Sorry to hear that. Most likely it's a mistake
I've asked around what's the deal with that message. I'll keep you posted.

Hello.
Is this product going to allow for (more than just simplistic) logic constructs to make up a real rules engine? Or, will we have to continue using all of those extra
s like PLEG etc.

Part of the new venture, we're proud to announce that VeraMobile 7.0.28 is LIVE.
We're launching an update that is the product of the last few months of planning, hard work, stabilization and incredibly insightful input from our community and customers.

We're excited to see it go live, and we're excited about what it means for all of our legacy customers moving forward.

So, what exactly changed?

Most notable

Geofence - Improvement: Updated geofence mechanism to work with the new limitations on Android 8/9
Geofence: Fixed  the issue where concurrent geofence updates were not properly handled

New Features

  • Added the Controller list page with status for controllers ( online/offline), display the weather and location of the controller
  • Added username validation on create new user

Fixes and Improvements

  • Improvement: The enrolment flow saves the controller time zone
  • Improvement: user interface related to camera permission
  • Improvement:when the Create account fails, the user is informed if the email address or username are in use
  • Improvement: on the thermostats layout
  • Fixed the issue from the Scenes / Notify these users page when Other users were not displayed
  • Fixed the issue from the Preset Modes when Other users were not displayed
  • Fixed the issue related to the redirect of the user to controller list after deleting the current controller
  • Fixed the display of the Qubino ZMNHJD1 (Pilot Wire)
  • Fixed the issue with the connection to the controller which was lost every few seconds in a specific environment
  • Fixed the issue when the dimming level was not in sync with the status of the dimmer in the scene creation menu
  • Fixed the crash when establishing a connection to the controller
  • Fixed the issue when the device state wasn?t sent and displayed properly
  • Fixed the issue when the app restarted after adding a picture to an existing account
  • Fixed slider display for dimmer
  • Fixed the issue when the user tried to change the temperature (up / down) for the Thermostat SRT322

Fixed and stabilized hundreds of other identified issues on previous releases.

As always, if you have any feedback or issues with the new release we'd love to hear it through any of the available channels.

Is there any chance we can create a user account level that is ONLY geofence with no other access level?  Just the Vera app logged in so that it notifies of geofence settings? 

My reasoning is that I have some things that can be turned on/off that I don't necessarily want my young child having the ability to do, yet I'd like to turn the furnace/Air Conditioner on when he gets home from school.  Additionally, I have a back room that has a playstation/TV that gets shutdown automatically after inactivity.  I don't want them to be able to turn it back on without asking me first.  You see, I've had them get up at 2am on a school night to play it and I can't hear it from my bedroom...

I suppose I could create a no-notifications type of basic user for my young kids.

Second suggestion is when I enable geofence, why do I only get the options of arm/disarm for security sensors?  I'd like to have the option of "no change" included or have the option to disable sensor arming associated with geofence.  Geofence alone isn't good enough to know when someone is home because it requires a device to be carried at all times (costly and not feasible with young kids).  This also has to be a registered device (not feasible with extended relatives staying).  I use the combination of motion, device ping, and now geofence to determine if someone is home or not.  Only when all fail to register within x minutes, I then arm my sensors.

I like how the geofencing is working right now with the Android app, my wife's iOS version wasn't updating as of this morning.  For Android, it's been working flawless for the past 48 hours or so. 

Unfortunately it's still useless for me to use this app as my primary application on my phone.  I have a LOT of devices, probably over 150 in 21 rooms and that doesn't include a bunch of scenes.  The amount of scrolling is crazy.  Imperihome isn't great with it, but at least it's left/right for rooms make it somewhat bearable.  Also, I'd prefer to have scenes and devices together which would only compound Vera's apps issues with scrolling.  Having to go through a separate menu to turn 3 lights on at once instead an individual light on just adds to the "this isn't saving me time or effort" feeling and increases my "my wife isn't going to use this" sense.

OMG I've had issues with geofencing since day one and then all of a sudden it's been working perfectly for the last week. Didn't realize it got updated until I seen this discussion. Thank You!

It seems that when my phone or the app gets updated, then the geofencing stops working because the app is closed.  I have to reopen the app for it to work.  I wish the app would autostart the geofencing service.  My wife and kids don't usually use the app and I'd like for it to essentially be transparent for them while keeping the geofencing functioning. 

Second, it seems when I start the app in a separate location from when it closed down it won't reapply the correct geofence location.  For instance if my phone gets updated at night while on the charger and then I don't notice it until I'm at work, the app will still continue to register me as at home.

Apps that don't have custom notification sounds coded in leverage the notification system of Android. So without Vera adding this into the app you are stuck with whatever you have set for default sounds on the phone.
