VeraPlus and Fibaro FGSD002 smoke detectors not working
I have had a VeraPlus and three Fibaro FGSD002 smoke detectors working in my house for some time. When I first installed them I tested them by pressing and holding the test button, this triggered my “Fire Alarm” scene as expected.
I also routinely monitored the three room temperatures via the IomperiHome app and also used them to trigger emergency heating whilst away if the temperature fell below 10C.
I recently noticed that the reported temperature of one sensor was stuck (i.e. did not change). I also noticed that all three sensors reported very low battery levels even after a battery change.
When I pressed and held the test button each sensor it responded locally but did nottrigger an alarm on VeraPlus (nor did it trigger my “Fire Alarm” scene).
I have now removed and added back all three sensors. They were all recognised as
All three sensors now report the temperature correctly and battery levels of 100%, they are all “armed” however pressing and holding the test button does not trigger an alarm nor trigger my “Fire Alarm” scene. Any help would be appreciated.
Having read several related threads it seems that some people suggest that the manual test button should not trigger an alarm. This has not been my experience and the manufacture’s manual says:
When the self-test is triggered manually the Fibaro Smoke Sensor
sends control command to the Z-Wave network controller. The
procedure will be performed at least as long as the B-button is not
released (will be completed in up to 10 seconds after releasing
I am running firmware version 1.7.4453
