==What is Replacing a Device==


It is the ability to take a new device and replace an existing device. It exchanges the links from the old device to the new one so there is no relinking to be done by the user. It also locates links to the old device in all other devices and replaces them with links to the new device.

*Both devices have to be the same type of device in order for the new device to be displayed in the replace menu.


'''"Replace....with" command:'''
==The Process of Replacing a Device==
This menu option allows you to replace a defective device assigned to a device name with a new
device. The ISY takes care of removing the defective device address from the device name and
adding the new device address into the existing device name. It will swap all the linking
information from the defective devices to the new device.

'''Known problem:'''  As of version 2.6 firmaware, there is no requestor message directing the user to put into "linking mode" any RemoteLincs included in scenes of which the Replaced device is a controller.  Therefore, it will be necessary to do this at the beginning of the "Replace....with" process, even though no reminder is presented.

'''Known Problem:'''  As of version 2.6 firmware, this command will leave programs that have used the replaced device's name in an unspecified state for that device.  To fix this, after performing the "Replace....with" command, review all programs that have used the "Replaced" device's name, re-select the proper device, and re-save the program.
