Managing two sites, one using both Vera and the other, SmartThings, there is a pretty big difference on the restore/migrate/multiple hub (on one subnet) situation. I have restored after doing something stupid using Vera’s backup tool which worked flawlessly. They also manage hub migration and/or using the old hub as a secondary hub on the same subnet.
I do like playing with SmartThings. That said, like all things computer related…I know it will break and with no restore/backup tool, I can say 100% I would replace with a VeraPlus box. Config backup is part of every networking device I’ve worked with in recent memory. With no path forward in this department, investing in a restore doesn’t make sense as moving to a different platform (with a proven backup strategy) is no more or less work!
Tim, this really should be a priority
