myCrestron Deploy Code Import

Use the myCrestron Deploy Code Import screen to load a system configuration created in the Crestron Home Configurator using a Deploy code.

To restore a backup configuration, factory reset the device and then transfer data using a deploy code. For details, refer to Reset to Factory Defaults and Transfer Data using a Deploy Code (Recommended).

NOTE: Retain the myCrestron cloud data associated with the processor. For details, refer to Reset to Factory Defaults.

To view the myCrestron Import screen, select System Settings Icon Settings > System Configuration > myCrestron Deploy Code Import.

  • Replace the current configuration: Erase the current configuration and load a configuration created using the Crestron Home Configurator. To replace the configuration, refer to Replace the Configuration.

  • Update the current configuration: Update a configuration with the latest Crestron Home Configurator configuration. To update the configuration, refer to Update the Current Configuration.

NOTES:

  • The Crestron Home processor must be connected to the internet to use a Deploy code.
  • Update the Crestron Home processor to the latest firmware. To update the firmware, refer to Software Update.

Replace the Configuration

Deploying a new configuration will erase the configuration on the Crestron Home processor.

To replace the configuration:

  1. Select Replace the current configuration and then NEXT.

  2. Enter the Deploy code and then select NEXT.

  3. The server validates the deploy code and then displays the system information. Verify the system information and then select NEXT.

  4. The current configuration is deleted and then the new configuration is imported. After the import completes, the import summary displays.

  5. To complete the import, select Done.

Update the Current Configuration

Update a configuration with the latest Crestron Home Configurator configuration. The changes made in the Crestron Home Configurator are merged with the existing configuration.

Best Practice

  • Deploy lighting systems made with the Crestron Home Configurator before adding AV components to the system. This will prevent conflicts with the room name.
  • Create all rooms in the Crestron Home Configurator even if there are no lighting components added to it. This will prevent a conflict if lighting is added in the future and the system is redeployed.
  • Use the Crestron Home Configurator to configure all aspects of the lighting system. This includes creating rooms and scenes, load assignments, and button actions.
  • To assign non-lighting functions to a keypad button, select None from the Button Mode drop-down menu and then select Preserve Crestron Home Settings. For details, refer to Actions Tab. Changes made using the Crestron Home Setup app will not be overwritten during a Redeploy.

Redeploy Rules

The following import rules will be maintained each time the configuration is deployed on the processor.

NOTE: For a list of example redeploy scenarios, refer to Redeploy Examples.

  • Items created using the Crestron Home Configurator: If an imported item, such as a room, device, or scene, originates from an import using the Crestron Home Configurator, the imported item will be updated during future imports. For example, changes made to the configuration, such as renaming a room, moving a device to a different room, or deleting a device or scene, will also be made in the Crestron Home Setup app when the configuration is imported again.

    NOTE: Load assignments made in the Crestron Home Configurator are considered to be part of the device. Adding, removing, or changing a load assignment in the configurator will overwrite the previous assignments after a redeploy.

  • Configuration is Copied in the Crestron Home Configurator: If a configuration is copied in the Crestron Home Configurator and then the copy is imported, the association between the items in the Crestron Home Configurator and the Crestron Home Setup app is maintained. Changes made in the copy of the configuration will be made during an import. To copy a configuration, refer to Copy a Configuration.
  • Items created with the Crestron Home Setup app: Items created in the Crestron Home Setup app will not be updated by an import. If a name conflict occurs, the item created locally using the Crestron Home Setup app will be renamed by prefixing "(local)" to the name and the item created in the configuration is added. For example, if a room named "Atrium" is created using the Crestron Home Setup app and a room named "Atrium" is imported, the room created using the Crestron Home Setup app will be renamed "(local) Atrium" and the room created in the configuration is added with the name "Atrium."
  • Imported and then modified in the Crestron Home Setup app: If a device is imported and then modified using the Crestron Home Setup app, the changes will be overwritten if the import is performed again. The only exception is for keypad programming. To preserve changes to keypad programming made in the Crestron Home Setup app, select Preserve Keypad Programming in the Crestron Home Configurator.
