Include the Z-Weather into the Fibaro Home Center
9. June 2016

Everybody, who wants to protect automatically his blinds and roller shutters in the case of wind, can bet on the multi sensor Z-Weather. This is thanks to the newest firmware version 4.081 beta of FIBARO’s Home Center 2 and Home Center Lite.
So far, some features of the Z-Weather multi sensor have not been available after the device was included in FIBARO’s Home Center. Including wind speed. Since the last update on 4.081 beta the Z-Weather module is also being supported with all features now. And so, the FIBARO Home Center displays following measured values:

  • (Outdoor) Temperature
  • Dew Point
  • Brightness
  • Air Pressure
  • Humidity
  • Wind Speed
  • Pulse Count (each 8th rotation)


Before you can configure and use Z-Weather with FIBARO Home Center, the unit needs to be fully charged. In order to charge Z-Weather place it in a location with direct sunlight exposure for 3-4 hours. Without direct sun light, charging may take 12 hours.
Go to “Add or remove module” section of the Home Center

• Start the learning mode of your Home Center and triple click the button on the bottom of Z-Weather (within 1.5 sec).
• Now both units begin to communicate. All functions will be displayed as single element under „rooms -> not associated“



Z-Weather is powered by a solar cell (energy self-sufficient). Depending on the load capacity of the internal capacitor the wake-up interval may verify between 15 minutes and up to 2 hours (at night or in winter time). The transmitted value for “wind speed” is the maximum value that has been measured since the last wake-up.

To secure blinds and awnings in case of wind it is recommended to use association group 2. Devices that are associated to this group with Z-Weather (up to 5 are possible) will be triggered immediately when reaching or exceeding a defined wind speed. The default value is 6m/s (22 km/h) and can be defined via parameter 1. Values are possible between 0-30 m/s. (1m/s = 3,6 km/h ; 1 km/h = 0,28 m/s).

The energy management of Z-Weather retains a reserve voltage, in order to be able to control this group of devices immediately as soon as the level of parameter 1 is reached/ exceeded – regardless of the current wake-up interval.

This also means, if you haven’t already made an update for Home Center Version 4.081 or more, you can although include Z-Weather in your network and save devices via association group 2 in case of gusty wind or even a storm. Only wind speed is not indicated as value on the web interface of the Home Center. Nevertheless, there is a solution for Home Center 2 users via LUA, see here.
