Start over on new Raspberry PI

Post by vinisz »


Would like to start with a "clean" installation on another raspberry PI, only keeping all the zwave devices and config.
Is there any guide available on how to backup/migrate/start-over ?
I have no rules or automation to backup, that is all in node-red.

z-wave devices are stored on controller. If you re-install software without resetting of controller, you should have all devices after fresh start. You need got through every device and click on [Call for NIFG] Button on status page in expert mode.

So did I newly as I migrated from Openhab to Z-Way. I just bought and prepared a new sd card with fresh debian installation. Then just installed zway and restarted raspberry pi. After start I saw all devices, but without interview.

The only exception is security - if you delete all files on the Pi, you will loose the security key. So keep your backup files made in Z-Way. If your installation is not secure, you can easily restore everything just based on the Z-Wave chip info
