Because we know how much you love to control your Fibaro FGS-223 with Google Home and Vera, I have some great news for you.

We have fixed the issues regarding Fibaro FGS-223 delays when controlled and it will be part of the upcoming 7.29 Vera firmware release alongside Google Home integration

Thanks guys for listening. My wife will definitely appreciate it. And I will too. Happy wife means more automations  :D

Love the Slogan.... "Happy Wife More Automation" !!!! we found our marketing slogan!

Still unclear somewhat...  Is the Atom or PlugHub a replacement for the existing Vera platform?  I assume so.  Will there be a way to do a clean migration?  I have 150+ ZWave devices that I had to reprogram, fix scenes, PLEG, etc when I moved to Vera Secure.

If I have to do that again, I'll do a normal bake-off between other platforms.

If it's an easy/safe migration....well...then....the choice is much easier.

You can continue using your existing hardware. You don't have to switch.

Thanks.  I appreciate the response.  My question stemmed from the thought that if I DID choose to switch, is there a migration plan (especially for the ZWave network).

Any idea when the Alexa API will be re-written to include sensors as triggers for Alexa routines?

Is this going to be a global release or just USA?

I need to do some research on the Atom.  I read it was Z-Wave, but don?t remember Zigbee or Bluetooth.   Also not sure if Atom requires the cloud to run or can run stand alone?  I really want a system that can run regardless of the status of the internet connection.

The Specs tell you nothing.

Might be a Atom 2, but if it's USB I don't see it having local control.
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.

It would be nice to see a new vera unit (no matter what its called) that has the addition of apple homekit so that its once again up to date and able to control all of the main protocols.  For me that has always been one of the advantages of Vera.  As a user you can then build a system from the various items that work best for you, ao a good hardware improvement into a next gen would be nice.

Its good to see new hardware but it feels like this is a diversion into a "consumer" product that is far from having a "pro" angle.  So far sounds like something that's aimed at selling lots on amazon but missed out most of the key bits (I get it, everyone needs revenue to stay afloat).

I've used a vera for years across many different modes but it looks like it could end up getting replaced for us as other things are becoming a more attractive option.  The wide range of apps created by the user base have been a strong pull for us for a very long time but again other mfrs are starting to catch up and providing things built in or a similar app store.  For the last few years good devs have been moving to other platforms and the excellent deves that keep their apps going for Vera are one of its stregths but they have not always been treated very well (the hue app was one example). (we're hugely grateful to those devs of the apps we rely on).

Interested to see the new hardware and firmware, hopefully the future will be bright and some of the long term issues will be resolved as the next big step comes.

My concern as well, and the small write up only mentions Z wave.   I do think there is a place for a low cost solution, but I want more than that.

I asked that question specifically on the thread. They both look like cloud only to me, but...
