Just received my new fibaro button today but i was unable to find any device handler. For it.
Anyone using this device already?
It looks great and theoretically you can do up to 6 scenes with just one button.
Good to hear that Adam! I am able to use code done by others but programing a device handler from scratch is still too difficult for me. Hope that you share the device handler as soon as you can make it work.
Nice! - well it looks like I won’t be getting mine for a while as I ordered the brown one, and apparently there is no UK stock of this yet. They only have shipped red, blue, white and black ones… annoying and no eta!
Hmm interesting, I ordered one Red and 2 Whites, and only my Red one has arrived. - I spoke to Steve @ Fibaro who said they hadn’t had any stock of White Buttons in the UK yet :S
Better give him a call on Monday again!
I stopped at 4 clicks because that’s all that is supported using the standard button controller smartapp, also, i only really needed single and double click for my use case, (a button next to my bed to run routines like ‘night mode’ or ‘morning’/‘home’ etc
It also recognises holds and releases as seperate commands, I tried to get that to work, but the button always got stuck in the ‘HELD’ mode. - I think the expecation is that there is a seperate command for ‘HELD RELEASED’ but I couldn’t work out how to reliably get that to work.
The other issue is around the ‘wake up’ command, (which happens when you quadruple click the button) - It was throwing an error for a while, which i basically got it to ignore. - Not even sure what the wake up command should do, so I abandoned that.
How much physical pressure do you need to apply to the button? I don’t think I’ll get one as I have enough button controller devices at this point, but I’m bound to get asked in one of the assistive technology groups.
That is, could someone with limited arm strength Press it easily with an elbow or the heel of the hand? Could an assistance dog press it with their nose?
(For dogs, we don’t typically teach double clicks or long holds, we just set all the button variations to the same action. But there are a lot of buttons out there that the dogs can use. My dog can use a Flic button, a smartenIT 3 toggle, an Iris smart button, and a Logitech Harmony pop button. But he can’t use an Aeon minimote or a Securifi keyfob.)
