I still don’t know the whole layout of the new house. Still looking. Most likely, the layout will be entirely different, but with a similar square footage in general. Right now I have many recessed lights and lots of light switches (including 3-ways), which may not be the case for the new place. Every house I go into, I am checking how many 3-way switches, ceiling lights, # of bulbs, pulling off the thermostat checking for a C wire, etc. I have no idea what the real estate guy might be thinking of me.
This is true and why I am actually considering doing this. I think what I’m really trying to avoid is having a mess of a setup and having to go and edit every single device within the smartapps. Given the size of the place, I doubt I’ll end up getting orphan devices. What might be an issue, is transferring everything and then run out of light switches to hook up, and then end up having a paired device to my hub to which I can’t give power to remove it.
