Exporting everything from Smartthings?

My Smartthings set up is pretty big and complex. I was wondering if there is a way to export all the behaviors that I’ve created so in case anything happens I can re-create it. I’ve seen reference to log exports within the community but not exporting a record of what I’ve set up. Anybody know how to do this?

Not available at present as an official feature. :disappointed_relieved:

If you used WebCore to create your rules, that has its own backup feature, but then you would probably already know that.

I keep a record of mine just in a regular spreadsheet so at least I wouldn’t have to redo the design part.

Good idea though, an import/export feature would be handy as systems grow.

Indeed. But people have been asking for it, as well as for a network mapping utility, for four years and it’s never been an announced priority, so I don’t think it’s coming anytime soon.

What they have told us multiple times is that the typical smartthings customer has fewer than 15 devices and never uses any custom code. So the need for a backup just hasn’t been as pressing as things like getting the television integration done.


We kind of get angry when a hub dies and we have to redo everything because that function never has been created. I don’t know how to be more of a squeaky wheel over that issue.
