Migrating to M1 Mini - checklist

Planning to bite the bullet...

Currently on Indigo 7.5 on an Intel Mini.

I'm planning to move this 7.5 to the M1 without disturbing the current, other than deactivating license, so that I have a fallback in case things go sideways.

Z-stick and Insteon Interface will move too.
Planning to run this for a bit to confirm all good before upgrading to latest Indigo.

Had considered redoing my Z-Wave 100+ devices on a new stick. Currently on Z-Stick (Gen5). Have not found anything on the forum re a stick that has better backup. Is there one that I missed?

Decided to go with current Z-Stick to postpone a redo for now.

Any gotcha's to watch out for?

That all sounds good to me. Definitely smart to do it in stages. After you have it running on the M1 definitely get the Indigo 2021.1 version since it is M1 native (7.5 will run well under Rosetta while you test it though).

The Gen5 Z-Stick is still a good choice IMO. There are newer versions, but if your current setup is working I personally wouldn't bother changing hardware.

Thanks Matt.

I'm keeping the new stick as a spare, stayed with old.

I used the Apple Migration Tool to populate the M1. Everything fired up nicely.
Only change was serial port, as expected.
Only gotcha was that Lat/Long went to somewhere 'down under' instead of keeping the old. After fixing that all sunrise/sunset stuff worked as it should :D

Unless just my imagination, I think even 7.5 runs smoother/faster on the M1.

Got Reflector working too in preparation of next step to latest and greatest.
