Overview

After creating a backup, you may need to restore it if you are installing HS4 on a new system or if something happens to your installation. 

NOTE: If you have the Z-Wave GUI plugin installed, you will first need to navigate to Plugins > Z-Wave GUI > Settings. From here, click the Show Legacy Z-Wave Menu toggle, then Save. You can now complete the instructions below as outlined.

Step 1: Restoring your HS4 Configuration

  • A) In the HS4 web interface, navigate to Tools > Backup/Restore
  • B) Click the RESTORE... button, then the UPLOAD BACKUP... button in the resulting pop-up.
  • C) HS4 will now open the file manager on your computer. Locate and select the backup zip file on your computer and click Open.
  • D) Once the upload is complete, click EXECUTE.
  • E) HS4 must now be restarted. You can restart HS4 by closing the HS4 program window in Windows or from Tools > Linux > Restart System on Linux-based systems. 

Step 2: Restoring Z-Wave

If you are using the same Z-Wave interface as when your backup was created, try controlling devices from the Devices page as they may already be set up and running. 

NOTE: If you have the Z-Wave GUI plugin installed, you will first need to navigate to Plugins > Z-Wave GUI > Settings. From here, click the Show Legacy Z-Wave Menu toggle, then Save. You can now complete the instructions below as outlined.

  • A) Navigate to Plugins > Z-Wave > Controller Management. Expand your interface in the Z-Wave Interfaces section by clicking the arrow to the left of its name. 
  • B) In the Actions menu, select Restore a Network to This Interface. A drop-down menu will appear, click it and select the most recent file. By default, Z-Wave backup files are timestamped.
  • C) Click Start. This process may take some time to complete, the log will finish with a "Done!" message when the restore is complete.
