I am moving to a new house. Some of my z-wave and zigbee devices will remain at the old house; some will move with me.
I've already removed and reset all of the devices in the old house. I also plan to delete all of my configured application because things will be very different at the new house.
I am thinking that the cleanest thing to do is to reset the hub to factory defaults, but I want to preserve all of the custom drivers and custom app code that I've uploaded to the hub.
Is there a way to backup and restore only the device drivers and custom app code that I've uploaded to the hub so I can restore it when I reset the hub?
Not that I am aware of. You could save the code as individual groovy files on your computer. That would at least save you the time from hunting down the ones that aren’t in HPM
@marcaronson408 Create virtual devices and use the swap app to put those into all your rules. So for lets say living room switch, you create a virtual switch called v-livingroom switch and swap into the rule.
Then reset the zigbee and z-wave radios. This will accomplish what you want.
Wow -- swap app is a new one for me -- thanks for the pointer to that -- that is super helpful!
Here is some more context on what I am trying to accomplish:
I am not trying to preserve my physical device configurations and associated apps with the move to the new house because the layout is so different.
I do want to preserve things like my connection to weather statioins, my purple air monitor and other non-zwave / non-zigbee stuff. I also want to preserve all those custom apps and drivers.
I've seen mentions in the forum of people sometimes having issues because their database has become "corrupted".
My goal is to have as clean a start as possible. Does resetting the zigbee and zwave radios clean up the database that sometimes gets corrupted?
If you want to clean the database download a backup to your pc, do a soft reset and restore the backup from your pc. Do the radio resets which will wipe any corruption in the radios, make sure the z-wave stack is updated. This way you can lay out everything fresh at the new house and the devices aren't pairing to their old routes
@rlithgow1, thank you very much -- that did the trick!
