My first expérience with Homey pro 2023.
Today I received my Homey Pro 2023 and immediately prepared it for a migration from Pro 2016 to Pro 2023. I first put Homey into setup mode, then installed the new beta iOS app. In the app, press Home in the upper left corner of the home screen and then add the Homey Pro 2023. After this, you can add the Wi-Fi network or the Ethernet cable. Then you will be asked if you want to restore an existing backup. Up to this point, everything went well for me. All devices, variables, and apps were restored properly, except for the flows. Only the advanced flows that I had created were restored. I couldn’t restore all the other flows, which for me were the majority. I tried this multiple times with four different backups, but unfortunately, I didn’t get any results. I did send a ticket to Athom with diagnostics
What a mess… also experiencing a lot of problems. This is rushed and far from done. The app is super sluggish, zigbee isnt available, all my flows are scrambled and not working. Most of the apps are not functioning properly yet. Okay its a beta, but is feels like an alpha stage.
The hardware is fine I guess, I don’t notice the upgrades but should be fine.
Its a very rough start for sure. I’m not in the mood for troubleshooting and paving the (long) way to getting this back to the old state.
P.S. isn’t an option anyway because my ‘old’ homey died while plugging it in. It now lies next to its predesessor which died the same way. Two Homeys down and a far from finished ‘pro’ with paralizing software
It wil work, did change from homey 2016 to homey 2023 an it went well. Knew dat i had to reinstall my zigbee devices.Al zigbee’s are connected and stay connected after restart homey. Only one app not working for me yet pioneer app …Homeydash is working to.
Despite all the warnings from developers that Homey isn’t ready for public consumption yet, Athom went ahead and shipped anyway, probably hoping that all the Early Access buyers would understand what they were getting in to. And a fair amount of those buyers were very vocal here in the forum, demanding that Athom should ship their precious Homey despite it not being finished yet.
In other words: you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t
no problem, I said I understand it is in Beta. but the hardware doesn’t work. I don’t have Zigbee, I dont have Z-Wave. My second homey died due to power adapter issues (AGAIN) so I’m on my third Homey the so called PRO and it is a paperweight.
I spend my Sunday transferring devices from old Homey to hp2023. And starting re-building flows from scratch. I must say I had barely any issues, only 2 zigbee motion sensors I had to repair a few times. I must say, all flows are executing much quicker now and I have no issues with the speed of the app. So really happy! I transferred 22 zigbee devices, 3 zwave devices and 7 klikaan devices. Further I have rebuilt 15 advanced flows and have 13 apps installed
Same experience here. Super impressed with the speed and the advanced flows. I did not do a backup restore from my old to new homey as I thought it might be a good idea to revamp my flows and design. So I took the weekend to add the devices and have my “old” flows on one side of the screen whilst I familiarized myself with Advanced flows and converted them into a (way more efficient) great working new built.
All in all very happy with the new homey (yes there are still issues/missing cards etc), it’s aesthetics and performance
