Fibaro FIB_FGT-001

I bought a Fibaro thermostat type FIB_FGT-001 this week. It was easy to read in HS3 with the gen-5 stick.
The thermostat is not placed on a radiator, while I like to see first or everything works fine.
1 line gives a failure. This is perhaps I didn't place the thermostat on the radiator.

There are several lines on the device list in HS3. Can someone say what those lines means or do?

I found the page where the firmware could be updated with homeseer.
In august 2018 there was launched a new firmware.
The best way to upgrade the firmware is that directly in Homeseer or is it better to do it with another programm? Like z-wave PC Controller?

It is the same questions.
On the Fibaro Forum, there aren't a lot of people who know something of Homeseer.

Here short my experience with this thermostat in Homeseer.
- There thermostat looks nice. The led lights come up if something is changed by the thermostat. The explenation of the color can you find in de the manual, which is to download on the Fibaro site.
- With a usb contact you can load the battery.
- Also wenn you turn the thermostat by hand, you see also the led light. Colder is colder colors and warming up is warm colors.
- Including this thermostat in Hiomeseer is no problem. Do it with security including and with the gen-5 stick. If you included the thermostat without security, you get failures like in my first attachment.
- Updaten firmware, I didn't do that while I don't know if the garanty is gone.
- In Homeseer you see several lines.
- No functionalities are given or changing on the thermostat or in Homeseer. For instance: If something changes like the the passage of water in the radiator Is it closed or open. You can't see that in Homeseer and on the thermostat.
- I used the thermostat 3 days. The value of the charging of the battery was still 100% after 3 days.
- I you give an new value of temperator in Homeseer, not happens at the thermostat. No light on. No change in the passage.
- I you change by hand the temperatur. You see the led light is coming up to warm colors. But further nothing happens.
- In Homeseer and on the thermostat you can't see or the thermostat properly works.
- Excluding the thermostat is also easy to do with Homeseer
- I got no help for sollutions, only a phone call from Fibaro and supplier to send back the device.

Also I am not sattisfied with the thermostat of Firaro. I will send it back.

Fibaro customer support is non excistent is you do not have a Fibaro base unit.
They don't offer firmware files via their site, email or any other way then via their own base units.
I believe that Robbshop has an updating service. However for just one device that already is expensive it becomes a pricey solution.
