FAKRO Smart Weather Kit: Protect Your Smart Home From Weather

Smoke Sensor Adapter

In the era of smart technology, homes are becoming increasingly connected and intelligent. From controlling lights and appliances remotely to monitoring security cameras through smartphones, the concept of a smart home has evolved. However, while these advancements offer convenience and efficiency, weather-related challenges persist. Unpredictable weather conditions can impact a home’s safety and comfort. This is where the FAKRO Smart Weather Kit emerges as a crucial solution, combining innovation and intelligence to safeguard smart homes from weather adversities.

Understanding the FAKRO Smart Weather Kit

The FAKRO Smart Weather Kit represents a comprehensive system of cutting-edge sensors and modules tailored explicitly for weather monitoring. It comprises an array of high-quality sensors designed to capture real-time data on various weather parameters. These sensors encompass temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, rainfall, and solar radiation, among others. The integration of these sensors into a cohesive unit forms the backbone of weather intelligence for the smart home.

Here is a list of smart weather modules and sensors provided by FAKRO:

Weather Module ZWMP- The FAKRO Smart Weather Kit 

This module enables the automatic closure of Z-Wave compatible windows in response to rain, wind, or smoke detected by connected sensors such as FAKRO ZRD rain, ZWD wind, and ZFD smoke sensors (available separately). A single module can manage up to 231 receivers in groups.


  • Power supply: 230VAC.
  • Operating temperature: 5°C to 40°C.
  • Dimensions: 160x120x70 mm.

The ZWD Wind Strength Sensor is a handy little device that works alongside the FAKRO Weather Module ZWMP to automatically close your Z-Wave compatible windows when wind speeds reach a certain threshold you set.


  • Dimensions: 80 x 85 mm
  • Power cable: 2 x 0.25 mm2 (5m included)
  • Compatible with the most common Z-Wave home automation controllers like Vera and Fibaro Home Centre.

The detector in cooperation with the ZWMP weather module provides the facility of automatically closing the windows equipped with motors compatible with the Z-Wave system in case of rainfall. This sensor can be used in smoke ventilation systems. The signal from the sensor is taken into account only when the smoke ventilation window is opened for ventilation. In case of emergency opening, a signal from the rain sensor is ignored. The sensor is heated thanks to which its work is unaffected by such interference as mist, dew etc.. The sensor is intended for installation in the open sections of the roof directly exposed to weather conditions.


  • Power Supply: 8-32V DC
  • Dimensions: 55x50x13 mm
  • Power Cable: 3×0.25mm2 (5mb in the package)
  • Weatherproof: Designed to withstand harsh weather conditions
  • Heating element: Ensures consistent performance even in mist, dew, or light snowfall
ZFD Smoke detector

ZFD Smoke Detector

Working alongside the FAKRO Weather Module ZWMP, the ZFD detector automatically closes windows equipped with actuators compatible with the Z-Wave system upon detecting visible smoke, emitted in the initial stages of fire. The detector is powered by 12V DC using the ZWMP module. One sensor supports a 40 m2 room. The smoke detector together with the ZWMP weather module is an additional element that protects the attic in case of fire.


  • Power Supply: 12V DC
  • Dimensions: 109×49 mm
