Zwave Cloner

This tool is a graphical user interface using the ZWAVE.ME ZME Programmer tool to allow you making your Zwave Controller backup & restore.

!!! Carefully follow these instructions !!!

1) First of all, be sure not to have your Zwave Controller next to any ZWave module already paired with it.
In case you cannot power off all modules then go by walk, bike, car, or anything else but get your Zwave Controller somewhere else that will not disturb it.

2) Connect the Zwave Controller into your computer.
If the device is not recognized by your computer then install the Zwave Controller Driver (check the button at the end of this page)

Download link: ZWAVE.ME ZME_UZB1 Driver

3) The Zwave Controller should automatically be detected and selected by the tool and basic information of the Zwave Controller will be displayed.

4) For a backup, click on the 'Backup' button and specify a file name to save the NVM binary data of your Zwave Controller.

5) For a restore, click on the 'Restore' button and select a previously created NVM binary file to restore your Zwave Controller.
This operation will fully restore the Zwave Controller NVM including the ZWave network topology.

  1. THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!

    I have a HUGE Z-Wave network and was looking for this so much.
    I didn’t backup it up yet but will do this week-end when I will have time for a walk as you suggest :-).

    Question, I know it goes slightly again your graphical work, but most of us are using Domoticz (with a raspberry) with Z-Wave controller. Therefore, would it be not interesting to integrate your tool in the OpenZwave USB Controller functions ? That would be just amazing to do this from Domoticz directly.

    I let you think about it but still a HUGE thank you for your work !

    1. Thanks for your feedback Samuel.
      About Domotics, their team could adapt this in the environment as you suggest it.
      The ZMEProgrammer tool from ZWAVE.ME exists in Linux version so I suppose this would be easy to embed into Domotics.
      The issue I see is more about how to disable the Zwave Stick while doing the backup … that’s why you are going to have a walk right 🙂

  2. Oh sorry, last practical question.

    Let’s imagine I do a backup. Then my UZB key brakes for whatever reason. Is it possible to restore the backup on a new UZB Key and all will be back as before ??? I recall a story about Z-Wave unique ID that can be copied via Z-Way software (there is also a backup function), but does your tool also get the Z-Wave unique ID back on the new UZB controller ?
    Thanks a million for your answer
    Sam

    1. Yes you can do that but don’t restore on your original Zwave stick…
      I would suggest you buy another Zwave stick and restore it using the backup made from your original Zwave stick.
      Even do it immediately to prove your backup is good.
      This because the day that you will need it you will be happy to have a working backup!
      Your restored Zwave stick will be identical to the original one, ID & network topology.

  3. Bonjour,
    Enorme avancée pour le z-wave que cet utilitaire.
    Avez vous validĂ© le transfert du rĂ©seau sur 2 clĂ©s de Fabricants diffĂ©rents? (Par exemple sauvegarde d’une clĂ© ZMEEUZB1 et restauration du rĂ©seau sur une clĂ© Aeotec Z-stick Gen 5 ? )
    Merci pour votre retour et mile fois merci pour cet utilitaire.
    Cdt

    1. Bonjour Bertrand,
      Merci pour votre commentaire qui me fait tres plaisir.
      OUI : le backup d’une clef d’un fabricant peut etre restaure sur une clef d’un autre fabricant.
      Ceci a ete teste par beaucoup d’utilisateurs…
