FIBARO – Z-Wave Roller Shutters 2
Shutters can be much more than a privacy protection. They can be used to save a lot of energy in your home. During winter the shutters can be used to keep the heat inside your home. On the other hand the shutters can be closed during summer to shadow your home for comfortable cool climate inside.
The FIBARO Roller Shutter 2 gives you the possibility to control your electrical shutters, blinds and garage doors from everywhere. Roller Shutter 2 can control any device driven by an AC motor. The insert turns standard electric installations intelligent using Z-Wave wireless technology. Roller Shutter 2 enables precise positioning of motors with mechanical and electrical limit switch. Additionally the device is able to monitor power consumption.
The device is placed in a wall box right behind the normal switch. The switch is no longer directly connected to the load but acts as input device for the FIBARO insert that is controlling the load. The switch only sends control signal to the insert which controls the load then again. The solution works with all switch design. You can use a momentary or a toggle switch as long as there is enough space in the wall box behind the switch.
The device is just 20.30 mm height. The available space depends on the size of the traditional switch, the dimensions of the wall box and the amount of additional cabling placed in this box. With Roller Shutter 2 (FGR-222) FIBARO reacts to renewed product designs. The roller shutter will be adjusted to the other inserts and FIBARO unifies its product line optically.

With dimensions of 37mm x 42mm x 17mm Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 is an extremely small module, which will easily fit into controlled devices controller’s housing. Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 allows for precise positioning of an electric roller blind, and in case of a venetian blind, precise positioning of slats. Precise positioning is possible in connection with motors equipped with electronic and mechanic limit switches. You are no longer limited to choose a gate or a roller blind of any specific kind.
Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 controller requires a calibration to work with any given motor. Implemented limit switches calibration mechanism allows for very accurate definition of a roller blind position in relation to limit switches, or a venetian blind slats position. Thanks to the calibration, Fibaro System precisely knows how the blinds are positioned and whether venetian blinds are open or closed. This prevents the System from inaccurate interpretation of closed / open status.
Five Individual Operating Modes
Depending on type of device to be controlled by Fibaro Roller Shutter 2, there were prepared five individual operating modes, which ensure the proper operation of any electric garage gate, roller blind, awning and venetian blind. Choose an operating mode depending on type and functionality of your device. This will allow for the proper configuration and correct operation of a device through a dedicated virtual manipulator and displayed interface icon.
Alarm System Cooperation
Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 uses Protection Command Class v2 to protect against unwanted electric motor movement. Once Local Protection has been activated, the module stops responding to wall switches. This can be useful in case of burglary, in order to impede burglars attempt to get out with your belongings.
In addition, Roller Shutter 2 can respond to fire alarm, flood alarm, burglar alarm or general alarm, thanks to which System can perform certain activities having discovered specific threats. It can open roller blinds and gates to ensure safe escape route after fire has been discovered, or close roller blinds and activate Protection mode, cutting off wall switches, once motion inside or outside has been detected.
Safe Garage Exit
When using a Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 to control an electric garage gate, you can use the pause function. Pause function allows for closing the gate automatically, after predefined time period. You can safely exit the garage without bothering to close it and thus protecting it from unwanted visitors. To prevent the gate from closing before you drive away to a safe distance, connect an IR barrier to a Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 and additional emergency stop switch. Added emergency stop button will allow for preventing the gate from closing in case of threatening damage.
