Migrating from Fibaro Home Center 2 to Homey
I am trying to mentally prepare for the arrival of the Homey, and what procedure I should follow to migrate my existing Z-wave equipment, of which I have a lot, to Homey. I know it is possible with Z-wave to have multiple controllers. I am hoping that I can join the Homey to the Z-wave network as a secondary controller, have it 'learn' all the equipment that is already present in my existing Z-wave network, and then make the Homey the main controller and demote the Home Center 2 to a secondary controller, and then get rid of the HC2 entirely.
The reason I want to do this is because otherwise I am afraid I will have to unassociate every single Z-wave device manually, meaning I have to open up wall sockets and devices to get at the Z-wave micromodules I've installed to press the little buttons on them to confirm removal, and then manually associate them with Homey again, pressing those same buttons again to associate the devices with the new Z-wave network. I'd really love to avoid doing that.
Has anything like this been tested yet or is there any information available on what the procedure would be? I am talking about roughly 80 devices all around the house.
Any hints or tips you could give me would be much appreciated.
