With Homey +, cloud backups for the Homey universal home automation gateway arrive

In our review of Homey on macitynet now several months ago we had highlighted an important lack in the characteristics of the multiradio home automation gateway that also brings many non-Homekit accessories to the Apple platform: the absence of a configuration, automation and data backup system collected during the day.

The manufacturer officially announced the new one on February 18 Homey +, a service at a cost of 0.99 per month, including a 1-month free trial, which includes access to Homey Cloud backups: once registered, Homey will automatically create a backup every night.

Secure backup to the cloud

With the many hours it takes to automate and personalize a home automation home, make sure that if something goes wrong it is easier to get everything back up and running effortlessly: with a backup, all the data of the connected devices with related configurations, Flows (automations) and Insights are stored safely.

The last 7 Homey backups are stored in the cloud. Backups are associated with the owner's account. A maximum of 3 Homey can be backed up to a single user account.In summary: an account can store a maximum of 21 total backups and can manage and delete backups with the Homey account.

Easily migrate between different Homeys

Cloud backups can also be used to easily restore existing Homey to a previous state (backup), to migrate to a new Homey or to easily switch from a standard model to a new Homey Pro.
