1. Does backup and restore work?
If you mean from EZServe to Harmony Gateway, the answer is no. They are completely different. If you mean for the Harmony Gateway, you can backup and restore the files using a FTP CLient manually.
2. Do we have to use the smartenit website to do configuration or can we still use the java app and directly interface with the device?
What kind of configuration do you mean? The iSmartenit App guides you through all configuration, the first time you set it up. When you open the App, it discovers your Gateway, then saves all your settings, guides you to set the password, pin, recover email, zip code etc..
