The ‘Backup’ area contains a list of all automatic and manual backups for each of your controllers. EZLogic automatically creates a daily backup of your current configuration at 3 AM every day, covering every controller added to your account. You can also create an on-demand backup at any time by clicking the ‘Create Backup’ link.

Click ‘Settings’ > ‘Backups’ in the left-hand menu to open the interface:

Why do I need backups?
  • One-click restore — Get EZLogic up and running again in minutes should there be a problem with your controller or a loss of data.
  • Failsafe protection — Run an on-demand backup just prior to installing new firmware on your controller, or before testing major changes to your dashboard or network setup.
  • Avoid downtime and security lapses — Automation plays an increasingly vital role in the security and productivity of home and work environments. Restoring from a backup in the event of a failure lets you make sure any interruptions are kept to an absolute minimum.
  • Reliable, secure storage — Your backups are securely encrypted and stored on our highly secure, always-available cloud servers. They will always be available to your account whenever you need them.
What’s included in each backup?

Each backup contains the following items per controller:

  • Meshbots created on the controller in EZLogic
  • Physical devices added to your account for the controller *
  • Virtual devices created in the virtual container
  • Device Associations
  • Expressions and variables that you have created
  • Lua Scripts you have saved to ‘My Private Scripts’
* Scope of backup

Each backup covers your entire EZLogic setup at the time the backup was created, but will not restore physical devices if they have been removed / become unpaired from your controller. For example, if your controller suffers a hard crash which clears your devices.

You will first need to re-import any lost devices and your Z-Wave network via the Vera web UI. Vera creates a daily backup of your controllers and Z-Wave network.

  • Log into your Vera account at https://home.getvera.com/users/login.
  • Connect to the controller you want to configure.
  • Click ‘Settings’ > ‘Backup’.
  • Choose the backup to which you want to restore your controller. The most recent backup is at the top of the list.
  • Click the ‘Restore’ link:
  • Repeat the process for all controllers on your network.
  • Log into EZLogic and use the restore backup feature on each controller if required.

More information on Vera backups is available on this help page.
