I have about four Aeotec Z-Wave repeaters stationed at intervals from my C-7 hub. One of my reasons for upgrading to C-8 is to get more Z-Wave devices connecting directly to the hub - I'm looking at you, iBlinds!
Should I remove my repeaters?
Should I remove (just unplug) them before my final cloud backup?
Should I do a formal, Z-Wave remove before my final backup?
Should I do my final backup and then unplug them before starting up the C-8?
Should I just ignore the whole issue and follow the instructions to go C-8 and see if everything just works before I create new problems that don't exist? As I type this that seems like the right answer.
