I huge thanks to the Homey team for 1.5.2.
With direct multichannel associations, Homey has finally left the competition completely shattered!

Thank you so goddamnit much!

  • Good to read, hopefully it can come to stable quickly :) I altered your topic title a little bit too make your topic clearer about the information inside :) 
  • Change whatever you want - I don't care!
    I have the best home automation controller, ever.  :D

    @Lurendrejer good to hear! 
  • What can i do whit this option ?
  • Rule the world!!
  • And associate certain multichannel devices directly.

    @Lurendrejer the forum has options to add a comment with more than 6 words  ;)

    @Leeuw1960 it enables that within Homey you can configure that a motion sensor is directly switching on a lamp upon movement without having to setup flows within Homey to connect an action (switch on light) to a trigger (motion) (aka direct association). This was already possible for devices that are single node, but not for multichannel devices (multiple sockets being able to be controlled independently).

    do you perhaps know if the coolcam motion sensors also understand multichannel association like the fibaros?

    Interesting... I keep learning :)
    But the next question is how to....? Is this done via the association fields? Maybe you have some (flow) examples?

    @RuudvB That's in your devices manual... Like in
    http://manuals.fibaro.com/document/fgs2-associations/
  • @TedTolboom, I know. But 98% of the time I'm somewhere else than home, with only a mobile phone. :-/
  • @RuudvB you find the nodeId's in each devices options. You can input these in the association fields. If the devices support the same types of messages/association, stuff happens without having homey Involved.

    Thanks I'm going to test!

    I did some tests with Fibaro dimmer 2 as receiver to turn on the lights but direct association (group 2) is not working. I tried 3 types of sensors to control the dimmer (group2):

    Fibaro button
    z-wave.me wall controller
    Philio Slim 4 in 1 Multisensor PST02-A

    All of them are secure, but it's not working.

    - strange things: for Fibaro Button no device parameters can be set.....

    - When I connect 2 dimmers (so put ID of another dimmer in group 2 of first dimmer) both dimmers turn on the light when I turn the light on with push on dimmer 1.

    What can I do to have the three sensors work with direct association, let's start with one of them ;)
