I have been using an old Windows laptop to get openHAB working and am happy with the way openHAB works, but this machine isn’t a good server long-term, so I’m starting a migration to a Raspberry Pi 2. I’m pretty confident that I’ve got a good installation of openHAB and have transferred my items, sitemap, persistence, etc.
However I know that with z-wave you need to be careful to get everything just right, or things get really messy, so I would appreciate some advice on moving my Aeon Labs Z-Stick Gen 5 from the Windows computer to the Pi2.
Can you advise whether I need to exclude all the devices from my z-wave network on the PC, before transferring the z-stick over to the Pi. Or will the Z-Stick hold all the details of the network and carry them across to the Pi without doing all the exclusion and re-inclusion?
I am keen to get it working first time, as our heating and hot water depend on the z-wave. The rest of the household won’t be happy if I get it wrong and we have a week without our creature comforts!
