Done,

it seems to connect to Veralite. Has changed the connection symbol on the top right of Homewave from remote (cloud) to wifi. I've have wifi not active on iphone.



But I'm not sure if directly of via Mios. I don't have to put anything in the URL (Internet) field ?

You can empty out the MiOS username and password fields, which will prevent you connecting via the forwarding servers. If it works, you're using the VPN.

I get that too. I think the symbol is representing local/remote rather than which transceiver is active.

How would you configure Homewave to use a DNS server to access Vera to bypass the mios servers?

It's not possible to open websites from within HomeWave.
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

@ intveltr

I think that would be a great feature if it were easy to add -- a control that displays a webkit view of a url, for example to show my pool controller's web page without having to leave HW and go to Safari.

So Homewave cannot bypass the Vera servers?    I am looking to be totally independent from Vera servers.    Another question..........If you leave Vera,  will Homewave continue to work?

I don't think any app bypasses the vera servers except for local control. I also don't think many have successfully setup or continue to use vpn/ port forwarding to their veras due to security reasons.

I am curious because doesn't Homewave when connected to my Home WiFi network communicate directly with Vera and not go through the Vera servers?

You can bypass the Vera servers by setting up port forwarding on your router (insecure, not recommended) or by setting up a VPN. If you use port forwarding, enter the address and port to your Vera as accessible from the Internet in the URL field of the Vera settings in Homewave, and select Direct to Vera

You mean if you kill your account at Mios / Getvera?  It'll still work, but on your LAN only unless you set up the aforementioned VPN / Port forwarding.
