Home Center 2 is a brain of FIBARO System, or any Z-Wave based home automation system. Home Center 2 was designed and
developed by our engineers, so that we could implement many unique features never seen in competitive devices.
Home Center 2 redefines Z-Wave based home automation and introduces the real Home Intelligence.
Home Center 2 by FIBARO isn't just an electronic device. It's also well designed, innovative and user friendly interface, featuring functions never seen before.
We have put huge emphasis on styling and build quality, so that Home Center 2 by FIBARO pleases You from the first time You look at it. What You see is what You get - Home Center 2 by FIBARO is made of solid aluminium. You won't find cheap plastic anywhere! Home Center 2 by FIBARO isn't just good looking. True innovations hide inside.
Thanks to its efficiency, Home Center 2 is much, much faster than other Z-Wave gateways currently on the market. The communication within the Z-Wave network has improved dramatically, resulting in immediate response to commands sent by the home automation system user.
Significantly improved user safety thanks to FIBARO's proprietary approach to data protection. Each Home Center 2 has its own Recovery disc, holding system backup, unique to each gateway. This completely prevents unauthorised access to the system. Another advantage of this solution is quick and simple system healing after any failure.
Large memory + fast processor = quick communication between FIBARO System devices. Hardware architecture used in Home Center 2 makes Z-Wave based home automation system work much faster then ever.
Connect wires as shown in below figure. Plug the power cord to the POWER and the network cable to LAN port
After ca.2 minutes from connecting to power socket, Home Center 2 is ready to operate. By default, Home Center 2 waits to get an IP address from Your DHCP server. If unsure, hold RECOVERY button for a while when power on. By doing this Home Center 2 will automatically get static IP 192.168.81.1 To access the control panel, type the Home Center 2 IP address in your web browser's address bar.
Home Cener 2 gives You new possibilities thaks to Linked Devices. The Linked Devices function lets you combine multiple devices into one virtual device with combined functionality - for example 3 heater thermostats plus temperature and humidity sensors. The primary advantage of this feature is the convenience of being able to control multiple devices at the same time, at the press of one button. The second advantage is a reduction of the number of devices icons in the user interfaces.
The Home Center 2 interface gives You easy control over groups of devices responsible for the same functionality - heating, air conditioning, garden watering. Thanks to Devices Panels, you can easily schedule operations for groups of devices, based on the day of the week or the time of day.
Home Center 2 gives You another unique functionality - finding Your family members. Now You will always know where Your children are, without the need to call them each 5 minutes. Home Center 2 will get their location for You.
Home Center 2 offers new approach to scenes. Now scenes may be conditioned on any, user defined variable.
- close roof windows,
- turn garden sprinklers OFF,
- set "it rained" variable to 1.
Each day at 6:00 am check if "it rained" (user defined variable).
If not ("it rained" variable = 0) - turn the sprinklers ON.
If "it rained" and 12 hours passed from that time:
- set "it rained" variable value to 0.
