What the title says. I noticed this morning that all of the scheduled “lights out” actions that happen after midnight or so hadn’t happened. Figured the V3 had wedged…it happens from time to time. So I power-cycled it. It came back up, z-wave light is on, but the only devices that show up in the UI5 GUI (or that I am able to control via Homewave) are pseudo-devices…garage doors, blinds, cameras. Everything z-wave is MIA.
The GUI says it made a backup last night, which would hopefully imply that it made the one the night before to the server that I could restore from. But I see nothing in setup->backup that suggests such backups are being kept anywhere. There’s nothing listed. I have a local backup from over a year ago that I am loathe to restore to, as there’s a lot of pseudo-device jiggering since then. I asked it to create a local backup, just to see where it gets created, and it said it did it, but I don’t see it anywhere.
I recall in the dark ages something similar to this turning out to be that Vera had forgotten the house code. There’s one listed under settings->zwave, and everything there looks okay.
I guessing there are no usable backups being created/stored for this device automagically. I am concerned that my attempts to create one locally seem to go off to la-la land…I certainly haven’t found them. I can restore from one of my ancient backups, fix everything that breaks, and would then like to create a local known/good backup for future use.
Any suggestions? Somewhat dead in the water at the moment.
