If you would like to copy your network information to another controller, you must add the controller to the Z-Wave network using the normal device add process. Once the controller has been successfully added to the Z-Wave network, all network configuration will be automatically transferred to the new controller.

SmartStart installation

SmartStart enabled products can be added into a Z-Wave network by scanning the Z-Wave QR Code present on the product with a controller providing SmartStart inclusion. No further action is required and the SmartStart product will be added automatically within 10 minutes of being switched on in the network vicinity.

To remove a device, go to Settings > Devices and choose your device. You can then delete it by clicking remove and following your manufacturers directions to put the device into exclusion mode. If a device is not on the network, you may fail the remove and then be prompted to remove the failed device. This will remove the device from the network without it being present. If you would like to add your device to another system, then you will need to reset the device per the manufacturers instructions. You can use the general exclusion for resetting devices as well under Settings > Devices > Going to your base > Selecting advanced settings and then clicking General Exclusion.

Factory reset Smart Home Hub

If this controller is the primary controller for your network, resetting it will result in the nodes in your network being orphaned and it will be necessary after the reset to exclude and re-include all of the nodes in the network. If this controller is being used as a secondary controller in the network, use this procedure to reset this controller only in the event that the network primary controller is missing or otherwise inoperable. In order to factory reset your Z-Wave network, go to Settings > Devices > Choose your Base > Open Advanced Settings and then select Z-wave Reset Controller. After a few seconds, the Base will beep to indicate that your Z-Wave network has been reset. Any devices which were part of your Z-Wave network will need to be reset before they can be re-added. Use the Z-Wave General Exclusion menu under Settings > Devices > Choose your Base > Open Advanced Settings to do this.

To add a Z-Wave device, go to Settings > Devices > Click on the add button and then select the type of device. The base will then go into inclusion mode and you will be prompted to follow your manufacturers instructions to put the device into inclusion mode. Once the device is added you will hear a confirmation beep from your base and you will be brought to a screen to name the device and to choose an icon.

To access the SmartStart Provisioning list, go to Settings > Devices > Going to your base > Selecting advanced settings and then clicking Smart

If you would like to add the Base into another Z-Wave network, you must first delete all Z-Wave devices from the Base before proceeding. Once all devices have been deleted, follow the instructions on the other controller to put it into add mode. Once the other Z-Wave controller is in add mode, you can place the Base into learn mode by navigating to Settings > Devices > Choosing your base > Opening Advanced Options.
From this menu, select Z-Wave Learn Mode to put the Base into learn mode. Follow the instructions on the other controller to complete the add process. Once the add is complete, the Base will request a copy of the other Z-Wave network configuration, and the network devices will appear on the Blue by ADT iOS, Android, and web applications.
When the Base is included in another Z-Wave network, it will ignore Basic Z-Wave commands that are sent to it.
