I have not implemented SiLabs backup yet in the service - it’s available on Zigpy so it’s posible, but I have a ZNP based system.
I bet that Elelabs would be willing to donate a couple of Silabs adapters if you be interested in adding it:
They indirectly contribute to the community by providing tools/firmware and sponsoring with hardware:
PS: Official “Home Assistant Yellow” formerly “Home Assistant Amber” will have Silicon Labs hardware:
. I’m sure that SiLabs would prefer to be a “Design in” on products I do professionnally.
It’s not only a question of having the equipment (I could probably hack a LIDL gateway which I believe is based on a SiLabs chip), but more a question of time - especially debugging - and of potentially breaking my home setup, or setting up other systems just for testing.
So maybe I’ll add the code some day, but I add(ed) the tools that seem useful to me (which is an important motivator when doing it “for free”).
I added bellows/ezsp backup to zha-toolkit, but as far as I gather from a quick examination of the video a newer version of bellows is needed to backup to the open-coordinator-format.
Some kind of backup was confirmed by @bartem Weird error · Issue #1 · mdeweerd/zha-toolkit · GitHub so it’s promising.
I believe you tagged the wrong “bart” … I’m assuming you mean the one in the GitHub issue?
Yes, I assumed that you were the one from the GitHub issue ;-).
Just so I am clear. this method above will not let you backup conbee based zha and restore to the same conbee based zha?
Not yet but some ZHA/zigpy developers are working on universal backup and restore support for all zigpy radio libraires via a new “zigpy-cli” tool. Read more about it in here:
Testers testing it have confirmed that the patches in the mentioned pull request works with ConBee:
There is also more related discussion about ZHA backup and restore features in a request thread here:
Suggest that all of you vote in that request thread to help indicate interest in such a feature in ZHA’s UI.
