Inclusion, Exclusion, and Factory Reset procedures

Feel free to add to the list. Once you know these, migration is an absolute breeze.

First, a relatively quick way to include/exclude
Z-Wave devices from your hub is to use an Aeon Minimote, Z-Stick, or similar device.

Using an Aeon Minimote for exclusion:

Exclusion:

  1. Put Minimote as close as possible to the device
  2. Press "-", or "Remove", depending on which version you have
  3. The Minimote will blink red
  4. Perform the exclusion procedure for your specific device
  5. The Minimote will light solid blue for a few seconds, and then continue blinking red
  6. You can now stop, or continue to exclude more devices. Wait for the red light to stop blinking before inclusion.

I didn't have luck with the Minimote's Inclusion Mode with HE, but it will also manually with the inclusion procedures below as long as it's not too far away from the hub or a repeating node. *See JDRoberts addition below this post.

You can also do this for Z-Wave devices with an Aeon Z-Stick:

Inclusion:

  1. To initiate Inclusion-Mode, unplug the Z-Stick from the USB connector and then tap the
    button. (The LED will blink slowly.)
    Note: While in Inclusion-Mode, the Z-Stick is in perpetual add/inclusion. There is no
    need to press the button on the Z-Stick again to include each new device.
  2. To include a new Z-Wave device into the network, simply go to the device with the ZStick
    and press the button on the device you wish to include. (The LED on the Z-Stick
    will blink fast during a network neighbor discovery and stay solid for 3 seconds to
    indicate successful inclusion of the device into the network.)
  3. The LED will then return to blinking slowly, indicating readiness for further device
    inclusions. Repeat step 2 for each device as you wish to include.
  4. Tap the Z-Stick button to turn it off.

Exclusion-Mode : Deleting/Removing/Excluding Z-Wave Devices from the Z-Wave Network

  1. To initiate Removal-Mode, unplug the Z-Stick from the USB connector. Then press and
    hold down the button for approximately 3 seconds. (The LED will transition from
    blinking slowly to blinking fast.)
    Note: While in Removal-Mode, the Z-Stick is in perpetual removal/exclusion where it
    will remove Z-Wave devices from the networks they are currently paired to. There is no
    need to press the button on the Z-Stick again to exclude each device.
  2. To remove a Z-Wave device from the network, simply go to the device with the Z-Stick
    and press the button on the device you wish to remove. (The LED on the Z-Stick will
    immediately stay solid for 3 seconds to indicate successful removal from the network.)
  3. The LED will then return to blinking fast, indicating readiness for further device
    exclusions. Repeat step 2 for each device as you wish to exclude.
  4. Tap the Z-Stick button to turn off.

The minimote is doing a "general exclusion" for the exclude, so it doesn't have to be on the same network as the other Z wave devices.

To do an include, you must first have excluded the end device so that it is a "blank slate" again.

Then the minimote must be already joined to the hubitat network. At that point, if hubitat recognizes it as a secondary controller, if it does, you will then be able to issue the include from the minimote and have it join the hubitat's network. If the minimote is still a member of your previous controller's network, the include won't work (or rather, you would be re-adding it to your previous network).

I don't know if hubitat recognizes minimote as a secondary controller or not, though.

Yes, it's known as a secondary controller.
