically for Fibaro called "FibaroLink" which contains functionality that will allow:

  • Sending data from a Domoticz device to a Fibaro Home Center "Global Variable".
  • Sending data from a Domoticz device to a Fibaro Home Center "Virtual Device".
  • Activating a Fibaro Home Center "Scene" from within Domoticz.
  • "Rebooting" a Fibaro Home Center from within Domoticz.

Further functionality may be added in the future, but the above offer many opportunities already!

Configuring FibaroLink is relatively simple:

  • Click "Setup" on the Domoticz menu, followed by "More Options", then "Data push" and finally "FibaroLink":

Configuring FibaroLinkConfiguring FibaroLink

  • On the next screen, enter the IP Address of your Fibaro Home Center in the "Remote Address" field, along with appropriate authentication details in the "Username" and "Password" fields.
  • Make sure "FibaroLink active" and "Debug to logfile" are ticked (the latter will help with checking that everything is working ok):

That's it!

Well, not quite, that was the easy part - actually making Domoticz do something with the FibaroLink can get quite complicated, but we've provided step-by-step instructions to help!

Updating Fibaro Home Center Global Variables


As mentioned in the list of capabilities above, Domoticz can send data from a Domoticz device to a Fibaro Home Center "Global Variable".

For more information on Global Variables, see our associated application note.

In our example below, we will be using a sensor reading from an Oregon Scientific Temperature Sensor that we have previously added to Domoticz.

Domoticz Oregon Scientific Temperature SensorDomoticz Oregon Scientific Temperature Sensor

To setup Domoticz to update a Fibaro Home Center Global Variable, we will need to first create a Global Variable in Fibaro Home Center, then add a "Link" in FibaroLink to update it.


Configure Fibaro Home Center


  • Access the Fibaro Home Center UI in your Web Browser.
  • Click "Panels" on the menu, followed by "Variables Panel".
  • Click "Add" under the "Variables" section:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home Center

  • Give your Global Variable a descriptive name in the "Variable Name" field. Note: We recommend using a simple alpha-numeric value for the ID as this will be used by Domoticz to access the correct value in Fibaro Home Center. Remember this name for later!
  • Give the Global Variable an initial "Value" - We used "0" as this makes it obvious when the Global Variable gets updated.
  • Click the "Save" button when you are finished:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home Center

  • Your Global Variable should now be saved:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home Center


Configure FibaroLink


  • Click "Setup" on the Domoticz menu, followed by "More Options", then "Data push" and finally "FibaroLink".
  • Select "Global variable" from the "Target type" dropdown field.
  • Select the appropriate device from the "Device name" dropdown field. Here we will be using an Oregon Scientific device that we created previously called "Garden Temperature".
  • FibaroLink can send a number of different data values depending on the device type. In this example we will be selecting "Temperature" from the "Value to send" dropdown field.
  • In the "Target variable" field, type the name of the Global Variable that you created in Fibaro Home Center. Here we've entered "GardenTemperature" to match the Global Variable we created above. Note: This must match exactly!
  • Tick the "Include unit" field if you want FibaroLink to send the "unit" with the data it will be sending. For our example, this will send "°C" immediately following the data.
  • Next, tick the "Link active" field to make this Link active (this field allows you to selectively enable / disable your configured Links).
  • Finally, click the "Add" button to add your Link:

Adding a Link to FibaroLinkAdding a Link to FibaroLink

  • Your Link will now appear in the list on the FibaroLink page of the Domoticz UI:

Adding a Link to FibaroLinkAdding a Link to FibaroLink

  • When the device that you have created a Link for is next updated (in this case when the next sensor reading is received), FibaroLink will send the data to Fibaro Home Center.
  • You can check that this is operating correctly from within the Domoticz "Log" page by clicking "Setup" followed by "Log":

Adding a Link to FibaroLinkAdding a Link to FibaroLink

  • Now, if you switch back over to the Fibaro Home Center UI, you can see that the Global Variable has been updated:

Global Variable in Fibaro Home Center updatedGlobal Variable in Fibaro Home Center updated

That's all there is to it!

As long as you follow the steps above carefully, you should now have no problem in updating Global Variables in Fibaro Home Center from devices in Domoticz.

Updating Fibaro Home Center Virtual Devices


As mentioned in the list of capabilities above, Domoticz can send data from a Domoticz device to a Fibaro Home Center "Virtual Device".

For more information on Virtual Devices, see our associated application note.

In our example below, we will be using a sensor reading from an Oregon Scientific Temperature Sensor that we have previously added to Domoticz.

Domoticz Oregon Scientific Temperature SensorDomoticz Oregon Scientific Temperature Sensor

To setup Domoticz to update a Fibaro Home Center Virtual Device, we will need to first create a Virtual Device in Fibaro Home Center, then add a "Link" in FibaroLink to update it.


Configure Fibaro Home Center


  • Access the Fibaro Home Center UI in your Web Browser.
  • Click "Devices" on the menu, followed by "Add or remove devices", then "Add" in the "To add the Virtual Device" section:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Virtual Device to Fibaro Home Center

  • Give the Virtual Device a descriptive name in the "Name" field.
  • Since this is a "dummy" Virtual Device, as in it won't actually be doing anything, you can set the "IP Address" and "TCP Port" fields to anything you like - We used the IP Address of the Home Center itself:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Virtual Device to Fibaro Home Center

  • Switch over to the "Advanced" tab and add the "buttons" and / or "labels" that you wish your Virtual Device to have. For our example, we are adding a single label.
  • Click "Add set" to add the layout:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Virtual Device to Fibaro Home Center

  • The layout will then appear, ready for configuring.
  • Enter some descriptive text in the "Label" field and select the "Main" option.
  • Give the label a unique reference in the "ID" field. Note: We recommend using a simple alpha-numeric value for the ID as this will be used by Domoticz to access the correct value in Fibaro Home Center. Remember this unique reference for later:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Virtual Device to Fibaro Home Center

  • Once the Virtual Device is fully configured, click the blue "Save" icon to store the changes:

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Virtual Device to Fibaro Home Center

  • Make a note of the internal "Device ID" that Fibaro Home Center has assigned to the Virtual Device as you will need this later.
  • The easiest way to see this is looking at the numeric "vid=" value in your Web Browser address bar. For our example, the value is "74":

Adding a Global Variable to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Virtual Device to Fibaro Home Center


Configure FibaroLink


  • Click "Setup" on the Domoticz menu, followed by "More Options", then "Data push" and finally "FibaroLink".
  • Select "Virtual device" from the "Target type" dropdown field.
  • Select the appropriate device from the "Device name" dropdown field. Here we will be using an Oregon Scientific device that we created previously called "Garden Temperature".
  • FibaroLink can send a number of different data values depending on the device type. In this example we will be selecting "Temperature" from the "Value to send" dropdown field.
  • In the "Target variable" field, type the internal "Device ID" of the Virtual Device that you created in Fibaro Home Center. Here we've entered "74" to match the Virtual Device we created above. Note: This must match exactly!
  • In the "Target property" field, type the unique reference of the part of the Virtual Device that you wish to be updated with this value.
  • This should take the format of "ui." + your unique reference + ".value". For our example this is "ui.Temperature.value". Note: This must match exactly!
  • Tick the "Include unit" field if you want FibaroLink to send the "unit" with the data it will be sending. For our example, this will send "°C" immediately following the data.
  • Next, tick the "Link active" field to make this Link active (this field allows you to selectively enable / disable your configured Links).
  • Finally, click the "Add" button to add your Link:

That's all there is to it!

As long as you follow the steps above carefully, you should now have no problem in updating Virtual Devices in Fibaro Home Center from devices in Domoticz.

Activating a Fibaro Home Center Scene


As mentioned in the list of capabilities above, Domoticz can activate a Fibaro Home Center "Scene".

In our example below, we will activate a Fibaro Home Center Scene in two ways:

  • We will tie the activation to the on / off status of a physical device in Domoticz.
  • We will tie the activation to the on / off status of a virtual device in Domoticz.

To setup Domoticz to activate a Fibaro Home Center Scene, we will need to first create a Scene in Fibaro Home Center, then add a "Link" in FibaroLink to update it.


Configure Fibaro Home Center


Scenes in Fibaro Home Center currently have one limitation - they require a "Trigger" to be met before they will run, even if the Scene is simply to set the state of several devices!

To work around this, we will create a Global Variable whose condition will always be met, allowing the Scene to always run.

  • Access the Fibaro Home Center UI in your Web Browser.
  • Click "Panels" on the menu, followed by "Variables Panel".
  • Click "Add" under the "Variables" section:

Adding a Scene to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Scene to Fibaro Home Center

  • Give your Global Variable a descriptive name in the "Variable Name" field. Note: We used "FibaroLink" for our example. Remember this name for later!
  • Give the Global Variable a permanent value of "1".
  • Click the "Save" button when you are finished:

Adding a Scene to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Scene to Fibaro Home Center

  • Your Global Variable should now be saved:

Adding a Scene to Fibaro Home CenterAdding a Scene to Fibaro Home Center

Next, we'll create a couple of Scenes, one which we will link to the "on" status of a device in Domoticz and one which we will link to the "off" status of a device in Domoticz.

On Scene
  • Click "Scenes" and then "Add scene":
