Backup and Restore

Your Hubitat Elevation™ hub automatically generates a backup every day at 3:00am in your local time zone. These backups are stored on the hub for five days. After making changes to your hub (adding devices, automations, etc.), it is a good idea to do a manual backup and download it to your computer or storage device.

  1. Go to the Settings page in your Hubitat Web Interface.
  2. Select the Backup and Restore button.

  3. Select the Download button under the Create New Backup and Download Manually section (you can also download any of the automatic backups that have been stored). The backup will be saved on your computer, which can be uploaded later to restore your hub to its current state if you desire.
