V2 hub / controller shift (for future "Hub to Hub migration")

Does the v2 hub support controller shift? Since the v1 to v2 hub is such a fiasco for many people, It would ease my mind a bit to know if things will be better with a v2 to v3 (or even samsung smart tv).

I believe not. @duncan would know.

We’re still working on a seamless migration process that backs up the z-wave and zigbee networks and restores them on a new hub. It will also be useful when replacing a malfunctioning hub. It hasn’t been in active development lately because of work on the stability of hub v2, so I can’t estimate when it will be available.

Controller shift doesn’t work as well as migration because it doesn’t update devices’ associations to the new hub.

Any update on that topic please?

After getting put on the back burner, the migration feature was never prioritized again, though lately there has been some discussion about doing a simpler version that would still allow migrating without having to rebuild absolutely everything.

We’ve been discussing that here since September 2015 :grimacing::smirk: … But good to hear!
