I have shifted z-wave network controllers successfully a few times, by using Homeseer's HS3 STD "Backup this Interface" and "Restore a network to this Interface" Actions, which appear when you have your z-wave network controller (or Interface, in Homeseer's HS3 parlance) selected in it's z-wave management page.
While I had no trouble backing up from a few different controllers,, I was only able to restore to the following:
- Homeseer Z-NET;
Restoring to the above controllers was very straightforward, for obvious reasons.
- z-wave.me RAZberry;
- z-wave.me UZB.
Restoring to the last two controllers above involved additional steps, because it seems that Homeseer's HS3 current z-wave plugin (version 3.0.2 at the time of this post) does not support current firmwares (5.27 and 5.37 respectively) of the afore mentioned z-wave.me devices.
The extra steps I used are listed in the following homeseer forum post; https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/homeseer-products-services/homeseer-z-wave-products/z-net/1279258-upgrade-to-z-net-unable-to-restore-backup?p=1379555#post1379555
I also tried restoring to Aeotec's z-stick gen5, but Homeseer doesn't seem to allow this operation as the "Restore a network to this Interface" action is not available when you have that interface selected. YMMV.
On a side note, it would be really nice if Indigo itself would allow us to backup and restore z-wave controllers data at will. If Homeseer can do it, I'm quite sure Matt and/or Jay can also pull it off...
