Backing Up and RestoringΒΆ

Once you've configured your SimplySNAP installation to your liking, Synapse Wireless recommends you backup the configuration as soon as possible to allow for later restoration should the need arise. It's also advisable you perform a backup before performing a System Upgrade or Factory Reset, all of which is accomplished from the Backup/Restore tab on the Config page.

The system configuration backup is a backup of site controller specific information, and is not the same as backing up configured lights. That is accomplished via .CSV file as described in Importing and Exporting Lights.

To backup a SimplySNAP installation:

  1. Access the Backup/Restore screen by clicking Config in the navigation menu, and then clicking the Backup/Restore tab.
  2. Click the Save Backup button near the top of the screen. This will write all system settings to an sqlite file and transfer the file to your downloads directory of the device running your web browser.

To restore a SimplySNAP installing:

  1. Access the Backup/Restore screen by clicking Config in the navigation menu, and then clicking the Backup/Restore tab.
  2. Click the Restore from Backup button near the center of the screen. A warning message will appear and give you the option of continuing with the restoration, or canceling the operation. Select Restore if you wish to continue with the restoration.
  3. Browse to and select the SimplySNAP backup file you wish to restore, then click the Open button. This will restore your system settings from the backup.
