@dm-dias Hello and welcome to the community.


First of all you don't need to reset your zwave devices. Every zwave controller can exlude a zwave device, even if this device was never connected to this controller before.


In this case I would do the following.


Connect a long 230V cable to hc3 

Connect hc3 to the internet and setup hc3 to the fibaro cloud

setup and connect the yubii app on the smart phone


Start the hotspot on the smart phone and connect hc3 with it, but use the emergency wlan.

On the smart phone browser connect to hc3 controller as administrator (not the yubii app)

Take the hc3 connected to the long 230V cable and go to every zwave device 

Start the exclude process on hc3 and every zwave device step by step. (Off course this only works if you have a switch connected to pin S1 on a fibaro modul)

Include every zwave device to hc3 one by one.

if you have a recent backup of your HC2 then ask fibaro support to convert the backup for you. you can then restore the HC2 backup onto the HC3.

You would only get devices and would have to create all VD as QA, and re-write all scenes.

This would save on the hassle of removeing and re-adding all zwave devices
