It will not work with Zipabox 1 as stated several times by Zipato.

Yes, I know what they said. But they didn't say why it won't work...


My question is... Zipabox1 will not work in V3...


because...:

Zipabox1 will not be able to move the firmware ...

or

Because the Zipabox1 serial number will not be admitted..

Hello,


Zipabox1 can not be added as the first/only box on the new server, Zipabox1 can be added on our new server but ONLY as a slave box and not the master, zipabox1 has limited hardware specifications and can not run our new firmware which handles such tasks like running a system.


If you for example have Zipamicro/Zipabox2/Zipatile1/Zipatile2 as master, you are able to add zipabox1 as slave.

...do i understand correctly? I need to buy again and again new hardware, to be supported...?

I need a "new" device to support my "old" device(s)?


What's with the Subscriptions (unlimited Brands, unlimited Devices, update of the Rule-Creator, ....) i allready bought in the "old" Cloud....?

I think the same thing !!!

It's not correct for old customers, to buy a new device to support old device...

And yes, what about the subscriptions ?

.....and what's with the old modules - EnOcean, 433MHz, Zigbee....?

They're still are not working correctly this time...

I run Zipabox1 with not too much problems. I do not mind to buy a new more powerful device. However, I do not want to add all my devices (more than 100) to the new box and to rewrite all my rules.

Does running Zipabox1 as slave for Zipabox2 (V3) solve this problem?

Hello Zipato Friends and Zipato Team,

first - Happy new year - a new year with the app wa all be waiting for an so far it works verry well - but - everybody is Talking About - Zipabox 1 to run as Slave an the Zibabox 2 as Master - i habe over 180 devices running - i would be great to have a tutorial to do the Master and Slave Setting (NOT a tutorial for Masters ;-) - a tutorial that works for everyone.

Kind Regards Steffen

I think we can not use our Zipabox1 as slave, if we don't buy a "multiserver system" license. So we have to waste more and more money if we want to keep our Zipabox1 updated.

So the expense is the same as if we don't use the Zipabox 1...

Zipabox 2 + Multiserver license

or

Zipabox 2 + Zwave module


So, a Zipabox1 customer has to expend the same as a new customer

Solution: run away from zipato, or stay as-is.

personally I'm experimenting with home assistant. Yes, I'll loose some features like the rules creator or the easy to use interface.. but nothing that is mandatory.

Buying zipabox2, buying multiserver option.. and become AGAIN a beta test user for free. No thanks.

I bought MultiServer, using Zipatile 1 as master and 2 Zipaboxes 1 as slaves. It works the same as cluster on V2.

i have same setup as you, i already use cluster option but do i need to upgrade to multiserver / System ?

what were youre steps to switch to V3?

Yes you need to buy Multiserver. To move to V3 you just unregister your controllers in V2 and register them in V3, but beware! Everything doesn't work in V3 yet and moving back to V2 seems to be very hard.

Thanks for your answer. What about you're licences?

Do you have to buy Multiserver for every box and tile or just once for all?

And I would also like to know about the licences we have already paid for.

No i bought one (49 coins), i don't know if it attaches to the master (zipatile) or for the system created but it was sufficient.

I'm customer since 2014, I was happiness about Zipato with multiple possibilities and evolutivities.

But these two last years I have been disappointed ! Evolutions and developments are very very slow, no answer by zipato in the forum...

And now, I discover that I need to buy new device to be compatible with new version.

Personally, I will wait one year without any change and investment because a next protocol will be defined this year by Apple, Amazon, Google and Zigbee (Ikea, Legrand, NXP, SmartThings, Schneider Electric, Signify, Silicon Labs, Somfy, Wulian, etc...).

Is zipato dead ? Or is it just a bad impression ?
