Menu Beeps and Inclusion
When you hold your hand in front of the device it enters the menu and makes this weird 3 tone beep. You may hear 1 loud beep before the 3 tone beep, but if it repeatedly makes that loud beep instead of entering the menu you should remove your hand, wait a few seconds, and then try again.
Once in the menu it will make a soft sound kind of like a click or chirp either once, twice, or three times to indicate the active menu option. Swipe up to select the active menu option, but if you don’t immediately hear 2 loud beeps you should swipe up again.
When you hear the 2 loud beeps after selecting the second menu option while including the device you may have to wait up to 30 seconds for SmartThings to report that it found the device.
The inclusion section of the manual shows a full hand parallel to the device, but that doesn’t seem to work if you have large hands. I’ve found that holding just your fingers in front of the center of the screen works better. I’ve also found that using just your fingers to perform the swipe action also works better.
If you’re having trouble getting into the menu and selecting the menu option you might want to try plugging the device in with the USB cable. After plugging it in you should wait at least 4 minutes to ensure that it’s detected that it’s been plugged in and has disabled the power saving features.
It’s easy to accidentally perform the gestures Up, Down, Left, and Right so you might not want to use them for anything or at least not anything important.
You can speed up the gesture recognition by disabling Double Swipe Gestures in the settings, but gestures that begin a sequence will still be slow.
The LED that indicates gesture recognition is located to the left of the “F” in the logo at the center of the screen. If you want to use this you have to enable it in the settings and you won’t be able to attach a photo to the device.
Thanks so much for posting this! I am really enjoying this device, thanks for your time here.
One question, I am using Core to set all these buttons as I don’t believe there is a actual app for this. When I set the clockwise option I just configure the button to pushed in core correct? Not held?
Hi, i have just installed the device handler and it Works great on smartthings, but wich smartapp i need to use? I install the button controller stock App, but only shows 4 buttons and cant assign 6. Can you help me to find the correct Smart App to use…? Thanks in advance…"
Just bought the device. Added it to my SmartThings hub and installed the device handler. The device is connected with Micro USB with pwoer savig disabled. All seems to be OK settings wise. I have set multiple lamps to trigger by buttons 1 to 4.
The problem is it does not seem to recognize gestures. Tried powering on and off a few times (with by unplugging from the battery back…)
Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot. Also if you have experience - would it work from 2-3 meters distance?
Unfortunately, probably not. The exact distance depends on whether there are any materials in between, but it typically works best at between four and 8 cm.
You can see the distance in the official marketing video:
And in the following interview, a Fibaro staff member explained that the typical distance is 1 to 2 inches because otherwise they felt there would be too many false triggers just from people doing other things in the room.
The goal is to give you a touchless switch with many different options, not a controller to be operated from a distance.
If you read all the instructions in the first you’ll see that this handler maps all the gestures to button numbers so if you select the device as a button then button 3 pushed is for swipe left and button 4 pushed is for swipe right.
