Fibaro


The Fibaro hub is a controller mainly connecting to Z-Wave devices.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

  • Binary Sensor
  • Cover
  • Light
  • Sensor
  • Scene
  • Switch

They will be automatically added when the fibaro hub is connected to Home Assistant.

Configuration

To use Fibaro devices in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file using the IP and port number of your Fibaro controller:

fibaro:
  gateways:
    - url: http://192.168.1.161/api/
      username: your_username
      password: your_password
      device_config:
        light_device_name_123:
          color: false
          white_value: false
          reset_color: true
        binary_device_name_123:
          device_class: "garage_door"
          icon: mdi:open

It is recommended to assign a static IP address to your Fibaro controller. This ensures that it won’t change its IP address, so you won’t have to change the url if the controller reboots and comes up with a different IP address. See your router’s manual for details on how to set this up. If you need the MAC address of your Fibaro, check the label on the bottom.

Using Z-Wave devices in automation

If you want to use a Z-Wave device from the Fibaro controller in Home Assistant automation, you’ll need the entity id. In the Home Assistant UI you’ll find all entities listed under the service developer tool icon icon of the Developer Tools section. Look for entities that contain ‘fibaro_id’ in their attributes, and you’ll find the entity id on the left.
