Fibaro FGMS-001 Smartthings detects this a door/window sensor and just shows as open?


(Ryan McDonald) #1

I have bought a couple of fibaro motion detectors to replace some of the samsung ones as I have cats so want to be able to adjust sensitivity.

I can only get Smartthings to detects these as a door/window sensor not a motion sensor, and it just shows the device as open. Is this correct?

@skyrider I’m in the same boat. Bought 4 of these recently and I tried changing the Device Type manually in the IDE but Im still getting strange results where the motion is always active. I’m also unable to go through to the configuration screen. Also be interested to see what responses you get from the community.

Just wanted to provide an update…I have 3 of these devices installed now and generally speaking they have been behaving themselves with the device type I found here: [DEPRECATED] Fibaro Motion Detector v3.2 (Alpha Release)

Probably best to follow progress / feedback in that post regarding these devices - that is if they are the 3.2 version…otherwise it seems to be this post for older versions: Fibaro Motion Sensor - New device-handler with all settings and auto sync feature
