FGCD001 Carbon Monoxide Sensor

This describes the Z-Wave device FGCD001, manufactured by Fibargroup with the thing type UID of fibaro_fgcd001_00_000.

FGCD001 product image

The FGCD001 supports routing. This allows the device to communicate using other routing enabled devices as intermediate routers. This device is unable to participate in the routing of data from other devices.

The FGCD001 does not permanently listen for messages sent from the controller - it will periodically wake up automatically to check if the controller has messages to send, but will sleep most of the time to conserve battery life. The wakeup period can be configured in the user interface - it is advisable not to make this too short as it will impact battery life - a reasonable compromise is 1 hour. The wakeup period does not impact the devices ability to report events or sensor data. The device can be manually woken with a button press on the device as described below - note that triggering a device to send an event is not the same as a wakeup notification, and this will not allow the controller to communicate with the device.

Wakeup Interval

The wakeup interval sets the period at which the device will listen for messages from the controller. This is required for battery devices that sleep most of the time in order to conserve battery life. The device will wake up at this interval and send a message to the controller to tell it that it can accept messages - after a few seconds, it will go back to sleep if there is no further communications.

This setting is defined in seconds. It is advisable not to set this interval too short or it could impact battery life. A period of 1 hour (3600 seconds) is suitable in most instances.

Note that this setting does not affect the devices ability to send sensor data, or notification events.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_interval and is of type INTEGER.

Wakeup Node

When sleeping devices wake up, they send a notification to a listening device. Normally, this device is the network controller, and normally the controller will set this automatically to its own address. In the event that the network contains multiple controllers, it may be necessary to configure this to a node that is not the main controller. This is an advanced setting and should not be changed without a full understanding of the impact.

This parameter has the configuration ID wakeup_node and is of type INTEGER.

Association Groups

Association groups allow the device to send unsolicited reports to the controller, or other devices in the network. Using association groups can allow you to eliminate polling, providing instant feedback of a device state change without unnecessary network traffic.

The FGCD001 supports 7 association groups.

Group 1: Lifeline

“Lifeline” reports the device status and allows for assigning single device only (main controller by default). This group supports 1 nodes.

Group 2: CO Alarm

Devices in this group will be switched on/off when CO Alarm status changes. This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 3: CO Alarm

Devices in this group will receive notification when CO Alarm status changes. This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 4: CO Level

Devices in this group will be switched on/off after exceeding the level of CO concentration specified in parameter 14. This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 5: Tamper Alarm

Sends tamper alarm and cancellation frames to the associated devices. This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 6: CO Alarm BC

Devices in this group will receive sensor alarm frames when CO Alarm status changes. This group supports 5 nodes.

Group 7: Tamper Alarm BC

Sends tamper alarm and alarm cancellation frames to the associated devices. This group supports 5 nodes.
