  • Erasing a Z-Wave Controller

    The erase operation deletes all Z-Wave information from your controller. It also removes the Z-Wave node ID from all of your existing Z-Wave devices. After this procedure, your devices will no longer function. You will need to re-add your devices. If you plan on restoring your Z-Wave node information from a backup file, use the "Restore a Network to this Interface option".

  • Importing Z-Wave Devices

    Importing devices will pull the Z-Wave devices from your interface into your Devices page. This can be useful if your system stops working and you do not have a backup, or if you are using an Aeon Labs Z-Stick to add devices that live far away from your HomeSeer system.
