So far, I’m loving this app - but before I get too far and lose data, I want to understand how backup and sync options work with multiple devices / multiple rooms.
Initially, I thought iCloud sync would make sense, but on reflection perhaps not, since it would require me to log in with my personal iCloud account on iPads and iPhones in my house that weren’t “mine”, giving easy access to my other personal data.
So is there some other way to sync multiple iOS devices?
Beyond this, how does back up work? Is the backup from each iOS device tagged in some way so if I need to restore (say, from Dropbox), it “picks” the right backup? If it simply picks the most recent backup, this could be a problem if I last backed up my Family Room iPad, and then choose to restore my Home Theater iPad config, and it auto selects the Family Room config because it was the most recent.
I emailed the configs from both iPads, but they are titled identically, so this will get confusing pretty quick. In essence, what’s the best way to manage backup of multiple devices safely, and is their an alternative to syncing that doesn’t require the use of my personal iCloud account.
Also, is there a way to copy room configs from one device to another
I guess I’m trying to understand best practices here so I don’t paint myself in a corner with building rooms on multiple devices…
