Fibaro Smoke Sensor responds to the physical presence of smoke. Smoke
presence is required for the device to react. Fibaro Smoke Sensor performs a self
test every 5 seconds (see section VII) and checks for smoke presence. When
smoke is detected, the sensor checks 3 more times, at 1 second interval to see,
whether the smoke is actually present. Once the smoke presence is confirmed,
Fibaro Smoke Sensor triggers an alarm.
Smoke alarm is signaled by sending an appropriate alarm frame to devices and the
Z-Wave controller, opening NC contact, and also by a constant sound signal and
LED diode blinking red. Once the smoke alarm has ceased, the sensor checks 3
times, at 1 second interval, whether the smoke has actually disappeared before
getting back to normal operation, i.e. performing a self test each 5 seconds and
checking for presence of smoke.
As described in section V, the Fibaro Smoke Sensor checks for
smoke presence every 5 seconds. In addition, the device checks
for damage and tests the Z-Wave network communication at each
wake up interval (see section VIII).
Fibaro Smoke Sensor is a multiple use device, however, for
greater safety, it’s recommended to replace the device with a new
one after a fire occurance.
VI. DETECTING FIRE THROUGH TEMPERATURE ALARM
Apart from detecting smoke presence, Fibaro Smoke Sensor can detect fire by
recording a rapid temperature rise. Temperature alarm threshold is user defined
(parameter 81). Temperature alarm is signaled by the blinking red LED signaling
diode blinking red and an intermittent sound signal.
Parameter 81 value is set to 54ºC by default. Any modification of
this parameter may cause the Fibaro Smoke Sensor not to work
within the valid safety regulations of your country.
VII. MALFUNCTION DETECTION
The Fibaro Smoke Sensor can automatically detect a malfunction. As described in
section V, the Fibaro Smoke Sensor performs a self test every 5 seconds. If a malfunction
is detected (e.g. damaged smoke chamber) an intermittent sound alarm will start, LED
diode will blink red and alarm will be sent to the Z-Wave network controller and
Once a malfunction has been detected, it’s recommended to:
• check the power source (replace battery or check VDC adapter’s voltage),
• check whether the Smoke Sensor is exposed to direct light.
If a malfunction is continually reported, it’s recommended to replace a the Fibaro Smoke
Sensor with new one.
Self test may be triggered manually:
1) Make sure the device is being powered.
2) Press and hold the B-button untill the LED glows white and short alarm sounds.
3) Keep holding the B-button for an additional 3 seconds from the first beep to check the
smoke chamber operation.
LED indicator colour changing to green and beep mean the positive result. If the LED
indicator changes its colour to red, the sensor is malfunctioning.
Any service or repair must be carried out by the manufacturer.
VIII. DETECTING LACK OF Z-WAVE RANGE
When included in the Z-Wave network, Fibaro Smoke Sensor tests the network
communication. The Z-Wave network communication test is performed in both hard wired
and battery powering modes during every temperature report. By default, once the
ambient temperature changes by 2ºC, according to parameters 10 and 12 settings. In
addition, in battery mode, the Z-Wave network communication test is performed at device
polling. In constant power mode, the Z-Wave network communication test is performed in
time intervals defined by parameter 80 settings. Lack of the Z-Wave network communica-
tion is signaled by an intermittent alarm sound and LED blinking pink.
Once a Fibaro Smoke Sensor has reported no Z-Wave network communication, it’s
recommended to wake up the device by triple clicking the B-button. If it doesn’t stop the
alarm, Z-Wave networks operation and the main controllers operation need to be verified.
The Fibaro Smoke Sensor will cancel the Z-Wave network communication alarm once it
communicates with the network after manual or automatic wake up.
It’s not recommended to deactivate the Z-Wave network communication
IX. SENSOR’S SENSITIVITY LEVEL CONFIGURATION
There are 3 sensitivity levels of the optical smoke detector used in Fibaro Smoke Sensor.
By default, the detector is set to the middle sensitivity level. Sensitivity level depends on
the parameter 82 settings.
X. RESETTING THE FIBARO SMOKE SENSOR
The Fibaro Smoke Sensor reset erases the EPROM memory, including all information on
the Z-Wave network and the main controller.
Fibaro Smoke Sensor reset procedure:
1) Make sure the device has the power connected.
2) Press and hold the B-button for 3 seconds. LED will glow white.
3) Short signal will sound.
4) Release the B-button.
5) Wait until the LED glows yellow, signaling entering the 4th menu level.
6) Press the B-button briefly to confirm menu level choice.
Successful reset will be confirmed with the LED changing colour to red and fading. At the
same time, short beep will sound, same as at the power connection.
XI. OPERATING THROUGH THE Z-WAVE NETWORK
Fibaro Smoke Sensor has a built in smoke detector and a temperature sensor, which
makes it a multi channel device. In the Home Center 2 menu it will be presented as two
devices, depending on the main controller software version*:

and LED indicator
When the self test is triggered manually, the Fibaro Smoke Sensor sends
the command frame to the Z-Wave network controller and to the 1st
Association group devices. After 3 seconds from releasing the B-button,
the alarm cancelling command frame will be sent and the procedure will
Installing Fibaro Smoke Sensor
1) Include the device into the Z-Wave network (see p.I). Note the inclusion process
may be performed ONLY in direct range of the main controller.
2) If the sensor is hard wired to power source, drill holes in sensor’s cover. Note the
sensor may be connected to a wired alarm system controller or fire prevention
3) Install the sensor’s cover in desired location.
4) If the sensor is to be VDC powered, connect wires observing diagram # 3. If the
sensor is to be connected to an alarm system or fire prevention system, connect
it observing the diagram # 4.
* Depending on the parameters settings.
Drill holes here
Device reset will not remove it from the Z-Wave network main
controller’s memory. Before resetting the device, it must be excluded
from the Z-Wave network.
