The z-wave radio in my V1 hub died and a new V3 hub is arriving today. I know I need to exclude my existing devices before I can pair them with the new hub but since I can’t communicate with them via z-wave from the old hub, how can I do that?
Can I just remove them in the IDE, do a factory reset on them and then pair them to the new hub? Can I use the new hub to do the exclude somehow? I’ve been perusing the forum but there’s a lot to take in and I’m more confused than I normally am (which is saying a lot).
So the question is, do I just remove and reset and is an explicit exclude required? If it is, how will I do that with a dead z-wave radio?
Also, has anyone documented the steps they took when migrating to a new hub? If so, any info is appreciated. I’ve got 80 devices, 50 webcore pistons and a handful of SmartApps so I’m hoping lots of planning will prevent what I suspect is going to be complete sh8tshow. TIA.
