While working from home for eight months now I wanted to toggle a light or run a scene from my Windows 10 laptop. After some Googling I didn’t find an (free) application so I decided to dust off my some C# knowledge from around 2000 and create a Windows tray application myself.
Run a scene or toggle a light on/off from the Windows 10 system tray.
What my application does
The program loads your configured rooms, devices and scenes from your HC2/HC3/HC3 and puts them in a menu in the system tray. Now you can run a scene or toggle a light switch without reaching for a wall switch or your phone. Neat huh!
Just select the
Fibaro.Control.exe file from the assets if you just want to use the program.
💡 Note: There is no setup. Just download and copy the
Fibaro Control.exe file to
Fibaro Control.exe program and log in to your Fibaro HC2/HC3:
The login data is automatically encrypted and saved to the Windows registry hive:
Run a scene
- Right click the HC2/HC3 icon in the system tray and go to the scenes menu.
- Click on a scene to activate it.
Toggle a light on/off
- Right click the HC2/HC3 icon in the system tray and go to the room menu where the light is located.
- Click on a light source to turn it on or off.
Reload scenes and lights
- Right click the Home Center icon in the system tray and click settings.
- Click the reload button.
The following functions I may add in the future:
- Toggle (Fibaro) Wall Plug that is configured as a switch.
- Add an option to read the Unifi Controller to determine your Windows 10 device location in the office/house and show only the rooms in that location.
