Just did a migration from old homey (early 2016) to homey pro.
And it was a very smooth process. Quite impressed to be fair.
I’m also one of those who have been highly critical of the missing backup feature until now. And I still think a free backup alternative to local storage should be available. So I can understand the voices raising that view.
But on the other hand I feel that the homey subscription is very fairly priced. And I personally will be happy to pay 10 bucks a year for it. I would do that even though fee alternatives where available.
Hi Dijker, with the latest public version. I do not get to see the backup option. I did purchase the homey+ subscription and I have updated homey to version 4.0.0 rc6
Can I get the apk somewhere of version 4 app?
What is the public version you get in the appstore? That should be at least version 4, the version that support backup.
Athom does not provide apk files, you could contact support if you can’t install the latest version.
The answer is probably no, but does the 4.x firmware also include a ‘local backup’ functionality? (as in, a local config dump, which you can push back via the app/webinterface/cli/whatever if everything went belly-up)
Personally (not speaking for anyone else but myself ) I don’t care about the history/insights, only my settings/users/flows/apps/devices/etc/etc, which would probably be less than 1MB of compressed data I suppose?
