Migrate System Data to a Different Processor

Migrate data between different Crestron Home processors by transferring the system data to a new Crestron Home processor. Data can also be transferred between Crestron Home processors as a means of transferring system data from a test system to a live system or to replace a processor.

There are three methods of transferring system data. The transfer method used depends on the location of the system data and available components.

  • Transfer data using a deploy code: Transfer system data from a cloud backup to a new Crestron Home processor. The deploy code is the most versatile method of transferring data and is recommended for most situations. The Crestron Home processor system data must be backed up using the myCrestron Residential Monitoring Service.

    For details, refer to Transfer Data using a Deploy Code (Recommended).

  • Copy data between processors: Transfer system data by copying the data from an old processor to a new processor. The file transfer is performed with an FTP client. The system data being copied must be previously copied and stored or both control processors must be available.

    For details, refer to Copy Data between Control Processors.

  • Copy data from a cloud backup file: Transfer system data by downloading a Golden Configuration backup file from the myCrestron Residential Monitoring Service and transferring the backup to a new processor. The file transfer is performed with an FTP client. The Crestron Home processor system data must be backed up using the myCrestron Residential Monitoring Service or the Golden Configuration backup file must be previously downloaded and stored.

    For details, refer to Copy Data from a myCrestron Cloud Backup File.
