    Z-troller swap

    I need to swap the existing Z-Troller with a new one. What is the best way to do this without having to capture all the nodes and re-program the HSTouch interface, etc.
    Appreciate any help I can get...Cheers

    Navigate to the Z-Wave Management Page (Setup>Interfaces>Manage Button) and click the "backup network" button to backup your original Z-Troller’s network information to a file. Switch out the Z-Trollers and restart HomeSeer then using the path above, click the "restore network" button to restore your Z-Wave network back to your new Z-Troller. Restart HomeSeer.

      I think all you need to do is just backup the first controller, then restore that backup to the new controller.

      Now as I type this, I'm wondering if the unique Home ID on the Ztroller is transferred or not during a restore. You might have to test this for us

          moving from a Z-Stick to a Z-troller.. can the move be as easy as backing up the stick and downloading to the troller ???

                Sorry but this is not possible. The Z-Stick does not have the "installer" library and that is required to do a network backup.

                    Correct and don't forget to use the delete functionality prior to adding the devices to your new controller.

                      and i did this why

                      ok.. using HS, delete all devices, change controller, add all nodes to new controller...

                      the instructions say I can use the Z-troller to delete the old nodes, then re-add ??

                        I am missing something

                        went from node to node, removed using z-tool
                        went back to HS box. did import
                        did rescan
                        did optimize

                        all the nodes still show on who am I
                        but optimize shows I removed nodes, count down from 32 to 14 ???

                          do I need to go to status page and delete each node I removed from controller ?

                            moving on.. just noticed
                            I have been removing "devices" not removing "nodes"
                            is this where I went south ??

                              On a related note:
                              When I look inside the backup file, I only see what looks like Zwave and HS config values, nothing that would look like a routing table.

                              I'm assuming the internal routing table will be lost if a new controller is installed (ie your network will probably be unstable for some time until the controller relearns all of the routes (ie multiple Optimize??))
