Home assistant plug in Combee 2 to Conbee 3 migration

Hi everyone,

Finally after a long time we got the plug in for home assistant updated, now on version 2.25.3!

I want you first to congratulate you guys on the software upgrade I can see a significant drop in memory consuption and CPU used by the plug in - all is working great. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I have two questions that would help me migrate my large network (200 devices)

  1. What is the procedure for the HA plug in to migrate from Conbee 2 to Conbee 3?
  2. Are there pending any Conbee 3 firmware fixes, like Aqara devices connectivity, battery draining issues etc.

Many thanks!

Hi my recommendation would be:

  1. Create a backup via Phoscon App
  2. Unplug the ConBee II and close deCONZ
  3. Update the ConBee III firmware to Version 0x26500900 as described in Wiki: Update-deCONZ-manually.
  4. Start deCONZ again to connect to ConBee III
  5. Load the backup (see ConBee III Migration).

Many thanks @manup will give it a go over the weekend!

did not had yet time to allocate to do the migration, will look over the next few weeks. In the mean time I will enjoy the best deconz ever on Conbee 2 :slight_smile: it is dam fast and stable !
