- Issue of the topic: Moving Zwave Stick from Rpi 3B OpenHAB 2.1 to new RPi 3B system with fresh install of OpenHAB 2.5.2-1
I had installed OpenHAB 2.1 a few years back on an RPi 3B, under Raspian Wheezy and had an Aeotec Z-Stick working with my one and only Zwave device, a Schlage Lock. For various reasons, the system has been down for some time.
I decided to create a new system, with a fresh install of Raspian Lite Buster on another RPi 3b. I’ve been following the installation instructions for 2.5, including figuring out that I need the Zulu package zulu-embedded-8 when it couldn’t find zulu-8 given in the install example on the Zulu website. You might clarify that under the directions for the Zulu install.
I’m planning on moving the Z-Stick to the new system, once I research what it was that I did a few years ago to get it working since I don’t remember the steps.
My question is, is there anything I need to do, to insure a smooth transition of the Zwave lock to the new system? I vaguely remember setting up a security key between the Z-Stick and the lock.
I’m wondering if that’s still stored in the Z-Stick, and if the new install of 2.5 can use that or is there something I need to do to reset the Lock and the Z-Stick to generate a new key? So far, I haven’t moved the Z-Stick over to the new system, or started OpenHAB after the installation. I’m wondering if there is anything I need to do before plugging the Z-Stick into the new system and starting OpenHAB 2.5 for the first time.
It’s been quite awhile since I played with Debian and OpenHAB so I’m back to stumbling around as a beginner.
