According to to ‘Zen Master Dave’ this device IS NOT compatible with SmartThings. Yet. So then, why is it on their list of products that work? And why should I possibly be out $60? See chat below;

ryan: Fibaro Motion Detector only connects as an open/close sensor. After changing devicetype, always shows as ‘motion’ active.
David: Hey there Ryan, Thanks so much for chatting in with me at SmartThings Support.
I apologize you’re experiencing trouble, I would be delighted to assist you with that!
David: How far is the Fibaro from the Hub?
ryan: As it sits, 15 feet. It is a FGMS-001 USA ver 3.2
David: May I have you remove the device.
David: And then move the Fibaro within a foot of the Hub.
David: And re-include it.
David: I wouldn’t just yet
ryan: Before we do all that, let’s see what I have already done. I have removed from the hub several times, I have reset the device to factory several times and I have rebooted the hub several times. I have included it within 1 foot of the hub. Did I miss something.
David: Nope, you’re on point.
David: It looks like this is a known issue we’re presently tracking with the new Fibaro motion sensors.
David: I’m tagging this chat/ticket so our developers are aware of you experiencing this as well.
David: This way, once the device gets certified, we can follow up via email to let you know.
ryan: Any time frame? If not, I’d like to return the device before I no longer can.
David: I do not have an ETA, however, this is a major priority we’re working to resolve, so that they pair correctly.
ryan: K, thanks
David: Absolutely Ryan!
David: Before we depart, did you have any additional questions I can happily assist you with?
ryan: No, thank you.
