    Need to replace Z-Net with a Aeon Labs stick

    I am having lots of problems with my zwave network (unresponsive devices, long delays etc). I have ruled out the zwave PI, I did go back to .190 but that did not help, so I've gone back to .249. I had switched off a lot of my modules to rule them out. Now I need to rule out my Z-Net. I have a spare Aeon Labs stick. Whats best to move my devices (68 nodes) over for testing purposes ? Can I backup the Z-Net and restore to the Aeon Labs ? Or import from the Z-Net ? Ideally if my Z-Net is ok I want to go back to it after I have tested it.

    That gives me a page not found error.

    Anyway, even after deleting the zwave2.db file, another erase and restore network, upgrade to .489, polling turned off, I still have the same problems. I am running out of ideas (and patience)

    If I have issues again I might give .489 beta a try. Where can I find the .458 msi in case I want to go back ?

    You may be right - I had seen something on the forums that .489 addressed some queuing issues, but that may have all been conjecture - maybe its coincidence that some of the problems I was having (including queue overflow messages int he log) improved or disappeared when I installed .489 -- perhaps the install fixed an issue somewhere else. Its anybody's guess as to why, but nonetheless, HS3 is working better for me now.

    Thats what I thought from reading the post. So I'll leave that alone for the moment and hope my system stabilizes... Last night I did have a few errors in the log, but all devices executed the commands, but some with delays. But no other errors since

    I'm also using the latest beta Z-Wave plugin. The .489 beta seems to improve on some queuing problems with HS and has made my system much more responsive. You might want to give it a try before you go through the more difficult problem of changing interfaces.
    I did another zwave backup and restore. 26 Hours and its still running... not sure it will last though. I had a look at the .489 beta. I think the improvements with queuing are just for event callback though ? Or would that be for zwave too ?

    With regards to moving over to the Aeon labs, I thought thats what I needed to do. Just one thing, If I do that, wouldnt I try to pair my nodes with 2 controllers ? And if yes, I thought you could only pair with 1 controller. Also, if I do that and go back to the Z-Net, don't I have to erase the Aeon labs somehow ?
    No, you don't want to pair with two controllers. In theory, Z-Wave allows multiple controllers, but its actually quite difficult to implement in practice. Its better to restore your network to a new controller - the new controller, with the restored network, will take on the ID of the old one and your nodes should not "see" a difference.

    Thats more a last resort option then, as it it doesnt improve my situation I would want to go back to Z-Net. Is there anything compatible with a Z-Net restore ? I think they stopped selling the Z-nets in Europe

    I'm running the Z-stick on my SEL. In the actions under the Z-wave plugin there is not an option for restore. There are options for;

    Import Node info from controller and scan devices
    Receive Network from another controller

    Not sure how well these perform and if they will work, I've never done it.

    That probably means that I cannot restore to it from the Z-Net
