Combining HC3 central with HC3 lite



Hi everyone

I have two control panels Home Center 3 lite and Home Center 3. HC3 lite worked before, it is already configured. The question is I would like HC3 to work as Master, I would like to manage it and be able to see the rooms from HC3 lite. If I add HC3 lite to HC3 do I need to restore it to factory settings? Is it possible to add it somehow so that it doesn't delete its settings?

I hope I put the topic in the right place.

So I will bump it up.

I have HC3L, and will be adding HC3 (it is on the way).

How to manage the combining process so after that, HC3 will be the main master device, and HC3L should work mainly as a 'range extender' for z-wave on second floor?

How to move everything from HC3L to HC3?

Hi there, I recently completed a small migration from a HC3L. Unfortunately there isn't an upgrade path that is possible due to the zwave chips being different between the HC3L to HC3.

Luckily for me I use Eventrunner4 by @jgab  so was a painless task to transfer  :).

Good luck with it.

So there is absolutely no possibility to transfer data (upgrade) from HC3L to full HC3 ????

Really ??

So what the Transfer over Fibaro cloud is for ?? I was trying to use this but when I choose source central as HC3L, I can't choose HC3 as destination....

I tried to upload backup from HC3L to HC3 - error when transferring file

I can only add HC3L as secondary, but it will erase it to default...

So only room by room by hand, and digging all devices from the wall ???

I'm tempted to wrap it back up and send it away for refund...:(

Scenes are not a problem - maybe 6-7, all simple.

Associations - non for a moment.

Devices - this is problem... 6 FGT heat controls, 18 zigbee lights over HUE, 7 window blinds (some accesable only from the ladder), watering for garden (3 smart doubles), some light switches (hidden in walls behind the switches), temp sensors. Also problematic for me is to start from scratch with Fronius inverter QA and 3 phase Qubino metter, not to mention about power usage/production history...

So this is doable, but really problematic :)
