Hi guys, So I am wondering whether it is possible to use a 3rd party USB stick such as the Aeotec Gen5 z wave stick to configure the z wave network with Fibaro HC2? The reason I want to do this is in case the HC2 fails, I can connect the a replacement HC2 to the z wave stick which "remembers" the network, so I don't have to manually add the modules to the new HC2. Basically I might end up with some zwave modules that are not connected to a physical switch and are less accessible, making it a pain to re add them if the HC2 fails (which I believe happens quite rarely?) Thanks
Has anyone some experience with powerring battery operated devices? there are many step down converters in the market converting 5V DC (USB charger) to 3,3V DC - suitable for different battery operated Fibaro modules. Has Anyone tried this? Although after this modification the device will be still recognised by HC2/HCL as battery powerred, it can be a solution in some situations where powerline is present and we can then forget about checking batteries
After a failed firmware update, my HC2 won't start in normal mode, it's stuck on a start screen saying -starting services- .. for hours and days.. Recovery failed also, the connected VGA displays numeros read-errors from usb.. So.. I wonder... If I had a backup of that usb-key, the problem might have been solved..? But that usb-key is said to be delicate.. don't remove and make no changes. Would setting it into a windows pc and clone it, do any harm?? So I might need to buy a new HC2
