Moving from ZB1 to ZB2
I can see that many ZB1 users have similar questions as myself. However, some answers are missing or not very clear to me:
I have ZB1 with over 100 devices. It runs stable more or less and I am happy with this system. However, I do not like the app. I therefore use Imperihome instead.
As support for ZB1 will vanish I bought a ZB2. I plan to register the ZB2 on V3. As I understand I can use the ZB1 as slave. That sounds good. Probably I must buy some licenses (I do not mind).
(Q1) One of the main questions is how to transfer my ZB1 registration to V3 (as slave) without loosing all my rules. To lose rooms and other thing is acceptable.
If this is done, how will my old devices appear on the UI. I think I will transfere the devices gradually piece by piece to ZB2.
(Q2) If the transfer of ZB1 as slave to ZB2 (V3) is not without problems I am thinking of running ZB1 and ZB2 in parallel to gain experience in V3. Is that possible?
(Q3) Finally: What is the best way to go from ZB1 to ZB2? V2 or V3? What are the experiences?
So far, I am happy with the Zipato system, except customer information and support. I do not mind paying for this (support, licenses, tutorials etc.). My devices have been much more expensive than the Zipato controllers.
