Transferring Razberry board from one Raspberry Pi to another one

Post by jni » 10 Oct 2019 11:42

Hi,

we have a use case where we should be able to pair a few nodes with a Razberry board attached to a Raspberry Pi 3,
and then later install the same Razberry board into another Raspberry and start using the Zwave network with those earlier paired nodes.

The idea is to build a "production line" where we always use the same Raspberry Pi to create many Razberry board & nodes sets,
and later install them into actual customer devices without a need to do any pairing at those target devices.

Is this a possible scenario, and what SW (if any) should be installed on those target Raspberries to make the an earlier paired Zwave network working on those devices?

One addition to the description: in the target devices we would be using our own Python application to communicate with the Razberry board.

I would say if you use Z-Way as a system this should work.
You always need the same installation basis, e.g. Stretch and the same Z-Way Version 3.0.0 on your devices.
Then you install everything on your original Raspberry Pi, pair your devices and use both backup functions from standard menu and from expert menu.
These 2 backups should be enough to install them on another raspberry pi with another Razberry board.

Then you must reset your original rasberry pi and the original razberry board to start another installation.

I´m sure that you may get this working also with your Phyton application.
