It looks nice but you need to make the platform stable and fast, in that order, first!

Other than being excruciatingly slow, the current UI is mostly ok - my main gripe is it's slow to update (needing to force page refreshes is just poor form) and poor UI organisation, eg reboot the device in the WiFi settings ... seriously! *facepalm*

UI looks good....but I was never hung up on the Vera UI.  I wanted stability, dependability and something that my wife could use in a pinch.  I try to automate things hoping to make her a fan and have achieved a recent degree of stability by dumbing things down with Vera.  Promised advertised features NEED to work with a HIGH degree of reliability.  (Take geofencing for instance....for me its a hot mess leading to much wife agro)

Stability, dependability is a given....we are on it! We have enough resources and different resources to help improve UI as well. Because our users want it, we want to provide it to our users...So lets keep this thread to UI discussion only please so that we can understand all the feedback for usability of the UI. Thank you guys!

This has been the best vera week in a long time. Almost feels like Christmas!

I like the app look. Similar to ImperiHome.

What about the desktop UI?

Keeping it all UI....

I like it.  I like the idea of what I think I am seeing.  Things like "who is home."  Seems to allow for more user customization if I am interpreting things right.  Like the grouping on the left.  Devices, Scenes, Groups with the bottom tabs of Dashboard, rooms, etc...  That could work nicely I think.

You're right, we are only seeing half the story here. I'm more concerned about the web UI.
Although to me a UI isn't a deal breaker as Home Automation should always be working in the background and not be a fancy remote.
Living in the Land of Oz, give me a vegemite sandwich. Home Seer, Vera Lite & Edge, Popp, Black Cat Smart Hub & Vera G, Black Cat Lite 1 & 2's a Black Cat Dimmer or 2, Fantem Tec and then some  Black Cat Cat's Eye PIR's & Door-Window Sensors, RFXComm, Broadlink RMPro & Mini plus a Z-UNO or 2.

Looks good

Don't forget tablet mode, which is as, or possibly more important. With some ability to zoom/scale. A 5" phone vs 8" tablet or 10" tablet should have completely different icon densities even if they are all at 1080p.

For multifunction devices (multisensor, power monitor outlet, power strips, etc) will need to be able to specify which data elements and/or controls are exposed.

UI looks nice from a mobile device perspective but majority of scene configuration for myself is done via a PC.

Can we see a desktop view?

I am going to wait and see. Look forward to the result melih. I hope you won't break the current local open API in the process since it is the one thing that is still keeping me around.

Looks good  :) The possibility for virtual switches should be part of the system from beginning.

Agreed, Virtual switches are super useful!

That looks great!

I really hope to see a big change, and the news this week sounds extremely promising. Really hope you guys succeed with the plans you have for Vera, nothing would make me happier. Please make it happen, as soon as possible!  :)
