    Thank you for all responding. While it's disappointing to learn that HS4 still does not have its own restore function, I'm glad to read that both the Aeon and Zwave.me have its own restore functions. When looking at the restore functions I think I would prefer Aeon's, it just appears easier to understand + operate for this non-techie.
    In addition it looks like the Aeon has a build-in battery which should (in theory) make it easier to walk around the house and registering any new zwave devices.

    Thanks again for your help and time.

    Sorry I misread your post as saying that there was a restore option. I think there is a typing error, the 'be' should probably be 'no' ?

    Message #3

    That means there is still be restore option in HS for us European users

    Hi Ian

    That is good to know, but just to confirm, you are saying you have tested the HS network restore on a zwave.me stick or did you swap your existing stick with the new one in the Z-Net?

    Also, is it possible to note the stick version and firmware version?

    A one stop shop for all your questions : https://www.vesternet.com/pages/what-is-z-wave
    • Aeon Z-wave Plus Gen 5 / model ZW090-C keeps the device data on board but sadly your findings
      have backup and restore functionality. I read here that restore could be a problem in combination with Homeseer?
      could be true, there is no function to restore them should you choose to transfer them to a new server) For other systems you just stick the USB in and your devices are created automatically ( Aeon Z-wave Plus Gen 5 / model ZW090-C == has a learning/pairing button) That is, if it is used as the central controller I think it should be able to carry your devices to your new build.

    Which Zwave stick for Europe?

    So today I took the plunge and bought a HS4Pro software license. I have been running HS2pro for about 10 years and figured it's about time to go more modern...
    My current zwave stick is the Aeon S2 from about 9 years ago. Which still works fine with my Schneider Merten switches. However, that stick probably does not support the latest version of Zwave.

    Hence my question: what is now considered to be the 'best' stick for European Zwave? Ideally it should have:
    • support for legacy-versions of Zwave
    • have backup and restore functionality. I read here that restore could be a problem in combination with Homeseer?
    Two sticks I have come across:
    • Aeon Z-wave Plus Gen 5 / model ZW090-C
    • Zwave.me stick
    Any tips much appreciated, thank you in advance!
