I am currently running openHAB 3 on a RaspBerry Pi 3 using the RazBerry board. I am using a number of FIBARO RollerShutters 2 and 3, FIBARO Single Switch 2 and Sensitive Strips Guard.
I am planning to migrate everything to a new RaspBerry Pi 4 and I am considering to use a new Z-WAVE Controller on the new Pi 4 (probably Nortek or UZB). However, I do not want to exclude the devices and reset and include them on the new controller.
Would this approach work or is there another easy way to migrate the Z-WAVE network?
Setup the new environment Pi 4 and UZB
Include the new environment as secondary controller in the Z-WAVE network on the OLD Pi
Set the new controller to be the main one and the old controller to be the secondary one
Finalize the setup of the new openHAB 3 instance
Remove the OLD controller on Z-WAVE network and disconnect the old system
I don’t mind to recreate all things, items, automations, but as said, I do NOT want to reset the devices.
Thanks in advance to anyone responding.
PS: I read through some of the post covering this topic, but could not really understand or figure out the best approach doing so.
Why don’t you just move the RaZberry board to the new Pi? Should do right away.
If by all means you want to change the Z-Wave controller, then you can install Z-Way from zwave.me, you should be having a license when you have a RaZberry.
Use this tool to backup your RaZberry and to restore the config to the UZB.
I’d move the RaZberry and keep the UZB as a spare part.
I am facing something similar. Moving away from a Raspberry/Razberry config towards a VM in my homelab. Need to move my Things from the RAZberry to the Z-Wave Stick 7 by AEOTEC.
I could get into the Z-Wave network by using the stick in my PC with Zensys Tools and somehow the Stick is now in my network. Moving it to Node 1 seems to be a problem though. Any recommendations ? Did you have any success ?
