Backup

No, there is no date yet but Athom said in one conversation that they are planing to create import / export possibility for migration to new Homey pro in next two months cca. I see this import / export as almost backup solution.

As long as it can reconstruct the mesh networks with same controller ID…
Anybody from Athom who can confirm this?

Probably that’s the problem they’ve been working on all this time…

any news regarding the full backup and restore functionality in homey / homey pro?

For a workaround / Community solution see:

Version 2.3 was released and still no backup. As someone whose Zera died and recently had Homey drop all my Hue lights; backup would have been a huge time saver. My Homey setup is too large and complex to simply just start again.

When there is no backup, any crash make me seriously think about changing platform (as the effort is the same). Don’t make me do it Homey!

Thank you so much for your thread here. I’m a also a newbie. But I would like to know about it.

There is a community-built Backup&Restore app: Community Backup & Restore for Homey v2 [Alpha Version]

Be aware that it is not capable to backup and restore the Z-Wave or Zigbee network. It needs an Athom supported solution for that. There could be a workaround, it is also suggested within that thread, but I could not test is.

Its a shame. We are having 2.3.0 now and no backup and restore function yet :thinking:

To me the most annoying thing is that we don’t even know if Athom is still working on this. They used to have a Trello board but it is gone. There is no roadmap anywhere as I know of and asking for it (https://forum.athom.com/discussion/5480/timeline-update-please) is not getting anywhere as well.

It should have been at the 2.1 release but now we are at 2.3 and it’s still not and we have no clue about when or if we can still expect it.

For something that should have been there from the beginning this is very strange. If my Homey dies now without having a backup I will be sooooooo pissed that I will never return to Homey again.

Any news on the backup front?

Only athom knows… so if you contact them and got a answer back, please share it with us :wink:

Also really looking forward to this. Unfortunately the community back-up is not compatible with my Homey’s software version. I’m taking a Homey resuscitation course as we speak, just to be on the safe side :wink:

Asked Athom support yesterday, got the following response today:

We are working on a backup and restore functionality for Homey, however this is still in the works, and will still take our developers some time to finish.

Please note this is of utmost importance to us as well, as this is a missing core functionality, therefore we strive to implement this soon, whilst keeping the quality and importance of a good functioning implementation in mind.

I trust that this answers your question, which is why I am closing your ticket. If you need additional support, please feel free to re-open your ticket by answering this email.

I wish you a great day and a lot of fun with Homey!

I’m shocked this isn’t available. My Homey reset all on its own due to a faulty USB power supply. I now need to reconnect all my devices and recreate all flows from scratch. I somehow assumed this was all stored in the cloud…

Hmmm, sounds like i hear Rutte… :stuck_out_tongue:

If I end up with that I would not install again until a backup/restore function was in place! Tragic and a keep my fingers crossed on every restart, 200 devices and 400 flows!

So due to the lack of an official app and the incredible need i assume you both have already installed and used the excellent Community Backup & Restore for Homey v2 [Alpha Version] from @Dijker?
