I have two Fibaro Universal Binary sensors in my summer cottage. Both with two DS18B20 temperature sensors. Temperature sensors (normally only one) have stopped working about twice a year. Before I have to configure Binary sensors to get temperature sensors to work again (tedious job because the ids of the temperature sensors shift/changes and I have to correct the ids back to old to get my scenes working).
Three days ago I find some new information how to add Fibaro Smart implant to Vera and there was instructions how to do it (Fibaro Smart Implant Instructions to configure binary inputs). I god idea to check if I can correct my problems using those instructions. Both my Binary sensors have one temperature channel not updating. I checked the MultiChCapabilites values (Advance/Variables-page) and found that there were differences between those two sensors and some odd lines.
I edited the values like this (don’t add text with parantsis):
1,32,1,48,156, (e1 IN1)
2,32,1,48,156, (e2 IN2)
3,33,1,49, (e3 Temperature sensor1)
4,33,1,49, (e4 Temperature sensor2)
if you have four sensors then (probably)
5,33,1,49, (e5 Temperature sensor3)
6,33,1,49, (e6 Temperature sensor4)
After reloading the luup both Binary sensors started to work again and temperature sensors where okay (and they are still working). Best part is that you can do this also remotely. Don’t need to be at the cottage to correct the situation and no Id shifting).
(In the same way I also managed to correct my AeoTec HEM2 energy meters with 3 clamps that have lost one energy sensor clamp to update values. In this case MultiChCapabilites value should be:
