I don't see MiOS or Vera on the CES 2019 Exhibitor's list.  Do you have a booth location?  I assume it's inside the Z-Wave Alliance booth, as it has been in the past.  I was surprised not to see it listed.

They showed the 1200 can last year and promised a release shortly after, but never happened.  Hopefully they will change that this year.

Would not hold my breath but still am curious about what they will be announcing. In my mind the top priority should be to::
1. Develop a bug fixed and more stable LuaUPNP program (aka Luup engine) addressing random luup reloads and zwave command stacks. (UI8?)
2. Firmware to enable offline/cloud independent mode
3. Look at some more up to date hardware maybe moving CPU to ARM64 and some more memory and more reliable flash.
4. Catching up to competition with features and integrations. At this point more integration which I think the vera already has a lot of, on a buggy base is just going to collapse.

Well, the new parent eZLO is listed in the Z-Wave Alliance Pavillion, which is where Mios would be as well:

Code: [Select]
eZLO Inc. is introducing a new AI audio and video processing unit, new Exo 300 and Exo400 Linux-based control hubs, and the Omni 100 with Z-Wave 700-series technology.
No one in attendance?  In the past we have had someone stop by their booth and take pics.  I have attended two CEDIAs, but never CES...
Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)

Mios at CES 2019

Vera has a small presence in the Z-Wave Alliance booth at the Sands. Vera is now owned by Ezlo, which also owns Fortrezz.  I was told several things from several different people at the booth:
- a major upgrade (UI8) is due in March 2019.
- a new, smaller one-protocol controller is due soon. It's the small white box in the photo.
- integration with Google Home is thisclose

Strangely, the Vera Secure, VeraEdge, and VeraPlus were on display, but no one really wanted to talk about them much.  I was steered toward the small box, with no real demonstration of what it can do.

Less than two months away. Get ready for a fire drill, fellow plugin developers. I would have hoped we'd be seeing pre-releases at less than T-60 days.

There appears to be three variations of the small white box:  exo300 and exo400, and a plug-in module, the Omni 200.  I was surprised that when I asked what's next for Vera, there wasn't a positive, reassuring answer.  Instead, I was pointed toward the exo300.  Maybe the sales people just don't know what's in Vera's future.

Elsewhere in the Z-Wave Alliance booth, there are new sensors, switches, and sirens in the pipeline, including an outdoor siren.  When I asked if they were compatible with Vera, two separate vendors sort of smirked and said, basically, "No, Vera is very interested in adding these items, but they're busy rebuilding, getting their platform right."
