I’m trying to figure out how to add my Aeon Z-Stick as a secondary controller, maintaining the Zipabox as the primary, so that I can build up my rules in OH with all my devices whilst the Zipabox carries on running. I think I know how to do this: set Learning mode in the Z-Wave PC Controller software and start inclusion mode in the Zipabox.

My question is what happens after that. There seems to be no way to tell the Zipabox to shift the primary role to the Z-Stick, and only the primary can switch roles, right?

So what would my options be? With all my rules set up, delete all devices from the Zipabox, reset the Z-Stick, and then add them all again to the Z-Stick, set up as primary? And then modify the items names in the rules as needed?
