The UCM/Zwave forum is  at http://www.comfortforums.com/forum62/
I have moved your post from UCMs to here

Many users have Fibaro with UCM/Zwave
However note that not all Fibaro products are Z-wave certified, and some of their products are seemingly designed to work with their own networkCheck the certified products in the Zwave aliancehttp://products.z-wavealliance.org/
For example the Fibaro Universal  sensor is not currently in the list of certified products, and it is reported to have problems when polled by UCM/Zwave in not reporting values correctly
And Fibaro HC2 controller does not poll other devices
I am sure some of the other members will be able to advise you on how to learn from a Fibaro controller. Your image is not clear at all, what Fibaro controller do you have?

Hi 
You just need to do "add device" at the Fibaro end and "learn" in Comfigurator. You can wait until the learn status is about 75% (as backs up stuff etc before listening) before pressing add device at the Fibaro side or just up the "add device" timeout setting. 
This will add like any other device at the Fibaro end and at Comfort end it will show all devices on the hc2 or hcl.
Only slight nag in home center is that the ucm doesn't have a template and while I've sent to Fibaro support there is no joy yet so still nag message in notifications area.

thank you Juwi....it works ...
btw i choose fibaro because the user interface is very nice. So if possible i plan use fibaro as main access , so i need comfort to provide the devices and alarm system through ucm ( virtual nodes ), in zwave network I plan to use its dimmer 2 ( due my house lamp only support trailing edge protocol or DALI) and gate opener/roller curtain..... my question : is it applicable ? and any problem compatibility ( especially 2 kind of those devices ) ?

Reply from fibaro regarding cytech as secondary control
.......Unfortunately you can’t make it as a slave.Only Fibaro controllers can work that way because they are using the same kind of software.Fibaro has open API and can be controlled with any third party software.....
So what does ..open api ..mean and anybody has experience that cytech can be fully functional as secondary /bridge controller ? E.g control virtual nodes from fibaro menu ( on off relays or bell or roller curtain )

UCM/Zwave is included using add device like juwi say, you do not add it as secondary controller, this has a different meaning for fibaro. UCM/zwave works as bridge /secondary controller. Just add it and try according to the ucm/zwave manual

Hi All, I currently still have Comfort 1 but have invested a lot in Fibaro with HC2 plus many Dimmer 2 RGBW, radiator thermostats etc. I would like to link comfort and Fibaro but have to spend a lot to upgrade to Comfort II that supports the ZWave UCM.
Reading this thread is it not clear to me how this will function, I have read that Fibaro doesn't support dimmer2 directly as an example. Ideally I would like to add Comfort to Fibaro but what does this give me?
Will I see all of my HC2 connected devices in comfort? What will Fibaro see on Comfort? Will it be able to see the status of my various PIR or door relays?
The other option is to rip out comfort and use all Fibaro sensors but Comfort has been super reliable and Fibaro much less so. I would ideally like to continue with comfort as my alarm but allow it to activate some of the fibaro connected devices such as lighting linked to a door bell being pressed or pir triggered. Is that possible?
Thanks for you help

You add the Comfort UCM/Zwave like another zwave secondary controller
That will allow you to see all the zwave devices which have been added by the primary (HC2)


What will Fibaro see on Comfort? Will it be able to see the status of my various PIR or door relays?
You may not see the zones directly with Fibaro. But yoiu can add virtual Nodes to UCM/Zwave and map to Flags. Zones On and off can set/clear flags so Fibaro will be updated by the relevant flag when the zone changes state. This assumes you want to use HC2 to see the state of virtual zwave nodes in Comfort. If there are catual zwave devices which are mapped to the zones then Zone on and off responses can send status to the zwave devices

The other option is to rip out comfort and use all Fibaro sensors but Comfort has been super reliable and Fibaro much less so. I would ideally like to continue with comfort as my alarm but allow it to activate some of the fibaro connected devices such as lighting linked to a door bell being pressed or pir triggered. Is that possible?
You can map zwave devices to counters and flags. when counters and flags chyange then the zwave device is also changed accordingly. hence doorbell, PIR etc can set flags to send the status to Zwave
Also zone open and close Responses can send commands to zwave to update the zwave device status
