    Default Easiest way to migrate from HS1.7 to G5?

    I'm finally ready to test this out and replace my HS1.7 setup.

    What is the easiest way to migrate my devices & event from HS1.7 to G5?

    thanks

    Well describe your hardware and what your looking at as far as functions. I have recently migrated all my functions over.

    W800 with DS10 and Motion Detectors
    Powerlinc USB X10 interface using the new Device Manager
    Slink-e for IR and Slink control of my audio equipment
    NetcallerID for Caller ID
    Homeseer Voices still work as I use Paul for TTS
    Weather is from G5 and beats the weather plugin I was using under HS

    I just installed G5 and started migrating a function at a time. It worked fine with HS until I finally had everything under G5 then I turned off HS. Even the Slink-e was able to be used by both.

    Ask questions... harleydude and I will try and help from a HS perspective.

    Not even close... sorry

    If you have a Slink-e you can use the CDE device files but thats about it and other than that you will have to redo everything from scratch. Events are handled so much differently in G5. It wouldn't be any different if you decided to go with CQC, Powehome, Mainlobby.... there sometimes is no EasyButton like on a Staples commercial.
