The Universal Binary Sensor is a wireless module that makes it possible to improve the functionality of any sensor with a binary output by allowing it to communicate with the wireless Z-Wave network and the FIBARO system. Moreover, the module allows for wireless communication between the system and the two binary sensors or four DS18B20 temperature sensors. The Sensor’s main function is the integration of the wireless FIBARO system with the existing wire-based and wireless alarm and measurement systems. As an element of the safety system, the device is transparent for parametric alarm lines.
Z-Wave Fibaro Universal Sensor
The Universal Binary Sensor is a wireless module allowing to improve the functionality of any wired sensor with a binary output by adding Z-Wave network communication. The module allows for wireless communication between the system and the temperature sensor. When used with the optional DS18B20 temperature sensor, the binary sensor can accurately measure temperature.
The Universal Binary Sensor can service up to 2 binary sensors and up to 4 temperature sensors.
The Universal Binary Sensor transforms every binary sensor (recognizes two conditions, such as smoke/no smoke) into a wireless sensor. The device is designed to be installed in the housing of a sensor or another device, whenever wireless collection of data from the wired sensors is required. In addition to sensor types like gas, water and smoke detectors, the radio module also integrates more flexible devices, such as alarm and measuring systems, into the smart home. All data from the systems and sensors is collected wirelessly and can be viewed centrally by the user via the user interface for the home automation system in place – for example using the Home Center 2.
If sensors detects too high smoke concentration, for instance, the home control system triggers a fire alarm and immediately opens the windows integrated in the network. The system is therefore always on hand as an emergency ‘assistant’ in the smart home. The wireless connection between the devices and sensors enables you to make saves on your time and money during the installation, as no cables are needed to connect up the components.
