  UHAS OVERVIEW 

  • UHAS has been developed for the Fibaro Home Centre 2 (HC2) home automation controller, as a series of modules, which are responsible for one particular action or job, and the user can interact with them as a group, or on their own.
  • UHAS provides an advanced Home Automation (HA) set of features, ready to be used out of the box with minimum user effort to set up and run. Running code is provided as part of the system, doing most of the settings for the user or a systems installer.
  • UHAS is primarily intended to be used by users of the Fibaro HC2 system who wish to have fully featured HA without the need to learn LUA programming and spending a lot of time with coding Virtual Devices and scenes.
  • UHAS can also become a part of a mature Fibaro system installation which has developed with many modules to cover more advanced HA and more devices.
  • UHAS Virtual Devices and scenes use proprietary code developed by author. This code is developed to minimise users involvement in installation and setting of the system. Most of the necessary setting is done by the UHAS components and other settings are simplified and minimised as much as possible. This was also possible because all UHAS VD's and scenes use role system that is used to find necessary components for actions to be performed.
  • UHAS Virtual devices category is set automatically during translation or changing of the main icon. This means that most of the VD's should show in proper category in new mobile app as lights, blinds, gates, ambience, climate, safety, security, multimedia, remotes and other. The same goes for scenes, when scenes save their settings after first manual run then also category is set.

UHAS PREREQUISITES 

  1. Fibaro Home Center 2 (HC2) with firmware version 4.120 or higher.

  2. Configured and installed z-wave devices – I.e., light switches, motion sensors, lux detectors etc 

INSTALLATION AND UPGRADE 

  • IMPORTANT NOTE - due to the size of UHAS installation package and manual please download both from Fibaro forum download section: Download UHAS
  • Please first download provided UHAS Installation and User Manual (12.3Mb) 
  • NOTE - UHAS uses its own unique global code variables. This means that UHAS will NOT influence the current system scenes, scripts, or virtual devices in any way, even if any of Sankotronic’s earlier UHAS beta versions and standalone scenes or VD's (Virtual Devices) are being used. There is no need for any changes to be made to the existing code before the installation of UHAS. The UHAS global variables are created and controlled automatically by the system so that you do not need to maintain them manually. 

PACKAGE CONTENT (25.7Mb) 

  • 86 Virtual Devices
  • 48 scenes
  • Icon sets for all the above VD's and scenes
