I've bought a Fibaro Keyfob 601, i had no problems with adding the control but I can not add the buttons, is there anyone who knows how to add buttons in Domoticz, trinangel, square, circle, etc.

I've exactly the same problem. The device has been added in hardware but the buttons are not detected.

Have you found the way to work with it ?

how to install z-wave fibaro keyfob fgkf-601 on synology precompiled domoticz

- Remove the device from your z-wave network, you will find it in settings|hardware|OpenZWave it has id 1000 and type 1001.
- Download the configuration file fgkf601.xml from github and store it on your synology
- use putty to login on synology as admin, use 'sudo sh' to get full rights, consider yourself responsible if something bad happens.
- use the cp command to copy the file fgkf601.xml to /usr/local/domoticz/Config/fibaro
- use 'ls -l' to see the owner and rights of the other files in the fibaro folder.
- use the chown command and chmod command to give the file fgkf601.xml the same owner and rights.
- go to /usr/local/domoticz/Config , you will see the file manufacturer_specific.xml . You will need to add your keyfob in the fibaro manufacturer section, between the other fibaro products. You do this by adding this line:
<Product type="1001" id="1000" name="FGKF601 Keyfob" config="fibaro/fgkf601.xml"/>
You can use vi or copy the file to a public folder, change it there and copy it back.
- I think it is time to restart Synology to make sure the new Config file is used.
- Add your device to your z-wave network
- In domoticz go to settings|hardware|OpenZwave|Node administration(Node beheer in Dutch)|command panel (bedieningspaneel in Dutch)
- Click on configuration, select the fgkf601, in functions, select group, in groups you select the key and the number corresponds to the node id of the device that is controlled with this key. Click on submit to program your keyfob.
To check the current values, click on current values instead of configuration.

I think this was it, please let me and others know if it worked.

I don't get this up-and-running on my Domoticz installation.

I can include the Fibaro Keyfob correctly but no new devices (switches / button (or combination of buttons) ? ) are added to the list of available devices. And I don't understand what exactly you are meaning with that group configuration. Does that have any influence? Or what am I doing wrong or goes wrong here with my installation? I've attached some print screens of how the configuration looks like right now.

I would like to trigger the execution of some bash scripts from those buttons (for various kind of stuff, for example starting a radio stream on my Pi).

Any help is welcome.

Hi there,
I have the same problem as you.. Keyfob is included but I cannot see any new devices nor when creating a scene and I try to add activation device, it times out.

Stuck in the same problem as described above.

The Fibaro Keyfob is recognised (hardware tab) and I can create switches but with the switches I can not communicate.
Adding a device to a scene (Being one of the Fibaro Keyfob switches) does not work, timeout.

What do I have to do (step by step) to define a scene to be executed when I press a button on the Keyfob?
