Altsteon Getting Started / How To Read First
« Reply #90 on: June 28, 2018, 02:52:48 am »
Thanks for the reply, Ill keep that in mind when Im starting the seeds mid-february. About the variety, Im sure Id like some variety as time goes by aswell, but since this is my very first time Id like to kinda keep it "safe" with blends Im already familiar with. =

What about the LED Growlights I bought? Anyone got any experience with those?

I am having issues with the copy to vera step
6a) Copy the files inside the 'vera-binaries' directory to the '/overlay/sbin/ directory' using SCP

I don't have a /overlay/sbin directory.

I have a VeraEdge.  Not sure if this makes any difference



Bill, care to share what you did to get this working. I too have the exact same issue you state here on my VeraPlus UI7

Sorry. Just saw this question. I am not sure if v+ has a different directory structure or if they are the same. Honestly I can?t remember what I did. I switched to a V+ and didn?t move my insteon stuff. It just didn?t work consistently and was a pain to add devices. I was only saving a couple dollars and now they sell floor mounted zwave flood sensors.

I know this a very old thread.

I have an Vera Lite with Alsteon running for years. It has been running great and I haven't messed with it in probably 3-4 years now. I recently got a Amazon Echo and it seems that I need to use the new Vera firmware (I think I am still on UI5) to make use of the Echo.

Can I update the firmware to UI7 without worrying that Altsteon will crash? Or if I update is there a preferred method so that I don't have to redo everything that is setup currently.

Hi Antonio,

Let me suggest that you contact Vera Customer Care. There are some potential issues with upgrading a Vera Lite to the latest UI7 firmware, most having to do with limited memory space on the VL. They might also be able to help with your question about Alesteon.
