Animus Heart?

Fibaro dimmer 2 - use s2 to control another dimmer


I have several Fibaro dimmers and I am trying to get one of them to control another one through the s2 (secondary switch).

At my switch(A) i have enabled s2. Do anyone know how to make it control the other switch?

I can read it has something to do with association - but can’t find where to change it in the animus heart.


I also wonder about almost the same.
I want s2 to control scenes in animus… Anyone with a solution?

Hi Jesper,
I’m curious, since you use Dimmer 2, do you also use Homekit? My Animus only “send” one Multilevel Control to Homekit, but there’s two dimmers on the Dimmer 2, I would love to see them both in my Home-app… Any clues?

Hi Erik,

I use HomeKit and Goggle home but haven’t managed to find a solution.

Basically I think the issue is with animus. Animus doesn’t see the 2nd switch.

It could be interesting to hear from the developer?

Does anyone know anything about S2 in the Dimmer 2 yet?

By setting association a Z-wave device can send a command directly to another Z-wave device. You can set associations from the Animus Webterminal, https://animushome.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AHK/pages/1212554/Web+Terminal

Once you have opened the terminal type the following commands

enter zwave
associations -help

This list information about how to set associations for Z-wave devices. You can read more on associations on this post https://talk.animushome.com/t/help-with-association-groups/

See the manual of your Fibaro Dimmer 2 to which group S2 will send the command. Once you find the group you need to place the node you wish to control into that group.
