How does import/export configuration feature work?

It is first important to note that this feature in only available in the Pro version of ImperiHome.
Two phases:

  • Export: On the source device, in the general preferences of the application, click on “Export configuration”. Choose what to export (everything by default) and then the method to send the file (e-mail, gmail, google drive …)
  • Import: On the destination device, first ensure that ImperiHome Pro is also installed. Then, retrieve the configuration file sent during the export and just open it. ImperiHome will start automatically and will ask you to confirm and to choose what to import.

Simple as that!

NB : If your export file does not open in ImperiHome when you try to re-import it, then try to open with the free third party app free "ES File explorer" :

  • Start ES File Explorer
  • File the export JSON file and tap on it
  • In the "Open as" popup, select "Other"
  • And in the next popup, select "ImperiHome Conf Import"

    Yes, it depends of the software used to open the file.
    With esexplorer, you must select "text" and then follow the instructions

    Good feature. What would make it better ( imho) is if a device ( say wall mounted tablet) could periodically, check a location like google drive, for a config file and reload it.

    This way the end devices could update as and when a new config is available.

    Greetings ... can I edit the .json file exported? I replaced a Vera controller and need to change the old controller reference to the new controller. Is this possible?

    Recently, I am having a problem with import on SOME devices.  I have been using this feature for more than the past year without any problems.  I export the file on Device A and then import on Device B, etc.  Upon import, the ImperHome Conf Import screen loads, but is blank and the file never imports.  The same file will import on other Devices (ie, Device C).  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advace!

    Hi I am using the import feature for the first time and did as you suggested with ES File explorer.

    Once you start the import sequence the screen stays black and nothing happens further.

    Any suggestions?
