  • Moving homeseer to a new computer having to start over?

    Installed HS on a new machine I set it up with the same IP and everything. I can't control the devices, when I went into the config wizard and ran it it found HS but said i needed to add it as a new device. Anyway around this or do I have to start over?

    I'm not sure what all steps you followed, but you do have to copy everything over from the old computer/folder to the new one. It is talked about in many threads on the board. A quick search pulled up this one:

      Jeff, I did copy everything over. I used BLBackup and unzip all the contents o the new PC after installing the plugins.

      After doing that Imperihome no longer works.

        Wanted to revive this thread... I finally moved HS3 to a new PC.

        When I ran the wizard again I get the following error

        "You tried to connect to a different system by editing an existing one. Please use the "add a new system" wizard.

        So is my original statement correct? I have to start over? Imperhome doesn't allow you to move the system and update?

          the problem is that the plugin use by default "HS3 <machine name>" as the system id. Since your new PC has a different name, IH recognize it as a new system.

          You can overwrite the default system id from the Config/ImperiHome.ini file. Edit this file and add the name of your old system in the [ISS] section:

          Code:
          [ISS]
          system_id=HS3 <your old machine name>
          then restart the plugin

              yeah that's normal, but you need to add it so that your new system looks like your old system from IH point of view.
