So I have been avoiding the upgrade. Finally had some time and read through the migration tutorial and it got me to thinking…it seems like a good walk through but seems way more than I need and am wondering if it would just be faster for me to start from scratch.
I don’t use any bindings except exec based on the hardware that I use. I have some 433 outlets getting controlled by a script on my RPi that send signal out a board via GPIO. Pretty basic. I also have a hardware rooted Winkhub 1 that I control by way of a script that hooks into the aprontest function on the Winkhub to control my Cree bulbs and a few Zigbee outlets. The aprontest over ssh is actually very responsive so it works, plus I like the local only availability. Finally, I have a Linux server that I am running a Smart Things bridge to facilitate my Echo devices.
A lot of what I was reading about in the migration tended to be about migrating all of your bindings, and other custom settings. Again, don’t really have any.
Finally, I heard that the 2 version of the exec binding is implemented totally different now? Can I still use the 1 exec binding on 2? It works great for me.
So I’m wondering if trudging through the migration is even worth it for me. I do plan on focusing more on customizing and adding a lot more once I am on OH2 but for now it is simple.
My biggest concern is getting it done in one sitting if possible so I don’t annoy the family with it suddenly not working!
Any thoughts on suggestions?
