Multiple fibaro hubs

In version 0.83.0 fibaro hub component was added, great news. But I have 3 fibaro hub to control my complete house (3 separate buildings)
One HC2 and 2 HCL.
Currently it is only possible to have one hub, I would like to have possibility to run 3 hubs in paralell.

Hi Jonas,

Currently it only supports one hub, but in the future I’ll wrap my head around multi-hub support. Are they unconnected, separate, independent systems? So you didn’t add them to each other through gateway integration?

Cheers,

Hi Peter
I have used the gateway integration in fibaro HC2 before, but it works quite poorly (sensors just stop updating), so currently I access each hub directly REST API from home assistant.
This way I get updated values.

But I really like what you have done with the fibaro hub component, so it would be easier to integrate all three hubs with that, if it is supported.

I understand if this is not high prio as I think I have a more complex setup than most (due to different buildings with more distance than z-wave can cover), but just a wish.

Hi Jonas,

I’ll rework the component into the new config flow model and with that enable support for multiple hubs. But my life has been very busy lately, so I’m not sure when I’ll get to it.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi Peter

Wonderful that you reply, it is not in any way urgent. The implementaiton as it is now have helped me a lot.

But of course looking forward to the new implementation.

Hi Jonas,

I’ve created a PR with mulitple Fibaro HC support. Could you test it?

Hello Peter

I would be more than happy to do so, but I don’t know how ?

I normally only update to the released versions of hass.io (and I have some custom components), but I have never downloaded code directly.

Can you guide me, then I can update t this version and test it,

In what release will this be implemented?

Is this supported now?

Support for multiple hubs was added in 0.86 according those particular release documents.

… and it works perfectly (running 1 home center and 2 home center light in different buildings).

Hi can you advise me how to set up communication from two Fibaro gateways?
/config/configuration.yaml
fibaro:
gateways:
- url: http://192.168.0.11/api/
username: user
password: pass
how to add another?

well thank you

The way I have it setup for three gateways:
fibaro:

  gateways:

    - url: http://192.168.0.xx/api/

      username: !secret fibaro_user

      password: !secret fibaro_password

    - url: http://192.168.0.xx/api/

      username: !secret fibaro_user

      password: !secret fibaro_password

    - url: http://192.168.0.xx/api/

      username: !secret fibaro_user

      password: !secret fibaro_password
