What is the best practice when starting over with a Z-wave mesh. Currently my Z-wave devices are not working properly.
Is it possible to exclude the devices without removing them from the RM4 rules? Or do I need to remove the device from all rules first before excluding the device?
However, I would not recommend starting over. Have you contacted support yet for help with fixing your zwave mesh?
probably something along the lines of:
Some people are going to find reasons to migrate a Z-Wave network by hand from one Hubitat Elevation hub to another one. There are steps you can take that will make this a little bit easier than just starting over. In particular, one wants to preserve automations that use Z-Wave devices, and not have to redo them. This would useful for migrating from a C-4 to a C-7. For C-5 to C-7, one can use the Hub Protection Service and avoid all of this work.
First of all, familiarize yourself with thi…
that way you can retain placeholders in your rules and go back and change them after your done with the new zwave.
Also might I add...that the first few zwave devices you add to the mesh are VERY important in my opinion. Make sure they are good strong zwave devices that will most likely end up being your repeaters.
Thanks! Then I will try to add a repeater only device first..
